    Welcoming, Private, Very Clean,

    Reviewed by: Kim S. on


    The property is very comfortable, clean, tastefully decorated and on a truly charming piece of property. The owners were quick to respond and resolve a problem that we had. The wifi was a bit slow and we were unable to get cell service for phone calls unless we walked out onto the main road (only a couple of minutes away). We were able to work around the wifi and cell service and the rest of the property more than made up for it. We visited Portland (we went to the Saturday Market) and Wilsonville to visit family. We also went to Cannon Beach and then checked out Astoria. I wish we had gone south of Cannon Beach to see some of the other amazing and quieter beaches. Hopefully a future traveler will do so.

    Perfect for our needs

    Reviewed by: Marty T. on


    We were looking for a nice, quiet spot to relax - but was still close to activities. This spot turned out to be perfect for us. We were 30 mi from Portland area, 45 miles from the coast, and surrounded by beautiful scenery and many wineries. The apartment was well appointed and the grounds were beautiful. The hosts were very pleasant - happy to engage and help when needed, but respectful of our need for quiet and rest as well. We hope to return some day.

    For my first time trying airbnb this was a well rounded place. I could not ask for a better host. It was amazing that there was a trail-head to close. I asked if I could borrow a mountain bike to take for a ride. They where very accommodating. The ride was spectacular. Even though this was a work trip I was taken off guard by the surroundings. diffidently out of my ordinary staying in hotel. This place is perfect. I hope to get to this place again.

    Idyllic property, well appointed in great location

    Reviewed by: Leslie W. on


    I like a place a little off the beaten path. This apartment in the woods is wonderful. Bright, sunny, comfortable, with attentive and gracious owners. The grounds were like a park within themselves. Just minutes from Stubb Stewart Park for great hiking. An easy launch point to the wineries in the region. This is a tremendous value for the experience.

    Best place to get away from the city and be inside the forest whilst you have all you need in the cottage! Corey and Jen were very friendly and welcoming for me and my family. We really enjoyed our stay. The house had everything we needed. The only 2 things that we were least happy about is not having a washing machine and a clothes dryer, so, no laundry. The other thing is the signal (using T-Mobile). There was no signal at all in our stay. Well, it wasn't that big of a problem since there is a good Internet in the house! Corey and Jen left us some fresh eggs from their farm, and it was delicious! The place has a totally private entrance. Which is convenient. The balcony was spacious and really nice. We enjoyed drinking our coffee/tea in the morning sitting outside surrounded by the big trees and the cool fresh air breeze that you can feel all the time! *This review was originally posted on VRBO for a stay in Aug-16

    A restful retreat with a forest view

    irst the owners are great and friendly, the apartment spotless, with a beautiful deck to have lunch or dinner. It is away from the road, so it is very quiet. We had a welcome bottle of wine and a special treat was fresh eggs from the local chickens.
