Welcome! I have a lovely guestroom for two, with a super-comfy memory foam Queen bed. I'm in Portland's eclectic and hip East Bayside neighborhood- home to artists, entrepreneurs, cafes, roasteries, and microbreweries. Just a 20-min walk downtown to enjoy Portland's renowned restaurant scene, nightlife, performing and visual arts venues, historic attractions, and harbor tours. Enjoy the scenic urban trail system, or catch an Island Ferry. So much, so close!
Your bedroom is on the second floor. The bathroom is conveniently located right next to your room, and has body wash, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and extra towels for your use. The bathroom is shared, but I want you to feel like it is your own- I am generally able to work around your schedule. I provide cotton robes for your convenience!
Guests are welcome to use the large, eat-in kitchen, or relax in the living room. Off-street parking is provided in the driveway. Coffee, tea, and light snacks are provided.
Being right in the city, the house is of a modest size, but you should find that you have plenty of privacy. My philosophy is to be totally welcoming and available as needed, but non-intrusive. My personal space is at the other end of the house from yours, so you should feel that you have some "breathing room," and a sound buffer.
I am present during your stay, and am glad to offer suggestions and insider tips for however you wish to spend your time in Portland. I tend to be quite busy, but am always available by phone or text for whatever you may need for making the most of your visit. I provide you with maps of Portland, as well as brochures and magazines with information on nearby restaurants, attractions, and special events.
Check-in is 4pm-9pm, check-out by 11am.
Two friendly cats live here.
No other pets allowed.
Quiet hours 10pm -7am (But of course, feel free to come and go as you wish!)
Only registered guests are permitted on premises.
If you use any dishes or cookware, please clean and place in dishrack.
No candles or open flame permitted.

No pets please - I have two sweet cats who would be horrified!
Please be ready to leave the room by 11am (you may keep your luggage in the enclosed porch if you are spending the day in Portland and want to pick it up by 5pm.)
I am an artist and designer, and have lived in the Portland area for almost 30 years. When hosting, I am most welcoming and helpful, yet respectful of my guests' privacy. I am present during your stay, and am glad to offer suggestions and insider tips for getting the most out of your time in Portland. I tend to be quite busy, but am always available by phone or text.
If I am travelling, it is usually either to visit with family, or to see museums and galleries. I am quiet, reliable, and personable- a low-impact guest who will respect your space!
