My home is a 1913 Portland Craftsman. The main floor of the house has it's original with hardwood floors and built-ins. The bathroom was beautifully tiled by the previous owner, and the modern kitchen has a high-end gas range along with an adorable breakfast nook.
The "cabin" room is upstairs and spans the length of the house. It's outfitted as a western cabin with a wood stove and cowhide lampshades. There's a queen-sized bed and a double deluxe futon, both are very comfortable. The cabin room has a flat screen TV with a dvd player with streaming video.
A queen bed in my daughter's room is available if you need and extra room. (I host only when she's not here).
My daughters room is adjoined to "the cabin" room.
Speaking of the back yard, there's a fully-fenced area with partially covered deck and a small lawn surrounded by benches and very cozy landscaping.
I don't allow dogs to stay, but my two hilarious dachshunds will keep you company. They love people and are very well behaved.
Location: Minutes to I-5, 10 minutes to downtown Portland by car, 20 by bus. 25 minutes from the airport. Safeway, Trader Joes, and New Seasons Market (think local Whole Foods) are all close by along with cute/funky shopping districts with restaurants, bars, and countless coffee shops.

Emily, her house, the dogs...it was all wonderful. Easy to find and easy to get to get anywhere. She was a lovely hostess!
We are a family of four with two small kids and Emily's house suited us perfectly! We didn't spend much time there during the day, but when we did, the accommodations felt clean and private. There is a shared bathroom and you can definitely tell that dogs live there, but being dog-lovers, this was fine with us. Emily made coffee in the morning, offered bagels and made us feel welcome to whatever we needed.
We spent four days in Portland attending a conference and were initially skeptical to the logistics of getting to and from the convention center downtown. However, we had no trouble getting back and forth using public transportation even late in the evening. The Cabin Upstairs may not be centrally located, but it is a comfortable and quite place to stay. Ask the host for recommendations and she'll gladly help find a few hidden local neighborhood restaurants and cafes nearby if you want to avoid the crowds downtown.
The house itself is cozy, with more than adequate sleeping arrangements and space.
We had a great time at the Cabin Upstairs. Our kids loved to get greeted by the two dogs in the morning while we prepared breakfast.
The cabin upstairs was lovely and perfect for us as a family of four. Since we also had the bed downstairs we had plenty of room.
The location was excellent for us to go visit our old neighbors close to SE Division Street. Division Street has seen many new and excellent restaurants opened in the last year. These are only an easy walk away from the Cabin Upstairs.
Unfortunately Emily was away while we stayed, so we did not get to see her. Perhaps we get a chance to meet her the next time we stay in Portland.
Emily and her space is incredibly lovely - she provides the kind of heritage home getaway that you dream of! We were greeted by two lovely and friendly dachshunds and a very spacious & clean set of rooms. The upstairs cabin is so charming! Thanks again for the bagels and strong coffee in the morning! Really got the day started! I'd recommend this space to anyone looking for a place to stay in Portland.
Emily's home was lovely and clean and I couldn't get over our darling canine hostesses (though my boyfriend kept giving them silly new names every few minutes). Every morning we'd have a little cuddle (and licky) session from them. She wasn't there this last weekend we stayed, but she was very communicative and friendly. It's a little further from the Hawthorne area than I'd thought, but that's my fault. Still not far and we had the best sleep on that bed! So comfortable. Would highly recommend! Thanks Emily!
Emily was a delightful host and her beautiful and well-ordered home comfortable and well positioned for me to get to dinner and a concert at The Aladdin. I slept better than I have in a very long time in the cozy Cabin Upstairs. The bathroom, with its black-and-white tiles and built-in cabinets, was high-quality and clean.
Emily treated me to a delicious warm breakfast and coffee, her sweet little dogs basking in the sun in the living room. The Cabin Upstairs fulfilled my needs perfectly, but the best part was Emily, herself, and the intriguing conversation we had about literature, healing, capturing story, and life on the East Coast vs. West Coast. After our conversation, I felt like I 'd made a new friend. She was kind enough to give me a lift to Powell's on her way into town. I would definitely return when in Portland!
Emily was very gracious and helpful, providing some local information. The house was clean and quiet. When I said I was a bit chilled, she brought in an extra blanket and space heater. Three of us stayed at her home and the sleeping arrangements were perfect. I don't know Portland well, but we seemed to be in a good area, close by to everything.
The Cabin Upstairs is a really charming room in the upstairs of Emily's home. We were out and about for most of our visit, but our time there was really enjoyable. The space was really clean and the beds were comfortable. There was also a separate climate control unit upstairs which was a nice touch. Emily had clean towels put out and coffee ready for us in the mornings and was a very thoughtful host all-around. We did get a few minutes to chat one morning and she was very cool. I definitely recommend this place!
This review is overdue. We had a lovely stay at Emily's with our 8 month old daughter. Her place is so beautiful and comfortable and the stay was a big part of our Portland experience. She's great host too, made lovely coffee in the mornings and was super-helpful with tips on itinerary and places to eat...
