This quiet, affordable guesthouse in the heart of Southeast Portland is ideal for people who want the feeling of living like a local. It’s on a major thoroughfare that cuts through A lovely residential stretch of southeast Portland, but is set far enough back from the street that you won’t hear much traffic noise. It’s also in an actual house (built in 1910), which is decorated to give it the look and feel of a home rather than a hotel. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen here, and there are a few large supermarkets nearby so it’s pretty easy to stay here without having to splurge on restaurants. A continental breakfast is included in room rates. There’s also Wi-Fi and a guest computer here for those who have forgotten to bring their own as well as a small garden for guests who want to commune with nature.

It’s hard to imagine that a house with virtually no space between it’s neighbors and residing on one of the busiest streets in Portland’s Southeast area could feel secluded, but this does. The gate surrounding the house is completely lined with trees and the yard and porch are quaint enough to forget all the busy-ness as soon as you walk through the orange front door. The guest book in the front room raves about the place and has testimonials from people who have stayed multiple times. The personal touches like a breakfast nook with two small bench seats and drawn curtains are well suited for the older house as are the social rooms with warm walls and antique furniture that draw you in. The bedrooms are simple with a vintage vibe and each is different from the others. A possible drawback would be that there isn’t any staff on-site after 4:30, though there is always someone on-call.

This clean and basic guesthouse in has its charm and is marketed toward the visitor who needs little more than a comfortable bed to stay for the night and a light breakfast.
Located in a hundred year old house close to SE 35th & Division, the guesthouse is in easy reach of downtown Portland, the Hawthorne Blvd. area, and local area cafes.
The seven rooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms, are clean and functional. The guesthouse provides a continental-style breakfast. There is also a kitchen where guests can cook their own food. The usual amenities such as wifi are provided free.
For what it is offering and considering the location of the guesthouse itself, staying here could be a very comfortable alternative to the closer in hotels or B&B's!
