Hi, I'm your host, Dave. I currently work as Systems Business Analyst for Portland Parks & Recreation. My family consists of one young son, Walker, and my partner, Roland, who's an engineer for the Bonneville Power Administration. We have been together since 1991 and are both originally from Southern Idaho and graduates of the University of Idaho.
We love to travel and have been all over North America, we hope to go further when our son is older. Roland has made several trips to Europe. We can appreciate that when you travel it is essential that you have a clean, private, and comfortable place to stay.
We are very low-key hosts and are very happy to advise you or leave you alone. We have Portland visitors guides and local recommendations at the ready. We look forward to your visit.
