Country in the City! Clean, comfortable guest cottage in a beautiful, forested west hills location. 1 bedroom w/ queen bed, 1 bathroom, sleeping loft, well-equipped kitchen, wood floors, washer/dryer, flatscreen cable TV, wifi, parking. Directly across the street from public transportation. Within walking distance to Forest Park trails, Pittock Mansion, and Hoyt Arboretum. Just a couple of minutes driving time to Washington Park, Rose Garden, Oregon Zoo, NW 23rd and downtown. Close to St. Vincent's Hospital, Nike, and Intel.
Located in the highly desirable Hillside neighborhood.
We loved our stay at Amy's cottage. Super comfortable and surrounded by a beautiful back yard. Nice bed and linens. Good shower. Amy was a great host. She made us feel very welcome. Her son got us some groceries that I had asked for. We walked to the Pittock mansion for an amazing view of the city. Highly recommended!!
The Guest Cottage made for a wonderful stay in Portland. Everything was clean and comfortable. Amy was very welcoming, flexible with our check in (as we had early flights), and gave great recommendations about local restaurants. The bus stop was a very short walk from the house and provides transportation straight into downtown. Finally, Season 1 and 2 of Portlandia are available, which we found to be a nice touch. I would definitely recommend a stay at Amy's Cottage.
I had an incredible stay at Amy's sweet little cottage in the Pacific Northwest. The place was absolutely immaculate and looks exactly like the photos. The location is terrific, very close to downtown (I did have a car-which I would highly recommend- so I explored extensively). Amy is an absolute doll and was so helpful giving me many phenomenal recommendations that only a local would know, making my Portland Experience truly authentic and fantastic. I would highly recommend this cottage to have some peace and quiet (tucked in the lush hills of the city) as well as is close to the action.
We have just loved our stay in this quaint cottage. Amy was so welcoming and we felt very comfortable the entire time. This place is just beautiful, clean and just as represented. It is so lush, when we looked outside it was like we were living inside a terrarium. Very close to the bus stop. Two blocks from a great neighborhood filled with eateries and shops. We loved coming back each day to our cozy home. The cottage was roomy, so much better than a hotel! Amy was helpful whenever we needed something. Would recommend highly and we would most certainly return. Just loved everything about it!
What a wonderful place to spend a weekend. Idyllic and peaceful would be the words to describe the setting. Kate and I had a wonderful stay in Amy's cozy little space. We would recommend this place to anyone and would love to stay here again during our next visit to Portland. Thanks again Amy & Chris!

We were met at the cottage with a very nice note and a bouquet of flowers--a good sign of things to come. The cottage was immaculate, as well as nicely stocked, tastefully decorated, and as quiet and comfortable as we could have wished. I stayed with my 12-year-old daughter, who was completely charmed by the sleeping loft (leaving me to enjoy the comfortable bed all by myself!). Amy was extremely friendly and inquired after us on several occasions. It was a great experience and we can't wait to go back!.
For 4 nights/days, I had a little piece of Portland Paradise staying here. Amy's guest cottage is lovely and I enjoyed my stay fully.
Very quiet, private and peaceful - but the bus line is just a few steps away for easy access to all the excitement of Portlandia!
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.
