About Terry Rusinow
I built this small lovely sleeping cottage in 2008. It gives guests privacy, as well as their own kitchenette, private garden, and larger shared deck.. 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 I enjoy hosting people from all over the world. I enjoy kayaking, bicycling, movies and cooking, travel, exploring Portland.. .
Terry Rusinow purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Terry Rusinow chose Kerns
A great place to call home while visiting the Portland area. Guests always say how great it is after a day of sightseeing, to have a quiet, relaxed place that isn't just a hotel room, to enjoy. Also the neighborhood has so much to offer, from movie theater to park to great restaurants...all within a 4 block radius, yet has a quiet, peaceful setting where you can relax after a busy day. Two comfortable chairs, queen sized bed, kitchenette and tiled shower.
What makes this Cottage unique
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 else can you get Cuban, Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean, New Orleans, Southern, Chinese, Japanese, Vegan Peruvian and artisan pizza in one location? Plus the Laurelhurst Movie Theater is a must, and you can buy food, 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.
