Our quiet and beautiful 1909 cottage home offers privacy and comfort for your perfect getaway. We have meticulously renovated, with an eye to balance the charm of the original house and the conveniences of a modern home. The result is a stunning, well lit space, a bedroom featuring a 100 year-old wood ceiling and french doors opening to a garden and deck, a spa-like bathroom with extra deep 6' tub beside a custom glass and tile shower enclosure, and an open plan kitchen/living area, well-outfitted and ready to take advantage of Portland's local and organic food culture. We also offer car charging for guests driving electric cars, with the 40A Tesla charger in our driveway.
Nestled in the heart of the vibrant Alberta Arts neighborhood, you are walking distance to some of Portland's best restaurants (Beast, Ciao Vito, Pine State, Expatriate, Bernie's, Yakuza, Bollywood Theater, Autentica, DOC, La Bonita, Bella Faccia and more), wine (Everyday Wine, Bin21), coffee houses (Barista, Caffe Vita, Extracto), bakeries and breakfast joints (Big Egg, Random Order, Le Petit Provence, Back to Eden), boutiques featuring clothing, shoes, books, music, chocolates, home furnishings and lighting, and of course, the many art galleries and the monthly Last Thursday art walk and street fair. Access to two major transit lines within one block of the cottage and easy off-street parking make visiting the rest of Portland simple as well.
The home features sustainable bamboo floors, custom ironwork details produced by the artisan-owners, unusual antique furnishings, as well as 42' flat panel TV, free wireless broadband, spacious full size kitchen with gas range, dishwasher, and private laundry facility. The queen bed makes the space best suited for one or two adults, but the addition of a pack'n'play or air mattress can accomodate children or friends.

Portland is our kind of town. After fleeing the urban sprawl of California over a decade ago, we made a new life in PDX for ourselves and our 2 kids. He's a blacksmith. She's a Certified Athletic Trainer. Together, we own and manage a few rental properties and remodel our home. When the small, cute house next door went up for sale, we just couldn't pass it up. We also like cheese.
Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Concordia
The reviews say it all: the cottage is a quiet, cozy home-away-from-home, extremely close to great food and entertainment, and with easy access to the rest of the city via car or public transportation. We live in the same neighborhood, because it balances the energy of city living with the peace and comfort of a small town.

It's always a pleasure.
I have stayed at That Blue Cottage many times. It suits my need for a small space with a bed/bath area separated from the combined kitchen/living room and laundry machines. I always appreciated my dealings with the owners.
Sweet comfortable cottage!
We cannot say enough about That Blue Cottage! From the owners very warm welcome to the comfort and conveniences of home we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very conveniently located with in walking distance to restaurants and cute shops. Mark has done an amazing job renovating the cottage with every detail paid attention to. We will be back and highly recommend this gem.
Warm and cozy. Close to Alberta.
Great Place in a Great Location
Cozy, comfortable and provides everything. Would definitely stay again!
I stay in That Blue Cottage often, and for good reason
The space always is clean and neat when I arrive. The bed's comfortable. The bathroom, always well-kept up, is full-sized, and has a tub and a shower stall. The bedroom is quite separated from the living room/ kitchen area. Those latter two areas are part of a single space but seem comfortably different.There is an easily-used washer/dryer set with all the detergent one would need in a short stay, but at least a week.
Dealing with the owners, who live right next door, is easy. One is left alone.
My review, like my stay, is always 5 stars.
