About Sam Dyer

As fate would have it, Sam and Stephanie first met as neighbors in Southeast Portland. Sam, from rural Wisconsin with a degree in film and photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, met Stephanie who was about to embark on a design career in 2003. With a passion for music, architecture, and the arts, the pair sought to create a home for themselves in the dynamic city of Portland. Eager to start their lives together and willing to invest sweat equity, Stephanie and Sam purchased the main house at 705 North Humboldt Street in fixer condition before tying the knot in 2005. After a comprehensive DIY renovation and the birth of their first child in 2010, the ever-optimistic couple embarked on yet another project- employing Harding Construction, they demolished what was an unsalvageable garage to build an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). Stephanie, with her design background, originally envisioned the building to comfortably accommodate her parents and inlaws. It was only in time that the project intentions expanded to accommodate visitors to the city they had come to love- specifically a short-term vacation rental.

Among many personal touches, this project showcases two of Stephanie's emerging product lines: the Topo Collection for Clayhaus Ceramics (the 3D ceramic wall tile used in the kitchen, fireplace surround, and stair risers), and Archipelago Tile- the patterned cement tile flooring installed throughout the first floor and exterior stoops.

Sam Dyer purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Sam Dyer chose Portland

Sam and Stephanie immediately saw the potential for a close-in, convenient location in a rapidly up and coming neighborhood. The flourishing Mississippi District has by far and away surpassed their expectations in the eight years they have called it home.

Neat & Tidy, but Small

Neat & Tidy, but Small

This property was very nicely done, well kept, & clean. We did not spend a lot of time in the unit, so didn't use many of the amenities, but the coffee pot & wireless functioned well. The only downsides were no air conditioning (very hot in August) & cramped quarters. It is advertised as sleeping 4, but even 2 is a crowd.

Great place to stay in Mississippi District

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful place to stay. I took a one week bike course at UBI. The location was easy biking and even walking distance to class. The cottage itself was uniquely pleasant, enough for up to two people. It has everything you need. It is bright and airy. Sam and Stephanie were very accommodating. Mississippi District is close by with great restaurants, cafes, and shops. I enjoyed getting cappuccinos everyday at the Albina Press. I would definitely stay again.

I had the pleasure of spending 5 nights at this terrific property. The owners live next door and are friendly and attentive. They have done an amazing job of creating a comfortable living space in a small setting. The attention to detail is impressive!!

Perfect walkable location!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the ADU and everything was just as described: Exceptionally clean, walkable to shops and restaurants in the Mississippi neighborhood. I would, however, like to mention that the stairs to the bedroom as very steep and may be the right fit for elderly or disabled visitors.

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for us on our recent visit to Portland-walk to the train, and the great Mississippi neighborhood. Easy access to downtown. The hosts were helpful and friendly. We hope to return.
