The Overlook Room is filled with vintage & antique decor. It is upstairs with a eclectic charm, brand new innerspring twin bed, TV/FireStick w/Netflix. Guests enjoy much more than simply a "private room;" I welcome guests to enjoy my "entire place" making this the perfect getaway! A large shared bathroom is just down the stairs. With a couple of other Airbnb rooms in the house travelers love meeting each other. The serene garden is perfect for quiet relaxing, including a hot tub.

Gary went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable in his wonderful home! I had a great stay and would highly recommend this room to anyone visiting Portland. The best part was meeting his two adorable dogs. My only regret is not staying there longer!
