The Space

*Ask and you shall receive: A couple of recent reviews indicated that it would be nice to update the bathroom. As soon as I can find a carpenter, that will be done. And until then, I've lowered the nightly rate. (fyi, photos are completely accurate so as you can see it's still pretty cute). I've also upgraded the tv (big time) and upgraded the mattresses.

Now back to the description :)

This cheerful and bright private apartment is located in "the valley"; An urban central Portland neighborhood between the West End & Libbytown ~ Close to fantastic restaurants, shops, galleries, cafes, walking trails & beaches plus only a 7 minute drive to the airport and a 5 minute walk to either the train or bus station.

The Arts District/Downtown is less than 1 mile away & the Old Port is just beyond that about another 3/4 mile.

The building is a 1900 New England colonial with some modern flair. The apartment is one of only 2 units in the building. Both are used as vacation rentals. This unit is on the 2nd floor and should be noted that it's accessed by a somewhat narrow staircase (should limited mobility be an issue).

My home is the house next door so if you need advice on what to explore or have any other questions feel free to call on me.

The apartment has 1 bedroom with a double bed, a separate living/dining area and 1 bonus room with a twin bed. So in all there is sleeping space for 3. - More if you want to put an air mattress in the living room. **The bonus room is not available in cold months because it doesn't have its own radiator.

There is also a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances, a full (yet small) bathroom with a cute claw foot tub/shower combo (very Maine), a funky little tree house looking enclosed 3 season porch off the kitchen, and outside is a small patio with seating & tiki torches. There is ample, free on-street parking.

Well behaved hypoallergenic (non-shedding) dog welcome for an additional $5 per night, due upon check-in

* This is a non-smoking building, strictly enforced.

Thanks so much!
