Marv's Place

Exquisite Forested Retreat, Pet Friendly, Huge Patio w/ Fire-Table and TV, Steps From Dockside

1 BR
1 Bath
Sleeps 2


Nestled atop the slopes above the Tualatin River resides one of the more unique and special escapes the region has to offer. Please note this location sits on a piece of property where there is another two bedroom retreat (The Cedars at Rivers Edge), a long term residence, and even a small business office above. While any of the locations you stay at, your privacy is completely respected, however there may be other activity in the area including at the incredible shared areas such as the oversized hanging iron fire-pit or the meandering stairs leading to the property's Tualatin River dock. Due to the geographical setting, we do ask that there are not kids under 12 as the drop-off to the river below could be quite hazardous for kiddos.

Marv's Place is a fantastic one bedroom retreat. Every aspect has been renovated, upgraded, and furnished to create that perfect blend of comfort and style. One epic feature is the 275 square foot outdoor covered patio / living space. It boasts an enormous fire table and outdoor seating. The huge TV is perfect for streaming while taking in the sights and sounds of this incredible property. There is also a built in BBQ for all your grilling desires.

Back inside, you'll find a fully stocked kitchen and cozy living area. The bedroom area has a TV as well when you are ready to wind down the day. After a night of restful sleep, take your time and relax and recharge in the huge bathroom with walk-in shower. The washer and dryer is there as well if you need.

As you will see in the center of the courtyard area, sits a large fire-pit, which is a shared community space with the other two bedroom guest home. The entire space is surrounded by trees and the Tualatin River sits just a short walk beyond and down the ramp to the floating dock. Also as we mentioned earlier there is a small office above Marv's Place so people may come and go throughout the day. There is ample parking available for guests on the property as well. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions at all.

Special notes:

Please refer to the overhead photos about the layout and where parking is.

The perfect weekend getaway!
5/5 stars
My partner and I loved our 2 night stay at Marv’s Place! The space is super cozy and has an awesome outdoor area that’s great for watching movies or just hanging out. We loved being able to walk to the Tualatin River as well. The space is also in pretty close proximity to wineries (you can walk to one in ~10 min), dining, and groceries (just a short drive away). I’d highly recommend booking this spot and would love to stay again one day.

A Little Gem!
5/5 stars
Marv's Place is a little gem tucked away off of the highway and near the Tualatin River. The cozy, cute, and well decorated 1 bedroom is stocked with everything you could need. From lovely cookware, a Keurig, extra charging cords, and nice bath amenities, it was a perfect spot for a couple of nights. It is part of a small group of other offerings and it would be great to rent all three of the units as a group during a summer outing. Gorgeous outdoor spaces with fire pits and a lovely grill area. Unfortunately this was a super cold February stay for us, so we were not able to enjoy the outside. We would love to return.

More than I expected...
5/5 stars
I will definitely stay there again. The setting is beautiful, the home is exceptional and very private. Like a retreat for me. Much needed. I will be back next year!

Beautiful Getaway
4/5 stars
We really enjoyed our stay at Marv's place. The property is beautiful and so relaxing. The hosts thought of so many details (Full kitchen, indoor and outdoor blankets, games, hygiene items)! Downtown Portland is only 25 minutes away, and there are various wineries within 40 minutes. Our one complaint is that there was not a door or any sort of cover for the bathroom, which made things a bit uncomfortable. We did mention this to the owners, and if a door is added to the bathroom, I could see us staying here at least once a year.
