The Clinton/Division neighborhood is home to some of the best restaurants, bars and Cafes in Portland. In spite of the recent gentrification, the old feel of gritty SE PDX is still visible at the Clinton St. movie theater, the oldest theater west of the Mississippi.
We are two blocks from the #4 bus on Division which will get you downtown in about 12 minutes. 15 mins. walk to the Eastside light rail.

The Old Portland house is gorgeous and inviting. Stayed with a group and it was always a delight to return to a house that felt like "home." Was perfect for preparing and sharing meals, and ample space so everyone could still have privacy. Neighborhood is very walkable and so charming. Elliott was great and communicative with us during our stay. Absolutely would recommend it.
Wonderful cosy home in the heart of East PDX. We came from a conference in SF for a team offsite and Elliott's house was just what we were looking for (great collection of books to discover and so many thoughtful tips for the area left behind!). No doubt one of the reasons we enjoyed Portland so much - thanks for being an amazing host, Elliott and sharing your family's home with us. Big G'day from Australia!
Perfect way to experience Portland. Well-appointed, spacious house with a lot of charm in a centrally located neighborhood. Elliot was a spectacular host and very good about correspondence. Would recommend to everyone. Thank you again!
Neighborhood is cute, quiet, residential -- you can hear the trains at night. House is not A/C but you don't need it as it cools off at night in Portland and we loved having the windows open and hearing trains and crickets. HOst has very good instructions and left things well set for us. Communications were excellent.
Our family had a great time at Elliot's wonderful house. Wonderful Portland neighborhood. Couldn't ask for more. Michael Baron
My team and I booked Elliott's house to use for a catalog shoot, so we were only here for the day. But boy, it sure was nice. Elliott arranged leaving the key with us and we arrived to everything as he promised, clean and organized.
This house is so much fun and serene to be in! We all wanted to spend the day lounging and reading from his extensive book collection in the converted attic space while lazily glancing out the window at the beautiful foliage. The built-ins throughout the house were gorgeous, I would definitely want to stay in this space if I was visiting from out of town.
Elliott was prompt with all correspondence and very patient in working with me to arrange a "stay" for just the day.
Hi, I am Elliott. I am a Latin American history professor at Lewis & Clark College in Portland. My research is on late nineteenth century borderlands history, and more recently about Chinese migration in the Americas. My partner, Reiko, is also a history professor at Lewis & Clark. She studies the built environment and the US South in the 19th century. We both love to bike in the city, and eat great food in the neighborhood. We have a 13-year old daughter who likes making movies and playing volleyball.
