About Linda Olson

I love to travel and have stayed in vacation rental by owner properties in many places in the US as well as international locations.

Why Linda Olson chose Portland

My inspiration for Ladds cottage was to create the quintessential Portland guest house experience in my home for the enjoyment and comfort of people visiting our fair city.

We spent a long weekend and found the house to be everything we wanted: clean, comfortable and easy access to sites in and around Portland. Further, the owner was very accommodating when our plans changed at the last minute. We would definitely stay there on our next trip to Portland and highly recommend it to others.

Cute little cottage

  • 3 of 5

This cottage is in a quiet neighborhood with very narrow streets. The house is older but with some upgrades. The day we arrived Portland was 100 degrees and the cottage does not have air conditioning, only 2 fans. The 2 main bedrooms and bath were fine, good shower pressure. I would not recommend staying in the basement bedroom as there was a musty smell. Using the bathroom was fine. It is also kind of dingy and dark. We did not stay long enough to get the lay of the land as far as convenience. Overall it was ok. Linda was very nice and helped us get settled.

Great location for my visit. Nicely appointed house with a sweet patio to enjoy mornings and evening

  • 4 of 5

Biggest downside was that we were there on a very hot weekend, no air conditioning, not unusual for Portland, but all the windows in the living room and dining room are unopenable due to installed storm windows making these common rooms uncomfortably warm.

lovely, cozy home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, cozy home in a wonderful neighborhood. Convenient location in family friendly and charming neighborhood. Two nice bedrooms with comfortable queen beds upstairs and an apartment style room downstairs bedroom with a queen bed and a twin ..with its own bathroom. Be sure to have a fan if it gets above 80 degrees, as all homes in Portland can get quite stuffy and warm even with the house fan that does help circulate the cool air from the basement. The stairs to the basement would not be great for small children as they are steep and do enjoy the small patio space off of the main bedroom. Kitchen has everything you need and the neighbors are young families that would likely appreciate quiet, respectful visitors. Thank you Linda for helping me with some communication challenges originating with VRBO. Linda is responsive and very helpful without intruding at all.

Perfect home away! Great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here in Portland! We loved this house! Comfortable; nice patio; nice music. Walked to Genie's for brunch (great b Mary's (basil my fav)) and great food, nice wine selection at Shell gas station, food at Teote's was delicious! Hot Lips pizza and salad delivery was so convenient and so very very tasty. Ford Food & Co - last day there. Homey soup and tuna melt with tap beers!

Would most definitely stay here again if ever back in the cool blue city of Portland.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was nice, clean and quiet. We loved the location! There was some confusion over how to get into the house (the instructions were all on the app and this was the first time I had to use it to access a house) but I was able to get Linda's number from guest services and we got it all straightened out. Linda was very responsive to text messages. We would certainly stay there again.
