Sweet little space on quiet residential street, conveniently located close to SE PDX. Very clean, well taken care of and well stocked. Lots of hot water and comfy bed.
Noah's backyard cottage was perfect for our stay in Portland. It is in a quiet neighbourhood north of the city. We had a car so I can't comment on using public transport but we found it a short 10-15 minute drive into the centre of the city.
We found the cottage to be well equipped to prepare meals should you wish to, though we never did more that breakfast as the food in Portland is so fantastic.
The neighbour Amanda was lovely and gave us great suggestions for the neighbourhood and surrounding area. As did Noah through the guide map he gives you with heaps of recommendations on places to eat and drink nearby.
I never met Noah personally but he has a seamless check in process that works well.
I would definitely recommend Noah's place if you are looking for a quiet and comfortable stay just out of the city.
The place was private, clean and quiet. The freeway access was really good. We really enjoyed staying here.
This was a great visit. The cottage is wonderfully quiet, clean, well-equipped and there are even fancy birds outside in the yard to wake up to. I didn't meet Noah but communication was easy as was access to the space. Thanks again for letting me stay, Noah!
Adorable cottage quite close to the city. It fit the four of us (a couple and me and my kid) very comfortably, with plenty of bedding and linen for all of us. The sofa bed was comfy, as was the bed.
It was airy and light and bright, and we really loved waking u with the skylight above our heads.
The house manual was so detailed we did not have a single moment of confusion!
The neighbour and her dog were super friendly and helpful.
We wish we'd had longer to stay! If we come back to Portland this is the first place I'll look at.
The place is lovely, true to the photos. All the essentials were in the unit such as: a comfy bed, clean sheets, and toiletries. The place had a heater for the cold nights which was fantastic. I would definitely come back again.
We loved our stay at this little cottage! The space was perfect - clean, bright and included everything that we needed. The neighbourhood was quiet and located near great pubs and coffee shops. The house manual was very detailed - it had all the information we needed for our stay. We would definitely stay here again!
