Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Margot returned to her Portland roots in the Fall of 2009, after spending time in both Chicago & San Francisco. With experience in marketing & events and a passion for travel and exploring, her entrepreneurial spirit runs both Opal 28, a boutique event space and Dinner At Your Door, a local dinner delivery service on the ground level of the Upstairs at Opal 28. Margot has a keen sense of customer service, knowledge about Portland's must sees, and a cheerful demeanor. You are guaranteed a comfortable experience when you stay with her. When Margot is not perfecting her business plans she enjoys playing in the Pearl with her niece & nephew, heading to the mountain to ski and cozying up at a coffee shop to read the latest magazines. Enjoy!

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Portland, Portland, OR, USA:
This well taken care of vintage building was purchased for the sole purpose of operating short stay accommodations. There is no better way to explore a new city than to spend a few days living in a true Portland neighborhood full of charm and the option to walk to activities.

We have four spacious one bedroom apartments that can be rented out for 2-4 occupants each or rent out more than one unit to accommodate your bigger travel companions.
