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!

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

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

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!!

THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL TIME!

  • 5 out of 5
8 of us congregated here, age 25- 66, for a wedding in Portland. All agreed it totally met our expectations. Wonderful kitchen to prepare food, great rooms and furnishings and amenitites. Yet the day bed mattresses were uncomfortable. Cool enough with a/c in rooms. Our 2 dogs loved the backyard and neighborhood and local dog parks for walking and exercising. Great location for the cute town of Oregon City and the riverfront. Quiet and nice. Down side, we weren't there long enough to use all the amenities and really relax there! Thank you to our host Lisa and for the champagne as a welcome gift! Many said they would certainly return.

GREAT GATHERING PLACE FOR WEDDING/FAMILY REUNION

  • 4 out of 5
We arrived during one of the few heat waves in Oregon. It was 95 degrees on the Sunday of our arrival. The house was extremely hot. The first night was pretty miserable as there were only A/C units in the 2 upstairs bedrooms.

I called Lisa first thing the next morning and she and her maintenance team were Johnny on the spot. They had a new window unit installed in the main living area by that afternoon and had also made plans to have the central A/C installed in the next few weeks.

The house is absolutely lovely, equipped with everything you could ever need and then some. The game room was a blast and became a favorite gathering place for our crew.

The neighborhood was charming with several historic homes and buildings. Everything you could possibly need is within walking distance including the local hamburger joint "Mikes" that serves up a mean chocolate malt.

It was great to have a place big enough to accommodate our entire family (15+) for a Birthday Celebration. If you are looking for a place to order a cake in Portland, you must try "JaCiva's". They made the cakes for both the wedding we attended and the Birthday Celebration. They were the most beautiful and delicious cakes ever!

We rent a house in a different State/City at least once a year for our family to get together. This was definitely one of the most memorable. Lisa has made this place feel like home and her attention to detail is felt throughout.

Thanks for Sharing your home with us Lisa.

FAMILY WEDDIANG

  • 5 out of 5
The house was perfect for a large family. Most nights, we had 13 people.. The kids ages 9-12, loved the downstairs game room and sleeping bunks. With so many seperate rooms and sitting areas, it was easy to be by yourself or with the crowd. Most nights were spent out in the back yard. The house had everything a traveler could possibly need. Loved the neighborhood. We took many walks around, looking at flowers.
