West Hills cottage description

Quaint 1926 Portland Cottage-recently added to the National Register of Historic Places. comments: 'adorable', 'idyllic', 'magical', 'peaceful and relaxing'. Newly restored and renovated: hardwood floors, original wood burning fireplace, period molding and fixtures, a brand new fully equipped kitchen including a Nespresso coffee maker, and a NW Native Garden designed by Habitat Restoration NW outside your bedroom window! Centrally located in SW Hills, on bus line, steps from Vista Spring Cafe, The Heights Antiques, Ainsworth Elementary School (you will hear the laughter of children on school days), and miles of hiking trails. Within walking distance of Portland's NW 23rd St (featuring some of the cities trendiest restaurants, brew pubs and boutique shops), Strohecker's market, Washington Park (with its Zoo and Rose Garden), Jen Weld stadium (home of the Portland Timbers and Thorns soccer teams) and Forest Park (the largest natural urban forest reserve in the U.S, with 5000 acres of hiking trails) An easy commute to OHSU and Beaverton.
Vista Cottage is the perfect home base for a business executive looking for a hotel alternative, a couple on holiday, or anyone looking to immerse themselves in Portland life and culture. Thanks to all past and future guests of Vista Cottage I will be donating 10% of proceeds in 2014 to the Portland Rescue Mission- Burnside Shelter in Old Town.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: The Vista Cottages caught my attention 15 yrs ago...

                      Why the Owner Chose West Hills:
                      Fred Leeson for the Oregonian: Nothing tells us what Iver Bohnsen was thinking when he set about developing an 8500 sq foot lot in upscale Portland Heights in 1926. The German born grocer had opened Portland Heights Grocery (now Vista Spring Cafe). He knew that the current houses in the neighborhood were...(large)... and that his customers and neighbors opposed apartment buildings and commercial buildings in their hilly, affluent neighborhood. But he also knew that Portland's population was booming...From the outset, the small one bedroom houses were popular rentals for singles, young couples and widows. Now the five tiny units bear the distinction that many of the far larger neighbors do not: as a recent addition to the National Register of Historic Places. Robert Mawson, vice president of Heritage Consulting, helped compile history to support the registry nomination. 'We have been doing this for 25 years, and to our knowledge there isn't any other complex like this in the city', he says.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The cottages were born...five of the tiniest homes almost anywhere in town...'pocket houses' of the 20's
