Lovely, serene, and charming, the Feathered Nest exceeded our expectations. This property is beautifully maintained and provides everything needed for a stay in the city with careful consideration for anyone who might visit. There was privacy for both bedrooms. This home is in a great and walkable location in a quiet neighborhood. We traveled with our dog and found an excellent park nearby. We hope to visit this property again sometime!

Beautiful home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

You will not find a better location for walking to great restaurants, sights and shops in the Pearl district as well as 21st and 23rd Streets. The "Nest" is a beautiful home away from home and perfect for 2 couples. You have absolutely everything you need. It was perfectly clean and ready for us. We look forward to making this an annual Portland getaway.

House with Character in a Perfect Location. Highly Recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at Debbie's place in NW Portland! We loved the decor, the location, the cleanliness and the fun character of her craftsman home. The pictures don't do the units justice as they are even more beautiful and spacious in person. Thanks for providing the perfect house for our ladies' getaway!
