Want to stay in a truly unique, custom-built tiny home in the heart of Portland's hottest neighborhood? The Mississippi Smalls - Lemon Door Loft will treat you right. We look forward to hosting you in our hand-crafted micro-loft built with love!
The Mississippi Smalls - Lemon Door Loft is a modern - industrial - rustic take on the classic mother-in-law unit, which will provide you with a luxe, personal & economical alternative to staying in a hotel/motel in the city. Located in the heart of the Historic Mississippi District & boasting a Walker's Paradise 91 & Biker's Paradise 93 score, the Smalls are sure to deliver a unique experience in custom designed, space efficient housing & convenient access to some of Portland's hottest spots, just steps away!
While the Smalls are considered Tiny Houses, the open, vaulted, light-filled space will make them seem much bigger than they appear. They are appointed with everything you need whether you are visiting PDX for a few days or for an extended stay.
Our inspiration for the micro-lofts was born out of our love for efficient spaces & for the love of all things tiny & small. We've pooled the talents of friends, artists & local crafts people in Portland to construct & finish out the Smalls. Our experiences touring as Musicians for many years, travels around the world, participating in Burning Man & our local roots all influence the vibe of the space. Wherever possible, we have reclaimed, repurposed, upcycled, & recycled objects & materials & incorporated them into the design & function of the building & surrounding space.
We wanted them to be tranquil, meditative, efficient, green-friendly environments, which combine both comfort & practicality in their 320 square footprint. Though technically studios (one room), the extra 100 square foot sleeping loft, with full staircase & vaulted 18 foot ceilings and private bath combine to make the space feel & function much larger than it is. Each unit is also a completely separate & standalone building. The micro lofts share a beautiful common area garden with bamboo rustling in the breeze, custom patio & ready to fire grill. Perfect for reflecting, bbq'ing, reading, relaxing, happy-houring or whatever your heart desires.
With regrets: No Pets/No Smoking
Keyless entry allows for easy 24 hour check in / check out, at your convenience. Please do not worry about late nite check ins or early morning check outs - it's no bother! :) We will send you the code on the day of your arrival. You'll have complete access to the unit you have rented (Blue Door (front) or Lemon Door (back)) & the grounds of the property, including patios & garden space. There is also a pretty nice laundry / pub less than a block away from the house on Fremont if you need to do your laundry while you drink beer or coffee with friends. DIY Portland style!

We are self described lovers of life, music, fun, travel, art, music, gardening, food, wine, bikes & adventure! Together with our daughters Stella & Maddi, we try to live each day to its fullest with the understanding that life is short, so enjoy it!
We have extensively traveled in South America, Central America, North America & Europe & we have toured as percussionists with MarchFourth Marching Band in many of those places as well. We love that we have been able to create a place now that we are settling in as a family where travelers can come visit us & share their vacations with us. We truly love hosting & our dream is to build more cottages in Portland, the city we love, call home & we always come back to, no matter how far away we range.
We have been told we are laid back, generous hosts & we will be able to give you many spot on recommendations in the city or in the region as we have lived in & explored this area for over 20 years. We love to share our insider knowledge of the quirky, community spirited, eco-minded "Portlandia" that everyone is talking about.
We absolutely love where we are located in the city directly across from Peninsula park with easy access to I-5, public transportation, bike routes & the trendy Mississippi & Alberta Arts districts. We hope you will join us & share the space we have created for your enjoyment.
Heather, Topher, Stella & Maddi (& Inigo ~ the dog)
