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 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.

If I could give 100 stars, I would

  • 5 of 5

If I can avoid staying anywhere else in Portland when I visit, I will. The house was immaculate, well-stocked, comfortable, and in a great location. Lill, the owner, was just lovely. We started our trip at another rental and there were issues with the property so we had leave and find somewhere else to go at 8:00 am the second day of our trip. Lill let us check in the same day and hours early so that we could shower and settle in without a blip in our plans. Her son meet us at the property and was super gracious and helpful. The master shower was like a shower room and it was amazing. There were 6 of us and we all said the beds were the best we'd slept in on vacation by far. Also, we could walk to great local shops, a food truck court, tap rooms, and a beautiful park. It is a short drive from downtown, too.

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!!!

Great property and location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property! New and modern comfortable furnishings in this lovely home! Would highly recommend. Lill was wonderful to work with when our flight was delayed and we didn't get in until late night. She even gave us excellent recommendations for shopping and restaurants. Look forward to staying here again!

Great house in NE Portland

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house in NE Portland. The house is very well stocked and everything was clean and new. We stayed there for a week when our son got married. Highly recommend for a family stay.

Such a wonderful property/estate

  • 5 of 5

The curbside appeal of this house was immaculate just looking at it our group was excited to see the inside. It definitely did not disappoint! From the amenities to the ambiance the house was very well maintained and decorated. The garage was convenient for parking and the location was a 20 minute walk from Mississippi st with all the fun bars and restaurants. Dylan was very nice and welcoming as well. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy portland through your home.

A wonderful family celebration.

  • 5 of 5

The home is spectacular and equipped with everything imaginable. From the spa type bathroom details to the gormet kitchen, we could not have imagined having stayed anywhere else. The location was perfect and close to everything. We would definitely return and look forward to our next vacation.

From Sunny Southern California, thank you for making our mini vacation possible and memorable.
