Come stay at this open, contemporary, retreat-like condo (penthouse level) that showcases an awesome view of the east valley to Mt. Hood and north to St. Helens. It is nestled among the trees all around, for nearly complete, intimate privacy. Inside, you'll be in mid-century modern designed condo, highlighting the Charles & Ray Eames designed and inspired decor.
Outside, and all within walking distance, are a trendy pub and eatery, two coffee shops (yes, Starbucks), a bakery, market, and perhaps best of all, your condo is right across from an amazingly spacious park that is complete with nature trails, fields, and gorgeous river access. In another ten miles, you're in downtown Portland, and can be having a stroll on Waterfront Park, browsing the aisles at Powell's Books, exploring the trendy Pearl district, or sipping coffee at any of the five Stumptown Coffee locations. A simple, non-transfer bus-line (#35) gets you there as well if you don't have a car - with a stop right from the base of the condo.
You're only 1.5 miles from the freeway (I-205), a direct fifteen miles from the airport. You can take the freeway north to the Columbia River, where in under 30 minutes you can either go into Washington State or head east on the Oregon side on Hwy. 84 along the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. Explore hundreds of waterfalls, hikes, or other famous landmarks like Multnomah Falls and Beacon Rock. Upon booking a stay, guests will receive an online "guidebook" to specific places around West Linn and Portland that I am particularly fond of, complete with my own special recommendations!
When in the condo, you'll have a comfortable queen bed in the simple, elegant bedroom, that features brand new hardwood floors. There is drawer-space as well as now ample hanging-space (thanks to customer feedback!) available to unpack and feel more at home rather than living out of a suitcase. In the living room is a sofa that makes a great additional sleeping spot (not a pull-out), and I also have an aero-bed that can accommodate another one or two sleepers as well.
Overall, all rooms (including the bathroom, kitchen, den, and hallway) are clutter-free; the entire condo has a very clean, minimalist feel to it - easy for any guest to feel and make themselves at home, and less like they are entering into someone else's living space.
Parking for two vehicles is available on site for no additional cost. Please be aware that there are 23 steps leading up to the condo.
For entertainment, you're welcome to use the 48" HD cable television, as well as the clubhouse workout facility, pool, and jacuzzi hot tub (if arranged in advance). There is WiFi. You will also have access to Apple TV, a wireless streaming movie and TV show service, so if you have an iTunes and/or Netflix account, you can log in and be able to stream shows and movies as you wish. If you wish to use this service, please talk with me about it before your stay.
Out the sliding glass doors is a covered balcony that looks out to Mt. Hood and the eastern part of Oregon. It's a great little spot where you can sit with a glass of wine in the evening, a cup of coffee in the morning, or even fire up the Traeger barbeque in any season. Even if it's chilly or rainy, curl up with a blanket and sip your day away while you watch the hummingbirds flitter nearby.
The clean, white-tiled kitchen is ready for full-use with plenty of refrigerator space available. Guests will be treated to a bottle of wine, some fresh coffee to brew, and a few goodies to welcome you in.
I believe you'll find me a great host - working with you before, during, and after, to make sure your stay is all you could want. I have had opportunities to travel my entire life so I can appreciate a living space that is comfortable, clean, and allows anyone to easily enjoy!+ More
