After your reservation is confirmed we will send you the address for your GPS and an entry code, which will normally be the last 4 digits of your phone number. If you are arriving via public transit, please let us know so that we can give you directions and possibly, if our schedules allow, pick you up. Note that your quarters are accessed from the cross-street (NE Siskiyou) and not from the front of the residence (NE 54th).
Please be alert when coming through the gate as our very friendly dogs are "runners" if given a chance. (If they should get out please don't try to catch them, just let us know and let them return on their own.). Normally, if we are expecting guests to arrive, the dogs will be securely in our house.
If you arrive after dark, we will ordinarily have left some yard lights on for you. In addition, on the wall near the door to the garage (inside the gate) is a metal light switch which controls the light over the door to your quarters. Once inside, you can turn it off with an interior switch by the door.

Sorry, no pets. No smoking on the property, inside or out. (Cannabis in back yard OK.) Quiet hours are 10 pm to 8 am, respect for hosts and neighbors expected at all hours.
We are a retired couple who married a few years ago. We have 5 grown children between us and 4 grandchildren (2 in college, 2 toddlers) so built this space primarily for their visits. We just recently decided to list it. We are, we think, friendly and sociable but do not impose on our guests.
We are active with hiking on Mt Hood, kayaking, Zumba, yoga, etc. Tim is a lifelong alpine skier trying to decide whether to follow his doctor's advice to give it up. In 2014, we spent 2 weeks hiking the Swiss Alps portion of The trans-Europe Via Alpina trail (see Wikipedia entry). We're members (subscribers) of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and travel to Ashland each spring and fall for a series of plays. We both do volunteer work, especially Pru at a social service agency and the Oregon Food Bank and Tim in the recovery community (he's a longtime "friend of Bill W."). We enjoy dining out and can recommend some superb restaurants at all price points, from food carts to James Beard finalist chefs, in this city known for superb dining. Some are even within an easy 10-minute walk of our home.
Tim keeps a beehive and Pru is known throughout the neighborhood for her street-side garden's vegetables, blueberries, raspberries and figs, as well as lots of blooming plants.
