Our cozy alberta arts (concordia) neighborhood accessory structure is a separated and private living space in our home. It has two separate sleeping areas with two queen beds, and a small bath. It is in a historic house that we live in built in 1904 with a beautiful garden space to relax in. It is city central with downtown about 10 min away.
Alberta Arts (Concordia) Neighborhood
(NE 30th and Killingsworth)
Our house is located in the heart of the Concordia neighborhood just half a block from diverse restaurants, natural food grocery stores, yoga, hair salons, massage studios etc…
Famed Portland Alberta street is just a couple blocks away with a diverse selection of retail, entertainment, and more dining experiences within a loving vibrant community. Alberta offers food for every taste (vegan to carnivore), craving (foie gras, sushi, middle eastern, southern, to Thai), popular Salt & Straw Ice Cream, and budget (PBR to wine bars). Infused with locally owned shops, cafés, bars and galleries, this Northeast Portland street is famed for its monthly Last Thursday street fair, but offers entertaining options any day of the month. We are located just two blocks away from The Kennedy School with a soaking hot tub, bar, and $3 movie theater where you can enjoy a drink and food on their vintage couches. On the same block is our amazing local grocery New Seasons or Alberta street co. You can walk or bike though one of our numerous beautiful parks or community gardens. There are also numerous bus lines within a few blocks walk that take you all over the city or rent a zip car or car to go. We love our neighborhood for offering the diversity of all these things, but with the peace and quiet of a neighborhood and plenty of safe on street parking and quiet to listen to the birds sing.
ABOUT THE SPACE
It is a renovated private daylight basement accessory structure with your own entrance opening up to the garden. We live in the house, but have separated the spaces so you have a private entrance. Our guests have love our location and amenities and we are happy to share it with them and hopefully you. This is a space that is part of our home.
We also offer use of 4 free bikes for your wanderings around town.
You walk around the side of the house to enter along a stone path past the gate to our beautiful garden and fire pit area that we share with you.
We created this space to be comfortable, and cozy. It offers two queen sized beds in the spacious large bedrooms plus a full pull out, a small one person shower bathroom with toilet and sink, kitchenette, living room area, and backyard deck to lounge on or escape the rain drops outside. There are about 7 stairs to enter the space so keep that in mind if you have trouble with stairs.
For extra guests there is a queen size futon and a full size futon if needed. Please advise if you are over 3 people sleeping. We do ask a extra person fee of 20 a night per guest over 3.
Our house is on the older side (1904!) so sounds do carry but we are early sleepers and are respectful of your needs.
Please try to observe the neighborhood quiet times of 10pm to 6am. Though we tend to go to sleep round 1130 so if you want to listen to some good music we have no problem with that and offer some speakers you can hook up to your computer or phone.
If you need help with anything or just want a good recommendation just text us or if we are home you are welcome to knock or visit with us to make your stay in Portland and in our amazing home a good one.
