We enjoyed our stay with Alleyn. The cottage was private and roomy in a great part of town. We loved walking around the neighborhood and grabbing dinner just a few blocks away. Alleyn was wonderful and gave us good information to plan our day trip to Cannon Beach and the waterfalls. We definitely recommend her Garden Cottage.
I checked into this darling cottage for two nights for a work conference, then my husband joined me for two nights. It was a beautiful cottage, with every amenity we could have needed. There was plenty of parking, and a quick walk to very trendy shops and restaurants and pubs. This is a very tony area of Portland and very beautiful and safe feeling.
I walked to downtown one day too - it's about a 35 minute walk to downtown, or $10 cab ride. I would absolutely stay here again in a heart beat, and I couldn't recommend it more.
The bed is the most comfortable I have ever slept in!
The garden cottage was great! Located in a great neighborhood and Alleyn the host was very friendly and welcoming.
This was an excellent location to get around Portland as a first-time visitor, especially if you like to walk. There were excellent restaurants within walking distance and also easy access to two different bus lines and the street car. The neighborhood is beautiful and you can get to two trails and a park in minutes. The cottage is small but was perfect for two people. It was quiet and we had everything we could need and then some for a 10-day stay. Alleyn was very responsive throughout the whole process. One note, we never actually met her because she has a coded lock set up on the cottage. This was fine for me, and i have no doubt we could have gotten together with her had we needed anything.
We only stayed there for one night, but it was comfortable and we felt at home. The place had everything we needed. The location is great as well.
Alleyn was hospitable and made us feel welcome. She gave us a nice tour of the cottage and recommended a place to eat in town.
We stayed with Alleyn about two years ago as well and looked forward to our return to the cottage. I love the very private space that is so nicely decorated. Alleyn is great with communication and immediate assistance. This cotage is in such a great neighborhood. Fun to walk around, great restaurants and shops.

I live in the NW district close to the center of town because it is easily accessible from almost anywhere in Portland. Ten minutes from the airport. My great grandparents built homes in this neighborhood when it was first being developed and I have always loved this section of town. I moved to my present home in the Nob Hill district about 14 years ago.
I was an interior designer for many years and I also teach watercolor at the local community center.
I can't live without the ocean (an hour and a half drive from here), the mountains (an hour's drive), the beautiful Columbia gorge (1/2 hour) and Forest Park (minutes away).
I just saw the movie St Vincent with Bill Murray and loved it. Funny and charming.
I enjoy people from all walks of life and love to travel when given the chance.
