LEXIE HOUSE -- A COZY VICTORIAN COTTAGE IN PORTLAND'S SELLWOOD NEIGHBORHOOD!

Portland House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + double futon, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3-5)

Lexie House is a cozy, comfortable, restored 1905 cottage tucked right into the middle of Portland's most coveted historic neighborhood.

Your friendly hosts live nearby, and are available to assist you or just leave you alone to enjoy your stay.

Antique and vintage furnishings, along with original fir floors and many wavy-glass windows, add to the cottage charm. But 'mod-cons' -- including cable Internet access -- abound. Ten-foot high ceilings, with an open floor plan and lots of light.

In the master bedroom, there's a late-1800’s brass double bed, with a Tempur-pedic mattress. The smaller bedroom also boasts an antique brass bed, a single.

The spacious open living area offers a comfortable double futon, adjustable Morris chair, good reading lights, desk with high-speed Internet access, and TV with premium cable.

In the bathroom, there's a shower, tub -- and rubber duckies galore! Highchair, crib, playpen, changing table and stroller are available, as are roll-a-way and inflatable beds for your own visitors.

The fully equipped kitchen has a modern gas range and stainless steel fridge, dishwasher, microwave, cookware, dishes, herbs and spices, and (of course!) that Pacific NW essential: an espresso machine!

The utility room off the kitchen has a washer and dryer. The kitchen opens into a tranquil deck area, with two tables, chairs, a barbecue -- and the surrounding bamboo garden creating maximum privacy.

Sellwood Park, with its seasonal public pool and wonderfully equipped playground, is three long blocks away. Westmoreland Park -- playground and all -- is three blocks in the other direction.

The public library is on the next block. Funky or elegant restaurants, grocery stores, two Starbucks, and Sellwood's justly-famed Antique Row are all a stroll away. A four-block walk takes you to the New Seasons natural foods market.

Explore Oaks Bottom, renowned wildlife preserve -- or Oaks Park, America's oldest continually running amusement park!

Take the bus to Portland's downtown and east side shopping districts. Reed College, Lewis & Clark College and Law School, Oregon Health Sciences Universities and Portland State are all a ten-minute drive away.

Lovely little house, perfect neighborhood!

We stayed here for several weeks in August, and it was lovely. The house itself is darling. It's also super kid friendly--when Susan heard we'd be bringing our two children, she brought over a huge bin of legos that kept them entertained for days. Our kids loved the tiny back bedroom too. Overall, the house feels very homey, and the kitchen is fully equipped. There is a little patio in back where you can eat on nice days. Susan was a great hostess and was there to answer our dumb questions (like how to work the cable). And when we forgot a few things, like we always do, she graciously volunteered to mail them to us.

The house is also in the perfect location in the perfect Portland neighborhood. You can walk to the park, to the local pool, to get a sandwich at Grand Central, to rent a game at Cloud Cap Games, to get groceries at New Seasons... and the list goes on and on. The library across the street even gives out temporary cards if you want to borrow a book! Could not have been happier with our stay.

Nice Christmas cottage

Lexie House was a great home away from home while we visited kids and grandkids in Portland. Susan and Sam were gracious hosts who went out of their way to make it feel more like Christmas by putting up a tree for us so that we could put the grandkids' presents under the tree. They also went above and beyond by providing extra table and chairs so that we could host a family Christmas dinner. We all had a lovely time and are so grateful that we found Susan and Sam and Lexie House. What a great place.

Great place for staying in a lively neighborhood

We found the little house fully equipped with everything you need, well maintained and spotlessly clean. The owner gave us a warm welcome, check-in and check-out were easy and uncomplicated, so were the arrangements before and after our stay (communication, confirmation, payment, refund of deposit, etc.) Giving us many options to contact her made sure our stay was always comfortable.
The property is situated in a quiet side street, in easy walking distance from shops and restaurants. Easy access to buses to downtown, centrally located as well for trips by car, parking available on the street.
We would definitely want to come back and can recommend this property to anyone who wants to spend some nice days in that neighborhood.

A Cozy Cottage Stay

  • Stayed: Jan 2013
This was my 3rd stay at Lexie...keep being drawn back there, because it is comfortable, safe, charming and complete....full bath, kitchen, laundry, comfortable beds, wireless internet, cable...have all of this plus a delightful community to explore with restaurants, shops, grocery store, parks and movie theater. I really like throwing a coat on when I wake up and walking across street with my mug for fresh coffee and pastry!!! Everything is convenient. In addition, it is an easy drive to downtown Portland, highways or the suburbs. To make visit completely wonderful, the friendly owners attend to detail and readily help you in any way possible.

Really now, Lexie House is the best spot to be in Portland!!
