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. Large family dining room table sits up to 12 for family gatherings. The house also has a large backyard and gas BBQ. A dog may be welcome depending on breed (please inquire).

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. Downtown Portland is a quick 7 to 9-minute drive.

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 to 9-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.

Wonderful family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was homey and comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone, and it was very quiet. We had so much fun playing ping pong in the Rec room. The kitchen was well equipped too. We’ll definitely come back again!

Mt. Tabor house was a great property for our Christmas family trip.

  • 5 of 5

The house was just what we needed. We were in Portland for a family reunion during the Christmas holiday. JJ was the perfect hostess since we were flying into Portland late the day before Christmas Eve a family member was able to do a quick grocery trip and drop off food for the morning before we got there. The weather didn't cooperate too well with a mix of icy precipitation. However JJ was on it and had a snow shovel and icy melt outside the back door. We were able to clear the back walkway and the sidewalk outside the house so we could at least make it to our rental car. If only the city of Portland worked as quickly. We had our grandson who is 18 months staying with us and the pack n play and high chair were great to have! Those were great amenities to have so we didn't have to lug them across the country. Thanks for offering a wonderful place to stay in a wonderful city.
