The year was 1900, and a young, Wisconsin-born George Besaw Jr. had just arrived in Portland. Though he quickly found himself a job in Slabtown, at the Eastern Lumber Company, it wasn’t long before he set his sights on a new line of work—hospitality.
Enjoy boutique living at its finest—from approachability and charm to parking, fresh air, and space for gathering. Home is in the details.

An endearing enclave of historic architecture, NW 23rd and Slabtown is a hub of all that is Portland, old and new. Here, sidewalks separate old elms from lines of boutique storefronts, neighborhood theaters, and pubs. Alphabet District charm meets the rich nostalgia of Slabtown, and nights and weekends bustle with energy just a few blocks away from Forest Park trails.
Nearby Streetcar and Trimet stops offer easy alternative transit, but know that from here, your bike will get you downtown in minutes. Cafes and restaurants beckon, and New Seasons offers high quality ingredients for home-cooked meal. Eclectic, fashionable, established, and equipped—it’s the ideal setting for any story.
The George Besaw is as endearing as the neighborhood and as storied as you are—just like home should be. We can’t wait for you two to meet.
