I built this small lovely sleeping cottage to add another accommodation to my existing small B & B on the same property. It gives guests a bit more privacy, as well as their own kitchenette, private garden, etc. I moved to Portland from California in 2004, where I ran a craft gallery for 10 years. I opened my inn in Portland in 2006 and have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. I specialize in women travelers, but have hosted many parents of grown children who live in Portland, folks coming for special events or classes. I enjoy kayaking, bicycling, movies and cooking. I'm a big sister to a little 10 year old girl with big Sisters/Big Brothers.
Terry Rusinow purchased this cottage in 2007
I added this cottage to my existing property to have a more private place for people to stay.
While I didn't purposely seek out this neighborhood when looking to buy a house, it just happened, and I'm so glad it did. Kerns isn't a very well known neighborhood, but it's walking distance to Laurelhurst and Buckman areas, which are better known. Only 4 blocks to NE 28th street, which is a restaurant/cafe mecca in NE Portland. Where can you get Cuban, Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean, New Orleans, Southern, Chinese, Japanese and artisan pizza in one location? Plus the Laurelhurst Movie Theater is a must, only $4.00 to get in and you can buyfood, beer/wine in the theater. And Laurelhurst Park is a mere 1/2 mile away and is one of the most beautiful parks in the area.
We had an amazing stay at the Everett Street Guesthouse this past Christmas Holiday. It far exceeded my expectations. I was surprised at the cleanliness, newness, and tasteful decor of the main house and cottage.
We stayed at the Cottage, which by the way does not adequately describe the space. When I think of cottage, I think of old, quaint, detached space. Yes, the space is detached from the main house, but it is not old nor quaint. It is luxurious and tasteful. Everything from the art to the furnishings is regal. I could not imagine staying anywhere else!
The property owner is an amazing and gracious host. She's very personable and makes you feel truly at home.
Worried about the distance to downtown/pearl district from the guesthouse. You shouldn't be. The 20 Tri Met bus is a mere three short blocks from the residence. Ti-Met offers fast/safe frequent service to the downtown core. With buses running every 10 to 15 minutes, it's only a 10 minute bus ride to downtown. Also, the neighborhood offers plenty of dining options if you choose to stay closer to "home'. I would recommend LeVante. It's a world class dining experience, steps away from the guesthouse and cottage.
We had a wonderful time in Portland for a three night getaway in late November 2014. The cottage is private, quiet, and in an amazing character neighbourhood. Everything we needed and more was there for us. Just a short 10 minute walk from Laurelhurst (restaurants, shops) as well as great places along E Burnside. only a 5 minute walk to an extremely convenient bus route, which gave us access to the entire city - we barely used our car at all. We'll certainly be back, as the proximity to one of our favourite live music locations is merely walking distance!
My husband and I stayed here for six days in April 2012, and loved it! The cottage is both functional and beautiful, with everything you need -- including a washer and dryer! -- for a private, restful stay. We came by train and never needed a car, thanks to the cottage's convenient location for both walking and taking the bus to a wide range of Portland eateries and other attractions. We'll definitely return to this lovely, comfortable place!
Had a family wedding to attend in Portland and stayed at the guest house cottage. Charming and MINUS the frills - a comfortable, contemporary, well appointed space and private too. After 3 days the place felt like home. -Denise A.
I stayed here for 5 nights in mid-October, 2009, and was very pleased with the cottage. It was in a great location - grocery store, movie theatre, shopping all within walking distance, plus close to Portland's incredible public transit system. The cottage itself was very well-equipped and comfortable, and having 2 outside spaces was very nice. I recommend it for a couple, or for a single person.
We stayed a week here and found it to be a very
relaxing oasis within the city - seclusion with a
lovely garden area, 2 patios, sounds of rushing
water and birds. The inside of the cottage is also
very nice, it has a great location, and the innkeeper
is dedicated to giving you the very best service.
Kerns is a lovely neighborhood that's only 5 minutes across the Burnside Bridge to downtown, yet quiet and residential. A few minutes walk takes you to NE 28th, known as 'restaurant row', as well as Laurelhurst Movie Theater, $4.00 to get in and food and beer--what's not to like?
