What's nearby:
Beautifully situated on 20 acres of a tree nursery, this home is perfect for gathering together. Just southeast of the Portland metro area, Boring offers a location away from the crowds, but with easy access to urban fun in the city. In winter, the fantastic skiing and snowboarding of Mt. Hood is about 30 miles away. In summer, you'll find plentiful hiking trails, golf courses, and rivers and streams for fishing. Gresham is just seven miles away for easy access to grocery stores and whatever supplies you may need. If you're feeling more into the city vibes, you can always head to Portland, and the town of Sandy is just a short drive away with many options for hiking, fishing, and playing around the Sandy River. The white slopes of Mt. Hood Meadows, Timberline, and Ski Bowl are a driving distance from this home, so you could drive up and enjoy the cool air of Mt. Hood during the day and retreat somewhere warmer at night. There are tons of options for activities near this home, as well as the beautiful views of Mt. Hood and the surrounding countryside.

Things to know:
*The owner just installed an entirely new HVAC system, including replacing all of the ductwork, in order to eliminate any concerns about the upstairs not cooling off in the summertime.
*Dear guest, please note that this home is in a working nursery. Due to this, workers come and go, plus the nursery manager lives on the property. They will not interfere with your stay as the home is set off to the side of the property.

The house was great,it was perfect for having several different groups of family meet together that have not seen in sometime. I am in a wheelchair so could get a around main floor, and use bathroom with a little help. Thanks.
Kim B. Jan 2022
Nice house for a big group, except for the warning from the owners regarding noise levels. Apparently, have decibel monitors in the house. FYI there are no TV's in the house. Should have a little more signage on the street, it's very difficult to locate in the dark
Manager response:
Kim, we are happy to hear that you found our home well suited for your partys' needs. We are sorry to hear of any aspects of the home that were not to your partys' liking. Please note the listing description, virtual tour, and photos are up-to-date and accurately describe the home as we never wish for our guests to be surprised upon arrival. We hope to host you for a truly carefree and enjoyable getaway in the future.

My husband and his family and all our kids (12 people in all) all stayed in this large home. It was beautiful and spacious. Decorated well, somewhat stocked well, and plenty of space. No TV, but we were fine with that.

Why I am only giving 3 stars is because most furniture is broken or breaking. Broken kitchen cabents, broken shelf in the fridge (as well as no light and no water hook up in fridge), the table leg was broken, most dining chairs were broken, the furniture would recline then it would be a huge hassle and take about 3 people to put the foot rest down and actually get it to click in. The coffee table wood was so damaged I was nervous my toddler would hurt her fingers on it. I could go on. The main thing is that this house is gorgeous and has great potential if it would just be fixed up a little and get some new furniture. I'm sad to give it only 3 stars. I would do 3.5 stars if I could, but I just can't give it 4.
Manager response:
Melanie, we appreciate your comments. We sincerely apologize for any damaged furniture as we intend for guests to use all available amenities. We will notify our local team to ensure repairs or replacements commence. It was a pleasure hosting you. Thank you!

Great airbnb!
Joyce K. Sep 2021
Had a great time at our family reunion in Sandy and Garden Gate Estate was the perfect location for us.
KOUROSH M. Jul 2021
great location, in farmland, close to nursery, okay to me, there was a nice family in there we met, nice house, cleaned properly, one point to mention is it does not have any TV, I guess people who work in nature and farming, don't use TV, if you don't mind it, it is great to be away from tech
April R. Jul 2021
Location was perfect for a weekend clinic at the Mt. Hood Center. We had enough bedrooms for everyone.
Robert G. Sep 2020
This is a beautiful and spacious home set in the middle of farm land and a nursery. Very quiet and everything we wanted and needed for our stay. We would go back to this place
Linda P. Jul 2020
This was the amazing stay I've ever been for my son birthday! Great view and the kiddos love it and my family love it! I will highly recommend it!
Jill W. May 2020
Our group loved this venue! Perfect for a larger group :) lots of privacy and beautiful!
Moua C. Mar 2020
We loved the large open concept of the family room along with the kitchen. Backyard was just off the kitchen and family room, so we could pop open the sliding door for some fresh air if needed. All the rooms are spacious and cozy. The private drive going to the house was a suprise, which ment we weren't going to bothered by just anyone. Love the home.
Dana C. Feb 2020
We loved the house, the late check out, easy access to our friends and family and surrounding towns, the beach/coast, Mt Hood..... I could go on and on, a little disappointed that we didn't have very good WiFi and there are no TVs anywhere but all in all a great time was had by all.

