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!

  • Our stay at Gregg's condo was great. We wanted a peaceful Christmas staycation with a few more comforts than a hotel stay. Not only were we able to relax, watch cable, and catch glimpses of Mt Hood through the fog, but I also was able to make a small Holiday meal. Thank you Gregg for opening up your home to a couple of first time AirBnBers, you set the bar high for all of future adventures through this site! Also make sure to enjoy the humming birds, they were my favorite part!

  • What more can we say that hasn't been said about this lodging: every positive review comment below is correct. Gregg is the real deal.

  • The apartment is very nice -- great decor, beautiful setting, and interesting and useful books to read. Beds were comfy and the kitchen was well appointed. I would definitely recommend staying here!

  • Gregg's condo is a lovely place to stay. I booked the place for my boyfriend's parents who came into town from Minnesota, and they loved it. The patio comes with a lovely view from the treetops and the decor is pleasantly retro. The wine and coffee that was left on the counter was a great welcoming touch. There is an awesome state park across the street with trails that go to the river. Overall I would definitely recommend this place, it was really nice.

  • A beautiful, colorful condo with a fun midcentury modern vibe, a view of Mt. Hood and hummingbirds that feed outside the windows. My family of four was very comfortable; the condo, though a one-bedroom, was well-equipped to house us all. The owner left us treats along with his welcome message and we felt right at home. We especially appreciated the peacefulness of the location, the balcony, and all the daylight and greenery visible through all the windows. I would highly recommend these lodgings.

  • Fantastic home in a great location. Perfect.

  • A wonderful home away from home! It worked perfectly for two adults.Very tastefully decorated. Beautiful tree top views as well as Mt Hood. My friend said it the bedroom was very quiet and peaceful. A little road noise sleeping in the front on a summers night. It is still a great spot to stay! Watching the humming birds as well as the sunset and sunrises made up for a little noise. Would definitely go again.
    Gregg was an outstanding host. Even though he was in Europe he stayed in touch daily, making sure ever thing was going well for us. He also had a contact person available in town to ask questions of. Over and above as a host.

  • My husband and I stayed at the condo for a week in July. The condo was both extremely comfortable and immaculate. Even on those few hot days during the summer, the condo cooled down in the evenings and we loved snuggling under the warm covers and comfortable bed. We would gladly return.

  • Gregg's place was home away from home! We had such a good time there. The location was superb, the house was clean, the guidebook that Gregg has left was so helpful in planning out things to do. Gregg was so professional about confirming times and was so caring and kind texting us to make sure we were enjoying his house and our stay.
    If you want to chill and relax this is the perfect place for you. And nothing beats having your morning coffee at the patio while enjoying am amazing view and watching the humming birds.
    The place is so quiet and located nearby many attractions such as lake Oswego ( you must go there and enjoy amazing food and drinks) and downtown Portland (less than 20 min drive) and many hiking places!
    Gregg is such a kind, caring, professional and a friendly host and communicator and host, we would definetly stay there again.
    Thank you Gregg!!!

  • Gregg thanks for letting us use your home in West Linn. It really fit the bill for us on the weekend of our son's wedding. Clean, quietly and very nice condo with all the our need met. Thank you and we will definitely consider you condo again in the future, Ted and Denise Lambert

About
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!
