"This property was gorgeous and plenty of space for 4-6 people. Very cozy and comfortable. Place is very neat and clean. For those who like to stay indoors and cook your own meals this place is perfect. If not there are great restaurants near by. Although it is not super close to the places we ventured off to, it is relatively close driving/biking distance to other little neighborhoods. I would definitely recommend staying here with some friends or family getaway. I wish there were just bikes on the property for use!"Guest: Christine Date of Stay: November 2013 Review Submitted: November 14, 2013View listing
"Our family of 6 stayed here for a few days for our daughter's graduation from Lewis & Clark College. It was close to the college and a short drive to downtown. House is on a quiet residential street, but we walked to the nearby grocery store and the brewery/restaurant. The house is older with character, but with modern amenities. The only negative would be that the showers in the bathroom were rather tight, but that's pretty typical in older homes. We managed just fine and my husband is 6 ft tall."Guest: gracieg Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 22, 2014View listing
"This was a wonderful place to stay. I took a one week bike course at UBI. The location was easy biking and even walking distance to class. The cottage itself was uniquely pleasant, enough for up to two people. It has everything you need. It is bright and airy. Sam and Stephanie were very accommodating. Mississippi District is close by with great restaurants, cafes, and shops. I enjoyed getting cappuccinos everyday at the Albina Press. I would definitely stay again."Guest: Christopher M.

"First of all, the owner, James, responded quickly to the booking request. Much appreciated. The condo is in probably the best part of Portland, with lots to see and do. Many grocery stores, restaurants, and museums within walking distance. The condo is clean, well kept, quiet, and comfortable. This is my go-to stop for visits to Portland. As to the trains nearby, we were out most of the day, but noise was not an issue. Train noise was no problem in the evening, never heard it. Thank you James."Guest: Nancee G.
