We were looking to 'experience' Portland and stay somewhere that was unusual, had atmosphere and would be memorable. We did not want a chain-hotel. We wete not disappointed. The house itself is very pretty in a rustic way, with tiny attention to details which make the whole place quite magical. The rooms are lovely and the beds luxurious! The hosts were REALLY sweet and went out of their way for us when we sprung it on them that we wanted to stay for longer! The other people we met there were all interesting and we loved sitting around talking to them. We were so relaxed sitting on the porch watching the world go by. I'll remember it as a highlight of my holiday. It won't be for everyone; you're staying in someone's house and to get the most out of it you need to buy into their way of life whilst you are there. Do that and an exciting new experuence awaits you! Thank you Tierra Soul.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are currently transitioning from renting rooms out B&B style to hosting creative and healing retreats. If you are an Urban Farming pioneer, enthusiast, or gonna-be, a Cultural warrior, jammer, or creator or perhaps a Thinker, Poet, Artist or Dreamer. Then GREAT! We want to meet you and share the wonders of how being connected to one's food creates community, beauty, healing and security. We can't wait to meet you!!!However, we are not a hotel with air conditioning, nor are we a Bed & Breakfast with doilies and syrup-ey sweet hospitality. We are a clean simple Farm community and we love meeting warm, open and creative people. If this all sounds fine to you then this might be a really good fit and we look forward to hosting you. If not, you might be happier somewhere else. ... more less
