Private studio cottage central to public transportation, restaurants, bars, shopping and several parks. 3/4 bathroom, full-size bed, kitchenette with mini fridge, coffee maker, toaster oven, and microwave. Great neighborhood with free street parking.

The space

The words most used to describe our little detached converted garage studio are
• Adorable
• Awesome location
• Private

This large room is a perfect spot for one or two people who enjoy privacy in an adorable, centrally located studio home. French doors open to the backyard where we have a garden, propane grill, and a picnic table. Amenities include 3/4 bathroom, a full-size bed, and a kitchenesque with mini fridge, coffee maker, kettle, toaster oven, griddle, and microwave.

Guest access

Guests can check in any time after 3 pm, even in the middle of the night. There's no need to knock on our door. Just make yourself right at home in the cottage! Guests will have the private cottage to themselves, but share the backyard with us. You are also free to use the propane grill, fire pit (with advance notice), picnic table, and deck.

Interaction with guests

I live in the main house with my partner who is almost always at work. I tend the garden each day, weather permitting. I'm available any time by text or knocking on the back door to find me. I'm happy to help with ideas for eating, drinking, shopping and exploring, and completely respect all guests' privacy.

Other things to note

We're making new improvements to the Doolittle Cottage little by little all the time. Based on guests' feedback, we've rearranged the furniture to add a cozy love seat couch. We appreciate feedback and more ideas on how to improve the Doolittle cottage!

Couldn't have asked for a better location. A quick walk from the max line. We were anywhere we needed to be with in 20-30mins. Comfy bed and just the right amount of space for sleeping and getting ready for the days adventure.

This little house was perfect for us. There were plenty of cute shops, restaurants, and bars close by. Plus it was super close to several public transit options which made touristing so much easier. The cottage is so cozy and the hosts were awesome. Thanks!!

I have stayed at the Doolittle Cottage once before and had an excellent experience. Likewise, this time was wonderful. The Cottage has great amenities and is within walking distance of many great local shops, food, coffee, and beer. It's also very close to the Portland public transit system, which made for an easy ride to downtown and other areas of Portland. Overall, I would highly recommend to anyone seeking a quaint but central location.

My girlfriend and I had a really great stay at Shanna's place. We felt right at home in her cottage, and enjoyed eating donuts and reading on the sunny deck. Shanna's place has all kinds of eco-friendly touches - we appreciated that she left instructions about how to compost, recycle, and use the water-saving sink. It was educational and easy. The area is quiet enough to relax in, while also being close to plenty of food trucks, cafes, and corner stores. Parking is also easy on that street, and downtown is very accessible.

Cute cottage. Friendly hosts. Within walking distances to bars and restaurants, and a short Uber ride to downtown.
