The suite is situated in the daylight basement of our one hundred year old home on a tree lined street, near restaurants and shops.

In the corner of the sitting room you'll find some kitchen essentials, a microwave, a small refrigerator, an electric kettle, an electric burner, and a french press. We keep it stocked with fresh ground coffee, and instant oatmeal for a quick on the go breakfast. I am always happy to loan any additional cooking supplies; spices, utensils, or pots and pans, as needed.
But who needs to cook when there are so many amazing restaurants in our neighborhood like Ox, Toro Bravo, Bunk Bar, Russell Street BBQ, ExNova, Sizzle Pie, and Tiny's, all just a few blocks away.

My husband and I have lived in this beautiful four square house for 9 years. Scott is a native Oregonian, I was born just outside of Boston. I spent the first half of my life on the East Coast, with a little time spent in LA.
Five things I can't live without: Mount Hood Vanilla tea, my awesome camera, my wonderful children, my generous husband, and tuna salad with tarragon.
I have a home office, so I am often available for suggestions and directions.
