What Past Guests Are Saying
Flavor of Portland in a neighborhood setting
This was a well organized guest cottage, while small the owner thought of everything. I saw reviews about her rules, yes there are some. If you are a messy person who wants to abuse your surroundings because what the heck, you are on vacation, don't stay here. If you want a personal touch, in a place that does reflect the vibe of Portland at a very reasonable price, come here. If you want the flexibility of having a patio, kitchen, and some pleasant amenities of home, this is your place, and you will enjoy eating at El Matodor. The happy hour promo is cheaper appetizers instead of cheaper drinks, but it works out really well. I gave good marks to the kitchen and bath because the kitchen does not have an oven and the bathroom is small, smaller than the one or our cruise ship, but still well stocked and organized.
A comfortable homebase with a healthy breakfast and sophisticate
We loved the Everett St Guesthouse! This B&B; is quiet and comfortable, with clean, simple-yet-elegant rooms, interesting artwork, healthy and delicious breakfasts, and is perfectly situated for enjoying Portland's cooler, vibrant East side while being tucked away in a quiet, family-oriented neighborhood. We appreciated hostess Terry's critical, local perspective of the city, her restaurant recommendations, and her wealth of resources for navigating the city and discovering the best of Portland (there are plenty of maps and guidebooks, not to mention internet access, at a guest's disposal). We were also charmed by the B&B;'s other host, Sophie the cat. We'll definitely be coming back.
great secluded cottage with private patio
the owner, terry rusinow, was very warm and helpful; the cottage was beautifully decorated, nicely furnished, very private, sunny
Perfect accommodation for our Portland visits
We visit our daughter in Portland regularly. Up until this last visit we've stayed in a downtown hotel, but won't do so again. In the Everett Street Guesthouse we have found the perfect homebase for our Portland visits. The comfort, ease and privacy of the house and location can't be beat. Also very important to me, it was quiet at night. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom very nice, the cottage furnishings and decor tasteful, the kitchen well equipped. Staying in the cottage gave us additional privacy, but after touring the rooms in the lovely house, I would be equally comfortable staying in any of those. Terry was the perfect host - there to assist if needed, but not hovering.

Thanks so much, enjoyed having you and look forward to seeing again!
Wonderful space with beautiful plantings, but owner added anxiet
There is so much that is positive about the cottage that I hesitated a long time before writing this review. The quiet, beautiful setting was exactly as described. The owner was very thoughtful about stocking the fridge and making sure other wants were anticipated. The location is excellent - a quiety, shady residential street in a safe area of Portland within easy ambling distance from stores and restaurants. The owner, after giving an initial orientation, left us to our own devices, which was very nice. So - there is much to recommend the cottage. What made a difference for us, a couple of mature, seasoned, and responsible travelers, was what seemed like an over-long list of instructions during our orientation. They ranged from how far to open windows to how to make sure we had really locked doors. We know that the intention was to avoid problems that were seen in the past, but the net result was that we ended up feeling ill at ease. While I would recommend the cottage, I would advise folks to be ready for this.

...I greatly appreciate the positive comments from these lovely guests. The reasons for my instructions have to do with previous guests who were not given these instructions and the results were rather disastrous. If doors are left open to the garage, neighborhood cats can get in and spray or the resident raccoon can wreak havoc not to mention the guest who tried moving the shower head and broke it off the wall. These instructions were meant to help not to hinder. Once they're explained, I leave guests alone to enjoy the cottage. Every VRBO place I've ever rented had a whole notebook of instructions for everything from washer/drier use to how to turn on and off the breakers, I'm so sorry that these guests felt ill at ease and hope they will understand that with the number of different people using this cottage, that I would want to protect
the lovely space I've created.
Great Option for Business Travel
This is the second time I've stayed at the Everett Street Guesthouse, but the first time in the separate cottage. It was perfect to accomodate my business travel, much more pleasant than the standard hotel. Reliable and fast Internet connection was a plus. I would highly recommend it to business or leisure travelers, and I look forward to coming back later this summer to enjoy the patio and nearby restaurants.
Perth, Western Australia
a home away from home
We had four nights in the cottage and enjoyed every minute of our stay. It was very conveniently located for public transport, cafes and restaurants and the nearby Whole Foods made dining in very easy. Everything you need is provided - the candles in the kitchen drawer proved very handy when the power went out for five hours one wintry night! Terry was very helpful but let us have our space. We would definitely recommend the Everett Street Guesthouse and Cottage.

Peace and comfort in Portland
We've stayed here both times we've visited Portland in recent years, and I can't imagine staying anywhere else. For a very reasonable price, you get your own private guesthouse-fabulous modern design with lots of windows and a zen-like bathroom-with kitchen, patio, and garden. For those of us who like clean, bright, airy, uncluttered spaces, this place is heaven. Terry is as talented at interior decorating as she is hospitable. She'll tell you all you need to know about this very hip and conveniently-located neighborhood-the great restaurants and outrageous gelato place, the Whole Foods within walking distance, the beautiful park. Or she'll just leave you in peace, if that's what you want. We think of Everett Street as our home in Portland.
La Palma, CA
This was my first time in Portland, and I wanted to stay in a B&B; that had separate quarters from the main house. This was the perfect place...we stayed in the separate guest cottage and it was simply decorated with modern decor - not the normal country fluff that you find in most B&B;'s. The queen sized bed was comfortable (sheets were fabulous!), it had a nice sized kitchen that was stocked with all the utensils and amenities that we needed, including a fridge & micro, perfect for our leftovers. The shower was modern as well (no bath), and was stocked with shampoo/conditioner & body wash (Terry had the best shamp/cond). It even had its own washer and dryer.
The B&B; was super close to both public transportation (TriMet, their public transit system is outstanding and gets you pretty much anywhere in Portland) as well as a few awesome restaurants. Dove Vivi Pizza & Pambiche Cuban Restaurant are within walking distance & are both excellent.
Terry had some bikes that you could rent, but we ended up doing a bike tour downtown, so never used those.
Everett Guesthouse is in a residential neighborhood and it was very quiet when we were there. Terry was very friendly and accommodating. I think if I had one complaint it would have to be that there was quite a long list of guidelines & tips to follow in our guesthouse that was a bit overwhelming. Other than that, it was a pleasurably stay and I would definitely stay there again when I return to Portland!
Response from terry rusinow - 07/22/2011
Just a note on "the long list of guidelines"...with over 100 different people coming through a year, some are "rental savy" and can figure out things like how to use the washer/drier, making sure doors are locked, etc. But others need written instructions on many things, and in order to protect my lovely cottage, I just write out explanations on various things, many issues created by previous guests, to minimize damage and be sure guests get their security deposit back. I figure it's better to be proactive for a few minutes rather than have some disaster down the road.
