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.

Beautiful property, down to all the small details and accents.

  • 5 of 5

The 1908 House was well stocked with all of the things we needed to host our daughter's college graduation weekend. It definitely was a more than comfortable home away from home with so much and warmth. We used both BBQ puts, the jacuzzi, kitchen supplies, towels and the extra blankets. The kids loved the basement game room and the walk in shower with the seat was perfect for my mom who has ADA needs. The grounds are beautifully kept with gorgeous plants and flowers where we took graduation pictures. We used every nook and cranny! There was an issue with an unexpected knock on the door, and Lisa the owner responded immediately when I contacted her (even though she was out of the country). I don't know if we'll return from out of state, but the memories we made here will be with us forever!

Like staying with family

  • 5 of 5

There was more than enough room for our family of 8. The teenagers especially loved the gameroom. The moms appreciated that the house had everything we could possibly need and amazing instructions for where to find/how to use everything.

This is the perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

The 1908 house has lots of room, and was clean and welcoming. The interior was charming and fully functional. I can't imagine anything lacking here: tons of bedding, kids' toys, a kitchen with everything you could possibly need. It was easy to get to and had lot of parking. We highly recommend this wonderful house.

Wonderful family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered in Oregon City at the "1908 HOUSE" and had a wonderful time. Ages ranged from 3 years old to 72 years old.....there were activities for all. The weather was not what we expected....snow and ice...but time flew by with laughing and shouts of joy. Thank you Lisa for providing a wonderful, comfortable home that had many amenities and a well stocked kitchen...as well as treats for all! If we ever have another reunion in this area we would love to return.
