About this listing
House is walking distance to The Columbia and Washougal River. It's 15 minutes from the PDX airport. Built in 1910, 4 bedroom, 2 baths. There's an adult tree house and tiny house on the property guests may use upon request.
Charming, on a large lot with a patio, fire pit, big kitchen, porch, and optional adult tree house, and tiny house upon request.
Washougal is a great spot. We are walking distance to the Washougal and Columbia Rivers. You can walk to grocery stores, convenient stores, restaurants, brew pubs and bars. Washougal is much smaller and low key than Portland. We have more elbow room out here you might say, but we are also an easy 30 minute drive into downtown Portland and 15 minutes to the PDX Airport.
You can take the max train from the airport to the Parkrose transit center, and then to the Vancouver Transit center off of 164th. From there you can take another bus into Washougal. The bus drops off on E street, which is an easy 1 minute walk to the house. Plan for at least an hour to get from the airport using mass transit and the bus runs until about 730 pm. Using Uber or a taxi is a 15 minute drive to the house from the airport.
Guests will have private access to the entire 4 bedroom home, yard, fire pit, and property. Optionally, guests may request the use of the tree and tiny house.
Interaction with Guests
The house has 3 queen sized beds upstairs, and 1 king bedroom downstairs. There are two full private bathrooms, large stocked kitchen, dining nook, tv area, pellet stove, tree swing, optional treehouse, optional tiny house, porch swing, private washer and dryer and plenty of places for lounging inside and out. The house is turn key and private. I spend a lot of time in the outdoors and traveling, so I come and go. I love this area, and have lived in and around Portland for 23 years. I am happy to suggest fun adventures and great spots for food and drink.

The house was great! Clean and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals. It was a hot weekend and there were fans in every room, which was very nice. The location was great, within walking distance to restaurants/coffee shops. Great place for 8 people to stay.
We booked this home while passing through to Portland and down to CA. The place has so much character- the yard, lovely house and tiny house. . We made dinner and a bonfire. My sister claimed the bed on the first floor was the most comfortable one she had slept in on our week long trip.
The upstairs bedrooms all have futon mattresses which were comfortable if you like a firm mattress. 2nd floor is a tight bathroom if you are tall.
Kenny was a great host and recommended we go to Washougal River at mile marker 3 for swimming and jumping off rocks- which was great for our kids. I would recommend this home if you like eclectic and homey. Not fancy but comfortable. (We did not have access to the treehouse )
Kenny was very responsive and communicative with us for our stay. We rented all three of the spaces that he has on the property for a weekend volunteer retreat. The space was very well suited to our needs and allowed us to utilize the outdoor space. Kenny lives on site and checked in with us a couple times during our stay to make sure that we had everything we needed. Across the street the neighbor has a sign offering "Free Pitbull Kisses" which was a total delight.
We had a great stay! House was clean, comfortable, and spacious. Kenny was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. Would definitely stay again!
Kenny was a great and friendly host with good recommendations for restaurants and things to do. It was a terrific place to stay the night, clean, and comfortable.
The house was great! Lots of space and well stocked. Kenny was a great host answering any questions promptly. I would definitely recommend this house!
Kenny was wonderful at both being present for our arrival and our questions, and giving us privacy and space. The house is set in a quiet neighborhood, was so very comfortable, and made for a great family gathering setting. Plenty of room for 8 adults and a toddler! And having the ability to have a small fire outdoors in the open pit was a nice way to reconnect. Close enough to PDX for a quick visit, and far enough away to just relax. Only wish we had been able to stay longer to enjoy the town and Washougal River.

About the Host, Kenny
I have lived in this area since 1992. I grew up in Colorado. Moved out to the Pacific Northwest to be near the Columbia River Gorge. For fun I spend a lot of time adventuring in the outdoors and building things.
