A private room with semi-shared bathroom in a quiet Mt. Tabor neighborhood that's close and convenient to all things Portland. Two blocks to public transportation, and about a 25 minute bus ride to downtown. Walking distance to Montavilla with shopping, food, pubs and entertainment. Lovely, quiet back yard.

The space

A charming 1930s English cottage on a double lot with a spacious back yard in a quiet residential neighborhood. Five minute walk to Portland's 2016 Restaurant of the Year, Coquine. It's also five minutes to historic Mt. Tabor Park, an extinct shield volcano with miles of hiking/running trails and picnicking facilities.

Guests have full access to living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry. Free parking on street in front of house. Convenient to Portland International Airport. Easy access to freeways, buses, the Columbia Gorge and Mount Hood.

Room includes ample closet and dresser space, books on Portland and fresh towels. Our relaxing backyard features a koi pond and gardens.

We are a quiet mature couple with a friendly dog who loves people. We also have a cat but she's shy and seldom seen.

A lovely place to rest our heads in Portland. Janet and Scott were very sweet hosts with Janet going out to get us milk so that we could gave our tea the next morning! The sound of Scott's guitar provide a lovely ambience and we loved the tips on transportation, restaurants and things to do! Montevilla is fab, as is the Saturday (and Sunday) market in downtown and we had a great brunch at local restaurant Coquine. Thanks both xx

We have been using Airbnb whilst travelling around the USA and this has definitely been our favourite accommodation. Janet and Scott are lovely and welcoming, we felt at home straight away. Their dog is lovely too. The room is lovely and looks like pictures. Bus into town is easy and quick. Their son kindly showed us around the 'local side' of town and we had a great experience in Portland, would definitely stay here again! Janet and Scott were great at responding to us, especially when we had some difficulty with the website. We strongly recommend this accommodation!

I had a wonderful stay here. The place is exactly as described, Janet and Scott are very friendly and respectful. The house is cozy, the bed is super confortable and Mt Tabor Park is really close by, which for me is always a plus.

Janet and Scott have a nice cozy spot in an impeccably well manicured neighborhood. The bed was comfy - not too firm or too soft. They are both super nice and knowledgeable about the area. We had a wonderful stay. Thanks you two!!
