This lovely guesthouse is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, but just two blocks from a fabulous choice of restaurants and interesting shops. The owner is a delighful person and an excellent cook! The home is immaculate and very tastefully decorated with textiles and interesting objects from around the world. Lovely deck and garden to enjoy in good weather. I stayed in Sophie's Room, a large and very pleasant room facing the street. There's also one other room (even larger and more delightful) upstairs, along with a shared bathroom and common room with refrigerator, computer, reading materials, etc. All told, a quiet, comfortable and elegant place to stay. Those allergic to cats should be forwarned that there is a cat (that's Sophie) who spends time in the house but is not allowed in the guest rooms upstairs.

It's about an 8 minute drive to the Pearl District, downtown and other interesting tourist locations. The inn and cottage is host to many folks visiting their grown children or grandchildren as well as visitors exploring all the great things Portland has to offer.
