“A lovely place to stay...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2011

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.

My husband and I took a long weekend in Portland to celebrate my birthday this year, and we stayed three nights with Terry at the Everett Street Guesthouse. The house is beautiful, it's gardens smelled great, and the neighborhood is fantastic. We stayed in the Wellfleet room, and while you share a bathroom with the guests in the other guestroom, there is only one other guestroom, so it's not a big hassle. The bathroom is spacious as well. Our room was perfect, lots of space to relax and pile all of our stuff from our shopping adventures. Terry is charming and detail oriented, and her breakfasts were delicious. She doesn't serve 4 pounds of food which you feel obliged to eat since she went through the effort, rather, she serves a reasonable, filling, and tasty breakfast. And breakfast was different each day. Tea is available at any time as well.

The location of the guesthouse is worth mentioning since it seems like it is far out of downtown. Once we arrived at the guesthouse, we didn't use our car again until we were leaving town. We walked to downtown and we also walked around the neighborhood, for it is worth the attention. There are MANY fantastic restaurants, cafes, shops, (cheap!) movie theaters etc., just a few blocks away. The locals have pride in their homes and their gardens and I thoroughly enjoyed my morning walks checking out everyone's yard!

If you are headed to Portland, I highly recommend this guesthouse.

Room Tip: book early!

A girlfriends' getaway brought us to the Everett Street Guesthouse. I had found the website;saw the photo's ,and read the reviews: yet I still underestimated what a great place this is. The location was easy to find, with generous parking on the street.The house is very clean! The vibe is inviting and relaxing, surrounded by an amazing art collection and the scent of delicious breakfast each morning. Terry, the owner is a warm and generous host with a wealth of information on things to do, as well as the best places to eat.
I look forward to my next visit.

My friend and I stayed here when we were attending a yoga workshop nearby - and I was also visiting my son. We come every year, and this was the pleasantest place we have found yet. The style is elegant and unfussy. The bedrooms are comfortable and well-appointed. In fact, the whole house is very elegant and filled with interesting and attractive artwork. It is on a quiet street close to plenty of good restaurants and an easy drive to downtown. Terry (the owner) obviously takes pride in keeping her place spotless and well-organized. She served a delicious breakfast, and accommodate our need to be up early one morning by leaving food in the refrigerator.
Highly recommended.

I'll keep this short since there are so many wonderful reviews and it is WAY overdue...

The Everett Street Guesthouse is small, charming, comfortable, impeccably neat (wish I could have Terry keep my house that neat!) and you feel like you're staying with a wonderful sister or aunt. Terry is extremely accommodating, winderfully warm & friendly, and will be happy to chat (or not, at your discretion) with you over your morning coffee and delicious homemade breakfast about all the things to do and see around Portland.

We stayed in the main house and lucked out as we were the only guests that weekend so we didn't have to share the upstairs bath, but I doubt that would have been much of an issue as you're really only around for a few hours a day. Terry also showed us the newly built back cottage (detached) which was really charming and had awesome heated floors - we'll be taking advantage of those next time we're up in P'land during the fall/winter!

The bedrooms in the house are large and have none of the frill of your "typical" B&B (love that aspect of it!). Just a comfortable room with a super comfortable bed (cozy jersey sheets & lots of pillows) and some add'l seating.

If you're headed to Portland and don't need to stay downtown, give the Everett Street Guesthouse your time, weary bones and travel dollars. It's a sweet deal on a great spot to crash!

Everett Street Guesthouse is a true gem. Tucked in a leafy NE Portland neighborhood, it's clean, quiet, very comfortable, and lovingly cared for. The host, Terri, is very friendly and knowledgeable.The neighborhood is full of great eateries and fun places to walk--It seems that every other house has a front-yard garden, and the trees are divine.

Clean, comfortable, the kind of place you don't want to have to leave to explore or work... which we do and then are so happy to come back. I stayed in the Wellfleet room which I recommend for its wrap around windows and chaise lounge, big closet and amazing bed. All the comforts you want are here. Breakfast is community style, very good, but you can duck out if that isn't your thing. The host goes beyond to be hospitable without a note of intrusiveness.
