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 is shared with the host but there is a separate door the guest can use. 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. The neighbors dog "Rocky" might bark at you when you walk by, he's very sweet and friendly.
There are lots of great restaurants and coffee shops close by on Division street!

I like to let guests know in advance that the bathroom is shared with the host but there is a separate entrance for the guest. The cabin room has a flight of stairs going up to it.
I'm a very laid back host. I enjoy meeting new people and chatting but also respect when guests would prefer quiet and solitude.
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) Division street is a close walk from my house and its a cute/funky shopping district with restaurants, bars, and countless coffee shops.
There is convenient public transit in my area. The bus stop is a few blocks away and the #9 will take you directly into downtown. This website is very helpful: (website hidden)
Feel free to come and go as you like. If you come in very late, please keep noise level down.
We had a great visit to Portland, and enjoyed our time at The Cabin Upstairs! Emily was a gracious and friendly host, we had plenty of space to ourselves, and it was a great location and easy to get around. We hope to come back again soon!
The location was perfect! A quiet and quaint neighborhood with a major busline to downtown a couple blocks away, and it was easy to maneuver through streets while exploring. We did not get the chance to meet Emily, but she sent messages to us with all of her contact information, where things we needed were, and that we could contact her with any needs and/or questions. There was a note posted on the door leading to our room, towels and washcloths on the bed, wifi and television for entertainment. The room, bathroom, and rest of the house was very clean and tidy.
Emily was welcoming, cool, and generous in sharing her home. The cabin was clean and the amenities comfortable - it felt like coming home and visiting a friend. This was my first experience with airbnb, and it was a great one. Proximity to the wide variety of Portland restaurants was a plus.
The experience was largely positive, Emily is very friendly and welcoming, and the location near Reed college was what we were looking for. The only drawback is sharing the bathroom with the host: even though she is very accommodating one still feels like one is imposing, and you have to go downstairs to reach the bathroom, having to choose between leaving a light on while you sleep or negotiating some pretty steep stairs in the middle of the night.
I stayed here 2 nights with my daughters and we had a wonderful time. Emily is a great host and she has 2 sweet little dogs that loved our attention. The house is very nice and in a quiet neighborhood. It is easily accessible to downtown and various attractions by car. There are also many nice places to eat within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again my next time to Portland.
