The Space

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 one of the featured Airbnb listings, one that is part of the "Smells Like Eames Spirit" collection, highlighting the mid-century modern, Charles & Ray Eames designed and inspired decor. (If your'e on Instagram, follow me at @gbritchie to see recent local shots and scenes!)

Outside, and all within walking distance, are a trendy pub and eatery, two coffee shops, a bakery, market, and perhaps best of all, this 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 (not shown in the photos). 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, and I also have two aero-beds that can accommodate another two sleepers at least.

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. There is free Wi-Fi, and with some negotiation, I could arrange the use of a computer if needed. 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 feel at ease. Come enjoy!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Gregg's condo was a great place today. Very quiet, has most everything you need. Easy to find and beautiful view. Gregg was easy to work with on arrangements and quick to get back to us when we had a question. Definitely recommend.

  • Gregg's condo was the perfect getaway! So quiet with the most beautiful surroundings. It was just as the photos suggest. It was very close to downtown, perhaps 15 minutes on the freeway. Gregg always communicated quickly, and was a great host. I would highly recommend his place!! Thanks again!

    September 2012
  • Our first trip to Oregon was greatly enhanced by our stay at Greggs beautiful condo only about 10 minutes outside of Portland. The place is decorated with such character and comfort in mind and the backdrop is stunning! The conveniences of daily life are all close by yet you feel as if you are in a private bungalow! When I think of Oregon I will always remember the great time spent at Greggs charming but stylish abode!
    Gregg is easy to chat with as if he is already a friend. He provides everything you need to make yourself at home and to navigate the area! He obviously takes pride in his place and cares about others! Greggs place is a home, and you won't feel like a number like you do at a hotel. We will surely go back if we are ever in that neck of the woods again! The beauty of Oregon is something you will never forget!

  • Gregg's condo is as beautiful as the photos suggest, and for us was the perfect place to unwind at the end of each day of exploring Portland. Spacious (we were a group of three and never felt on top of each other) and exceptionally furnished, it's only about 15 minutes from downtown on the freeways, but set in a forested area which is stunning. We loved taking an early walk on one of the trails near the condo. Gregg always communicated quickly, and was a great host. I would highly recommend his place.

    August 2012
  • Gregg's condo in West Linn, OR worked out very well for us. We had one small problem w/ a doorknob not working quite right & Gregg responded that day (within hours) to fix it. The condo is super clean and very comfortable even with 4 of us staying there. The location is outstanding - very close to I-205 for easy access to Portland, airport & other destinations, but also has plenty to do nearby - nice shopping, coffee & restaurants..

    August 2012
  • Our stay at Gregg's apartment was great. We felt at home almost immediately, and thoroughly enjoyed the overall feel of both the apartment and immediate surroundings. Everything we needed was on hand, and the apartment was clean and comfortable. A very cozy first stop for our stay in Portland.

    August 2012
  • The condo, location and overall experience was great! Very clean,tidy, lot's of "elbow room" to stretch out and enjoy. Owner was fantastic to work with and was extremely accomodating to my wife's special needs. Certainly on my "to stay again" list next time we are up in the Portland area.

    We would highly recommend these accommodations to anyone looking for a clean and affordable place to stay.

    August 2012
  • Gregg's condo was comfortabe and clean. We loved having somewhere to come "home to" at night. Good speed on the internet connection (we didn't do much email checking but we did surf the net to find great things to do in Oregon). He responded immediately when we contacted him, and his check-in/check-out process was insanely easy. Thank you, Gregg!

    July 2012
  • We had a wonderful visit at Gregg's condo. It was quiet and peaceful with beautiful views. It was clean and comfortable and we loved the cool decor. Thanks so much!

    June 2012
  • Not only Gregg's condo was sparkling clean, it is also, as you can guess from the pictures, wonderfully decorated. Even the bathroom has got wonderful colors and decoration :).

    It has a very clean and minimalistic feel to it, which makes it very pleasant to relax during a vacation, and it is very conveniently located, 20mins drive fromPortland at most, and 5 mins from I205 which makes it super convenient to explore around Portland.

    Everything was as described or better, and Gregg was a great host, we even got treated with fresh groung coffee and a bottle of wine, wich is always a pleasent attention.

    We didn't get to use the pool or fitness center because we were out most of the times, but those facilities look awesome too.

Hi there! I'm an easy-going, clean & professional home-owner who feels lucky to have such a great spot in which to live. For over ten years I've been sharing it with friends and family as they come visit, now I'm excited to share with others via Airbnb. The money earned goes right back into the condo for continual upgrades and modifications! I'm a travel enthusiast, and have enjoyed trekking around our country and world for the past many years. I love good food & drink and enjoy the opportunities that dining provides to bring people into community with each other... whether I know them or not! Some of my favorite places include the Pearl district in NW Portland, any number of the food cart pods around the area, the Stage Deli in Manhattan, the Haupstrasse in Heidelburg, Germany, and 'Nando's Pizza in the little Tuscan village of Anghiari, Italy. I grew up in the area, in the neighboring town of Lake Oswego. I was away for four years in college at Indiana University, and have since worked in the Portland metropolitan area. I know the area well, and always look forward to finding a new hike along the Gorge, a walk through one of the many eclectic Portland neighborhoods, or just sitting with a book on my balcony or sofa while looking out at Mt. Hood. A bass player as well, I'm happy to make recommendations and provide sources for guests as to where they might go scavenging for good food, exploring the outdoors, or finding a good live concert of any music style. I look forward to making more new friends through what Airbnb can help do!
