This is a quiet, friendly 5 bedroom 2 bath shared home with washer, dryer, high-speed WiFi, shared kitchen, living room, porch, yard, etc.
We are a block off Alberta Street with some of the BEST bakeries, espresso shops, restaurants and bars within a few blocks from the house. The bus stop across the street arrives downtown in about 20 minutes. FANTASTIC LOCATION.
The rooms are mostly all rented through airbnb or (website hidden) as a guest house for people looking for a short term stay while visiting or looking for longer term housing.
This room is an airy, funky, mostly remodeled basement space with a couch, coffee table, full size bed, 3 large windows, and is more separate from all the other rooms in the house.
The home is a laid-back, relaxed environment, a shared housing environment verses a Bed and Breakfast. The house is definitely a cosmetic fixer, funky old Portland home, and everyone loves the house with its open floor plan, 70s remodel retro charm, and many gigantic windows bringing the house a LOTS of light.
As the host, I came to Portland in 1992 to attend Lewis and Clark College and ended up staying in town ever since. I know the area well and have great restaurant suggestions, etc. I also enjoy spending time and getting to know guests personally, when there is time, love to go out for coffee, beverage, etc.
If you are looking for a hotel or BnB environment, this is definitely not the best fit. If you would like more of a rustic, relaxed, friendly home, this is for you! I look forward to meeting you and Welcoming you to Portland!!!
It is always a great idea to call me after booking the room to answer any questions or concerns and so we can chat and get you more acquainted.
Check in is after 3pm unless you have made prior arrangements otherwise. You can give me a call when on your way, and also let me know approximate ETA ahead of time.

The house echoes quite a bit so for the downstairs rooms, we ask everyone to be aware of noise especially in the kitchen or downstairs areas... After 10pm and before 10am especially. There are keys available to the rooms in case you would like to lock your room, and due to so many coming and going, we usually leave the house open so nobody ends up locked out.
Please contact me early on if you think you may have any questions or concerns or if you tend to be sensitive in shared housing situations. I would be glad to go over all details and make sure this is the right fit for you.
I look forward to welcoming you to Portland!!!
Welcome to Portland!
I moved here from my small hometown in NH when I was 18 to go to Lewis and Clark College in 1992. I have lived here since and have loved the Alberta neighborhood and this house for over 10 years. I know all the great spots!
I recently just had an adorable little baby girl Rachel and moved in with boyfriend when we were pregnant.
My good friend Joel lives at the house and helps me manage things and I am always available by text or phone call to help with anything.
