About Sam Dyer

As fate would have it, Sam and Stephanie first met as neighbors in Southeast Portland. Sam, from rural Wisconsin with a degree in film and photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, met Stephanie who was about to embark on a design career in 2003. With a passion for music, architecture, and the arts, the pair sought to create a home for themselves in the dynamic city of Portland. Eager to start their lives together and willing to invest sweat equity, Stephanie and Sam purchased the main house at 705 North Humboldt Street in fixer condition before tying the knot in 2005. After a comprehensive DIY renovation and the birth of their first child in 2010, the ever-optimistic couple embarked on yet another project- employing Harding Construction, they demolished what was an unsalvageable garage to build an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). Stephanie, with her design background, originally envisioned the building to comfortably accommodate her parents and inlaws. It was only in time that the project intentions expanded to accommodate visitors to the city they had come to love- specifically a short-term vacation rental.

Among many personal touches, this project showcases two of Stephanie's product lines: the Topo Collection for Clayhaus Ceramics (the 3D ceramic wall tile used in the kitchen, fireplace surround, and stair risers), and Archipelago Tile- the patterned cement tile flooring installed throughout the first floor and exterior stoops.

Sam Dyer purchased this guest house in 2005

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Portland. Beautiful, clean, well-designed place that felt private and secure. We loved the perfect location, convenient to great coffee shops and restaurants. We really appreciated the portable crib for our crawling baby.

Beautiful space in a great part of Portland

  • 5 of 5

I found the property to look exactly like the photos and really enjoyed my time in the space. I never really used the kitchen because the surrounding neighborhood had many great places to eat. I was in town for work and was able to get downtown easily. I would stay here again.

Great getaway place in North Portland

  • 5 of 5

This little house is perfect for a short getaway. It's very clean and perfect for a couple. There are plenty of linens, and the breakfast nook converts to a queen-size sleeping area as well. It's bright and airy, with lots of windows and skylights.

It would have been nice to have had air conditioning during the very hot days (90+ degrees) of August 2017, but the cottage did cool off with all the windows open in the evening.

It's a short walk to restaurants and shops on Mississippi Ave. It takes a bit longer (30+ min) to take public transportation to the trendy Pearl District or Northwest District across the river. But the public transportation is very inexpensive ($5.00 for a day pass).

My suggestion for the owner - put a curtain over the window in the front door. It's a bit unsettling to think that anyone in front of the house can see you walking around inside.

The house was in great condition and loved all the windows. Worked well with 4 people for a couple of nights. Would highly recommend to stay here and would stay here again for a future vacation.
