Built in 1909, visitors say our home has an open, friendly feel. Maybe our TWO CATS add an air of coziness. We are located in inner S.E. Portland in a popular, artsy area within steps of many locally owned restaurants, food carts, unique shops, and 2 bus lines to take you the rest of the city. We have TWO UPSTAIRS BEDROOMS - EAST and WEST that SHARE a large bathroom. We live privately on the main floor with our cats. We look forward to meeting you!

The space

THE ROOMS: Guests stay in one of our 2 upstairs bedrooms - EAST or WEST - and they must be reserved separately. The two rooms SHARE ONE BATHROOM and there are NO COOKING FACILITIES.
The EAST room has a queen bed and a street view.
The WEST room has a double bed and a garden view.
NOTE: If the room you were hoping to reserve does not show up for your dates, it's because it isn't available. We don't charge a cleaning fee, but a 11.5% hotel tax is added along with your Airbnb fee when you book.

The rooms are meant for only 2 guests who share a bed, so it will feel a bit crowded with 3. If you register for 3, the third person has a single sized cot with an air mattress and a foam topper. Some folks find it comfy, others do not. There is an extra charge for a 3rd person or to set up the cot when there are only 2 in the room – a more thorough explanation of cot charges is under the heading, COT CHARGE below.

As mentioned above, these two rooms SHARE ONE BATHROOM with 2 pedestal sinks and a claw foot tub. Each room has a mini-fridge, but NO microwave. We DO NOT SHARE OUR KITCHEN. You can eat take out or cold food in your room, and each room has a table, plates, and silverware, but (to be very clear) there is no place to cook or heat food. Each room has a window AC unit. We provide organic cotton towels and ask that you use our unscented soap, conditioner, and shampoo, or you can bring your own unscented products. We clean the bathroom because you are on vacation!

THE SET UP OF THE HOUSE: We live on the main floor WITH 2 CATS and we keep our living space separate from the guest areas. Our living room and kitchen are NOT SHARED, so there is NO WAY TO COOK OR HEAT YOUR FOOD. Because we keep our living area separate on the main floor, one of our guests said in her review that she appreciated “the sense of privacy and the ability to come and go without feeling like we were disrupting another person’s household.”

From our front door it's only a couple of blocks to dozens of restaurants, food carts, and locally owned shops. Nevertheless, our home is in a quiet neighborhood, and your room will be a peaceful place to relax after a busy day. If you want to explore further, there are 2 major bus lines to the downtown within a few blocks of our house.

COT CHARGE: Please note that when two people register, it is expected that they will share the bed. There is a $10 per night additional charge to set up the cot when there are only 2 people in the room. Let us know in advance that you want the cot set up, and we will send you a "special offer" that includes the set up charge. We charge an additional $30 per night for a third person in the room. To add that charge, just indicate that the reservation is for 3 people. There are no charges for cot set-up or for a third person when it is one child age 4-12 years. There is a maximum of 3 people in a room and that includes children. Sorry, but we do not offer accommodations for children less than 4 years old.

Guest access

Guests are asked to remove their shoes while in the home; freshly laundered slippers are provided. We do not share our personal living space and there are no kitchen or laundry facilities for guests, but we do provide freshly brewed morning coffee in the front hallway. Tea is also available. For breakfast, the area is abundant with locally owned coffee shops, food carts, and restaurants, all within steps from our home, or you can have a cold breakfast in your room. Free street parking is available across from our driveway. No city permit is required.

Interaction with guests

We love meeting new people and we take pleasure in helping you make the most of your visit to our wonderful city. We have made a list of our favorite places to eat – all are close to our home, and we have loads of books, maps, guides, and brochures to help plan your visit to Portland. However, we can also let you explore and discover on your own if that’s your style.

Other things to note

A. Our listing is not set up for the safety of babies and toddlers. Children should be at least 4 y/o.
B. We have 2 friendly CATS, Fiona and Chi Chi, and they roam freely throughout the house.
C. As mentioned several times already, we don't share our personal living space, nor do we share our kitchen.
D. Free street parking is available across from our driveway. No city permit is required. However, DO NOT LEAVE ITEMS VISIBLE IN YOUR CAR day or night, as we sometimes have car break-ins in our neighborhood. If you can’t unload your car into your room, then we suggest that you find a different listing.
E. Both guest rooms have keyless lock pads and you will choose a personal 4-digit code to get you in the front door and also into your room. For everyone's security, these personal codes are entered and erased from the locking systems for each guest's stay.
F. Finally, we are registered as an Accessory Short-Term Rental (ASTR) with the City of Portland as required by law. Our ASTR permit # is 15-226468-000-00-HO.

Ann's place is in a great location. It's really close to Hawthorne but the residential neighborhood is super quiet. The room and bathroom are clean, quiet, and comfortable. It was the first chilly night of the season. I was exhausted and thought I'd be okay as the room was set up but Ann brought out an extra comforter and a space heater with a timer so the room was cozy when I went to sleep but it wouldn't get too hot in the middle of the night. It was perfect. Ann and Lee are super thoughtful hosts. They also provide a cabinet in the bathroom with some extras you might need. I'd flown Frontier and just had my "personal item" size bag so there was no room for extra items. I started to get a blister after walking around the neighborhood in the rain. I was so appreciative to be able to grab a band-aid easily so that the rest of my sightseeing day was pleasant. It was a little thing that made a huge difference in my trip. As I was leaving, I saw that they had a container of duck food that their guests are welcome to take to feed the ducks. I'm sure there are more thoughtful touches that I didn't notice because it was a quick stay. I highly recommend Ann and Lee's place.

Response from Ann:
What a wonderful review. Thank you so much for the kind words and for taking so much time to write such an extensive thank you. It's especially notable since you were only here for one night. You are very kind and as I said in my review of you, I so enjoyed meeting and talking with you. I hope you come back some day. Ann

Great neighborhood! This is the second time we've stayed at the Belmont Hawthorne house and we enjoyed it. The rooms are very clean and have cute decorations. The location of the house is in a quiet neighborhood and walking distance to a lot of shops and food Portland has to offer. Would definitely stay here again in the future!

My husband, Lee, and I are retired and semi-retired. Lee was the finance manager for one of our large local food co-ops and I am teaching English to speakers of other languages. We are both interested in building local economies rooted in sustainability and community. We have 3 cats and neither of us smoke. We enjoy the outdoors, live theater, movies, and the monthly national newsletter "Funny Times." We look forward to meeting you.
