Here is a recent review for your viewing:

'My husband and I rented this lovely Victorian for the week of Thanksgiving so we could spend the holiday with our two sons. The kitchen was more than adequately supplied with pots/pans, dishes and all the necessary cook ware for eating in! We felt like we were staying in a 'home away from our home.' Much better than staying in a hotel or condo! Ken was easily accessible to answer any of our questions and made us feel welcome and comfortable in the house. We are planning on returning in May of 2015. Would definitely recommend this vacation rental.'

*Weekly pricing gives renters 7 nights for the price of 6.

Please notify the owner if you plan to have more than 2 cars at the house as parking is limited. Also, if you plan to have more than 8 people at the house for an event, please let the owner know.

About Ken Murray

I am the property owner, live on the premises and am a world traveler (photo from Brazil) and love to host fellow travelers. My apartment is above the house providing security and service to my renters. I can also provide information on sightseeing, restaurants, wine tours, yoga and dance studios and hiking and biking in Portland.

Ken Murray purchased this house in 2004

Why Ken Murray chose Portland

I bought this large property so I could live in this fine neighborhood and also rent to guests. The area is great for recreation, sightseeing and family visits.

What makes this house unique

The Victorian has great access to downtown Portland while enjoying the quiet of a pretty neighborhood. The gardens, decks, hot tub and barbecue are enjoyable much of the year. Access to 3 freeways and other major avenues make sightseeing easy. Hillsdale also has its own Farmers Market.

A beautiful, comfortable, quiet home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group. The house is tastefully decorated and in immaculate condition. All of the rooms are generously sized and comfortable. The kitchen is large and equipped with nearly every dish, pan, and utensil you could want. It even included many condiments. The neighborhood is quiet and comfortable. The location is very good, especially if you are visiting nearby Lewis and Clark College. Ken was very helpful both before and during our visit. We plan to stay here again.

Charming place for family to be together

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational family (grandparents, parents, young kids) had a great stay at Ken's Victorian home in Portland. The home itself was very comfortable for all of us, with a spacious living room and kitchen / dining area where we could relax together. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also very pleasant and comfortable. Ken is a very nice host, and we enjoyed getting to know him a bit via a few chats on the beautiful porch and garden during our stay. The location was a perfect compromise between the city of Portland and the Willamette Valley wine country, so we could spend time visiting both places. We had planned to do more activities in Portland, but actually spent a couple of days just hanging out at the home because it was so relaxing. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this lovely home for our next Portland visit!

Beautiful, lovely, charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very charming home! The yard is absolutely beautiful, a nice porch, and the inside of the house is very well-maintained also. Spacious master bedroom and bathroom (with an AMAZING shower), and also a beautiful dining room and kitchen. The owner left us a bottle of wine on the dining room table, which was a thoughtful gesture and really made us feel like we were at a special place. There is a staircase by the living room that leads to a studio area (with a locked door), where the owner lives. He gave us our privacy, and we didn't even see him our entire stay with the exception of when we checked in, he showed us around the house. He is very friendly, kind, and helpful. The hot tub is outside off the back patio and is in between the house and the garage where there is another apartment that somebody also stays in, so there are other people on the property occasionally. Overall this was an excellent choice for a vacation rental, it was clean, beautiful, had all the amenities and more that anyone would need, and the owner is a very kind man! If you are looking for a beautiful, cozy, charming cottage in Portland, you can't get better than this! Also, a beautiful & safe neighborhood. Great choice, thank you, Ken! :)

Great place to stay for a family vacation!

My family of 6 stayed at the Victorian House and had a great vacation in Portland. It was 15 minutes from just about anything that you wanted to do. Everyone was comfortable. Thank you so much, Ken for your hospitality!