Secluded private and roomy. There is no television and the bedrooms only have one queen bed in them so it is big but doesn’t accommodate very many guests. We enjoyed ourselves.
Karen J. Sep 2019
Loved this property! We were in town for a wedding. It worked perfect for us, close to the venue. Quiet & beautiful!
Heidi H. Jul 2019
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.
Ellen R. Jul 2019
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!
Natasha C. Jun 2019
Better than imagined!
Rachel M. Jan 2019
Very comfortable and and beautiful grounds!
Xin W. Oct 2018
Spacious and quiet! Good for families! But internet doesn’t work.
Drew S. Sep 2018
Perfect to house and feed a wedding party.
Jonathan S. Aug 2018
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.
Andrew L. Jul 2018
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.
Jordan S. Jun 2018
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
Nick D. Jun 2018
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!
Kristy M. Jun 2018
The size
Xin W. May 2018
Quiet place, spacious, gorgeous and clean! Only thing was that the internet didn’t work!
Manager response:
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.
Marcia E. Apr 2018
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!
Linda U. Apr 2018
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.
Eric C. Feb 2018
We will be staying here again next year. It is perfect for a getaway get together.
Jen T. Jan 2018
Perfet house for group of friends/families. Very clean and cozy.
Darlene B. Nov 2017
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.
Bobbie B. Oct 2017
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.
Mary D. Oct 2017
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.
Karen T. Aug 2017
Really enjoyed the property...was a great layout for our family and a rehearsal dinner....back yard was a perfect place for family fun.
Dominic N. Jul 2017
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.
Kathy J. Jul 2017
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.
James S. Jun 2017
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!
Steve G. Jun 2017
If you love cats, you will love this house; there are two affectionate kitties that will keep you company.
Deborah W. May 2017
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.
Patricia D. May 2017
The house was so roomy that you never felt crowded. The home is beautiful. I would definitely recommend it for a large group.
Stephanie V. Apr 2017
This was a lovely, furnished beautifully. Thank you for the wifi, not having a television was actually a blessing and very relaxing!!
Jenna T. Apr 2017
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.
Mouhe X. Mar 2017
Having enough parking spot is always a plus. Especially when you have a big family, because other spots are limited with parking.
Eric C. Jan 2017
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.
Rebecca A. Nov 2016
Very Comfortable and Inviting
Rick W. Aug 2016
Beautiful and clean property. We were there for a swim meet and slept 11 comfortably. Very quiet and nice rural area.
Haley T. Aug 2016
Great location for R&R. Peaceful location, comfortable amenities. Overall great experience.
Kathryn J. Aug 2016
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.
Puja M. Aug 2016
I was very happy while I stayed on this property. Everyone in our family liked it .
Kristy S. Jul 2016
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!
Frederick J. Jun 2016
Very comfortable home and loved the view and surrounding towns
Novelen T. May 2016

Abhinand G. May 2016
Loved the place a lot!!!! It's a perfect condo for 10 members.
Christine B. Apr 2016
Large nice place beautiful gardens very peaceful.
Natalie W. Apr 2016
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!
Tom N. Jan 2016
A very nice, spacious house. Clean & comfortable and in a beautiful setting. We would definitely stay here again.
Tari J. Jan 2016
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.
Shawn L. Nov 2015
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!
Manager response:

Very Clean & well maintained family friendly home!!
Tammie C. Aug 2015
Beautiful 5 bedroom house. Super weekend.
Dennis D. Aug 2015
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.
