    Amazingly well stocked and comfortable cottage

    The cottage was exactly as described- clean, comfortable, and amazingly well stocked.....right down to Starbucks coffee. The location is perfect for restaurants or downtown and close to a great grocery store. Extra perk is parking right at the entrance to the cottage. We hope to be back soon!

    Nicest rental in Portland

    We have stayed numerous times in this area of Portland visiting daughter and grandchildren. This is by far the nicest place we have stayed. The cottage is not only nicely designed but completely stocked with everything down to books and board games. We were very comfortable and look forward to our next visit.

    Truly a zen cottage!

    July 27-31. We had the opportunity to stay in this adorable cottage while we explored Portland and Willamette Valley. Perfect place to return to relax. We found several good restaurants within a few blocks. Alberta street is a street not to be missed! Lill was always accessible with suggestions and responded quickly to any inquiries. We were greeted with a bottle of wine on arrival and a bowl of figs one day after touring! We would stay here again if the opportunity arises.

    Wonderful Stay! YOU WILL LOVE THE ZEN COTTAGE!

    The Zen Cottage is spacious and clean! Highlights include the designated parking space, washer/dryer, and fully stocked bathroom and kitchen. Both the bed and leather sleeper sofa are so comfortable. Being incredibly close to restaurants on Alberta St is a plus! New Seasons, a great local grocery store, is also nearby. Lill is so helpful, kind, and thoughtful! If you're looking for a wonderful place to stay, choose the Zen Cottage. YOU WILL LOVE STAYING HERE!

    Family of four

    We had a perfect stay at the cottage this past weekend. It was quite nicely appointed and comfortable, with a modern design touch and fabulous floor plan. My husband and I were traveling to Portland for a family wedding celebration with two teenagers. It was regrettably a quick trip but we plan to return. The neighborhood is great, accessible to so many things quickly (shops, cafes, restaurants, the park) and a sort ride to great spots around Portland. We have already recommended the cottage to other family who frequent the area.
