Portland, Oregon
Featured in Sunset Magazine's 2014 'Small Space, Big Dreams' contest for best Small House, this private midcentury cottage, built in 2013, is located in Ladd's Addition, two blocks from Portland's hottest restaurant row - Division Street.

An ideal alternative to a stuffy downtown hotel, this stylish, home-away-from-home, designed with mid-century modern elements and comfort is located in one of Southeast's hippest neighborhood, close to downtown, public transportation and an acclaimed and flourishing restaurant row.

The cottage is small, but really well designed. It's also very warm on colder nights due to the eco build. We found it was really well equipped. The area is really quiet, but is max 20 minutes walk away from a whole host of restaurants in SE Portland, which is the up and coming area for eating. Good coffee abounds...

Management response:

So lovely to have you! Thanks for weighing in about the Cottage and environs nearby. I hope to see you another time and maybe you'll stay in my new PDX Urban Barn nearby. Best, Susan

This beautifully decorated and totally eco-designed cottage in the city was a wonderful find. Nestled in a lovely old neighborhood in east Portland, it was quiet, private, and yet accessible to all one would want to see and visit--either by public transportation or by car. There was lots of natural lighting due to sky lights, the kitchen was very well...

About the neighbourhood
PDX Eco Cottage sits on the South Rose Garden in Historic Ladd’s where the roads are set on a zig-zag around four rose gardens with Ladd’s Circle in the middle. Tall trees line the sidewalks of the streets and you could almost forget you are in a big city.

Ladd's Addition has a 'Walk Score' of 92 and is a wonderful historic neighborhood to stroll or bike (we're right on the designated bike route). The Cottage is located 1 1/2 blocks from public transportation and a block from a children's playground. Click here to see PDX Eco House's location. Funky Hawthorne Blvd. is the northern border of Ladd's Addition with culinary-rich Division St. to the south, gaining prominence for its growing and innovative restaurant row and unique shops. Nearby Clinton Street&#39...
