About Debbie Derusha
We (Craig and Debbie) care for 10 senior citizens in two nearby adult care homes. Friends often say they want to be in our care when they get old - or reincarnated as one of our dearly loved pets. We have worked hard to create a beautiful peaceful atmosphere. We relocated from New England in 1990 and have been living in this home until just recently.
Debbie Derusha purchased this House in 1993
Why Debbie Derusha chose Hillendale
Visiting family? In town for a wedding? in a hotel? In town for sight seeing? Great country location in a community with so many area attractions and destination points.
What makes this House unique
We are conveniently located to access many roads and avoid most of the commuter traffic. We are half way between beaches and mountains. We are 40 minutes from the top two Oregon tourist attractions: Multnomah Falls (620 feet, tallest waterfall in the state of Oregon with a walk path to the top) in the Columbia Gorge and the Woodburn outlet Mall. We are the First City west of the Mississippi with many historical venues. We have the only outdoor municipal elevator in the U.S. and one of only four in the world. Willamette Falls in downtown Oregon City is the largest water fall in the Pacific Northwest by volume, only second in the U.S. to Niagra Falls, and 17th widest in the world.

Feels like home
I cannot even begin to express my gratitude towards this lovely couple and their beautiful home. Debbie and Craig are kind, quick to respond, and VERY accommodating. They had everything just so and really had everything you’d need. There were fresh flowers on the kitchen table, and delicious coffee awaiting me when I checked in. I could go on and on about how this was my best renting experience thus far. And the house!!!! Absolutely beautiful and so welcoming. The girls had a blast there and just kept saying “can we live here?!” I would most definitely rent this property again. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.
This charming home was exactly what we needed for our family get-together. The house was clean and beautifully furnished, kitchen and baths were very nice, and we had everything we needed. It was so nice and comfortable, in fact, that on multiple occasions our Oregon City family joined us at the rental instead of us going to their nearby home.
We were able to eat family-style and play cards in the dining room and watch TV in the comfy living room. All of us--including my cousin who herself owns rental properties and my 92 year old mother--were favorably impressed.
Additional pluses were lovely fresh flowers, ice in the freezer, a sunny deck (we definitely lucked out with the weather), and beautiful surroundings. Owner Debbie was quick to answer the several questions I had about the property, and we actually met both Debbie and Craig as we were leaving. Very gracious and very thoughtful!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to friends and family visiting the area and would absolutely rent it again myself.

Loved the house! It was clean, private, and inviting - a quiet property. Communication with the owner was easy, and the response to any question was answered promptly. A quick and easy ride to the heart of Oregon City as well as freeways to Portland. Plus, the house was within walking distance to two parks. I would not hesitate to rent this house again.
This property was very well stocked which was much appreciated after our long two day drive. We enjoyed the quality of the linens and towels provided. The communication with the owners was excellent.
This was a great property in which family and friends could gather.
We highly recommend this home and hope we might stay there again someday.
Thank you Craig and Debbie!
Our Stay in Oregon City
Came from Philadelphia for a wedding and just stayed at this property. Could not have asked for better! Property is extremely well taken care of, has everything you could possibly need, in good section, and close to everything. Owners are great to deal with. I definitely recommend!!!
