Great location

Stay in this stunning craftsman cottage that is brand new and where almost every detail was thoughtfully designed and uniquely handcrafted. The cottage is tucked away on the other side of the block from my home so you’ll have your own private entrance/driveway. Max light rail is 10 minutes away on foot, and you can walk to the heart of Mississippi in under 25. The unit also features many amenities, including high-speed Internet connection; flat screen TV; and a well-appointed kitchenette.

The space
I love this space and hope you will too. It’s “rustic-industrial,” with 15-foot vaulted ceilings, black iron edison lighting, live-edge Doug Fir countertop, barn-style closet doors, and walls clad with reclaimed wood. It is featured on the cover of "Backdoor Revolution," a book about the backyard cottage movement that started here in Portland!

The unit is located on the other side of the block from my home so you’ll have your own entrance. You’ll even have your own private driveway. The cottage also hosts a small bistro sitting area outside the front door where you can sip some locally-roasted coffee or enjoy a glass of Oregon Pinot.

Hop on a Max train headed downtown in just 10 minutes, or walk to the heart of trending Mississippi in under 25. If you have a car, the entrance to I-5 is just a few blocks down the street.

Given its cozy size, the place is designed for two. The chaise sectional sofa does fold out into a queen sleeper if you want to sleep in separate beds, but please let me me know so I can provide extra linens (and please understand that my guest max is two unless authorized otherwise).

In addition, you’ll find high-speed Internet connection; flat screen TV (on a wall mount pivot arm) with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon; card games and Portland travel books galore; well-appointed kitchenette with double burner cooktop, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee/tea/condiments, and loads of other kitchen amenities; cuddly blankets, towels, and pillows; basic toiletries and a hair dryer; as well as handmade slippers in an assortment of sizes. The unit is well-insulated; it also has window AC!

If you need to do laundry, just ask and I’ll happily arrange for you to use the washer/dryer in my home.

I used to have a DC address (and a West Coast soul), but now I'm happily living on the best coast. I moved here a few years ago. It's been a huge and welcome life change! Nature and exploring the city are biggies for me - backpacking, yoga, and the amazing culinary paradise in this town. I also love working on my house, creating beautiful things, and hanging out in my own backyard!
