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.
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!
Unique, Spartan, mountain side cottage. Bring your walking cane if you have difficulties with balancing, some steps, plus uneven driveway in dark. Left early for health reasons and forfeited deposit.
What a magical place! It is nestled in a very hilly, charming neighborhood just 2 miles from Pearl District. The place is beautiful, tranquil and cozy -- I thought the pictures did not do it justice. We cooked breakfast every morning and the full fridge was great for all of our leftovers from dining out.
Amy was a very accommodating host. She was a concierge before I even arrived asking me if I needed restaurant recommendations or things to do. She responded quickly and greeted us upon arrival.
My only regret was that I had to leave. We really enjoyed the Japanese Garden (so peaceful), Powell’s Book Store and high tea at the Heathman Hotel. I pointed out to the waiter it was 50 Shades of Tea and he laughed! I wish we had more than a few days in Portland. It is a lovely city..and this is their “off” season!
This is the second time my husband and I have stayed in this charming cottage. We absolutely loved our time here. We love the setting--lots of trees--and the closeness to Forest Park for hikes. Downtown is also just a hop, skip, and a jump away.
I absolutely loved staying here. In fact, I almost didn't want to write a review because I want to come back and don't want the place all booked up! The cottage is simply charming. I am a person who loves trees and the outdoors and the setting of the cottage was so lovely, and Forest Park was a very accessible walk from the house. Amy was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. She was also open to my suggestion to add a towel holder in the bathroom and went out immediately and bought one and installed it. Likewise, she purchased two night lights. Stubbs the dog is darling. He will come to the living room window and peek in and will greet you as you come and go.
Amy and Chris are thoughtful and accommodating hosts - we are so pleased we got a chance to know them. We enjoyed our stay so much we decided to stay an additional month. The location is a beautiful and conveniently located just a 5 minute drive from the best stretch of shopping and restaurants that down-town Portland has to offer. The guest house is warm, cozy and had everything we needed to make it a home away from home. The kitchen offers a full size gas oven, fridge, washer and dryer with plenty of counter space for cooking. The queen size bed was very comfortable and the linens are soft as can be. The space was just perfect for the two of us.
Another amazing stay in this beautiful guest cottage! Smooth communication, lovely surroundings, well-stocked kitchen, and country-in-the-city location. This host and space are what AirBnB is all about! Thank you, Amy and Chris!
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.
