Come experience a signature Portland neighborhood!
Guests may make use of the common areas--including front porch, sitting room and kitchen.
The Alberta Arts District is the center of all that's weird and wonderful about Portland. 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.
Easy check in! When you book your room, the house manual will have all the details regarding your stay. Because it's a guest house, you can have as much or as little interaction with the host and other guests as you desire. Kitchen is available for your use. Let me know if you have any special needs. At this time we are keeping the house pet free, as many travelers have allergies. Welcome!
Excellent location! Near public transportation and in the heart of Alberta Arts District. Rochelle was easy to communicate with. A must when you visit PDX.
Communication with Rochelle was easy and check in/out was really convenient. The bed was comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised with the excellent location! It is located right on Alberta in the Alberta Arts District. Within minutes you can stroll to delicious local eateries (check out the Salt and Straw for awesome ice cream) and great specialty stores. If you are lucky, you will have a great spot for the Last Thursday street fair on Alberta, which is a lot of fun.
The only things that could have been better was that no matter how many times I tried my computer could not connect to the wifi and the fan in the room would only blow hot air or shut off after a few minutes. Besides that, it was a great stay and I would stay again in this excellent location.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
the good- the location is great. there is alot of action just outside the hostel. the living area is comfortable. rochelle was quick to answer any queries i had.
the bad- i was able to hear people talking in the next room over, but i was still able to get a good night's sleep!
I had a great stay here. All was clean, comfortable and cozy. Friendly people and all I needed. Fabulous neighborhood with everything you need close by. Rochelle and Millicent made sure I was happy and had all I needed. A great base from which to visit Portland or just hang in a cool part of it.
This is not your typical experience. The Inn is very hands off and there is not really any interaction with the actual host. Which for me was good, I was in transition between apt's and really did not need to interact with anyone. If you are a single trying to find a place to meet someone I don't really know if this is the place to do that. I could see it being a great place if you are traveling in a pair or a small group. The location is really, really great right on Alberta by a bunch of amazing coffee shops and places to eat. Overall I would say that my experience was just what I needed. The price is decent and I think you get an experience worth what you pay.

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!
