There is a railroad behind our home that passes once daily. This adds charm to our space :) We have noise makers available should you fear the train waking you in the night (this may or may not happen). While we are located in a brand new neighborhood, our home backs up to a 1200 acre wild life reserve that has bike trails for miles & walking paths along the Willamette River. From our deck you may enjoy a variety of birds and deer. Downtown is 5 min away.
