This charming little cottage sits back on a large urban lot in quiet NE Portland. Just a 5-10 minute bike ride from many urban gems: the famous Alberta Arts District, locally owned shops, a large natural grocery store and a food-co-op, a non-profit yoga studio, bike shops, bars, bakeries, many coffee shops and restaurants in this food lover’s mecca. You’ll feel like you’re in a quiet country cottage, but you’ll truly be in the heart of the city: only a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Portland.

The space
The house includes:
New queen bed.
Kitchenette including: microwave, toaster oven, electric water kettle, french press and coffee, hot plate, pot and pans, dishes. There's NO oven. The fridge does not have a freezer.

Bathroom with hot shower and composting toilet, biodegradable soaps provided for your use. There's only ONE sink, between the kitchen and bathroom.
Ample street parking right in front of the house.
Free Wi-Fi available to all guests.
Guests may also utilize our 1/4 acre yard and hammock (in the dry season).

We do our best to minimize our footprint on the planet. This house is on a grey-water system, not connected to the septic system. The bathroom does have a hot shower, but all water drains to a grey water system. We provide complimentary biodegradable soaps for our guests. The toilet is a composting toilet that is cleaned after each guest’s stay. Please help us keep the land chemical free.
