Located in the heart of Portland's hopping Historic Mississippi District, this spacious 2nd story apartment built in 1892 (renovated in 2005) sits next to one of the city's favorite music venues-Mississippi Studios. Ideal for small groups of friends.
This spacious inner-North Portland apartment is located in the heart of one of Portland's most popular neighborhoods. Cafes, sleek bars, boutiques, trendy storefronts and food carts line the vibrant, leafy Historic MIssissippi District.
The apartment sits aside / atop one of Portland's favorite music venues: Mississippi Studios and Bar Bar (attached bar and restaurant). Off-street parking is easily found nearby. We are located right on the TriMet #4 bus line and the MAX Light Rail Yellow Line (1/2 mile walk to either Albina Station or Overlook Station) - just minutes from downtown Portland.
**PLEASE NOTE: the apartment sits above a busy bar (BAR BAR) - on a street with several other bars and is located next door to Mississippi Studios (a music venue). If you or anyone in your party are light sleepers, you should consider another place. Most guests don't have an issue with the noise but everyone has different tolerances to it so please check in with your party before booking.**
While in town, if you'd like to see a show , please check out Mississippi Studios on the web and let me know.
There is a one time cleaning fee of 60.00
Entire apartment and private back balcony. Full kitchen. Full bath. On-site, free washer / dryer. Free wi-fi.
Interaction with Guests
Lots of interaction or none at all, I'm readily available and enjoy interacting with guests via text if need be. I enjoy answering questions about Portland-ish "things to do" in the area. I usually stop by the property every 2-3 days a week as I oversee operations at the music venue below; however, guests will typically interact with one of our managers when checking in and checking out.
Please visit Historic Mississippi Avenue on the web.
Small conv. store located three doors down (NuRite Market). New Seasons grocery store is a 10 minute walk. The neighborhood has over 60+ shops and restaurants.
Very easy, Visit TriMet on the web for more information on Portland's public transit system and light rail.
The MAX Light Rail Yellow Line is near-by, running Interstate Avenue. The Yellow Line stops at both the Albina-Mississippi Station or Overlook Station - both stations are about a 1/2 mile walk. The TriMet #4 bus runs up and down Mississippi Ave. with 10 minute, frequent service to downtown and central SE Portland (Division Street).
Other Things to Note
Please see note about the apartment sitting atop the bar next to Mississippi Studios (concert venue). If anyone in your group is a light sleeper, the apartment probably isn't a good fit. Although there is no central AC, we do have AC window units and fans which keep he apartment really cool, even on the rare weeks of +90 degree weather in July / August.
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING, NO CANDLES. No pets. No parties - ask host for details on this policy as we have occupancy limits and liquor control rules which apply to the apartment.
The bar below will not allow any drinks from the apartment taken on the patio or bar below, this is a state liquor license law.
And although we LOVE kids, and don't have a policy against kids, given the apartment sits above a bar / concert venue, its not really a good fit for families traveling with younger children.
Lauren was so awesome and very hospitable. Very convenient location, full of character, on top of a really great venue/ bar with lots of great restaurants and local shopping in easy walking distance. Our group was slightly concerned about 4 adult males sharing the room with all the bunk beds, but everyone slept like babies and we all agreed it was plenty of room for the 7 of us. So much better than hotel rooms, we had such a blast and this apartment helped to make a very memorable trip.
I was travelling with a couple of female friends. The location is really great and the apartment is spacious and comfortable. Key pick-up was super easy because the apartment is related to the bar, below. I would definitely stay here again.
Lauren is super friendly and helpful. The place is fantastic and the location even better. I can't see staying anywhere else when I visit.
We had a great time here! Very cool, trendy neighbourhood. Everything you need is provided, great for a group of friends!
What a wonderful property!! Lauren was very accommodating and easy to get a hold of. Her property is located in a lively part of town in the midst of many shops, restaurants, and lounge/bars. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay!!
This is a great place to stage some Portland adventuring! I was surprised by the size and comfort of the common space - this is a good place not just to stay, but also to chill - especially in front of the working (gas) fireplace.
Excellent place for staging some Portland (website hidden) Bar is very good, and was not as loud as we had anticipated. There are other good places to eat and drink within walking distance - Gravy is a very solid classic breakfast house 2 doors down, the wait can often be up to 2 hours, but being so close makes it easy to pop out and check on your spot in line every few minutes.
For transportation, the 4 bus picks up down the block and it will bring you straight downtown.
Overall this was a very good Portland experience for 6 close friends.
Lauren was a wonderful host! The apt was fun and so lively! Thanks for everything!
