Why Inn Alberta Arts? Because when you're here, it's your home!
Welcome! This is a shared room with 1 or 2 others, though private accommodation may be possible. Please ask!
If this bed is booked on the day you want to stay, one of our other beds may be available, so feel free to email us!
Accommodation: Mixed gender room (ask about single gender option) in the Alberta Arts District--the center of all that's weird and wonderful about Portland.
Since we are available for month + stays and want our home to feel like home to you while you're here, it's important we're a fit for each other. Please share some details about yourself and your interests/endeavors when you inquire about staying.
Use of all common areas, including kitchen, living & dining rooms, front porch.
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.
Welcome! Be mindful that you may be sharing the room with others and treat them with respect. Two friendly indoor/outdoor cats live here. We ask you to keep the door to your room shut so they don't enter your room, though please enjoy them in the common areas. We like to observe fairly quiet hours after 10 pm or so (11-12 on weekends) and before 8 am. During your stay, let us know if you have any special needs and we will do our best to accommodate them!
My stay was wonderful, the room was clean and the bathroom nice accessible and easy. The location is perfect very close to all public transportation and great restaurants
Great place to stay. House and rooms etc. were all clean and comfortable. Rochelle was always prompt and helpful in answering any questions during my stay. Great place, great value, would stay again.
Very nice, clean, simple, friendly and convenient. Lots of maps and books available to browse in the living room as well.
We had a great time staying at Rochelle's place in Portland. The room was clean and comfortable. The house was located right in the middle of the Alberta arts area so, it was very convenient to restaurants and bars. Also public transport in the city is easy.
Rochelle's place was very conveniently located with bus stops to downtown half a block away. Home quiet, clean, and neighborhood was cute when i come back to Portland i would definitely stay again!
Very nice, clean and comfortable place. I haven't seen the owner. I liked the location in Alberta neighborhood.

I've lived all over Portland, but after planting roots in the Alberta Arts district a nearly a decade ago, I can't imagine living anywhere else. Even in a city known for 'different', Alberta pushes the free- and forward-thinking envelope just a little bit further.
Our house is in a great spot--so close to fab food, art, yoga, and shopping for all budgets. (Don't forget to stop off for a slice of Random Order pie!) We've got our own local bike rental and public transportation options within 1 to 2 blocks.
Portland is rich in beautiful natural spots and diverse cultural offerings.Must visits on my list include the Gorge waterfalls and Powells books - the ultimate planetary bookstore (at least in this galaxy).
I think one of the best parts of traveling is feeling comfortable wherever you land. When I'm on the road, I steer toward cheerful, friendly spots with just the right mix of privacy and community. Living in England cemented my fondness for guest houses. Those happy stays in cozy homes primed me to seek out similar lodgings when I travel.
I love being able to open our house to the fabulous folk who find their way to us. I look forward to meeting you and hearing some of your stories. Welcome!
