The SpaceThere is a chicken cottage 30 yards behind the people cottage and you may have a wondering visitor who come by and see what has dropped from the bird feeder. I am steps away from “The Kitchen” cooking school which is right across the drive way. This is country living at its finest if you are into trying out the tiny house living experience. If you are looking for a big luxurious bed as a getaway, this is probably not the best place for you.

~NO WiFi but acceptable Sprint & Verizon coverage if you want to run your own hotspot Guest AccessYou will be welcomed by John the owner of the property. He will Check you in and give you the walk through of the Cottage. You will be parking in a grass field so footwear should be appropriate for a walk in the country rather than heels for a more urban environment. You have full access to the Cottage but I would recommend staying on the ground floor if you are not comfortable with ladders, heights, or need to access the bathroom during the night. Interaction with GuestsBoth John and I are available by text, phone, and email to address any urgent questions. We have provided lots of info on things to do in the area, and would be happy to give you personalized suggestions for exploring the Portland & the local area! The NeighborhoodThe Cottage is in a unique setting in a fenced in pasture with an open field to the right and a large stand of fir trees to the left, across the drive way is "The Kitchen" Cooking School. The Chicken Cottage is 30 yard behind you and most chickens don't want to have anything to do with people so you should not be bothered, there is NO rooster. You have decent cell coverage for Verizon and Sprint. I don't have an ATT device so I don't know what their coverage is like. The closest people dwelling is 100 yards away, with all neighbors on each side trusted friends. Getting AroundAlthough very quiet & rural, the Mini Mobile Cottage is just a 5-minute drive to coffee shops, restaurants & grocers, it is a quick 10-minute drive Bridgeport shopping center, and 20-minutes to downtown Portland (when there is no traffic, good luck with that). Other Things to NotePlanning a special getaway and/or want to do something special during your stay. Let us know we can be very creative. We would love to help make your stay as delightful as possible! Price negotiable.
Unique features of the tiny house:
*Ceiling clearance in the kitchen is 6’ 4”.
**Climbing in and out of the loft bed on a narrow, steep ladder requires agility and balance. Please see the photos in this listing and consider whether you will be able to climb up and down from the loft without putting yourself in danger. It would be my suggestion that you sleep on the Futon couch on the lower level. There is full bedding provided but you will have to make your own bed. Welcome to tiny house life. I have freshly cleaned sleeping bags in the loft.
***With a Catchment system for rain water I do not drink the faucet water and do not recommend it. I have a large ceramic water container on the counter and provide bottled water to refill it, please use this for drinking.
Other important details:
