  • I enjoyed my stay with Bruce - it was my first stop in Portland and the location was great. Walking distance to food trucks, whole foods, a microbrewery and more. The house was gorgeous as you can see from the photos with an amazing gourmet kitchen and the shared bathroom was beautiful too.
    Bruce was incredibly accommodating, especially fitting me in at the last minute due to a cancelled booking. He was even so kind as to give me a lift to my next accommodation which was just down the road. I spent a lot of time talking with him and his daughter who was also super nice and a wealth of information - she made me feel very welcome and at ease as well.

    The only down side was that I was in Portland during some very warm weather and in the afternoon the room was a little bit warm as the sun hits the front of the house - but once the sun went down it was very comfortable.

    Bruce, thank you so much for welcoming me to Portland and making a very stressful situation a breeze!

  • Our room was very comfortable. Comfort of bed is always top concern and we were most pleased. Bruce made everything available to us for breakfast and we enjoyed a nice visit with him. His home is gorgeous and he is justifiably proud of the work he has done. We would happily stay with him again.

  • The room is very clean. The location is very convenient. The common area is also very nice. I like the kitchen very much. Bruce is very friendly too.

  • We visited the Oregon area to kiteboard in Hood River which is a beautiful place. Staying at Bruce's was a blessing. It is a lovely house in a perfect location for exploring Portland or staying close to the airport (only 15 min away). I loved his handiwork as well and a beautiful kitchen.

  • Bruce is a welcoming host, and his place is spacious, well-decorated, and comfortable. I was attending a conference at the convention center, which was a convenient thirty minute trip (15 each for walking and riding) on the local light rail. The neighborhood is pleasant -- mostly low density residential zoning but plenty of different businesses to keep you from feeling like you've landed in a suburban wasteland. There was enough noise isolation and Bruce is attentive enough with cleaning to make sharing an upstairs with two other bedrooms to be not much of a problem at all. Would definitely stay again.

  • Bruce is an excellent host, and it was a delight to stay in his beautiful home. The location is fantastic and his rooms are gorgeous. After a comfortable nights sleep, we awoke to tasty coffee and pastries. Although it was a brief stay, it was perfect. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Portland.

  • Situated on a tree-lined residential neighborhood close to Whole Foods Grocery as well as other dining options this home boasts lovely and comfortable accommodations galore. Furthermore, Bruce is a wonderful host who is more than willing to lend a hand and share his knowledge of the Portland offerings while affording guests much privacy in their spacious surroundings. Simply put: A wonderful stay and a recommendable experience.

About
Greetings! I call Portland home. Having worked in Television Broadcasting for over 24 years as a Design Director I have always had a passion for the arts, photography, design and remodeling. Wine, cooking and traveling are also high on the list! Portland is a great creative town. An amazing amount of culture abound. Portlandia has definitely put us on the map. I love to travel and the best experience is feeling comfortable and welcome wherever you end up. Having lived abroad, traveling in New Zealand and Australia I gained a fondness for guest houses, seeking out creative stays all along the adventure. I am excited to share my beautiful home, some of my favorite restaurants and neighborhood highlights with new friends that I am looking forward to meeting ...and hearing where your travels have taken you!
