Welcome to Wald House PDX! This modern architectural home, built in 1979 by architect James G. Tropfenbaum, is nested in the lush hills of the Tualatin Mountains. The property is located on a 5.5 mile bike-loop and is next to Marquam Nature Park, a 178.25-acre park of undeveloped forest, which features 9 hiking trails. If you're not up for a hike, go for a scenic drive on the winding roads with stunning architecture or explore one of many unique neighborhoods of Portland!

This house is very close to Downtown Portland with many shops and restaurants, yet nested away in the tranquil forest. As designers, we have obsessed every detail from selecting locally roasted coffee for your morning drip, handpicking vintage vinyl and handcrafting ceramics to maximize your Portland experience.

Wald House PDX features two bedrooms, all with queen mattresses, and 1.5 bathrooms with a full kitchen, living space and outdoor deck. This house can comfortably accommodate groups of six; perfect for small families, groups of friends or three couples.

Guest access
Wald House PDX is your very own peaceful nature retreat. Step out on the deck for some fresh air and surround yourself with the magic of the Pacific Northwest.
