For an affordable stay in a quiet residential neighborhood, try the Bluebird Guesthouse. This 1910 Craftsman-style house offers seven charmingly decorated guestrooms (some with private bathrooms) named after authors such as Gabriel Garcia-Marquez, Beverly Cleary and Ken Kesey. A continental breakfast is available in the mornings -- or you can make your own meal in the full kitchen. While it's about a 15-minute drive from downtown Portland (you can get into town by public bus if you don't have a car), there are a number of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance.
