The converted garage has salvaged gym floor (fromPCC) that add color and light. There are 3 skylights so an abundance of natural light fill the place. There is a loft to sleep in and another small couch that pulls out as a single bed. There is a full kitchen but the only oven is a toaster oven. The bathroom is large and has a stackable washer dryer in it. There are chickens in the backyard so always fresh eggs to eat and I will leave basic necessities (such as coffee and cream) out there.
You'll enter through a set of carriage doors to my backyard. The entrance is separate but the backyard is shared with me and my 2 girls. There is a garden you're welcome to eat from and a nice sitting spot. The neighborhood is very nice and convenient. There is a Whole Foods and New Seasons within walking distance. I am between the Mississippi, Alberta and Williams neighborhoods. I'm 2 miles from downtown and the bus is very close. There are bikes you can use and maybe a car if arranged.
The place is made from mostly salvaged material. There are many crazy neat light fixtures and a curved church window from a church that was demolished. There is lots of privacy but you might hear chickens or a far away train.
My husband, 5 year old son, and I had a great stay. Everything was as described. Norah's place was clean, comfortable, and safe. Norah made our stay in Portland easy and enjoyable.
My friend, her dog, and I arrived a few hours later than we'd planned. Cold outside, but warm and homey inside. We loved our stay!! The chickens were adorable; the place was super cozy and clean. Nora really de-devils the details, with nice personal touches, like soaps and towels (and fresh eggs in the fridge.) Her place is super close to everything too, so heading out for a bite or a flick was easy, and coming "home" was perfect. When I visit Portland again, I'll be booking her place again.
This was such a sweet little space! Coffee and fruit in the morning. Such a unique little place, it inspires me to build one in my yard too. Thanks again Norah! If I'm coming up to Portland again I'd definitely stay again. Cheers!
Norah was the best host ever! She went above and beyond for us. She was patient and kind. The space was perfect, bed comfortable, bathroom and shower huge. The mini fridge fit everything we needed and the fresh eggs from her chickens in the backyard were great! Also, the rocking chair was amazing after long days of exploring. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much!
Norah's carriage suite was perfect for our stay in Portland. This was our first Air BnB experience and Norah sure has set the bar high! The loft bed was oh so comfortable and the bathroom was bright, big and clean. There was coffee, cream, eggs, fruit and other snacks available in the fridge and laundry (although we didn't need it). We barely saw Norah but she was a gracious host and easily accessible by text. She was very accommodating to our dog, which is always a bonus. Location wise, Norah's place is close to everything including the Mississippi strip and only a short 5-10 minute drive into Downtown. We will definitely be contacting Norah the next time we head to Portland!
My first Airbnb experience and couldn't be happier. I was looking for private place to stay while attended the United Bicycle Institute for two weeks and Norah's was perfect. Very convenient location and the unit has all the accommodations one would ever need. Would love to stay here again.
Norah was so great! Totally welcoming and fun. Left us fresh eggs in the fridge. We'd love to come back and stay with her again! Love you, Norah!
Norah was fantastic! The space was clean and beautiful. There were fresh eggs, coffee, and creamer available. When we arrived we met Norah and her two kids. The children were very sweet and Norah was extremely accommodating. The space was a perfect size for two and we even had our dog with us. The bed in the loft was very comfortable and the rest of the unit very roomy for its size. The location was great -- in walking distance of other fun neighborhoods. If you need a private place to stay in Portland that feels like your own and is affordable, this is the place to go!
The house is so clean and several tools are there like kitchen tools, washing machine, cloth dryer, shampoo, etc.
I spent a day so comfortably.
Thank you so much!
We had a great stay at Norah's. During our one night stay we didn't actually meet her in person, but was very pleased with the email and text interaction we had with her.
I was very happy with how easy it all was. She left a key for us, making the time we needed to check in flexible.
Based on the description, the cottage was exactly what we were expecting. The bathroom is humongous with a nice big shower, and the loft bed was a lot of fun.
We had a great stay and would absolutely recommend it to my friends.
