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.

Enjoy your stay!!
Our family adored Raven's Nest and were very comfortable throughout our stay. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and Becky left some peppermint tea, coffee and instant oatmeal for our use, which was very considerate. The neighborhood was quiet and we slept soundly each night. The location is terrific and we had a wonderful time exploring Division, Hawthorne and Belmont Streets. The #4 bus is very close and easily brought us downtown. The restaurants in the neighborhood are excellent. Becky communicated promptly with us via email and made us feel right at home. She was very accommodating and helpful. It was a pleasure to meet her and we will definitely stay at Raven's Nest again on our next visit to Portland if the space is available.
Our stay at Raven' Nest was great. We always stay here when we come to Portland and everything works smoothly.
Becky provides toys for our granddaughter to play with when she visits and the apartment is clean and bright.
Thanks Becky for a wonderful stay!
Raven's Nest was the perfect home away from home. Cozy, comfortable, quiet and in a great location. An easy walk to lots of food and coffee options on SE Division and well situated for public transportation. (We didn't have a car, but parking would have been very easy.) The apartment was clean, welcoming, and exactly as pictured. The hosts were great, and the entire process from booking to checkout was very easy and efficient. Overall a great experience.
Staying at the raven's nest was great. It is in a great location, clean, and convenient. I would definitely return.
We enjoyed our stay at the Raven's Nest very much. If we had any questions for Becky her responses were immediate. We felt very much at home and would love to make this our stay again.
First of all, communication leading up to and during our stay was superior. Becky was quick to respond, flexible and pleasant. couldn't ask for a better host.
Raven's Nest is cute and cozy. Plenty of blankets, towels and kitchen supplies. The bathroom is spacious and there are plenty of windows.
In terms of location, Raven's Nest is fantastic. Cute, safe neighborhood, near the bus line, great for walking. If you like to eat, do not hesitate: book here. Within walking distance of Pok Pok, Salt and Straw, Bollywood Theatre and Trinket, you'll be close to some of the best eating.
Overall, I am so so happy with our decision to book a stay here. Highly recommended. A million stars!
I am a stay at home mom of two children (we live in the downstairs home). Our parents, when they visit us, stay the upstairs unit that we have available on airbnb. My husband works in the field of early childhood education and I teach art classes.
We love gardening and spending time outdoors, camping, hiking and playing with our kids. We enjoy spending time in our neighborhood, walking to our organic grocery store, restaurants and coffee shops.
