Built in a stunning inn that dates back to 1909 and located in the heart of the trendy Division St. neighborhood, Evermore Guesthouse combines the best aspects of hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, and vacation rentals to offer a stylish, comfortable, and uniquely Portland experience that will have you asking when you can book your next trip immediately upon check-in.
Evermore Guesthouse has five guest rooms - three standard and two suites. All the rooms mix traditional furnishings with shabby chic details, creating a distinct boho vibe. The suites offer an additional living space (complete with comfy couches and loveseats) and private balconies - perfect for sitting outside and enjoying a glass of wine.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Evermore Guesthouse doesn’t automatically service guest rooms during your stay, so if you want the towels or linens replaced, you’ll need to ask.
Each of the rooms at Evermore Guesthouse has its own en-suite bathroom. All the bathrooms are spacious and well-designed, and all except the first floor studio come equipped with a clawfoot soaking tub.
If you’re traveling on a romantic getaway, be sure to request the 3rd-floor suite, which features an ::ahem:: modern 2-person shower.
There’s no lobby at Evermore Guesthouse, but there is a sitting room - and all we can say is WOW. From the brick fireplace to the patterned hardwoods, the built-ins to the windows, Evermore Guesthouse has maintained a lot of the property’s original architectural details, and they’re given center stage in the sitting room.
Every stay at Evermore Guesthouse comes with access to their continental breakfast, which features coffee, tea, milk, juice, hot chocolate, and a decent selection of breakfast foods like scones, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, bagels, cereal, and oatmeal.
Evermore Guesthouse has a private parking lot where you can park your car for free during your stay (and if you rented a bicycle, there’s bike parking, too!). If you’re relying on public transportation, the nearest bus stop is just ¼ block away.
No trip to Portland would be complete without a stop at Pok Pok (10-minute walk), a Thai restaurant famous for their signature dish: Ike’s Vietnamese Fish Sauce chicken wings. Another can’t miss? Apizza Scholls (6-minute drive), which is, hands down, the best pizzeria in Portland (and, according to The Daily Meal’s annual list, one of the best pizzerias in the country).
Stop by Mcmenamins Theater & Pub (15-minute walk) where you can sample from a solid selection of local brews and spirits in the pub - and then right into the theater to enjoy a flick and some popcorn. Another great option is North Bar (14-minute walk), a low-key spot where you can play a game of pool or darts with the Division St. crowd while sampling from their impressive beer list.
WHY WE LIKE IT

If you’re planning on staying in Southeast Portland, Evermore Guesthouse should be at the top of your list.
