Overview

Portland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Upscale Furnished Self-Contained Cottage Studio Apartment, sleeps two + guests

Our quiet, cute, ultra-clean cottage studio apartment, in the heart of the city, was completely refurbished in 2011. It's entirely furnished and self-contained including all household needs. The decor combines sustainable surfaces, contemporary furnishings, antiques, repurposed pieces, stainless steel touches, and a cathedral ceiling and skylight. Clean electric heat or air conditioning will keep you comfortable no matter what the weather. And the cottage is well insulated for comfort and quiet.

The cottage has a full bath, private laundry room and energy star chef's caliber kitchen. All bedding, towels, linens, dishware and cooking utensils are supplied. A beginning supply of organic coffee beans, variety teas and household essentials are provided to renters, at arrival.

The Portland Urban Cottage studio apartment is a bright and airy miniature of the main house next door. The open living space offers plenty of storage for personal belongings and one off street parking place for the renter. The cottage is a perfect home base for extended business trips or family visits and as a relocation or renovation retreat.

Just an 8 minute drive to downtown city center, Portland Urban Cottage is located in the upscale, charming Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood, on the inner SE side of Portland. This quiet residential area, lined by numerous varieties of canopied trees and flowering plants, is always an invigorating place for a stroll.

The cottage sleeps two + guests. A very comfortable deluxe Portland built queen sized futon sits in a living room nook and opens to comfortably sleep two. A single air mattress is also available. All linens, bath towels, blankets, and kitchen towels are provided.

Relax in front of the fireplace, watch the flat screen TV, keep updated with the complimentary WIFI, read a cottage book or play a board game.

A glider swing sits in a pocket garden next to the cottage, and during warm weather, an umbrella table and chairs may be located near the cottage entry, as well.

Adult renters are welcome to use the two bikes, housed next to the cottage, for nearby sightseeing, a ride to parks or to go shopping at a variety of interesting neighborhood shops.

If you'd like to head downtown, but don't want to drive, bus stops are located in every direction and are just a few blocks from the cottage.

And there's lots to do in the neighborhood, including golf, hiking, shopping, antiquing, sipping and supping. There's even an historic movie theater and a live music venue within walking distance.

Why Lisa Balmes, Property Manager chose Portland

Our home is adjacent to the Portland Urban Cottage rental property and separated by a privacy fence and backyard garden. We appreciate the beauty and charm of this neighborhood and its convenience to limitless urban amenities.

The rental cottage was completely refurbished during 2011, and opened as a bed and breakfast / guest rental on February 1, 2012. We love it here and our guests seem to agree.

What makes this cottage unique

Located in the upscale, eclectic Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood, the cottage is open, cozy - and quiet. Its combination of modern decor, antiques, sustainable finishes, VOC free paint and 'green' cleaning results in an attractive, healthy and charming vacation getaway.

If it's 'quiet' you seek, you're bound to become wistful and relaxed when wandering through our urban paradise. If you're interested in the local sites and nightlife - they're just minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Thank you for the incredible breakfasts and coffee. We loved the cottage, cozy atmosphere and neighborhood. We'll be back."

Great weekend getaway

  • of 5
Thank you so much! We drove to Portland for a quick 2 night getaway from Vancouver, Canada. The cottage is located just a quick 10 min drive from the heart of DT. In addition, the neighborhoods that are close to the cottage SE Division etc.. have so much to explore, we only went into down a couple days. Best is they have bikes for you to use and explore the neighborhoods!! Great little loft rental- definitely willing to recommend + stay again.

