About this listing

Charming old house with new amenities -- private bedroom with access to 2 bathrooms (one with a claw-foot soaker tub), tv room, living room with fireplace, chef's kitchen and fenced in garden oasis. Close to beautiful parks, public transit, restaurants and bars. A relaxing retreat on a busy thoroughfare.

The space

Our house is all about comfort and relaxing. We have some nice furnishings but nothing is "untouchable". Our house is a 1935 English Tudor that went through an extensive renovation in 2006. The old charm is in tact with great modern amenities. Our house is on a busy thoroughfare which offers access to a lot of transportation options but once inside you get to unwind in comfort and quiet.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house except for our private bedrooms. We have 2 shared bathrooms (downstairs bathroom with full shower & tub; upstairs bathroom features a soaker tub). Kitchen, kitchen nook, dining room, living room and tv room are all available for your use. We also have WIFI available.

Interaction with guests

We are friendly but sometimes busy people. We are available to offer suggestions on great places to eat, drink and visit. We know Portland very well and have the inside scoop on the food and wine scene that we are happy to share. We also respect your privacy and encourage you to do your own thing because usually we are doing our own thing,

Other things to note

Are you a food/wine connoisseur? We can offer amazing recommendations on where to go and how to navigate.

Enjoy the outdoors? We can recommend hikes, swimming holes, ski resorts, and rafting expeditions.

Want to explore Portland Culture? We live in historic Piedmont neighborhood which borders Arbor Lodge. You can easily walk to Mississippi (1 mile), Alberta (2 miles), and the Williams District (2 miles).

Jessica and Ethan's place was a great starting point for our trip. We took a Lyft to and from Downtown for about $9 each way. Walking down Mississippi Ave was one of the coolest parts of our stay and was easy to get to from their place. Definitely try Sweedeedee for breakfast if you stay here! We went twice. Get the Honey Pie. That place was recommended to us by Jessica and Ethan, among many others. If you have any questions about what to do in the area, definitely ask them! They had a mental list of excellent suggestions ready to go, including a great itinerary for a Columbia River Gorge trip, which Jessica wrote down for us. I was impressed by how friendly and helpful they were as hosts. The listing does say it's on a busy thoroughfare, but the noise was hard to escape due to the heat. Though it was nice and quiet with the window closed, keeping it closed at night would've been too hot. I'd caution light sleepers to prepare if coming in open-window weather. I'm sure this is highly dependent on what you're used to at home, so it's not really a negative, but something to keep in mind. The soaker tub was an unexpected luxury for me. My girlfriend and I each enjoyed a bath. It's a nice touch. Overall, I was very satisfied with our accommodations and happy with the stay. Definitely recommended!

This place is so conveniently located. We visited in the middle of a heat wave, so the room was quite warm, but our hosts provided fans and just about every place in Oregon was this way during our trip. Loved Delta the boxer. She is so friendly. We enjoyed our stay!

About me: I have a long history of being a "do-gooder" (aka I've worked in non-profits for quite some time). I'm originally from Syracuse, NY and spent a decade living and loving Brooklyn. I am pretty mellow but the east-coaster in me re-surfaces on occasion (which is a good thing!). I love the water, adore the sunshine and appreciate it even more now that I live in Portland (absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? And summers here are spectacular -- they almost make you forget about the drizzle.).

About the other guy that lives here: My fiance, Ethan, is a chef and restauranteur. He co-owns two restaurants in Portland: Eat: An Oyster Bar in N Portland and The Parish located in the Pearl District. He is a southern gentleman from Arkansas and he is obsessed with college football (Go Hogs!).

About us: We are a laid back couple that enjoys life and loves to entertain.
