About Lill Madland

I was born in Norway, raised in inner city Chicago, and educated in Northern California. I moved to Portland in 1991 with my family, from Santa Cruz. I have had the pleasure of watching this city grow into one of America's most vibrant cities.

One of my greatest passions in life is travelling. I have travelled to 28 different countries and their cultures. I have come to appreciate beautiful accomodations that are conducive to the comfort of the group. This property reflects my vision of providing travellers with a high end, boutique type experience, but in a much larger version. I believe that I have accomplished this task.

Lill Madland purchased this house in 2014

Why Lill Madland chose North Portland

I love North Portland! As an old house renovator and designer of more than 25 years, I am drawn to the intrique of the modern, minimalist movement that is so pervasive in Portland right now. Come discover what makes this property so special.

What makes this house unique

Two short blocks from one of Portland's largest rose gardens and park. A few short blocks away from the lively North Mississippi corridor. If you want to explore the city at large, you couldn't have easier access, via car, train, or freeway access.

Perfect Property

  • 5 of 5

We are snowbirds and rent in Portland each summer. This property was perfect for us. It gave us the room we need to entertain/house friends and family and is conveniently located to restaurants, parks, and grocery stores. The house is new, clean, and well appointed. We'll be staying here often.

Owner's Response: Patsie and Bob were nothing less than perfect guests! They spent two months at my home and treated it as if it were their own. They had it professionally cleaned during their stay and left it in mint condition. They even replaced all the essential supplies that they used and left behind two lovely hydrangea plants. I could not more highly recommend this couple as guests. They are wonderful!!!

Beautiful, comfortable home in a walkable neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Lill's house is lovely, super clean and inviting, and has everything one might need for a truly enjoyable trip. It is well situated a block or 2 from a really good coffee shop, and a few blocks from several restaurants, bars, food trucks, and an inviting yoga studio. We even walked to the grocery store. My group of friends enjoyed the house so much we would have loved to stay longer and check out more of what the neighborhood has to offer. And maybe to finish the puzzle we started.

Great Family Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lill! Your home is very comfortable and you thought of everything. My family and I had a great time. We were able to relax, cook and play lots of games. There was lots of fun and laughter. We really appreciated your attention to detail with the kitchen, towels and bedding. All we needed was the food. Wishing you a happy holiday season!

Wonderful Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful large house in North Portland met our needs perfectly. Very modern and well equipped. It is only two blocks from the beautiful Peninsula Park and less than a 15 minute walk to the Mississippi District with its numerous fine restaurants. Easy access to Interstate 5 can get you to the city center in minutes (if you avoid the somewhat nasty commute hours).

Loved the beds and the living room gas fireplace. Kitchen well equipped and very modern. Attached garage very convenient in an area where street parking sometimes a little difficult and not getting wet is a priority.

A special thanks to Lill who was very accommodating under some special circumstances.

Great location, great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Portland and this house was the perfect spot! Very spacious and well equipped, comfortable, beautiful decor, and excellent communication with Lill the owner. Check in and out was a breeze. This home is walkable to quite a few bars and restaurants and within 10-15 minute drive to top spots in the Pearl District. We loved the house and would stay there again.
