About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Blocks from Mississippi Ave. Come visit our solar powered cottage and enjoy the best of Portland! We offer discounts to PK-12 teachers. We donate 10% of bookings to charity.

The first 10 guests will receive local treats!

Professional photos coming!

Our cottage is a minimalist's dream. A European/Nordic inspired space, we've tried to create a seamless flow for entertainment and living. The cottage features a heated towel bar (because once you use one, you'll never want cold towels again), vintage and modern pieces from local Portland shops, gluten-free toiletries (yes, they exist), local coffee and tea and more.

We are a no-smoking property, anywhere on the property. Please help us keep our property clean by not smoking inside or out.

Your stay will also help us donate 10% to charities. We currently donate to clean water initiatives, charities trying to end sex trafficking and foster parent support.

We have a dedicated bedroom and a pull out queen for extra guests.

We are still in the process of converting the space to a full fledged, stand-alone unit with a washer/dryer, dishwasher and sink, but in the meantime, we just couldn't wait any longer to host fun travelers! Our prices right now reflect the fact that we don't have a full kitchenette and that we're still landscaping the yard. So take advantage :)

Here's some additional amenities we provide:


-Organic coffee

-Pour over coffee maker

-Electric, ceramic tea kettle

-Local teas

-Treats for our first round of guests!

-Toaster oven


-Mini-fridge/Freezer with condiments



-Everyone Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash

-Heated towel bar

Bedroom/Living room:

-Portland Monthly magazine


~We would like the space to be shoe-less, so we provide slippers for guests, so your feet don't freeze in winter. :)

-Lots of cuddly blankets and pillows

-Eye masks

-Ear plugs

-Shower caps

-Other toiletries upon request

....Essentially, we want you to feel as though you're truly at a retreat.

Since we don't have a washer/dryer in the unit now, if you need to do laundry, we can happily accommodate that in our house. Just let us know!

About Owner / Property Manager

We are adventure loving Northwesterners. We're constantly sampling the best the city of Portland has to offer, but are also striving to give back to the community. We're involved in several local charities and promise to donate 10% of our rental income to charities dedicated to clean water, ending sex trafficking, and foster parent support.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose North Portland

We chose this property for its proximity to amenities and the freeway and public transportation. It's extremely conveniently located for those who need to travel within city limits.

We also knew we wanted it immediately because of the potential of a guesthouse. We've finally almost realized our vision!

What makes this cottage unique

We love our guest house. We're working on developing a beautiful yard to accompany the careful retreat feel we built into the home.

The cottage is very insulated, which helps with the quiet you'll have once inside. It's also wonderfully temperature regulated. We're in the process of adding more and more amenities almost daily. We have beautiful rugs going in shortly and we're working on securing a projector and movie screen inside so that guests can watch movies, kick their feet back and enjoy some fresh popcorn on vacation.
