Why Lisa Merriman chose Laurelhurst
We love our homey 1913 bungalow and we take great pride in it's restoration and landscaping. I designed our guest suite with your comfort in mind. It is just barely two years old. It is bright and cheerful and has an open airy floor plan, high end granite and appliances. The bedrooms have large windows and lots of sunlight. The patio is private and is available for entertaining and has Adirondack chairs, candle lanterns, a fire pit and a large umbrella. Our landscaped backyard is a relaxing backdrop for your relaxation. The house and guest suite are well lit at night for your safety. Please note that video cameras have been installed on the property to ensure your safety.
What makes this Guest House unique
Our Laurelhurst neighborhood has many homes that are historic and have been restored. The streets are pleasant for walking as they are treelined and curved, great for meandering. We are within walking distance to Laurelhurst Park, breweries, cafes and award winning restaurants as well as grocery stores. The freeway on ramps to the 84 and the 5 are very conveniently located just4 blocks from our house. The Hollywood Max station is within walking distance as well. The Max can take you to the airport or across the river into downtown Portland within minutes and as far south east as the Beaverton and Hillsboro communities.

A lovely place to stay
This home is in a lovely part of Portland. It was very comfortable and restful. Lisa is a wonderful, helpful host. We were staying there while running a workshop and it was a perfect place to rest at the end of the day.
Excellent accommodation, location and host.
The Laurelhurst Charmer is located east of downtown Portland in the beautiful and safe neighborhood of Laurelhurst. It is a perfect location for taking the train wherever you'd like to go. The transit center (Hollywood/42 Street) is located within a 5 minute walk from the house. You can take the Red Line from the airport. We saw no need to rent a car. The house is also located within walking distance from good restaurants and Trader Joe's. Get some delicious Chinese food from Chin's Kitchen and spend a little extra for a great meal at the Laurelhurst Market.
The Charmer really is a charming and spacious accommodation and Lisa is an excellent host. Lisa has provided everything one would need for a relaxing stay. We'd definitely stay there again.
Jim and his Terri were wonderful to host. They were very easy to communicate with and fun to chat with as well.
They left the guest suite immaculate!! Not only did they leave our place in great shape, they We’re so thoughtful of our place.
We hope they return as we would love to host them again!!
I would HIGHLY recommend hosting Jim and Terri!!
Cute space, close to transit
my husband and I stayed here for a couple days while roadtripping through he northwest. The space is inviting, comfortable, and very clean. We loved the neighbourhood and how close it is to the major transit lines. The owners live above the unit but are very quiet - we barely noticed they were home!
We had a small issue while we were staying here but Lisa was really responsive and fixed it very quickly. We would definitely come back if we are in the area again.
It was a pleasure to host Heather and her husband. They were great guests and easy to communicate with and left our place clean.
I would recommend hosting Heather and her husband!
We hope they stay here again when ever they come to Portland!
