Welcome to Pondview! Our vacation home design is perfect for family & friend gatherings. Enjoy the peacefulness of the country just a short drive from town. View the 7 acre pond, trees and fields from the large front windows of the great room. Swim in the pond or play on the boats in the summer. BBQ on the deck. Nearby you'll find wineries to tour, shopping, theater, movies, hiking, biking, fishing and plenty of other fun activities. The beach and Columbia River Gorge are a short drive away.

The space
We are third and fourth generation farmers living on the farm purchased in 1946 by Ric's grandfather. For many years the farm was a dairy, but the cows were sold 14 years ago. The farm now raises hazelnuts, walnuts, clover and grass seed. The 7 acre pond was originally created in the 40's with the water used for irrigation of crops. Now it's been stocked with trout and is used for play!

Pondview was originally built in 1974-75 by Ric's parents. They enjoyed the house and location next to the pond for 40+ years. When they needed to move to town due to age, we purchased it from them. We have extensively updated, remodeled and furnished the home to share with travelers and vacationers to our area. We feel the beauty, serenity and location of the home will be loved by our guests as much as by us! With the added bonus of such a variety of activities in the local area, we know our guests will want to return again and again, and recommend it to their friends.

Pondview is a beautifully furnished and updated three level home nestled into a natural, private setting in the middle of our 300 acre family farm. This family-friendly home is easily accessible from Portland, Oregon, and can accommodate up to 11 overnight guests. The two story great room with wall to wall windows and open living design make a perfect venue for entertaining. Decks on the front and both sides of the great room expand the conversation areas.

In the great room, guests will find plenty of seating for gathering and conversation, plus a large flat screen television, propane fireplace and stunning views of our tranquil pond, Mt. Hood, beautiful gardens, orchards, rolling fields and forest through the large windows.

The dining table with comfortable seating for eight and a child’s highchair make meals pleasant. The spacious fully equipped kitchen makes preparing meals a joy. Guests will find coffeemakers, coffee, tea, dishes, utensils, dishwasher, microwave, oven, refrigerator, stove, toaster, and pantry items. Other amenities include Wi-Fi, air conditioning, heating, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, and washer and dryer. We have games to play, cards, puzzles and books to share while you are visiting.

The north deck off the living room has a propane grill and table with four chairs, perfect for enjoying outdoor meals and refreshments. The south deck has two comfy chairs for relaxing and a propane deck heater in case its chilly. Further expanding your outdoor living is the gazebo with table and six chairs overlooking the gardens, goldfish pond and tranquil pond. The covered pier over the water of the pond has benches for easy relaxation and another deck heater. A dock for the boats and lush grass and landscape complete the peace and serenity you will enjoy at Pondview. We provide beach chairs and beach towels for those that want to swim!

There are three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one-half bathroom. The master suite has a king-size bed, large walk-in closet with baby crib and ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower. The second and third bedrooms in the daylight basement have queen-size beds with a full bathroom between them. The loft has a game table, a futon which opens to a full size bed, as well as three twin rollaway beds with memory foam mattress. Plenty of high quality linens and towels are provided.

The upper lawn area is large enough to accommodate plenty of activities, including up to a 40' x 60' tent for large gatherings. A play structure and plenty of outside room to explore will keep the kiddos happy!

Oregon is a world-class wine destination and recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first planting of its pinot noir grapes. Pondview is perfectly situated for wine tours. Several wineries are within 2 miles! Multi-million dollar tasting rooms with jaw-dropping views and world class wines are only minutes away. We are happy to share our favorite wineries or help with any suggestions for your trip. We even have a few wine tasting coupons available!
