Mossy Cobbles

A romantic cottage in a wooded setting.

Visit Mossy Cobbles in southwest Portland, Oregon, secluded in a wooded garden next to the Fanno Creek Trail. Enter past a rose-covered antique wrought iron arbor near your hosts' house, and down a lighted pathway to a timeless shingled cottage, hidden away from the intrusions of the world,  Sit outside on the ample deck and listen to the seasonal creek in the winter, or enjoy the scent of climbing roses and honeysuckle in the summer. Enjoy fresh eggs when the hens are laying.

Walk or jog through the woods to Starbuck's, Blockbuster video, Baskin-Robbins ice cream, Thriftway grocery store, or the Garden Home Recreation Center with playground equipment, gyms and library. Located just east of Beaverton, the cottage is 1.8 miles from Harman Swim Center, and 2.8 miles from Gabriel Park tennis courts and pool. Walk 3 blocks to Trimet bus #45 which will take you to downtown Portland, where you can catch the streetcar or the aerial tram.

After entering through an arch-topped solid oak door, the architect-designed one-bedroom-loft cottage opens up inside with windows throughout, all looking out into greenery. An elegant window seat large enough to sleep one person has glass and lace up to the cathedral ceiling, a cozy nook for curling up with a book. Hydronic heating in the exposed aggregate floor allows bare feet all year round. Fully furnished, the open loft has a pillow-top queen size bed. The bathroom is tiled ceiling to floor and includes a rain-type shower in the ceiling, a hand-held shower, and extra plush towels.

The furniture includes an antique farm table from Scotland and an antique carved walnut dresser from England. An LCD TV receives local HD channels and Netflix, and has a stereo/DVD player. The kitchen has counter-to-ceiling windows that face south toward the hand hewn cobblestone courtyard. The quartz composite counters and dual-fuel range (gas burners, convection oven) invite culinary dallying. Front load washer and dryer are easy on your clothes.

Computer access is broadband Ethernet indoors, or WiFi inside and outside on the deck and on the bench down under the tree.
Ironing board, board games available on request.


“This is magical” “I want to live here”. "I haven't slept so well in months."

We hope you come and spend a wee bit of your life here.
