About this listing

This is the guest room in a large, cozy house with four creative house mates (artists/musicians). We use the room for visiting friends and also rent it via Air BnB. The house is amazingly centrally located and has the feeling of home away from home.

The Space

Guests will have their own private bedroom with full-sized bed, complete with under-bed storage. It can comfortably sleep two people. There is a cozy reading corner with a work table, shelves for your personal items, and a rod for hanging your clothes. It is a small bedroom, with no closet, ideal for those who will mainly be using it for sleeping, so please be aware of that before booking.

The house is huge so you never feel cramped here. There are so many different spots to hang out and get comfortable. All of the house mates are very friendly. We are supportive of all kinds of different lifestyles and celebrate diversity and creativity.

We have two cats who are quite friendly as well. One might sit outside your door and cry for pets, sorry in advance! Also, we have a songbird in the dining room and a very sweet and silent dog who doesn't bark.

Please be aware that this house is over 100 years old and hasn't been remodeled. That is what adds to its charm, but can also make it seem a little run-down as well. This isn't a home from a Portland magazine spread, it is a lived-in, cozy, artsy home. We try to keep it very clean but if anything isn't up to your standard please let us know and we will address it immediately!

Guest Access

You will have access to two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a shower and tub, as well as clean towels. Guests are free to use the kitchen and any dishes that are needed as well as space in the refrigerator. The common areas in the house (living room, dining room, front porch, back porch, basement, back yard) are all open to the guests as well. Guests are also free to use the washer and dryer.

Interaction with Guests

The 4 adults who live in the house all have varying schedules. We are rarely all home at once. We are all very friendly and can offer suggestions and information about Portland. However, you probably won't interact with us for very long periods of time as we all have a lot going on much of the time.

The Neighborhood

This house is very centrally located with easy access to downtown via car, bike, or public transit. It is also within walking distance of the Alberta Arts district and the Mississippi neighborhood (two of the coolest spots in Portland full of coffee shops, bars, restaurants, clothing and goods shopping, and music venues). There are also two healthy grocery stores (New Season's and Whole Foods) within a short walk from the house. There is a large and beautiful city park literally 100 feet from the front door as well!

Getting Around

There are major bus lines on both ends of the street within a 1-2 minute walk in each direction.

House Rules

We ask that our guests pick up after themselves, keeping the common areas clean. We do not charge an additional cleaning fee for the room so we ask that you leave it in good condition. Respect for the house and those who live there is a must!
