Overview

Portland Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Starfish Vacation Rentals is pleased to offer this newly renovated bungalow for those seeking an urban adventure. Brooklyn Cottage is conveniently located near downtown Portland, multiple universities and colleges, numerous cultural and entertainment activities, top-notch restaurants, spas and gyms, and a number of major medical centers. It’s a warm, inviting abode that has been thoughtfully equipped to serve as your home away from home when visiting the beautiful City of Roses.

This private, tastefully decorated bungalow is tucked behind lush landscaping and the property’s main house. The two are separated by a peaceful courtyard that’s perfect for lounging with a good book or for enjoying a homemade meal you can prepare with the onsite gas grill and fully equipped, modern kitchen. That is if you aren’t too tempted by the many nearby Portland eateries.

Brooklyn Cottage has easy street parking and close access to public transportation. After a day exploring Portland, you’ll appreciate a good night’s sleep in the comfortable beds (one queen, one twin trundle bed), both of which are wrapped in high-quality linens. A queen-sized sofa sleeper in the family room provides an additional sleeping option, for a house total of six guests. The family room features several entertainment options—a cable-equipped HDTV, DVD player, high-speed broadband WiFi, and selection of board games. The bungalow’s nicely appointed bathroom will beckon with its full-sized, cast iron tub and tile shower enclosure; soft, fluffy towels; and eco-spa amenities. A convenient full-sized washer and dryer are also available in the home, along with an environmentally friendly heating and air-conditioning unit to keep you comfortable in all seasons.

Every detail about this premier property exudes the owners’ discriminating taste, attention to detail, and graceful hospitality. Whether it’s a family vacation or a romantic getaway, you are sure to have the experience of your dreams at the Brooklyn Cottage.

The City of Portland has issued Permit #14-224495-000-00HO to The Brooklyn Cottage indicating it has been properly inspected and is a legal rental in Portland.

About Danna Kittell

The owners of the Brooklyn Cottage are also travelers who stay in VRBOs when they explore the world. Having the experience of travel makes them great hosts as they know what travelers need and want. Since the owners have lived in the Brooklyn Neighborhood for more than a decade, they will be able to guide and help you in finding what you are looking to see or experience during your stay in Portland. One of the owners is a born and raised native Oregonian who knows this beautiful state’s nooks, crannies and hidden gems. We both enjoy outdoor activities and can also direct any of our guests to wonderful hikes and outdoor adventures.

Why Danna Kittell chose Portland

We choose this property because of its proximity to downtown Portland and so many other amenities like restaurants, grocery stores, bus lines, bike trails, running trails, Oaks Bottom Wildlife refuge, museums, and other activities and conveniences.

What makes this cabin unique

Location, Location, Location. It is close to so many attractions. The Brooklyn Cottage is comfortable, modern, and clean.

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. It was incredibly clean and spotless and well equipped with new appliances. It had all the amenities of home. The proximity to downtown and many Portland attractions was great especially when travelling with children.

Reviewer Comments:

Everything was very tidy and the house was well equipped with linens, towels, and a few extra goodies which were a nice touch (Biscotti, Coffee, Spices for cooking..) The location was quite central, and a very short drive to many interesting parts of town. I would especially recommend the cottage to families, as the second bedroom has two separate beds, rather than one larger bed, and would be great for 2 adults + 2 kids. All in all a very pleasant experience.

Good for exploring Portland

  • 5 of 5

Grandparent, parents, and child stayed here for a few days during a summer vacation visit to Portland. It was clean, quiet, and had everything we needed. The cottage is well-located to sightseeing in the city by car, public transport, and even to some degree on foot. The owners were friendly but not intrusive. We would stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the Brooklyn Cottage in Portland. It was impeccably clean and well-maintained. Tasteful decor. Very comfortable beds. Washer-dryer in the cottage meant that we could pack less. We were visiting Reed College, which is nearby, so it was perfect for us. Our only caveat: the house is at the very end of a residential neighborhood and near a not-very-pretty intersection. So until we understood the area better, it felt a little industrial. But we found it very convenient. Our only real complaint: the bathroom sink is tiny and the fixture is huge--it's clearly meant for a powder room--so it was hard to wash your face without splashing water all over the floor. However, in general, it was a great place to stay! Did I say that it was incredibly clean?

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

This delightful cottage was immaculately clean. It felt new and smelled new. It is in a busy area but with the windows closed it is quite silent. You will find everything you need in this fully equipped rental-a full kitchen, large fridge and electric range. It is walking distance (3-4 miles) from downtown and close to some good restaurants. The beds are comfortable. I would not hesitate to return here. I had no complaints.
