This is a good, comfortable, neighborhood B&B that charms with its intimate scale, calm good taste, and rooms decorated with interesting artwork instead of formal spaces loaded with fussy frou-frou. The 1907 Craftsman-style house is typical of the handsome and well-built family homes constructed in Portland during the early 20th century, when wood was plentiful and craftsmanship levels were high. Innkeeper Terry Rusinow, a former gallery owner, has furnished the living room with rich-toned and sturdily comfortable armchairs and a sofa; with its fireplace and glowing fir floors, it’s wonderfully welcoming, as is the dining room, where you get a full breakfast (or not, in which case you save $10). On the second floor there’s a small common room with a computer, and two modest-sized guestrooms that share a bath. Again, no frilly furnishings or potpourri. The cottage in back is perfect for one or two people who want extra privacy. It has its own entrance, kitchenette, washer-dryer, and private patio, and the same calm good taste prevails. This is a good neighborhood to explore: Laurelhurst Park, restaurants, and movie theaters are within walking distance, and you can get downtown in minutes on nearby public transportation. No children.
