The hideaway is approximately 800 square feet of space perfect for living, sleeping, & relaxation.

Furnished with both design and comfort as priorities, we’ve aimed to make your stay as cozy as possible.

Ed and Kyle are superb hosts!! The space was so relaxing and spacious. When I walked in I thought “I wish I was staying a week.” The rooms are exquisitely decorated and complete with every amenity a person could need. Super comfy bed and luscious thick towels. You will truly feel like a most welcome and honored guest. Look forward to my next trip to Portland.

What you'll find

Coffee

Portland has a staggering number of coffee roasters, so we encourage you to get out and give them a try (Kyle is quite the coffee geek, so feel free to ask him for recommendations). That being said, if you’re anything like us, often the need for a coffee first thing in the morning is real.

To that end, we have provided a Nespresso coffee maker for your convenience. To operate, turn on using the power button on the top. Raise the silver lever and drop in the Pod. Lower the lever. Press the button for the size coffee you would like (small= 1.5 oz espresso, large=4oz. coffee)

There are several Pods available (listed in order of intensity)

  • Red // Decaffeinato Intenso (DECAF) Dense & Powerful
    Dark roasted South American Arabicas with a touch of Robusta bring out the subtle cocoa and roasted cereal notes of this full-bodied decaffeinated espresso.
  • Green // Capriccio (5/10 intensity) Rich & Distinctive
    A blend of South American and East African Arabicas, with a touch of Robusta, roasted separately to create the subtle fruity note of this full-bodied, intense espresso.
  • Gold // Livanto  (6/10) Round & Balanced
    A blend of pure Arabica from South and Central America, Livanto is a well-balanced espresso characterized by a roasted caramelized note.
  • Platinum // Roma (8/10) Full & Balanced 
    The balance of lightly roasted South and Central American Arabicas with Robusta, gives Roma sweet and woody notes and a full, lasting taste on the palate.
  • Purple // Arpeggio (9/10) Rich & Creamy 
    A dark roast of pure South and Central American Arabicas, Arpeggio has a strong character and intense body, enhanced by cocoa notes.
  • Black // Ristretto (10/10) Powerful & Contrasting
     A blend of South American and East African Arabicas, with a touch of Robusta, roasted separately to create the subtle fruity note of this full-bodied, intense espresso.

Television

When traveling the last thing on our to-do list is watching TV…But sometimes an episode of your favorite show is a good wind-down after a long day of exploring.

We have Apple TV with Hulu, Netflix and HBO subscriptions. There is no network TV available. if there is a game you just have to see, we’re happy to help you find a local spot to support your team.

The TV has a rather annoying power-saving function. you can’t turn it on with the remote–you have to turn on by pressing the button on the front of the TV (below the screen).


Music

Few things make a new place homier more than the right soundtrack.

There is an iPod Touch on the white shelf in the bedroom. On it you’ll find a SONOS app. You can choose your music (via Spotify Premium) and it will play over the speakers in the bedroom and/or the living room. If you need help with the setup, just ask.

Please remember that sounds travels when selecting a volume level (via the app).


Games

Sometimes you just need some analog relaxation.

There are games, puzzles, coloring books (now for adults!) and such on the white shelf in the bedroom.


Temperature

Our house is 3 levels, so a consistent, comfortable temperature throughout is a bit of a challenge. The lower level tends to be cooler than the rest of the house.

There is an in-wall space heater for your use as needed.

If you need us to adjust the thermostat, just let us know.


Towels

We love a soft, clean towel. We hope you do to. But white can be a little high maintenance.

If you need a towel for a trip to the river or a cloth to remove makeup, please let us know. We’ll happily provide a less stain-sensitive alternative.


Toiletries

Forget something? Check the two top drawers in the bathroom for miscellaneous toiletries. Please only take what you need.


Iron

Haven’t mastered wrinkle-free packing? Kyle hasn’t either.

If you need an iron and ironing board during your stay, there is one in the bedroom closet.


Laundry

We are happy to offer the use of our washer and dryer to guests staying with us for four days or more. Please give us some advance notice so that we can be sure we aren’t using the machine when you need it.

If you are staying for one to three days and have a laundry emergency, just let us know.
