About Mark Hewitt

I am a proud native Portlander. I grew up here in the N/NE Portland I went to Grant High School and graduated from Portland State. I have watched this neighborhood blossom around me. I bought this home 16 years ago and have lived in it off and on for the last 12 years.

Mark Hewitt purchased this house in 1999

Why Mark Hewitt chose Humboldt

I bought this property because I was worried that if I didn't get a peice of the neighborhood I grew up in, that it was going to be gone.

What makes this house unique

I grew up in the Historical Irvington neighborhood here in NE Portland and have always loved older turn of the century homes. Pretty bay windows, built ins and hardwood floors. There is something cozy and comforting in these older homes for me.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Mark.  Our family very much enjoyed our stay at your house--it was perfect!  This was our first time renting a house, but thanks to how well things went it won't be our last time!

A lovely cozy place to stay in Portland

  • 5 of 5

This is a sweet old home full of character and charm. The perfect place to stay while visiting up north. I espically appreciated the very nice pillows, bedding,mattresses and towels. This location is close to everything and made our visit worth the while.

Thank you Mark.

We absolutely loved the bungalow and the neighborhood. Everything we could want for a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in other places and they were fine but usually small spaces. Not here. There is plenty of room to spread out, a nice backyard and seating on the front porch to enjoy the morning’s first cup. It was sparkling clean and comfortable. There is a good restaurant and bar across the street, a small veggie market and a neighborhood store very close by. And it is a short walk to the yummy food trucks on Mississippi, where we spent entirely too much time! We’ll be back in the future if it is available whenever we visit.

The house had everything we needed. It was clean. There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance. And there was parking on the property; a rarity in Portland. Highly recommend.

Perfect Location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Mark has a great property not far from the Mississippi District and Alberta Districts. Uber or Lyft to down town is nothing. Especially for the Street fair on Saturday and Sunday. Very comfortable couches and plenty of room to spread out. The single bath was not an issue, the upstairs has 2 twin beds that would be great for kids but the stairs are a bit steep as you'd expect in an older home.

We highly recommend staying here for location, comfort and amenities. Next time I will bring a hairdryer (my mistake).

Thanks for having us. Mark was a great host.

This home is in the Mississippi neighborhood, close to numerous restaurants, bars, and music venues.There is a Coffee shop (Albina Press) just a half a block away. Prost is also a popular bar specializing in German beer with amazing food carts surrounding it. One of my favorite spots is Mississippi Pizza also on Mississippi Ave. Williams Ave and Alberta St. - Good food, shopping, art and character unique to Portland. Google these streets to get a flavor. Mississippi Ave begins 3 blocks from the house. This home is also just 1 mile from Downtown and the Pearl District.
