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 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 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 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.

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!
Very nice place, comfortable bed and lots of restaurants close by. I would highly recommend this place.
Great place was very organized and cozy! Felt very much at home...
Glad you enjoyed it. It was a pleasure hosting you.
Wonderful stay in this cozy cottage. Fantastic location, great host. Thank you!
Thank you! Enjoyed having you both. Come back again.
Very comfortable, great location
My first visit to Portland to visit my son and daughter in law after their move. Was lucky to find this cottage that was close to their home. The cottage was very comfortable, quiet and clean. Owner, Terry had it well stocked with snacks and toiletries. I will look to stay there again on my next visit.
Thanks Virginia. Enjoyed hosting you and so glad it was so near to your son's family. Hope you'll come another time.
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?
