Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

No. Pets. My home is 600' up Mt. Scott. 50 miles to Timerline Lodge. 20 minutes to the airport. Less than 4 miles to New Seasons Market. 1.8 miles to the MAX line which takes you to downtown PDX. Watch the sun rise and set! Did I mention no pets?
I have a level II EV charger so if you're flying in, be sure to rent a plug in hybrid like a Chevy Volt. Then all your in-town driving will be free and pollution-free!
The hot tub has been decommissioned for the Summer.

This was a quiet, cul-de-sac, wooded 1 acre property. Very pretty setting and the house layout was fun and comfortable. Gary was a great host.

As far as places to live or visit, I like views, water, peace & quiet. Or, quaint and busy urban settings with lots of natural areas/parks. And good coffee regardless!
