Centrally located in the Portland metro area, The TreeHouse 1 BR Apt/Suite is located in West Linn, a lovely, prosperous community bordering the Willamette River and features Willamette Falls* (see below) and a quaint "Old Town" to walk and explore with many dining opportunities. Portland is just 15 minutes away and Mt. Hood skiing and the Columbia River Gorge is less than an hour, the scenic Clackamas and Willamette Rivers (with wide sandy beaches for swimming and sunbathing) are just minutes away and the Willamette Valley wine country a mere stone's throw (quite literally). This spacious, rustic tri-level stilt dwelling climbs into the surrounding forest and features a lovely view of the wooded hillside and creek below and features loads of amenities all for your exclusive use.
The Tiki Dry-Bar Kitchenette (dry-bar = no sink, but we do the dishes for you :-), is equipped with a small fridge, ice cooler, coffee maker, toaster & microwave. There is NO COOK TOP OR OVEN, but on the deck you'll find a Jenn Air Gas Grill BBQ/Oven w/ Side burner for sauteing or boiling water & Rotisserie with built in temperature gauge if you wish to bake. Also, for special events or holidays there is a Hamilton Beach 22 Quart (28 Lb Turkey) Electric Roaster Oven available to you.
One of the highlights of the space is the The Blue Room. It is the ultimate "Man" Cave. Part Home Theater Room part Polynesian Tiki Bar Lounge, regale yourself on the the leather sectional sofa / recliner and marvel at the 70" Sony XBR LCD Projection HDTV / Monitor, Marantz AV 7.1 Surround Sound Receiver, 7 reference quality THX Certified Triad LCR and in-wall surround speakers and 20" enclosed subwoofer. You will feel like you're at the local Cineplex. It also doubles as a high end audio system as well. In addition to Xfinity High Definition cable, the unit is also equipped with a Sony Playstation 3 which now is loaded with apps to include Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO Go, Hulu, Vudu HD, Spotify, YouTube, iHeart Radio, CBS News and many others. You’ll also find audio CD's and Blu-ray's for your listening and viewing pleasure. The system as a whole, whether it’s music or movies, is a dream come true for video or audiophiles.
Your bedroom opens to a spacious patio deck, with patio tables, swivel & rocking patio chairs, a couch with awning, a putting green with chipping area a Jenn Air BBQ & Rotisserie with Sideburner, and an LA Spas Oasis hot tub / jacuzzi spa. It's the perfect place to regale yourself and relax after a full day of exploring and adventuring.
A continental breakfast is provided in the fridge to include juice, coffee/tea, butter, jam, cream cheese and two or more of the following: cereal, bagels, waffles, toast & fruit.
While central heating is provided, we also offer a natural gas, log fireplace with 65,000 Btu's at your disposal (see picture of great room). There are also extra blankets, quilts or comforters in the bedroom closets as well as a space heater for use in the bedroom.
The space is homey with character and a comfortable, lived in feel. If you are expecting a pristine, perfect, Hyatt-like experience you might want to look elsewhere. Likewise, while events and having fun are welcome, partying all night is not. There are noise restrictions that begin as early as 10 pm on weeknights. So, if you want to party like there is no tomorrow, you would best be served finding a stand alone unit.
*The Willamette Falls is a natural waterfall on the Willamette River between Oregon City and West Linn, Oregon, in the United States. It is the largest waterfall in the American Pacific Northwest by volume, and the seventeenth widest in the world. Horseshoe in shape, it is 1,500 feet (460 m) wide and 40 feet (12 m) high with a flow of 30,849 cu ft/s (874 m³/s). It was also used as the backdrop of the series Twin Peaks.
Disponible para huéspedes
Descend the side staircase left of the driveway into the forest below and enter your 1st floor suite-on-stilts via your own private entrance. Inside, on the service stairwell, a locked, solid core door separates your self contained unit from the rest of the building. As with all apartment suites, tenants reside either above you, below you or next to you - sometimes all 3. In this case the caretaker resides above you, but keeps a low profile and spends most of his time in the Master Suite on the 3rd floor. He will need to pass through the unit for maintenance purposes such as checking bromine / ph levels in the spa, watering the garden etc., but will do so only while you are away if possible.
