Within an hour you can be at Mt. Hood or in just a little longer, on the Oregon coast. Within 2 miles, you can walk, bike, or drive to numerous restaurants and bars from coffee bistros and fast food to sports bars, breweries and fine dining. Pharmacies, groceries, department stores, Frys Electronics, the Family Fun Center, and many more retail shops are also available in Wilsonville. World of Speed is now open in Wilsonville for racing fans to enjoy.

If you are traveling for genealogy or history, we are very knowledgeable about our pioneer cemeteries, museums, and heritage attractions. The Aurora Colony is located just 5 miles away with many antique shops and museums. One of the most recent trees to gain status as an Oregon State Heritage Tree, the R.V. Short Fir, stands just outside this farmhouse.

About Pat & Susan Harrison and Charlotte Lehan

Susan and Charlotte grew up in the other house on the property. Susan and her husband, Pat, live there with Charlotte. The three of us took on the challenge of moving this little house in order to save it from demolition. In the process we have learned a great deal about architectural restoration and we love to talk DIY with anyone who is interested! Talk about an adventure in moving!

Pat & Susan Harrison and Charlotte Lehan purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Pat & Susan Harrison and Charlotte Lehan chose Willamette Valley

This little farm house, originally located in what is now Villebois, was slated for demolition when we decided to move it 1.5 miles to sit next to its sister house, of similar vintage and style that Susan and Charlotte grew up in. It is an example of the best of 1941 craftsmanship in a modest farm home. In the process of moving it we made the updates necessary to offer all the amenities and technology that any discerning business traveler has come to expect.

What makes this cottage unique

If you have an interest in architectural history or renovation we are sure you will enjoy this property, but even if you do not know a salt box from a log cabin, you will enjoy the privacy, comfort, amenities, location, and access this property has to offer.

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Wilsonville. I have stayed in several HomeAway houses and this one was by far the best equipped home. They thought of pretty much everything including the little things like having outlet plugs in the lights next your bed, plenty of towels, blankets, toilet paper, Kleenex, garbage bags, etc. These things make it so much easier to show up and not have to worry about anything but food and enjoying your stay. We very much appreciated it and would recommend this cute home to anyone. Thank you to the home owners. We appreciate the hospitality.

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the cottage. If you like the pictures, the cottage is so much better than the pictures. The owners are incredible, and it tells a lot more about them, by the way they have kept the cottage. Will most definitely would like to come back.

Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property because of its proximity to Langdon Farms Golf Club, the site for a wedding we attended. We have a family of five and had eight more over for a BBQ. The house fit our needs perfectly! We were excited about the bicycles that were made available, unfortunately they were not in what we would consider safe working condition. The park just below the home is perfect for kids - you can watch them from the house or walk down and join them! The location is quiet but close to everything you could need. We walked to the store one day - it's about a mile but a beautiful walk! Owners are very kind and accommodating. One of our favorite parts was the fresh eggs upon arrival! The resident chickens are fun and the grounds could not have been nicer. We also enjoyed the time and effort expended to explain the home's history and transition from farm to urban setting. The owners obviously care about this property and it shows!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for letting us know some of the bikes were in need of attention. We just dropped them all off at the bike shop for a full tune-up! Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again. Charlotte

Highly recommend!

The farmhouse was spotless and well-stocked with comfortable beds and high quality linens. There were five of us sharing the house and had plenty of space and privacy. The owners live next door and are wonderful hosts, ready to help with any questions.

Beautiful property, charming cottage - would love to stay again!

  • 5 of 5

This couldn't have been a better place for my family to spend the weekend. The house was very clean, in wonderful condition with beautiful natural light and had plenty of space for our family of five. The kids loved the property with the little pond, the playground at the bottom of the hill and had so much fun feeding the chickens. The dvd collection, kids toys and fresh eggs were a nice surprise as well. In the evening my husband and I loved spending time on the upper deck watching sunset. Sadly we didn't have time to ride bikes but there was a nice bike path below the house that we hope to check out next time. I highly recommend this house for anyone wanting a relaxing stay in the Wilsonville area.