Only one small glitch by Homeaway when setting up our code for the lock box to get our key. We had 2 different people call for reservations and they used one ph# for the box but emailed us the wrong code. We arrived late (11pm) and had to fumble in the dark for 30 mins trying to figure out how to get in + call around and email to try to get access to property. We felt bad because it was late and didn't want to wake the neighbors.
BUT the owners were amazing! They found out the issues we had and next day had a plate of brownies + cake with a sorry letter. Great care of their guest. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Canadian guests,
We're so glad you had a good time while in Portland and enjoyed your stay at our cottage and our guest bikes. We've tried to design the cottage so it's fun, efficient and provides some separate spaces. And the loft is a quite a unique bedroom. Portland's inner SE neighborhoods are great for finding interesting things to do and great places to eat. As for the key code mix up, my apologies, again. You're very generous considering the circumstances and you certainly deserved those sweets I left you. Thanks for staying with us. Judi

wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was a perfect spot for us. We were able to secure our bikes outside and ride them from Sellwood to all parts of Portland. Breakfasts were healthy, tasty, and early enough to allow us to take the rest of the day for adventures. The only drawback for us in the cottage was that the loft was a little tricky for an old guy to get up to, so we used the very comfortable futon for sleeping. Oh, and even though the Portland temperatures set records for highs, the a/c in the cottage kept us very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Hi Richard, I'm so sorry you weren't able to maneuver on the library ladder. It surprises me because you seem so fit - with all that bicycling. Some people do have a fear of ladders; that's why we have full length rails on each side and locking legs. I don't do well on heights, but find the trip up and down quite safe and easy with those handrails - as have guests of all ages. That comfortable queen (Portland built) futon, you enjoyed, on the main level is there especially for folks who don't want to climb. But it is good for folks to know their options, so thanks for letting travelers know about the ladder and thanks for all the kind comments you wrote about your stay.

A refuge, a delight

  • 5 of 5
Convenient, beautiful, absolutely clean, every comfort and convenience, wonderful place to stay. We were quite new to Portland, visiting family. The cottage gave us our own place to invite people to gather in, a base for pleasant walks, a quiet refuge when the crowds got to be too much. The neighborhood was pleasant, grocery and restaurants within easy walking, and buses to downtown stopped a few blocks away.

Owner's Response: Hi Jane, Ours is a charming neighborhood, which guests always say they love. It's so walker and bicyclist friendly, green and peaceful. Plus it gives visitors a chance to see how Portlanders really live instead of being cooped up in a hotel environment. Knowing that you enjoyed your stay in our cottage and enjoyed sharing some of your time there with friends, provides us with great feedback. We always look for a cozy, private refuge when we travel and strive to provide the same for our guests. Thank you for the glowing review and for choosing Portland Urban Cottage for your home base while here. I hope you have more time to spend with us on your next trip to town. Judi

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at your cottage. It was our first trip to Portland and we could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. The location was so convenient to so many places including downtown. The cottage was impeccably clean. The breakfasts were totally delicious. We will definitely recommend this property to family and friends.
The owner was very helpful with suggestions about dining and attractions.

Owner's Response: Thanks Brian & Terri,
I sincerely appreciate your kind words about our cottage. We pride ourselves on keeping a clean, healthy environment for our cottage guests. We always seek local advice regarding restaurants and local activities when traveling, so I'm happy I was able to offer you some (hopefully good) local suggestions. You two were ideal guests and it was a pleasure chatting with you each morning. Hope to see you again. Judi

My favorite place to stay in Portland

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Judi for a stay in your lovely (and impeccably clean) cottage. I wish my own kitchen was so well equipped! You really have thought of everything. Cottage is easy walking distance to grocery, bus, restaurants and such a pleasant neighborhood to walk in. I got the hang of the loft ladder after the first day and enjoyed climbing up to my little nest under the eaves. Can't think of a thing I would change, and hope to be back someday

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us. The Cottage really is a little home away from home. And our charming neighborhood is ideal for walking or biking to everything. Hope you make it to Portland again. Meantime, travel safely.

Comfortable convenience

  • 5 of 5
Loft was fantastic for our 5 year old. Breakfasts were better then any restaurant with many choices and fresh ingredients. Open floor plan big enough for a very comfortable stay. Outdoor space was so pretty. Easy walk to grocery etc. We could live here a month and not feel crowded! We are buying a home in this neighborhood and needed a convenient place to stay. I cannot thank you enough Judith for the warm and clean cottage. You hit it out of the park for us. Great futon and I had not slept on one before. size was not an issue even though we sleep on a King bed at home.
