A lovely clean private room with bath is available in our spacious Eco-Luxury home in a safe and fun neighborhood.
This home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood between Hawthorne Boulevard, Belmont Street, MT Tabor Park, and all the action Portland has to offer. My home is a new all-green construction (Earth Advantage) with hardwood floors and wool carpets without chemicals. It also has many clean air quality features for those with allergies, sensitivities to chemicals, or those wish to be in a clean and healthy place.
This stay has the benefits of hotel due to the size (3,000 sq feet) and standards of this home as well as the personalized benefits of a Bed and Breakfast type stay. You will not feel that you are imposing since this house was designed for the comfort of guests as well as ourselves. We are often told how lovely and quiet the house is due to great soundproofing.
Your room gets lots of morning light but don't worry there are also blinds to pretend that morning is not happening until later. Bit of a view of Mt Tabor.
This is a dedicated guest room with a Queen size bed, comfortable bed and bedding, side tables, full spectrum lights, desk, bureau and a roomy closet. The carpet is all wool without any chemicals. No VOC paint and finishes.
Your Bathroom has a separate powder room. Nice glass tile work, large vanity, and separate powder room.
Often , we only have one other guest but we have a social household and neighborhood that you can join in with or not. The house is large enough to have solitude or social depending on your choice. In the past, guests join in on dinners, puzzle solving, chicken feeding,board games, tea time or chatting; but privacy is respected as well.
Sunny and Private Yoga/dance/art studio space is available for your use.

Plenty of Parking and close to many bus lines.
The garage is filled with bikes. (of course!) Borrow the tandem ($25/day) to ride with a friend to Movie Madness or Slappy Cakes or the Bagdad Theater or Powells Books or... oh, you get the point!
There are travel books and lots of maps on Portland and Oregon.
Feeling over-whelmed by all the choices of things to do? Have a cup of tea and meditate with the fish. However you will first need to choose between 50 types of tea! Oh, the stress of it all!
Chickens in the chicken run. (This is Portland after all!) Feel free to say hi to Gals when you gather eggs for breakfast. Roll Call: Star, Midnight, Chicken and Giggles. Yes, Giggles looks like a turkey or a buzzard but she is truly a chicken, so don't hurt her feelings.
Self-Serve Continental Breakfast supplied of local ingredients for tea, toast, cereal, yoghurt, milk, rice dream, juice, fruit, oatmeal, and eggs. Often we will have special surprise treats available as well.
We are in one of the most walkable and bikable neighborhoods in the United States. This friendly and safe location is an easy walk to the hippest spots in town- theaters, cafes, food carts, pubs, parks, forest, playground, music venues, restaurants, museums, charming shops, stores, ice cream, bakeries, clubs, yoga/dance studios, groceries, too many to list. Near 6 bus routes, bike routes and flex car which can take you downtown or other neighborhoods in minutes. Plenty of parking on and off of street. However still quiet with the sounds of birdsong and wind in the trees.
Downtown is very easily bikable and busable or a 10 minute drive but remember the Eastside is where is it usually happens!
Easy drive to Mt Hood, Hood River, and the Coast. (The answer is always "About an hour!")

Nola's Eco-Pad is warm, clean and very convenient to the 15 and 14 bus lines.
Nola is an EXCELLENT host and made me feel at home. I'd stay here again and again!
I loved staying at Nola's. The house is beautiful and the room was so inviting and comfortable. It has the charm of an old house, yet is very new, clean and spacious. Nola is a wonderful host, full of information when needed. I loved my breakfast of local bread, marianberry jam, local yoghurt and Irish tea. It was a perfect location for my purpose. I love the walkable neighborhoods of SE Portland.
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed meeting Nola! She is a very gracious and helpful hostess. The house is beautiful and the bedroom and bathroom are fantastic. The location is excellent, quiet and convenient. I would definitely stay here again!
Wonderful host and house! :)
This is a beautiful home in a ideal location in the Hawthorne neighborhood. I found Nola & her daughter to be warm and welcoming--full of lively insights about Portland.
If I mention all the great things about Nola and her beautiful home, then others would be enticed to stay there and it might not be available next time I visit Portland!
Really, my brief 3 day stay was most welcoming and respectful, her home is as described, "eco-luxury" is an understatement, it's that clean, comfortable and modern "Portland Bungalow" done right, she has a real talent.
And......I won't reveal, the resident "guests" which are a charming surprise! I do hope it's available next visit, thanks Nola and Raven.
My stay in Nola´s house was very cool! I felt like a family member! The bedroom was nice and the bathroom too! I liked the designe in Nola´s house!
We had a great time staying with Nola. She gladly helped us figure out places to visit while in Portland. We also had a great time hanging with Nola and her 3 chickens. Her house was amazing and clean and she has such a friendly family. We would highly recommend staying with her!
My husband and I enjoyed Nola's Place in Portland! Nola's family is energetic and lively and they make you feel welcome instantly.
Her space is as described and offered us a good base to explore Portland and it's surroundings. We drove most places so are unable to comment on the public transportation suitability.
In all, a special place that Nola has created and is so kind as to open that up to other AirBnb folks :)
I loved staying with Nola! I felt welcomed and at home from the moment I arrived. The house is gorgeous and exceptionally clean. The neighborhood might just be the best in Portland for foodies. And Nola's coffee/food/things to do recommendations were exceptional. This is THE perfect home if you're looking for an authentic Portland stay. I can't wait to come back!
