PORTLAND OREGON – A REVIEW OF THE EVERETT STREET GUESTHOUSE: COMFORT: The basement Apartment I stayed in was most comfortable—in the heat of the Portland Oregon Summer, it always stayed cool (I was there in July) There was a Kitchen with a Microwave and Coffee and Tea always available plus a small refrigerator – those wanting to save money can take home doggie bags and put it in the fridge for a meal later in the day or the next. I always bought Portland’s famous beer and put it in the fridge for a nice treat in the evening. The Bed was Queen Sized – with clean sheets – super comfortable – there was a window I could open for a nice breeze at night -- and a full-sized closet for hanging up my clothes. I enjoyed the TV with NETFLIX late at night and the Washer and Dryer for cleaning clothes – The owner provided many travel books and travel magazines about Portland – so if you are wondering what to do – these books proved to be highly useful…each of the books had maps giving precise directions and if you needed further help – one could call TRIMET during their Business Hours M – F and they always gave incredible directions – which Bus you could take to go to a specific location. LOCATION: talking about location, the location of the guesthouse is superb. It is about 4 blocks from 28th Street where all the great restaurants are, featuring every type of cuisine. Going a bit further on 28th and crossing Burnside – the major East – West thoroughfare, one can find amazing food trucks with great food at very reasonable prices and a Beer Bus, serving beer brewed rom the Pacific Northwest. Do try the Descender Beer from Bend, Oregon, if you like a crisp, full bodied IPA. Burnside ( a very major thoroughfare and a major East – West Street, dividing Portland North to South ) was about 4 blocks away and you can easily take a city bus downtown or to the Rose Garden (very highly recommended) or to the Reed College Campus with a beautiful park just right next door to the campus, or to the Grotto – a type of religious sanctuary in a beautiful natural park, where one can meditate and get away from the hustle and bustle of Portland. TRANSPORTATION: I took Trimet everywhere and one can buy daily or weekly passes at Fred Meyer. NOTE: I did not rent a car to keep my expenses low: this is why I loved the location of the GuestHouse: everything I wanted, from the Movie Theater to the Restaurants (the Screen Door Restaurant on Burnside, was closeby.
Terry's place was great! Very cute apartment and comfortable set up. Terry has a guide book waiting for you that will help you navigate the area which we found very useful. So many attractions within a very short walking distance: shops, GREAT restaurants, breweries, gelato... and a very short drive to downtown. Portland = awesome city. Wish we had stayed longer. It impressed us so much that we even talked about making the big move!
The Everett Street Guesthouse turned out to be the perfect place to stay when visiting our daughter in Portland. We visit regularly and up until this visit have stayed in a downtown hotel. Staying at the Guesthouse was much more to our liking due to it's location, comfort and ease. Terry was the perfect host and I really liked the quiet neighborhood. We stayed in the cottage and enjoyed the privacy, though after touring the lovely house we would be equally happy to stay in any of the rooms. In the cotttage, our bed was very comfortable, the bathroom very nice, the decor tasteful and the kitchen well equipped.
My husband and I stayed here for 4 days on our trip to Portland. I think we are on the younger end of the type of guests Terry typically gets. We really enjoyed staying here! It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Terry had all kinds of great suggestions of where to eat and what to see. She also is a fantastic cook! We had such wonderful breakfasts in the morning! The only thing that made me nervous when we showed up was that she does have a cat and my husband is allergic to cats. However, it ended up not even being a problem as Terry keeps the house so clean and she doesn't let the cat in the guest rooms. Personally, I loved visiting with Sophie, the cat. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a more laid-back and quiet place to stay. Thanks, Terry!
I enjoyed having you both. My cat, Sophie, especially enjoyed the attention you gave her..she's been talking about it since you left. Hope you'll return again to enjoy Portland.
My husband and I stayed at the Everett Street Guesthouse in July (2011) and loved every moment of it. We decided to take public transportation and walk rather than rent a car and can honestly say that Portland has a great public transit system and is very walkable. We loved the neighborhood that the inn is situated in--it is very close to downtown and also close to wonderful cafes and restaurants that were recommended by our innkeeper, Terry. Speaking of Terry, she spoiled us every morning with an amazing breakfast and was very helpful about where to go and what to see. The rooms, main areas, and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. We would both highly recommend staying at the Everett Street Guesthouse.
The Everett Street Guesthouse is a perfect example of why we don’t look for accommodations at luxury hotels. It’s a beautiful home, tastefully decorated with unique artwork in one of the best neighborhoods in Portland. Fuel up on a delicious breakfast, then stroll a few short blocks to shopping and restaurants. Comfortable beds and plenty of fresh air ensure a restful sleep. If you’re looking to truly experience Portland as a local, the Everett Street Guesthouse is a great place to start.
Thanks so much for your review--really enjoyed having you both--you're now part of the Guesthouse family!
The Everett Street Guesthouse proved to be a delightful place for my three-day visit to Portland for my son's wedding,... much preferable to a traditional hotel. Quiet, cozy, clean, a very comfortable bed, and indescribably scrumptious breakfasts. I wish that I knew about this place when my son was attending college in Portland, and I would've stayed here every time I visited. You will not be disappointed.
Thanks Tom, enjoyed having you here and learning a bit about Rwanda. Hope to see you back here. Terry
I like to visit Portland to spend time with my college aged daughter. I have stayed in many nice, unique places from restored school houses, vrbo properties, boutique hotels--you name it. Because Portland has so many neat places to explore, I tend to enjoy trying different types of lodging. I have officially ended my search and will come back the to Everett St B & B for future visits as this is truely a home away from home. I will tell you in advance, that I am not in any way being compensated for my review. It may sound like one, since I really enjoyed my stay. It is in a good location, walking distance from many nice restaurants and shops. Although it is near a major thoroughfare, it is in a quiet and peaceful setting. The home is decorated with gallery quality art pieces and modern yet comfortable furniture. There is even a nice deck to enjoy the outdoors, when the weather cooperates. My room was spacious, bright and had a large walk-in closet. My room was upstairs with another room, a common area with internet access + mini fridge and a shared full bathroom. I toured the mother in law suite in the back, adjacent to the deck, with a private entrance--perfect for guests who want more privacy and facilities to prepare their own breakfast. The pictures on this site does not do this place justice. The hostess thought of everything--water on the nightstand, lots of great reading material on Portland, even comfy slippers to wear inside. The first morning, I woke up to the warmth of a nice inviting fire and the aroma of breakfast. My breakfast--omg was a-w-e-s-o-m-e. When I checked in, I got to pick from a list of items my favorite foods and from the list, I got a nice substantial breakfast and a variety of things to eat. First morning, I had a pumpkin muffin, poached eggs on toast with a roasted red pepper topping. Yum! The next morning, a scone, oatmeal with all the 'trimmings' fresh fruit. Great coffee, and a huge variety of tea rounded my meal. I even spiked my coffee with the beverage tray in the dining room! The hostess and I hit if off immediately. It was as if we had always been friends. She is well traveled and has had many interesting guests visit the B&B. The price, in my opinion is more than fare for the lovely accomodations and my great breakfast. Definitely one to put on your list if you ever visit Portland.
Thanks so much for your wonderful comments. I truly enjoy having folk here from all over the world and helping to pamper them on their visit here to Portland. Hope to see you back soon!
