About Diane Rowley

Charley & Diane have been married 42 years and moved from Montana to Portland 29 years ago where they have raised their 3 children. They enjoy welcoming guests from all over the world in the private apartment behind their home, overlooking the garden.

Diane Rowley purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Diane Rowley chose Portland

The Garden Apartment is a comfortable, clean, light-filled, refuge with a peaceful garden view..... a great place to hang out or come back to after a day of exploring the Portland area, or visiting family. It has everything you need....a home away from home.

What makes this apartment unique

This location is in an historic established neighborhood, has excellent access to the many amenities of Portland and its surroundings. It is a beautiful short walk to the historic Mt. Tabor Park and easy access to anywhere in the city or hikes in the Colombia Gorge. Only two blocks to the neighborhood coffee shop and restaurant and a few more to the neighborhood theater where you can see a movie for $3 and have a pizza & beer. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby.

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while visiting Portland to meet our new grandchild. The garden apartment was in a fantastic location, easily accessible and nearby our daughter, her husband and their newborn baby. We were so pleasantly surprised by every detail and touch in this beautiful apartment! The space was comfortable, very well supplied, and had an incredibly pleasant garden space and outdoor area. We had everything we needed from amenities in the kitchen, bathroom - and were happy to be surprised by the washer/dryer and hot tub. We would definitely stay here again. Can't say enough lovely things. The hosts are incredibly welcoming to share this little oasis.

Perfect Garden Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Diane and Charlie have a wonderful oasis for guests to enjoy during their stay. Diane makes one of the best granolas I've had and I finished it all!

They are the perfect hosts and everything was well marked, clean, and stocked. Since my daughter lives in Portland, I'll be coming back. Just loved it!

Beautifully comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This secluded apartment was a wonderful place to come back to after a day of exploration. The location was convenient and easy to find, and once we followed the all-encompassing "turn left on Burnside", the whole city was ours! Diane's granola was a delicious way to start each morning. I'd recommend the Garden Apartment to anyone.

Fantastic!!! x 1,000 :)

  • 5 of 5

This mother-in-law style bungalow in Tabor (10-15 minutes from downtown depending on traffic) was an absolute gem for our recent spring break in Portland. It is well appointed, clean, comfortable, and in a safe/convenient neighborhood. The owners of the property, Diane & Charley, are accommodating, responsive and just great people overall. We ended up changing our plans a bit due to weather and spent less time on the coast. Diane allowed me to extend our stay and come back for the last two days of our trip. Coming back was like coming home, and was a lodging relief after best western hopping for three nights.

Thanks again Diane, we sincerely appreciate your great hospitality.
