Why Diane Rowley chose Mount Tabor
The Garden Cottage is a comfortable, clean, light-filled, refuge with a peaceful garden view..... a great place to hang out or come back to after a day of exploring the Portland area, or visiting family. It has everything you need....a home away from home.
What makes this Cottage unique
This location is in a quiet, historic, established neighborhood, and has excellent access to the many amenities of Portland and its surroundings. It is a beautiful short walk to the historic Mt. Tabor Park and easy access to anywhere in the city or hikes in the Colombia Gorge. Only two blocks to the neighborhood coffee shop and restaurant and a few more to the neighborhood theater where you can see a movie for $4 and have a pizza & beer. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby along with city bus stops and MAX light rail access within easy walking distance.

Love staying in a garden!
The garden was my favorite thing about this rental... such variety of blooms and birds! and a fabulous, enormous evergreen (which I think was a Douglass Fir??) which provided wonderful shade. I loved eating meals and reading on our little porch. Communication with hosts was excellent and response time was quick. They were great to wash our clothes when our washer broke, and then fixed the washer in record time. The apartment is well equipped and furnished with all the comforts of home, and I liked that we had plenty of closet and drawer space to store our own clothes and things. We could walk to restaurants, and the apartment was convenient to Mt. Tabor Park, Hawthorne St. shopping, yoga, and grocery stores.
Charming! Relaxing and well-maintained. Thank you to our hosts!
Restorative and Lovely
Every detail was perfect and the cottage is immaculate. Perfect for a quiet getaway.
We loved staying here! The outdoor area is lovely! Thank you so much!
This is a beautiful house! The hot tub and sauna made the stay 10x better. Diane was wonderful & very helpful. If I come back to Portland I will definitely stay here again. If I could give this house more than 5 stars I would.
Glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the beautiful hanging viola basket! It will be cheery welcome for future guests.
My New Most Favorite Place
This "cottage" is ideal in every way. Very homey, well stocked, comfortable, and clean. Heated bathroom floor!! What a delight. The hosts are accommodating and non-intrusive. I was completely at ease my whole stay, able to cook, meditate, read, sleep very well, truly vacation ( used as a verb). I'll definitely check this place first before any plans to return to Portland.
