About Lisa Dodson

I have been a flight attendant for 25 years and have traveled extensively - I have stayed in every imaginable type of vacation rental. I feel that I have created a home that will exceed any travelers expectations.

Lisa Dodson purchased this house in 1996

Why Lisa Dodson chose Oregon City

I love historic homes and places and Oregon City - 'The End of the Oregon Trail' being located just minutes from downtown Portland was perfect.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank-you Thanl-you Thank-you! Everything was perfect. You have thought of EVERYTHING to make anyone feel right aat home in "your" home! I had planned on unpacking and going straight to the store to pick up "necessities" - but you had everything we needed already here. The kids were so excited about the "stocked" fridge in the game room! We used the bon fire, the hot tub, and the game room! I couldn't believe you even had a GPS for us to use. (I could have left mine at home) We even had our family come out to visit one day - we were so proud to show off your beautiful home! We especially enjoyed sitting on the front deck in the sunshine. I was so lucky to find your house to rent. Thank you so much for sharing it with our family - I am SO happy we did not end up at a hotel! It was perfect!

Our second visit...

  • 5 out of 5
We have returned to Portland and were happy to find the 1908 House available for our use. Thanks again for a wonderful place to make a "base" camp for our Norther adventures. Once again it was stocked to the hilt with all that we could possibly think of. We love your kitchen and the fact that you have included all we need to prepare our meals at the house. And what a great BBQ! We sat by the firepit in the rain! It was just too nice.

See you again in the Spring.

WOW! Can't wait to come back!

We have used this house for a number of family gatherings over the years and have never been disappointed! It is a perfect central location for our spread out family to meet for holidays/events.The owner, Lisa, is fantastic and always quick to respond to any questions we have. The house is stocked with movies and games galore for the kids(or the grown ups!) and the kitchen is always stocked so we never worry about forgetting anything. The basement can keep the kids occupied for hours with the Foosball, video games, arcade games, and the list keeps going. The main floor is perfect for entertaining the adults, with a large table and roomy kitchen. We have hosted Thanksgiving dinners and Easter breakfasts around that table in the past! Plenty of bedrooms and separate spaces for privacy. And the backyard is awesome! This time of year we LOVE the hot tub! We have also had many barbecues in nicer weather, and even a very memorable Easter egg hunt for the kiddos. No detail has gone overlooked here. Lisa has truly treated this as a place she would want her family to be comfortable in....so I'm confident that any family would be!

Lisa was easy to work with. All the kitchen-ware you need is there. The beds were comfortable. Plenty of on street parking a block away. Our family had a nice mini-reunion there. Thanks Lisa!

A rare gem of a Vacation Rental. VRBO owners....the bar is set!

  • 5 out of 5
Oh what a wonderful surprise you will be in for when you walk through the door. You will feel as if you've arrived at an old friend's house. Walking through the front door you immediately notice the front sun porch and the french doors leading to the over the garage outdoor deck with its table and chairs, wicker furniture, and outdoor BBQ. Immediately upon opening the old front door you are greeted with the warmth of an historic beauty. If you've ever wondered wanted to experience old world craftsmanship, here is your chance. Wood trim everywhere! Built in cabinets with leaded glass doors, period correct furniture and fixtures, stone fireplace, hardwood floors, and an ambience that says relax and be comfortable....and a bottle of wine atop the dining table waiting to be enjoyed. The warmth of this home is over the top and the detail that the owner (Lisa) has provided for her visitor's comfort is very very apparent as you make your way around this old beauty. The upstairs two rooms and bath are perfectly appointed as are the two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. Wait till you see what the owner has done with the basement level....kids absolutely loved it as did the adults in our group. Games of every kind to make everyone from 2 to 82 happy. One of the amazing things about this house is how intimate it feels. You can be a party of 2 and love the romance of an old house or you can be a party of 12 (or more) and thoroughly enjoy comfortably spending quality cozy time together. Lisa has seen to our every need. Fresh linens, comfortable beds, soft drinks in the game room refer, snacks and treats in all corners, condiments, a "cooks" kitchen with so many kitchen utensils and gadgets, place settings for dozens including fine china for formal dining, books to read, at least 300-400 DVDS and Videos with choices for everyone, a big screen TV in the living room (TVs in ALL rooms) complete with premium package Comcast, Hi-Speed Internet, extra blankets and pillows, hot tub with flip flops and Beach towels for the guests, and MORE! This is by far the best equipped house we've ever stayed in. Portland and the surrounding sights was our destination and this place served us perfectly as our base. We found that we spent more time NOT going anywhere because it was so nice just being here We will continue to plan our trips to the Northwest based on the availability of this wonderful property. Nice Job Lisa! You've truly captured the "Home Away from Home" dream.

Senior High School Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
The House was perfect for our retreat. Everything was as described. We had plenty of room to sleep and gather. We found the location to be ideal for all our needs. We enjoyed a walk to Mikes drive in for ice cream. The youth really enjoyed the game room.
I would say we would definitely come again. Lisa was great in all her communication with me.

Portland Bungalow

  • 4 out of 5
The Dodson house was a perfect place for our friends and family to stay for a Portland wedding---it was well-maintained and provided a beautiful location for a small pre-wedding get together. The kitchen was very well-equipped so meals were easy. The game room downstairs was a good diversion when a break was needed, but the ceiling was a challenge for anyone over 6 feet! The little ones kept occupied with all of the toys and videos available, and although the crib in the nursery is small, there was also a portable crib provided.
The weather was very unexpected (6+ inches of snow and cold) and we really felt the chill the first night. There was plenty of cozy blankets and the fireplace kept us all comfortable.
In the past, our family stayed at a hotel for weddings, etc which meant crowding in someone's room to visit and trying to find a restaurant that could seat a large group. The stay at the Dodson house has convinced us to go through VRBO from now on!!
