About this listing
My loft is on Main street in Old Town Battle Ground close to Old Town Battle Grounds coffee shop and deli 2 doors down on one side, and a yoga studio 2 doors down on the other side. You'll love Old Town with it's 6 antique stores, restaurants, and a skate park all within several blocks, and the Battle Ground Lake State Park and Moulton falls, just a short drive. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers, And under 1/2 an hour to Portland airport!
Our loft is a fully contained private space, with it's own entrance, and includes a small kitchen, and private bath. Although we are right on Main Street, the entrance is through the back garden, with lots of privacy, and is very quiet. The property is above my own living space, with my medical clinic and herbal apothecary being separate buildings on the same lot. The loft is stocked with art and craft supplies if you feel like painting, beading, or sewing, and a large 10 by 10 foot deck is yours to relax on. The space is inviting, comfortable, and artsy, with a skylight, wifi, TV, and all the basics. The bed is a brand new memory foam futon that is really comfy! There is a spare memory foam mattress in the closet if needed.
You will have your own space, and given the code for the door pin pad to come and go as you wish. I am not much of a night owl, so if you are arriving after 10 pm, we will need to make arrangements, such as getting you the code, or leaving the door open for you.
Interaction with guests
I work on the premises 9 to 5 and can usually get away for lunch and short breaks to interact with guests if I am needed. I am happy to chat and cook together, or just give you your space and peace and quiet, as desired. I like to work out in my yard after work, and we often eat on the back patio during nice weather. You would be welcome to join us!
Other things to note
Because this is a loft, the ceiling is sloped throughout. Access to the space is up a flight of out door stairs, so is not suitable for wheelchairs - sorry! So that we can keep our prices low, we kindly request that guest fully clean up after themselves. We will wash the sheets and towels, if you would please strip the bed. We also request the guests take out the trash regularly to avoid completely filling our garbage can upon termination of longer stays, such that there is no room for our own garbage. (This has happened) We also kindly request that guest use the recycle bins for paper, glass, metal, plastic, as we care about the environment!
Guest are asked to clean up FULLY after themselves: Strip the bed, Clean bathroom, Kitchen, Sweep, and take out the trash. We will bring up a vacuum and additional cleaning supplies as needed. We will launder the sheets and towels at the end of the visit. There is a laundry mat in town if guests need to wash their clothes.
If a guest brings a pet, we ask to inspect the premises 24 hours before the scheduled departure, to insure that there is no damage nor odors, and return the deposit.
Because we sleep in rooms below the loft, we appreciate quiet time after 10 pm.

I am an earthy, scholarly, plant-loving, earth warrior, with an interest in herbal medicine, health, and spiritual development for myself and the planet at large. My little loft is affiliated with Battle Ground Healing Arts, where I practice medicine a few days a week, and run a natural medicine apothecary a few more days. I also write and research for professional medical journals and teach natural products chemistry around the country. I have been studying ethnobotany and shamanism in the Peruvian Amazon for the last 12 years, and lead ethnobotany field courses into the jungle each July.
