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!
Feel free to stay as long as you like...we want our home to feel like home to you while you're here!
We are on several major bus lines and one block from a designated biking boulevard. By car we are 10 minutes from the airport, Lloyd Center Mall, Convention Center and Light Rail and less than 15 minutes to downtown Portland.
Easy check in! When you book your room, the house manual will have all the details regarding your stay. If you need to adjust your check in/out times we will make every effort to accommodate you. Because it's a guest house, you can have as much or as little interaction with the host and other guests as you desire. Kitchen is available for your use. Let us know if you have any special needs. At this time we are keeping the house pet free, as many travelers have allergies. Welcome!
This was the ideal AirB&B experience. The room was really neat and the Bodhi tree painting was very interesting to look at. Also, having a private bathroom was really really nice. The neighborhood was great as well. All the fooding and drinking options you could want within walking distance. Rochelle was a great host (although we never met her) and made staying in the Bodhi tree room a great experience.
Such a great place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Alberta Arts! Very charming house with everything you could need. We stayed in the bhodi tree room which was a private room. The bed was very comfortable and everything was extremely clean.
Very easy to get in to the place. Our only trouble was realizing it was literally right on Alberta street.. Which was so cool!! So we did take a lap around the corner before finding it.
It's next to the cutest children's book store.
If you stay here definitely take a little walk to the Tin Shed, it's my fave restaurant in portland thus far!
The Bodhi Tree room at the Alberta Arts Inn was delightful. Its decor is whimsical - the picture doesn't do it justice. There's an amazing painting of a bodhi tree on the wall and ceiling. The private bath was small and comfortable. The shared kitchen was always neat, and we used it to make coffee in the morning. We spent a lot of time in the sitting room downstairs, reading and using the excellent wifi. The home is situated right in the middle of the Alberta Arts section of Portland, and is a quick walk to many shops and restaurants.
Rochelle was there everyday, and checked to see that things were OK. (They were.)
Check out: Petite Provence (delicious and huge breakfast/brunch menu); RandomOrder Cafe (especially the Oregon Cherry Pie); I Love (Hot) Yoga studio (classes all day)
The keys were out, password worked, room was very clean, coffee was supplied, all appliances were clean and working well.
Easy transaction, parking, access. Room was clean, comfortable, free from street noise, and otherwise as described. Neighborhood was even cooler than described. Great little slice of Portland.

I've lived all over Portland, but after planting roots in the Alberta Arts district a nearly a decade ago, I can't imagine living anywhere else. 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 great spot--so close to fab food, art, yoga, and shopping for all budgets. (Don't forget to stop off for a slice of Random Order pie!) We've got our own local bike rental and public transportation options within 1 to 2 blocks.
Portland is rich in beautiful natural spots and diverse 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 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 lodgings when I travel.
I love being able to open our house to the fabulous folk who find their way to us. I look forward to meeting you and hearing some of your stories. Welcome!
