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 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.

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing getaway. The house provided a warm and homey place for family and friends to celebrate my son's graduation and Mother's Day. There was plenty of room for the large group to convene and for smaller groups to have more private interactions. Beds were comfortable for all, and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and more! The game room, hot tub, and fire pit were delightful additions to an already wonderful home. This home away from home helped make these two celebrations even more special.

Super location, well stocked home for large group

  • 5 of 5

The location was wonderful in Oregon City. The house was incredible for our party of 12 who stayed for 4 nights to canoe with the Portland paddlers. The beds were comfortable and there was privacy with 5 rooms. The hot tub was a bonus and the outside deck a treat for having coffee. It was a pleasure to email with Lisa who is so friendly and accomodating. We will definitely be back to the 1908 House. It was an Easter to always remember.

Perfect location for large group

  • 5 of 5

The 1908 House ended up being the perfect location for a university student trip this last October. We had service projects lined up in Portland and it was an easy commute back and forth every morning. My students loved all the entertainment options available to them - from the hot tub, to the fire pit, to the VHS videos, and the entertainment center downstairs. We comfortably fit 12 people between all the bedrooms. The kitchen was perfect for prep and I'm so appreciative that it was stocked with everything we needed for food prep and it even had some spices and condiments! Lisa was so gracious during our whole setup and made sure everything met our needs - she even provided us with a smores kit when we mentioned that was one of our team activities. Definitely will be referring student groups back here again!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This house was great, many bedrooms, lots of places for people to gather and talk. The downstairs is great for kids. Lisa was also very accommodating - our gathering was short notice and we had some special needs and she was willing to work with us.
