“Words can't describe how amazing staying here was. It's close to awesome places, the apartment is perfect and cozy, and they go above and further beyond in the accommodations than I could have ever hoped for. They know what they're doing and how to make their guests feel like they are long time friends dropping into town for a visit. ” -guest review

We are happy to interact as much or as little you would like. We are great at respecting privacy and understand that some guests prefer less interaction.
Access to neighborhoods. Laurelhurst is central to all of these amazing walking districts just a walk from the studio (each under a mile away):

24hr Fitness is an 10 minute walk
We are a block from major bus lines and an 10 minute walk to the MAX rail.
Access to nature:
Laurelhurst Park is two blocks away and Mt Tabor Park is only 1.5 miles with stunning views of downtown and Mt Hood. The Columbia River Gorge is a 20min drive from our house. Just walking in our neighborhood is pretty amazing for the trees on either side of the street stretch to touch overhead.

Many local coffee shops and Starbucks (we recommend Crema and Heart Coffee)
Hollywood, Bagdad and Laurelhurst theaters are each under a mile away. Take in a film while enjoying a microbrew and a slice...Portland style.
Powell's Books is 2.9 miles away, unless you want to visit them on Hawthorne just down the street (but go to the downtown location, it's not to be missed)
Walk to Laurelhurst Market right in the hood. This acclaimed steakhouse inspired brasserie is both fine dining and full service butcher shop, right across the street from Music Millennium, one of the largest and last standing independent record stores in the country.
Belmont Station, the most award winning bottle shop in the NW, is your source for stocking up on beer, boasting over 1200 bottles thoughtfully curated to blow your mind. Now a great source for cider too. A little walk from the studio and you're set.
Prohibition is over! With cannabis legal we have partnered with Farma, Portland's best and most award winning dispensary. Ask us for a coupon for a $2 pre-roll and 10% discount when you visit Farma (only 2.5 miles from the studio) on lower Hawthorne. Please remember to smoke outside the studio ;-).
