Grace House was our first home after moving to Portland from Texas. We stayed a month with our two-and-a-half-year-old daughter. We fell in love with Sellwood and ended up renting a home nearby for the long-term. We can't say enough about the park - it was like having a huge backyard (and Grace House has lovely and well-kept outdoor space itself). You can walk to almost everything you need. The house is small and cozy, and it was clean and well-stocked with toys and books when we arrived. The owner, Susan, is wonderfully hospitable, and we are glad to remain neighbors!
To all vacation house hunters we used the internet to find a vacation home for several days. Included in our search was a place to return to each year and enjoy the different , cultures. However, this place is a dump, spider infested, dirty, black mold in this 100 year plus house, 1/2 truths were given regarding the house, not to mention, the large nut tree that sheds where you have to park your vehicle (in the street). Needless to say, your vehicle gets pelted.
This place is old and filthy. The door to the basement is a accordion type vinyl door not a normal door for safety and black mold on basement walls. The main and only bedroom has no door for privacy, the house has one bathroom in order to reach the bathroom you have to pass thru the main bedroom and there is no door on the bathroom except for another accordion door. This place is awful don't get suckered into renting it because of the other reviews. They are not correct in describing this terrible place. This place is a dump.
This little cottage is in a wonderful location - charming historic Sellwood, and within walking distance of a lovely park and walking trails, restaurants, shopping, bus stops, etc. But for so many urban amenities, the neighborhood is so peaceful and quiet and safe! It's like an urban oasis! The owners live right next door and are very responsive to any needs that might arise, yet are very unobtrusive as well. The cottage is small but functional, and the fenced in back and front yards provide additional space to enjoy. We enjoyed our time here and would rent this cottage again if we ever have the opportunity to come back to Portland. The fact that the owners accept dogs is wonderful - our little dog enjoyed her stay here as well!
My wife, our two corgis, and I, new to Portland, stayed here for a month while we looked for a house with a full year lease. I wish we hadn't had to leave when our month was up.
The cottage is charming and the beautiful wrap-around yard was perfect for our Corgis.
A short walk away are shops, restaurants, coffee shops, a Columbia sportswear outlet, and a New Seasons grocery. Susan, Grace House's owner, gave us a gift certificate to Jade, her favorite restaurant, and the food there was delicious.
Sellwood is beautiful. Old trees overhang and line the streets. Mostly modest houses with lots of flowers out front display the neighbors' joy and pride. Sellwood Park is a block from Grace House; you can catch a baseball game, play frisbee, admire the tulips or flowering trees, or hike down to Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge to look for eagles. If you're lucky, the Rose City Rollers will roller-derbying, just a short walk farther in the hangar at Oaks Park amusement park.
Susan is friendly and helpful. She lives next door, but don't worry, she's no nosy snoop. :-)
I recommend Grace House without reservation and wholeheartedly. If it was for sale and we could afford it, we'd buy it in a minute.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Grace House in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland. Our hosts surprised us with a lovely bottle of wine and a gift certificate to a wonderful local restaurant. The owners live next door and were very welcoming. They provided us with a wealth of information on events and locations in the Portland area. The kitchen is well equipped and linens are provided. There is a lovely park a block from the house and restaurants, pubs, bakeries, antique malls, and shopping are within easy walking distance. The yard is fenced and has a lovely backyard garden area. We stayed for a month and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Portland. We look forward to returning to Grace House.
My husband, two young boys, and I really enjoyed our month-long stay at Grace House. The house is very cozy, the yard is beautifully maintained, and just a half block away is the gorgeous Sellwood Park. Susan, the owner, was kind and accessible. When we arrived there was a giant bucket of legos waiting for our boys, and a nice bottle of wine waiting for the adults. (Plus a gift certificate to a yummy restaurant nearby.) I think the house is a little tight for a family of four (especially one with two rambunctious boys); that said, we enjoyed our time living in a smaller space than we are used to, and would definitely rent here again. It was also so pleasant to be able to stroll into Sellwood for dinner, gelato, or a cup of tea. Overall, it was a great experience, and we hope to be back again soon!
Once its own town, Historic Sellwood is a bustling, vibrant neighborhood in Southeast Portland, minutes away from downtown. Home of 'Antique Row,' it boasts a wide variety of ethnic restaurants and unique shops, along with a popular public park with seasonal pool, well-equipped playground and easy access to the Springwater Bike Trail, Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, and Oaks Park, America's longest continually-running amusement park.
