About the property

The perfect family home located in Portland's vibrant and hip Southeast side with views of Mt. Hood. This light-filled large and airy home has bedrooms on two floors plus a fully finished basement with a family room, ping pong table, wet bar and additional fireplace. The house also has a large backyard and gas BBQ.

While the Mt. Tabor Park neighborhood is quiet and residential, it sits in the middle of four of the most vibrant commercial neighborhoods in Portland - Montevilla/Stark, Hawthorne, Belmont and Division Street SE. You can easily walk to movie theaters, some of the best restaurants in town, plenty of shopping and really good coffee.

Our home offers cozy living with plenty of space, with large rooms, great entertaining areas and a huge private backyard with family dining area that is perfect for backyard BBQs. The large kitchen and separate dining room are perfect for family gatherings, as is the big family room and rec room in the finished basement. There are two fireplaces, hardwood floors throughout, a large family room and two and a half bathrooms. Two car private driveway and plentiful unrestricted street parking.

Tasteful decor and a well-stocked linen closet and kitchen, central heat, Apple TV with Netflix, HBO and Hulu and high-speed WiFi make this home perfect for longer stays or family gatherings. We even have toys for kids and a Pak and Play. We try our best to make our home feel like your home away from home. We feature 100% cotton or linen 400+ thread count sheets and bedding throughout the house, as well as soft fluffy 100% cotton towels.

The house is located 1/2 a block from the entrance to Mt. Tabor Park, one of the best neighborhoods in Portland. The park is great for running, hiking, biking, tennis, and picnics. A short walk through the parklands you in Portland's Hawthorne District which is lined with shops and restaurants. Downtown Portland is an easy 7-minute drive. Public transportation is as close as a block away.

Mt. Tabor Park surrounds the now extinct Mt. Tabor volcano, which is the only volcano within city limits in the U.S. and has long been extinct. The 'hill' is now a gorgeous city park with hiking and biking trails, family picnic areas, basketball and tennis courts, reservoirs and amazing views of Mt. Hood and downtown Portland.

We love it here.

The house worked well for our family of two couples, one adult daughter, and adult + 6yr old.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very nice for visiting with family members, sharing meals, and walking up the Mt. Tabor trails. Everything was easily found and the owner responded to one question we had almost immediately.

Lovely home, clean, very accommodating, wonderful neighborhood, easy to get around

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed JJ's home. Despite the crazy unusually hot temps, she had plenty of fans available to keep us calm and cool! The home has a great layout for larger groups and a spacious backyard to enjoy eating meals outside or visiting. The ping pong table in the basement provided some entertainment and the front rooms were perfect for relaxing or just visiting. I highly recommend this listing!!

Wonderful place to stay. We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience. First off, we loved Portland. It's a fantastic city with so much to do and easy day trips to beautiful places. And JJs house was the perfect home base. It really is a home. It feels like being home. It's well stocked and comfy and clean. Plus, it's in a great location! The neighborhood is tucked right next to the very beautiful Mt. Tabor Park and up on a hill (we could see Mt. Hood). But it's also really close to some great shopping and dining districts. We loved having brunch as Coquine just a few blocks away, taking a stroll through the park, and hanging out in the Hawthorne area. Downtown was close - we spent an entire afternoon at Powells Bookstore. We would definitely pick this home again. It was a great stay!

good place

  • 4 of 5

I needed a quiet place to stay and this neighborhood worked out well. The house its self is not quiet...its older and the floors & stairs do make noise but since it was just my mom & myself it wasn't an issue for me. We had 1 extremely hot day and the house did get very hot (no a/c) but otherwise we loved this place. Great location, great neighborhood, plenty of room and we loved having 2 sofa's to lounge on!
