This large, bright, and airy bedroom/bathroom suite sits above a two-car garage, separate and across a courtyard from the main house. With your own access through the garage, it affords you quiet and privacy in the heart of Portland's downtown Pearl District (NW side). The Pearl District has become a destination with art galleries, boutiques, interesting bars, tea and coffee shops, microbreweries, grocery stores, and restaurants: the complete urban experience. Breakfast or brunch on the weekend is available, for example, at any of a dozen places nearby. Three city parks are within six to eight short Portland blocks. In our vicinity are a 24 Hour Fitness, the Pacific Northwest College of Art, shops, condos and townhouses. The neighborhood consists of rehabbed industrial and commercial buildings along with new construction.
Our courtyard is a lovely location to sip coffee or tea you prepare in your room or wine that you store in the room's refrigerator. The room has a queen bed, a desk, and club chairs in a sitting area. You come and go as you wish through the garage into the courtyard rather than the main house. We don't have to know you're there or we are happy to chat with you about the City and its sites. Check out (Website hidden by Airbnb) parking space is available with the room but you may not need it unless you want to visit the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon's famed Pinot Noir region or Sauvie's Island (Portland's in-city agricultural island). The suite is 1.5 blocks from a street car stop. Walk to the Art Institute of Portland, the Chinese Garden, Old Town/China Town, Powells City of Books, Saturday Market, or to Center Stage at Gerding Theater. The street car takes you to soccer or basketball games, to the river front, Keller Auditorium, Portland Art Museum, Schnitzer Theater, the Japanese Garden in Washington Park, Portland State University, and Portland's many small theaters, restaurants, and distillery row on its hip East Side. Portland is a walkable city. Mass transit, Uber, taxi or car can take you to Reed College, Lewis and Clark College, and the University of Portland. The City and its unique neighborhoods are at your feet.
The suite has a 32" Smart TV that receives major networks and a few other channels through an antenna. If you bring the login information for your cable provider, Netflix, Hulu, etc., you will be able to watch movies, etc., on this TV.
