About the property

Spacious one bedroom apartment

The Everett Street Guesthouse has 2 accommodations-- a separate entrance, private lower level one bedroom apartment and a separate studio cottage (VRBO Listing #198587) Both have their own bathroom, entrance, air conditioning, heat, washer/dryer and kitchenette. The lower level apartment has a window in the bedroom looking out to the side garden, and another window in the dining area. There's a t.v. with Netflix and DVD player with dvd selections, but no cable. The studio cottage has cable t.v. and dvds. Located on the same property, they're only blocks from NE 28th Ave's "restaurant row", movie theater, park and public transportation. I Recently closed the rooms in the inn, and now offer these two wonderful accommodations for your visit to Portland. See trip advisor for many reviews under Everett Street Guesthouse. Please Note: There are stairs with a railing down to the apartment, so if you have any problems going up and down stairs, please consider renting the cottage or another rental.

About Terry Rusinow

I moved to Portland in 2004 from Healdsburg, California, where I had a gallery of ethnic and American Crafts for 12 years. Before that I had lived in Mendocino, CA. where I worked for a coffee company developing their mail order department, as well as having a jazz radio show and bringing live jazz concerts to the area. I ran the Bed and Breakfast on this property, but after 10 years, have decided to enjoy my home and now offer 2 private accommodations on the property.. I enjoy kayaking, bird watching, travel, movies and cooking.

Terry Rusinow purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Terry Rusinow chose Kerns

I love Portland, and in particular, love this extremely quiet, yet urban, neighborhood. It's perfect for someone visiting Portland, as it's a neighborhood, yet so close to tons of restaurants, cafes, movies, parks and transportation. It's only minutes across the Burnside Bridge to the Pearl District, downtown, etc. I've made both accommodations simple, comfortable and cozy with great outside areas during the Spring and Summer months to enjoy.

What makes this apartment unique

Staying in the apartment or cottage has the benefit of giving you a place to come home to that's not an impersonal motel or hotel. It's your home away from home while you're here with all the comforts of home. I'm on the property to help you with anything you may need--from where to eat, to renting bicycles, to helping with any questions you may have.

Wow, what a nice place!

  • 5 of 5

Terry has been in the hospitality business for a while, and she's thought of everything to make her guests comfortable and happy: coffee, great movies and books, info about the area, etc. She's very easy to reach if you have any questions, and gave us a tour when we arrived. The basement apartment is near to a couple bus routes and some good restaurants. (I loved the food cart pod at 28th and Ankeny, especially the Israeli mint lemonade and sabich.) Thanks, Terry!

Well appointed room in great area

  • 5 of 5

Terry's lower level apartment was very comfortable, and the kitchen was very well appointed with all types of snacks (Cereal, english muffins, coffee, etc). The neighborhood was very safe and within walking distance to many restaurants and bars - also close to the major highways.

About 20 minutes from PDX. I would definitely stay here again!
