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.
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!
I stayed at Becky's place with three of my girlfriends for three nights and we had such a lovely time! Comfy beds, cosy living room, clean bathroom and the cutest kitchen. There are lots of privacy and Becky's super accommodating. I highly recommend staying here.
This apartment worked well for my friend and I while we stayed in Portland for a workshop. The sheets and blankets on the beds were super cozy and the fireplace heated up the whole unit really well. I appreciated the consideration for guests- they have a coffee grinder and some coffee to choose from, cable tv, the hosts didn't intrude on our privacy...
Just a couple of things were a challenge. The noise from the hosts downstairs kept us awake a few nights and woke us quite early a few mornings. I became self conscious of the noise I was contributing and worried they were hearing our conversations or our clomping about upstairs. Also, the wireless internet was a bit spotty at times and wouldn't come in all the way on a regular basis.
Other than those things, it was a good place to stay. Convenient to fun and bustling Portland streets and good grocery stores.
Sorry about the noise! Our toddler had a serious bronchial infection that week and was up in the night needing a lot of care. Not our usual. We rarely if ever hear our guests upstairs - not the tv, talking, etc. The internet is now fixed - sorry we didn't know it was being troublesome! It was just a loose antennae - a quick fix.
This private, two bedroom (upper floor of two-story home) was perfect for a set of grandparents, a set of parents, and a little granddaughter. Very family-friendly, with a well-stocked kitchen. Quiet and stocked with all that we needed for a wonderful stay together.
This is a spacious and light apartment that worked well for our family of four. We normally need to rent two hotel rooms as we have 14 year old twins requiring a bit of privacy but this place and its two bedrooms worked well. It was plenty warm during a winter holiday stay. The kitchen was perfect for morning coffee and breakfast.
The location of this property is fine for exploring Richmond/Division street which is one of Portland's most interesting especially for "foodies". Two blocks to Stumptown, one of the best coffee shops on the planet!
The vintage feel of the place ties in perfectly to the neighborhood and all things good about PDX. Skip the hotel and stay here!
Excellent service and very cozy. Wonderfully centrally located and easy to access. Loved the kitchen and the overall feel. There were 4 of us so it was a little tight but very doable.
The Raven's Nest was perfect for our party of 3, then 4 people. The location is great, with Stumptown Coffee within short walking distance and many restaurants and shops within moderate to longer walking distances. The common area was cozy with lots of light and furniture in good condition. The beds were all comfortable with quality linens. The kitchen worked perfectly for basic cooking (coffee, bagels, reheating leftovers, etc.). My 2 big criteria were met: strong wifi and plenty of hot water!
Convenient and safe location, with a beautiful interior. Could not have asked for more!
Was great value for money. Quiet, comfortable and really suited us with two adults and two small children. Utmost privacy, no complaints at all. Stump town coffee was really good too,
