The Space

We've dubbed our 360 sq ft backyard cottage Grandpa's Bunkhouse since it really was our grandfather's. Expect pride of ownership from 3 generations.

We have 2 studios here at The Johnson House, Grandpa's being our most private and spacious. If you are a more budget conscious traveler you might check out our daylight studio, Auntie's Hideaway. Either way, please see our reviews from 7 happy years hosting travelers.

Guest Access

Common areas include the back, side, and front patios complete with fountain, dining table, LL Bean hammock, lounger, and chairs.

If you need laundry services, we can point you to a great laundromat sandwiched between a cornmeal crust pizza parlor and a colorful Cuban restaurant where the desserts delight.

Interaction with Guests

Your host, Jean Johnson, is a retired
American historian, bicyclist, and 4-season organic gardener. She also studies dance: ballet, salsa, Argentine tango.

Jean very much enjoys welcoming guests to The Johnson House and helping them get oriented to her neighborhood and city.

The Neighborhood

Ours is a neighborhood just off Noodle Flat in NE Portland. Pho Van is around the corner where we in the neighborhood go, and Thien Hong is just blocks away and where Portland's Vietnamese community goes for pepper salted squid. Otto's Wood Fired Pizzeria is near by as well, and a real asset to our Rose Way District.

There is free street parking, room for 2 vehicles . Our neighbors are friendly--join our impromptu happy hours during summers when we gather to watch to the kids play--and it's safe to walk about at night here.

Getting Around

Sandy Boulevard, Portland's 4 lane diagonal artery, is 2 blocks away and gives guests 10 minute access to the airport, 20 minutes to downtown, and 15 minutes to several of Portland's unique neighborhood destinations.

Other Things to Note

We're artists at heart here, and this home has been in our family for 3 generations. Expect nicely appointed historic and cultural touches, accompanied by quality furnishings and linens. What we do, we try to do right--going the extra mile with a little finesse.

Feline Alert: We have 3 indoor/outdoor cats. They go into the studios on fairly often so we cannot host anyone with allergies.

We do not offer weekly or monthly rates during the high summer season
