Workers used to take a ferry across the river to work in the city of Portland. Many helped build the seawall. Now, Eliot is one of the closest 'inner' neighborhoods in town. This great walking and biking neighborhood. (there is a bike rental shop 2 blocks away), and it is home to great restaurants and coffee shops & event venues. Blocks from freeway access and downtown.

skiing, snowboarding, hiking, water skiing, wind surfing, sail boarding, biking, & mountain biking.

Portland is surrounded by parks, and boasts the largest inner city park in the United States. Washington Park is just a 10 minute drive. Mt. Tabor is the only inner city volcano in the US, just a 15 minute drive.

Just 1-2 hours in any direction, and you'll find yourself at the coast, on the mountain or in the Columbia Gorge National scenic area. Visible mountains include Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens & Mt. Adams.

The place is older, but well maintained. The owners have everything you need for your stay -

quality cookware and dishes, dish soap, paper towels... they even had little things like coffee, coffee filters, and sugar - to make sure your first day starts right. The house is also very convenient to the highway - less than a mile from all major routes. Downtown does require a car or taking the bus. About the only negative I would add is that the house is near a busy street, so there is a lot of traffic noise at night when you are trying to get to sleep.

Lovely, charming, everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time! This lovely apartment, tastefully decorated with original art (!) was the perfect jumping-off point for our Oregon adventures. We found we did not need a car to get around the city; we mostly used the Portland Streetcar (a few blocks away on Broadway and Wiedler) and MAX lines to get around town. The neighborhood itself boasts several of Portland's best restaurants (OX is one) and a wonderful speak-easy-styled cocktail bar called Secret Society. Tiny's is a lovely local favorite for coffee or a cheap (but just fine) bite to eat on your way to catch a trolley.

The kitchen is well stocked with any utensils, pots and pans, etc, that you might need to do your own cooking. We did cook several breakfasts ourselves. The freezer has an ice machine. Coffee maker and coffee filters provided. There's even a spice pullout with an impressive selection of spices. Out back is a lovely garden with a deck and seating.

We found the window AC entirely sufficient for the July weather (it was in the lower 80s and clear the whole time, no complaints there either!) The traffic noise (as mentioned in other reviews) didn't bother us, maybe because we are used to city noise. The nearby businesses didn't create any noise that we noticed.

I think what made this place most memorable for us were the interesting works of art that decorated every room. It's not just generic hotel art; it's very interesting, original yet accessible. It was the perfect backdrop for our Portland stay and made us feel completely at home.

Cute home in a fun neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed the home and location. The neighborhood has some fun bars and restaurants and it's a cheap Uber ride to downtown Portland. The owner and property manager were extremely helpful when we needed anything.
