We have two nicely-decorated and newly-furnished private rooms on the second floor of our cozy house. The private 'Family Room' provides ample space for a couple and two children or a few friends, as it has a double sized bed and bunk beds inside. (Children under 16 years old are free and additional adults just pay $10 per night). The 'Bagby Room,' named after the local hot springs east of Portland, is the best choice for a couple traveling together, as it has one double sized bed and a beautiful private porch that overlooks Hawthorne Boulevard.
