About the property

Waterfront 3 bedroom, 2 bath Ground Floor 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 Ground Floor Suite. Enjoy a private living room, full kitchen and dining in the Ground Floor 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 Ground Floor Suite will comfortably accommodate 6 guests:

• Bedroom #2 with Queen Bed (2 guests). Attached Bathroom #2 with tub/shower is private to this bedroom.

• Bedroom #3 with two Log Twin Beds (2 guests).

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

Your Ground Floor Suite is the entire ground level of the Chateau. Cooking and laundry amenities include:

• Your own full Kitchen with stove/oven, refrigerator, large sink, dishwasher and microwave.

• Your own large laundry room with 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 available exclusively for your use in the Ground Floor Suite. The Exterior photographs show the common areas available for your use and guests that may have reserved the 3BR/2BA Penthouse Suite at our Chateau. You will have a private entry door electronically keyed for your exclusive use. The Chateau Supply Room is in a back corner of the ground floor so we may occasionally need to access this area during your stay however you will be the only guests on this level of the Chateau.

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

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

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

3) Penthouse Level. The 3BR/2BA Penthouse Suite (see VRBO Listing #596681).

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.

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 ground floor 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.

Ground floor suite is remarkably open, bright, and quiet, and the accessibility was very good for the mobility-limited grandmother of the graduate. The kitchen is well-supplied and it was really pleasant to relax on the sofas in the west-facing living room area. You'll see people on the deck from there, but with blinds it isn't intrusive.

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 separate 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!

We had a wonderful time here. Roger & Annie

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family to stay during our visit to Portland. It's about 15 minutes outside of Portland. We had plenty of room. Kelly and King were very helpful with suggestions for us. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and grilling after a long day of sightseeing. It's a beautiful home.

Beautiful home, serene and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Portland Riverfront Chateau property. The home was spacious and spotless. Due to the weather, we were unable to enjoy the riverfront view, but we enjoyed our stay. A perfect spot to get away from it all. The location is a bit far from some things, but overall made a perfect base location for our stay. We enjoyed the Willamette River Valley, Columbia River Gorge, and a drive to the ocean. Thank you for sharing your home.

BEAUTIFUL deck and river view from the deck!

  • 4 of 5

Lower unit is a little quirky from floor plan to basement-like street level window in the living room. However, deck is great to just on with a cup of tea & soak in the view. I wish I could give 4.5 stars. Super clean. Wish master had a king bed. But it had all the needed amenities including a full laundry room. My son loved the Netflix & husband appreciated the WiFi. Owners supplied some shampoo, laundry & dishwasher too, which was much appreciated on the second leg of our trip. Great location for going everywhere- downtown, lake Oswego, the Gorge... You have to find your way out of the immediate area for nice restaurants, once you do this your in good shape. They also have a wonderful barbecue grill, but we never took advantage. We chose lower unit for access for my mother in her 70s. View from the upper unit is probably fantastic! Owners live on site but left us alone, which I appreciate.
