This host is the very best ever! Sara is very welcoming and warm. She gave us eggs from her hens when we arrived. Who does that? We were repairing our home after a flood and she was and still is ever so accommodating. The view is so lovely of the river. My husband and I are grateful we came away making a friend. I recommend this property to anyone. It simply doesn’t get better than this. Thank you Sara from the bottom of our hearts. We appreciate you more than you know. ❤️💕�❤️
Amazing Relaxing River Retreat
This place was amazing. When can you sip on wine in your own private hot tub next to a river with ducks quacking and having an beautiful weeping willow in the back drop!? This place I decorated with perfection inside and out! The little extras that were left for us made our stay even more special! We highly recommend this place!
At home by the river...
Have stayed at Sara’s before - always a warm feeling. This time was no exception. We had a perfect retreat while visiting family & friends in Portland
Thank you John! It was so great to have you and Karelle back! Rex is welcome any time too, such a well behaved dog! Thanks again! :)

Thank you for this lovely review Jante, I'm so happy you and your hubby enjoyed your stay!
Everything you could want. Full kitchen, fireplace, river view, proximity to Kellogg creek park, near Milwaukie & Sellwood! My golden retriever Penny loved it here ❤️
Thank you John for writing this nice review, and Thank you for the awesome music CD that you sent me too! So thoughtful, and I happen to LOVE the music! I look forward to having both you and Penny back soon!
Beautiful place on the river, convenient access to the area
We really enjoyed our stay there. The grounds are beautiful, just like the pictures. The commuter train to Portland was walking distance...along with a couple of coffee shops, bars, restaurants etc. And for comic fans, the headquarters of Dark Horse is a couple of blocks away. It was like staying in the country and visiting the city all at the same time.
Thank you William for taking the time to write this nice review, I appreciate it very much. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay so much, and look forward to your return!
