Turn-of-century home in one of Portland's hottest neighborhoods- Mississippi! Spectacular restaurants, interesting shops, amazing coffee & treats, as well as super fun people watching. House is very close to downtown Portland, and only a couple of minutes from the Pearl District, City Center, Rose Garden and Convention Center. Public transportation is easily accessible, and bikes are welcome and safe here. The house is eclectically and creatively decorated with lots of art and vintage/eclectic furniture. The sweet backyard patio and quiet surrounding streets give this house a quiet, retreat-like feeling even though you are close to the center of Portland's creative, bustling energy. The house has 3 private bedrooms each with queen beds. 1 is on the main floor, 2 are on the 2nd floor. Between the 2 upstairs bedrooms is an open room that also has two twin beds. On the main floor is the only bathroom. The house comfortably fits 1 or 8 people. And now we are SOLAR!

I love Portland and the Mississippi Neighborhood. I was raised in this wonderful city and have watched it grow and mature into a vibrant, interesting and creative environment. I am a mother of two fabulous teenage children and got into the rental business to save my shirt when the economy took a dive. I am a contractor who started in the business by doing sustainable and historically responsible rehabs of old Portland homes. When the economy gave me some lemons to deal with, I started making Lemonade by turning my houses into short-term rentals and my contracting business into an Energy Star Weatherization company. I could not be happier with the outcome, as I have met many delightful people in the process.
We purchased this home as our private residence in 2003, and have watched the neighborhood bloom into a wonderfully creative, artistic and vibrant corner of our city. Being very close to downtown, the area has become home to many young, professional families who value the benefits living life simply. Biking to work and using public transportation are lifestyle choices that many of our neighbors have made for their own well-being as well as for that of our planet. Valuing sustainability, the area has become a mecca for exciting businesses such as my favorites, The Rebuilding Center and the food cart collaborative that is just four blocks from the house.
