Buff was very accomodating! I felt very welcome and taken care of during my stay, and I would definitely recommend her place to others!
We were heading to Portland to consider a relocation, and so glad we found Buff's Pad! A cute room with its own bathroom in an artsy home with a nice host; how could you beat that? Conveniently located to a lot of great neighborhoods to visit, stroll, or do business in, Buff is located nearby beautiful St. John's, it's gorgeous bridge over the Willamette River, and its old-town shops, restaurants, and pubs. 20 minutes from Downtown.
The back yard is very mellow, and the little fridge in the room is just the right size for 2 people.
We traveled with our little dog and bird, and they seemed to have a good stay as well!
Definitely a great find in North Portland!
Buff is a very kind and caring host. I had a pleasant,
