Seeking a great central-city location but want quiet for R&R at the end of the day? You’ve found it here, with Guest House NE PDX, a colorful, private, single-level ADU (accessory dwelling unit) with secluded sun-washed patio - all just a few minutes’ drive to Downtown Portland and the airport, and just a dozen blocks from a host of food, art and music venues in the Alberta Arts District.
Enjoy the tropical foliage view! Banana trees are in full glory from July through October, but there’s still plenty of green to gaze upon the rest of the year. A large wall fireplace makes it very cozy for a winter stay, and air-condition throughout provides summer comfort.
Located in NE Portland’s close-in Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhood, the Guest House is within a dozen blocks of 3 different and distinctive urban districts. Alberta Arts District, Beaumont Village and 42nd Avenue have unique vibes to satisfy a variety of interests: Artsy and hip, quiet and more conservative, and an emerging, diverse, grass-roots-developed urban district, respectively. Foods of all kind are plentiful in each of these nearby urban spots – from food carts and artisan pizza to top-rated Beast, DOC, Aviary and Urdaneta. McMenamins Kennedy School is nearby, too. And, if you’re interested in cooking (gas range!) local grocer New Seasons is within a dozen blocks.
A short hop away, explore the Mississippi and Williams/Vancouver urban districts, each with plentiful restaurants, shops and pubs.
The Guest House is just ½ block away from Wilshire Park, a multi-block green space with a variety of amenities, including a walking/running path, ball fields and children’s play structures.

Full disclosure: Reviews for stays prior to October 1, 2018 are for an older property RIGHT next door that had to be "retired" from vacation rental service. It was owned/managed Susan & Peter, as is this property. We include reviews for the former property so prospective guests get a sense of our hosting ability! And, furnishings, artwork, fully-stocked kitchen, etc., were moved to the Guest House. Not so different - just newer and with air-conditioning!Get the full listing »
