About Nature Suite- Cynthia Frost

I have lived in Ladd's Addition for almost 34 years and have traveled extensively as a principal rep though out the state. I have tons of knowledge of Oregon and will help you get where you want to go. There is also literature in the sitting room and I will give you a map when you arrive which will highlight Portland's Best. If you're new to Portland, this will help you get around. Do you homework though, you surprised me about a place I am not aware of and I want to know....

About me, I owned a Greeting Card Store downtown for a very long time which I closed a couple of years ago, to persue my T-shirt Company, I have my own line of T-Shirts that I sell at retail stores, Art Shows, and Festivals. I sometimes participate at Saturday Market downtown Portland. I do travel around the state sometimes, but not for long. I make a point to be here when you arrive so I can answer questions or just to say Hello.

My studio is in the basement and my office is in the garage. When possible I work around your schuedule since most of you are out durning the day. I have my own suite on the second floor of the house and our paths usually cross in the kitchen in the morning, Rarely do you see me at night unless I'm up to greet you or I need something for work or food, I am very respectful of your space and time but available if you need anything. Just let me know. Thanks

Nature Suite- Cynthia Frost purchased this house in 1984

Why Nature Suite- Cynthia Frost chose Ladd's Addition

When i moved here in 1984, i was not sure if this neighborhood was in a good area of town or not.As it turned out, the area is one of the best locations in the city! I rented my house at first to get a feel for the city and just loved being here. I wasn't aware of all the different angles of the streets right aware but soon learned it was one of the first organized neighborhoods on the west coast. I made the right decision. I love it here because it is so easy to go anywhere. It's the central of the city. The Nature Sutie is only 12 blocks from the Hawthorne Bridge that takes you downtown. Our mass transit is great, the food near by is wonderful and what's not to love. The location is perfect for me and my guests.

What makes this house unique

Ladd's Addition is like no other neighborhood! There are so many restaurants, brewry's, and shops within walking distance. You can walk downtown in 20 mins, or you can get lost walking in Ladd's Addition. It is a beautifful neighborhood and I'm so forunate, You have to see it to agree!

Cynthia, the owner, was welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The Nature Suite was warm and cozy.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Nature Suite. It’s a cozy apartment with all the amenities plus use of the kitchen for light cooking. Cynthia, the owner, was delightful. She’s very friendly and was helpful when we needed a hair dryer and umbrellas. There was everything we needed and it was easy to come and go through the back door of the house. The patio looks like it would be charming in the summer. We plan to come back again!

Until we meet again, be well and the best for the New Year! With Kind Regards. Cynthia

Artistic Decor, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely suite of bedroom, tiled bathroom, and comfy, small tv/living room. The owner's artistic talent is clear in the charming colors and decor. Pleasant kitchen is shared with owner, but easy to use. For us, the full size bed was a bit too small for comfort-- but everything else is lovely; a queen-size bed would make it perfect. Cynthia is a gracious host, and the location is ideal-- easy walking distance to Division Street and shops, or in the opposite direction, to the charming Ladd Addition, with public flower beds in residential neighborhood. Beautiful elm trees along the street add to the pleasure of staying here.

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a nice review. I do appreciate your suggestion of a queen size bed. I bought one and had it set up, but unfortunately, it did not fit. It had to go in front the heat duck and prevented the heat from warming the room. It's just a100 year old house and I don't think back them, thre builders were thinking ahead. I so appreciate you staying with me and enjoyed our conversations. Have a great summer and i hope our paths will cross again. Take good care of each other as I know you will, With Kind Regards Cynthia

Relaxing getaway

This is the fourth time we’ve stayed with Cynthia and it was amazing, as always! We walked almost everywhere the whole weekend and had a chance to enjoy the reading room while watching the snow fall. Such a great home away from home!

A Memorable Visit at Cynthia's Nature Suite

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Portland for the sixth time and stayed in the Nature Suite. We usually stay in downtown hotels, but our son encouraged us to stay in Ladd's Addition near him. We found the Nature Suite and booked it for 5 days. From the moment we arrived Cynthia made us feel completely at home. She was a wonderful hostess! We loved the coziness of the bungalow and the spaciousness of our rooms. We enjoyed walking to nearby restaurants and stores. We're looking forward to our next stay at the Nature Suite!
