About this listing
When you're here, it's your home!
Welcome! This is a shared room with 1 to 3 others. Private rooms runs $800/month and may be available during your stay. Please ask!
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, so we do ask that you share some details about yourself (photo please) and your interests/endeavors when you inquire about staying.
Also, while you aren't required to interact with our cats, we do at a minimum encourage guests who are cat-positive. Thanks!
Guests may make use of the common areas--including front porch, sitting room and kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
Residents tend to spontaneously self-organize house meals, movie nights and outings from time to time for those who want to participate. Sometimes the house is very quiet and at other times lively and most guests seem to like the variety.
Come hang out at our guest house and wander Alberta (URL HIDDEN) 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.
Other Things to Note
Artists, activists and folks working for a better world especially encouraged!
Welcome! Be mindful that you may be sharing the room with others and treat them with respect. Two friendly indoor/outdoor cats live here, though we ask you to keep the door to your room shut so they don't enter the bedrooms. Feel free to 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. Also we request that you do not cook beef in the house. During your stay, let us know if you have any special needs and we will do our best to accommodate them!
