Although not in downtown Portland, the St. John's Area was very nice with plenty of restaurants and activities, some within walking distance. It was also very convenient, however, to the downtown area and very convenient to interstates that got us to mountain hiking and to the coast.
The Cozy Cottage was an excellent, comfortable retreat and Oliver could not have been more accommodating. Beds were very comfortable and chairs on the porch were a nice place to sit and have coffee in the morning.
I would highly recommend the Cozy Cottage and will look into staying there again if my travels take me back to Portland.
Tim, our host, could not have been better. The place was very clean, very new, very comfortable. Great cotton percale sheets: nice to have them on the bed. Kitchen also clean and attractive. Same for bath. A quiet and attractive street.
A good deal as well.
