About Diane Rowley
Charley & Diane have been married 45 years and moved from Montana to Portland 32 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 Mount Tabor
The Garden Cottage 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 a quiet, historic, established neighborhood, and 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 $4 and have a pizza & beer. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby along with city bus stops and MAX light rail access within easy walking distance.

Great for us. Peaceful and we'll equipped. Be
Beautiful, cozy, and accessible.
I enjoyed staying in the Garden apartment. I didn't realize we would be on top of a mountain but waking up to all of the green was refreshing since we were visiting from Arizona. Charley was kind and shared his knowledge of the area as well as the newspaper so we could find some great places to eat. Recommended to anyone who wants to be outside if the city. A real nice neighborhood.
Excellent rental in perfect part of town
We really enjoyed our stay in the garden apartment! It had everything you could want and more! The bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom was equipped with all you could need. There was even cable and Netflix to relax with in the evenings after a long day of sightseeing.. It was a perfect spot to visit Portland! It seems like wherever we wanted to sight see, it was only about 15 minutes away by car. Would highly recommend this place!
Clean, well-organized, thoughtful, and comfortable!
Diane and Charley maintain a guest space that is immaculate, accessible, comfortable, and well-thought-out. We really enjoyed the garden, the heated bathroom floors, the cozy bed, and the well-stocked kitchen. We had a very peaceful stay, and wish we could have stayed longer!
