Why Carol Linderman chose First Addition
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.

Cozy, clean & convenient
My family of 4 absolutely loved our time here. Being in such cozy quarters was engaging and brought my littles even closer together. The place was so comfortable & clean. Had everything you need in the kitchen and was all good quality. The owners were really helpful and accommodating. Thank you for a pleasant stay!
The cottage was absolutely charming!! So much personality and style - immaculate and with many nice touches. Kitchen was well stocked. Can't wait to come back here! Weather did not cooperate to enjoy sitting in the yard but it looked very appealing. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
Amazing Place to Stay
We will recommend to everyone we know when they visit the area
Cozy cottage in Portland's "backyard"
We loved this cozy cottage! The owners were very hospitable and were available for any questions. We enjoyed then peaceful backyard. The only thing I would add would be a DVD player to watch movies to unwind.
Just a Gem!
Sadly , after an almost three week stay it was time to leave this charming cottage. Although, correctly, others have complained about the size of the bathroom, it is perfectly adequate despite being small and it is very clean as is the rest of the house. The kitchen is upgraded and is well outfitted if one wishes to cook at home. The proximity to shops and restaurants is excellent and the hosts are very responsive to any requests. Make your decision quickly on this one since it is popular.
Our 2nd Cottage Home.
What a delightful cottage to enjoy all that Lake Oswego AND Portland have to offer. This home is filled with all that we needed, and even more-where else can renters feel like they have their own backyard with room for lawn games or just sitting outside with family & friends-like we experienced. It's all about the perks and a big perk was the garage-where we could park our bikes and luggage--an exceptional plus. Lake Oswego is more than charming and this VRBO made our stay one of our favorites ever-(we have been VRBO' "ing" for a long time.) Thank you for being there. We hope to return when our calendars mesh.
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.
