I looked through hundreds of Portland AirBNB listings to find the coolest (and weirdest) places to lay your head. These are my favorites.
I do so much writing about the awesome stuff to do in Portland, but not much about places to stay. But that’s about to change…. Now that AIRBNB is (mostly) legal, I decided to seek out some of the truly original places to stay. Warning: These are all unique places to sleep and many of them are not for everybody. If you want to stay in a cool loft in a trendy part of town, there are NO SHORTAGE of those. Just browsing through the listings I saw at least 5 dozen beautiful apartments and homes I’d LOVE to sleep in. But if you want something a little different and much more memorable try one of these…. #keepportlandweird
Glamping Tent at an Urban Farm: $65/night, SE Portland. Live your dream of farm life, without the work. The accommodations are a little rustic but manageable with an aero mattress and bathrooms across the yard in the host’s farmhouse, but when there are goats and chickens outside your door, who cares!
The Kuza Garden Cottage: $150/night, Alberta Arts District. This is little guest house behind the Yakuza Lounge on NE Killingsworth. The cozy, modern cabin is nestled in a beautiful Japanese garden complete with it’s own hot tub! But the real reason to stay here is the food– you are just steps away from some of the best restaurants in Portland: Beast, Autentica, Cocotte, Expatriate.
The Beacon Cabin: $200/night, Yamhill-Carlton. Ok, this really is not in Portland, but if getting your Pinot on is your idea of a great vacation, you can’t find a better setting than this. It only sleeps two people but the bedroom has a 360 degree view of the countryside. Le sigh…
These are my offbeat and fun AirBNB finds. They are a little unconventional and a little off-the-beaten path. If you are looking for a great location, there are tons, TONS of beautiful apartments, condos and lofts for rent on AirBNB in fantastic Portland neighborhoods like the Pearl District, Mississippi and Hawthorne. But if you want to give the Keep Portland Weird lifestyle a try, properties like the ones I’ve shared here, might be your jam.
