Buckman house description

UNIQUE and QUIET.....HISTORIC NEIGHBORHOOD.....

BUCKMAN HOUSE is a beautifully furnished home, where families and friends can spend time getting re-connected while enjoying many fun games, fine cooking amenities, and a nice collection of art and antiques. It has become a treasured gathering place for travelers from near and far. Come and experience a stay at the Buckman House for yourself!

With a Walkscore of 90 and located less than 1 mile from Downtown in Portland's trendy east side, the Buckman House is close to everything: Oregon Convention Center, Rose Garden Arena, Memorial Coliseum, OHSU, PSU, OMSI, Lloyd Center shopping, and award winning restaurants and close to Waterfront Park, I-5 & I-84.

You'll be staying within a short distance of downtown,but with lots of neighborhood amenities; Laurelhurst Theater-Pub is just a few blocks away, and Buckman School Playground is only 1 block. It has climbing structures, a year round PUBLIC SWIMMING POOL, and is dog friendly. Mass transit is very close and several grocery stores are within a mile.

Local art work, nostalgic collectibles, 'retro' new appliances as well as new high quality pillow-top beds. Pendelton blankets throughout give the Buckman House a very 'homey' feel!

Whether you visit for work or play or both, a stay at the Buckman House will bring added meaning to your stay in Portland.
