Superhost rated offering one bedroom With private bath; cozy home with one cat named Bella. We are in No. Portland within quiet neighborhood, conveniently 8 miles from PDX and 1.6 mi. from U. of Portland. Organic coffee/tea available. Two blocks from Arbor Lodge Park; close to cafes/grocers: New Seasons Market, Green Zebra Grocer and Fred Meyer are all nearby. Great family neighborhood.
Easy downtown on MAX light rail/bus or 10 minute drive to downtown (with no traffic) on Interstate 5.

The space

Bedroom has slider door that leads outside to relax in my lovely backyard.
Meditation garden with water fountain for a quiet outside space is available. This is a lovely 1920's remodeled home with wonderful features.

Guest access

You'll have access to morning coffee/tea in my kitchen and food storage in the refrigerator. I prefer no cooking but heating up foods is fine.

Interaction with guests

Maps and guide books are available and I am happy to help you find your way around. Right in my neighborhood there are numerous ethnic restaurants in easy walking distance: Thai, Japanese, Mexican, Italian, paleo,
southern style and more. Of course downtown restaurants have some of the best cuisines in the country!

Other things to note

Easy access to Interstate 5. Located 8 miles from Portland Airport. Also close to Vancouver, WA (3 miles). The Columbia River Gorge with its scenic highway is a must see for some visitors. It is an easy 45 minute drive to view spectacular waterfalls, hiking trails and scenic vistas.( The Gorge is currently closed due to recent fire). The Rose Garden is nearby as well as the world famous Japanese Gardens and Chinese Garden in Chinatown. Mt Hood is one hour away and worth the trip to see Timberline Lodge, chair lifts, hiking and snow sports if you like.

Pamela is a very kind person who makes you feel comfortable and welcome in her north Portland home. Nice room and comfortable bed with access to the patio and backyard. Use of your own bathroom, extras like morning coffee and plums off her own tree, and the sweetest kitty! Nice neighborhood with easy access. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Thank you for making me feel at home Pamela!

My life is quiet as a semi-retired professional living in a lovely neighborhood in North Portland. My passion is teaching and facilitating lively discussions. Taking walks/hikes into the northwest hiking trails is a favorite. Gardening is my hobby as you will see if you stay. My specialty is good wholesome fresh food which Portland is noted for. I have one adult cat named Bella who is friendly and a love to cat lovers.
I like meeting interesting intelligent people and love to share travel stories.
My life motto is "Create the life you truly want now".
