Lives up to the Hype!

My family and I were thrilled to be able to stay in this cute little house for a month while visiting family in Portland. Clean, cozy and well maintained, it was the perfect place for us to spend our summer vacation. It may be small, but it was decorated beautifully and was plenty big enough for my wife and I and our two kids. Our little boys loved playing in the fenced in backyard, while my wife and I loved the fully furnished kitchen and having drinks or BBQing on the deck. Just blocks away from the river, I didn't have any excuses to skip my morning run. With a great grocery store just several blocks away and the Corbett Fish House next door, I needed it too.

The one negative was that the driveway is long and narrow. Best not try to pull an SUV or bigger car in there unless you've got a good insurance company. There is usually plenty of parking on the street. Steve was a great host, full of tips but giving us our space. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect weekend

Steve & Michelle,
Your little "pink house" was the perfect long weekend place to stay for us. Our friends live just a mile or so away so was very convenient. The house was clean and charming. The coffee shop next door and the fish cafe next to that was great. We ate there late the first night, great fish tacos and the coffee house was great to just roll out of bed and have right there! Everything was as described and was very convenient to downtown. We would highly recommend to all, thanks again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! Our guests find the Corbett House a great place for a Portland experience that's very close to Downtown, but with a more comfortable, neighborhood-y feel. We hope you come back soon!

A great place to stay!

Corbett House is perfect place for a visit to Portland. It's location is ideal...close enough to downtown to take public transit, yet in a quiet, quaint neighborhood. It's the prefect size for a group or family (up to four people) with two full bedroom. The decor is friendly and welcoming and the kitchen has everything needed. The deck is just the right size, complete with bbq. A great place to stay and a great bargain!

Great Place to Stay

The Corbett House was the perfect place to stay while visiting family in the area. We really enjoyed the local restaurants within walking distance and the river walk just a block away. The property is very comfortable with all the amenities and set in a lovely quiet neighborhood. I would love to stay here in the future.

Cozy Cottage!

We had a wonderful stay at Corbett House. It was immaculately clean and well-stocked. Great back yard and deck for relaxing. The neighborhood around the cottage is a quiet residential neighborhood, but it has coffee shops (next door) and restaurants you can walk to. We found it very convenient to all the sites we wanted to see during our stay. This house is a very cozy place to relax rather than being packed into a hotel room. We will definitely stay there again if we return to Portland.
