About the Property

Inner northeast room close to downtown, public transportation

Private room in lovely restored, art filled Queen Anne home just two blocks from the heart of North Mississippi Avenue. The second floor guest room has central AC and is furnished with a queen size bed, a small sitting area with an upholstered chair, table and a book case with coffee and tea for your use. The room also has desk, fridge, dresser and closet. The attached bathroom has an absurdly comfortable clawfoot tub.

A roll-away single bed is also available for a third guest.

You have access to the downstairs, too! The house is eclectic and filled with art and treasures from family travels.

The property is centrally located, very close to the freeway, 7 min. from downtown by car, 15 by bike. It is also very close to public transportation; 3/10 mile from the light rail line (the 'Max') that travels directly to the city, and two blocks from the '4' city bus that goes to a transfer station on its way to downtown. At the transfer station you can pick up a bus to take you pretty much anywhere else in the city. The Max light rail will easily take you you to and from the airport, as well as downtown and all the way to neighboring cities.


However, you don't need to travel at all once you arrive, as all that makes Portland great is just outside your door. Within a mile there are four music venues, dozens of restaraunts and bars, and scores of charming little shops. Take a walk! Enjoy!

No smoking in the house. However, there is a covered patio furnished with chairs and an ashtray.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: George and I are a retired professional couple who love Portland and love sharing our beautiful city with travelers.

Why the Owner Chose Boise, Portland, OR, USA:
Very close to everything. Very close to the freeway, if traveling by car; a block away from a designated bike corridor; two blocks away from a major bus line (4) that connects to a transfer center on its way to downtown; and just two blocks from the heart of Mississipi ave; 8 blocks from the Williams corridor, and only a mile to the Alberta arts district. The room is also comfortable and self-contained. However, there is a full kitchen that you can use, should you so need. The living room is strikingly decorated, and boiasts the most comforatble sectional available. As the owners live on-site, they can tell you all about the wonders the neighborhood, Portland, and the surrounding area has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home has central air conditioning unlike many in Portland; the room is pretty self-contained with its own bathroom, a fridge, coffee and tea making equipment, and a sitting area. The main floor is also available to guests. Enjoy a living and dining area charmingly decorated with treasures Genie's family gathered from around the world and art created by friends and family. The hosts, Genie and George, live in the house, too. There is a covered front porch where tobacco smoking is allowed. There is also a patio with seating in the back yard, accessable via the driveway and gate.
