A queen size sleeper sofa with a foam topper plus a full size bed with a 3" foam topper gives you a choice of one or two beds. Relax and watch a little Cable TV, Netflix or Amazon Video in the comfortable rocking recliner. Maximum occupancy is three guests. Wi-fi is also included.
This property is 2 blocks from Springwater Trail and Sellwood Waterfront Park. Close to shopping, restaurants and more. This is a GREAT walking neighborhood. Nearby OHSU, Reed College, Lewis & Clark College and downtown Portland. LIGHTRAIL is now only a few blocks away so it's easy to get around the city without a car.
Sellwood/Moreland ranks #27 most walkable neighborhood of 89 Portland neighborhoods. This neighborhood is Very Walkable with an average Walk Score of 85. Sellwood/Moreland has 11,428 people—or 2% of Portland's population. Our location in Sellwood rates an 87 with the bike trail only blocks away and shopping, food carts, restaurants within a few short blocks. I counted 8 within one block recently.
This fabulous Sellwood Guest STUDIO Suite in a 1910 Old Portland styled house is a wonderful base to tour Portland and beyond. Close to Antique Row and 5 minutes from Downtown Portland.
The brightly lit basement STUDIO suite has everything to allow you to experience the Portland lifestyle. The HUGE 9'x9' 'private' designer bathroom is brand new with large fluffy towels and organic boutique soaps and shampoos. The 'private' STUDIO SUITE includes private backyard entry door access. Guests have access to the washer and dryer and a backyard HOT TUB as well as to the backyard where summer berries grow and can be picked daily. Raspberries are ripe all summer! A garden setting and a front porch swing are the best way to unwind from a long day of sightseeing and shopping.
The air conditioned STUDIO suite has a living AREA with cable TV, DVD player and free WiFi, a kitchenette with all dishes and necessities as well as a fridge and microwave. The bedroom AREA of this studio has a built-in closet with drawers, shelves and hanging rods for storage and has a comfy Beautyrest full-size bed equipped a 3' memoryfoam topper and lots of fluffy pillows with the finest sheets. There is a 3' divider to separate the sleeping area from the kitchenette. This is NOT a bed ROOM but part of the large 25'x12' studio and we try to offer a little more privacy this way. The ceiling going into the bed room area has an air return vent that lowers the height about 6”. If you are over 5’10”, you will have to duck under that 30” wide space. I can provide a hard hat if you’d like.
The Sellwood neighborhood is one of the best walking neighborhoods in the Portland area. Walk to shops, restaurants, grocery stores, library, parks, the Willamette River. Bike rentals are nearby. No need for a car but there is a space reserved if you choose to bring one. Public transit is only a block away that will get you to any part of Portland metro area.
This guest suite can be combined with the owners main floor home for additional space and full privacy. See Elegant Sellwood Old Portland Home listing.

My fiancée and I could not have asked for a better place to stay while visiting, Oregon. Rose was so sweet and really cared about her guest. The room was so nice and perfect for us. We loved having our own private entrance. The bed in the guest suite was super comfy and all together the suite was homie. I recommend Roses sellwood guest suite over a hotel any day.
“So beyond excellent”

I honestly did not know what to expect, as I had never stayed in someone's home. Warm, cozy, comfortable and extremely clean.
The area, Sellwood, is perfect for wandering shops and restaurants. And dear Rose, the owner of the home, provides a list of places to go and things to do. Also, a bit of history concerning Portland.
But, enough of that. Rose has done a wonderful job of providing the perfect place to stay. She was out of town, but we communicated. The location is great for easy access into downtown Portland. I would recommend this little slice of heaven to both people I know, and strangers alike.
“Great Location - Fantastic Hospitality!”

This was our first trip to Portland and Rose was wonderful in helping plan things to do. The accommodations were cozy and wonderful for two people. Nice big beautiful bathroom. The best part was - we were there during berry season and were welcomed to pick all the warm juicy blueberries and raspberries from the backyard as we wanted. The location is in a nice relaxing neighborhood with lots of great restaurants and some shops. LOVED the tea room - nice place to get some work done. Great proximity to downtown - we rented bikes and took the path right there in 20 minutes. Loved Sellwood, Loved the suite, Loved Rose and her sweet little 'ol pup! Highly recommended for a nice laid-back get-away!
