Welcome to your new home away from home: a sunny upstairs bedroom in the heart of the Alberta Arts District! Private, light and bright accommodations in a friendly, updated house.
We are a family / baby friendly listing, and we can accommodate you in one or two bedrooms. (We offer a second listing on the same floor.)
We have a 1 year old (as of May 2017), so you may hear crying from downstairs at some points, but rarely at night! We try to keep the place tidy, but this is a lived-in home!
Welcome to Portland! Set your bags down and start exploring! This sunny upstairs bedroom on a quiet street in close-in NE Portland is ideal for a small family trip or a solo traveler. You'll have the upstairs largely to yourself, aside from the possibility of another guest or two joining you in the other room on this floor, and occasional use of the shared office. (You can also rent out the second room if you'd like more space for your family.)
Your bedroom features plenty of air and light. It’s got a queen-sized bed with a fantastic quality mattress, a small desk and some nice closet space for you. We're also happy to set up our Pack 'n Play if you've got a baby in tow.
Two windows feature backyard views and the bedroom is set back from the street, which makes it nice and quiet at night. You've got your own desk, but if your work needs are greater, there is a shared office next to the bedroom; just let us know and we'll make sure it's available to you for a portion of each day.
The office is stocked with plenty of books, reference materials and office supplies. The office also features two windows (one overlooking the backyard and one overlooking the street) and tons of great light.
The house is updated throughout. The living room area has plenty of cozy seating area, lots of books, records and CDs but NO TV (go see the city!)
The kitchen is connected to the living area and has all the amenities you need for cooking. We keep it as tidy as we can, but because we are a busy, working family, a few dishes sometimes do pile up. We do our best to stick to a 24-hour rule for dishes and try to keep things as cleaned up as we can on the go, and ask the same of you.
We've got a great front porch perfect for lounging, and quieter back porch, too. The backyard is currently under renovation! WiFi is available, and so is a washer/dryer.
We'll have a list of fun Portland recommendations ready for you, as well as clean towels, and we have an extra bike and helmet if you are a solo traveler.

Expect to often have the place largely to yourself, or to interact with us mainly in passing or in the evenings. We may be away on a trip, or just going about our busy daily lives, but we are always here to answer any questions you have.
We have a child! She is 1 year as of May 2017 so there will likely be crying and screaming at some point during your stay (rarely at night though; she sleeps like a champ!) We keep quiet hours from about 8 p.m. to 8 a.m., but we run a noise machine to help our baby sleep, so you'll be free to go about your business in the evening hours, cooking and hanging out and talking, as long as you don't get too loud! We try to keep noise down in the morning when our baby awakens, but you may hear signs of life from 7 a.m. on!
There may be other guests in the house at the same time as you. We'll be sure to let you know if this is the case.
Send us a message telling us a bit about yourself before making a reservation request, especially if you have no references. We'd like to know who we might be sharing our home with!
Additionally, please note that if you do not have (m)any previous reviews on Air B'N'B, we'll likely ask you for some other references, such as links to social networking sites or personal webpages, etc.
No drugs, no pets, no smoking, no heavy drinking. No additional guests.
This is a family oriented house, best suited to more mature, quiet travelers.
