Amy was delightful. The cottage was as described and perfect for me and my husband. We really appreciated various amenities that one would usually have to purchase. We would definitely stay there again. It felt like home.
Lovely place - very well designed and maintained. Amy's place was everything we expected - based on the reviews we had read. Nothing but good things.....comfortable, clean, calm and restful setting. We also enjoyed her dog who quietly peered in our window one morning as we were enjoying coffee........wonderful.
Amy's cottage is truly a gem! I loved how private and tucked away the cottage was, with easy access to the Japanese Garden, Arboretum, Rose Garden and Pittock Mansion and only a two-minute drive to the city center...the location provided the best of both worlds! Amy warmly greeted us upon our arrival and offered to answer any questions we had and provided recommendations for places to visit. Amy takes great care of the cottage- very clean, great decor, comfortable bed, and fun local Portland guides/magazines on the coffee table to peruse. It really felt like a "home away from home." We loved our stay there and hope to visit again soon. Thank you, Amy!
I highly recommend staying at the Private Guest Cottage in NW Portland. Amy and her family are warm and welcoming while still providing privacy. The cottage was extremely clean, the bed very comfortable and the garden is beautiful. The cottage is also well appointed with everything I needed for the entire month I stayed with Amy. The location is perfect for exploring Portland.
Amy is a wonderful host. The cottage is super charming and so close to downtown! I wish I could live there.
Thank so much Amy!
We loved staying at this beautiful cottage! It was such a cute, clean, and quiet little place in a gorgeous neighborhood. It definitely meets the description listed and it's only a 2 minute drive to fun restaurants and shops. Amy was so sweet and accommodating, and even delivered homemade cookies the second night of our stay. I would definitely recommend it and stay here again myself!
I felt very welcome in the reservation process and when I arrived. My stay was delightful!
About the Host, Amy
I'm an educator and my husband is in the lumber business. We're originally from California but have made Portland our home for over a decade. We feel lucky to live in such a beautiful, vibrant place! We treat our guests the way we like to be treated, giving them all the privacy they're looking for but being available to answer questions or give suggestions about places to go and things to do in the area.
For an additional fee, our teenage son is available to run errands for you-- grocery shopping, bringing back take out, etc.
