I've lived in Portland for a few decades and love the inner Southeast Hawthorne area neighborhoods. I love the cafes in the neighborhood. Outdoor fun is nearby too. Kayak rentals and the river are about a 20 minute bike ride from the house. Come to Portland for Pedalpalooza, in June. Or Sunday Parkways in Southeast, a huge community ride/walk in our neighborhood, usually in August. In February it's the Portland Jazz Festival, a couple of weeks of multiple fine jazz events every day. And the house is a 10 or 15 minute bus ride to the venue. The bus is one block from the house. Oh and the Blues Festival runs for several days around July 4th, on the waterfront.
Owner- Laurie purchased this house in 2004
I fell in love with this home because of the natural woodwork, wood floors, nice light, and vintage character. I already knew and loved the Buckman neighborhood and the Hawthorne area.
People walk in this neighborhood. They walk by with their dogs and even some with their cats. If you like pets you'll get to meet them. 5 minute drive or 10 minute bus ride to downtown. Very bike friendly.
What a great place to stay! The house was just like it was described in the listing. It was very comfortable and clean, felt like home. I really liked that we arrived in Portland earlier then we had expected and the house was ready for us, ( no 3 or 4 check in time like at hotels). The neighborhood was great. Easy to find parking on the street. Between Hawthorne and Belmont there is a large variety of cafes, shopping and grocery stores. All within walking distance. We rarely used our car, which we loved. Cafe Central Bakery was great for breakfast and bread! 3 Doors down was excellent for Italian food. Pizza and salad at Blackbird was also very good.
The owner was so easy to work with, from the initial inquiry to check out. Her response time was great and she provided additional information about restaurants in the area.
I would definitely stay here again and I would highly recommend it to my friends and family!
This home was comfort plus; wonderful neighborhood if one wants great food and bakery's within walking distance. Immaculately clean with great beds. I liked being able to go for a good walk in the morning in the neighborhood. We were looking for a home base for our annual visit to the grandchild and family and found it.
My daughter and I recently stayed in Portland for about a week visiting another daughter who lives there. We stayed at Laurie's very sweet duplex just off of Hawthorn Street where we walked to the bakery, the corner cafe and just through the neighborhood enjoying all the fragrant blooming flowers.
It was such a treat to be in the heart of it all, yet tucked away quietly!
Laurie was a pleasure to work with! Very kind and accommodating! The house was perfect, in every way!
I would stay there again in a heartbeat!!!
My girlfriend and I (and my dog) stayed here for a few days during a brief visit to Portland. We found everything to be just as described. The owner was very responsive and nice and easy to work with. The bed was super comfortable and it is within easy walking distance of some of the best places Portland has to offer in my opinion. The fact that I could stay here with my dog was a major bonus. We will definitely consider this place again the next time we need a fun, affordable, and walkable place to stay in Portland...
My sisters and I rented this place for the Portland Marathon. The location was simply perfect, the host gracious and the property lovely. We were able to relax together in the spacious living room and cook together in the sunny kitchen. We were able to walk to the great restaurants in the neighborhood and enjoy being in Portland. We liked it so much that we are planning to return for the 2016 Portland Marathon!
The house was ideal for the four of us over Christmas & New Year. Warm & welcoming with a good sized living room & dining area with a fireplace and comfortable beds in the 2 bedrooms. The washer & drier in the basement was very handy whilst the kitchen which met our needs to cook some great meals over Christmas and the on-stove kettle was a bonus (which may give a clue as to where I'm based). Communication with Laurie before and during our stay was excellent.
We didn't have a car, and managed really well with Trimet buses and trams (bus drivers were always patient and helpful when we were lost), or Uber when we were feeling lazy. The house is situated in a lovely area of Portland, which was a good contrast from downtown Portland. There was a local supermarket and a diversity of shops within walking distance, and more stores a longer walk away on Division including the ice creams available at Salt & Straw and produce at the New Season's market.
Overall we had a lovely stay here and would stay again in the future.
Located a block off SE Hawthorne in the Hawthorne Cafe District in Inner Southeast Portland, and 5 blocks from the Belmont cafe district. About equal distance from the Washington Park Rose Gardens and Japanese Garden on the west side and the huge Mt. Tabor Park on the east side.
5 minutes to downtown. Located a block from one bus line and 5 blocks from another. 2 blocks to the popular Salmon Street bike way.
Near Grand Central Bakery, Jam on Hawthorne, Cinemagic, and much more. Progressive, sustainably oriented neighborhood of vintage homes.
