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.

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'

My husband and I stayed at PDX Eco Cottage for our 3 day trip to explore Portland. Not only is it in a great neighborhood close to the fabulous restaurants on Division, it was so much fun not staying in a hotel and getting the experience of living in this great city! The cottage had everything we could have possibly needed and was a very cozy refuge; we made breakfast and coffee each morning, and it was so nice being able to do laundry. The cottage was clean, great décor, close walk to the food market, we were very comfortable and felt like we were at home; we could not have asked for more. Highly recommend, especially for couples!
Nestled right in the heart of Ladd's Addition is this cozy cottage. This is such a quaint area of Portland and was the perfect place to stay. The hosts, Art and Susan were so welcoming and so helpful showing us around as well. I can not recommend this cottage enough! In fact, I'm afraid to because I want this place to be available when we come back! Haha
We had such a lovely stay in the eco cottage. Everything was perfect.
I love great design and PDX Eco Cottage checked all my boxes. Beautiful area just to walk around in the admire other homes . Location is perfect walking to Hawthorne district for restaurants and shopping. Thank you Susan!!!
We spent Thanksgiving at the cottage. It was everything and more. The location was perfect to discover SE Portland. Many restaurants and shops within walking distance. It was always nice to come back to in the evening after a day of exploring. Susan was very accommodating. We also loved the neighborhood. Hope to be back in the future.
