A charming, light filled one bedroom cottage in the heart of Portland's Nob Hill District. This was built as a mother in law cottage behind the main house. The space is private and features a large patio and nice garden area.
There is a desk in the office nook for working on business at a computer. Free wifi is available.
The cottage has a large queen bed in the bedroom, a comfortable living room with a sofa and upholstered chair. The kitchen is tiled and fully equipped with a convection oven, microwave garbage disposal and counter top burners for cooking.
This house is across from Wallace Park and just blocks from Forest Heights and Maclay Park. Washington Park,The Rose Gardens, Japanese Garden and Chinese Gardens are all nearby.
The 23rd ave. shopping district is within walking distance with it's unique trendy shops and great restaurants available. The Pearl District is close by and the streetcar rides through the neighborhood and into downtown and across the river to the Hollywood/LLoyd Center area.
Public transportation is blocks form here and easy access to the freeways close by. Zip cars and Car2Go have many cars parked close by and bikes can be rented to travel by bike here. The Amtrak train station isn't far either. This location is very central to Portland metro area.
Alleyn was easy to communicate with and her place was awesome--super quiet, clean, and a great location as well. It is a great peaceful retreat, well appointed, tucked away in lovely Knob Hill. Thanks Alleyn!
I really enjoyed my stay! Clean, well appointed, quiet and comfortable. I will certainly return!
Alleyn's cottage was clean, quiet, and perfectly located. Easy drives to Zupan's or TJ's for dinner, and plenty of space to cook made for a fantastic staycation. Thank you Alleyn!
Alleyn was such a wonderful host. Her cottage was perfect! So clean, comfortable, warm and inviting. Comfy bed, fresh towels, flowers... It was a great place to stay, and I will definitely be going back if it is available. It is in a great part of town too. We walked everywhere. Right off 23rd where lots of great places to eat and shop are. Thanks Alleyn!
Exceeded our expectations. Fabulous "cottage" and excellent contacts. Clean! The only thing you might want to watch out for is the little step down or up between rooms. The amenities are super. Independent heaters to add to warmth, cozy soft afghans, lots of pillows, easy wifi. Quiet neighborhood so close to downtown!? Who knew? Walked to Esan Thai Restaurant on Thurman, very good local and not too crowded even on Friday night. Parking fine over by the park across the street.
We really enjoyed the MIL guest house, even though we only stayed for one night. It's got everything you need. The bed is one of the more comfortable beds we've slept on from all our bookings on airbnb. Alleyn was easy to work with. Checking in was easy, simple and hassle free. You get to check in anytime after 3pm, without having to worry about meeting with Alleyn b/c she's got a lockbox with the key by the door. The guest house is conveniently located in the heart of Nob Hill. Too bad the weather wasn't great so we didn't get to walk around the neighborhood.
I had a great experience staying at Alleyn's cottage. She was extremely understanding and flexible when I had to change my travel plans at the last-minute due to some freak snow in Portland. Although I never met her, she was very responsive to emails and texts, and I had no problems at all during my stay. The cottage itself is adorable and comfortable, not to mention clean and in an excellent location. I certainly hope to stay there again on future trips to Portland.

Another great review for Alleyn and her charming little cottage. Our second stay, so you know we like it. We'll be back.
Alleyn's cottage is a lovely oasis.Everything is provided and obviously a lot of TLC went into preparing it for guests.I forgot my eye glasses there and they were mailed to me with promptness.Although Alleyn was traveling during our stay, her thoughtful communications were (email hidden) her absence, one of her guests named Robin welcomed us with caring and (website hidden) was such a pleasure to interface with Robin.
