Other things to note
Easy access to Interstate 5. Located 8 miles from Portland Airport. Also close to Vancouver, WA (3 miles). The Columbia River Gorge with its scenic highway is a must see for some visitors. It is an easy 45 minute drive to view spectacular waterfalls, hiking trails and scenic vistas.( The Gorge is currently closed due to recent fire). The Rose Garden is nearby as well as the world famous Japanese Gardens and Chinese Garden in Chinatown. Mt Hood is one hour away and worth the trip to see Timberline Lodge, chair lifts, hiking and snow sports if you like.
Available WiFi, NO smoking or drug use on the premises.
Social alcohol intake is fine.
Quiet time after 10 PM.
My life is quiet as a semi-retired professional living in a lovely neighborhood in North Portland. My passion is teaching and facilitating lively discussions. Taking walks/hikes into the northwest hiking trails is a favorite. Gardening is my hobby as you will see if you stay. My specialty is good wholesome fresh food which Portland is noted for. I have one adult cat named Bella who is friendly and a love to cat lovers.
I like meeting interesting intelligent people and love to share travel stories.
My life motto is "Create the life you truly want now".
