About this listing
350 sq. ft. studio w/ an Asian flare. Heated floors, air conditioned, privacy, side patio, shared large deck, tiled shower, flatscreen t.v. Kitchenette. All the comforts of home. Occasional spontaneous happy hour on back deck during summer months!
Guests love the space--it's peaceful, quiet, everything you'll need for a comfortable stay. Please note: there is no cooktop in the kitchenette--but everything else for light food prep--microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, hot water maker, sink, dishes, etc. The space feels larger due to light and high ceilings and windows out to patios. Kitchenette provides lots of things to get you started--coffee beans, teas, sugar/salt/pepper/vinegar/oil, English muffins, butter, breakfast cereal, snacks, and much more!
Guests access the cottage through the garage. They will have access to the larger deck of my home, as well as their own private patio area. There is a washer/drier in the cottage as well as iron/ironing board. Access to their own private 2 patio areas as well as a shared (with my other airbnb apartment) larger deck with tables/chairs. Use of washer dryer in cottage for guests staying 4 nights or more or small fee if less than 4 nights.
Interaction with guests
Once you check in with owner, you'll be free to come and go as you please. If you need anything however, I live in the front house. But you will have complete privacy.
The Kerns neighborhood is a great "close-in" neighborhood that's only minutes from downtown, yet quiet and urban. It's walking distance to great restaurants, cafes, movie theater, public transportation and gorgeous park. Plenty of on street parking.
The #20 or #12 bus on East Burnside or NE Glisan will take you downtown in a matter of minutes.
Other things to note
Wonderfully quiet and peaceful, yet only blocks to hip NE 28th Ave.'s "restaurant row" with tons of bars, cafes, restaurants, food carts, micro-restaurants from which to choose. Comfortable new queen mattress. Lots of bed pillows to choose from as well.

I've lived in Portland 11 years now and have very much enjoyed being an innkeeper. The separate cottage is rented mostly to people who want a bit more privacy, private bathroom, etc. though the separate basement apartment has its own entrance, bathroom, etc. I've lived in D.C., Boston, California and Oregon. I've run a retail craft gallery, been a veterinarian assistant, concert promoter, D.J. worked in the coffee industry and Innkeeper among other jobs. I love playing hostess to folks wanting a great place to stay while visiting Portland. This is a wonderfully quiet neighborhood but close to everything. I am an avid kayaker, love movies, cooking, trying new restaurants, books, nature lover.
