Jody decided it was good idea to cook ceviche with the house closed up - the whole place smelled awful for days. The bathrooms were filthy, the shower didn't work, bedroom door lock not even close to safe and there is no parking at the street.

Great hostess, great location, great breakfast and great value! Jody is the star of the show, giving her guests just the right amount of attention and hospitality. As a bed & breakfast owner for 30 years, I can recommend this lodging to anyone traveling to Portland.

We stayed there 3 nights. The house was nice but the room was alright but the sofa and things in the room left us no space even to put our clothes. Jody made breakfast for us. The bathroom's door was not working--could not close but we used the hot tub downstairs instead. A convenient to stay and walk to the... More

We stayed at the Painted Lady Inn on our drive south from Vancouver, BC. We reserved the cottage, which was spacious, pleasantly appointed and affordable. It included shabby chic couches and a fully-stocked kitchen with a French press, which Jody, the proprietress, readied for us after checking us in. The cottage was within walking distance to several restaurants and a... More

The bed and breakfast was for one night and was enjoyable with a healthy breakfast served in the main dining area . Quiet and comfortable close to most amenities. I enjoyed this beautiful old Victorian style home decorated with antiques. The core theme were several authentic oil paintings of ladies which correlated to the name of the Inn.

We made confirmed reservations here over 6 months ago for the beginning of August and she cancelled our reservation mid May when she got a larger group to book. We are now stuck trying to find accommodations for four in the city of Portland with little time!

My apologies for canceling her reservation, but I did offer to help her book alternate at a lovely BnB just around the corner, but the only room that would accomodate their party of three. When I suggested alternate option/needs for accommodation she replied by threatening me by contacting a business attorney and informing me that, having done so, she expected... More

A friend and I booked a room for one night. Walking inside was like walking into a time machine - kind of a cool experience. The decor was very vintage and made the place feel very cozy.

My wife and I just spent a relaxing long weekend at the Painted Lady (Thursday through Monday) and loved the cottage in back that we stayed in. The cottage's kitchenette, sitting area, private bath, and King size bed were extremely roomy and well appointed - which made for a great stay. We were also very thankful for our morning sit...

“For larger groups The Cottage is ideal and the other rooms are ideal for couples being quite spacious as well as lavishly decorated. I found Jody was very helpful in discussing what would work best during my stay.”
  • The Suite again because the lighting was wonderful
  • The 'Suite'
  • The Cottage's kitchenette
  • The Cottage - wonderful restful space removed from the house
  • The 'Guest' room - angled ceiling adds to the room's charm
  • Another angle of the Suite
  • The front room was warm and peaceful for reading
