Beautiful, Open, Airy, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Complete Kitchen, Washer/Dryer
This lovely open and bright, 1 bedroom, 1 bath cottage is complete with all the amenities you need. It is detached from the house and nestled in the back yard so you and the birds have all the privacy you want. (Landscaping is currently being done by the squirrels) With a fully stocked kitchen, and washer and dryer it is the perfect home away from home. Heat and air conditioning. Smart TV and WIFI. Park right in front of the house. Visiting children or grandchildren? Flying in for business or pleasure or house hunting? My cottage is 15 minutes away from the airport and downtown Portland. Walk to our local volcano, Mt. Tabor Park and stop for coffee or food at our nearby cafes and restaurants. (See "why this property" below for restaurant ideas.)
The Powell Bus #9 will take you right into downtown Portland and the Division Bus #4 will take you to the "scene" on Division. Then you can retreat to the serenity of the cottage.
The cottage is minutes away from Interstate 205 which takes you to Interstate 84 out to the Columbia Gorge. Most hikes are only 45 minutes away and the views in the Gorge are so lovely, ever changing. Driving to Mt. Hood is easy from the cottage by going east on Foster Rd, a lovely 1.5 hour drive through Pleasant Valley, Damascus, Boring, then back on to Route 26 (missing all the stop lights/traffic congestion). Mt. St Helen's is a wonderful day trip, only 2 hour drive away.

About Becky Maloney
I'm a nurse preparing for retirement. I've converted my old garage into the home of my dreams. So, until I'm too old and decrepit to hike, I am excited to share my cottage with you. If you're interested I will be glad to share the best hikes and views not only of this area but Mt. Rainier and the North Cascades.
Becky Maloney purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Becky Maloney chose South Tabor
I love the diversity of the neighborhood. The Asian market, Fubonn, is 4 blocks away. OM Seafood and Restaurant is very high quality. (Hong Kong vegetables is a glass pie plate full of broccoli, snow peas on rice noodles with chicken or tofu.) Petite Provence on Division is the best INEXPENSIVE French restaurant around. Don't miss Arleta Library Bakery Cafe for breakfast! I can walk to Mt. Tabor (our inner city volcano/park) and stop for coffee on the way home. Check out the hospitality section on this website or read the journal in the cottage for more suggestions...and PLEASE add your favorite places and eateries in the journal when you visit!

This is a very wonderful place to stay. It is so clean, well stocked with cooking utensils, coffee and coffee pot. It has a great kitchen, adorable sitting area, lovely sleeping area, and big bathroom. So perfect for my visit to this area. So close to multiple shops and areas to walk. It was just right for being so close to my daughter for the week. I loved the privacy and the openness of the cottage. You could have great light from the outside even when it was raining. It has everything you possibly could want for accommodations while in the Portland area. I am so appreciative of this being available at the time it was needed. Thank you so much.
Speaking of wonderful… You were a wonderful guest. I’m glad you had sunny days in addition to the rain. You described exactly what I was hoping for in putting so many windows in the cottage… To have the cottage bright all year long regardless of the weather. Hope to see you again during future visits with your daughter!
So quaint...really perfect for us.
We were so so pleasantly surprised by everything!! First...this little cottage was SO clean!! That is huge for us. It was perfect for the two of us and so comfortable. It's beautifully and thoughtfully stocked. It was easy to get everywhere from this location. We are already talking about going back to Portland and when we do...we hope that this cottage is available.
400 square feet of luxury
This adorable cottage is organized so well one forgets it's compact. The view from every window shows flowers or trees. The neighborhood is quiet, yet close to main streets with every possible service.
The lilacs are blooming now...As well as the blueberries. I think one will be able to eat handfuls as they walk into the cottage in a month or so. Glad you enjoyed your visit and you are welcome back anytime.
Charming cottage in Portland
We recently spent a week in Portland and stayed at Becky's cottage. This is a very cute, functional property for two people. Becky gave us helpful tips about area restaurants and sites to explore.
We enjoyed our time in Portland and the surrounding area.
Cute clean sweet cottage with all amenities needed!
Perfect place to stay while visiting Portland!
Glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Sorry the weather wasn’t so great. You were totally self-sufficient and left the cottage in great shape. You are welcome back anytime!
Beautiful, cozy, cottage
I love staying at this beautiful cottage! It’s so close to where my daughter lives. I usually make 3 trips a year to Portland to visit her and the family. Thanks to Becky for making this cottage feel like a home! I will be reserving my September stay very soon!
