The room has it's own mini refrigerator and you are welcome to use the kitchen in the house to cook. There will be coffee in the morning. Blocks from the 40 mile bike loop of the Spring-water Trail which is a nice area to take a walk or a bike ride.
The bedroom is a relaxing lovely place for a book lover and an adventure seeker. Feel free to pick up one of the many books on the shelves and read about anything from how to travel on a budget or Dr. Seuss. Soft natural light which also includes the authentic display of art we have from the exchange students we have hosted.
The bathroom off the kitchen is exclusively yours while a guest in our home. Granite floors, a Jacuzzi tub and full use of the kitchen help our guests unwind after a day of journeys or to make themselves at home if doing grueling job or house hunting.
Our home is full of quite a history and represents the family we have built and the community we are proud. We have lived in this home for decades, raised our children here and not only do we know our neighbors- they are both our biological family as well as people we've known for decades.
We invite you into our home as a new addition to both a home layered with history but a neighborhood that is truly neighborly.
Very nice tiled private bath, off the kitchen. Make your self at home and enjoy the lovely marble counter-tops in the full kitchen (don't forget the mini fridge in the bedroom!). Our guests have access to majority of the home (excluding our own bedroom/office and bathroom of course).
Interaction with guests
Ask Ken or I any questions from how to get round town the best way (Ken was an UBER and LYFT driver) to where to eat in the area.
Ken is a funny, outgoing musician and I am a teacher in every sense of the word. We welcome and respect however much interaction suits our guests. In the instances our daughter (Julia) happens to be here she can point you towards the comedy scene, theater and Ken and myself are happy to share our plethora of Portland knowledge.
Your stay is truly important to us as well as having as enjoying your travels. We always welcome our guests to message us with an questions not just about our home but about Stumptown (Portland).
We look forward to meeting you!
Other things to note
We are 15 from Portland airport, just minutes off I 205. Downtown Portland is also 30 minutes away, but we are close to many scenic areas of Oregon.
No smoking in our home, but we can set up an area in the front. Please be quiet if you come in late since we might be getting up early for work in the morning.
Dogs are welcome, but there is a fee of $10 a night in cash payable to us.. Please make sure shots are up to date.

I enjoy gardening and grow veggies year round. My husband and I also enjoy the music of Portland and would be willing to share our love of it with you. I am an Early Childhood Educator.Ken is a mobile Notary.and a former Uber driver. He can advise you on the best way to get around the area.
During the summer and fall months, we volunteer with a program that harvests fruit that would go to waste. Most of the fruit goes to a food bank, but we also get to bring some home. During those months you might find fruit on the porch that we are willing to share.I have lived in Portland my whole life and love the area.
You will certainly here "living the dream" said throughout your stay by Ken.
We are avid travelers ourselves and not only loving seeing different parts of the World but also enjoy meeting anyone from our fellow Portlanders to... everyone.
