What you will love about this home
My home is within walking distance of light-rail public transportation, grocery and other stores, and a large park. Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge waterfalls, and Oregon beaches are all accessible for day trips by car. The 2 bedroom house has a queen bed and a full bed, a fully equipped kitchen, woodstove fireplace, and a fruit/vegetable garden. There's a TV, Wii, and high-speed internet.
What you will love in the neighborhood
Portland is a quirky, green, bike-friendly city. It's known for its rain, but Portland is pleasantly warm and non-humid during the summer. It's close to beaches, Mt Hood, hiking, wind-surfing, and plenty of other outdoor activities.
