The tugboat house is absolutely fantastic! What an experience! The house is very well designed, very tasteful and cozy. It's also so unique that it is an attraction in itself. We even saw a group of seals out of the bedroom window. Denise was a very nice host, she welcomed us with some treats, and one can easily tell how much love she put into the house.
My son and I will always remember my short trip to Portland and our wonderful stay on the tugboat/houseboat. It was well equipped, decorated, comfortable, neat and clean and the views were fabulous! Denise thoughtfully left snacks and coffee too. Overall a fabulous and novel experience. We loved it!
We really enjoyed our stay at the tugboat. It is clean, very cozy, and nicely decorated. We had fun exploring the different levels, including sunbathing on the top deck and dinner on the bottom deck. We loved being right on the water, watching the geese, seagulls, and sea lions swimming in the distance. The tug is perfectly situated with an excellent view of the river. We enjoyed watching the boats on the river, and the jets flying overhead from the airport. We even had a front row seat to a beautiful sunset. The large bed was very comfortable and the tile shower was roomy for a small home. Despite being 35 minutes from home, we felt like we were thousands of miles away. Amazing!
Wonderful experience, space was as described. Very clean and neat. Highly recommended. The sea lions came swimming by unexpected and only added to the adventure.
This is a great location, i heard from the owner that its open for a limited time and hope that doesnt actually happen. If you are considering this location i highly reccomend it asap
We had a fantastic time on the tugboat. The entire boat was extremely clean and Denise was very helpful from start to finish with information about how to get to the boat and directions on how to use equipment on the houseboat if we needed it.
The tugboat floating home was unique - loved it! It was rainy & chilly, so did not use the lovely outdoor areas, but so cozy inside to read, watch TV, relax. Stylishly decorated and has everything from great shower, kitchen w/ heated floors to TV system and wifi. Planes flying into PDX fun to watch and surprisingly did not seem too noisy. Appreciated that the host provided some extras like fruit, popcorn & coffee. Fun to live right on the river for a few days!
Denise was very responsive and on top of the booking. The tug boat was beautifully renovated and the perfect weekend getaway. We brought dinner to cook in the fully-equipped kitchen. We watched the sunset and sun rise on the top deck. Perfect experience!
Everything about this place was great! Denise has turned this tugboat into a stylish, modern home anyone would dream of having. The bedroom was so bright and open with a window on every wall. Laying on a very comfortable big bed, you have the best view of the Columbia River and can watch the airplanes fly overhead. We lucked out with some warm sunny weather that we made sure to try out sitting on every deck (3 levels). Our only regret is that we just stayed one night, not nearly enough time to enjoy something this great.
Denise was so good at explaining everything to us which made the process so easy. You can tell she has really put her heart into this tugboat. We are just so grateful she is willing to share it with the world!
Thank you for an unforgettable experience,
Stephanie & Jacob
We loved our experience on the tug boat. Being there was a highlight of our week in the Pacific northwest! Denise was easy to get in contact with without being invasive. Everything about the experience was perfect.
