Our Neighborhood and Region


We live in the Portland Metro region in the  beautiful  state of Oregon.  Oregonians are very proud of our state. We are stewards to its mountains, high deserts, coast and fertile valleys. We have great wine, kayaking, and hundreds of miles of beautiful hiking trails. The beaches all along our expansive coastline are publicly owned and easily accessible.

Oregonians are among the friendliest people in the nation. We have fine schools and livable cities. In Portland we have theater, ballet, the symphony, plays and a thriving night life. This is a wonderful place to call home.

We are part of a larger network of Portland Cohousing Communities and meet regularly with them. (see links on side)
