About Diane Rowley

Charley & Diane have been married 42 years and moved from Montana to Portland 29 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 Apartment 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 an historic established neighborhood, 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 $3 and have a pizza & beer. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby.

Beautiful, cozy, and accessible.

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying in the Garden apartment. I didn't realize we would be on top of a mountain but waking up to all of the green was refreshing since we were visiting from Arizona. Charley was kind and shared his knowledge of the area as well as the newspaper so we could find some great places to eat. Recommended to anyone who wants to be outside if the city. A real nice neighborhood.

Excellent rental in perfect part of town

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the garden apartment! It had everything you could want and more! The bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom was equipped with all you could need. There was even cable and Netflix to relax with in the evenings after a long day of sightseeing.. It was a perfect spot to visit Portland! It seems like wherever we wanted to sight see, it was only about 15 minutes away by car. Would highly recommend this place!

Clean, well-organized, thoughtful, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Diane and Charley maintain a guest space that is immaculate, accessible, comfortable, and well-thought-out. We really enjoyed the garden, the heated bathroom floors, the cozy bed, and the well-stocked kitchen. We had a very peaceful stay, and wish we could have stayed longer!

Wonderful garden apartment in Mt Tabor neighborhood of Portland OR

  • 5 of 5

We were taking my 88 year old mother on a visit to Portland, where she grew up, for a last visit to remaining friends, family, and the neighborhood she grew up in. We were looking for a place to stay in the Mt. Tabor area, one that did not require walking up stairs to get to. We were delighted to find this rental, which was so much more than just an accessible place to sleep. It is exquisitely well decorated and maintained, in a peaceful garden setting. There is even a hot tub available in the garden. There are sky lights for extra light, and it was a wonderful surprise for us Californians to wake up and see rain falling on the sky lights. The neighborhood is conveniently located for access to Mt Tabor Park and Laurelhurst Park, and is walking distance to a good grocery store and a bus stop on Burnside for convenient transit to downtown. It is a very walkable area, with wonderful well maintained homes and gardens. I would definitely recommend this rental.

Very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

Diane had the place very well stocked with just about anything you needed. Her granola was delicious too. The apartment is in a great location for sightseeing and great restaurants. Unfortunately we couldn't see everything on our itinerary because of the fires, so we will have to come back.
