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.

Exactly as it appeared. Neat, clean, quiet convenient, a really nice place to stay in Portlandia. Janie and Ginnie have the perfect balance of friendly and attentive without being at all intrusive. Highly recommended.
Fantastic property! Great location close to the Mississippi district--plenty of fabulous dining and shopping options within easy walking distance. The space was comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and tons of local information that made some of our trips and excursions much easier. Such kind and attentive hosts. Thank you for a lovely stay!
Janie and Ginnie provided a terrific space where we felt right at home. The unit was described pretty accurately. It is a basement in-law suite, with its own private entrance on the back side of the main house. The garden was beautiful and the location was great for foodies like us. They left us clear instructions inside the home and even recommendations for local spots in the Mississippi District. We utilized the list heavily and went to several of those places. The neighborhood was very walkable. And a cheap uber ride to other cool neighborhoods, we didn't even have a car while we were there.
Could not have picked a better place to stay. Janie and Ginnie were wonderful hosts. The times we interacted made us feel welcome, but they were never intrusive. The neighborhood was exactly what we had wanted. It was easy to get there on the light rail and bus from PDX. Mississippi St. was close by with restaurants, shopping, and avibrant night life. The apartment was private and had everything we needed. We were able to make salads from the on premises garden. And BONUS: they have a border collie. I
The Farm was a perfect place to stay while I was in town for a friend's wedding. The place itself is comfortable and large -- great kitchen, comfy bed. The yard is especially beautiful, very Secret Garden. I didn't have a chance to meet Janie and Ginnie (they were out of town) but it was easy to locate and get into the space. The Farm is perfectly situated, a short walk from my favorite local grocery store, New Seasons, as well as some wonderful restaurants and cafes. I'd recommend this spot to anybody.
We had a terrific time in Portland. The place is wonderful. We will have to come back and spend more time there. We thoroughly enjoyed the garden - the weather was hot when we got there and we enjoyed sitting outside in the cool of the evening. The house is located well.
We had a great experience with this stay. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It really felt like we were coming home. The space was so private! You can relax, put your feet up, watch some Netflix, and take it easy after a long day of having fun in Portland.
Janie and Ginnie were great about having ideas for things to do, based on your interests. There were tons of magazines and menus from their favorite places. It was also great to have the kitchen. We ended up cooking dinner and breakfast a few mornings.
Having the Mississippi/Williams areas close was also a plus. Great areas for food, drink, and doing a little shopping. It really is just a couple blocks to the bus stop, which can get you downtown.
Ultimately, we had a really nice stay here, and hope to use the apartment next time we go to Portland. Which hopefully is soon, we fell in love with it!!

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.
