Beautiful University Park Art House In N. Portland, Near U. Of P

Portland vacation home in University Park, walk to University of Portland
This spacious, comfortable well-appointed two-bedroom, one bath home is the perfect place to land in Portland! A short four-block walk from the University of Portland, the Art House is a convenient launching pad for any neighborhood you’d like to explore in the city – just to start, you are near the St. John’s, Alberta Arts, Mississippi/Boise, Overlook and downtown neighborhoods.

Called the Art House, the 1924 bungalow showcases art and designer furniture by some of the area’s best artists. You can simply enjoy the art, you can purchase it (all artworks are for sale), or you can book an art class during your vacation with the owner, whose onsite studio is in the garage!

There is plenty of space and all the amenities you need to make the Art House your home away from home. The two air-conditioned bedrooms -- one with a new king bed and one with a new queen bed– are outfitted with luxurious 100 percent cotton linens. The bright full-size bathroom sports an extra-long tub and shower. WiFi is available throughout. The living room has a working fireplace and hosts two sitting areas, including a television with cable and DVD player. The dining room seats six at the handcrafted, curly maple table, and is the perfect place for romantic dinners or family and friend gatherings. The spacious kitchen has everything you need for cooking.

The Art House is a non smoking household - all smoking must be done outdoors.

The Art House sleeps four people in comfort. There is also a comfy foldout cot if you need another single bed. It is perfect for city visits, romantic getaways, visiting relatives (including students at the University of Portland), visiting faculty, family holidays, weekends with friends, or solo travelers and professionals who crave a more homey atmosphere than a hotel can provide.

The Art House is pet friendly – well-behaved dogs are welcome with pre-arrangement and a deposit. We have a dog cushion for them! Shared with the owner is a fenced back yard with a quiet patio, and a ready BBQ for grilling.

One off-street parking space is available, and there is plenty of street-side parking in this peaceful and quiet neighborhood. You will sleep soundly!

The onsite owner, Leah, is an artist and art teacher, who lives and works on the property in a separate unit -- her painting studio is housed in the converted detached garage. She is available if you need help, and is always happy to tour you around the studio, but will otherwise leave you alone to enjoy a peaceful vacation.

Wonderful Property and Host!!
I was in Portland to prep for relocating to the area in April. Leah was wonderful. The property was perfect and the beds were extremely comfortable. She took the time to stock the kitchen, bedroom, and bath with more than just the basics. She also provided a lot of insights as a local that made my trip that much more productive.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy with great location
We were visiting the University of Portland and this was the perfect location to walk to campus. Really cute neighbourhood and house, great host and we loved having a wood burning fire while we relaxed in the evening.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely house, very clean with everything we needed. Leah was very friendly and welcoming.
The house was clean and beautifully furnished. Close to UP and in a quiet neighborhood. Our host, Leah, was very friendly and welcoming. Very thoughtful to have dog bowls and food -and a nice bottle of wine too! Great place to stay while visiting our daughter at UP. Have already recommended to a friend and we will be back to stay in the future.
