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.

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!

Great home away from home in NE Portland
We had a great experience and were lucky enough to stay at this great home in NE Portland. Everything went smoothly with the details and with coordinating with Lil. She made it easy! The home is spacious and had all the amenities we needed. Every detail was covered. I would highly recommend staying here! It’s a great place to stay.

Portland Visit
My husband and I enjoyed our stay and, with the exception of having adequate lighting for reading, found everything we needed. We enjoyed walks to the Alberta Arts area for a meal or two AND to Salt & Straw for ice cream. Thanks to Lill for being a good host.

Perfect place
The pictures show this place exactly as it is and it is extremely comfortable in all aspects. We like to go out all day, then cook dinner once we return to the cottage. This cottage has a very well equipped kitchen with new dishes, cookware, utensils, sharp knives . Condiments, herbs and spices as well as coffee and tea are available. This cottage appears to be brand new in terms of appliances, furniture etc and is spotlessly clean. When we come back to the his area we will not spend one minute looking for any other accommodation. The other nice thing is that the owner is accessible. F Dunsmore

Great location
The cottage is very nicely furnished and feels quite “homey”. It’s quiet and comfortable, and Lill was a lovely host. Excellent location that is far enough away from the busier parts of Portland, yet an easy walk to the Alberta commercial district and Wilshire Park. Very nice stay!
