Looking out from the guest room window, you'll see nothing but historic houses, an old church and the Fore River. The Stroudwater neighborhood is unique in Portland in the age of its homes and the amount of land they are situated on. This neighborhood is minutes from downtown Portland, the airport, and both 95 and 295.
Feels like a retreat in the country, yet you're in the middle of the city.
