Cute little Tiny House! It used to be our boys' fort when they were young, now it is a comfortable little retreat for adventurers exploring Portland!

The space

Cute little back yard "granny flat" cottage located near Mt Tabor park in very desirable neighborhood! The cottage is "Portland Style" construction with excellent insulation (R30), new windows, etc.. Great host, free internet, parking, furnished living space that is quite private..
The cottage contains an upstairs bedroom & sitting area. Note: There are steep stairs, so please take that into account ~ if you have joint pain, etc. this might not be the best choice of places to stay... The QUEEN size mattress is new and comfortable. Downstairs there is a small kitchen with stove, microwave and under the counter fridge. Also downstairs is a full bath with ceramic tile shower. Coffee maker and freshly ground coffee provided in the cottage as well as complimentary muffins. At times a made to order hot breakfast is available, message me to see if it will be available during your stay :-D. Guests are welcome to use washer/dryer in main house.

Guests have use of the back yard with fruit trees and some berries when in season.

Also the cottage is within walking distance of Division street shops, Pizzicato pizza, the 52nd & Foster street Food Carts and much more.
The # 4 bus is just a block and a half away, which can take passengers west directly downtown. The "(URL HIDDEN) app or website is easy to use & can help you get you anywhere from the airport, to downtown, to Powells Books, The Chinese Garden, and so on.

Nice place to stay in a lovely neighbourhood. It easy to take a bus to downtown, but you can also find restaurants and nice shops just a few blocks away. Comfortable bed and freshly cooked breakfast!

Lisa went out of her way to make sure we were cool during a record hot wave. Her hospitality is warm, genuine and unobtrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Lisa and her cottage were equally amazing! My 15 year old daughter and I were traveling together for a mother-daughter trip in the Northwest, and we began it with 2 nights at Lisa's place in Portland. When we arrived at the cottage, there was a sweet note for us, along with a menu of items to choose from for breakfast the next morning, homemade fresh by Lisa. Breakfast was AMAZING. The potato hash rivaled anything I've ever eaten for breakfast anywhere. So good!! And Lisa was very helpful in providing us with ideas of where to eat and tips for things to explore in Portland. We couldn't have asked for a better place to begin our trip. We'll stay with Lisa whenever we are able to make it back to Portland.

A cute little place close to a lot of amazing portlandia spots. Lisa cooks BOMB breakfast. Most notably- her soft and flakey biscuits.

Very cute and livable tiny house in a friendly neighborhood just off Division St. The bed was so comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom were thoughtfully stocked. Plus, everything was perfectly clean. Did I mention the restaurant worthy breakfast? This place deserves 5 stars. Thanks Lisa!

My wife and I had a quick one night stay with Lisa and had a great time in her cozy cottage. Unfortunately we had to leave before 8 am for work and were unable to enjoy her breakfast! Also note that the cottage did get a little chilly overnight, but we admittedly didn't try to turn on the heat (stayed in July).

Lisa User ProfileLisa is a superhost.

I am a retired clinical social worker ~ I worked for 20 years in local hospitals and live with my husband (who is a soon to be retired RN). We also have a "Schnoodle" rescue doggie Davy-Jones, who monitors the neighborhood from his perch a top the couch. Our two "twenty-something" sons reportedly live with us, but we rarely see them, lol! We've lived two decades here in the South Tabor neighborhood of Portland. Tom and I met twenty some ago while attending the University of Puerto Rico, and we love traveling, as well as opening up our backyard cottage & meeting new people! There are some great walking trails - a couple of my favorites are walking on nearby Mt. Tabor park with views of the whole city. I also enjoy the trail next to the Columbia River. There are also plenty of fantastic places to eat in Portland & the food carts are really innovative!

My hero is Eleanor Roosevelt, I can't seem to get enough of the color RED. In everything. I live for my art journaling group: aka: a bunch of sassy women who meet once a week to do fabulous art & then go out to happy hour afterwards~lol!
My husband is my best friend on earth, followed closely by my dad & fabulously unique sister who (unlike me) mows her lawn in high heels and mini skirts! My folks and siblings all live close by, many generations Oregonians are we all & are happy to welcome you to this great state!!!
Years ago my parents used to own a popular local restaurant with lunch and dinner lines going out the door. I suppose it's how I'm hardwired.... Some people do yoga to relax, I cook write & paint to relax, LOVE it!!! I'm excited to welcome you to THIS particular part of your awesome adventures in traveling, I love meeting guests who are embarking on all kinds of adventurers :-D
