Rented this house for five days so the family could hang out together before and after a family wedding. Five bedrooms were well decorated. House was well arranged for Groups of people to visit. The grounds and landscaping were quite lovely, and we had everything we needed. The only criticisms I have are that 2 1/2 bathrooms aren’t really enough for five bedrooms . Also, the place was not in pristine condition. I was glad for that because it made me more comfortable with a house full of family members. We weren’t worried that we were going to break anything. It was very homey and pleasant and welcoming. Everyone commented on how beautiful it was and how perfect it was for our gathering.
The garden at this home is really beautiful, and a glorious view of Mt Hood as an added bonus. We loved eating our dinner out on the patio. We can understand why people get married here!
Very comfortable and and beautiful grounds!
Spacious and quiet! Good for families! But internet doesn’t work.
Perfect to house and feed a wedding party.
The house itself had plenty of room for the five guys that stayed. We were in town for a company meeting. We had a cookout on one of the nights and the downstairs and yard are perfect for a work or family gathering. Only negative is that there is only air conditioning downstairs which seems odd. It was quite warm upstairs despite the provided fans and I don't recall seeing on the listing that there was only air in part of the house. The Vacasa service and communications along the way were all top notch. Would definitely use the service again.
We had a small family reunion in this home. There were children, adults, and grandparents. The home was wonderful and very nicely furnished. It is nicely secluded and so it felt very private. The rooms all had queen beds, which were very soft. If you prefer a firmer mattress, then you may find the beds to be uncomfortable. The weather was very hot (90-100 degrees) during our stay, so the air conditioning was very necessary. Unfortunately, the air conditioning kept the downstairs very cold, while the upstairs (where 4 our of the 5 beds are) were left very hot. One of the rooms in particular was so hot that nobody slept there. We ended up sleeping in the downstairs living room because it was so hot upstairs.
The home is conveniently located about 10 minutes to Sandy, OR. Sandy is a wonderful small town with shops, restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, and a movie theater. The home is about 20 minutes from the highway to Portland and the Columbia Gorge (highway 84). So, that is not as convenient. But, we were ok with that.
Overall, nice and well furnished home. But there was one major drawback for some of my family members. The internet was really, REALLY slow. It was painfully slow to watch videos or even just surf websites from your phone or tablet. So, if this is important to you, then it might be good to consider a different place.
Had a wedding party stay here for th weekend and it could not have been any better. Fantastic house, space, and grounds. They even left extra chairs out so people could sit outside. Truly great place to stay 10/10
The space! It fit our group very well! So big, so open, great layout! I loved it! the yard was perfect! the setting was excellent! I would recommend this to anyone! Thank you!
Quiet place, spacious, gorgeous and clean! Only thing was that the internet didn’t work!
We are sorry the guests didn't have internet during their stay. The home always has internet service and it was disappointing that the guests didn't call our Customer Experience team to report the alleged outage, so we could troubleshoot. Fortunately, there have been no additional outages since then. Thank you.
We needed a place for our large family to stay close to the venue of my daughter's wedding. This beautiful home was a perfect fit. The master suite was more than spacious enough for the bridal party to get ready for the wedding. We weren't there enough to relax and enjoy the house to it's potential, so we just may go back!
We had a fantastic time at this beautiful house. We spent great family quality time as there wasn’t a tv in the house. The house was spacious and had everything we needed. We would love to return in the future.
We will be staying here again next year. It is perfect for a getaway get together.
Perfet house for group of friends/families. Very clean and cozy.
Lovely home. This is a beautiful property with a very nice house. Large living spaces open concept lots of bedrooms. It was perfect for our family Thanksgiving.
A bunch of us girls stayed at this home while attending an event in downtown Portland. It was a 45 or so minute drive to and from Portland but the drive was well worth it. The house was perfect for us. We had enough room in the living area for all of us to comfortably sit and enjoy each others company. The grounds are so lovely even though it rained most of the time so we didn't spend any time outside. The kitchen was very spacious and had a big window to look out at the well-manicured trees and lawn. All in all, it was a lovely home and we will definitely go back to this home.
Loved the house and property . Kids enjoyed playing basketball while we relaxed in the house. The house does not have a TV but we enjoyed it because we spent quality time talking and laughing together ! Can't wait to stay here again.
Really enjoyed the property...was a great layout for our family and a rehearsal dinner....back yard was a perfect place for family fun.
