About Diane Rowley

Charley & Diane have been married 45 years and moved from Montana to Portland 32 years ago where they have raised their 3 children. They enjoy welcoming guests from all over the world in the private apartment behind their home, overlooking the garden.

Diane Rowley purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Diane Rowley chose Mount Tabor

The Garden Cottage is a comfortable, clean, light-filled, refuge with a peaceful garden view..... a great place to hang out or come back to after a day of exploring the Portland area, or visiting family. It has everything you need....a home away from home.

What makes this apartment unique

This location is in a quiet, historic, established neighborhood, and has excellent access to the many amenities of Portland and its surroundings. It is a beautiful short walk to the historic Mt. Tabor Park and easy access to anywhere in the city or hikes in the Colombia Gorge. Only two blocks to the neighborhood coffee shop and restaurant and a few more to the neighborhood theater where you can see a movie for $4 and have a pizza & beer. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby along with city bus stops and MAX light rail access within easy walking distance.

Serene setting

  • 5 of 5

The property and living quarters were lovely and so convenient to all our activities. The owners anticipated any and all needs as well as very clear and helpful instructions. I highly recommend this property!

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

If the Rowley's garden apartment is any indication, we will never stay in a hotel again. This 1-bedroom apartment was perfect for us. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet. A little path takes you from the street through a meticulously-cared for and inviting garden, to the apartment behind the main house. Large windows and sliding doors make you feel connected to the outdoors, but is so private we kept drapes open. All the linens, appliances and furnishings are in great shape, and the whole place has a fresh, warm feel. There were 2 gliding chairs and a recliner, so comfortable! Excellent lighting, well-stocked kitchen, plenty of room to unpack and stretch out. Heating and cooling very efficient and quiet. It is close to Tabor Park, which has some great walking trails. The media system looked great, although we did not use. There are books and board games in case of inclement weather. Our only complaint was the low shower water pressure, which was adequate for me; but if you have body hair, rinsing off is tedious. Nonetheless, we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Comfortable, quiet and great location.

  • 5 of 5

What more would you want? Stayed six nights and couldn't have been happier. Large fully equipped kitchen, living room and bedroom with walk in closet. Serene garden. Close to shops and restaurants but far enough away to avoid the crowds and noise. Plenty of parking. On the slopes of Mt Tabor which has a large beautiful park. Great communication with the owner. We will definitely stay here on our next visit. Thanks Diane!
