Interaction with Guests
We hope to meet you during your stay!
Come hang out at our guest house and wander Alberta Street...it's a cornucopia of funky and independent shops, galleries, bars & restaurants. We've got world famous pie, 5 kinds of Thai, an amazing tea shop, vegan bakery, co-op and guitar shop within a few blocks. Catch a flick at the Kennedy School or live music at the Alberta Street Pub or Alberta Rose Theater.
Every Last Thursday, we have a freewheeling art festival on the street. Last Thursday is a rich tradition where it's free to vend and attend. You'll see washboard bands, teen violinists, Native American drumming circles, fab art and funky attire right outside our front door!
We are on several major bus lines and one block from a designated biking boulevard. By car we are 10 minutes from the airport, Lloyd Center Mall, Convention Center and Light Rail and less than 15 minutes to downtown Portland.

The Alberta Inn was perfect for my needs. It was Affordable, set in a great location, and comfortable. Alberta itself is a great neighborhood (go checkout Batista coffee across the street!) The rest of the city is also really easy to access through close by bus routes.
The bunking inn alberta arts is a very cozy and nice place, i spent a couple of night in a relaxing and quite mood! The place is very clean and fully furnished for cooking. The neighborhood is awesome, i think one of the best in Portland, with artistic spot, eco-green oriented and with interesting pub and social life in the night. Even if not in downtown, it is linked by bus with short trip. Though you don't see Rochelle, she's friendly and helpful: if you ask something she answers soon. Of sure a good place to stay!
As my first AirBnB experience, I can truthfully say that Rochelle, Phoenix, the house guests and kitties were all delightful, kind, and friendly to me. Rochelle made me feel right at home and I did not lack for anything while I was there. Room accommodations were clean and comfortable, and the whole house has a really lovely eclectic vibe.
This is my second time staying at Rochelle's place so I pretty much knew what to expect. This time, I brought 5 of my friends with me for a weekend in Portland. Rochelle arranged for us to stay all in one room with the bed bunks, which was perfect for us. My friends got there before I did, and I was informed how the caretaker was very helpful and accommodating. The location of the place is perfect as it is in one of the most interesting and fun streets in Portland to explore. The place was clean, and very cozy. Overall we had a great stay and the host was very accommodating. I would definitely come back again!
Lots of communication, when we needed it.
Upgraded our accommodations to meet our specific needs.
Neighborhood was delightful - eateries, healthy grocery store, cycling center, bookstore... what else is there?
The room was exactly as described, and it is in a great location. There are restaurants and shops within a few blocks. I was able to find parking half a block away.
I can definitely recommend this home to any traveler looking for a casual place to stay. I will be back.

About the Host, Rochelle
“Take only memories, leave only footprints.” – Chief Seattle
I've lived all over Portland, but once I landed in the Alberta Arts district that was it. Even in a city known for 'different', Alberta pushed the free- and forward-thinking envelope just a little bit further.
I've worn a lot of different hats over the years, but right now I'm drawn to the intersection where art, activism and the cooperative movement meet. I think the Alberta neighborhood is a great template where we might develop and model sustainable local urban living--I'd love to see food planted up and down the alleys, Alberta Street turned into a permanent walking/shopping boulevard. Cottage industry coops of all stripes, art everywhere!
I'm happy to open our house to the fabulous folk who find their way to us. What's your passion?
