Authentic Alberta Arts Abode

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Northeast Wygant Street, Portland, OR 97211, United States

The Space

Every nook and cranny of this joint has been spruced up and is anticipating your arrival. This apartment is only used through airbnb meaning it is staged so you feel like you live in it and have every cozy thing you will need like a hotel but so much better...There is an all equipped kitchen and an incredibly comfy queen bed in the albeit small cozy bedroom. The bedroom has a sliding door, closet, and the bed built into the corner. There is also an Ethan Allen couch in the living area that has a bed inside of it for extra guests. There are heated floors so that your feet are warm in the winter time. A ton of great books to curl up and read and a patio outside of your french doors and private entrance from the street. There is also a driveway in front of the apartment which is yours to use or not. This abode was made to feel rustic so much of the wood is unfinished. If you prefer brand new construction with a rustic finish this is the place for you.

Location! Location! Location! We are in an awesome location! Not near the Alberta district but IN it yet we are a couple of blocks away which means our street is quiet. We are a stone's throw from so many great bars and restaurants. This could be a vacation of all walking or you could hop on one of the many public transit options a few blocks away. Or you could rent bikes on Alberta St. This neighborhood is so fun and filled with cute and unique small businesses, shops and establishments yet it is also peaceful. The farmer's market is exactly three blocks down the street and takes place each Sunday. Last Thursday is a festival once a month on Alberta St. We are also walkable/bikeable to other neighborhoods in the NE like the Williams Corridor and Mississippi St.

Our abode is like a retreat in a very fun city! We are here as your hosts to help create the best stay possible but it is likely we may never see you as your apartment is completely private from our home. The space is a garden level so it is underneath our house but has french doors and a big window overlooking your own outside space. This space gets great light and truly feels like a cabin. Even though we took great measures in sound proofing you still will hear us pittering and pattering upstairs, our dog barking at the mailman, or our washer/dryer when it is on. You will have a sound machine in your bedroom in case you are a sensitive sleeper and the above might disturb you. We will also leave you an extensive homegrown list of the best spots in town and will only be a text away! The feeling of the apartment is truly unique and quite an experience. We look forward to creating the best nest for your Portland adventure.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This is a really fantastically designed little apartment right on the edge of NE Alberta, brilliantly located for all the shops and cafes. Penelope was super accommodating to let my sister-in-law stay with us at short notice and the off road parking was a real plus point.

    Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying here, everything was perfect.

  • This place is a great way to experience Portland! It is exactly as pictured and the bed is super comfortable. They leave a little information about cool places to check out close by and a quest review book filled with lots of kind notes! It has a nice design and homey feel and I will definitely be back on my next road trip up to the north!

  • Wir haben eine sehr schöne Zeit zu dritt in dieser gemütlichen und waren Wohnung. Penelope ist eine grosszügige und herzhafte Gastgeberin, und die Wohnung ist kuschelig schön. Zugang sowohl zu guten Einkaufs- und Essmöglichkeiten als auch zu öffentlichen Verkehrsgelegenheiten ist leicht in dieser schönen und gelassen Umgebung.

  • We loved this place! It is perfect for a couple; super cute and cozy. We spent a weekend here and felt right at home- it actually feels very much like a home and it has pretty much everything you need.

    The interior design is really amazing; stylish, but purposeful and not pretentious. Everything is vintage but in great working condition- including some kitchen items as well as the sweet jam box with cassette tapes. The sinks and shower are modern and the gas stove is very updated and works great! It's also worth mentioning that even though this has a vintage and cozy feel, it is super CLEAN. Penelope has a professional come and clean it between guests, which was noticeable and appreciated.

    The bed-- THE BED!!! We loved this cute little bedroom nook- so cozy! Yes, it's built into the room, so you can't walk all the way around it- who cares?! You are sleeping by a cozy, private window and enclosed with sweet walls and sconces! And it's very soft and comfortable (not saggy!) with a great pillow selection. Two excellent nights of sleep for us!

    The apartment is just a couple of blocks walk from Alberta Street where you can find food, bars, shopping, a Co-op, and plenty of coffee, etc. This is an awesome location!

    Communication with Penelope was fast, friendly and efficient and she gave us plenty of privacy.

    We are looking forward to staying here again the next time we're in PDX!

  • Character, coziness, and special touches in a fabulous location. Seriously great!

  • Our stay at Penelope's was just wonderful! It just so happened that our weekend visit to Portland coincided with the biggest snow and ice storm the city experienced in five years. A biiiiig portion of the city shut down, and going out and about in the city meant bundling up, getting cold feet, and shivers upon shivers. We were SO GRATEFUL to have such a warm, cozy nest in the city to call "home" during our stay. We made frequent, "warm up" trips back during the day, and it was always so pleasant to return to. And the proximity to Alberta St. and restaurants, etc. withing a short, snowy walk was even more appreciated than usual. Also, Penelope was kind enough to let us check out late our last day there when there were ice and freezing rain warnings. It DEFINITELY improved our final day in Portland. Not sure what we would have done otherwise.

    Thank you for letting us stay -- it was wonderful and we'd come back in a heartbeat (preferably when it's not snowing).

  • Really cozy place in a great location. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Very private, we enjoyed staying here!

  • My boyfriend and I had a fantastic weekend at Penelope's place! The abode itself is great, we never wanted to leave. It was really cosy, the bed was comfy, and we really liked the tape player and all the cassettes there were to play (dancing always beats TV), as well as all the good books that were around - we really felt like the place was ours. The area is great, not only did we experience all the great restaurants and bars (Penelope provides a list with great recommendations!), but the abode is really close to a couple of bus lines that made it easy to get to downtown and the airport. We didn't personally meet Penelope, but it was great to have so much space to ourselves, and checking in and out was really easy. Hopefully we will be back soon!

I am a professional organizer and co-active coach. My husband owns his own electrical contracting company. We moved to Portland from San Francisco years ago to plant some roots and my how they have grown! We have remodeled two homes and our current home has been featured in the home decor blog Apartment Therapy. I love creating a magical and enchanted space for others to enjoy and refuel in.. Nathan and I use airbnb when we travel as it feels as if you are a local and less removed from the adventure at hand. I love leaving a list of our favorite spots here in Portland and enjoy playing host. We hope to make sure you adore this sweet little town as much as we do!
