Stay in a 110 year old home in wine country! Soak in the claw foot tub or relax in the spare room with cable TV, desk and couch. All rooms upstairs have been newly painted and carpeted. On street parking.

The space

There are two rooms and a bathroom on the second floor of the house. One room is the bedroom, one is a sitting room and the other is the bathroom. There is an AC unit in the bedroom during the spring, summer and early fall months.

Guest access

You will have access to the bedroom, bathroom and spare room on the second floor. You will also have access to the kitchen and dining room for a light breakfast that we will provide each morning of your stay. We provide cereals, gluten free granola, yogurt, coffee, juice and fresh fruit. You are also welcome to use the yard, porch and deck, theses areas are lovely in the spring, summer and early fall.

Interaction with guests

We will probably be present but we are very busy. We usually see guests around the coffee pot and breakfast bar in the mornings.

Other things to note

We can, on occasion, be dog sitters to our son and his wife's golden retrievers Cali and Hamilton, very sweet and friendly dogs.

Also, if you are submitting a reservation request for our space, please be sure to complete your AirBnB profile with a photo, bio, information about your trip to Portland, and at least 3 verifications. Thank you!

We had a wonderful weekend in Forest Grove at Mark's home. It is a lovely old farmhouse with a beautiful garden. It is very conveniently located within easy walking distance of downtown. We would definitely love to stay again next time we are in town.

This was my first air b&b experience. We were pleased with the accommodations... clean, cute, private, comfortable, affordable. Looking forward to more stays!

We loved staying at Mark's house. Great upstairs space offered privacy and enough room to spread out between a living room area, bedroom and private bathroom. We really enjoyed having a place to unwind after long hikes and site seeing nearby.

This home's loveless is only outshined by its owners kindness. The rooms were beautiful and clean, the bed was soft, and the care for our comfort was excellent. Fresh berries with breakfast, a lovely towel spread, and a beautiful garden view all made this day exemplary. Particularly if anyone is in the area for a wedding/event at the McMinnens Grand Lodge this is a perfect location to have as base camp. We greatly enjoyed our stay.

What a great out of the away spot. Having the upstairs with it's sitting room and spacious, clean bathroom made us forget we were in someone's house and Mark was so gracious when we came down for breakfast or returned in the evening. Happy we found this special place.

Clean, comfortable and very roomy. Really enjoyed having the sitting room to do work in. Garden looked lovely but didn't have time to enjoy it.

Mark's place is perfectly located if Forest Grove is your destination. The neighborhood is charming and in the spring full of blossoming dogwood. The accommodations were spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. Although the entry is thru the front door, the way they have it arranged, it is like your own private entrance. In the morning light breakfast fare was offered. Best of all was the very welcoming feeling conveyed by the hosts. Highly recommended.

Married to Carrie. I am a retired, high school principal and Carrie is a dental hygienist. Avid bike riders, kayakers, hikers and dog sitters to our son and daughter in-laws two golden retrievers. Gonzaga University and Zag hoops are a passion of ours and we travel to games when we are able. With a daughter living in Germany and friends in Europe we take every opportunity to travel to visit. Meeting new people seems to make the world smaller for us, which we like. We love hosting and staying with Airbnb whenever and wherever we travel!

We try to make the experience of staying in our homes a special one....oh, and if you have an aversion to the occasional golden retriever at breakfast..well there are other listings to be found.
