Meet Your Hosts!


You will receive a warm welcome from Sarah, a longtime Portlander and owner of the Woodlawn Guest House. Sarah is a local guide who knows a lot about Portland and it’s 96 neighborhoods, top sightseeing spots (and tourist traps to avoid), and where to find just about anything : street murals? food carts? uncrowded hiking trails? If you’ve got a special request just let Sarah know and she will do her best to make it happen and ensure that your visit to Portland is everything you want it to be. Walter is our beloved  mascot, a german wirehair dog who will steal your heart and give you a good reason to bring home a doggie bag.
