With Portland’s focus on environmentally friendly development at the heart of its identity, we have secured a secure spot in the list of top-ten cities for eco-architecture. Eco-friendly apartment buildings, clothing boutiques, brew pubs, and farm-to-table restaurants rule the town, so why not an eco guesthouse?

The brand new PDX Eco Cottage, located right in the heart of the beautiful rose gardens of Ladd’s Addition off of SE Division, offers luxury energy efficient accommodations to enjoy an earth-lover’s adventure through the hippest parts of Portland.

Built in 2013 with mid-century retro flair and blonde Heywood Wakefield furnishings, this 500-square-feet eco cottage built to avoid dependency on non-renewable resources sits 40 feet behind owner Susan Moray’s 1920’s craftsman house and is perfect for one to four guests. One of the most walk- and bikeable neighborhoods in town, Ladd’s Addition offers great access to Portland’s finest without ever having to set foot in a car.

Long-time Portland resident Moray offers a deep knowledge of the area’s bountiful culinary and cultural hot spots and provides customized recommendations for visitors exploring the endless restaurants, markets, breweries, coffee houses, and yoga studios steps away from this eco-friendly door.

Starting at $140/day. Book at portlandvacationcottage.com
