This is ideally located near the great areas for mountain biking, hiking, motorcycling, rivers, skiing/snowboarding yet only 4 miles to MAX or a 30 minute drive to downtown. The scenic Springwater Corridor is a biker's or a walker's paradise and is only 5 minutes away. Spa also offers pilates reformer and available massage for your wellness.

Wireless Internet included, and your host can tell you about all the backdoor things to do in the area. Riders, on a nice day we might join you to tour our gorgeous roads. English, Spanish and Portuguese are spoken.
Stay here your first days when you arrive in the Northwest, be welcomed by gracious hosts and learn about the area you will love. The home is large and updated, and you share comfortable common areas with your hosts. The neighborhood is made up of homes all located on approximately one acre that has the feel of the real Oregon, for the experience of Northwest Living at its finest.
WHO SHOULDN"T GO:
If you want to be within walking distance of many shops and restaurants, see lots of newer tract homes, like having street noise, you might be disappointed here. If this is your first AirBnB experience, you'll find it different than staying at a conventional motel/hotel, as you are sharing space with your hosts and get a unique and personal perspective. Within a short drive exist some of the best eats in the NW, including Yoshida's exquisite riverfront restaurant.
Enjoy your own private bedroom, which overlooks woods in the backyard, there are no views of other homes from there. You are a house guest welcome to share the common living areas of the home including gorgeous outdoor covered wood patio.
Interaction with Guests
Many of our guests like the local perspective that you can only get staying with long time residents of the area. We sometimes have breakfasts with our guests or enjoy socializing together.
Gateway to the Gorge and Mount Hood, Our neighborhood is uniquely rural yet close in, with about 50 homes set on 1 acre or larger lots. Great things to do start 10 minutes away. It is wooded and set on a butte with a picturesque view of the 3 mountains and the columbia gorge. It is quite different than most of the AirBnB listings in Portland.
It is almost a necessity to arrive by car, unless you are an exceptionally strong biker. We are about 4 miles from the nearest MAX light rail station, but once you are there you can go almost anywhere in Portland. Parking is easy in the driveway next to the home.
No smoking in the house
Quiet time after 10pm
No dessert until you've eaten your vegetables
unwind and leave your cares behind
About the Host, Marcia
Hi, we are experienced AirBnB hosts living in Portland that love to be active and show off our unique city. We like to stay at smaller establishments and AirBnB is a great way to travel. The children are out of the house and we love to get on the motorcycle during the summer, go biking on trails and generally explore. We have traveled internationally and love to meet new people. We hope to meet you soon!
