I built this small lovely sleeping cottage in 2008. It gives guests 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 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
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.
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.
My husband and I loved Terry's cottage! It's very unique in design and also very comfortable and relaxing. We came and went and the cottage was perfect the hideaway from the mainstream. We kept some breakfast, snacks and drinks in the refrigerator, ready to take on the road. There's a coffee bean press for making some fresh, hot coffee. All idea amenities. AND, you'll love Terry! Bright and cheery and funny! Very accommodating too!
Anyone coming to Portland should stay at the Everett Street Guesthouse. My husband and I stayed in the lower-level apartment, and it was cozy yet spacious, well-appointed, and private. Terry is a great host, and provided us with some excellent dining recommendations. The bed is super comfortable, soft enough for my husband and firm enough for me. The neighbourhood is fantastic, and Terry provides a handy booklet of all nearby amenities. We felt so at home...we were tempted to move in permanently!
Terry was very friendly and accommodating. The cottage was everything we expected and more. We definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a cute place to stay with shops/restaurants and public transportation very close by. Thanks Terry!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Everett Street Guesthouse. We stayed in the cottage that is detached from the house. First, the whole property is beautifully maintained. The cottage is no exception! It was beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped! Although we were only there for 2 nights, it really felt like a home away from home and quiet refuge from the city! Terri was wonderful and made sure that we had everything we needed for our stay. Next time we come to Portland, we know where we will be staying!
My husband and I were visiting Portland for the 1st time after my daughter and her husband moved there for Grad school. We totally lucked out finding the "Cottage" 2 blocks from their apartment. It is lovely and has everything you need! We were pleasantly surprised that there were even morning breakfast treats along with coffee and juice! The owner lives on site so if you need anything, she is there to help. The bed, hands down, is one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept in....very nice linens and lots of blankets. We highly recommend.....we will be back for sure!
We had an amazing stay at the Everett Street Guesthouse this past Christmas Holiday. It far exceeded my expectations. I was surprised at the cleanliness, newness, and tasteful decor of the main house and cottage.
We stayed at the Cottage, which by the way does not adequately describe the space. When I think of cottage, I think of old, quaint, detached space. Yes, the space is detached from the main house, but it is not old nor quaint. It is luxurious and tasteful. Everything from the art to the furnishings is regal. I could not imagine staying anywhere else!
The property owner is an amazing and gracious host. She's very personable and makes you feel truly at home.
Worried about the distance to downtown/pearl district from the guesthouse. You shouldn't be. The 20 Tri Met bus is a mere three short blocks from the residence. Ti-Met offers fast/safe frequent service to the downtown core. With buses running every 10 to 15 minutes, it's only a 10 minute bus ride to downtown. Also, the neighborhood offers plenty of dining options if you choose to stay closer to "home'. I would recommend LeVante. It's a world class dining experience, steps away from the guesthouse and cottage.
Kerns is a lovely neighborhood that's only 5 minutes across the Burnside Bridge to downtown, yet quiet and residential. A few minutes walk takes you to NE 28th, known as 'restaurant row', as well as Laurelhurst Movie Theater, $4.00 to get in and food and beer--what's not to like?
