              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: I built this small lovely sleeping cottage to add another accommodation to my existing small B & B on the same property. It gives guests a bit more privacy, as well as their own kitchenette, private garden, etc. I moved to Portland from California in 2004, where I ran a craft gallery for 10 years. I opened my inn in Portland in 2006 and have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. I specialize in women travelers, but have hosted many parents of grown children who live in Portland, folks coming for special events or classes. I enjoy kayaking, bicycling, movies and cooking. I'm a big sister to a little 10 year old girl with big Sisters/Big Brothers.

              Why the Owner Chose Kerns:
              I added this cottage to my existing property to have a more private place for people to stay.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              While I didn't purposely seek out this neighborhood when looking to buy a house, it just happened, and I'm so glad it did. Kerns isn't a very well known neighborhood, but it's walking distance to Laurelhurst and Buckman areas, which are better known. Only 4 blocks to NE 28th street, which is a restaurant/cafe mecca in NE Portland. Where can you get Cuban, Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean, New Orleans, Southern, Chinese, Japanese and artisan pizza in one location? Plus the Laurelhurst Movie Theater is a must, only $4.00 to get in and you can buyfood, beer/wine in the theater. And Laurelhurst Park is a mere 1/2 mile away and is one of the most beautiful parks in the area.
