The Maple Cottage is located in the Historic Mississippi district of Portland. It offers a full kitchen, bedroom and generous dining room table that doubles as a work area.

Welcome to our home!

The space

If you would enjoy a central location in Portland with easy access to downtown, the Pearl, Alberta Arts and Forest Park, consider our charming, art filled house. We are a comfortable, fun lesbian couple with an adorable Maltese poodle (hypoallergenic) and we enjoy sharing our knowledge of Portland. After sight-seeing, relax beneath the beautiful canopy of the big leaf maple with our "Wild in the City" guide. There's nothing like a home away from home!

Guest access

You'll enjoy the detached guest cottage set under a sweeping Maple tree, dotted with ferns and flowers. Have a glass of wine sitting on your own patio with a privacy screen that separates you from our main house and deck. The private entrance opens onto an alley just a few feet away from all the fun businesses of the Historic Mississippi district!

Interaction with guests

Hi folks,
We are a friendly couple who enjoy meeting people so feel free to text or call us! We love sharing our knowledge of Portland and Oregon and could answer specific questions too. Knowing that you may want privacy, we will knock on your door only if you invite us to!

The Maple Cottage is a perfect place to stay while in Portland. It is beautifully appointed and immaculate. The location is in a perfect spot to walk to great shops and restaurants. Also close to the light rail to get downtown. If you choose to cook the kitchen is well equipped to do so. Mariah and Marilyn are wonderful hosts making us feel very comfortable. We will return!

We really loved our stay at Mariah's place. Great hosts, very welcoming and helpful, and so many nice touches. The guesthouse was spacious, immaculate, and pleasing. Loved the shady yard to sit in. Kitchen had everything we needed and much more. We stayed 4 nights but would have been comfortable for a much longer stay. It was a wonderful home away from home! Great location as well. Short walk to fun restaurants and shops. And not too far to walk to the light rail for a fast ride into downtown.

The cottage was perfect for my daughter and I. The location was just as described, close to transit, easy access to the freeway and in a great neighbourhood. Mariah was so friendly and helpful.

The rental was great. Very homey and super close to Mississippi Ave and Williams Ave. The had local coffee in the rental and the beds and chairs were very comfortable.

The Maple Cottage is an adorable little getaway, tucked away in the Boise neighborhood, near Mississippi Avenue and several great restaurants, shops and breweries. If you get the chance, walk down to Ecliptic Brewing for their Happy Hour, it's amazing. Labrewatory is also a walk you won't regret, with refreshingly unique brews and bright, open spaces. New Seasons Market is a short walk and has a great selection of organic produce, meats and cheeses should you choose to cook in the well appointed kitchen. The patio is also a nice place to sit and have your morning coffee, or an afternoon brew under the shade of a huge maple tree. My husband and I really enjoyed our time in this private cottage and will definitely be back.

We loved our stay in Mariah's guest cottage. It's tucked away in a nice little neighborhood. Mississippi street is within walking distance, so you can walk to brunch.

We are a long term couple who have made Portland our home for over 20 years. The beauty of this place continues to knock our socks off! Getting out to hike, bike or kayak is a natural draw for us. Picnicking on the Wahclella Falls trail or kayaking on Lost Lake with Mt. Hood shining in the distance are favorite places. When we get home we can walk to a nearby Thai bistro, Monsoon and pick up some Pumpkin Curry. And there's also pizza and beer at the Kennedy School movie house. We love to walk out the door and wander down historic Mississippi Avenue for breakfast -- crepes at FlapJak or creme brulee oatmeal at Gravy. Maybe we'll catch one of the seasonal events there like the Mardi Gras parade, Mississippi Street Fair or the Naked Bike Ride.
But we also love hanging with friends or watching one of our favorite Netflix shows like 'Miss Fisher's Mystery Theatre'. I'm currently semi-retired and Marilyn is fully retired as of October 2016. We have plenty of time to welcome folks to our charming cottage and be available as needed. Chances are we can answer your questions or point you in the right direction.
Our motto is JAFA, Baby! (when you meet us, ask us what it means!)
