A beautiful 1942 Alberta Arts Urban Cottage, with MODERN amenities and VINTAGE charm! 10+ MINs from DOWNTOWN & PDX AIRPORT! A fantastic location nestled perfectly between the ALBERTA ARTS District, Concordia University, Parks & the fun and quirky McMenamins KENNEDY SCHOOL! Located in one of the most popular Portland neighborhoods, the Urban Cottage offers a peaceful escape, a comfortable setting, and WALKING DISTANCE to wonderful RESTAURANTS, PARKS, SHOPS, BARS, CAFES, and ART GALLERIES!

The space
This craftsman 1942 Alberta Arts Urban Cottage has all the Portland charm you're looking for and with all modern upgrades. Laney is the architect and Brent is the project manager for this 250 sf cottage. Our design priority is to make sure the cottage is beautiful, comfortable, with high functionality and adequate storage space. Besides having modern amenities, having a space with local flair is important to us. The cottage was renovated with local salvaged materials, including 100-year-old barn wood, Pratt and Larson tiles, period lighting fixtures, and an intricately designed ceiling constructed of local doug fir wood. Upon entry behind a wooden gate, you will have your own outdoor space and a private entry to the cottage. The living room french doors open to the backyard. The alternating stairs lead to a low-ceiling sleeping loft, a large operable skylight provides great views of the stars at night. The comfortable sofa bed in the living room provides an additional sleeping option. The kitchenette is economical and well equipped with all of the necessities, including a washer/dryer unit. The teal and white color theme and greek soaking tub in the bathroom will help you decompress after a long day of exploring the rose city. One side of the cottage is attached to the main property, but it is totally separate with its own entrance.

Guest access
There're plenty of free street parking space, the space in front of the property is usually open. Guests have the entire guest cottage and an outdoor private space with bistro table and 2 chairs in front of the cottage and behind the wooden gate. The back yard deck and furnitures are reserved for the main house guests . 2 free bikes for cruising around town, available during Spring and Summer seasons.

Other things to note
- We offer complimentary snacks, local wine and coffee, as well as natural herbal soaps and shampoo!
- You might see our beloved friendly dog, Molly Boo occasionally hanging out in the backyard. She'd love to visit you if you have your door open :)

With mountains, desert, the ocean, and waterfalls as our backdrop, we are happy to call this unique and beautiful city home!
