Why The Owner chose Portland Heights

We own two homes in this area, so this is our 'extra house'. This is one of the original upscale neighborhoods in Portland established in the 1870's, always in high demand due its unique character and closeness to downtown.

What makes this house unique

Very close to all the action, music, theaters and restaurants in downtown Portland. Great walk to Council Crest Park with 360 degree view from the hilltop, lots of bike friendly paths. Near a great neighborhood market with Gourmet food, Wine (liquor) and deli.

Great stay as always

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed here before, and this time was just as nice as our previous visit. The only complaints are that the internet wifi was very unreliable and we could rarely connect, and the water pressure in the upstairs showers was just a dribble. Other than that, the beds were comfy, we enjoyed the fireplace, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Thanks!

This is an older home loaded with personality. Convenient location! Clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the character of this older home. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern enough for comfort. The other rooms are furnished with beautiful antiques. Read carefully the driving directions to be sure to get to the way to access the house. It is about 10 minutes from downtown and very convenient.

Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It was roomy enough for our family but still felt cozy and welcoming. The decor is lovely and fun. We enjoyed gathering by the fireplace in the comfy chairs, it was a great place to relax at home but also a short drive to shops and restaurants (not really walking distance so we needed a car). We would stay here again for sure!

Spacious House Worked Well for Us

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for our long weekend family gathering. The kitchen was well-equipped so we could prepare meals. The three bedrooms were quite spacious, and the bathrooms were adequate for the six of us. There was more than enough common space for the six of us and our in-town guests to socialize comfortably. We loved the location, up a hill on the west side of Portand with good views, but only a 10-15 minute drive to downtown. The internet connection worked fine for some of our devices, but a couple of us were unable to make the jump from the local network to the internet. We would definitely stay here again.

Great spot for a family or even 3 couples!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed here with each of our families of 4, for a total of 4 adults and 4 kids and it was the perfect space for us. Cozy living room and enough space to escape to one of the bedrooms to enjoy some quiet time. It’s a classic Portland craftsman style home, with some quirks that are expected with a home from that era. The House was clean, private and comfortable. Really, no complaints about the space! Only thing that I would suggest to the owners is to improve the traction on the wood deck walking up to the front door. It is old wood and when it is wet, it was VERY slippery. Two of us fell on the first day. After that we only walked on the 12-18 inches of deck closest to the home and we didn’t have any issues. The outside stairs all had gripper tape on them, but the deck could also benefit from it in the rainy season. The only other minor issue was that the dirty laundry from the previous guests was still on the top of the stairs leading to the basement. We didn’t really mind it because it wasn’t in the space we were using, but it might bother some other groups. Overall it was a fantastic stay, great location and easy to get to downtown PDX. We would stay here again on future visits is the home is available.
