Hi and welcome to our airbnb listing.
Laurie & I have lived in Oregon City, OR for close to twenty years and were drawn here by the quiet rural setting. As a business owner and arts and food lover, it is nice to be close to a minor metropolitan area (Portland is just a 25 minute drive), but the part we like best has been raising our six children, two horses, five goats, 10 chickens (at last count), two dogs, three cats and way too many zuccinis on a small hobby farm outside of town.
We recently furnished the listed property for Laurie's parents to stay at when they visit. They love it there and we hope they will spend more and more time there. But in the meantime, we are making it available to guests whenever it is unoccupied.
Laurie & I became converts of "by owner" vacation rentals when we managed to take our entire family to Europe for 30 days last year. We spent a few days in hotels/pensions, but the rest of the time was spent in "by owner" situations similar to airbnb. Not only was it easier to accommodate our large family, but having access to full kitchens helped us save tons of money by cooking our own meals.
Thanks for looking and good luck in your search!
Steve & Laurie Couch
