Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Nora's Cottage. Her family was delightful and we highly recommend her.

    March 2014
  • I was looking for something with privacy and a kitchen where I could do my own cooking. The cottage was great - I slept well and everything was just like it looked in the pictures or nicer. The wifi was fast and everything worked, there was even a washer and dryer. Definitely a place I will come back to!

    March 2014
  • We recently rented the Cottage on the Creek for a vacation. The cottage was ideal for our family (2 young children and an infant). The kitchen was very serviceable and we cooked several meals at the cottage. There was plenty of space for kids to play and explore (indoors and out), and there was an added bonus of a cupboard filled with games and toys.

    There was plenty to do in Lake Oswego (I recommend George Rogers Park), and we also took day trips to Mt Hood, Hood River, and Portland.

    Overall, we had a great experience. The cottage was very clean and convenient. I highly recommend the Cottage on the Creek.

  • Despite the worst snow storm in several years in PDX, we were able to have a nice stay thanks to Nora and Kevin's hospitality. They worked extra hard to accommodate my infant son for a crib and a bed rail for my 2 year-old daughter. Also, they also let us use their boots so our feet would stay nice and dry. Thank you!

    Response from Nora:

    I hope that the lovely snow did not discourage you from considering Portland a wonderful place to live!

  • We enjoyed our stay in this cozy and quaint cottage nestled in a sweet canopy of trees. Private, quiet with all of the comforts of home and easy access to I-5, we recommend staying here. Nora and her family were gracious, accommodating and helpful with great restaurant recommendations! Eat at Gubanc's and La won't
    be sorry!!

    November 2012
  • We stayed in the cottage for 10 days in the middle of October. My wife and I were visiting Portland for the birth of our latest granddaughter.

    The location was excellent with easy access to downtown and close access to Tigard where our granddaughter now lives. The neighborhood was very quaint and the cottage setting was peaceful and secluded.

    The accommodations were just what we were looking for. We stayed in the main bedroom and were well rested for our outings visiting our granddaughter every day. We used the kitchen for breakfast most mornings and cooked a meal once to take to the hospital the second night we were there. We spent most mornings and late evenings in the living room. We had no need to use the 2nd bedroom, but it was nice as well.

    October 2012
  • We stayed here with four people; one couple and two singles, and it was the perfect size. It was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed as far as cooking and cleaning; including laundry and toiletries. The only thing I'd like to warn people about are the stairs. My mother, who uses a cane, struggled because there was no railing. This is only a negative for people who struggle with stairs, like the elderly or people in wheelchairs. Aside from that, it was beautiful and peaceful and the owners are friendly and helpful. We will most likely be staying here again in the future.

  • Nora and Kevin are the best hosts ever! They go above and beyond what you normally expect from your hosts. The cottage on the creek is beautifully locate and so quiet....We will definitely come here again!

    July 2013
  • Nora was extremely accomodating, the setting was beautiful. We had a very nice time.

    February 2013
  • I would highly recommend staying at the Cottage by the Creek. Nora and Kevin were extremely accommodating and were so helpful in making a last minute trip to Portland work for my family. The cottage was clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed our time there.
