The Carriage House is close to mass transit, Lewis & Clark College, River View Natural Area, Tryon Creek State Park, numerous hiking/biking trails. It is minutes to downtown Portland, Lake Oswego, Multnomah Village, Sellwood, South Waterfront, OHSU. Tour "Wine Country" 1 hr.

Note: The Carriage House is located in a large, private garden in the Tryon Creek Watershed in SW Portland. The neighborhood is a large country area close in to downtown Portland. As such, the guest house is subject on occasion to seasonal tiny black ants. (No other creatures have been sited or reported.) This can occur especially when we experience heavy rains. The carriage house is treated safely for the ants. It can take a short period of time for the process to cycle.
Everything possible is done to keep the carriage house immaculate and free of these tiny ants. Ants have a sense of smell superior to that of a dog! While visiting, please do not leave food or crumbs out. Notify the host immediately if you discover even one tiny ant! Many other Other VBROs that are located in garden, beach and country settings experience much the same issue.
This listing can accommodate two persons who know each other well only.
Please do not make a reservation in your VBRO/HomeAway verified name for anyone else. Only VBRO/HomeAway verified guests are expected to stay at the Carriage House. VBRO verified guests making reservations are welcome to have a second non VBRO guest staying with him/her, but NOT alone without the VBRO verified guest.
I want your stay to be as comfortable and seamless as possible. Please read the description of the Carriage House and its amenities. If you have questions or need to request a change, please let your host know before check-in so that your changes can be accommodated and ready for you when you arrive.
Thank you for your courtesy.
