A family oasis for graduation and a perfect Mother's Day
Our entire family stayed here as we came for our son's graduation from WSU Vancouver. But I'm having a moral dilemma about writing this review. If I say what I really think, this amazing Craftsman home will always be booked and I'll have limited access to my home away from home in Portland. Oh well.
Upon arrival we were greeted with the intoxicating scent of the black locust trees in full bloom nearby. At first I thought it was the tree size pink and red rhododendrons surrounding the propery. I forget the beauty of mature landscaping in the Northwest. If that wasn't enough, a lap around the local neighborhood made me wonder what other hidden gems there are around Portland.
Vacations always seem to be too short. Though we did make use of the BBQ for an economical steak dinner for 8, we only had time for one game from the well stocked games Gary had available, and no chance to watch a movie on the huge flat screen TV, though my son who arrived earlier used the wi fi to apply for jobs post graduation. We went to yard sales area instead of visting the alberta arts District and Historic Mississippi avenue District nearby-probably not the better choice but we are sort of addicted. So many reasons to come back.
The house itself was delightful, but we love the arts and Crafts style. Cove molding, great tile, hardwood, arches and layout were not lost on us. Two spacious bedrooms upstairs and two down with comfortable beds would easily accommodate families with younger children to sleep in with parents. The kitchen had everything you could need except maybe counter space, we had a lot of cooks in the kitchen. There was plenty of cupboard space open too I should have made better use of. When Gary heard we were to BBQ he got right to making sure it was totally ready for us.
The owner was quick to reply to my text questions on details, we were well cared for. But I'm sure there are other nice places to stay in north Portland, maybe you should keep searching. ;-)
Response from Gary Beckler - 05/21/2013
Thank you Angie for the positive review. I am glad you and your family had a wonderful time. It was truly a pleasure having your and your family. I look forward to your next stay at my home.
The owner is very helpful.
The house was very nice, clean and have everything we need. Gary, the owner, was also very nice and wonderful to work with. He was very helpful trying to fulfil our needs and suggested us how and where to travel in Portland.
This house has a short walk to the supermarket,restaurants and shops.
Thanks Gary for renting us the wonderful house.
Great Place For an Extended Stay
I recently relocated to Portland and stayed at this guesthouse for a few months while looking for a permanent place...very nice accomodations, quiet but trendy neighborhood with quick access to highways and the downtown area. Also close to some great bars and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here!
Portland Piedmont Guesthouse felt like home!
If you prefer the comforts of home while you're away from your home, then the Portland Piedmont Guesthouse is the place to stay in Portland! Not only did I have lots of privacy, I felt totally safe staying there. Being able to fix a cup of cocoa or anything else anytime I wanted was such a plus! The entire kitchen was available to me 24/7! The Guesthouse is immaculate in terms of cleanliness and very welcoming. Gary, the owner, is incredibly accommodating and a wonderful host. Just ask... and he will help with whatever you need. He picked me up from the airport when I arrived in Portland (a big selling point for me!), and he even took me on a tour of the city and surrounding areas - including waterfalls! I have wonderful memories of my stay in Portland at the Portland Piedmont Guesthouse. I left having made a new friend, and I know that when I return to Portland, the Guesthouse is definitely where I'll stay!
The Piedmont Guesthouse is a spacious arts and Craft home, in the middle of an historic Portland neighborhood. Convenient to downtown, Universities, hospitals and cultural attractions.
A very comfortable, enjoyable place to stay while in Portland
Piedmont Guesthouse is a very comfortable house in a quiet neighborhood just 3.5 miles from Lloyd Center and maybe 4 miles from downtown Portland, with easy transportation and shopping nearby. The rooms are well-furnished and the landlord, Gary, is a terrific person who goes way out of his way to make sure you're well-taken-care-of. He even took me to the airport and picked me up on my return on a number of out of town trips, at his suggestion. Very accommodating. The bedrooms are beautiful and comfortable. The bathroom, laundry, and kitchen facilities are all excellent and well-stocked. If you want a comfortable, convenient place to stay in Portland, I don't think you could do better.
