The space
Our Owl Forest Studio is a space dedicated to couples. Guests are charmed by the enclosed personal garden area, mature landscaping and old growth 100 ft+ tall Doug Firs, complete with hammock and garden swing. The hot tub is located between the camellia and andromeda trees just off the deck and offers views of the garden. The hot tub is completely private to our guests.

This is a romantic hideaway for lovers, honeymooners, travelers and visitors passing through to one of our beach homes ...or for folks visiting the Portland area for any reason.

You have your own entrance, separate off-street parking on the circular drive and is completely private from the rest of the property. For security reasons, we have a surveillance camera on the driveway. This is the only camera inside or outside on our property. Your privacy and safety are very important to us.

With one fourth of an acre dedicated to the Owl Forest studio, you will find that you have lots of visual privacy in a large area to call your own. We offer rural surroundings in an urban setting on a fairly busy street. You will be visually private, but expect some traffic noise, especially during rush hours.

A Light Footprint

In creating our studio, one of our goals was to recycle and re-purpose as much as possible. We had fun doing it and thought we’d share this list with our guests:

*The masonry for the patio came from a Portland school when they updated.
*The rocks that surround the patio were buried in the gardens here from the ‘50s.
*The decking was removed from Rob’s brother’s house (with permission:) and reinstalled.
*The deck framing and masonry supports came from a Craigslist ad - the owners were re-designing their back yard.
*The ceiling in the apartment is original. We removed the sheetrock, painted the beams, and left the fir attic decking alone. If you look carefully at the ceiling you’ll see the blue grading marks on the lumber from 1945 or so: 3,3,3,2,3 etc
*The wood frames inside the wall niches came from old cedar barn wood.
*In early 2015, we installed a photovoltaic solar panel system on the roof. You can’t see it from the driveway or the guest side of the house, but it produces enough electricity to power almost all the needs of the house, including the hot tub.

We try to not use any herbicides, and recycle just about everything that the recycling people will take.


NOTE: The driveway is monitored for security purposes. You will not find any surveillance cameras anywhere else on the property. Your privacy is valued and of high importance to us.

Other things to note

Location

Oak Creek, Portland, Oregon

We are located in an area that is at the juncture of 3 counties and just a couple of blocks from the freeway entrance. There is not a lot of noise from the freeway, but this is a fairly busy neighborhood street. Neighborhood amenities include restaurants, shopping and parks. For those of our guests who are headed to the beach to stay in one of our beach houses, we are right on the way. It's perfect for those who want a night or two in Portland before going on to vacation or to honeymoon elsewhere. For folks ending their trips, we are approximately 30 minutes from the airport. The Owl Forest Studio is one last romantic place to stay before leaving the beautiful Pacific Northwest, homeward bound.

We, Debi & Rob, are a husband and wife team. In 2009 we started renting our family beach home to vacationers, and in 2014 we entered the home-sharing economy by offering a private space for 2 at our home in Portland. We are very active with our local host trade association, Host2Host and our podcast called Hosting Your Home. We love what we do, we love sharing our homes, and the best part is getting to meet people and interact with our guests in a fun and positive way. We embrace the Sharing Economy completely, as it enhances our own travels to see our children, grandchildren and the world. We would love to meet you too! Come stay with us!!!
