About the Property

One Bedroom (sleeps 3)

The Colony is a mid-century colonial icon in St. Johns. The property features two fully furnished, stylishly decorated apartments designed to make your stay in the Pacific Northwest inspiring and comfortable. Units can be rented separately, together or in conjunction with any of the adjacent multi-use spaces that make up The Colony.

The Colony is a fully-functioning event space which includes creative office, work and presentation rooms, a commercial commissary kitchen and a movement arts studio.
The apartments are private rooms located on the second floor of the building, however you will enter through the main door and foyer, before following the hallway upstairs. Please be aware, there is no elevator onsite, stairs only. Please note, it is possible that a class or small event could be taking place on the first floor of The Colony during your stay. We will let you know prior to booking if we have something scheduled in one our first floor creative spaces during the dates you request.

The 'Landing Pad,' is a freshly redesigned, mid-century inspired, one-bedroom apartment with plenty of room to cook, dine and entertain in style. A large eat-in kitchen with vintage charm and a chic, open dining/living space make it an excellent home base for longer stays. The bedroom is airy, yet private, looking out towards huge Douglas Firs and year-round greenery. You'll sleep well in a high-quality, queen-sized bed with luxury linens. The full bathroom features a tub/shower combo. In the living room, a sleek Danish daybed makes room for a third guest to sleep comfortably.

The second unit is a two bedroom called 'Bones & Arrows' and is listed separately on this site:

Car: Recommended

St. Johns strikes a dynamic balance between Portland and Not-Portland. It is close to the city but feels like a small town. The Colony is 25 minutes from PDX airport and 15 minutes from downtown Portland, a stone’s throw from numerous cafes and bars, supermarket, movie theater and live music venues. Just across the beautiful St. Johns bridge you’ll find Forest Park and Sauvie Island, two of the area’s most famous areas for cycling, hiking and birdwatching.


Owner info

About the owner: Originally from Staten Island, NY - I'm a mom, restaurant owner and real-estate developer with a background in the arts. I've lived in this neighborhood since moving to Portland in 1996 when I opened a mixed-use art and performance space just in NE Portland. I currently own Yakuza, Nonna & DOC restaurants, Dash, a commissary kitchen and now The Colony.

Why the Owner Chose St. Johns, Portland, OR, USA:
Portland is legendary for cutting-edge thinking in everything from art to fashion to cuisine to outdoor adventure, which makes it the perfect place for a concept like The Colony to be born. The Colony is totally unique. Our idea is to provide inspiring and comfortable lodging in an interesting, undiscovered corner of town, but also to think about the expanding needs and wants of today's global creative class. St. Johns has a feel that is also completely its own. Set apart from the rest of the city by a beautiful, historic bridge, it's a village with blue-collar roots that go back a century, in the process of reinventing itself thanks to a recent influx of young creative businesses.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The Colony provides a unique opportunity to put together the right space for a list of possibilities that's as prolific as your imagination. From a simple overnight stay to a pop-up art show, catered dinner party, lunch meeting, company brainstorming or educational retreat, book club or yoga retreat, wedding, girls' weekend, long-term employee lodging with meeting and presentation space, movement arts classes or performances of all kinds. The baker's kitchen makes it possible to bring food and beverage service into the mix with ease.
