We welcome you to our cottage!
Jim and Carol have owned their cottage for 23 years. We love to travel both domestically and abroad and know that staying in comfortable unique place can make a vacation magical. We can be found cycling through the neighborhood, hiking through Tryon Creek, eating at a favorite restaurant, or attending one of our children's many school and sporting events.
Carol Linderman purchased this cottage in 1991
Proximity to parks, access to Portland, and a safe friendly community with great schools attracted us to this neighborhood over 23 years ago. We love it and have raised a family here taking advantage of all the community has to offer. We still live just 5 blocks away and are here to help you enjoy exploring the beautiful northwest from the comforts of our sweet cottage.
We enjoyed a very comfortable month long stay in this cute Lake Oswego cottage.
The cottage was WAY more then we expected. It was a small private house on a huge piece of property. The inside of the house has been updated and extremely clean.The area was well worth getting lost in, because it was absolutely breath taking. We knew we were in a well kept, and safe neighborhood. One evening we ate at an Irish pub right around the corner, but it was the cup cakes that topped the evening off at Kyra's. At first I was skeptical to go in because it was 100% gluten free, but I'm glad I tried them. You don't want to miss the cup cakes!! All of these places and more are in walking distances. We will be back!! Thanks Carol and Jim, you made our trip to Lake Oswego memorable.
and easy walk to down town.we have enjoyed our association with the owners. Very cooperative.
Excellent cottage, excellent location, excellent value. The back yard feels like home as it is so private and lush. The cottage is absolutely more than charming, incredibly clean, and easy to feel like it's your own. We have already booked for another summer week in 2017..could not pass it up..we'll be back as often as we can.
Lovely cottage. We were greeted by a deer in the back yard! Always great to have a washer and dryer. We enjoyed the big patio in the mornings and evenings.
Our cottage is located in a walking friendly neighborhood with close access to hiking trails, restaurants, boutique shopping, movie theater, library, post office, banks, grocery stores, multiple parks, seasonal farmers market, the Willamette River, and Oswego Lake. Just 14 minutes to downtown Portland and an hour to the beach or Mount Hood you will be perfectly located to explore all the Northwest has to offer.
