2. We are in a residential area and are highly conscious of our street presence. Therefore we ask that our guests park directly in front of our home, facing in the line of traffic, and leaving room for a second vehicle.

3. Our facilities are designed for limited numbers of people, and the City of Portland does not permit us holding events here. That said, from time to time our guests do have visitors who do not stay overnight and who are not part of the official party. We do ask, though, that guests let us know prior to booking what if any plans they might have with regard to friends and family joining them here.

4. The Johnson House is registered with the City of Portland as a homestay and fully compliant with the City's short-term lodging taxing system. Tax ID number available upon request.

Mainly we just ask that you enjoy yourself, but here are a few more particulars:

We are a smoke free home, inside and out.

We ask guests to not use candles or other open flames of any type.

All are welcome here although since we are a family neighborhood we cannot host those traveling by motorcycle or motor homes and campers.

Additionally, we offer street parking only and our street is of average city width. If you have an expensive car that you might worry about, we suggest you consider other accommodations.

There are three well groomed cats so we cannot accommodate those with allergies. And yes, we do accept pets. Our pet guest fee is $65 which is due in cash at check in.

Jean is a sweetheart! Auntie's hideaway is super cozy and quiet in a residential area of NE with quick access to popular areas of NE & SE by car or public transit. Also especially great if you have a pup and need a place that allows them to stay. Would definitely stay again!

Auntie's Hideaway was perfectly cozy and comfortable. The cool basement was especially nice as we visited on a hot weekend. Would definitely stay here again!

Auntie's Hideaway was just perfect for our needs while we were having our wood floors refinished. The location is great and surrounded by friendly neighbors, with Annie's (delicious) Donuts very close by. Jean is a super host who is happy to provide information about what to see and do in the area. Her cats and dog were so cute! The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom is just beautiful. The photos and history that are displayed throughout the apartment make it really unique. We felt like we knew Auntie Kirsten by the time we left. Oh and we loved being able to sign our names on the wall in the stairwell! We definitely recommend Auntie's Hideaway!

We recently made a trip to visit family in Portland. Staying at Auntie's Hideaway made for an enjoyable trip. It was so nice to have a quite place to relax in after running around with our grand children all day. This downstairs unit was clean and comfortable. We would stay again when visiting Portland.

I stayed at Auntie's Hideaway with a friend for 4 days and it was perfect for everything we wanted to do. Jean was a great host. I had to check in late at night because of my flight but Jean was very accommodating and left clear instructions on how to get into the house. The house itself was so unique and filled with historical memorabilia that gave us something to do or read everytime we returned from our excursions. Location-wise, it was a 10-15 a minute drive to City Center by car and a 30 minute commute by train. The house is also very close to popular convenient stores and delicious food/coffee restaurants. The only negative thing I can think of is that you can definitely hear the cats scurrying around upstairs in the morning but it only lasts for about 30 minutes and my friend and I woke up early everyday so it never bothered our sleep. I would definitely recommend staying here and hope to see Jean and her cats again!
