About Laurie Davis

We are empty nesters that love the Pacific Northwest and love to travel, hike, garden, and cook. We have another home we list on VRBO. # 618425.

Laurie Davis purchased this house in 2015

Why Laurie Davis chose Hough

We purchased this property due to its location in downtown Vancouver as we wanted to be able to walk to restaurants, shops, the farmer's market, and the waterfront. We are minutes away from Portland, Or and all it offers.

What makes this house unique

This house has so much character as it was built in 1901. It starts on the cozy, inviting front porch. It has original fir wood floors, craftsman features with painted white trim, tons of windows, a gourmet kitchen, a claw foot soaking tub, and a fenced back yard for privacy.

Lovely restored home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nicely restored and furnished home only 3 blocks from downtown restaurants and shops in Vancouver. We stayed during Christmas week, so didn't get to enjoy the yard, but it looked very nice for summer use. We were 3 adults, and our adult daughter really enjoyed having the entire finished basement suite to herself, with bedroom, bath, and TV area. The master bath upstairs is especially elegant. We were visiting family, and used the kitchen, dining, and main floor TV areas for gathering. Our only small complaint had to do with the heating system-- the vents may not have been reset for winter. All the heat came out upstairs, leaving the main floor and basement cold while the master bedroom was too hot. This would not be an issue during most of the year, but we had snow and ice that week, which is unusual. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely use this rental again for visits to Vancouver.

Owner's Response: Hi Laurian, Thanks for the nice review. I wish you would have let us know about the heat when we inquired during your visit. We will look into it. Hope to host you and your family again. Best regards, Laurie

Wedding perfect

  • 4 of 5

Five of us adults flew to WA for our son's wedding. We saw all the pictures online but seeing it in person is even better. Wow. What a great place to stay! With 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (all with showers) and 3 sitting areas you can't go wrong. I only wished we had more time to truly enjoy it.

The owners supplied all our needs and more. Not only did it have all the essentials, it also had things we would not expect - laundry soap, food items, extra blow dryers and a mini straightener. The weather was warm when we arrived and the upstairs bedrooms needed either the windows open at night or a fan and that was sufficient.

Not having a bathroom on the main floor was not an issue for us. It was very clean which is something I'm extremely picky about. For us it simply felt like home~ We will definitely return if we make another trip to WA. Thanks for a great wedding weekend~
