A private bedroom in the back of a house located in the Hawthorne district of Portland, Oregon. We are also nearby the Belmont and Division neighborhood districts.

You won't need to rent a car. Take light rail from the airport, then use Uber, lyft, the bus, Car2Go, GetAround or BikeTownPDX rental bikes. We are a quick bus-ride to downtown PDX. If you do have a car, we have free street parking.

And yes - we have chickens.

The space

This is a sunny bedroom in the back of a large house. Access is either through the front door or via a private side door. The bed is a pull-out "hide-a-bed" (size is a double) but it's nothing like the crappy hide-a-bed in the basement of your Uncle's house. This one has an inflatable air mattress that can be made as firm or soft as you like.

The room has internet.

The bedroom shares a bathroom with one other bedroom, accessible by a short walk down a hallway. It is just off the kitchen and you may be occasionally woken by the smell of breakfast - which you are welcome to join.

The additional bedroom in the wing is occupied by Dave. He is a nice guy, clean and quiet.

There is a spacious patio in the back of the house - delightful when it isn't raining.

Guest access

The main floor of the house is considered community space. Play the piano, make some tea, use the fridge, watch television, read a book. Much like the common room you had in that big house in college - but with adults. The bedroom has plenty of space to be contemplative if you so desire, or you have the option to come out and socialize.

Interaction with guests

Mark works at home in an upstairs office and is immediately available (assuming he isn't on a teleconference).

Other things to note

Monday nights are practice for a Saxophone / Bass jazz duet. You're welcome to come listen. And yes - we have chickens, but they are not allowed in the house.

Mark's place is lovely; on a residential side street near a main avenue lined with shops and restaurants. He and the other tenants are super friendly, funny, and have great advice about what to see and do in Portland. They even put up with me regaling them with stories of my daily adventures. Mark is very conscientious, texting me to make sure I was ok when I was out for a late dinner and making sure I got my train. Two quick notes: the bed is a futon so it sags a little. If you have back problems might not be the best for you. Also, the walls are thin so while you won't be bothered if you are in your room, you can hear others walking around. Finally, Mark makes a great cup of joe. Book this place!

We only had a couple of nights and a day and a half in Portland. And this place was perfect. Especially so as we love the quirky inner city culture (as we live in an area pretty similar back home). Having said that, getting downtown was no issue at all. The house is stunning and comfortable, and Mark made us feel at ease to use the amenities provided. Met Janelle and the other housemates briefly too and everyone was really lovely. I would definitely consider staying there again the next time I make the trip to Portland.

This is a very nice, quiet room in a lovely house on a super nice, tree-lined street in a great part of Portland. Mark is a kind, thoughtful, and responsive host. Easy to get everywhere by public transit, and walking distance to tons of restaurants, shops, bars, etc. I was there for a conference and it worked out great for me. I'd return with my husband for a vacation when we are next in Portland.
