The owner of The Everett Street Guesthouse, Terry Rusinow, has an interesting story about how she came to operate the bed and breakfast. She operated both cafes and a food cart before settling at the Guesthouse. Terry is originally from the East Coast, lived in California for 26 years while operating a gallery, before she moved to Portland in 2004. She has filled the home with many pieces from her gallery days, creating many interesting nooks to explore. Artwork includes contemporary sculptures and paintings. There are a few prints included as well.

The home is warm and welcoming throughout. The quiet neighborhood has plenty of street parking. The inn is also within walking distance of several of Portland’s best restaurants, movie theatres, and Laurelhurst Park. The Guesthouse is a casual, no frills bed and breakfast inn providing a peaceful urban oasis for guests. “There are no frilly curtains, teddy bears or potpourri here,” boasts Terry.

Two guest rooms or a cottage retreat

The Guesthouse offers two guest rooms in the main house, which share full bath. There is an additional 1/2 bath on the main floor. Only Sophie’s Room includes a television in the sitting area. Free Wi-Fi and a large outside deck are available for guests to relax and enjoy their visit to Portland, especially nice during warm, dry weather as you can enjoy a wide variety of plants in the garden. There is also a “library room” for guests including a desktop computer, large work desk, refrigerator and day bed.

The cottage

The separate cottage is a studio style option with washer/dryer facilities, a private garden area and heated floors. The cottage rental does not include breakfast as there are kitchen facilities in the cottage, but affords more privacy for those wanting more independence. There is a two night minimum stay for cottage reservations. There is a resident cat in the house which is not permitted in the guest rooms, but something to be aware of if you have allergies. There is no smoking or pets allowed anywhere on the property. Children under 10 years of age are also not permitted as guests.
