THE KINLEY MANOR COACH HOUSE, "Portland's Most Talked About Well-Kept Secret" is an award-winning bright, spacious, furnished, two-level guest home that serves as a great retreat for business people or travelers interested in extended stay lodging.
We, Rupert Kinnard and Scott Stapley, have been the proud owners of The Kinley Manor Coach House since it's construction and official opening in June of 2006. Scott has a background as a mental health therapist and I, Rupert, am a writer/illustrator/cartoonist/graphic designer. I am also a Motown fanatic. I grew up in Chicago, IL and Scott hails from Redding, CA.
During our years as guesthouse owners, Scott and I have enjoyed welcoming people from as close as down the street to people from as far away as Saudi Arabia and Australia. When asked is our place is a Bed & Breakfast Inn, we are fond of responding, "We provide you a bed but if you would like to offer us breakfast, we would consider it."
We are both avid film lovers, frequent live theater, truly enjoy living in Portland and are very active in our community. We absolutely honor all of our guests...especially all of our return visitors.
If we had a motto I would say that it would be: "We don't look at life as having ups and downs. We see it as a series of adventures and challenges."
