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.
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.
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.
