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.

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.

Great time over the Xmas holidays in Portland

My family and I spent the Xmas holidays in Portland at Will's fantastic house in Irvington. We were there for a week, and really enjoyed our stay. The house is very comfortable and much larger than we thought it would be from looking at the pictures. The kitchen has all the needed amenities, and is beautifully designed and decorated.

The house is walking distance to all public transportation, and during our stay we did not need a car. The house is also very close to Lloyd's Center, where we went shopping and ice skating during our stay. We also walked to the Rose Garden and Coliseum to watch a Blazers and Winterhawks game. Everything is either a short walk, or light rail trip away.

I highly recommend staying in this house, and there is a very good chance that we will stay there again in the near future.

What happens when five colleagues from various cities in North America meet in Portland for the first time? They stop being polite and start agreeing the Multnomah house, and Portland, are awesome.
The house was perfect for us. Beautiful common space, sizable private rooms and large kitchen. Great value and super responsive owner.
33% of those who stayed have decided to move to Portland. For realz.

A big thank you to Will for giving us this opportunity to stay in his gorgeous house. We all felt so at home. So spacious with very beautiful decor. What a treat! It is in such a great location too. It was truly the perfect place where my family and friends could all spend time together. I would not hesitate to come back.

My sisters arrived from around the US just before I did and were all relaxing on the comfy large sofa in the living room when I arrived. They were thrilled with my choice of house!! I continued to get lots of kudos throughout our stay there, but here are some for Will, the owner, who has created and maintains a perfect place for a large family gathering (there were 11 of us staying there and several others who hung out there from time to time). The house was everything and more that the photos promised. The location is very convenient for walking and driving to nearby shops. The teenagers loved being able to walk on their own for coffee and snacks and even went down to the skating rink at the nearby shopping mall.
Will was very welcoming. We have lived in Portland before, so didn't need much info, but he made sure we knew he was available if needed.
The kitchen worked well for a large group. Everyone especially loved the beautiful downstairs shower.
I would highly recommend this house for a family gathering like ours or for several couples.
Nearby places we liked are Costello's Travel Cafe for coffee and small meals, the wine store on NE Broadway, Lloyd Center Mall skating rink. It is a bit of trek, but you can walk to downtown Portland from the house the Steel Bridge and the Esplanade.
