The Space Here's a unique place to find yourself; a beautiful peace of countryside located 12 minutes S.W. of downtown Portland, Oregon. There's a a bit of old world here; a sweet retreat from the hipness & culture we love about Portland. The home is nestled in the quiet & beauty of mature heritage gardens with an old forested park down the lane. There's some good art and great books in every room. You've 3 of your own entrances into the garden, with decks. The beds have been custom built into window nooks; please note they are elevated and not standard sizes, w/ mattresses made of latex, foam, feather & cotton combinations. One bed is slightly larger than a 'double' and the other is wider & longer than a twin. Couples like the coziness. Others relish the solitary comfort. The red couch in the living room folds out to be a queen size sleeper. Sheets are good cotton, blankies are down, wool or silk. Colors are rich and calming. The bathroom floor is heated beneath the smooth blue pebbles; the shower is spacious. Vintage kitchen is updated, stocked w/ basics & easy. I'll provide easy breakfast fixins'; you can make your coffee, tea, or juice in the Vita Mix. But why cook? There's a fire pit down by the grapes, and the hot tub is beneath the timber bamboo. Chickens are clucking across the creek. Our old dog Joey just watches them now. The wood stove can be a warming comfort any season. With a little notice we can schedule a session w/ a Licensed Massage Therapist here on site. Guest Access:Fully appointed 2 bedrooms, each bed comfortable for 2 who like being cozy; a queen size sofa bed in living room w/wood stove, dining room, vintage kitchen & designer bath. Doors open to 3 decks for the garden, hot tub, or bbq. The Neighborhood- The home is nestled in the quiet & beauty of mature heritage gardens. There's old forested park down the lane with an old arched stone bridge over the creek that tumbles through boulders year round. You can enjoy hikes through the woods or find refuge here, indoors & out. There's an organic grocer up at the corner and a few restaurants nearby but not of much note for a foodie; for that you've got to go to town!Getting around:Its probably best to have a car to get here. Frequent public transport is a 15 minute walk away. The bus at the corner only comes once an hour and the winding roads don't have bike lanes, but I bike to town in 30 min. Accessibility notes: The home is on a hill and there are stairs to negotiate. The beds are custom and two are elevated in height - this could be an accessibility concern. The Rosie Room bed is higher than standard and 6' wider than a full double. The 'Captain's Bed' is elevated and custom built into a window alcove; it is wider and longer than a standard twin. The red living room couch is also a queen size sleeper. Guidelines: I ask that given it is an old house that guests are mindful of the soundscape as loud voices can carry. Smoking outdoors on the decks is OK as long as the windows and doors are closed. In the summer, there are lots of places to find seating throughout the garden.More
