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!
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.
Other Things to Note
The Breitenbush Room is dedicated to water...the 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!
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!
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 me know if you have any special needs. At this time we are keeping the house pet free, as many travelers have allergies. Welcome!
About the Host, Rochelle

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?
