About the property

Elegant, Stylish, Comfortable and Very Private Ultra Energy Efficient Cottage.

Sunset magazine honored us with the Small Space, Big Dreams Home Award and we're featured in the September 2014 issue. Additionally, Portland Monthly Magazine highlighted the cottage in their series on cool guest houses as 'a great environmentally friendly place to stash yourselves while in Portland.' The cottage is privately located at the back end of the owner's lot, is full of amenities such as radiant heat floors, skylights in every room, cable TV, wifi, a ceiling fan, full kitchen with a gas stove, oven and dishwasher.

The bedroom has classic, blonde 1950's Heywood Wakefield furniture. 100% cotton sheets and towels; plus shampoo, conditioner and Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap are provided in the sleek shower. We're perfect for one or two or a couple, and up to two additional family members or friends can be easily accommodated for sleeping in the living room on a couch that becomes a full bed, made more comfortable with a memory foam topper. (one child under 2 years old at no additional cost.)

The cottage earned an Earth Advantage Green Building platinum certification for utilizing innovative building practices to reduce dependency on non-renewable energy. A rack for shoes is provided so they may be left outside in summer and just inside in winter.

There are two entrances to the cottage - one from the street with on-street parking and another accessed through the alley. The private patio with seating and a table is all yours with a striped awning to protect from the hot sun in summer.

Ladd's addition has a 'walk score' of 92 - perfect for strolling around the rose gardens or using the nearby bike route to get around the city. Funky hawthorne blvd. Is the northern border of Ladd's with culinary-rich Division St. To the south, gaining prominence for its growing and innovative restaurant scene and unique shops. Nearby clinton st.'s bars and coffee shops as well as restaurants round out why this area lands you in the heart of what makes portland unique - small, boutique restaurants, an independent movie theater and one-of-a-kind businesses for shopping. We are a block from a children's playground.

About Susan Moray

I've lived in Portland's Ladd's Addition neighborhood for over 21, originally hailing from L.A. And living for a few years each in NYC, Maui and the Eastern Sierra mountains. Hospitality is in my DNA, having previously managed vacation rentals in Nicaragua and on Maui. I'm a passionate home birth midwife and in my off time I garden, growing perennials and organic vegetables, am an avid traveler, backpacker, fly fisher and cyclist. I love to eat and seek out new fine dining opportunities as well as unique food trucks and i'm happy to share them with you. During your stay, i can lay low, offering privacy or be a resource for your intro to portland's many interesting offerings. For inspiration, these evocative words speak volumes to me: 'let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray......Rumi'

A Perfect Experience

  • 5 of 5

The owners Susan and Art were wonderful people. The cottage was just what I was looking for, quaint, comfortable, incredibly well equipped and eco friendly. The neighborhood is full of lovely historic cottages, gardens, and centrally located, easy access to markets, restaurants and shops to walk to if one desires. I never had any problems finding a parking spot, actually for the two days there was parked almost in front of Susan and Arts home. If your looking for something so much embracing, comfortable and so much better than a Hotel I would highly recommend the Eco Cottage. I know I will be recommending it to my friends who travel to Portland from the East as well as the West Coast and will be my go to place to stay when I do.

Cosy property in lovely suburb

Perfect for a couple. Close to public transport. Only minor quibble was that one element in the toaster had died.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. And for the heads up about the toaster. I have a second that I could have replaced for your use, if I'd know while you were still here. I will now. Susan
