We generally try to be here to great you and orient you to the space. We try to invite our longer term guests out for a breakfast or down for a salmon BBQ during their stay. We enjoy getting to know our guests.
It's ever so accessible for so many things: downtown, nearby parks and hiking paths.
We are two blocks from the MAX line, one block from bus routes. There are many flex and zip cars within blocks.
Other Things to Note
So many guests come to Portland just to drink beer and eat at our famous food carts. We have lots of Portland information waiting for you in the suite.
We ask that laundry not be done after 10 in the evening, as the plumbing noises come into our bedroom. We are big on recycling and hope our guests will make efforts to do the same.
