Portland House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy this lovely & private 2BR, 1 BA 1925 Cottage; sleeps 4

Enjoy the comfort and privacy of this completely updated 1925 Portland bungalow, just south of city center. Not a condo, not an apartment/duplex/etc., this house awaits you in the established neighborhood of John's Landing. With a rating of 83, you'll be able to walk to many local neighborhood restaurants (there's a quiet cafe next door) or stroll along the river in Willamette Park. It's a 5 minute commute to city center, with easy access to mass transit.

This lovely home has tons of original charm, with refinished fir wood floors, a fireplace with built-ins, original paned glass and light fixtures, and two sets of french doors opening to a lovely back yard. A small deck overlooks a lush backyard bordered with birch trees, bamboo, and other plantings. This fully furnished home features a kitchen with a gas range, full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, automatic coffee maker, etc.--as well as all dishware and cookware. Guests also have use of the washer and dryer, and the gas grill and patio furniture on the back deck. The house is well stocked with all linens; even laundry soap is provided. The house features comfortable furnishings in the living room and bedrooms.

Queen bed in main bedroom. Full bed in second bedroom. Cable, local phone, wireless internet included. Parking is available in the driveway for smaller cars, and always on street.

We welcome your call or email!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great place to stay while in Portland! This has been our second stay, this time for almost 2 weeks, and we have been so comfortable here- the yard has been particularly lovely this time, with all the trees and plants sprouting and blooming for the spring!

Sanctuary in the city

I needed a place to stay while separated and this was the perfect spot. Great location, cute house, cozy and comforting. Super easy hop into downtown portland or for a walk by the river. And the cafe next door is amazing!

Lives up to the Hype!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were thrilled to be able to stay in this cute little house for a month while visiting family in Portland. Clean, cozy and well maintained, it was the perfect place for us to spend our summer vacation. It may be small, but it was decorated beautifully and was plenty big enough for my wife and I and our two kids. Our little boys loved playing in the fenced in backyard, while my wife and I loved the fully furnished kitchen and having drinks or BBQing on the deck. Just blocks away from the river, I didn't have any excuses to skip my morning run. With a great grocery store just several blocks away and the Corbett Fish House next door, I needed it too.

The one negative was that the driveway is long and narrow. Best not try to pull an SUV or bigger car in there unless you've got a good insurance company. There is usually plenty of parking on the street. Steve was a great host, full of tips but giving us our space. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

Steve & Michelle,

Your little "pink house" was the perfect long weekend place to stay for us. Our friends live just a mile or so away so was very convenient. The house was clean and charming. The coffee shop next door and the fish cafe next to that was great. We ate there late the first night, great fish tacos and the coffee house was great to just roll out of bed and have right there! Everything was as described and was very convenient to downtown. We would highly recommend to all, thanks again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! Our guests find the Corbett House a great place for a Portland experience that's very close to Downtown, but with a more comfortable, neighborhood-y feel. We hope you come back soon! Steve and Michelle

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Corbett House is perfect place for a visit to Portland. It's location is ideal...close enough to downtown to take public transit, yet in a quiet, quaint neighborhood. It's the prefect size for a group or family (up to four people) with two full bedroom. The decor is friendly and welcoming and the kitchen has everything needed. The deck is just the right size, complete with bbq. A great place to stay and a great bargain!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Corbett House was the perfect place to stay while visiting family in the area. We really enjoyed the local restaurants within walking distance and the river walk just a block away. The property is very comfortable with all the amenities and set in a lovely quiet neighborhood. I would love to stay here in the future.

Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Corbett House. It was immaculately clean and well-stocked. Great back yard and deck for relaxing. The neighborhood around the cottage is a quiet residential neighborhood, but it has coffee shops (next door) and restaurants you can walk to. We found it very convenient to all the sites we wanted to see during our stay. This house is a very cozy place to relax rather than being packed into a hotel room. We will definitely stay there again if we return to Portland.
