About Conrad Rios

My wife and I purchased this home in 2012 and have spent the last 3 years slowly renovating and upgrading the property. All of the rooms were taken down to the studs, walls were relocated, the ceiling was lifted, closets were added, doors were moved, a bathroom was added, skylight was installed upstairs, a complete kitchen remodel, spa style bathroom complete with a chandelier upstairs, all new flooring, all new furnishings. Everything within this home is brand new.

The deck addition is the perfect location for an evening family BBQ or a relaxing cocktail.

Conrad Rios purchased this house in 2012

Why Conrad Rios chose Forest Grove

We chose Forest Grove over other areas of Portland metro, due to the fact that it's out of the hustle and bustle, and offers a very small town feel within a short drive to the coast or to City Center in Portland.

Forest Grove is a friendly small town feel with live theater and arts and entertainment provided by Pacific University! We enjoy nature, hiking, golf and taking beautiful hikes through the forest. The convenience of having the rugged shoreline within an hour's drive is the icing on our cake!

This home felt like an adorable spacious cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in this home while we checked out Pacific University for our son. I had the whole upstairs to myself and felt like a princess. I tool a bath every day in that wonderful tub. The home was very clean and everything that we needed was available. I hope to stay here again when I visit my son at the university.

Very quaint and comfortable home!! Kitchen has great appliances and tools.

  • 5 of 5

A little smaller than I imagined but great kitchen and location! The back deck is awesome and really enjoyed sitting outside. It is obvious that this is a much older home under revision, but if you like older homes it is very charming!! Beds, only 3 available were very comfortable! Nice TVs in 3 rooms and furniture in living room really nice. This home comfortably accommodates 3 couples or a family with 2 or 3 children depending on their age and sex. We went with two teens, one boy and one girl, a grandpa, and a grandma, and another couple. Fortunately we brought air beds or else we would have had a problem. I don't think the site explains their accommodations so that it is clear. I believe it also said 4 bedrooms but only 3 actually there. I apologize if I am remembering incorrectly. At any rate I would stay here again as I loved the house and the convenience of its location.

We came for the solar eclipse and enjoyed viewing from the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in nearby McMinnville. The house was very comfortable and quiet. There are some beautiful trees on the property.

Great home and location!

  • 5 of 5

Located in a small town in the Willamette Valley, this property is a complete gem! It's easy to see this property has been restored with a lot of class and attention to detail. The home is extremely well equipped with everything anyone will need to enjoy this wonderful property.

The location is great for enjoying the Willamette Valley and it's vineyards, and a short drive to both the beautiful Oregon coast and the city of Portland. The wi-fi is excellent and the A/C is a definite plus! It was very hot while we were there. We highly recommend staying here, and we will definitely stay here again if we are ever in the area.

Great home in old town Forest Grove

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days at this location while visiting my 90 year old uncle and cousins. The home is roomy with areas to play cards and games. Decor is farmhouse chic and interesting. It is an older home, but recently modernized and clean. We would stay here again.
