Photos and Description of this Garden Home holiday bungalow

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 complimentary Peet's 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 deer.

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

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.

Perfect for our family visit

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with several of our young adult children and their small dog. The house was perfect for spending some quality time together, cooking some of our meals (great grocery store just down the street) and a large fenced back yard for the dog. It was also convenient for driving into the City. My wife especially appreciated the large laundry room.

Quiet place with character

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Portland. This property is a short drive to downtown attractions and has easy access to Route 5.

The house is clean and comfortable with all the necessities to make your stay stress free.

The neighborhood is quiet.

We were able to venture to Mount Hood (east) and Astoria (West) for day trips.

There is a Brew Pub in walking distance that has great pizza and two grocery stores within a mile or so.

Multnomah Village is a mile or so away, which has several shops and restaurants and a killer bakery named Grand Central.

We will stay here again if we visit the area again in the future.

The property was so quentistial Portland

  • 5 of 5

Carrie was very responsive with email. "The little red farmhouse" was just that. Not new and modern. Portland funk, cool and very clean. It was perfect for us. Great location. Grocery store 3 min drive. You could walk ti neighborhood pub. Yard was huge for our dog. We loved our stay. Enjoy

Great get-away near downtown

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Little Red Farmhouse. We weren't there very much, as there is so much to see and do in Portland, but it was wonderful to come back to after a busy day. The backyard is a great size, with beautiful flowers. Carrie had a vase of fresh cut flowers waiting for our arrival. One of the beds was very squeaky, and the pillows could have used more fluff, but overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt we picked a perfect place. The grocery was so close and a brewery was in walking distance. I would definitely recommend it to friends.

Charming house and crown jewel is the garden

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Portland and loved the house and garden of this charming old house. The house had everything for our stay and the garden is the crown jewel. Our dog loved the yard as much as we did and he was very safe in the fenced in yard. So much nicer than a hotel. The house was centrally located to my daughters graduation at Lewis and Clark college and down town. We will definitely be staying again.
