Sellwood Guest Home Was Fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Rich and Patsy's Sellwood guest home. It's very clean and has everything you could possibly want. They have put a lot of effort into making sure you have a great stay . And what a great time we had in Sellwood. We loved the town and how close it was to Portland. We are already trying to plan a return trip.

Wonderful stay in Sellwood.

  • 5 of 5

My family recently spent 5 nights over the Thanksgiving holiday at Rich and Patsy's guest house. It was very comfortable for all of us and we really enjoyed it. Rich and Patsy have thought of everything to make the house welcoming and have provided everything you need. We love the location within walking distance to many restaurants and the beautiful Sellwood Park where we often went for walks. The house is very new, clean, and we hope to stay there again on a future trip to Portland. Thank you, Rich and Patsy!

Nice property with 3 major flaws

  • 1 of 5

The property was nice as seen in the photos. However there were 3 problems that made our weekend stay very uncomfortable. The place was cold, cold, cold (despite having a space heater) necessitating that we spend most of our time upstairs under the covers. The space is a fishbowl with no covering on windows facing the neighbors in the bathrooms and no coverings on several windows facing the owner's house. The owner was the third issue. Despite having a lockbox he insisted on showing us the place, and going over the MANY rules detailed in the doc he previously emailed. If you are looking for privacy, this might not be the best place for you.

Owner's Response: Margaret, We're sorry for whatever reasons, you did not have a positive experience. Please understand that we had no intention of imposing on your privacy, but meeting and greeting our guests shortly after they arrive is a standard courtesy that is given to everyone to ensure that they will be comfortable. For room temperature comfort, the remote control for the wall heating unit was placed along with the welcome information on the counter and would easily have raised the temperature for you as high as you liked. I said also, on my way out, 'please text me if you have any questions'. One brief text from you and we would quickly have resolved your heating issues. Per your suggestion we have installed privacy film on the two small bathroom windows. For the purpose of privacy, there are and have been window coverings on every first floor window facing the owners house. With mostly 5 star reviews from 120 guests over the past two years, we feel blessed that our guest house has been a great success. We're sorry that we weren't able to meet your needs.

Great home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable accommodations for our first visit to Portland. Great walkable location to explore restaurants, antique shops and wonderful bakery.

Hosts were available for questions and very hospitable. Great beds, clean, and equipped with everything one might need.

We would highly recommend for Portland visitors. Not sure about public transportation because we had a rental car.

Owner's Response: Dick & Julie, It was a pleasure having you both stay with us. Glad to hear that you were so comfortable and enjoyed the neighborhood while visiting family in Portland. And your grand daughter placing 23rd out of 300 in a national race! How amazing is that. Congratulations! Please come back again on your next visit. Rich & Patsy-

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest homes we have stayed in. So beautifully built and spacious.

Plenty of parking, cooking utensils, comfortable seating, and overall lots of room. Patsy and Rich are easy and gracious to deal with and helped to make our stay very comfortable.

Quaint and modern

  • 5 of 5

Patsy and Rich were kind and courteous. They live on property and even though we were close, we had privacy and enjoyed that. They were quite responsive to needs. The home is in a super quaint neighborhood within walking distance to the cute town of Sellwood. The home itself is super modern and beautiful and the hosts have thought of little details to make it a grade A!!

The Neighborhood

Sellwood is one of Portland’s oldest and most walkable neighborhoods, popular for its close proximity to downtown. It overlooks the Willamette River and has some of the most beautiful parks in Portland.

You can walk to 3 different parks and the Willamette River all within just 10 minutes. Sellwood Park is just 3 blocks, New Seasons organic grocery store is also nearby along with numerous coffee shops, wine bars, pubs, bakeries, food carts, yoga, palates, antiques stores and restaurants in the surrounding area. There is a bike path just a few blocks away- the Springwater Corridor trail - that goes straight to downtown in just 3 miles ride - or it will take you 15 minutes to drive to downtown. Our neighborhood has the soft, green comfort & safety of a charming small town, but with the style, excitement and access of city life.

Short List of Neighborhood Amenities:

- The new Westmoreland Park & nature based play area - a must for children.

- Moreland Theatre –a Cool single-screen neighborhood style theater

- Westmoreland Golf Course

- Reed College Campus

- Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge!

- Sellwood Cycle Bike Store, just up the street

-Sellwood Branch Library
