What a great place to stay. Close to everything. Wonderful room and bed, great breakfast and snacks available during the evening. These folks thought of everything, maps of the area, suggestions of things to do and see. Recommendations of local restaurant's etc. If you looking to stay in Portland you will not go wrong staying here.

We were two sisters traveling to Portland for a relaxing summer getaway in the beautiful Northwest. We looked into a variety of accommodations, but after speaking on multiple occasions to the innkeepers at The Lion and the Rose, it was an easy decision to pick this beautiful Portland gem, which is nestled in a lovely historic neighborhood, just a stone's throw from Downtown. Traveling from the Inn to wherever we needed to go was a breeze with the easily accessible public transportation. Even before we made our decision to stay, the innkeepers were generous and helpful in providing guidance and information. This was just the beginning. Once we arrived, Dusty and Steve were there to greet us warmly, making us instantly feel like we had reached our home away from home. The inn was elegant yet cozy, with every amenity one would need. Once you've experienced the impossibly soft sheets, the elaborate breakfasts, the fresh-baked cookies, and the surrounding beauty viewed from the comfort of their porch swing, you may never want to leave. We've stayed in numerous B&B's, but what truly distinguished The Lion and the Rose was its owners. Their thoughtful, kind, and generous spirits remains our fondest memory of a wonderful vacation.

We felt like we were among friends from the minute we stepped into the house. Everything was perfect, the place is lovely, the food was great, the innkeepers were friendly. I am a very fussy traveler and the Lion and the Rose was perfect in every way.

We had great stay in this lovely home. The Victorian Apartment affords all the comforts of home and was perfect for our family of four. We were there for a full week and had everything we needed. Our hosts were generous and friendly and full of useful information about Portland and the surrounding area. I look forward to a return visit to the Lion and Rose.

Everything a B&B should be. Well maintained by people who clearly love it. Friendly people, both staff and guests. The neighborhood is also quite lovely.

What a wonderful place to stay - we had such a wonderful time; the food was great and so was the service. This place is located in a great area to walk to shops, restaurants and bars - you won't be disappointed !

I have stayed at this B&B twice and have reservations for this April. I stayed in the Turret room the first time and stayed in the Victorian apartment over christmas. Both were extremely pleasant and every detail was attended to. The apartment was so wonderful that I decided right away to plan a trip with my sister. The staff and owners are very pleasant and help with any need you have. Though I am a very picky eater I did try the breakfast on my 1st stay. They and a nice spread and had no problem cooking me up something I would like. Overall would recommend this B&B in a heart beat and actually have to my friends and coworkers.

We only spent one night and wished we had time for more. Beautiful, old house with scrumptious breakfast.

A beautiful place to stay, great attention to detail, fascinating furniture and objects all around... Hosts are very welcoming, ready to talk about the house and the city, and breakfast was superb. Really enjoyed the chance to mingle with other guests and hosts...that's why we choose B&B's and not impersonal hotels... A find!

Absolutely beautiful Bed & Breakfast! It was much bigger than expected, and really felt like staying in an old Victorian home. The innkeepers and all the staff were very friendly and informative. We would definitely stay there again!

This B & B is lovely but not the place for a romantic get away. The innkeepers are nice but their schedule is inflexible. There is only one time for breakfast: 8:30 (or 9:00 on weekends). If you want to go out for weekend entertainment, there is no chance of sleeping in if you want to eat. Check out is 11:00 which is simply too early and unexpected. Be prepared to sit together with everyone else at the inn for breakfast whether you feel like be conversational or not.

While we orient to a single-seating at 8:30am Monday - Thrusday morning, and 9am on Sudnays, we also tell guests that we can offer a full breakfast a half-hour earlier, a more limited breakfast an hour earlier, and "to go" items before that. Also, if guests wish to come down 30 - 45 mintues later that is also fine. We also offer check-out as late as Noon. Mostly we need time time make up the room for the next check-in.

We loved the Lion and the Rose. Everything was beautifully furnished and decorated, the rooms were large and comfortable, all amenities, the food wonderful, but for us the best part was breakfast. All guests meet in the dining room at 8:30 (9 on Sunday) and eat together at one large table. We heard, and told, great stories, shared sightseeing suggestions, and got to know each other. Steve (innkeeper) joined us when he could. We will certainly go back again.

Whilst this may not be the best ‘value’ in town it surely is the nicest. The owners are two of the kindest B&B owners I’ve ever met. Their home is stunningly beautiful. They make you feel like you are welcome in their home without feeling overbearing or that you are imposing. The food was simply magnificent. The regional material they make available, which includes a 7 minute Power Point presentation on the sights around Portland (if you want to watch it) is fantastic. They have perfect maps (which they designed themselves), great suggestions and are available for questions at all times of the day and evening. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants or a quick drive to any of the local attractions. I would definitely stay at this B&B again though I would recommend staying on one of the upper floors. The other visitors sometimes do not realize that there are guest rooms right off the parlor and tend to talk too loudly in the early morning. The owners are masters of detail. They had non-scented soaps and my coffee was ready for me in the morning exactly like I like it.

My daughter and I stayed just one night at the Lion and Rose and we were very pleased. It was one of the best nights we had slept on our trip. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful. They also provide you with maps and detailed information about Portland and major sites not to miss. We will definately return!

The service was beyond any I have ever experienced at a B & B. The rooms are beautiful, the food divine and plentiful. Free snacks and drinks available all day. No stone unturned in restoration and service. Got a historical tour of the house from the owners. My best B & B experience to date.

Our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and it was the most enjoyable stay I've had in my life! I hated to leave! The attention given by the staff and the way everyone was made to feel like they were in their own home was extra special! Truly an expereince that will never be forgotten!!
