The Homestead is a well loved bungalow in the Sellwood/West Moreland neighborhood in SE Portland. Don't be fooled, this is a big house! Our place is only footsteps to Saburo's Sushi House Restaurant, Moreland Theatre, Laurelwood Public House & Brewery, Westmoreland Nature Park, and Cork Screw Wine Bar. It's is good for couples, business travelers, and families (with kids). Public transportation is very close, too!
This is a well loved 1900's bungalow with old time charm and tasteful modern touches in over 1500 cozy square feet. In the front room, you'll see the gas fireplace perfect for relaxing with a book. The large picture windows allow plenty of afternoon sun, but are easily shaded with the wood-slat blinds. The kitchen has Maytag appliances and handsome granite counter-tops that match the bathroom. The breakfast nook is perfect for reading a magazine and enjoying your morning hot local tea or coffee. If you need to get done work done or prefer to stream shows from your phone, there's Wi-fi for your gadgets. Two bedrooms (with queen beds) are on the main floor on either side of the bathroom. While all the double-pane vinyl windows open to catch the breeze, there is air conditioning for those extra hot days. An optional bonus is upstairs with another queen size bed, for an additional fee.
A queen size air mattress can be set up in the corner bedroom, and a pack & play type bed is available for the littles.
Guests are welcome to all areas of the house except for the separate basement living space for our onsite manager and her 2 awesome kids.
The back yard is completely fenced in with a deck, lovely for enjoying your meal on a warm day. Be careful of the sprinklers in warmer months!
We try to do our part to keep Portland green and beautiful by only using biodegradable detergents/cleaners and earth friendly shampoo, conditioner & soap. Tap water is also delicious; a water filter is available in the fridge for your convenience. We also ask our guests to compost their food waste and recycle their glass, plastics and paper products. The garbage is only picked up citywide every two weeks, while recycling and compost are picked up every Tuesday. Thanks for helping us reduce our carbon footprint!
Parking is available on the driveway along the north side of the house, which can park up to 3 cars comfortably in tandem. Street parking is free all hours.
You and your guests will have the main level of the house (and the upstairs bonus room for a nominal fee) to yourselves but Natasha (onsite manager), my husband, or I can assist with anything!
The Neighborhood and Other things to note:
The Homestead has a high walkability score with the commercial district of West Moreland a few footsteps away. You'll find cafes, restaurants, the post office, shops, the local theater, Zoom Care, banks and QFC within a ten minute's walk. It's also very easy to hop on public transportation with 2 very close bus lines and the max line only 5 blocks east. Biking is a favorite way to travel, as well as cars for hire.
