We are most likely to accept guests who have been verified, have descriptive profile information and provide their reason for travel when they contact us. Since we began in 2012, we've hosted wonderful people from Germany, England, The Netherlands, Italy, Argentina, Cuba, India, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Iran, Czech Republic, New Zealand, Australia and the U.S.

Our historic Vancouver neighborhood is a peaceful escape from the bustle but close enough for easy access to all that Portland-Vancouver and the Columbia River Valley have to offer. We live offsite but are in the office almost daily which currently makes this more of a very comfortable and well-equipped guest house. We are happy to interact and provide helpful information for guests, at the house or by phone. With 4 rooms available, you are likely to cross paths with other guests.

Our 1920 home is 2000 sq. ft. on 3 floors with 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry.

If you have a pre-planned trip or are coming to Vancouver for work, this is a great place for you to stay. We can point you in the right direction to all that the beautiful Pacific Northwest has to offer.

Your bedroom is in the basement/bottom floor, which is the newest, remodeled part of the house. Completely private bedroom with new queen bed and 3'x9' alcove bed (great for an adult or kids). Shared bath with other basement guest room.

Sorry, no pets nor smokers. We do not have a completely child-proofed house, so we can only accommodate infant, non-ambulatory children or well-behaved kids over 5. Maximum 1-month stay.

Wireless internet, friendly guests, easy access. If no availability, please check our other listings: Room #s (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) on URL.

Guest access

Relax on the covered front porch hammock or Adirondack chairs and stare down a long dirt alley from the 50s. Or enjoy the backyard vegetable garden and patio.

Interaction with guests

We interact with guests less than previously at this point as we are working on premises weekdays but not always there nights. We have other very friendly guests in the house at the moment who are happy to engage.

We are an active family of 4 who relish meeting new people. As 20-year Vancouver residents, we'd be happy to share with you all that we know about the area. From the 17 wineries now in Clark County, Washington (one in our family) to the array of cultural events in nearby Portland, OR, we look forward to sharing our house and surroundings with you. We enjoy hiking, biking, tennis, traveling, musical events, words, philosophy, books, winery and brewery tours, organic cooking and dining, farmers' markets and more.

If you host us, you can expect to find your place in the condition in which you provided us or better. We're quiet, respectful guests interested in hearing your story.
