Montavilla – a syllabic abbreviation of “Mt. Tabor Villa” – is a neighborhood in the Northeast and Southeast sections of Portland dating back almost 110 years.
Located just East of Mt. Tabor, Montavilla is also bound by I-84 and 205. It’s just minutes from the Hawthorne District, though the growing strip of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, and theaters along SE Stark is gaining a hip reputation of its own. Surrounding the charming commercial district is a large residential neighborhood of neat, modest houses and well-kept yards. This close-knit neighborhood has one of the best community support systems in town and boasts one of Portland’s best farmer’s markets on Sundays throughout the Summer.
Montavilla is one of the remaining few affordable neighborhoods west of 82nd with all of the charm and excitement of an inner Eastside neighborhood, and it’s only going to get better!
