About the property

Cottage, 2 bedrooms , 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

A fully furnished two-bedroom, one-bath cottage. Old World charm, with knotty pine throughout, beamed ceiling, hand-scraped birch flooring, Persian rugs, antiques and original art. Two decks, upper and lower, with a propane BBQ, table and chairs for "dining out." A yard in back with regulation horseshoe pits. An exterior sauna for four! (see more below.) A disc golf course 100 feet from your front door. A city park with playground 300 feet from your door. A ten-to-twelve-minute walk to Multnomah Village, with its charming coffee shops, restaurants and pubs, antique shops, art galleries, boutiques and gift shops. And all within a ten-minute drive of downtown!

The house is filled with the things required for living: bedding, towels and washcloths, soap and shampoo, toothpaste, shaving cream, a filled

medicine cabinet, hair dryer, dish and laundry detergent, and so on. Three TVs, one with a two with DVD players and one with a VCR, a classic movie collection of over 200 films (DVD and VCR), WiFi coverage throughout.

The kitchen (see picture 3)is a working kitchen, with everything that you have in your kitchen at home: a double sink, stove refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, pots and pans, bread and butter, jam, vinegar and oil, sugar and spices, condiments, coffee and tea, on and on. It is meant to require of you only that you bring the main ingredients of the meals you plan to prepare. The table and space available will seat six.

For families with small children, we have: a cradle, two cribs. stair gates, a stroller, highchairs, and lots of toys, playthings and books for all ages. The side closets are child-scale play areas.

The main floor living area has a leather couch/hide-a-bed, table and easy chair. Also on the main floor is the large bathroom, wheelchair accessible, and the garage, which has been semi-converted into a bonus room with a convertible couch and a wall-mounted 40" television.

On the second floor are the two bedrooms. The east bedroom (see pictures 9-11) has two single beds in an alcove and a queen-size futon in the main area which, during the day, can serve as seating for TV watching. Off the east bedroom is a deck (see picture 12), facing east, which makes a great spot to sit with your coffee to watch the morning sunrise. The west bedroom (see pictures 7 & 8) has a queen-size bed and desk, and a TV with built-in DVD player/VCR.

Wonderful stay for our family- relaxing spot to enjoy Portland

  • 5 of 5

Dennis and Trudi are gracious hosts- offering a comfortable respite in an “off the beaten path” neighborhood of Portland. We enjoyed hanging at the house.

Thank you!

Great place and renters

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay when visiting Portland. Was close to highway so easy to get to other places we wanted to visit. Close to an amazing park for our kids and a fun frisbee golf course with walking trails around it. The guest house is comfy and was a great home away from home. Kids loved the setup of many little areas just for them in what we called the secret walls of joy. Many games to play and movies to watch. The sauna was great too. We stayed when flowers were blooming which made it that much nicer. Would definitely stay again.

Extra greatness is we left some photos which they mailed to our home right away that we didn't know we left. Good people.
