À propos de ce logement
'The Captains' Bed' is inspired by tales a friend told of great old ships on the North Sea. It is wider and longer than a standard twin; roomy enough to sleep 2, head to toe or side by side. Out the windows are fragrances of the evergreen garden.
Here's a unique place to find yourself; a beautiful peace of countryside located 12 minutes S.W. of downtown Portland, Oregon. There's a a bit of old world here; a sweet retreat from the hipness & culture we love about Portland.
This bed is custom built into a large window nook. It is elevated and this might be an issue for some people.
'The Captains' Bed' is inspired by tales a friend told of the great old ships on the North Sea, It is elevated in height, wider than a standard twin and long enough for the friendly to sleep head to toe. The mattress is a combination of latex, foam, feather & cotton. Couples like the coziness. Others relish the solitary comfort. Sheets are good cotton, blankies are down, wool or silk. Colors are rich and calming. The room has lots of storage and an old writing desk with some blank pages of good paper.
The common areas are shared with other guests or possibly ourselves:
The bathroom floor is heated beneath the smooth blue pebbles; the shower is built for two.
Vintage kitchen is updated & easy. But why cook? I'll provide easy breakfast fixins'; you can make your coffee, tea, or juice in the Vita Mix.
There's a fire pit down by the grapes, and the hot tub is beneath the timber bamboo. Chickens are clucking across the creek. Our old dog Joey just watches them now.
The wood stove can be a warming comfort any season.
The home is nestled in the quiet & beauty of mature heritage gardens with an old forested park down the lane. You can enjoy hikes through the woods, over the stone arched bridge, or find refuge here, indoors & out. There's some good art and great books in every room.
Its probably best to have a car to get here; frequent public transport is a 15 minute walk away; the bus up at the corner only comes once an hour and the winding roads don't have bike lanes, but I have biked to town in 30 min. There's an organic grocer up at the corner and a few restaurants nearby but not of much note for a foodie; for that you've got to go to town!

Échanges avec les voyageurs
Socializing with us is entirely optional.
We have our own kitchen, baths and living spaces on other floors of the house. We are friendly people who appreciate both privacy and conviviality.
The Marshall Park Neighborhood is named for the forested park just down the road. It has the quiet big trees and feel of the country while being only minutes to downtown.
OHSU, Lewis & Clark College, The Willamette River, Multnomah Village, Hillsdale, John's Landing, Sellwood, & Lake Oswego neighborhoods are moments away.
It's best to have a car to get here; frequent public transport is a 15 minute walk away; the bus up at the corner only comes once an hour and the winding roads don't have bike lanes. A bike ride to town takes about 30 min. but longer coming home; it's up a good hill.
We ask guests to be mindful of the soundscape.
Voices can carry; its an old house.
The home is on a hill with steps and stairs to negotiate.
The Captain's bed is custom built; it is wider and longer than a standard twin and is elevated by two-steps. This could be an concern for elderly or very young ones.

Hospitality comes naturally to us. We've come to learn that our most enjoyable guests enjoy taking care of themselves--and cleaning up after themselves. We love the simplicity, comfort and beauty of our home place, and we welcome you to find magic in the ordinary. The guest rooms are on a separate floor from our living spaces, with 3 entrances to the garden. The garden is large & lush, with meandering paths and private places to be alone or together. It's quiet here; the air is fragrant and full, with bird songs, creek sound, and honey bees. He is a farmer and I'm a psychotherapist. I see possibility and he likes hard work. We've been a good team; having found this crooked old house on a trash dump creek 20 years ago; we've cared for and cultivated what has become a very special place. We thrive on good conversation, food, music, books, art, wine, dance, & laughter. We also like our privacy, and the structure of the house provides plenty of room to choose that. You can choose solitude or conviviality here as you like. It's a beautiful place to gather with a small group of friends if they like to talk softly or go away by 10 pm. Sound carries through the floors, so there's headphones to wear if you want to blast the stereo or watch a movie late. The TV isn't hooked up; it's good for DVDs and maybe Netflix. There's some real food in the kitchen, fresh sheets on the beds, good towels, toiletries, espresso & tea. Namaste.
