This cozy, detached 1br/1ba cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood in charming Washougal. We are a 20 min drive from PDX, 30 min from downtown Portland and at the gateway of the Columbia River Gorge. We are happy to host well behaved dogs who will have access to our large, fenced yard. Guests will enjoy their own full kitchen, bath with shower, queen size bed, and laundry. Cable TV and wifi are provided. There is also a twin sized sofa bed in the living room. Train whistles are outlawed within city limits but you will hear the frequent rumble of rolling stock as the BNSF Fallbridge sub runs directly behind the property.
The cottage is located behind the main house on a .3 acre lot on a quiet street. Outside, guests will have access to off street parking for one car (no RVs), a fenced back yard and charcoal grill. Inside you will find cable tv, wifi, coffee maker, microwave and window unit a/c in addition to basic amenities. There is a deluxe queen bed in the bedroom and a twin hide-a-bed couch in the living room. Insulated walls and double pane windows muffle the sound of trains which pass behind the property. Most guests report that they are not bothered by the train noise or get used to it quickly.
We ask that dogs traveling with you be supervised at all times. In the event you must leave your pet when you go out we are available for dog sitting duty for a small extra charge.
We are generally here most of the time as we both work from home. As frequent travelers, we understand the desire for space and will not infringe on guests' privacy unless absolutely necessary. On the other hand, we enjoy meeting people and would be glad to have a drink or share the bbq with you as the occasion arises. And we are always happy to answer questions or address any needs that may come up during your stay.
We like the small town atmosphere coupled with the close proximity to both Portlandia's weirdness and the beautiful serenity of the river and the Gorge. You can walk to downtown Washougal and find a brewpub (Amnesia), wood oven pizza,steak,etc. place (Hearth), sushi (The Sushi Joint), deli/ice cream shop (Smiley's), and a unique breakfast experience (Our Bar). We've been pleased to try out all these places in the short time we've lived here.
You'll need a car to get around here. We're a quick drive from PDX and the Gorge. There is plenty of street parking on D street and we offer one off street spot alongside the house next to the cottage (not RV accessible).
