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!
The room and house was wonderful! I made a very last minute request and Rochelle was very responsive and helpful. I had a good night's sleep because of her! Great location as well!
Everything was just perfect! We loved the neighborhood and were so glad we were right in the heart of it. The Inn was so unique and welcoming. We really enjoyed the opportunity to interact with the other guests and learn a little bit about them during our stay. We loved Portland and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Bodhi Tree Inn. Rochelle was quite accommodating and she kept the place very clean and neat. The location couldn't be better - smack in the center of Alberta street, 5 min walk from cool bars and restaurants and boutique shops. We would definitely come back, and strongly recommend this place. The artwork on ceiling and walls made the room that much more fun and memorable. Thank you Rochelle!
The house was very easy to find and super- easy to get around Portland by bus, which stopped only a few houses away from Rochelle's. It was really clean and comfortable. Although Rochelle,herself, was not there, she had a friend who greeted us and was very helpful for anything we might have needed. In fact, Rochelle kept in touch with us via email to make sure we were comfortable. Terrific place to stay, but thank goodness they supplied ear plugs, because it is an old home with wooden floors and creaky stairs and doors. We would recommend this place.
The Bodhi tree room fit our needs for a one stay in Portland. Location was perfect, bed was comfy, check-in was super convenient.

About the Host, Rochelle
“Take only memories, leave only footprints.” – Chief Seattle
I've lived all over Portland, but once I landed in the Alberta Arts district that was it. Even in a city known for 'different', Alberta pushed the free- and forward-thinking envelope just a little bit further.
I've worn a lot of different hats over the years, but right now I'm drawn to the intersection where art, activism and the cooperative movement meet. I think the Alberta neighborhood is a great template where we might develop and model sustainable local urban living--I'd love to see food planted up and down the alleys, Alberta Street turned into a permanent walking/shopping boulevard. Cottage industry coops of all stripes, art everywhere!
I'm happy to open our house to the fabulous folk who find their way to us. What's your passion?
