Bed & Breakfast - Entire home/apt · SE 61st Ave, Portland, OR 97206, United States

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.. I absolutely love to cook (growing up my parents owned a restaurant), and a made to order hot breakfast is included! Menu items range from hot breakfast panini sandwiches, homemade biscuits, Lisa's secret-recipe-fried potatoes, and much more!

The cottage contains an upstairs bedroom & sitting area. Note: There are stairs, so please take that into account if you have joint pain, etc... The full 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. Guests are welcome to use washer/dryer in main house

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

Just down the street there is a community built outdoor pizza oven made of tile and cob. Also there is a covered cob bench. We built these for public use and community gathering. Also the cottage is within walking distance of Division street shops, Pizzicato pizza, and many food carts including the much loved "Los Gorditos" food cart which was written up in Bon Apetit magazine.

The # 4 bus is just a block and a half away, which can take passengers west directly downtown or east toward the Max line (Portland's light rail).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • If you are planning on staying in Portland, stay with Lisa! Her backyard cottage has everything you need and is perfect for a vacation. Located in southeast Portland, you're super close to a lot of stores and local cafes, without having to deal with all the downtown craziness (but that's only about 10minutes away, if you're brave). Be sure to take her up on her breakfast, too! You won't regret it.

  • Lisa is a warm, gracious host and an amazing cook. We had breakfast with her twice during our recent stay and loved the food and the conversation. Her rosemary potatoes are amazing. The cottage was very comfortable for two.

  • We absolutely loved staying the in South Tabor Cottage. Where can I begin with the things we loved about it? It was so cute and cozy (and smelled amazing), and had anything and everything that we needed. The bed was comfortable and check in was a breeze. Lisa's breakfast was to die for- really- it was SO good. The location was a quick drive to anywhere in Portland. We would love to come back again!

  • The cottage is a great little place to stay in Portland. Very quiet and relaxing, and we felt very welcomed by Lisa when we arrived at the same time as she got home. And then there is breakfast, what a spread of food in the morning to get started. We will definitely be back.

  • Lisa's cottage was perfect! Just what I needed during my Portland adventure. Quiet and cozy! Wonderful place to stay, wonderful breakfast (home cooked by Lisa!) and wonderful conversation. Can't wait to come back and stay again. Had everything I needed.

  • Lisa was warm, welcoming, and informative. The cottage was a delightful place to spend a night - as cozy as could be and the bed was really comfortable. It was wonderful sipping some of the tea that Lisa provided and then gently slipping to sleep. I loved being there and will certainly go again.

I manage 11 other rental units, & I work part time from home in insurance.
I am a retired clinical social worker (I worked for 15 years in local hospitals) and live with my husband Tom (who is an RN), and our teenage son in the South Tabor neighborhood of Portland. Tom and I met two decades ago while attending the University of Puerto Rico, and we love traveling, as well as opening up our backyard cottage & meeting new people! Tom lived all over the world as a kid (Nigeria, Puerto Rico) as did I (I went to junior high in Nairobi, Kenya). I am from the Willamette Valley (wine country) in Oregon and can point you to various activities that only locals know about .... For example the twice annual wine bottling party in McMinnville, organized by Linfield College professors & neighbors up on "High Heaven Rd" where you can get 20.00+/bottle wine for only 5 dollars per bottle (if you come bottle it yourself). It takes place in the Spring and the Fall, & is not advertised anywhere & not open to general public except guests of locals (such as myself) are welcome! You may come as my guest if you are interested! Also, 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 I am happy to share with folks, that many Portlanders flock to & are not in the tourist guidebooks! I love to cook and enjoy carrying out a hot breakfast try to you in the morning (my parents used to own a restaurant, for me it's fun & relaxing to cook for people).
