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 high-speed WiFi internet, and flat screen HD TV with premium cable -- 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.

A cozy stay in a great neighborhood

  • 4 of 5
I want to preface this review with a big thanks to Susan for being so accommodating to our ever changing schedule. My sister and two cousins had flown in from the East Coast for an Oregon Coast drive. We had spent a few days in Astoria and when I spoke with Susan to give an estimated arrival time in Portland, I greatly overestimated our roll out and drive time. I called her the next day to say we'd be arriving about 3 hours earlier than my previous guess. Despite recovering from knee surgery, Susan was finishing her final flat preparations when we rolled into the neighborhood. The place was immaculate and there were sparkling white wine, fresh baked cookies and a gift certificate to a local restaurant waiting for us.Thanks for the wonderful welcome!

Sellwood one of many terrific Portland neighborhoods, with local al fresco dining, coffee shops aplenty and a great natural foods grocery store just a few blocks away from our flat.

The Lexie House was cozy...small but comfy living room with a futon, double bedroom with a small single just behind. The kitchen is small but clean and well stocked with an adjacent pantry/laundry room. The bathroom is roomy, clean and also well stocked with clean linens, shampoo, hair dryer and first aid supplies, should you need them. The back deck has a grill and patio furniture. We had a very comfortable stay and had everything we needed for meals, morning coffee and evening relaxation. Staying at Lexie House was a lovely part of our Portland visit.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is in a fantastic location. You can walk to great restaurants and shopping. The cottage is very comfortable with great beds and a nice kitchen if you want to cook. The owner was very helpful and communicated with us needed. We will be returning to this spot on our next visit to Portland.

Lovely little house, perfect neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.
