About this listing
Comfy home, not the Ritz a far cry from a Super 8. Within walking distance of Autzen. Shopping, running trails, nice yard and garden for bbq's and sitting around the fire. Guest room updated with new paint, carpet, curtains and bedding. Pillows!
Comfy private home, 2 bdr, 1 1/2 bath, nice garden, two miles north of downtown. Country cottage style with large yard, central location. New carpeting and paint in Guest bedroom 2/2015.
Kitchen access, wireless, home owner sometimes home, sometimes on the road. Men's Road and mountain bike available.
Bedrooms are upstairs and include owner's room and spare room that is often rented individually. Both bathrooms are on main floor. You have exclusive use of the half bath, and share the full bath if you are just renting the spare room.. Towels, soap and shampoo provided like any motel. But the goal is for you to enjoy access and use of the whole house, including kitchen and refrigerator space.
Four major grocery stores, and three shopping centers nearby. Motel 6 is $59 off I 5. Ridiculous...Stay with me, friendly comfort, better bed, free wireless, full kitchen, close to campus and downtown for less.
Oakway shopping center, Gateway Mall and Valley River Center all nearby.
Near river bikepaths, Pre's Trail, parks in every direction.
Owner is often away so you may have the place to yourself, but he is also quiet, respectful and doesn't have to entertain you if you want your space.
Both bathrooms are on main floor. Towels, soap and shampoo provided like any motel. But the goal is for you to enjoy access and use of the whole house, including kitchen and refrigerator space.
During the summer you can eat blueberries, cherries, strawberries, raspberries and vegies from "your" own garden.
I've learned a better way to invite guest to be comfortable. Imagine you are staying with an old college (email hidden)'s not the Ritz, but not Motel 6 either.
Full house access. Space in frigerator, personal use of half bath when renting just the guest room. Everything when renting whole house. Fenced back yard for dogs.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they desire.
Surrounded by parks, running trails, bike paths.
Local bus transit right down the block.
Welcome to my humble home. I hope you will feel comfortable, as if you were staying at the home of an old college roommate. Other than drinking the last beer in the refrigerator or leaving the bathroom a mess I’m pretty casual and want your stay to be restful and enjoyable.
