Unique hand built cob cottage next to lg. pond w water feature. Lg. fenced and gated yard. Gentle, curving space-made from sand, straw, water and earth . Featured in multiple international publications. The floor is also earthen clay with added radiant heat. Beautiful natural light. It's truly a magical place.
It's a curvilinear earthen structure hand sculpted from water, sand, straw, and clay earth. It features a radial roof with a central pagoda-like skylight. When building the Cob, we used reclaimed and natural materials when ever possible. The insulation in the ceiling is made from pulverized reclaimed blue jeans and the floor is made from the same earthen clay. It has a Dutch door, so you can open the top part for additional ventilation. There are 33 blue bottles sculpted into different parts of the walls to create "blue windows". But if you try to count them you won't find that many. Some ended up getting covered up because, well, there was just a little TOO much blue. It also has air conditioning and a radiant heat floor. The bed is a double and the bathroom and additional kitchenette access are located in the main house outside of the cob cottage. The main house is about 40 steps away. NOTE: Starting October 16th, the Cob Cottage will also include access to a full kitchen + living room area, and the bath will be shared with two additional Airbnb units.

Atención a los huéspedes
We're here if you need us, but you have the option of your privacy while you are here if you prefer. You will likely to encounter several cats on the property that want belly rubs and all manner of attention. If you are allergic to cats this may not be the best fit. We don’t have complete control of keeping the space absolutely cat free.
Otros aspectos destacables
When you arrive, if you are driving, please park on the street. There usually is plenty out front.
The skylights do not have shades on them so the ability to block out light completely is not an option.
Rice paper screens on the windows can be removed to let in more light but also don’t block out the light completely.
Respectful noise levels. Full bath/sitting room/breakfast nook available through back door of main house. No candles. No use of wood stove. Sorry, no pets.

We have lived in our beautiful Old Portland home for nearly 25 years now. As artists, musicians, and coffee shop owners, we’ve been a part of Portland’s transformation into one of the most dynamic and colorful cities in America. Our SE Portland neighborhood was voted one of the most livable in the country a couple years back- I guess if you stick around long enough something interesting is bound to happen… we are fortunate to have a double lot complete with a large koi pond stocked exclusively with goldfish, keeping the raccoons, herons, and our four cats well fed and entertained.
