House Rules
Check in is anytime after 4PM
Check out by 11AM

No smoking inside and please use a container outside. Be tidy, pick up after youryou self and any messes. We're pretty laid back hosts.

We are fine with small intimate gatherings. Please consider taking it inside after 10 PM as we are in a working class family neighborhood.

No harsh chemicals or strong scents, including scented candles, strongly perfumed soaps, or strong colognes.

Be respectful, our hands created Kathy's Kottage - a true labor of love turning it from a greasy, grimy, filthy, machine shop of 50 years, to the lovely space it is today.

Pet owners!
Please pick up your own pet poo. There is no other dog that poops more than our own, and that is quite enough to pick up.

While we acknowledge and respect that fact that your pet is the perfect animal (we think our pets are too), your pet is required to be on leash at all times while on the property.

In addition, we reside in Clackamas County which has a 'No Bark' ordinance. Please know unconditionally whether your pet is content while you are away. Unfortunately we have no choice, if they bark, we will need to call you to come for them.

You must also acknowledge
Dog(s), cat(s), and other pet(s) live in the house

Brad's place is one of a kind private cottage. We loved the setting, the inside/outdoors away from the hustle & bustle yet close enough to get anywhere you want. Our experience was exceptional. Many thanks Brad.

This was my second stay in this cozy, quiet and immaculately clean cottage, and it was even better this time. Sharon and Brad welcomed me back with a special gift in the fridge and dark chocolate on my pillow! They and their sweet dog Summit are always friendly, but respectful of my privacy, as I tend to come and go at odd hours. The property is much like a charming little farm, with lots of well-tended flowers, fruits and veggies........and happy, clucking chickens! My two favorite outdoor spots are the chaise under the shady patch of apple trees, and the comfy chair under the outdoor twinkle lights. It's a quiet, magical spot for a late nightcap. Best of all, my young grandson has been a welcome visitor, as well as my scruffy little dog. We were all safe and comfy here.

My family rented both Kathy's Kottage and Davido's Den. Our hosts were very accommodating. The place allowed us to gather in Kathy's Kottage where my parents stayed while my partner and I stayed in Davido's Den. It gave us the space and amenities we wanted. It allowed my parents their space and time alone also.

Sharon Cannizzo & Brad Gunn . . . our motto, one word - 'balance'. Balance in all that we do from work to play, to living on the earth. We enjoy helping others in our own quiet way, love gardening, our chickens, and our kitty, Mara Leona aka 'Miss Marley'. Our passion has always been sustainable living, from our first house we built in 1992 to our recently remodeled 1000 sf home we own today, which includes the 660 sf outbuilding that today is known as Kathy's Kottage.
