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!
Amy's cottage is absolutely lovely! It is the perfect getaway spot. I loved both how close it was to downtown (5 minutes drive) and yet how private and secluded it was. They have thought of everything and our stay there was very comfortable. Amy is warm and friendly and made us feel welcome right away. I like the fact that the neighbourhood is next to a green area and its very treed and lush and yet in no time at all you can be at one of the very many excellent pubs or restaurants nearby.
This is a truly fantastic cottage, with just the right location and amenities for our trip. We came out to Portland to look for housing and this is a very short trip to the west side, about 5 or 10 minutes. It is also in a beautiful area with lovely trees, flowers, that is just gorgeous. There were even some flowers waiting for us inside when we arrived.
The cottage has all the amenities that we could want for a week-long trip with nice bathroom with towels and shampoo, washer and dryer, and a nice kitchen with a comfortable seating area. The cottage is located in Amy and her husband's backyard, and the windows facing the house are frosted for privacy while all the rest have window shades if you feel that you need more privacy. However, the cottage has so much light that it is lovely, and we liked to leave the shades open because sometimes Stubbs their dog was running around in the yard and he was pretty adorable.
We greatly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the great hospitality! Thank you so much!
Amy is an incredible host. She is warm, welcoming and her listing was perfect. Her listing was extremely clean, comfortable and in a great location. I will be sure to stay with Amy next time I am in Portland.
