About this listing
Cozy, quiet room with shared bath down the hall (European style). Room has it's own sink and pantry with small fridge & microwave. Nice, fully equipped kitchen to share off living room with fireplace. Rustic balcony in the trees.
Studio C is a cozy and quiet, private studio in a charming and clean 1908 building that was originally a boarding house. This room has a queen bed and is on the top floor (second story of the building) It is perfect for the solo traveler or a nice couple. This quaint, high ceiling studio has a sink in the room, as well as a microwave & small fridge in the adjoining pantry. The kitchen & living room are shared with the other guests and the bath is down the wide, wood floor hallway. Feel free to interact with the other travelers or you can stay to yourself and no one will interrupt you at all. This is not a party house, it's great for a personal retreat, a business trip, or as base from which to explore the city. There is a lovely balcony in the trees to enjoy, overlooking the sidewalk and urban bike traffic. Have your coffee and relax in the tree tops.
I'd love to have you come and stay. Sheila
PLEASE NOTE: A $25 Cleaning fee to be left in envelope in room at check out. Thank you so much!
There is bike storage in the sidewalk level basement, there's a key on a hook in your room. There is a washer & dryer to use for a small fee ($1.50 ea). Street parking available right out front. If you need extra storage just let me know as there is room in the attic or over at my house down the street if you are moving here.
Interaction with Guests
I would never knock on your door or bother you in anyway during your stay but I may see you in the common areas as I come to spruce up things. If you do ever need me I'm just a phone call or text away and I live just down the street.
The WalkUps are in the Buckman neighborhood in Inner Southeast Portland. It's just minutes to walk to the river that leads downtown. Or if you feel a bit ambitious you can walk to the shops/bars/restaurants on SE 28th Ave or Hawthorne & Belmont Streets. This is an artistic neighborhood with lots of trees & bicycles and people buzzing. Coffee shops, wine bars, food carts, vintage stores, and indie movie houses. I think it's the best neighborhood in Portland.
The #15 bus is just down on the corner of 16th & SE Morrison and it takes you over the bridge to downtown in minutes or the Northwest Portland if you just stay on it thru downtown.
Cabs are cheap here and great if it's raining. Radio cab is 503.227.1212, just call a bit ahead of pick up.
There's a new street car down on Stark and Grand Avenue (6 blocks) that will take you to the Oregon Convention Center and then to downtown, it's pretty nice. Bike commuting is also very good here, just be sure to bring your helmet and your lights as you can be ticketed if you have no lights.
Other Things to Note
