About this listing
My home is a 1913 Portland Craftsman. The main floor of the house has it's original with hardwood floors and built-ins. The bathroom is shared with the host but there is a separate door the guest can use. The modern kitchen has a high-end gas range along with an adorable breakfast nook.
The "cabin" room is upstairs and spans the length of the house. It's outfitted as a western cabin with a wood stove and cowhide lampshades. There's a queen-sized bed and a double deluxe futon, both are very comfortable. The cabin room has a flat screen TV with a dvd player with streaming video.
A queen bed in my daughter's room is available if you need and extra room. (I host only when she's not here).
My daughters room is adjoined to "the cabin" room.
Speaking of the back yard, there's a fully-fenced area with partially covered deck and a small lawn surrounded by benches and very cozy landscaping.
I don't allow dogs to stay, but my two hilarious dachshunds will keep you company. They love people and are very well behaved. The neighbors dog "Rocky" might bark at you when you walk by, he's very sweet and friendly.
There are lots of great restaurants and coffee shops close by on Division street!

I like to let guests know in advance that the bathroom is shared with the host but there is a separate entrance for the guest. The cabin room has a flight of stairs going up to it.
Interaction with Guests
I'm a very laid back host. I enjoy meeting new people and chatting but also respect when guests would prefer quiet and solitude.
Minutes to I-5, 10 minutes to downtown Portland by car, 20 by bus. 25 minutes from the airport. Safeway, Trader Joes, and New Seasons Market (think local Whole Foods) Division street is a close walk from my house and its a cute/funky shopping district with restaurants, a brand new food cart pod, bars, and countless coffee shops.
There is convenient public transit in my area. The bus stop is a few blocks away and the #9 will take you directly into downtown. This website is very helpful: http://trimet.org/
Feel free to come and go as you like. If you come in very late, please keep noise level down.
About the Host, Emily
I'm originally from New York City and have lived in Portland for the last 6 years. I'm a mom, mini-dachshund owner, NPR junkie, strong coffee drinker and am always on the hunt for great food (which there is plenty of in PDX). I have been an Airbnb host for a while now and love meeting new and interesting people.
