Featured in New York Magazine and named one of the BEST GUESTHOUSEs IN PDX by Portland Monthly!

New York Magazine urges visitors to Portland to "shack up" at the Pocket House, calling it one of three "places to stay" in the city. The Pocket House was also named to AirBnB's Top Picks and Eco-Friendly Picks lists.

Just blocks from Portland, Oregon’s Historic Mississippi neighborhood and the charming Alberta Arts District, the Pocket House is a stylish and eco-friendly alternative to the downtown hotel or airport inn.

This 1BD/1BA guesthouse sleeps 4, is fully furnished, close to the city center and a perfect home base for your stay in Portland as well as day trips to the coast, wine country, the Columbia Gorge or the Cascade Mountains. If you don’t want to drive, you can walk, bike or take public transportation to Portland’s best shops, restaurants, cafes, parks and more.

The Pocket House is a new structure (2010) designed by Jason Swift and Wendy Turner of Swift Architecture that beautifully blends modern Scandinavian aesthetic with sustainable Pacific Northwest sensibility. The result is an inviting 435 square-foot space, one bedroom home with a fully functional kitchenette, separate sleeping loft and a private garden space.

Stay at the Pocket House and enjoy an affordable and authentic Portland experience.

This is a dog-friendly vacation rental and we provide dog towels, a dog bed and some doggie snacks.

House Rules

First off, we hope that you will have a relaxing and enjoyable stay. In fact, we hope the Pocket House feels like home for you. Having said that, we have a few rules.
- Please do not smoke in the house or on the property.
- Please respect quiet hours of 10pm - 7am as we are close to neighbors.
- Use the washer/dryer as you need, but we'd prefer you wait until there is a full load to preserve water and energy.
- Let us know if you're interested in some fresh, organic herbs/veggies/fruit and we can open up our side yard for you to pick a little something.
- Please note, there is a $40/dog/visit fee. We love dogs and we love it when guests want to bring their dogs. But, please do not leave pooches unattended under any circumstances. We've had some problems with barking and scratching.
