Welcome to our guest house! We love our neighborhood and know you will, too!

Located right on Alberta Street in the heart of the exciting and enterprising Alberta Arts District, we have 4 guest rooms to serve you. Stay for a day or a week, we have price points geared toward all traveler budgets!

The Bodhi Tree Room--a tranquil retreat designed with your peace and comfort in mind--- has 1 queen bed and a private bathroom.

The Alberta Arts District is the center of all that's weird and wonderful about Portland. Come hang out at our guest house and wander Alberta Street...it's a cornucopia of funky and independent shops, galleries, bars & restaurants. We've got world famous pie, 5 kinds of Thai, an amazing tea shop, vegan bakery, co-op and guitar shop within a few blocks. Catch a flick at the Kennedy School or live music at the Alberta Street Pub or Alberta Rose Theater.

Every Last Thursday, we have a freewheeling art festival on the street. Last Thursday is a rich tradition where it's free to vend and attend. You'll see washboard bands, teen violinists, Native American drumming circles, fab art and funky attire right outside our front door!

  • I'd stayed here before, but not in this room! Wonderful, magical mural and a comfy bed. This room and this place are terrific!

  • The Bodhi Tree Room was charming, clean, and comfortable! We were able to enjoy the unique neighborhood, walk to a concert from this location, and feel safe inside and out--a wonderful experience!! I will stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to Portland looking for a "different"experience in housing options.

  • I was only there to sleep and dress so I haven't much more to say than it's a cute and clean house in a great neighborhood.

  • Wonderful location & neighborhood - very much enjoyed our stay. The Inn Alberta Arts was easy to find and access; Rochelle was very helpful in providing needed information ahead of time. Lovely room, lovely inn. (I wish we'd been able to stay longer than one night.) As other guests have noted here, the floors and stairs are rather creaky, but this did not disturb our sleep.

  • Awesome house! It's hostel style, VERY clean and well kept. The neighbourhood is amazing, lots of portland style coffee shops and restaurants close by, as well as eclectic pubs, bars, and some really cool food truck style eats. I would definitely stay there again- we met some great travellers from all over the world and had a great time hanging out on the awesome porch out front.

    October 2012
  • The room was clean, quiet and reasonably priced.
    The neighborhood is one of the more interesting in Portland to explore.
    All in all, a great stay.

  • On my recent trip through the area we stayed at several airbnb rentals and this was by far the best. I highly recomend.

About
“Take only memories, leave only footprints.” – Chief Seattle Bought a ticket to Portland in 1990 upon returning from England and haven't left the Northwest since. There were extended stops in Bellingham and Castle Rock, WA, and houses all around Portland, though now I can't imagine living in any neighborhood besides the Alberta Arts district. Even in a city known for 'different', Alberta pushes the free- and forward-thinking envelope just a little bit further. Our house is in a fabulous spot right on Alberta Street. Great food, art, yoga, and shopping abound for all budgets. And please don't pass on the pie at Random Order, less than 2 blocks away. Pie hater, I, and still it's divine! There's a nearby bike rental and public transportation options within 1 to 2 blocks. Currently we have an artist in residence expanding our artification. Right now, he's creating a mythic tree mural in one of our guest rooms. In the summer, look for our new and colorful patio! I'm a storyteller, currently writing a musical and hatching ideas at the intersection of art and activism. Portland is a great place for creativity - full of quirky, wonderful people, beautiful natural spots that feed the spirit and loads of cultural offerings.Must visits on my list include the Gorge waterfalls and Powells books - the ultimate planetary bookstore (at least in this galaxy). I think one of the best parts of traveling is feeling welcome and comfortable wherever you land. When I'm on the road, I steer toward cheerful, friendly spots with just the right mix of privacy and community. Living in England cemented my fondness for guest houses. Those happy stays in cozy homes primed me to seek out similar accommodations whenever I travel. While raising my son - he's off to college in western Mass - I wanted to fill him up with plenty of road time. We twice twirled the US and trekked a time or two to Europe, Mexico and Central America. I think travel is a priceless gift to children and if you're traveling with kids, I'll be delighted to welcome them as guests. I look forward to meeting you and hearing some of your stories - but only if you want to share!
