This is the guest room in a large, cozy house with three 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

This is the guest room in a large, cozy house with three 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.

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 clothing rack for your clothes.

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.

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.

The 3 other 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.

This house is very centrally located with easy access to downtown via car, bike, or public transit. It is also close to the Alberta Arts district and within walking distance of 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 are major bus lines on both ends of the street within a 1-2 minute walk in each direction.

  • Hi, Shannon. Thank you very much for having me. It's really comfortable stay. If I have a chance to come Portland again, I'll contact you. Thanks Makoto

    June 2014
  • This was my first airbnb experience and I had a great time :) The house was clean and homey; all of the housemates were super friendly; and it was easy to get to all areas of Portland.

  • Shannon was friendly and helpful from before I arrived through my entire visit. The other housemates were equally delightful when I came across them in the kitchen (and gave me suggestions on where to find the best gluten-free, vegan baked goods). The room was exactly as shown--small but comfy! Perfect for a solo traveler, or two who don't mind sharing tight space.

    The neighborhood is cute and several bus routes run frequently around town from easy walking distance. There's also a grocery store a short walk away. I did quite a bit of wandering in different directions and found everything fairly easily accessible.

    I would also like to thank the resident kitties, Frankenstein and Oliver, for graciously sharing their sleeping space with me. I left the door unlatched and got much-desired kitty snuggles and purrs each night.

  • great location, the room was clean and comfortable, the house was spacious and lovely. didn't get to interact much with those who lived there - but a hassle-free and nice stay!

  • This room was perfect! The house is super, super clean and full of awesome things to look at in every corner. There was a cute friendly kitty around to greet me when I arrived. Shannon drew me an awesome map of the area and gave many suggestions for places to walk to.

  • Shannon was so kind and offered to take me in at the last minute! The house is as cute as they come, I slept like a dream, and would stay there forever.

    March 2014
  • Thanks to Shannon for hosting me this past month! I needed a place to stay for over three weeks on super short notice while I waited for my house to close and I'm glad I found these clean, quiet, and friendly folks. Even the cats really grew on me during my time here :)

    There is a New Seasons grocery store nearby within walking distance, and the 6 and 4/44 bus lines will take you towards the central parts of Portland on either side of the river. If you have a car, then things will be even easier.

  • Shannon and her roommates were great hosts! The house was always clean and quiet, which allowed me to go about my day comfortably and in peace. It's also in a location where the street parking is free (at least I hope it was).

  • What a great house - great people - great cats. I loved my stay there. Everybody there are super friendly. I'd stay there again, no doubt.

  • Our stay with Shannon was great. She was very accommodating and was even willing to stay up late to greet us on our first night of arrival. The house itself is grand and the historic architecture is beautiful. The cozy room is exactly how it was described. Located within a short walk to bus lines, and grocery stores and restaurants, we found Shannon's house to be ideal for our travels and daily city exploring excursions.
