About this listing
This is a great remodeled home in a neighborhood that you can spend weeks exploring all of the fabulous dining spots! Check out my guidebook with all of my close by favorites!
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 markets are nearby on Saturdays and 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 or the 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.
The two bedrooms are on the main floor on either side of the shared bathroom. There is a comfortable memory foam and spring style queen size bed, dresser, spacious closet, and a desk.
The kitchen is spacious and filled with lots of handmade dishes. Filtered water is on the fridge and a coffee maker and grinder available.
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.
You will have a full bathroom with a clawfoot tub and shower right next to the bedroom that is shared with the other guest room, all on the main floor. The kitchen has a microwave, coffee pot, refrigerator in case you need to store your leftovers, snacks, cold drinks. I have coffee and tea available in the mornings. Dining and living room also on the main floor, and there is a patio table in the backyard or you are welcome to sit on the covered front porch.
Interaction with guests
I'm usually home in the mornings and late afternoons if you have questions about getting around town or would like suggestions for places to go, and you are always welcome to message me if I'm not there.
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
There is ample street parking and three bus lines very close by. The Trimet website and app is great for finding the best way to get around on public transportation. Uber, Lyft, and taxis are abundant. A bike rental company is just a few blocks away and the orange public rental bikes (biketown) are accessible in many locations.
Other things to note
I have a very old cat, and sometimes he gets a bit vocal! Let me know before booking if you are bringing your pet so I can make arrangements with my cat. (I usually will just shut my door to the upstairs of the house.)
Please follow the eco-friendly recycling and composting guidelines on the bins in the kitchen.
Artificially scented personal products and perfume are hard for me to live with, so please be conscientious :)
Please turn on the bathroom fan during and after showering.
No smoking anything indoors (outside is fine)
Limited kitchen use to simple preparations.
Please keep the front door locked.
If you are bringing a dog, it must have current flea control, and please contact me before booking. Sorry, no cats.
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 almost 20 years and living here suits me well! I love the food and drink scene here, and regularly go out to visit art galleries and live music.
