About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

A midcentury gem, this architect designed butterfly roof house is a fun spacious place to stay for your trip to Portland. A full wall of south facing windows keeps the house bright in all seasons. A working fireplace and an open floor plan make for a great area to relax and socialize in. The kitchen has a gas stove, dishwasher and microwave and is well equipped for the gourmet cook. All you need to prepare and serve fine meals: appliances: blender, mixer, toaster, coffee maker, and electric kettle; good knives and high quality silverware, stemware, and dishes. There is also an outdoor dining table and chairs, gas barbeque and a fire pit for warm evenings outside. The yard is fully fenced and well behaved clean pets are welcome.

A large screen tv is connected to both cable and the internet so you can access your Netflix, Hulu, or Pandora accounts or watch something from our DVD library. The house also has high speed wifi for all your connected devices. We put together a large binder of local attractions, menus, and information about the area and provided some books about Portland to read while you are here.

On the main level of the house, adjacent to the bath, is the warm and inviting ochre room. It has two twin beds, a writing desk, and a wall of closets stocked with games for all ages plus plenty of room to hang your wardrobe. Next door the blue sage room feels like a cozy retreat with a luxuriously appointed queen size bed and a large closet for your travel items. The secluded white room is on the lower level and has a queen bed, its own bathroom, and a walkout to a private courtyard. The sofa in the living room pulls out to a queen bed and additional sleeping mats are also available for children. The house is also stocked with a pack and play, high chair, baby gate, and games.

The Butterfly House is centrally located (two blocks from Concordia University), so guests have quick access to the airport and freeways, and are within walking distance to renowned restaurants such as Beast, DOC, Cocotte, Yakuza, Autentica, and all the independent, locally owned shops and eateries of the Alberta Arts District.
There are two buslines that stop within a block of the house, one goes directly downtown and the other takes passengers across the eastside through Hollywood and Hawthorne neighborhoods. The house also sits on a bicycle route that connects to picturesque paths along the river and to routes throughout the city.

Thirty day minimum.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My family and I are all transplants from the midwest, but Portland has been home to us for over 15 years. We enjoy the food diversity here and the beauty of the natural spaces that are all around and within the city. Architecture and design are favorite passtimes for us, so we loved restoring this house and are happy to share it.
