Interaction with Guests
House is all yours when you're here!
The Alberta Arts District is quintessential Portland - a cornucopia of funky and independent shops, galleries, bars & restaurants. We've got world famous pie and coffee, 5 kinds of Thai, an amazing tea shop, vegan bakery, co-op and guitar shop within a few blocks. Catch a flick at the Kennedy School or live music at the Alberta Street Pub or Alberta Rose Theater.
Every Last Thursday from May thru September we have a freewheeling art festival on the street. Last Thursday is a rich tradition where it's free to vend and attend. You'll see washboard bands, teen violinists, Native American drumming circles, fab art and funky attire right outside our front door!
Public transportation options abound: We are on several major bus lines and one block from a designated biking boulevard. By car we are 10 minutes from the airport, Lloyd Center Mall, Convention Center and Light Rail and less than 15 minutes to downtown Portland.

We had 7 adult women staying at the Inn for a conference we were hosting in town. The Inn is in a perfect location, as our guests were from out of town they loved having Alberta to explore. Overall our guests were very happy with the stay. They did mention to me that regarding the downstairs bathroom it would be helpful to have an interior lock on the bathroom door to the inn, otherwise there was no way for them to lock it from other inn guests (there was an interior lock to the door for the glass studio use).
Rochelle was very helpful in allowing me access to the inn early to drop off food for our attendees and even helped us coordinate space next door for the conference.
Overall I would recommend the Inn for anyone considering it.
Rented the entire house for 3 nights over NYE for 6-couples and a 2-singles. We were a complicated group, as some of us had accidentally reserved individual rooms before the entire house was rented, and our schedules were also complicated with some people arriving earlier or staying later than the booked 3-days. Rochelle, and her helper Phoenix were really helpful in having everything run smoothly, and getting all of our accomodations sorted. The house has a great feel. It was clean, and cozy and warm even though the temperature outside was below freezing. The neighborhood also has great restaurants, bars, and coffee shops, and the house is perfectly located for the area. I highly recommend this place for any groups getting together in PDX.
Beautiful house. Amazing location. Host very prompt and courteous. Would happily stay here again.
The Qientessential Inn is a fun and fantastic place! The house is very charming and nicely kept up, and the location is amazing. All the guests loved the place and enjoyed their stay. Rochelle was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. We highly recommend renting from her.
We had a great weekend at the Inn Alberta Arts. Rochelle was so easy to coordinate everything with beforehand and made everything so easy for us. We had 14 people and there was more than enough room for all of us. It was so much better for us to all be in the house together as opposed to renting several hotel rooms. The neighborhood has lots of restaurants and shops and we loved exploring the area. I couldn't say enough good things about our stay here.
Our team of six spent a couple evenings in this great house. Loved the location, the space, and the host.
Rochelle was a great host, welcoming, helpful & accessible if we needed her. We didn't need to contact her as everything was perfect.
This house is great for large family gatherings and the area is amazing - brew pubs, cool restaurants, quirky shops, organic (email hidden)-op & New Seasons. Very comfortable beds. We would highly recommend this rental.

I've lived all over Portland, but after planting roots in the Alberta Arts district a nearly a decade ago, I can't imagine living anywhere else. Even in a city known for 'different', Alberta pushes the free- and forward-thinking envelope just a little bit further.
Our house is in a great spot--so close to fab food, art, yoga, and shopping for all budgets. (Don't forget to stop off for a slice of Random Order pie!) We've got our own local bike rental and public transportation options within 1 to 2 blocks.
Portland is rich in beautiful natural spots and diverse cultural offerings.Must visits on my list include the Gorge waterfalls and Powells books - the ultimate planetary bookstore (at least in this galaxy).
I think one of the best parts of traveling is feeling comfortable wherever you land. When I'm on the road, I steer toward cheerful, friendly spots with just the right mix of privacy and community. Living in England cemented my fondness for guest houses. Those happy stays in cozy homes primed me to seek out similar lodgings when I travel.
I love being able to open our house to the fabulous folk who find their way to us. I look forward to meeting you and hearing some of your stories. Welcome!
