Welcome to Portland! We've got it all--world-famous restaurants, food carts, doughnut makers, breweries, coffee roasters, and wineries all within reach. If you are itching to get out of the city, we are a hop skip and a jump from the Oregon coast, the Columbia River Gorge, Multnomah falls, Mt. Hood, and wine country. Our house is about a 15-20 minute drive to the airport, and 15 minute drive to downtown Portland. We are about a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive to Reed College. This is a perfect to stay here for college visits/graduations. Our house is an easy (5-8 minute) walk to the Woodstock restaurants/bars/coffee shops, as well as the Sunday Farmer's Market.
We have a gorgeous sunny bedroom with Queen sized bed with luxury linens in our recently completed (New construction completed in December 2012!) 6 BR 3.5 BA Portland Foursquare home.
Your lovely yellow room is downstairs, adjacent to the huge (1000 square foot) family room.

The family room has a 40-inch HDTV with cable, some arm chairs and Thai floor cushions, as well as a desk and table for your use. This room is perfect for those who want a lot of space and/or privacy.
The kitchen is large and sunny, with stainless appliances, granite counters, large island with prep sink and bar stools for relaxed meals. It opens to the great room, with gas fireplace and large HDTV. Off the kitchen there is a formal dining room with box beam ceilings, and small library. We have a large front porch, and covered back deck that overlooks the fenced-in backyard, perfect for relaxing or dining on warm days.
Our house is in the Woodstock neighborhood, about a block from Woodstock Boulevard, not far from Reed College, and within walking distance of many great bars, restaurants, a Safeway grocery store, and 3 parks. The closet bus stop is on 52nd and Woodstock, about 2 blocks away. There is ample (free) street parking.
Your hosts are a typical Portland couple--Brian is a Portland native, and works in the coffee industry, and will offer you your daily cup or three in a myriad of ways. Shannon is fluent in Danish and Chinese, and practices acupuncture and Chinese medicine at a busy clinic, little Kieran is 2, and likes to kick soccer balls, eat avocados and dance.
Our home is childproofed, and we have a spare pack and play and lots of books and toys to share with our youngest guests.
In addition to coffee and Chinese medicine we enjoy cooking, wine, craft beer, movies, indie music, sporting events, international travel, and always enjoy meeting new people.
Please let us know your expected arrival time so we can figure out hot to get you keys-- our schedules vary a lot from day to day.
We look forward to hosting you soon!!
Please let us know when you think you will arrive so we can figure out keys.
No smoking indoors.
Please just be mindful of banging doors when the baby is sleeping-- he takes a nap from 11-2,and goes down around 7 in the evening. However he sleeps very well-- we watch TV, throw dinner parties, live normally while he is asleep.
We had a wonderful time staying in the Yellow room, and would stay again. We loved the open basement area and met some other nice travelers in the room next door. We have no complaints and would recommend for a stay!
PERFECT! Most warm and kind people!! Lovely kids and beautiful home. Couldn't have been more comfortable. Seriously look back to staying here again!
Brian and Shannon have been very welcoming, even though we arrived later than expected. The room was cozy and private. The bed was super comfy and we loved the organic soaps & shampoo in the cute bathroom! The house is not downtown, but we enjoyed checking out the bars and restaurants in the neighborhood after spending all day downtown. The reviews give this room justice; we had expectations and the hosts delivered!
Host was super nice. She greeted us and showed us around the area area we could use. Both the room and bathroom were very clean. You can not go wrong with renting a room here.
I found the space very welcoming and comfortable. The bathroom was also nicely appointed with amenities and towels. I didn't meet the owners but did meet their house sitter who was very nice. Bed was comfy and they had a nice selection of books/magazines.
The biggest downside is you really can hear a lot of noise upstairs, so I was woken up earlier than I would have liked (around 8 am) by movement upstairs. I would stay here again if I was getting up early or there were no guests upstairs at that time. If you're an early riser this shouldn't be an issue.

I'm a Sinologist and Five Element Acupuncturist in private practice in Portland Oregon, and am married to Brian, who does consulting for local coffee and beer companies. We have a gorgeous son, Kieran, born in October of 2011. We are avid travelers, and love to meet new people.
Brian is a coffee snob, and loves cooking and wine tasting. Kieran is obsessed with trains and enjoys music, books, swimming, and eating.
My favorite travel destination is China, and Thailand is a close second. Brian prefers Bali, and would love to eat his way through Italy and France.
