One of five artist-made guest rooms in a recently renovated 1902-built hostel/B&B near Hawthorne, Belmont, Division & Downtown. Walking distance to variety of restaurants, bars, theaters, shops, grocery stores, parks & public transit. Memory-foam queen bed with overhanging hammock. Kitchen, dining room & living room access.

The space

With an aesthetic created in part from salvaged strips of lumber from a small wood mill down the street, Mill Room was designed by me, Evan Cael, "Inn Keeper" at 1234 House. Sway on the canvas hammock hanging over a queen-size memory-foam bed. A couch and table also provide a place to relax.

Mill Room is one of five guest rooms at 1234 House designed by a local artist. The house, built in 1902, was recently renovated from the ground up, with an eye toward art, community and providing a unique space for travelers to call home while visiting Portland.

Guest access

Just down the hall is a shared bathroom with clawfoot tub and tile mosaic wrapping the walls. A second shared bathroom on the main floor has a shower. Make use of the washer/dryer on the second floor. Relax on a giant chaise lounge in the living room or play a song on the red piano. Take a break from the restaurant crowds and make a meal in the kitchen. Sit at the 11-foot Doug-Fir-slab dining table.

•Air mattress if you don't want to share a bed or if there will be a third or fourth person in your party ($25/night for each guest beyond 2. Max 4)

Interaction with guests

I live here. I'm Evan, 36, a native Portlander. I'm happy to chat or provide tips about the city. Also happy to go about my routine with little obtrusion.

Other things to note

There is no off-street parking here. We live on a corner, so there is typically plenty of curbside parking in front of the house. A local church has a 40-spot parking lot across the street they make available to the public everyday but Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday.

If you arrive before our 2 p.m. check-in, or when departing your travel plans are later than our 11 a.m. check-out, you're welcome to leave your luggage at the house where they'll be safe and head out on an outing, or you're more than welcome to hang out in the common areas of the house (kitchen, dining room, living room, front outdoor patio). Just leave your bags in the living room on the window seat.

If you are coming to Portland for a few days, you can't go wrong with this place. Although we didn't meet Evan in person, his very quick responses made checking in and out very easy. The rooms are very comfy, stylish, and private. The location is also pretty ideal. It is only a few blocks (and by a few, I mean 1 or 2) from Hawthorne Blvd, one of the hippest streets in Portland (very short walk from Tov, an Egyptian coffee shop in a bus, and Fried Egg I'm In Love, home of the best egg sandwich you'll ever try). Getting into downtown only takes about 10-15 minutes by bus and less by Uber. All in all, I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Portland for a few nights.

Felt super safe here. Each door has its own code lock. As a single woman traveling alone felt super safe. Got some great sleep too! House was quiet and respectable.

The 1234 house is awesome. Really cool room design, great location, and Evan is really friendly. It's a bargain, I'll definitely try staying here next time I'm in Portland. Would highly recommend it!

Evan User ProfileEvan is a superhost.

My name is Evan. I'm a native Portlander who has lived, worked and traveled elsewhere but now feel fortunate to be living in my beautiful home town. I recently spent two years leading the complete renovation of this 1902-built house, and very much learning how to do it on the job. I enjoy playing music and going to local live shows, chatting on porches and taking walks in the neighborhood. I used to be a journalist and lived/worked as a writer in Lima, Peru several years ago. Now, running 1234 House is my primary focus.
