“One of a kind downtown private home for your large group”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016
person found this review helpful

We rented both the downstairs and the main house units for a family wedding in Portland. There really is nothing else like the Hafner Manse. Sharon was a delight to work with and helped answer questions as we planned. She left us a lovely welcome basket and provided assistance throughout our stay.

There's so much to like about the Hafner Manse. It's an opportunity to "live" in the kind of home from another generation, with large gracious rooms and space to spread out. We were able to cook together and eat together at the big dining table. The location was great and within walking distance from the best downtown restaurants, shopping, and our wedding venue! There's a grocery store just 2 blocks away as well.

There are some drawbacks that you should consider - for us they weren't deal breakers but did affect our stay. First, the neighborhood has a lot of homeless folks. The Manse is attached to an active church and they seem to serve the homeless, so we had people asking us for food, money, and also dressing and sleeping in the tiny driveway leading to the parking area. The parking area is VERY tiny and any full-sized car is nearly impossible to maneuver in and out. As with most old homes, there is one main bathroom, upstairs, and one in the downstairs apartment. That as challenging for our family members with mobility issues. The beds were hit and miss - some were pretty uncomfortable.

All that said, we agreed we'd stay there again. There is nothing else like it. Our experience would have been very fragmented if we'd all been in hotel rooms or several rented condos. Instead we had nights sitting up late in the warm, inviting livingroom, talking and listening to our friend serenade us with guitar. We woke the the sounds of hymns from the church on Sunday morning - quite lovely. We chopped vegetables and ironed clothes and went for walks - the Hafner Manse allowed us to be a large family under one roof, a very special time for us all.
