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 have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. 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 Portland

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 can you get Cuban, Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean, New Orleans, Southern, Chinese, Japanese and artisan pizza in one location? Plus the Laurelhurst Movie Theater is a must, only $4.00 to get in and you can buyfood, 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.

A great find in Portland!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for four nights. Terry has done a great job of creating a comfortable getaway. The cottage has every necessity, was clean and inviting, and has lovely outdoor space. The bed was so comfortable that I slept 11 hours the first night! Convenience to transportation and restaurants was also a big plus.

Loved our stay in Terri's cottage. It was clean, cozy, and charming. This place exceeded my expectations (which tend to be high) and we've already recommended to friends.

Location was great. Easy walk or bike to great parks restaurants and pubs.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cottage. Everything was there that was needed. We would have liked to enjoy the outside space in the morning with the coffee provided by Terry but Portland's weather was not going to allow this. Also be aware that Terry also offers bikes to rent at a very affordable rate. I wish I had seen this on the web site before renting elsewhere. On Our next extended stay we would stay here again

Perfect hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved Terry's cottage! It's very unique in design and also very comfortable and relaxing. We came and went and the cottage was perfect the hideaway from the mainstream. We kept some breakfast, snacks and drinks in the refrigerator, ready to take on the road. There's a coffee bean press for making some fresh, hot coffee. All idea amenities. AND, you'll love Terry! Bright and cheery and funny! Very accommodating too!

Perfect Portland Pad

  • 5 of 5

Anyone coming to Portland should stay at the Everett Street Guesthouse. My husband and I stayed in the lower-level apartment, and it was cozy yet spacious, well-appointed, and private. Terry is a great host, and provided us with some excellent dining recommendations. The bed is super comfortable, soft enough for my husband and firm enough for me. The neighbourhood is fantastic, and Terry provides a handy booklet of all nearby amenities. We felt so at home...we were tempted to move in permanently!

Home away from home

Terry was very friendly and accommodating. The cottage was everything we expected and more. We definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a cute place to stay with shops/restaurants and public transportation very close by. Thanks 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, $4.00 to get in and food and beer--what's not to like?
