Utterly unique, stylish north Portland home with great location!
Portland is famous for its beer and this two-story Brewmaster’s Cottage is right on theme. The super quiet and private location is midway between the University of Portland and “downtown” St Johns, Portland’s newest up-and- coming neighborhood.
The owners have dedicated their lives and careers to beer. They are passionate about beer, its history and ingredients. They met through beer, each brewed a unique beer for their wedding, and designed this half-size home to express their creativity the way they love best; through beer.
You’re in for a treat once you pass through the Cottage’s hidden gate. The paved front patio greets you with a mosaic of whimsical, mismatched mirrors. Above the blue front door, you notice the beer-themed stained glass window, one of eight beer-themed stained glass windows handmade by the Brewmaster owners. Inside you’re welcomed by a mini-grand foyer with tiny crystal chandelier, checkerboard tiles, and corbel archway with hand-painted green hop finial. Down the hallway, you spy three glowing green hop pendant lights.
You’ll love cooking in the cozy kitchen, fully equipped with a gas stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave, disposal, and soda fountain milkshake blender. The large window lets in plenty of light, and the subway tile and custom cobalt and green hop tiles of the backsplash keep it bright. Breakfast couldn’t be better sitting on stools at the wide peninsula countertop. Turn around and notice the lighted box shelves and cobalt blue glass collection over the big living room windows.
Later, grab your beer and relax in one of two cozy recliners in the bright cobalt blue and yellow living room. Plan your Portland adventure with a Portland or Pacific Northwest guidebook from the amply supplied bookcase. There’s a whole shelf of beer books to learn about beer styles or chart your course to any of Portland’s 105+ breweries. Use the flat screen TV on the desk as a monitor for your laptop with the included HDMI cable and stay in touch with friends using the free WiFi.
Explore the tiny “secret garden” through the sliding doors with its blue bottles, glass fruit, mismatched mirrors and beer signs. Find the mini bocce ball set for a quick game outside, or grab a board game from the bookshelf for a cozy evening inside. Learn about beer history in the downstairs bathroom; the walls are pages from the Comic Book of Beer.
Step out of your shower in either of the two full bathrooms onto heated tile floors. The downstairs bath doubles as a laundry center with stacked washer-dryer and built-in ironing board.
Include your friends in your stay - the Brewmaster’s Cottage sleeps four adults. Leave your laptop on the desk and fold out the hidden Murphy-desk queen bed downstairs. The entire second floor is a spacious king-bed master suite with walk-in closet and double sink bath with tub/shower. Set the bedroom mood by dimming the lights on the gorgeous beer and barrel photo-canvas. In the morning, enjoy your coffee while rocking in the rustic snowshoe chairs on the sunrise view deck off the master bedroom.
The Brewmaster’s Cottage is a Portland beer destination on its own and is the place to stay when exploring Portland’s frequent beer festivals and beer events. All are only a bike, bus or taxi ride away. Ride the paved Peninsula Crossing Trail a half block away on the two provided bicycles. Fancy a walk instead? You’re just over a mile from Portland’s most scenic bridge with great views of downtown Portland, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams and Mt. Saint Helens. Prefer a hike? Cross the bridge and stride onto Ridge Trail, one of 22 gateways into Forest Park, the largest urban wilderness inside city limits. About 20 feet up the trail, remember to turn around for the best photographic view of the St. Johns Bridge.

Super clean, efficient, and comfortable place to stay. Form + function! Had a great time reading the books, and the mattresses were very comfortable. So happy we stayed here- will definitely be back! We were visiting UP where my daughter may attend, and the location was perfect for our needs. However, we all agreed we would much rather stay here again than downtown, even if we weren’t in town to visit UP. Easy check in/out and great privacy despite being adjacent to owner’s main residence.

Quiet, convenient and easy access to highway.
William G.Jul 2019
This was a very nice place. Clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. On the first morning, we were surprised to be awakened by a chicken crowing from the next-door neighbors. But after we figured out what is was, it was fine.
Matt V.Jul 2019
This is simply one of the best short term rentals you will find in Portland. The owner's attention to detail was astounding. As always, Vacasa's guest service team went above and beyond to make the trip wonderful.
Chris S.Jul 2019
The cleanliness, labels, location just an over all great place.
Suzanne L.Jul 2019
The decor was charming; kitchen is well equipped with nice appliances; very clean and newly updated. A delightful place to stay. Amazing how a smaller space is so well utilized yet felt very roomy.

Shane M.Feb 2019
We absolutely loved our stay! The master suite is amazing and heated floors in the bathrooms...wow! The location was great, a quick drive to UP, St John’s, and Jantzen Beach.
Jill S.Jan 2019
Something interesting to look at everywhere. This super clean, fun, well-designed vacation rental is located near St. Johns, a fun neighborhood in Portland. The parking spot & location were what sold us. Very comfortable bed (we didn't need/use the murphy bed in the living room). Spices and condiments in the kitchen. The bedroom is upstairs, with a full bathroom. Downstairs is the living room, kitchen, & another bathroom. Owners were helpful when we had trouble figuring out the heat. Highly recommend--this would make a great long-term vacation rental.
Steve H.Jan 2019

Wendy H.Nov 2018
The cottage has everything you could need and is as far from a room in someone's basement as you can get! Two floors, two bathrooms!! Beautiful finishes. Quiet and surrounded by fences downstairs which makes a private world. There is a fully equipped kitchen, laundry, books, games... really, a fully equipped everything!

