“The tiny home movement has become increasingly popular,” explains Norling. “We wanted to create an experience that would give visitors a front row seat to the possibilities of tiny home living and affordable access to some of Portland’s best places to eat, drink, shop and explore.
PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) February 11, 2019
Slabtown Village guests can expect the grandeur of a traditional hotel stay while still having a truly alternative, Portland experience. The hotel, which is a mixture of newly constructed tiny homes and recently restored Victorian houses, is located just a few blocks from Portland’s iconic Pearl District and urban Northwest 23rd Avenue.
After four years of watching nearby historic buildings get replaced with new high-density projects, property owners Grant Norling and John Jendritza resisted the pressure to do the same. Instead of tearing down their beautiful Victorian homes built in 1875, they went a different route. Seeking to embrace growth while preserving the neighborhood’s rich history, they renovated the three existing homes and built three new tiny ones around them, curating a collection of tiny houses, new and old. Each tiny home is named after a local Northwest Portland icon including Portland Trail Blazers legend Bill Walton and former Portland mayor Vera Katz.
Whether travelers are looking for an out-of-town getaway or a Portland staycation, the hotel’s six tiny homes are stylish, affordable and environmentally responsible. Each unit is beautifully designed with high-quality furnishings and luxurious amenities including full bathrooms and kitchenettes, high-speed WiFi, flat screen televisions with complimentary Netflix, air conditioning and more.
Slabtown Village is offering visitors a winter rate on bookings now through the end of April.
