Why Kimberly Jackson chose Hillsdale
We bought this home in 2005. We loved the area, as we can get into and out of downtown through the hills in a matter of minutes, as we are only 3 miles away. This is a VERY safe neighborhood and it is very kid-friendly with many parks and places to visit with kids. We love that you can walk to the Sunday Farmer's Market, the Library, Starbucks, two playgrounds, even the organic grocery store. It feels like a small town, yet just minutes from the hustle and bustle of the big city!
What makes this House unique
This is a quiet neighborhood where you hear more wildlife than the noise of people or traffic. It is serene and very private.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Perfect for a Family
My husband and I loved that the house was very kid friendly with toys, kids beds, so we didn't have to bring extra.
The location was great, very close to everything we wanted to see (Washington park for the zoo and children's museum, downtown and the amusementpark), house was cute with a big backyard. Our daughter goes to bed early (6:30/7pm) so it would have been nice to have more cable options like Netflix or Amazon to watch in the evening and a bigger tv, but we were able to rent redbox so it worked out. Overall super happy with the property.
Nice house with amazing backyard
Very nice house. Clean, fully equipped with everything you might need. Convenient and quiet location. And backyard is just amazing.
Great stay with friends at the Pumpkin house
We met another couple at the Pumpkin house and explored Portland. Had a great time.
I can not say enough good things about this property! My spouse and I stayed there with our 4-legged companions for 11 nights while our home in Portland underwent remodeling. We felt so relaxed and supported in this home. If you are looking for a true taste of Portland, I would highly recommend this the Pumpkin House. The house is located closely outside of Portland in a very quiet and hilly area abounding with greenery. This is vintage Portland at its finest! The home is decorated in quintessential, funky Portland style. Someone obviously put a lot of thought and effort into making this home a delightful retreat spot for couples and families. The backyard is the crowning glory of this place. We were there in May and the beautifully manicured garden was in full bloom! There were roses blooming everywhere. There were also calla lillies, tiger lillies, and many others I can't name. The hot tub is sparkling clean and located near the house, where many bird and squirrel feeders attract all sorts of furry, cute critters. I could watch them play for hours. This property has obviously been well loved for a very long time. If you are visiting Portland, want something close-in and quiet, and love nature, I highly recommend this house. Kimberly was a great host and responded quickly and kindly to any questions I had.
Great location in picturesque neighborhood.
We felt really comfortable spending a long Mother’s Day weekend here. Lots of great toys and games for our daughter. The garden out back is beautiful. We loved heading into Hillsdale proper for breakfast at Gi Gi’s and an ice cream cone at Hill Dairy. We recommend this location highly for families.
Beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood
Great location. House and garden is beautiful for kids and pets. Hot tub is perfect in the evenings. Close to parks for walks and play with young children. Long term tenant in adjoining apartment was a bit of a surprise as you could hear talking and TV but never really affected us.
So happy you enjoyed our home :) Pls come again, you were an awesome guest :)
The City of Portland requires a long term resident be on the property of any vacation rental. This resident shares no space with The Pumpkin House. This resident has a separate entrance and no access to your home. The resident is not allowed in the backyard, garage, front porch, hot tub, etc. The other unit is locked off from the vacation rental side and the vacation rental side is locked off from the long term resident side. Hope that helps clarify the situation :) Every vacation rental in Portland SHOULD operate in this fashion or they are operating illegally :/
1 hour to year round skiing at Mt Hood. Just 3 miles from Washington Park where the Zoo, Rose Garden, Japanesse Garden, and 32 miles of Trail Heads are!
