Come experience a signature Portland neighborhood!
Guests may make use of the common areas--including front porch, sitting room and kitchen.
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.
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 us know if you have any special needs. At this time we are keeping the house pet free, as many travelers have allergies. Welcome!
Comfy guest house. Has hostel-feel but better and more homely. Common areas all clean and well kept--kitchen, living room, porch, bathroom. Room I was in was spacious with queen size bunk beds. I had a private experience, though--room to myself. Bus lines, grocery stores, restaurants, and food trucks all at your footsteps! Towels provided, nicely place next to your bed and fridge available to all guests (up to you if you want to label your food, but I didn't). Great stay. Will stay here again.
Owner was easy to communicate with. She arrange for a private room since I was coming in late from airport even thou I had reserved double room. Place was old house, walls are thin, and floors have character. Bathroom was clean but have to use small space heater to warm it. I left early next morning and did not see any other guest at the hostel.
Inn Alberta Arts guest house was nice, cozy and comfortable. Except they setup energy-saving thermostat program to lower heat at night. First night, I wasn't sleep well and freeze. One blanket and bedspread weren't enough. Next day, I was provided extra blanket and a space heater to keep my room warm at night. I slept better. Unfortunately, bathroom was too cold at night. I really enjoyed neighborhood on Alberta St. There were plenty vegan and veg-friendly cafes and restaurants on the street, also food co-op grocery was only half block away. Public bus stopped by the corner street only one block away from Inn. It took about 35 minutes to downtown. Public transportation were friendly service everywhere. Portland was down to earth and Eco-friendly. I love it. I want to visit Portland again for future vacation.
An excellent stay! The keypad on the front door was very handy to enter the house without meeting the host because we arrived late in the evening. Accommodations were basic but definitely sufficient for our one-nite stay. There was lots of free street-side parking outside. We also enjoyed very much chatting with the other travelers who were staying there that nite.
The general area was also very good. There are multiple coffee shops along Alberta St. Highly recommend; would stay again!
This is a lovely guest house in a lovely neighborhood. Although I never met the owner face-to-face, she always replied quickly to my emails and texts and made me feel welcome by posting a greeting on the door to my room. I would stay there again!

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!
