The space
This spacious, comfortable well-appointed two-bedroom, one bath home is the perfect place to land in Portland! A short four-block walk from the University of Portland, the Art House is a convenient launching pad for any neighborhood you’d like to explore in the city – just to start, you are near the St. John’s, Alberta Arts, Mississippi/Boise, Overlook and downtown neighborhoods.

Called the Art House, the 1924 bungalow showcases art and designer furniture by some of the area’s best artists. You can simply enjoy the art, you can purchase it (all artworks are for sale), or you can visit during your vacation with the owner, whose onsite studio is in the garage!

There is plenty of space and all the amenities you need to make the Art House your home away from home. The two air-conditioned bedrooms -- one with a new king bed and one with a new queen bed– are outfitted with luxurious 100 percent cotton linens. The bright full-size bathroom sports an extra-long tub and shower. WiFi is available throughout. The living room has a working fireplace and hosts two sitting areas, including a television with cable and DVD player. The dining room seats six at the handcrafted, curly maple table, and is the perfect place for romantic dinners or family and friend gatherings. The spacious kitchen has everything you need for cooking.

The Art House sleeps four people in comfort. There is also a comfy foldout cot if you need another single bed. It is perfect for city visits, romantic getaways, visiting relatives (including students at the University of Portland), visiting faculty, family holidays, weekends with friends, or solo travelers and professionals who crave a more homey atmosphere than a hotel can provide.

The Art House is pet friendly – well-behaved dogs are welcome with pre-arrangement and a deposit. We have a dog cushion for them! Shared with the owner is a fenced back yard with a quiet patio, and a ready BBQ for grilling.

One off-street parking space is available, and there is plenty of street-side parking in this peaceful and quiet neighborhood. You will sleep soundly!

The onsite owner, Leah, is an artist and art teacher, who lives in a separate unit in the basement and works on the property -- her painting studio is housed in the converted detached garage. She is available if you need help, and is always happy to tour you around the studio, but will otherwise leave you alone to enjoy a peaceful vacation.

Where you’ll be

Portland, Oregon, United States

This is among the closest vacation rentals to the University of Portland, so if you are a visiting professor or a parent visiting a student enrolled at the school, you couldn't find a closer place to stay. There are two small parks within easy walking distance. The main portion of Columbia Park is a mile away with huge trees and walking paths and a pool and playgrounds. The neighborhood is close to downtown and to more bustling places with little shops and galleries (St. John's, Kenton, and Mississippi-Boise). There are good restaurants nearby, on Lombard and Greeley.
University Park itself is a quiet green oasis. Many of the neighbors have lived here a long time. It's a peaceful place, and we are so excited to share it with you.
