Mulberry House

Slater House for a relaxing and calming stay in the heart of Portland.

"Ready for some peace and quiet as you attend a workshop or family events?
Excited to visit Portland and want to stay in a central location?
Do you want a retreat to plan what's next? "

We welcome you to stay with us in our home in inner Southeast Portland with Clarence and Esmeralda the goldfish.

What makes us unique: Our home was built in 1910 by George Slater, and is registered as a Historic Four Square Craftsman home. We are in Ladd's Addition which is Portland's own Bermuda Triangle. In Ladd's there is a different energy in part due to the layout of the rose gardens; and also due to the walkers, runners, and bicycle route which is very active most times of the day.

If you want to avoid renting a car to get around Portland you can stay here as we have quick access to various forms of transportation. The neighborhood is perfect for walking, riding bikes, and exploring (even on rainy days). It is an easy 35 minute walk to downtown, 15 minute bike ride, 15 minute bus ride (many nearby stops) or ten minute drive.

If you want solitude and little or no interaction that is just fine; do let us know how we can make your stay pleasurable.

We are smoke-free, pet-free (There is Banjo the roving black cat next door who enjoys the back porch), television-free and gluten-free (we have gluten bread and other goodies available for guests that enjoy it). We enjoy organic food, but are not vegan or vegetarian.

How I can work with you: If you want us to plan out a retreat; and be your personal guide that is available at an let us know and we can work that out. If you are interested in one on one Coaching, SoulCollage facilitation, Laughter Yoga or Reiki you will receive a 25% discount on these services while you are here.
