Check out our guidebook for some of our favorites! We are also close to Hawthorne, well known for its shopping. Our home is in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood with craftsman style homes. Easy walk (10 minute) to organic grocery store, New Seasons Market. To get downtown or to the rest of the city the Bus stop is 1 block away and around the corner, though Hawthorne and Division/Clinton streets are walkable.

Other Things to Note

IMPORTANT: The home is the 2nd floor unit in a busy family home with 2 young children 2 and 6 years old. We try our best to create a quiet environment for our guests during late evening and early morning hours but sound carries easily in this nearly 100 year old home. Our kids definitely bustle around during the daytime. Both units (upper and lower) are completely separated and there is a private exterior entry into the 2nd floor apartment.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The Raven's Nest was a wonderful place to call home in Portland - the area was perfect (SE Division), it was just 2 blocks from a Stumptown Coffee location, and it was comfortable and well-equipped with amenities. Becky was a really great host, and had the suite set up very well for guests. This was a really great first experience with Airbnb - thanks so much Becky!

  • Having three girls, two of them are teens, we looked for an apartment in a nice, quite, neighborhood, where we can cook our holiday dinner and have enough space for each of us to relax after a day in the city. Raven's Nest was the perfect home away from home for us for our 2 magical nights and days in Portland. The apartment was well equipped with bed sheets, towels and kitchen utensils. It was nicely decorated, and had a cozy and warm atmosphere. the neighborhood is charming and there is a great coffee place just around the corner. Shops and restaurants are very close by. I wish we could stay longer...Thank you Becky and family!

  • Becky was a wonderful host and her apartment was lovely. Coffee was delicious. We loved the neighborhood as well - the quiet residential area is just a few minutes from great stores and restaurants.

    April 2014
  • We enjoyed staying at Raven's Nest. It was the perfect place to take our 2 year old granddaughter to play with the toys Becky has considerately stocked the apartment with.

    Ravens' Nest is in a great neighborhood with lots of restaurants, etc.

    We will definitely book again in the future.

  • Great stay. Becky was very helpful with local restaurant suggestions and making sure our crib rental arrived before we did. Home was very comfortable for my husband, mother and 1 1/2 year old. There were plenty of toys, books and even a booster seat for him to use. Make it MUCH nicer than staying in a hotel or typical B&B.

    April 2014
  • This was a great spot. We stayed here with our 10 month old and the place was very kid friendly. There were lots of books and toys there were new and exciting to our little guy, which was great.

    The house is located in a great neighborhood in Portland. You can walk to countless restaurants and cafes. My favorites were the Woodsman for breakfast sandwiches, Petite Provence for pastries, Ava Genes for dinner and many other spots on Division.

  • The Raven's Nest was the perfect spot for our girls weekend in PDX. The apartment was located right off Division St so we could walk everywhere for food, coffee, and shopping. We loved the SE neighborhood and having a Stumptown right down the street, and are so glad we stayed there. Thanks Becky and family for making us feel so welcome and providing such a great place for us to call home during our stay :)

  • Raven's Nest in Portland, OR, is charming, comfortable, and cozy. The owners thought of everything to make our stay delightful. The kitchen was stocked with essentials, there were plenty of linens, and even extra blankets. The owners were present on the property, but noninterfering-- just helpful. They corresponded by email-- even while we were right upstairs! All of us in our party were happy with the accommodations.

    February 2014
  • Becky's house was awesome! Located in a great area of Portland with lots of bars/cafes and places to eat close to the house. Highly recommend this house to any first time travellers to Portland!

    February 2014
