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.

Two kind ladies with a gorgeous unique property close to everything you can need or desire. My sister and I stayed for 6 nights at their Farm in the City. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The proximity to the Mississippi ave restaurants and shops was so easy, as well as the stores on Williams. A perfect place for any first timers to PDX or a frequent visitor. We were entirely on foot and made due quite well. We will be looking forward to another visit and stay there in the future.
We had an amazing time at Janie and Ginnie's beautiful home the self contained flat was a real home from home and had everything you need including great recommendations for places to eat ! Omg the Thai food ! It was a perfect base to explore a lovely city .. We have both fallen in love with Portland I can't recommend it any higher . Lovely neighbourhood lovely flat great hosts.. A Big thank you!
Very easy to locate, the directions to initially get into the apartment were very easy. The neighborhood is great, within a 5 minute walk you are in a great food laden boulevard. We bumped into Janie & Ginnie once during our stay and provided some directions and were easy going. I would defiantly stay there again.
Janie and Ginnie are incredible hosts! They graciously shared their expert knowledge of the area and popular hiking trails. The property is exactly as described and there were zero surprises. They were accommodating with my request to checkin early. The space is well taken care of and maintained. It was truly a joy to experience Portland with the farmhouse serving as home base.
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.

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.
