About the property

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Feel like you're getting away to the country in this early 1900's-era farmhouse, just 10 minutes to downtown Portland, and 30 minutes to world-class Willamette Valley wineries.

Here, you'll enjoy solitude and room to breathe before heading out to explore the city. You'll be centrally located to make easy day trips to wine country. Sip your coffee on the porch swing overlooking the native Northwest front garden. Or stroll around the 3/4-acre, fenced, back yard teeming with birds, frogs, butterflies and sometimes bunnies and deer.

Inside, you'll feel the warmth and charm maintained in this home, complete with a bay window and oversize original windows, arched doorways and fir floors.

Retreat to the master suite, located away from the main living spaces. Here, floor-to-ceiling windows offer a private view to the back garden. The two other bedrooms, each with full-size beds, share a jack and jill bath.

From here, it's a short two-block walk to the grocery store, Starbucks, and neighborhood pub specializing in handcrafted microbrews. Check out the eclectic mix of independently-owned shops and restaurants in Multnomah Village, less than a mile away.

Freeway access is a breeze from this central location: I-5, Hwy 217 and Hwy 26. Close to the Oregon Zoo, OMSI, Lewis and Clark College, OHSU . . . and all that is funky Portland.

The house is on a bus line and bike lane. Downtown Portland is only a 20-minute bike ride away.

What makes this bungalow unique

Farm House in Portland

  • 4 of 5

First off, this is an absolutely darling little house, in a great location, with an amazing backyard (oh, and also amazing owners). We enjoyed our stay there, and it was a great for our family of 5 and our little dog, too. With that being said, we did have a few issues that I think future VRBO renters might want to know about. First off, the house is very old, which means the heating system is not as effective as today's newer homes. It takes forever to heat the house, and when the heat turns on and off, there is a very loud clunking noise from the basement (this happened many times during the night, causing everyone to wake up). We dealt with a lot of ants in the kitchen. The owner responded and said that she would take care of it as soon as we left, so I assume they are gone now. Finally, the shower in the master bedroom makes a very loud squealing noise when the hot water is on (again, I assume this is due to the age of the home. Not that big of a deal, unless someone was taking a shower, while the others were sleeping). Just to reiterate, we had a wonderful time on our vacation, and the backyard is phenomenal. :)

Owner's Response: We're grateful when our guests let us know when anything at the house isn't working properly so we can immediately fix or replace it. The squealing shower head has been replaced with a new one, and sugar ants have been taken care of and are gone. We've called in a specialist to diagnose and repair or replace the furnace. Thank you!

City retreat

  • 5 of 5

A very relaxing retreat from the city with easy access to all Portland and the surrounding area has to offer. The home is on a huge lot with great privacy – perfect for family gatherings that include children and pets.

The newly remodeled kitchen was a dream to cook in with enough space for multiple chefs. Carrie has the kitchen and house stocked well. We enjoyed browsing through the bookshelves – something for everyone with lots for those who have caught the travel bug.

The house was very clean and the fresh flowers were a welcoming touch.

Groceries, liquor, restaurants and a brewery within walking distance.

I hope to stay here again.

Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this well equipped and comfortable and tastefully decorated home for a Thanksgiving family reunion. There were 6 of us and the house provided us with a newly remodeled kitchen so we enjoyed cooking up great meals. The kitchen was well stocked with nice dishes, glass wear and cook wear. The home was cozy but was plenty spacious for all of us. It was in a quiet neighborhood but well situated for walks or quick trips to nearby stores. Carrie was available for questions but we had few as the instructions were thorough and easy to follow. I would highly recommend this VRBO and hope to stay there again if we are in the Portland area.

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for five days and none of us wanted to leave. The house was so comfortable, exceptionally well stocked and the yard was beautiful... large and private and full of the colors of fall. In addition, an excellent grocery store and Starbucks were in walking distance. We loved sitting on the front porch swing and the back yard patio. On a more practical note, it was an easy starting point to navigate the Portland area and handy to downtown too. I had a question when I showed up and Carrie responded in just a few minutes. I hope that if I return to the Portland area, Carrie's little red farm house will be available.

Very beautiful property in a quite neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house was how we expected it to be, clean rooms, sheets, towels, blankets, clean kitchen and bathroom. Kitchen was fully stocked with basic required things, nice backyard and patio.

The owner, Carrie, was responsive to any questions, very friendly conversation over phone, clear communication and hassle-free.

Overall, it was a satisfactory stay and I would not mind coming back here to stay on my next trip.
