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 Wilsonville
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.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Quaint on outside, quaint and roomy on the inside. Four adults three kids and space for everybody. We could gather in the living room to watch a movie, or retreat to rooms or decks for time alone. Very well appointed and decorated. Homey and comfortable in a beautiful setting. We've stayed in mansions and visited castles and we had more fun as a family here than anywhere else we've stayed. Our only regret is we didn't find out about the place sooner for our previous visits to George Fox University.
The hosts are FANTASTIC!!! Thanks you Charlotte, we look forward to visiting again.
We stay here once a year during our visit to the Portland area. We highly recommend this property! The rental is immaculately clean and the home is central to many fun things to do in Portland (30 minutes) and the Willamette Valley (15 minutes). The owners werre gracious hosts and were lightning fast with all questions and needs we had. We will never stay in a hotel again when visiting the Portland area!
A gorgeous place to stay with friendly owners.
The property is cozy and well appointed. The park is close and provides a great place for a walk. Everything you need for a couple of days or long term. With the upstairs this property makes for a great family get away spot.
A delightful stay.
This cottage was perfect for 2 couples and a baby. Everything was in pristine order, super clean and fully furnished. Great walking trails on the nature preserve right out the side door. Highly recommend.
So glad to host your family at Twin Oaks. It was a busy weekend for us but you seemed to manage everything on your own. Very precocious toddler and friendly dog were lots of fun to watch!
Immaculate Home - Peaceful Setting - Beautiful Property!
This home is fully stocked with anything and everything you may need for your stay. We were beyond comfortable during our 3 night stay that we ended up extending for a 4th evening! The owners are on-site and available to assist with anything you may need including additional firewood, fresh eggs from the chicken coop, or a quick story about the history of the property. We have stayed at several VRBO's and this was by far the most well taken care of property and enjoyable stay. We would highly recommend this feel-like-home charming cottage and look forward to staying here again in the future. Thank you to the Harrison and Lehan family for your exceptional hospitality!
We really enjoyed hosting your extended family and we are glad it worked out for your needs. BTW, did you vacuum and dust everything before you left? No one has ever left things this clean! Would love to have you back again!
A lovely mixture of farmhouse charm and modern amenities
We stayed at this property for a family vacation and would gladly recommend it. The house was larger than expected and beautifully furnished, with multiple sitting areas on the various decks in the back (and upstairs), a spacious suite with a small kitchenette and office upstairs, and a small decorative pond in the back. With two dishwashers, laundry, wifi, flameless fireplaces, and modern heating and plumbing, the house offers old-time charm without sacrificing modern comforts. The owners were friendly and accommodating. The property is in a residential neighborhood, but it adjoins a park and nature trails.
Twin Oaks is a modest 1941 farmhouse located next to a city park with a bike path connecting it to Graham Oaks Natural Area, a regional 250-acre nature park with trails and bike paths. Located just off Interstate-5 in Wilsonville, Oregon, it is convenient to the Portland metro area and the northern Willamette Valley.
