About this listing
This is a classic 1911 Craftsman style Portland bungalow. It's spacious, fully remodeled, hardwood floors, well insulated, new windows, forced air heat, tankless on demand hot water heater, comfortable and clean.
Great close in location near Alberta Arts district, close to three bus lines and not too far from the Max line. Walk or easy bike to co-op and several grocery stores, farmer´s market on Sundays, N Williams and Mississippi Ave for lots of great restaurants, coffee shops, live music, Peninsula Park rose garden, library, and so much more! It's an easy 15 minute drive to the airport and Pearl District and Downtown.
Some of the best food that Portland has to offer is located right in the neighborhood. The options seem endless, but if you need suggestions, I have lived here a long time and know many of the best places to dine and drink and see a show.
Street parking is always available.
Bicycle rentals are available nearby.
The bedroom is on the main floor next to the bathroom. There is a comfortable memory foam queen size bed, dresser, spacious closet, and a large desk.
The shared bathroom features handmade tile, a nice clawfoot tub, and extra space for your toiletries.
The kitchen is spacious and filled with lots of handmade dishes. Filtered water is on the fridge and a coffee maker and grinder available for use.
There is a nice front porch with sitting area and landscaped yard with lots of large trees, native style garden and patio seating in the back with a BBQ and outdoor fireplace.
Ceramics, sculpture, paintings, and prints are throughout the house. My ceramic studio is in the basement.
Eli the bengal mix cat that lives here mainly stays in my bedroom upstairs except when in the kitchen to eat. He doesn't shed much, so if allergies are an issue you may not even notice it here.
If you want to experience Portland and all the great things that make this city unique, this is a great house and perfect location to stay.

Me and Cindy had a pretty busy schedule when we arrived in Portland, so we checked in really late. Cynthia is a wonderful host!!! I contacted her and told her my plan, and she was so generous and welcoming. She helped us to make things become easier. I like her a lot : )
Cynthia has a beautiful house and the room is spacious and light, with closet space and a really comfy bed. The internet connection is also fantastic! Cynthia is a great host, really easy going and relaxed and she gave us heaps of fantastic info about things to do in her neighbourhood and greater Portland. We loved the neighbourhood and Portland in general. Great place to stay, would definitely recommend!
Cynthia was lovely and so is her apartment. Shes a very interesting woman and knows all about Portland. Her house is clean, kitchen is really nice with all her own hand made pottery. The backyard is fabulous for lounging and having a glass of oregon pinot noir. thank you Cynthia - I will be back!
Highly recommended! Cynthia was a great host! She is warm and welcoming to us. Her house is so interesting. I loved all the great ceramic pieces and her washroom is my dream washroom! Her place is close to the Alberta Arts District and she is great to ask for what to do if you ever need ideas. I wish we had more time to chat but if we're back in Portland again (I'm sure we will be) we will stay at Cynthia's again!
Great house, easy access kitchen & bath, and friendly hosts, would stay again.
Cynthia is such a gracious host! She accomodated the three of us (plus 2 dogs!) on very short notice. Her house is very comfortable and there are some really interesting art peices throughout her place! I would definitley stay here again!
What a wonderful stay! Cynthia is a gracious host and super friendly and mellow - I felt calmer just being around her! The house is beautiful inside (lots of antiques and art, including Cynthia's ceramics) and outside (lush garden with backyard table and seating to relax). VERY clean. I love the NE and the house is in a great location for biking about my favorite neighborhood. So much to see and do on Alberta, Williams, and I didn't even get back to Mississippi this trip. Oh, and the bed is super comfy - I slept very well!

About the Host, Cynthia
I am a ceramic artist and I teach classes at Portland Community College. I spend my free time cooking, working in the yard, making things, and enjoying good wine, beer, and food. I've been in Portland for about 15 years and living here suits me well. I love the food and drink scene here, and regularly go out to see art and music.