This spacious home was perfect for our family vacation. The home was clean and stocked with everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the view of Mt. Hood and the peaceful location away from the city.
If you need a fifth bedroom, I wouldn't recommend this property. The room that is advertised as a fifth bedroom has no windows, air-conditioning, closet, clothes rack and most importantly, -- no emergency exit. The skylights make the room quite warm and there is no was to block the light or heat. The lack of air flow and an emergency exit made this room better suited for storage than people. Otherwise, the house was clean and comfortable. The landscaping was quite pretty.
Thank you for creating a great place to stay for a larger group. The setting and open areas for all to gather and enjoy we're wonderful. The bedrooms and rest areas were very clean and efficient and great ease of use. Well designed and nicely situated. Thank you!
If you love cats, you will love this house; there are two affectionate kitties that will keep you company.
Our big family enjoyed the stay in this spacious house and property! Just wish the cats didn't keep running into the house and urinating on furniture and carpet. They were lovely cats but better enjoyed when they stayed outside.
The house was so roomy that you never felt crowded. The home is beautiful. I would definitely recommend it for a large group.
This was a lovely, furnished beautifully. Thank you for the wifi, not having a television was actually a blessing and very relaxing!!
I had my wedding here in April and it was absolutely gorgeous exactly what I dreamed of for having a garden wedding. This location is very beautiful with a gorgeous house inside and out. Very spacious and very comfortable I would recommend the garden gates estates to anyone.
Having enough parking spot is always a plus. Especially when you have a big family, because other spots are limited with parking.
Nice place and conveniently located. It was a perfect location for our group's annual Retreat. As long as it is available, we will be using it next year for sure.
Very Comfortable and Inviting
Beautiful and clean property. We were there for a swim meet and slept 11 comfortably. Very quiet and nice rural area.
Great location for R&R. Peaceful location, comfortable amenities. Overall great experience.
We were in OR for a family wedding in Troutdale and we were so happy that we could find a place that we could all stay at and be together to hang out. Being from MN and WI we do not see mountains and to be greeted with this in the morning was fantastic. Loved the house and all the beautiful decorating. Rooms were warm and welcoming. We definitely be back.
I was very happy while I stayed on this property. Everyone in our family liked it .
This home and yard were all I hoped for as a place to gather out of town family for my daughter's wedding. Beautiful, spacious, clean and well laid out. The kitchen, family room, patio and backyard flow together and create the perfect party space. Everyone loved it! I am hoping for another occasion to rent it again!
Very comfortable home and loved the view and surrounding towns
very beautiful home and property very clean beds were comfortable would stay here again close to stores price well worth it
We absolutely loved this property. House was bigger than expected. Very clean. The grounds are beautiful and the location is convenient for grocery stores and other needs. We didn't want to leave.
Loved the place a lot!!!! It's a perfect condo for 10 members.
Large nice place beautiful gardens very peaceful.
Our stay here was wonderful! There were 8 is us and there was plenty of room for everyone in the house. Everything was very clean and well kept! We were only about 30 min from Portland which was perfect for us because we there were times we just wanted to relax. The views from the house are amazing and it's very peaceful and quiet. There was no tv and the wifi was down when we were there so it gave us a great opportunity to disconnect from the world. Would love to stay here again!
A very nice, spacious house. Clean & comfortable and in a beautiful setting. We would definitely stay here again.
We needed a place for ourselves, four grown children, three of whom are married and three grandchildren for Christmas. The house is much larger than it looks like in the pictures. We brought a Christmas tree and everybody fit easily in the family room for Christmas morning. When picking rooms for sleeping all were big enough to have two play pens in them. We loved the seclusion and distance from neighbors. Great for a family get away.
the house is fantastic, but just couple little things has room to improve.
1.the wifi connection is kinda poor. the wifi will disconnect within one hour.
2.there is two room upstairs has no heat at all. the room with sky windows and the room next to the hall bath.
Everything else about this house is perfect. I give this house 4.7 stars!
Thanks for sharing your review and your feedback. We have shared your comments with our property manager so they can look into the wi-fi and heating issues. We will work to make sure the home is even more comfortable for you when you come back!
Very Clean & well maintained family friendly home!!
Beautiful 5 bedroom house. Super weekend.
Very peaceful and relaxing, the quiet and expansive property was what we needed as a get away from the hustle and bustle of Phoenix. The local country side and winding roads was beautiful. I learned that goats wag their tails when excited or happy...., and with no TV was no problem as we frequently were tired after dark.
