Your home away from home includes your own suite of 2 bedrooms, a beautiful kitchen & living area, & bathroom. The home is in a quiet, safe & friendly neighborhood with scenic hiking trails just out the back door. There are several shopping complexes less than 2 miles away. Amenities include high end linens, HD cable pkg, broadcast networks, Netflix & Amazon Prime. 5 min off of I-5 freeway, approx. 15 min to downtown Portland, 10 min to Lewis & Clark college.
We are conveniently located just 15 minutes from downtown Portland (can be longer during rush hour) and only 5 minutes from freeway access. As we are centrally located, Mt. Hood skiing, the Columbia River gorge and the Willamette Valley wine country are all only about one hour away - just in different directions! The central location and great neighborhood is a huge draw as to why people want to live here!
The suite is a great setting for both business & leisure travelers with high speed WiFi.
Relax and enjoy a private secluded wing in the lower level of our home. (We live on the upper level.) The space includes two bedrooms, a private bath and a beautiful kitchen with granite counter tops, cherry cabinets, hardwood floors, and stainless appliances (dishwasher, gas range, and full size refrigerator and lots of counter space!)
The great room is voice controlled with digital lighting so if you want to turn on any of the lights, you just speak the command! "Turn on Kitchen lights, 50%!" The good old fashioned light switches work as well!
We request that our guests sleep on the beds provided (not on the sofa). If a third bed is desired (floor mattress or camping pad), there is an additional $25 per night fee.
The upper level of our home is air-conditioned, but the lower level (where your suite is located) is not air-conditioned. After staying with us (even on a super hot day), you will see why it is not needed!
The property is in a safe, quiet neighborhood, yet centrally located in the greater Portland area.
There are five steps at the separate entrance that you will be using. So, the space is not handicap accessible. For guests who stay longer, you are welcome to share our washer and dryer. Private off street parking is provided.
We hope you will have the opportunity to sit out on your deck and enjoy the beauty, the peaceful surroundings and the sounds of nature! It can be refreshing to the soul.
Interaction with guests
We love to greet our guests upon arrival and be available to answer any questions. We want this to be a place you will always want to return to. However, since your space is on the lower part of the home (with a separate entrance) and we live on the upper level, if you want your privacy, we may not see you at all!
