This is our second time staying at the Hawthorne Condos. I can’t say enough about how charming, well-equipped and clean these condos are. Kim and her family are always very welcoming and helpful. There is plenty of parking, with restaurants and shopping within an easy walk. Both my husband and I look forward to our next visit to the Mt. Tabor neighborhood and will definitely stay at these condos.
This is the one of coziest places we've been to. Everything is as described, I give this place a 6 star rating. Definitely coming back!
We were welcomed by our host as we were shown the ropes and reviewed the amenities and our responsibilities. The cottage was homey and comfortable with everything we needed. Within walking distance to shops, coffee places, restaurants, and nightlife the location was perfect for us during our visit. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Kim was very warm, and welcoming, but left us to ourselves after running through some brief instructions. She was a great host. She upgraded us to a slightly larger condo, just because it was ready. The Butternut has a unique sense of humorous style. I love the rooster theme in the kitchen, it was nearly tongue in cheek. The bed was a Kind size! Kim has bikes for rent, and bike storage down below in the basement. What a nice feature! The place is on 50th and Hawthorne, so it is across the street from the Albina Press coffee shop, which has been renowned for years & years. On the corner there is a bakery, where we got awesome muffins for breakfast one day. The Sapphire it also right there, which is a great date/drink establishment. The only late night food near by is Zack's Shack, with hotdogs until 2am? Loved it all. It was a wonderful way to come home to Portland & my Fiance, after living abroad for the summer in Italy.
The hosts met us and explained how everything worked and parking possibilities.
