About Deb Grant

The 'small city, big town' aspect of Portland is what drew us to Portland 25 years ago. I'm a Montana girl who loves the vibrancy of an urban atmosphere, and the culture of both countryside and town. My husband Chuck and I have partnered on many projects through the years. He currently lives on site, and I live a mile away. We enjoy working together and have put a lot of love into the Portland Belmont House. We now enjoy sharing it with others.

Deb Grant purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Deb Grant chose Portland

We bought this property because of its location, bones and vibes! 128 years of stories to tell. A diamond in the rough with unique character and hidden elegance made it a place worth putting our heart and soul into renovating. The rustic concrete counter tops and restored original cabinet (found on the back porch) balance out the vibrant splashes of color and high end appliances of the kitchen. Solar panels, stagger studded walls, and ample insulation look to the future while the 8' wood pocket doors, original fir floors, and intricately carved wood work reveal the past. All new electric and plumbing, and sound absorption channels between floors, help remove the unnecessary aggravations of the past to better enjoy the beauty of the space.

What makes this apartment unique

Portland Belmont House provides a quiet, comfortable home stay within a vibrant, fascinating part of Portland. We are 3 blocks from the famous Sunflower Intersection at SE 33rd and Yamhill, a uniquely Portland part of Portland. The house charms people. The great yard, patio, barbecue, (and fire pit too!) make a person feel out in the countryside, yet, only a block and a half away are the shops, world class, affordable restaurants, gourmet grocery stores, food carts galore. Public transportation is a stone's throw away. Drive down the street and you are in downtown Portland in 4 minutes. Everything you need right out your door.

A home away from home with character

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to explore new neighbors and easy walking distance to cool shops and public transportation, then the Belmont house is for you. Plus, it's the entire upper floor of a 100+ year old Victorian – lots of character and charm. The two bedrooms, plus the fold out Murphy bed in the front room meant everyone in our three-person group had ample space to spread out. All the beds were very comfortable. Between the TV, books, board games and wifi there are a lot of things to do if you just want to stay in too. There's even access to a downstairs washer and dryer which was very convenient. Although Belmont street is busier in the day, we never have an issue with noise.

We did have a rental car, but street parking was more than adequate. And if you're without a car the #15 bus stop is just down the street so downtown Portland is just a short trip away. We could of easily gotten around just by taking public transportation. There's also many stores, (including a Fred Meyer) coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Comfortable, clean, a good location and everything you need for a short trip to a wonderful city.

Lovely period property, great location for Belmont and Hawthorne

  • 5 of 5

3 of us stayed for 3 nights in early October. Deb was welcoming and accommodating and gave us some helpful recommendations for local restaurants. The place was clean and well supplied. Although the house is 130 years old it is in great condition and very comfortable. The shops, bars and restaurants of Belmont are minutes away on foot. This is a great location if you want to stay in the Belmont Hawthorne area. The 15 bus which stops 2 mins away is frequent and takes about 30 mins to get Downtown. For us: best local bar Circa 33, best restaurant, Accanto, best microbrewry, Rogue. We also enjoyed 2 hour cycle tour of Downtown. In summary a great place to stay in a great city.

Fantastic spot!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great, the location, the house, responsiveness from the host. The 3 sleeping spaces gave us plenty of room as a group of 5 to spread out and the kitchen and deck were perfect spots to wind down.

I'd highly recommend this place.

Great upstairs apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in southeast Portland. The neighborhood is very walkable with lots of shops and restaurants close by. It's on a Main Street but noise wasn't a problem. The air conditioners worked great. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed. Thanks so much, Deb. We loved your apartment.

Cute funky apartment

  • 4 of 5

Cute funky apartment in the Belmont district. Ate right across the street the first night. Very good Thai. The living room chair was extremely comfortable for watching the TV. Nice for two couples. It is an upstairs unit so children might be too noisy for the other tenants. Would definitely go back.

Nice apartment in good location for exploration

  • 5 of 5

My family (4 of us) stayed here for a night in August. It's right on a main street but the noise didn't bother us at all. There's a nice little balcony to watch the sunset and street below. The house is old but is very clean and has neat features in it. The kitchen is plenty big for preparing and eating meals, and the bedrooms are nice. The one in the back is a little bigger.
