15 minutes drive from Downtown Portland but peaceful with lots of space for relaxing. Off street parking, very safe neighborhood, large yard, close to Tryon Creek Park, 5 minutes from Lewis and Clark College, laundry/kitchen available. Private bathroom. One large black friendly cat. This is a non-smoking property.

The space

Whether you are exploring the city or the beautiful region around Portland, you will find a calm, relaxing haven at the end of your day. In summer there are few better place to rest than on the deck in the warm air as the sun sinks behind the trees and the light fades in the rustling of the trees. In winter, a wood fired stove has the sitting room comfortable and cozy. There is high speed internet. There are plenty of books! Microwave and tea kettle available. Use of the kitchen for basic meal preparation is fine, laundry/drier is available for occasional use. Dry British humor lurks around every corner, so beware! This is an ideal stay for a busy person or someone who wants to chill out and doesn't need too much from a host. The room/house could also work for a business trip if you have a car. I am around and can answer basic questions, but am also frequently busy working on projects around the house and yard, out playing in the mountains, or at work.

Guest access

Access is through the door in the carport, and we leave shoes on the tile to preserve carpets.

Interaction with guests

I hike a lot so know the area mountains well and can provide ideas on where to hike and also ideas on day trips. There is a BBQ available for guest to use at no charge, please just clean up after yourselves. High speed wireless internet. Business travelers welcome, there is a slow but functional printer for emergencies and printing boarding passes. I travel a lot and so appreciate the opportunity to come "home" to a comfortable homely room and be able to use the sitting room and other spaces, so that's what I have created.

We needed a room the night before the eclipse and luckily found Kate's place. It is a quiet location and in a good location. Beware that the bed is quite small though.

This was my first airbnb experience. I was very hesitant to stay in someones house, as I love my privacy but this experience exceeded my expectations. Kate was a kind and generous host. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Bathroom was two steps away from room and very clean. Beautiful yard with mature fruit trees and vegetable garden in a queit, safe culdesac. Highly recommend this room!

Kate was a wonderful host. Her home is warm and welcoming and the space is very private. She offers the use of her kitchen, which is excellent for the traveler-on-a-budget. Moreover, she is very kind and very generous! The suburb is a bit of a journey from the city center but public transport is very viable. We highly recommend.

Very welcoming and cozy home, Kate was very friendly, didn't get the chance to talk to her much due to my activities. Very relaxing area, quiet, and peaceful.
