House - Private room · NE Alberta St, Portland, OR 97211, United States

The Space

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

Located in the exciting and enterprising Alberta Arts District, we have 4 environmentally- themed guest rooms, as well as shared accommodation to serve you. Stay for a day or a week, we have price points geared toward all traveler budgets!

Enjoy your stay in our tranquil queen bedded Breitenbush Room w/private bath. Bunk bed for two additional guests has been added to accommodate larger groups. Note: Adults traveling w/children will receive family rate of $100/night.

The Breitenbush Room is dedicated to (email hidden)e composition of about 70% of both you and the Earth. Oregonians take water seriously—with all the rain, who wouldn’t—are vigilant about both conserving and enjoying it, and hope you will be too!

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'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!

If you have time for a getaway during your Portland visit, meander through the gorgeous waterfalls of the amazing geologic wonder that is the Columbia River Gorge. Stop off at Depoe Bay on our beautiful and rugged coast, where, if you’re timing’s right you’ll likely spot whales feeding just offshore. Hot Springs, yes! A day sitting by the river and soaking in the mineral pools at Breitenbush Hot Springs will rejuvenate you in body, mind & spirit!

Here and at home, please remember to be water friendly. Reuse your towel, shorten your shower, choose tap water over bottled—an easy choice here in Portland, where our municipal water is among the purest in the country!

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.

Come experience the quirkiest & most free thinking Portland neighborhood!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay in the Breitenbush room was super smooth and easy! The room and linens were clean, the directions were straightforward, and the others staying were friendly when we bumped into them. Thanks!

  • Brilliant communication to organise the best space for our group of 6 from Rochelle prior to arriving. This was simply the best location for us to explore the Portland we wanted to see, and barely left Alberta Street. Excellent and comfortable shared facilities, easy and free street parking nearby. Rochelle thoughtfully provided some overflow space for us on arrival, which was appreciated. Two main bathrooms to the property, with one shared by an art studio also on the property, although this did not cause any undue waiting time for us, and all shared spaces were clean and maintained. The house is decorated with various artistic touches, which was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would recommend this property for people seeking to experience Portland.

  • Rochelle was great at staying in touch before we arrived. I knew everything would go smoothly. It was clean and well taken care of environment. It was friendly and welcoming. There were guests hanging out in the community space and the porch getting to know each other.

    The area is full of sweet local shops, wonderful restaurants, and the arts are well represented.

    Due to the number of rooms and guests there was a bit of sound that traveled into the room from the stairs, so you may want ear plugs, but that's true for any multi-guest room BnB. There was a dorm-style room on the main floor, which gave it a bit of a feeling of a Youth Hostel, with plenty of opportunity for socializing. The kitchen had everything you'd need for a comfortable stay.

  • We contacted Rochelle the night before we were going to be in Portland. Luckily, she was able to put us up without any problem. The room was great, in a very fun neighborhood.

    October 2013
  • The room was nice, we were not bothered as was our preference but instructions were clear and getting settled was easy. It was a loud old house and we could hear the other house guests coming and going. Posted quiet hours helped. We enjoyed our stay over all.

    July 2013
  • Very nice house in a great area of Portland. We were a group of 8 and this place was good for us since some wanted private rooms and others wanted bunks. Rochelle and Millicent were easy to work with when we needed to change our arrangements. I'll definitely stay here next time I'm in Portland.

    July 2013
  • The location was prime. Right by all of our favorite eateries, bars and stores! The staff was VERY friendly and helpful! Would highly recommend this spot. PDX rules!

    April 2013
  • The check in was smooth even though I never got the chance to meet Rochelle. The other guest were courteous and respectful.

    December 2012
  • A no-frills, bare bones, bring your own tea and coffee experience. Clean room (Breitenbush) with comfortable bed and warm space heater. Noise from the street, creaky wooden stairs and other visitor's bathroom experiences was disturbing and is probably why earplugs are provided.

    November 2012
  • Rochelle is an excellent communicator and we felt very at ease. The room and bathroom in this charming character home was clean and quite comfortable. The location of this stay is perfect and we found the other guests friendly. The price is a little high for basic accommodations relative to the hotel not too far away where we stayed the previous night. Our infant daughter was a bit fussy and as the house is not super soundproof we worried about disturbing the other guests. We enjoyed our stay.

“Take only memories, leave only footprints.” – Chief Seattle 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!
