The space

If you are an Urban Farming pioneer, enthusiast, or gonna-be, a Cultural warrior, jammer, or creator or perhaps a Thinker, Poet, Artist or Dreamer. Then GREAT! We want to meet you and share the wonders of how being connected to one's food creates community, beauty, healing and security. We can't wait to meet you!!!

However, we are not a hotel with air conditioning, nor are we a Bed & Breakfast with doilies and syrup-ey sweet hospitality. We are a clean simple Farm community and we love meeting warm, open and creative people. If this all sounds fine to you then this might be a really good fit and we look forward to hosting you. If not, you might be happier somewhere else.

The Neighborhood
Tierra Soul is located in the fun and hip Mississippi Avenue Historic District ~ a couple blocks from boutiques and coffee shops, restaurants and parks. We are a 5 minute drive, and 10 minute MAX ride from downtown and a 5 minute drive, or 30 min. walk, to the Alberta Arts District. We are 3 blocks from a MAX station and bus stop and also have bikes available for your pedaling pleasure!

Check out the TriMet trip planner to arrange your travels to and from the airport or other destination.

The Farmhouse:
Large house surrounded by magical urban farm (sometimes we call it an un-farm), Founded by Mama and Papa Arias and their two little ones in Spring 2010. Since then Tierra Soul has evolved into community endeavor. We have had a host of interns and WWOOFers. Together we have tended dairy and fiber goats, ducks (including the famous Hettie Quackers) and chickens for eggs and meat, honey bees and an expanding perennial fruit, flower, herb and vegetable garden. Join us for a warm and fun time whether or not you have children. House has lots of communal space to enjoy with a front porch, out-door fire pit, and piano! We also have WIFI and a kitchen available for light guest use during non-quiet hours.

If you are traveling with a small child, let us know and we can set up the wooden crib for your little one. If you do come with children, please respect our quiet hours and supervise them at all times. Also, sick kids are welcome but running a guesthouse exposes us to more foreign colds than we can handle and still be good caretakers. We ask that you keep sick kiddos contained while in common areas especially with other children.

LATE CHECK-INS are fine just let us know.

Meals are not included (most of our guests are eager to have a taste of Portland's culinary richness so, we don't want you to feel like your missing out). Enjoy our complimentary coffee and tea bar! Once you book, ask about our Sunday Brunch availability!

QUIET HOURS: (9pm -7am) We have guests from all over the world crossing time zones, sleeping children and a deep respect for the rhythm of the sun. Our family does rise early for farm chores so don't be surprised if you hear us, and the animals, even earlier.

DOG POLICY: If you have a dog you are traveling with please contact us before booking. Dogs are to be supervised at all times and can't be left in the room when you leave. The dog must be on a leash when in the house and yard. Please respect our gardens and and and pick up after your dog. $20 a night extra.

We look forward to welcoming you!

This is a great house and very warm and friendly. Caitlin gave great recommendations on local sights. The goats and chickens really added a nice touch to the urban farm experience.

This is a really nice, clean, welcoming place with a comfortable bed. Interesting house--lots of fun stuff to look at on the shelves and walls. Funny cats. Low impact chickens and sheep in the back yard.

Tierra Soul is a beautiful place. Warm. Homey. I felt right at home, and very much enjoyed my stay. The #4 bus is right around the corner, runs often, and takes about 15 minutes to get downtown. Great place.

Tierra Soul is a very magical spot -- comfy and peaceful yet one block away from all the rad goodness of Mississippi Avenue! We had an amazing experience and would highly recommend it for travelers looking for something lovely off the beaten path.
