Best Vacation Rental Ever!
Best Vacation Rental Ever!
My husband and I stayed here for six days in April 2012, and loved it! The cottage is both functional and beautiful, with everything you need -- including a washer and dryer! -- for a private, restful stay. We came by train and never needed a car, thanks to the cottage's convenient location for both walking and taking the bus to a wide range of Portland eateries and other attractions. We'll definitely return to this lovely, comfortable place!

Had a family wedding to attend in Portland and stayed at the guest house cottage. Charming and MINUS the frills - a comfortable, contemporary, well appointed space and private too. After 3 days the place felt like home. -Denise A.

Owner response: Thanks so much--enjoyed having you both here! Terry
I stayed here for 5 nights in mid-October, 2009, and was very pleased with the cottage. It was in a great location - grocery store, movie theatre, shopping all within walking distance, plus close to Portland's incredible public transit system. The cottage itself was very well-equipped and comfortable, and having 2 outside spaces was very nice. I recommend it for a couple, or for a single person.

We stayed a week here and found it to be a very relaxing oasis within the city - seclusion with a lovely garden area, 2 patios, sounds of rushing water and birds. The inside of the cottage is also very nice, it has a great location, and the innkeeper is dedicated to giving you the very best service.

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.
