Quiet and Private, yet minutes to everything.
About Terry Rusinow
I built this small lovely sleeping cottage in 2008. It gives guests privacy, as well as their own kitchenette, private garden, and larger shared deck.. I moved to Portland from California in 2004, where I ran a craft gallery for 10 years. I opened my inn in Portland in 2006 and I enjoy hosting people from all over the world. I enjoy kayaking, bicycling, movies and cooking, travel, exploring Portland.. .
Terry Rusinow purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Terry Rusinow chose Kerns
A great place to call home while visiting the Portland area. Guests always say how great it is after a day of sightseeing, to have a quiet, relaxed place that isn't just a hotel room, to enjoy. Also the neighborhood has so much to offer, from movie theater to park to great restaurants...all within a 4 block radius, yet has a quiet, peaceful setting where you can relax after a busy day. Two comfortable chairs, queen sized bed, kitchenette and tiled shower.
What makes this Cottage unique
While I didn't purposely seek out this neighborhood when looking to buy a house, it just happened, and I'm so glad it did. Kerns isn't a very well known neighborhood, but it's walking distance to Laurelhurst and Buckman areas, which are better known. Only 4 blocks to NE 28th street, which is a restaurant/cafe mecca in NE Portland. Where else can you get Cuban, Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean, New Orleans, Southern, Chinese, Japanese, Vegan Peruvian and artisan pizza in one location? Plus the Laurelhurst Movie Theater is a must, and you can buy food, beer/wine in the theater. And Laurelhurst Park is a mere 1/2 mile away and is one of the most beautiful parks in the area.

Lovely convenient hideaway!
Had a lovely 3 night stay here at Everett Guest House. The owner is very nice and inviting. Everything was as described. The place was clean and comfortable. Location was in a very walkable neighborhood with many dining options. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Lovely cottage, all amenities needed. Perfect location in a wonderful neighborhood with plenty to see and do. Terry was the best host, friendly and super helpful. Will most certainly be back.
Thanks so much. Really enjoyed hosting you.
Light & Bright Comfortable Cottage
The cottage was impeccably kept, well appointed, and perfectly comfortable. Terry is a delightful and accommodating hostess!
Everett st guest house-perfect spot!
Our experience was fantastic at the Everett St Guest House. Terry was always just a text or a phone call away if we needed something. She had tons of useful info for us as out of state travelers as well! The cottage was perfect and very clean, organized and cozy. Will definitely be returning for another trip!
Thanks so much. Enjoyed having you. Terry
Kerns is a lovely neighborhood that's only 5 minutes across the Burnside Bridge to downtown, yet quiet and residential. A few minutes walk takes you to NE 28th, known as 'restaurant row', as well as Laurelhurst Movie Theater and beautiful Laurelhurst Park is a 1/2 hour walk through one of Portland's most beautiful neighborhoods. Note: Coming from the airport--be sure to go by way of NE 82nd Ave. to Sandy Blvd. and not the freeway. Will safe you time and, if using taxi/Uber/Lyft, will save you money!
