About this listing
Our cozy cabin is your perfect hotel alternative in this amazing Portland neighborhood. New for Summer 2015: Air Conditioning and HBO!!!
in the heart of the concordia neighborhood, quietly tucked away in a grove of doug firs, just blocks from all the adorable shops and restaurants on alberta street, portland's "restaurant row" on 30th and killingsworth, the kennedy school, new seasons and alberta park, this is the perfect hotel alternative. the cabin is a newly renovated guest house with a queen sized bed, full bathroom with tub, kitchenette sun deck with table, chairs and weber bbq, and outdoor soaking tub. wireless internet, easy free parking, and reasonable bike rental available in the neighborhood. there is a tv with a roku box (netflix, hbogo), dvd player, and a great library of movies to watch. we will provide local coffee for you to prepare your first morning if you wish. the kitchen has everything you need should you wish to cook - fridge, stovetop, large toaster oven, all cookware and dishware. and of course we will provide towels and some bath products.
*please note that our sweet cat maximoose roams the yard occasionally, but does not go in the cabin so far as we know!*
is the kennedy school booked? too noisy? oh, you want the option to make your own food? want to soak in your own private hot tub? the concordia cabin is for you!
the hot tub is exclusively for your private
use while you are our guests here. please note that it does not have jets, if that is important to you!
Interaction with Guests
we like to give our guests their privacy, but are always happy to meet and give recommendations and exchange stories. in the warmer months, we often eat outside on our deck so we are more likely to run into you. if we have summer gatherings, our guests are always invited to join if they like!

The cabin was very cute, just like in the pictures! Comfy bed and great location. We did have some trouble with ants, so just be wary of leaving food out. Otherwise it was great!
We enjoyed staying at the cabin. We met Rachel and Joe both briefly and they were friendly. Check in was a breeze. Although we used the hot tub two of three nights and enjoyed it, none of the jets worked. The hot tub was one of the reasons we booked this place but the great location of the cabin made up for it. We enjoyed being right by the Alberta Arts District where there are more coffee shops on a block than the entire neighborhood I live in.
We had a lovely stay at Rachel & Joe's. All amenities needed were provided. Quiet, beautiful neighborhood to explore and walking distance to excellent restaurants, coffee, libations, local artisan shops and more. Recommended!
This cabin was so cute! Everything was neat and clean. The description of the cabin was completely accurate, sunny and Rachel and Joe gave us lots of privacy. They were very accommodating hosts, will definitely consider staying there next time I'm in Portland.
Rachel and Joe were very good hosts- unobtrusive but very friendly. The home was super cute and located in a "real" Portland neighborhood- which actually means REAL cool and fun. Great bars and restaurants. The cabin was so much more relaxing than a hotel would have been. We had outdoor space, coffee and a fridge, DVD collection and a smoking HOT jacuzzi. Awesome!
The hosts were very friendly and the location was great. We were able to walk to a lot of good restaurants and bars (Alberta Street etc). The size was also good for my girlfriend and I.
All of those things were cool but there were two things that were not good about our stay here. One was that there were a lot of ants in the unit. Floor, celling, window sills, sink, walls...ants.
The other issue was that the sheets and especially the towels seemed like they were not washed with proper detergent. The linens had a musty-ness to them. After using the towels to dry off, our face, hands, and bodies smelled unpleasantly moldy.
So, great hosts, great location, cozy guest house, but just a few things they can easily fix.
Great neighborhood! Very friendly host. Comfortable small space. Enjoyed our time.
