This is a private bedroom on the lower level of our home. You'll have access to the entire floor and backyard. We hope you'll enjoy the serene forested setting. You'll hear the stream in the winter, and the owls call all year around.
The private bedroom with a queen bed is on the lower level of our home. There is a beautiful view of a forested green space. It is a very quiet space.
Please note that it is on the lower level (third floor) of our home, accessed by a long set of steep garden stairs, so you MUST be able to do stairs!
Bathroom does not have a tub. Only a shower.

THINGS TO DO AND SEE DURING YOUR VISIT
In the Portland area we would recommend checking out OMSI, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry; Powell's City of Books - arguably the best bookstore in the U.S.; the Portland Japanese Garden - beautiful any time of year; Portland Farmer's Market (and Beaverton Farmer's Market) - huge Saturday farmer's markets with live music and fun for the whole family; the Portland Zoo - a top-notch zoo with train rides and a summer concert series; and the Portland Art Museum - look online for upcoming exhibits. Then there are also a lot of fun neighborhoods to explore (Hawthorne, Pearl District, Mississippi Ave.), great shopping and the area is home to some of the best restaurants on the West Coast.
Love the outdoors? The Pacific Northwest draws outdoor enthusiasts from around the world, and for good reason.
There are beautiful parks all up and down the Oregon Coast (just an hour and a half away) that have hiking trails both at sea level and up into the bluffs overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The famous Oregon sea stacks can be seen at Cape Kiwanda and Cannon Beach. The small coast towns of Seaside, Manzanita and Rockaway Beach are all an easy drive. There's interpretive centers, lighthouses and historic destinations to see up and down the coast. And at the Tillamook Cheese factory you can actually watch them making and packing the tons of cheese we all know and love.
The mountains are only one and a half hours to the East. There are also many wonderful hiking trails and some amazing waterfalls along the way. Timberline Lodge, on Mt. Hood, is also a must see. The views - and the lodge itself - are wonderful. The Magic Mile Chair lift (what they call the ski lift when there’s not enough snow for skiing) takes you up the side of the mountain then you can hike back down. It's beautiful!
The Cascade locks, in the Columbia Gorge, are also fun to visit and we recommend visiting the Sturgeon interpretive center with it's underwater viewing area.
St. Helens National Volcanic Monument with several new interpretive centers and caves (lava tubes, called Ape Caves) you can actually hike through is to the North.
To the South we love the Silver Falls State park - they have a really nice interpretive center and if you're willing to hike some steep trails waterfalls you can walk behind. The Oregon Garden is also nearby and has acres of beautiful gardens and trails to walk around (or they have a trolley you can ride).
The Evergreen Space and Aviation museum is an hour SW and totally worth the trip - it is incredible and houses the actual Spruce Goose. Also, if you like waterparks, the next-door Evergreen Wings & Waves Waterpark is an indoor, all-season educational waterpark that includes ten waterslides (ranging from slides for the little ones to slides for daredevils), a wave pool and a hands-on museum dedicated to teaching students about the power of water. Slide out of a real Boeing 747 aircraft sitting on the roof.
We have pamphlets for visitor activities once you arrive, but of course the internet is a great resource for finding things to do.

We are a family of four. Our sons are ages 23 and 18. We love meeting new people and learning new languages. When we aren't working we are hiking, reading, gardening or exploring new places, near and far.