James M.Sep 2018
Teri and Jon did a phenomenal job building a Brewer's paradise. The level of detail and craftsmanshipment is unmatched. My wife and I couldn't have felt more comfortable anywhere else. The space was immaculate. We look forward to coming back as soon as we can!
Darin M.Aug 2018
We have stayed at this home twice in the last year because of its close proximity to University of Portland where our children are attend college. The home has a nice master with on suite bathroom on the second floor.
Michel R.Aug 2018
Brewmaster's Cottage felt like home as soon as we walked in. We had everything we needed to live comfortably for our five night stay.
Christopher G.Aug 2018
Fantastic house. Easy access to downtown and great location to explore the N. Portland neighborhoods which continue to evolve. House itself is very well thought out and provides all the amenities you need (and more) in a smaller space. Would book again in a heartbeat.
Jeffrey F.Aug 2018
Cottage was awesome, they thought of everything. Owners are tremendously helpful with attractions to see and it was such a fun stay. 1.5 hours from the coast and 20 minutes to the airport. Next time we go to Portland, we are staying here again!!
Herb D.Jul 2018
Incredibly clean, comfortable and creative. The beautiful beer inspired design encouraged us to try the finest craft beers Portland has to offer. We will definitely stay again.
Bonnie J B.Jul 2018

Lori Z.Jun 2018
We love the Brewmasters Cottage! This was our second stay in 6 months. The accommodations were excellent!
Joe R.Jun 2018
Everything you need for a pleasant, comfortable stay is provided.
Peter W.Jun 2018
We were really impressed with how everything was so well thought out. Everything was labeled so we know where things are and how to operate. From a king size bed, heated flooring in the bathrooms, air conditioning, the master’s brewhouse was very comfortable. We had total privacy during our stay and Checkin was easy. Quiet and safe location, would take us 10-20mins drive to places we want to go around the city. We would definitely stay there again.
Clark R.May 2018
After the first day there, it became a game trying to find something they didn't think of. No cable TV, just what you can find on Internet. The owner explained the cost difference in Portland and it made sense. The best Value in Portland!
MAURO B.Apr 2018
Very clean place, well maintained, fun decor and good location.
It feels like home.
Thomas B.Apr 2018
Seldom do we find a place that is this well thought out! We loved it! We will stay again as our son and family live blocks away. It's the best place in North Portland I have found. The owners have thought of everything you would need for a stay away from home including bikes and helmets and even dental floss! The woodworking and artistic touches are tasteful and very well done! . You do not have to love beer to appreciate it but if you do, it is perfect! Very Clean and well maintained!
Devin H.Feb 2018
Loved this little place. Clean, bright, comfy, and perfect for myself and two kids to stay while I was visiting from Alaska. Would highly recommend this and will probably stay here again.
Richard S.Dec 2017
Fun and very well designed accomodation, everything you need for a home away from home. Can’t wait to comeback again.
William E G.Nov 2017
I really loved this place, being a beer geek and all. But even non-beer geeks will like this place ... it's clean, it's neat, it's very nicely constructed, it has great amenities, and all of the little (very) helpful stickies manage to be cute rather than hectoring. Our only regret was not having more time to relax and enjoy it a bit more. Definitely a gold medal winner.
Devin H.Nov 2017
Loved staying here, very clean, bright and loved the little brewers touches throughout. My kids and I enjoyed the books and games on site and will more than likely try to reserve this the next time I come to Portland! :)
Drew W.Nov 2017
Even better than the pics; a rarity. Every nook and cranny was spotless. There were hilariously detailed and numerous instruction labels everywhere, so no guesswork. Full bathrooms upstairs and down were a luxury. The bed upstairs is super comfortable and firm. The bikes provided were a welcome mode of transportation. Definitely be back.
Serena M.Nov 2017
We had a lovely weekend at the Brewmaster Cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. King bed and bedding was great. Water temperature and pressure was wonderful. Tiny kitchen had everything needed for simple cooking. Especially if you love beer, the decor was artistic and creative.
Melanie R.Oct 2017
Patty R.Oct 2017
Very cute cottage, centrally located. Clean, welcoming. Would stay again.
Angel P.Sep 2017
The Brewmaster's Cottage was perfect! This little place was the home away from home for us. The little kitchen and refrigerator allowed us to cook in and have a nice dinner and breakfast. The bathrooms were clean and lovely. The king size bed was a novelty. The cottage is tucked back behind the owner's house and garage and gave the perfect illusion of privacy. We wished we could have stayed longer!
Ean F.Jun 2017
This place is a must see and do for anyone visiting Portland and especially anyone who is there to visit breweries. Everything is beer themed, from the hop lights, art work on the walls, book shelf, glasses in abundance, stained glass artwork,bedroom pillows, and even yes - octoberfest rubber duckies in the tub. So cool.
In addition, its a great little place to stay. It easily sleeps 4, has 2 separate bathrooms, bicycles, a kitchen, washer/dryer, refrigerator, stores with-in a short 5 minute drive, and all the conveniences you'ld need to stay for a night or a week.
I asked if it was for sale..but they wouldn't sell. I'll be back for sure.
