About the property

One Bedroom, One Bath And Covered Deck With Mt Hood And Willamette River Views

This large bedroom suite (18' x 24') with a private bath is located in a private home in a quiet neighborhood on a ridge overlooking the Johns Landing area of near southwest Portland. It has a smashing view of the year round snow capped Mt. Hood (10,000+ feet), the Willamette River, east Portland and surrounds through a 24' long wall of windows and adjoining 32' long covered deck. The unit was recently remodeled and is elegantly appointed. It is air conditioned and has its own controlled heating system. It has a queen sized bed and a 39" TV on cable. The unit has a microwave, a mini refrigerator, a comfortable chair, a table and two chairs in the unit and a similar set on the deck. An optional adjoining private full kitchen is available for an additional $25 a night. We collect local lodging taxes but do not charge any other cleaning or damage fees. We rent to responsible people. We trust them and are almost always pleased. The fireplace shown in photos is decorative only. It is not functional.

The unit has an off street parking space and a private entrance. It is a ten minute drive to downtown Portland and a ten minute walk to three different bus stops going to and from the city center and the suburbs. Light rail (Metro) serves the city and goes directly to the Portland International Airport terminal.

From the unit and deck one can spot bald eagles, hawks, osprey, great blue herons and Canadian geese flying by and commercial airline flight paths to the airport. One can also watch the Christmas Boats Parades on the Willamette River and the Fourth of July fireworks at Oaks Amusement Park, immediately across the river one-half a mile away.

Beautiful retreat in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Loved the great design of decor...very comfortable, well-planned arrangement, and stunning views. We enjoyed the deck morning and evenings with a wonderful view of the Willamette River and Mt. Hood. Explored the neighborhood and discovered great spots for dining: Cafe DuBerry (French) and Bamboo Garden Restaurant (Hawaiian). Close to the park along the river for very nice hiking. This is our second visit and we intend to be back! Thank you, Robb and Linda for making this such a divine get-away.
