This urban-country, garden apartment is smack-dab between historic Mississippi Avenue and Williams Ave, where you are blocks away from some of Portland's best restaurants, food carts, bars and music venues. Take the winding path around the house, past the chicken coop and "farm" to the apartment patio. Think French country get-away, only you are in Portlandia.
You can hop on two wheels, the bus or the Max train and be downtown in 10 minutes. The bus line is 2 blocks from the apartment and the Max is less than a mile from the apartment.
Farm in the City has a large master bedroom, full eat-in kitchen, bathroom with a shower, small livingroom with a flat screen tv and a private patio with a weber grill. Character abounds in this sweet get-away - exposed beams and bricks with a clean, simple aesthetic. Wifi, Netflix and street parking.
Perhaps the reviews say it best, our guests love the apartment and the neighborhood. Come and live like a local!
The coolest neighborhood in Portland. Williams and Mississippi Aves. are chocked full of award winning restaurants and indie shops & boutiques.
It has the quintessential Portlandia vibe that Portland is known for and loved.
We are 2 blocks from the bus stop that takes you right into downtown. We are a 10 minute walk to the nearest MAX (light rail) station. There are bike rental places in the neighborhood, and by bike, it's a 10-15 minute ride to the Pearl district and downtown.

This place was great. It's practically a whole apartment. We had no issues with our stay. Hosts were excellent and communicative. We got in late a few nights, and they accommodated us. Wish we could have stayed longer. Very clean and welcoming decor. Super comfortable furnishings. Their dog is super sweet! The location is super convenient. Lot's of good food around.
Spacious and well furnished apartment in a perfect location to experience Portland life. From this location you can walk around and see beautiful Portland scenery, eat out at a range of amazing and diverse places, and go to trendy bars. If you feel like having a quiet night and cooking at home and watching something on Netflix, this apartment is also perfect for that. Hosts were welcoming and thoughtful, giving us a good recommendation of a place to visit but also plenty of space. I couldn't more highly recommend this place.
We had such a wonderful time! This was such a charming place and the perfect location! Thanks for being so friendly and great.
I enjoyed staying at Janie and Ginnie's apartment. The apartment was comfortable and spacious, and was set up very well with plenty of information on things to do in Portland and how to get around. The surrounding neighborhood has a lot to offer, as well. It was very easy to communicate with Janie and Ginnie and I would recommend staying with them if you need a place in Portland!
The Farm in the City is a delightful, private oasis - though given the charming neighborhood, a respite was hardly needed. Close to everything, this lovely apartment is well-appointed with everything needed to relax after exploring Portland's Mississippi District. The hosts thoughtfully provide plenty of information about the neighborhood and the surrounding area as well as many amenities to ensure guests are comfortable in the apartment. The charming decor, featuring fun vintage accessories and terrific artwork, really makes the interior space warm and inviting, while clever landscaping provides privacy in the lush garden setting. We can't wait to come back!
The space was really comfortable and well-kept. The yard was gorgeous and the hosts, Janie & Ginnie, were fantastic. The location could not have been better, easily walkable to many great parts of the city and public transport wasn't more than a 10 minute walk away. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to anyone visiting.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the Farm in the City! The apartment was comfortable and cozy and had everything we needed - even an umbrella and rain jacket to get us through an unexpected downpour. We were greeted warmly by Janie and Ginnie and their sweet dog, Sadie.

About the Host, Janie And Ginnie
My partner Ginnie and I have lived in Portland for over 20 years and love all that Portland and the Northwest has to offer. We both love the outdoors - whether it's skiing, sailing, hiking, biking or gardening, you can usually find us outside with our border collie, Sadie.
We are so fortunate to have such rich bounty in this part of the country- the most amazing local produce, award winning wines, the freshest seafood, it's a foodie's paradise! We would love to share our favorite spots, both in Portland and on the Oregon Coast.
When we are not adventuring around the Northwest, we love to travel to experience other cultures and beautiful parts of the world.