From early September to mid June, check in during the week (Mon - Fri) is anytime after 5:00 PM, but the space is often available earlier. Let me know if you would like an early check in and I'll see what I can do to accommodate you. On weekends, holidays and from mid-June to early Sept. and school recess periods (winter and spring break) check in is between 3:30 and 6:00 PM, though is often available earlier.

Otros aspectos destacables
This is the same space as The TreeHouse Too 2 BR Bed & Brekky Apt/Flat, just minus one bedroom for those who have no need of an additional bedroom and who wish to save money. Once The TreeHouse Bed & Breakfast Suite is booked The TreeHouse Too 2 BR B&B Flat is listed as unavailable. So, no, there is no chance you will be sharing the space with others :-)
A Note on Pricing: While infants, toddlers and children are welcome, they do count for billing purposes as an additional "adult" guest. The same goes for our furry friends. I consider then to be sentient beings just like you and me and are thus subject to an extra guest fee of $20/night (limit 2). So, you'll need to select the correct number of adult guests accordingly (in the drop down menu). For example a couple with an infant, toddler, a 10 year old and a Beagle would select 6 adults for the number in their party. (2 adults, 3 kids and 1 dog = 6).
Kitchen items— You will find complete set of dishes, drinking glasses, wine glasses, champagne flutes, silverware and food prep items (cutlery, cutting boards, mixing / serving bowls, spatulas, etc) plus a few growlers to fill up at the local pub. In addition, there are pots, pans, utensils, and basic supplies like cooking oil, salt and pepper and a host of dry goods and sundries. Since the dry bar has no sink, we provide daily dish cleaning service. So, no "doing dishes" on vacation (yay! :-) We also provide a refillable pitcher of filtered water.
Towels & Linens—We provide towels and linens, so no need to bring your own. If your stay is longer than 3 days we provide a fresh set of towels upon request and a laundry service of personal items on the 3rd day and every 3rd day thereafter. Additional launders are $5 each (unfolded).
Toiletries—We provide soap/body wash, shampoo/conditioner and a blow dryer.
Heat & Air Conditioning—There is central heating set at 68 degrees mornings and evenings, but there is a 65,000 Btu gas fireplace at your disposal. A/C is also central, and is set at 73 degrees 24/7.
While we do allow parties and special events, there will be additional fees ($20/person). So if you plan to host a wedding and have 20 guests attending, the special event fee will be $400.
Marijuana is now legal and available in Oregon for personal recreational use for anyone over the age of 21. We believe that you have the right to exercise your rights under Oregon law, but keep in mind said law explicitly prohibits the consumption of said product, either by ingestion or inhalation, in public or within view of the public. So, while smoking is allowed on the deck, please exercise caution and good judgment. Thank you!
Our neighbors have asked that you not park in front of their house. Please park in front of 19655 Sun Circle or across the street. Thank you!
Upon arrival, please read the House Manual (green laminated placards) and review the House Rules sections of your digital Itinerary.
Children 12 and under are NOT be left unattended without our consent and are NOT to use the hot tub without adult supervision.
Please do NOT dispose of tampons, baby wipes or anything other than toilet paper in the toilet. Doing so may result in a clogged drain and sewage backing up into the shower. And it's nasty, let me tell, you don't want to go there.
Besides common consideration, the only other thing I ask is no pool or ping pong after 10:00 on weeknights (Sun - Thu.) and 11:00 on weekends. While gatherings and special events are permitted, please abide by these hHouse Rules and not party past midnight at the latest.
Use of the hot tub is unlimited for a party of one. For couples it is limited to the hours of 5:00 AM to Midnight. For groups of 3 or more it is limited to the hours of 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM.
At times I will need to access the back yard/deck/spa for maintenance purposes. I will try do so while you are away or message you first.
Groups of 3 or more, and/or stays of 3 days or longer are subject to an additional cleaning fee of between $30 - $100. That fee can be waived by doing a self clean. Please message me for details.
We recycle and ask that you do as well. Please place all recyclable materials in the Target bags provided.
Before departure, please tidy up and leave the place as you found it except bedding / towels. Those you can leave as they are.
Smoking is allowed, but OUTSIDE ONLY where an ashtray is provided. Please empty the ashtray of its contents in the garbage prior to your departure.
Upon arrival, If you have any issue or problem with the unit, the condition thereof, or services agreed to or implied, either upon arrival or at any time during your stay, please notify me immediately via Airbnb's messaging app. Failure to do so will result in the forfeiture of any claim and the possible suspension of your Airbnb account.
