Your home away from home includes your own suite of 2 bedrooms, a beautiful kitchen & living area, & bathroom. The home is in a quiet, safe & friendly neighborhood with scenic hiking trails just out the back door. There are several shopping complexes less than 2 miles away. Amenities include high end linens, HD cable pkg, broadcast networks, Netflix & Amazon Prime. 5 min off of I-5 freeway, approx. 15 min to downtown Portland, 10 min to Lewis & Clark college.

The space

We are conveniently located just 15 minutes from downtown Portland (can be longer during rush hour) and only 5 minutes from freeway access. As we are centrally located, Mt. Hood skiing, the Columbia River gorge and the Willamette Valley wine country are all only about one hour away - just in different directions! The central location and great neighborhood is a huge draw as to why people want to live here!

The suite is a great setting for both business & leisure travelers with high speed WiFi.

Relax and enjoy a private secluded wing in the lower level of our home. (We live on the upper level.) The space includes two bedrooms, a private bath and a beautiful kitchen with granite counter tops, cherry cabinets, hardwood floors, and stainless appliances (dishwasher, gas range, and full size refrigerator and lots of counter space!)

The great room is voice controlled with digital lighting so if you want to turn on any of the lights, you just speak the command! "Turn on Kitchen lights, 50%!" The good old fashioned light switches work as well!

We request that our guests sleep on the beds provided (not on the sofa). If a third bed is desired (floor mattress or camping pad), there is an additional $25 per night fee.

The upper level of our home is air-conditioned, but the lower level (where your suite is located) is not air-conditioned. After staying with us (even on a super hot day), you will see why it is not needed!

The property is in a safe, quiet neighborhood, yet centrally located in the greater Portland area.

Guest access

There are five steps at the separate entrance that you will be using. So, the space is not handicap accessible. For guests who stay longer, you are welcome to share our washer and dryer. Private off street parking is provided.

We hope you will have the opportunity to sit out on your deck and enjoy the beauty, the peaceful surroundings and the sounds of nature! It can be refreshing to the soul.

Interaction with guests

We love to greet our guests upon arrival and be available to answer any questions. We want this to be a place you will always want to return to. However, since your space is on the lower part of the home (with a separate entrance) and we live on the upper level, if you want your privacy, we may not see you at all!

Other things to note

We have tennis courts in a beautiful location surrounded by trees close to our home. If someone is interested in playing, we can provide rackets.

For a small extra fee. guests who stay at least 7 nights can have access to the Home Owner's Association Recreational Center. The facility has a lane pool, lazy river pool, hot tub, work out facility, sauna, basketball court and fitness classes. To see pictures of the facility go to (URL HIDDEN) If you book with this expectation, please make sure you confirm with us before booking as we need to be in town in order to get you access.

Please let us know your expected arrival time prior to booking.

Marianne and Clayton's place was perfect for the three of us. Very spacious accommodation, comfortable beds and lovely linens. We loved the Great Room, including the excellent kitchen, comfy sofa, cable TV and Alexa! We were able to use the laundry facilities. Lake Oswego is a gorgeous neighbourhood - very upscale, leafy and safe. It was a short drive into downtown Portland, and close enough to the Columbia River and other places of interest and beauty. Marianne and Clayton were such great hosts. Very easy to communicate with before the trip, friendly and welcoming during our stay and concerned that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. I would have no hesitation in staying here again!

Can't say enough good things about this space! Really roomy, exceptionally clean, they even had a variety of coffees for us to choose to brew in the morning. The beds are super comfy, the kitchen is top of the line, even a dishwasher, which is so quiet we could barely tell if it was on! Plenty of space for us to stretch out while visiting Lake Oswego for our daughter's wedding. Read the rules, this is not the place to rent if you are looking to party or have big gatherings. Perfect for our family to be able to decompress during a hectic weekend. Hubby took a walk on the trails in the woods and said they were awesome. Thanks, Meg, for making a space like this!
