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.

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!!!

Lill was a perfect host. The house is beautiful and very close to everything we needed. It had everything we needed being away from home and more. Loved it had so many chairs and many appliances in the kitchen to use. 5 star home!

Clean, modern home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend and loved the home! We did not rent a car and we were able to walk to the Max line, the Mississippi district for dining and shopping, or we used an app based ride share program. The home is clean and bright and had comfortable beds and furniture. We really enjoyed sitting around the fireplace in the living room in the morning!

What a perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My three out-of-town friends and I had a lovely time in this beautiful and thoughtfully appointed home in the N. Mississippi area. It truly is as Zen as the description makes it sound--it's a new building that is comfortably and stylishly furnished. The host thought of just about everything to make our stay perfect, from the bottle of wine that greeted us to clear instructions on check in and check out to the fluffy towels and completely equipped kitchen to the stroller and high chair in the closet (we didn't need them but it was an indication of her overall approach to hosting). I wish I lived here! And the neighborhood was pretty convenient if you want to be in north/northeast PDX--easy to get around and lots of interesting food and drink nearby. We had a great time at the Secret Society (cozy bar) and Ned Ludd, one of the top 40 restaurants in Portland (just 5 minutes away).

Also, and this is big in such a rainy city: the apartment has an attached garage so you don't have to park your car at the curb and can go right into the house.
