About the property

Cottage, 2 bedrooms , 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

A fully furnished two-bedroom, one-bath cottage. Old World charm, with knotty pine throughout, beamed ceiling, hand-scraped birch flooring, Persian rugs, antiques and original art. Two decks, upper and lower, with a propane BBQ, table and chairs for "dining out." A yard in back with regulation horseshoe pits. An exterior sauna for four! (see more below.) A disc golf course 100 feet from your front door. A city park with playground 300 feet from your door. A ten-to-twelve-minute walk to Multnomah Village, with its charming coffee shops, restaurants and pubs, antique shops, art galleries, boutiques and gift shops. And all within a ten-minute drive of downtown!

The house is filled with the things required for living: bedding, towels and washcloths, soap and shampoo, toothpaste, shaving cream, a filled

medicine cabinet, hair dryer, dish and laundry detergent, and so on. Three TVs, one with a two with DVD players and one with a VCR, a classic movie collection of over 200 films (DVD and VCR), WiFi coverage throughout.

The kitchen (see picture 3)is a working kitchen, with everything that you have in your kitchen at home: a double sink, stove refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, pots and pans, bread and butter, jam, vinegar and oil, sugar and spices, condiments, coffee and tea, on and on. It is meant to require of you only that you bring the main ingredients of the meals you plan to prepare. The table and space available will seat six.

For families with small children, we have: a cradle, two cribs. stair gates, a stroller, highchairs, and lots of toys, playthings and books for all ages. The side closets are child-scale play areas.

The main floor living area has a leather couch/hide-a-bed, table and easy chair. Also on the main floor is the large bathroom, wheelchair accessible, and the garage, which has been semi-converted into a bonus room with a convertible couch and a wall-mounted 40" television.

On the second floor are the two bedrooms. The east bedroom (see pictures 9-11) has two single beds in an alcove and a queen-size futon in the main area which, during the day, can serve as seating for TV watching. Off the east bedroom is a deck (see picture 12), facing east, which makes a great spot to sit with your coffee to watch the morning sunrise. The west bedroom (see pictures 7 & 8) has a queen-size bed and desk, and a TV with built-in DVD player/VCR.

Very comfortable and homely

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying here, it is a lovely place to stay. My mother and sister come over from England and me from Florida to visit my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter who live in Portland. The house is cozy and comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked with coffee, milk, bread, spices, oils and much more. My 2 year old granddaughter loves to visit and play in the play rooms, plenty of toys for her to play with. There are lots of books, games and movies. Trudi and Dennis are wonderful hosts. We love the location, easy walk into Multnomah Village and to Fred Myers. We will definitely be back.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Dennis and Trudy are wonderful hosts / neighbors! Property is in a quiet neighborhood setting, with 2 large grocery stores nearby. Felt right at home. Grilled out and ate on the patio. The nice thing here is the well stocked kitchen - spices, foil, coffee, etc. When you are only staying a few days, it is difficult to remember to purchase all the odds and ends. No need to do so here.

Dennis and Trudi are truly the best hosts you can have. And the house itself was perfect. Truly comfortable, all the amenities you could ask for, plus horseshoes, a sauna and frisbee golf next door. We just can't say anything negative. We were also close enough to walk to the downtown Multnomah area which had a great little pizza pub. So much fun and the hospitality couldn't have been better. Loved it!

Nice, quiet, relaxing, comfortable place in a great location. Enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 19 month-old son, and I stayed at the Guest House for 3 nights in July. We enjoyed it very much. It was exactly as pictured and described. There was plenty of space for us to enjoy inside and the decks were nice outside. Dennis and Trudi were very accommodating and friendly. Our little boy loved riding the tricycle, listening to music on the radio downstairs, and playing in the play areas upstairs. The location was nice. We spent some time at the nearby playground at Custer Park. It is close to grocery stores and some restaurants and not a far drive into the downtown Portland area. It was a very nice place to come and rest after spending the day out at the coast or exploring Portland.
