HISTORIC GUEST HOUSE LOCATED IN INNER CITY

Portland House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Welcome to my house, a classic Portland guest home located in the central city. Built in 1904 and maintains all historic charm but with the amenities of a modern home. Perfect for visitors who want the convenience and close proximity to all Portland has to offer with the quaintness of one of Portland’s oldest historic neighborhoods.

Built on the old streetcar network, you will enjoy walking to four amazing commercial districts with no fewer than 10 others within a 10 min bike or car ride. Amazing food, sights, shopping and nightlife will be at your doorsteps.

The kitchen is large and classic with subway tile wainscoting, beautiful fixtures and a classic 1941 O’Keefe & Merritt stove reminds you that food is not just sustenance but something to be enjoyed. Completely stocked with all the items needed to prepare your meal de jour. Modern feature like a dishwasher and microwave also provided for real life demands.

There are two bathrooms. On the main floor, experience the life of the modern Turkish bath house. Toilet, sink and large double showers may have you singing for hours. Upstairs is a toilet, sink and a large claw foot tub where you can soak and reflect on the days adventures had or to come.

Formal dining room, living room and tv room will make you feel right at home.

There are 5 rooms. One is decorated with 1880’s furnishings with a full size bed with a view of the downtown skyline. The second has a 1900’s style sleigh bed décor with queen size bed. The third is also decorated in early 1900's decor and has a full size bed. The fourth is an amazing room with three walls of windows and a queen size bed with queen sized sleeper sofa. This room is the largest. The last room is a smaller room on the main floor with Midcentury modern decore and a full size bed.

Summers can be enjoyed on the full size front porch, enjoying the Mediterranean garden and people watching or in the backyard, Asian influenced garden. Bikes are also available for guests.

While this home has successfully hosted musicians, reunions, wedding parties and guys/girls weekends, it is located in a neighborhood. If your group is going to rage or you feel unable to control the behavior of people in your party, this is not the house for you. I have a 10PM quiet time agreement with my neighbors and it is strictly enforced. Violators will be asked to leave without refund.

I have a love of this city and all things that make it special. I’m also a former concierge for a hotel here in Portland and love to give suggestions and recommendations on shopping, dining and activities in and out of the city. I have a love of travel, food, books and people.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

This house is in located in the central city with so many neighborhoods in walking/biking distance. Free transit made it easy living here without a car. The house is in a historic neighborhood and is very charming.

Excellent, memorable and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5
This house is fantastic! We came to Portland for the first time to see my niece graduate from PSU with her Phd. We had to rely on pictures and communique with Will, the owner, to determine if this place was our best option to accommodate our large family (ranging from age 4 to age 74), every room was full! The pictures posted enabled us to plan accordingly and the correspondence with Will (I sent many emails with many questions) enabled us to determine we were right where we needed to be. Will was accommodating, helpful and kind. The house was beautiful, charming, had everything we needed and then some! The house was very clean, the beds were comfortable, linens were plentiful, kitchen was stocked, coffee houses, restaurants, transportation all nearby and within walking distance! Something we are not used to in Phoenix! We enjoyed sitting on the patio for hours as well as gathering in the lush backyard and watching the kids play. In short, it was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, in fact we took family portraits on the front steps with the beautiful historic house as our background. Our stay was perfect from start to finish. We are hoping for another opportunity or reason to come back and stay here in the near future!

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5
I stayed with a group of 7 and there was plenty of room for all of us. The house is a beautiful 1900s built home. The colorful paint made it easy to identify! The house was minutes to downtown and some great coffee and restaurants a few streets north. We would stay here again.

Great place to stay while attending conference in Portland!

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have had a better time in Portland! The house was very comfortable and spacious for 6-8 people.The downstairs shower was amazing! It had great water pressure and lots of hot water even after repeated use. We all loved the architectural style and decor of the house. The location was convenient for people going to the Portland Convention Center as well as to downtown. It was a pleasant walk through neighborhoods and some city streets to the conference center and fairly easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, cafes, and of course the mall! Interacting with the landlord was easy and straightforward--he explained all necessary details in an informal yet quick manner and we definitely appreciated how flexible he was regarding our exact arrival time. We thought the house was well kept, which is not trivial for a house of that vintage. We also really appreciated having a fully functioning kitchen, that alone saved us a lot of money on this trip..and I bet no one else at our conference got to go home and make choco-chip cookies from scratch! We would totally recommend this place to ANYONE visiting Portland for business, pleasure, or whatevs!

Great for Bachelor Party

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place for a Seattle-based crew to have a bachelor party. Just a few minutes from DT, everyone was happy with the location. We also had 16 guys and everyone slept comfortably.
