Everything about The Woodshed is distinctive, but we especially love how light and airy, yet cozy, the space is, even in Portland's darker months. This place was created by someone with a lot of dreams, a deep, unwavering love of wood in all its forms, and an interest in employing it often, and with wild abandon.

The studio lay-out is a great fit for one to two people who like each other.

At The Woodshed, you have your own kitchenette, bathroom with a shower, living space, Wifi, a neighborhood library branch next door, and shared access to a full backyard (going through a transition during the 2013-14 winter).

The space is heated, and the bed has a heating pad for the colder months. Fans and lots of windows and some french doors out to the garden for lots of air flow during the warmer months.

Two beautiful vintage cruiser bikes available to rent during your stay! $10 rental for each bike, includes helmet, locks, lights. The equipment must be returned in the same condition it was rented. Guests will be held financially responsible for loss or damage to the equipment.

Since this is a separate space, we need not interact at all, but if you want to swap stories, we can, as we are right next door, and happy to help with any questions that might come up.

This is a great up-and-coming neighborhood in Portland. There is an incredible diversity in just a few block radius, including some of the best authentic Asian restaurants in town, The Grotto (a beautiful garden space created for prayer, contemplation, meditation), numerous bikeways, and all within a few miles of the airport (but not in the flight path). It's a short skip and a jump to some NE neighborhoods- Alameda (1.5 miles), Hollywood (2 miles), and Alberta (3 miles) neighborhoods- all with loads of unique shops and restaurants.

We primarily use public transportation and bikes to get around and feel like all of Portland is easily accessible, but have come to realize that visitors need more context for where we are located, so here are some references: The Woodshed is about 7 miles from downtown Portland, 4.5 miles from Mt. Tabor/Hawthorne District, 5 miles from SE Division Street, 4.7 miles from NE Mississippi, and 8 miles from North Portland/St. John's. Those are some of the most common parts of town people like to visit, and we are on the outer edge of North-East Portland. This space makes a great, quiet home-base for greater-Portland exploration.

Speaking of exploring, Portland has the greatest public transportation ever! Check out the Trimet website to find out about bus, Max (light rail), and street car options. As mentioned above, we have loads of bikeways, too, for the bike commuter, and Portland is a delight to walk in. But if you have a car, parking is available (on-street or in the driveway). 2 adult vintage cruisers are available (along with locks, helmets, lights) for rental fee of $10/bike while you stay.

At The Woodshed, you have your own kitchenette, bathroom with a shower, living space, Wifi, a neighborhood library branch next door, and shared access to a full backyard (going through a transition and rebuilding in 2014).

I didn't get to meet my host due to the schedule. I did have a nice stay and would like to book again if the room is available next time.

I really enjoyed my time at the Woodshed! Ariel was a great host. Though I didn't actually see her, the check-in and check-out were seamless and easy. The Woodshed itself was beautiful and cozy and warmed up quickly with the heat. I didn't explore the immediate neighborhood but I took advantage of Portland's excellent public transit; bus stops were less than 5 minutes' walk from the Woodshed and made every part of the city that I visited easily accessible within 20-40 minutes, and cheaply! I would definitely recommend staying here. It would be easier with a car, but as I said, I didn't have one and I did fine.

This was my second stay at Ariel's Woodshed. It is a convenient location for anything on the NE side of Portland. The Woodshed is just as described and pictured. Ariel was great on the correspondence and texting to make sure everything was ok at the Woodshed. She left an extensive list of restaurants and places to visit. I highly recommend the Woodshed to anyone and will return again when I have a business conference near the airport.

Very pleasant and cozy place with great artwork on the walls and cool skylights! The coffee was delicious. Parking was easy.

This is my first Airbnb review! The picture doesn't do the woodshed justice! The place was very clean and well maintained. It was very cozy and gave us the cabin vibe because of the wood walls. We went when it was rainy and windy so the cabin did get cold, but the small heater does the job! The whole place will warm up in about 10 mins. The kitchen is well stock with tons of tea and stumptown coffee beans. The restroom is stocked with toiletries. It's really hard to explain how spectacular this place is. The best way I can describe the woodshed is if any of you guys ever watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the scene where they enter the world cup series and the crew enters the small tent, once enter, the tent turns into a huge house. Ariel, even though we went during bad weather, your woodshed made our stay so much better. Can't wait to come back!

Awesome location. The backyard is amazing in the mornings and with The Grotto being down the street (I felt mishievious because the trail to the elevator had a sign stating the elevator required tokens via the gift shop which I did not acquire and nobody showed up until I was almost done walking the "upper trail"), its a great place to come home to, and wake up in. Would stay again for sure.

Ariel was a wonderful host! She responded quickly to any questions we had. The studio was even better than described, nicely laid out, exceptionally clean, comfortable, and convenient. Good coffee and coffee maker, great cooktop. This was a perfect stay and we will definitely be back again when in Portland. Thank you so much, Ariel!

I'm a mid-level Portlander. For example, I bike commute but don't ride a fixie.

I love, love, love the PNW and have bounced around this little corner most of my life, with a few jaunts to other climes. I spend my days working at a large institution, managing a very productive department, daydreaming about gardening. I have taken to gardening at night by headlamp, to fit it all in.

I'm a voracious reader, or can be when there is time, and tend toward starting crafting projects and abandoning them about 3/4 of the way through.
