Quaint guest cottage overlooking a pond and fruit orchard on a private lane in a scenic suburb. 20 mins from Portland. Quiet and serene, yet close to dining, shopping and walking paths. Studio can sleep up to 3, but best for one or two. Bathroom and economy kitchen.
A cozy cottage, nestled at the rear of our 2-Acre property. Our family home sits approximately 150 feet away. The "big red barn" has been remodeled, with one half as the guest house (Airb&b) and the other as an editing studio / office. There is a locking door between the two spaces so you will have complete privacy.
The cottage is one room, approximately 600 square feet. There is one queen bed and a double sofa bed. A small bathroom with a shower and a small kitchenette (frig, hot plate & microwave, no oven). A fairly good-sized TV, closets & drawers. Our family of three lived here for several months while our home was being remodeled. We found it very comfy!
There is a small fence that will provide privacy. Please enjoy the patio, bistro table and adirondack chairs.. Shared yard, pond, fruit orchard, swings and hammock (in dry months.)
Interaction with guests
We are happy to make ourselves available to help you with whatever you may need. Our policy is to be available to you but give you all the space and privacy you'll want.
Other things to note
There is wildlife to enjoy - deer grazing, squirrels gathering nuts and rabbits nibbling at the grass. A great blue heron visits the pond each morning. In the spring we have a nesting duck couple and frogs that chirp in the evening.
No smoking and no open flames inside the cottage, please. The yard is not fenced, so it's not appropriate to bring your own pets. We have two small dogs that are friendly but stay in our house most of the time. Check in is after 3 and check out is by noon.
Married couple for 25 years. Recent empty-nesters. We have lived in New York City & Los Angeles, but love the peace and quiet of Oregon the best. When we aren't hosting we love to travel. Most recently, we were in Rome and the beautiful Amalfi Coast of Italy.
