Bedrooms 3
Property type chateau / country house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Waterfront 3 bedroom, 2 bath Penthouse Suite Wifi, Washer/Dryer, EV Charging

Stay right on the Willamette riverfront. Located 8.5 miles from the center of downtown Portland, we offer this luxurious 3BR/2BA waterfront Penthouse Suite. Enjoy a private living room, kitchenette, and Lanai (balcony) deck in the Penthouse Suite at the PDX Anchor House Chateau. Luxuries include Wifi, in-room Washer/Dryer, air conditioning, granite countertops, solid cherry floors and custom cherry cabinets.

The Penthouse Suite will comfortably accommodate 6 guests:

• Master B/R with brass King Bed, Riverfront (2 guests). Attached private full bath with tub/shower.

• Bedroom #2 with brass King Bed (2 guests). Bathroom #2 with tub/shower is across hallway.

• Bedroom #3 with two brass Full Beds (2 guests). Bathroom #2 is 8 feet down hallway.

Convenient on-site parking for one car included. Please ask for details if you need parking for more than one car.

Your Penthouse Suite is the entire Penthouse level of the Chateau. Cooking and laundry amenities include:

• Your own kitchenette with glass electric cooktop, refrigerator, large sink, dishwasher and microwave.

• Washer/dryer.

• Natural gas BBQ on the patio.

Located just 15 minutes from the heart of downtown Portland on a dead end street. Its remarkably restful here: we sleep with the windows open during the summer and the ducks and geese tend to be the loudest residents.

All the Interior photographs show the amenities conveniently available to you from your 3BR/2BA Penthouse Suite. You share the entry Foyer with us, but all other interior facilities shown are located on the exclusive penthouse level. Your entry will be electronically personally keyed for your use. The Exterior photographs show the grounds and decks of the Chateau: these are common areas available for your use and guests that may have reserved the 3BR/2BA Ground Floor Suite.

There are 3 separate levels/suites at our spacious Chateau:

1) Penthouse Level. The 3BR/2BA Penthouse Suite offered here.

2) Main Level. The Caretaker Suite where we reside.

3) Ground Level. The 3BR/2BA Ground Level Suite (see VRBO Listing #596857).

If you have a larger party, we can offer both the Ground Level and Penthouse Suites to comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests: please check the calendar of each Suite for availability.

The PDX Anchor House Chateau is located:

• On the East bank of the Willamette River, just south of the Sellwood area of Portland. The Chateau faces due west so spectacular sunsets and the late evening sun are common.

• 600 ft from downtown Lake Oswego (across the river)

• In Clackamas County, where guests are NOT subject to the additional 11.5% Home Stay occupancy taxes found at most Portland (Multnomah County) short term rentals.

Electric Vehicle Charging:

• Convenient onsite high current 240VAC available to charge your Tesla, Leaf, etc.

• Equipped with Level 2 charging full 50 amp NEMA 6-50 and NEMA 14-50 EV Compatible receptacles

Commute information:

• 8.5 miles from the heart of downtown Portland’s skyscrapers (15 minutes)

• TriMet Bus line 4 blocks from Chateau, connects to MAX Orange Light Rail within 2 miles.

• Major grocery stores a mile away: Walmart, Fred Meyer, etc.

• Dozens of restaurants and fast food 1-3 miles away

• Airport shuttle service available. Airport is 19 miles, approximately 25 minutes drive.

To Potential Guests With Limited Mobility:

The Penthouse Suite has two flights of stairs with approximately a dozen outdoor steps and fourteen indoor steps. If you have limited mobility, please check our Ground Floor Suite (VRBO Listing #596857) as an alternative which has only two steps to get into the Suite and two steps to the living room.

You’ll probably want a car to stay here if you’re on a schedule. The TriMet bus line is only 4 blocks away, which whisks you to Portland's new MAX Light Rail Orange Line within a couple miles, and so you are probably 30-45 minutes or more away from downtown Portland by bus + light rail. Car commutes are 15-25 minutes to much of Portland. Renting a car will allow you to take in the spectacular local sights: don't miss the Columbia Gorge, Multnomah Falls, Horsetail Falls, Crown Point, wine country, whitewater river rafting, air ballooning, the zipline, horseback riding, a day trip to Astoria, etc.

***************************** WEDDINGS & EVENTS ********************************

We get frequent inquiries regarding weddings: it's a beautiful, serene location here on the river.

However, due to insurance restrictions, we do NOT allow weddings, receptions, showers, ... or any events onsite.

No pets & no smoking, please. Sorry: no exceptions to our pet & smoking policy. Guests with allergies can be assured your Suite has been pet and smoke free.

About Kelly Wick

We have lived here on the main floor of this Willamette River Chateau for over 30 years. The beauty and serenity of this location are unmatched. Come share our little piece of heaven.

Kelly Wick purchased this chateau / country house in 1986

Why Kelly Wick chose Oak Grove

Living on a dead-end secluded little enclave in the heart of the city gives us the best of all worlds: close to everything, yet quiet, peaceful and surrounded by abundant wildlife.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This is true riverfront, just steps off the Willamette River. There are 3 parks directly across the river so the PDX Anchor House mornings and evenings tend to be whisper quiet with the occasional sound of Great Blue Herons, Osprey and Canadian Geese. Facing due west, the sunsets are spectacular and life-affirming: come enjoy the river life.

Wonderful for all generations

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented both portions for a graduation week - this focuses on the penthouse suite.

The location is terrific - beautiful river sunsets from the delightful deck and dock, and we enjoyed exploring the quiet neighborhood streets for the spring rhododendrons and azaleas. Convenient to downtown Portland with a bit of planning, and we also enjoyed having a big Fred Meyer supermarket, Pendleton home store, and the Milwaukie farmers market nearby.

Penthouse suite is very nice, master bedroom has a terrific river view and the overall feeling is roomy and bright thanks to the layout and skylights. It was nice to have casual meals in the LR area off the open, well-supplied kitchen. You do need to climb a couple different short flights of stairs to this (from parking bay and then from foyer), but it's all easy and well maintained.

In rougher weather you can't count on a ton of common indoor space if you rent both units, but in our case that was a bonus - it was great to have upstairs and downstairs personal space!

Kelly and King were lovely & thoughtful hosts, making sure we had all the amenities we needed and answering questions promptly.

We hope to come back for our second Lewis & Clark family graduation just down the road!

Nice, clean and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

Nice place right on the river. I was a little worried because the owners live below this rental, but they were very nice and for the most part we didn't even know they were there.

Gorgeous property right on the river with wonderful views of the sunset.

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family congregated at the Portland Riverfornt Penthouse and had an absolutely wonderful time. The penthouse was beautifully constructed offering three large bedrooms for all six of us to stay, with a perfect kitchen and dining room set up which allowed us to enjoy the evening views. All of the comforts of home were there, including extra pillows, blankets and towels, a kitchen fully stocked with everything that we needed, board games, large flat screen tv's throughout the penthouse (although we were too busy enjoying the views to watch them) and a great living room/dining room space to enjoy conversations, dinner and wine with the whole family. Their check-in, check-out procedures were also super easy and they made our stay a great family adventure. Everything from the moment we arrived to the time we had to leave was just perfect and made our trip so relaxing and enjoyable. I highly recommend the terrific penthouse for anyone looking to spend time relaxing in the splendor of the Willamette Valley!

Beautiful riverfront retreat outside of downtown

Property is gorgeous. Inside is well kept and very clean. Downtown is about a 20 minute drive. Loved having the view of the river in the mornings.
