1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2
About Gretchen Griffith
When we were younger we lost moments by thinking there's more out there. But the lessons of time (being parents has helped), has made us try harder to be present, to let the future be special, but not more special than the now. When the day in day out pushes us too far into the future, traveling always brings us back to the present.
Gretchen Griffith purchased this House in 2017
Why Gretchen Griffith chose Sunnyside
We love Portland, we love calling this city home, so the goal in building the tiny house was building a space that felt like home to travelers, whether it be for one night or thirty. Just stepping out into the neighborhood provides everything you need to feel like a Portlander, but the hope was not only feeling like a Portlander when you are out but also when you come home. The two-story tiny house has a full kitchen with a gas range because this city is surrounded by the best organic produce in the world. The comfy bed looks up at three skylights so you can see what you're sleeping under. The 13 windows turns the tiny house into a tree house. The two red dutch doors because dutch doors are just cool and opening the tops open up the house even more. And the loft lets you stretch and practice yoga, daydream or nap or simply provides a cool space to read.
What makes this House unique
You could come planning to see Portland and be content never leaving the neighborhood. With that said, we also love the key pad lock and how it makes coming and going so easy. And how the downstairs kitchen space is where we always find ourselves hanging out. And how the wrap around porch and side patio is perfect for morning coffee or an afternoon beer and book. And how the tall ceilings and sky lights make upstairs feel like sleeping in a tree house. And the metal porch roof how it makes it hard to get out of bed on rainy mornings. To us there is just something magical about the space. It's in the middle of everything, but quiet and peaceful. It's tiny but it's huge. It's new but it looks two hundred years old. It just feels like home.

Clean tiny house!
We really enjoyed our stay. We especially appreciated the clean, uncluttered space and quiet neighborhood. Many thanks!

The house was fine, but it was 30 feet approximately from the owners main house. His wife and children did work on the property right outside my window on a given day. So, it was as if they were 5 feet away for me working while I was trying to get my work done they seem like nice people, but I don’t know how to be a rental
Martha, thank you very much for the feed back. Being in a neighborhood this close to the center of the city means the houses sit rather close and this means being a good neighbor is both being respectful of our neighbor's privacy and thoughtfully communicating any differences we might have. After two years and over a 150 guest we have yet to receive a negative review, especially a review that speaks to the core value of being a good neighbor in the Hawthorne-Belmont neighborhood. However, we do understand our guest come from all over the world and each might have a different idea of privacy. We hope in the future if a guest has any issues they bring it to our attention immediately so we can ensure they have a wonderful stay.
Great “tiny” house in SE Portland
This is a fantastic little detached guest house in a beautiful neighborhood. We’ve stayed here twice and enjoyed both visits. House is very small by design but thoughtfully laid out and appointed. Fine for a couple. Hosts are interesting and conversational, but they also respect your privacy. We’ll be back!
Top Notch Experience
We had an amazing time at the Tiny House and would come back in the future!
Tiny Portland Treasure
My husband and I enjoyed this tiny house from the moment we arrived. It felt larger than expected and we were able to walk to restaurants. The owners were wonderful and we appreciate their recommendations for local bites. We would absolutely stay there again if back in the Portland area.
Quiet and peaceful
This place is close to interesting shops, food trucks, restaurants, etc. It is also in a quiet and peaceful location. Will stay here again!
