Our cozy-comfy 4 season yurt is nestled under majestic trees on a beautifully landscaped 1/3 acre. Located in a quiet, safe SW Portland neighborhood with a park, hike/bike trail a block away. We are 6 miles from downtown, with beaches, gorge and Mt. Hood accessible for day outings.
2017 brought major upgrades including a full kitchen, a natural gas fireplace and complete electrical service. The guests full bathroom is located in the home's utility room a short lighted pathway walk from the yurt.

The space
The soft circular feel of our spacious 24 foot diamater yurt is welcoming and relaxing the moment you step in from the covered porch (with hammock). The 12.5 foot conical ceiling has a clear copula at its apex with trees and sky to gaze out at. Family play is the way; the backyard is equipped with badminton, trampoline, 30ft. tree swing and a children's play house.
A fire pit sits next to the yurt with bench and lawn chairs set-up for an aesthetic evening fire or roasting marshmallows.
Furnishings include a circular dining table with chairs, a desk with office chair, 2 wicker chairs, lounge chair, chest of drawers, towel storage cabinet, end tables . There is a portable massage table in the main house, which can be used on request.
The standard bed has memory foam. The queen bed is also very comfy. The single bed is a pull-out at floor level, under the queen for a fifth guest.
There is a full kitchen with hot and cold running water, a coffee maker, microwave, hot water kettle, an under the counter refrigerator, several cabinets and a rolling cart with butcher block cutting board and shelves for supplies. The kitchen has dishes, glasses, silverware, cooking utensils; everything thing you need to prepare meals easily.
There is a cast iron natural gas fireplace in the yurt for a cozy fire in the evening or to take the chill out of the air any time you feel the need. The fireplace has a remote control with a thermostat.
The yurt sits in the SW corner of the lot, 30 feet from the house, for a feeling of separation and privacy.

Guest access
Guest can access the whole backyard, which has a large deck attached to our house. There is a back door to the utility room of the main house with a guest only full bathroom (remodeled 2017) and is stocked with complimentary shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

Garden Home is our well named neighborhood. It is noted for tall trees, large lot sizes and great recreational and park facilities. We are one half block from a nice public park with tennis courts and play equipment. Only two blocks away is the connection to an extensive bike and hiking trail system.
We are located with access to multiple freeways and positioned well to get you just about anywhere in the Portland area in about 20-30 minutes.
It is a ten minute drive to the beautiful Washington Park, which contains the Oregon Zoo (which has outdoor concerts), the world class Portland Rose Garden, Japanese gardens, Children's Museum, a pacific northwest arboretum and miles of hiking trails, etc.
The Portland based New Seasons natural foods grocery store is a five minute drive away.
The Scandinavian Cultural Center is walking distance and has a unique restaurant serving breakfast and lunch.
We are a 5 minute drive from quaint Multnomah Village, which has several good restaurants, cafes, a tea shop, a bakery, antiques, a book store, gift shops, etc.

I have been married over 20 years and am a retired Waldorf teacher. I have 4 children; 3 adult and a teenager. I am a dedicated family man and active guy who enjoys gardening, frisbee, sports and the outdoors. I once owned a natural foods restaurant and enjoy cooking and eating healthy food. I love the Oregon coast and also like to visit destinations in California where two of my children live. I love taking care of my home and garden and have a yurt in my backyard, which is a guest house when family or airbnb folks visit. I have one of the coolest chicken coops in Portland that I built by re purposing my kids play-structure. I am a handy guy that likes to create beauty and function in and around my home. My family and I would be ideal airbnb guests as we are gentle folks and not at all interested in partying with alcohol, drugs or loud music. We are also respectful and appreciative when able to use the spaces/facilities of others.
