About Dan Kent
We're a Portland family with three kids and two dogs. Dan runs a West Coast environmental nonprofit and Tami is a physical therapist, founder of an alternative health care practice, and an author. The kids are 17, 14, and ten. As for the dogs, Moka is a 6-year-old German shepherd and Timber (go Timbers!) is a 3-year-old French bulldog. The dogs reside entirely in the main house but you may catch a glimpse of Timber in the backyard.
Dan Kent purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Dan Kent chose Belmont
After nearly twenty years of living just a few blocks awayon this same street, we were inspired to buy and restore the main 1907 house a few years ago with the intention to also build the eco cottage as a quiet urban retreat for friends, family, and our VRBO guests. The cottage was in construction for more than a year and was completed in December 2017.
What makes this Cottage unique
We've restored several vintage houses and we brought all of that experience to this first new construction project with the goal of maximizing the ecological sustainability of the project and ensuring exceptional beauty of materials, natural light, and indoor air quality for our guests.

Clean lines, modern and very comfortable. Vegetation around the eco-cottage is landscaped differently than the photo (mixture of shrubs, small trees and grasses) and is quite nice. And, it is walking distance to many restaurants, shopping and services. Driving/parking in the area is congested and much simpler if you have a small vehicle. Easy to visit the more distant sites around the city as place is so centrally located. For those who would miss it, there is no microwave but recycling and composting readily available. Owner responsive but does not hover. We stayed a week and enjoyed ourselves.
Wonderful place, much attention to detail, great location.
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful and well located space!
A really cute unit. Kitchen and Dining Area light and comfortable.
Checking in and out were a breeze. TV and video options worked well. I like the combination lock on the unit; very easy to use. Lack of parking was an inconvenience, especially in the rain, but our timing must have been good because when unloading/loading the car we were able to find a spot nearby. There were ants in the kitchen and upstairs bathroom, but the owner was aware and had set a trap in the kitchen. He was also quick to respond when I messaged him about it.
This Southeast Portland cottage was perfect for our stay of two adults. The care, thought, and craftsmanship used in building this home shows. The downstairs area includes spacious ceiling height, a complete kitchen and dining space, and tv/hangout area. We had plenty of room to entertain ourselves and a small number of friends. Super-clean. Comfy sleeping spaces, and plenty of closets! The windows are perfectly placed to allow for light, and privacy. The location was convenient (within walking distance) to southeast Portland restaurants, coffee, and shopping. A cozy and peaceful spot for what turned out to be a snowy/rainy long weekend. Thank you!!
Beautiful place. Fantastic location.
Had a great time visiting Portland, and this place made it even better. Would definitely stay here again next time...
