Great place to stay

4.0 on July 03, 2014

First time at this B and B. Great room. Quiet safe neighbourhood close to SE Division. Stayed in the attic suite. Bed is really firm (not hard). There is a claw tub with hand shower- not the best for washing long hair but totally adequate. Funky art decor. Holly the owner made excellent breakfasts and was gracious, knowledgeable and friendly. Along with lots of guide books and info, she even provided us with maps for a day trip. Lovely garden and fresh produce from it! Fridge available too.

Glasswing Guest House is Great!

My sister and I overnighted in the upstairs suite during our stay in Portland for several days recently. The rooms were large enough to afford privacy and the bathroom was lovely with great lighting and a beautiful large tub. Each day the breakfasts were outstanding and the setting lovely. The garden was so peaceful. Holly was a great host and we'd recommend Glasswing Guest House highly.

Holly made our experience outstanding

4.4 on July 13, 2013

We stayed in the upper suite, which is a great private retreat: large bedroom, beautiful bathroom, and a cozy leaving room with couch and TV. Holly made our stay the best. We felt at home, with the difference that every morning we had a great breakfast! Holly is an expert in cooking eggs, so if you stay here make sure not to miss the eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce and the coddled eggs. She also invited us to join a party to inaugurate her new deck: this was a very pleasant surprise, which we enjoyed a lot. We would definitely stay here again if we will have another chance to come back to Portland.

A wonderful experience!

Holly is the perfect host: guinuinely friendly, a great cook and had maps of the city and recommendations on things to do or places to eat. She even went so far as to make me a cake when she found out is was my birthday and made the best Eggs Benedict for breakfast. The upstairs room is a special romantic hide-a-way including a claw footed tub, wine glasses, robes and bubble bath. The room also has a sitting area and TV plus the bed area. Think more of a suite than a room. You could stay 'in' all day if you wanted to do so. We hope to go back soon.

One of the nicest places to stay

I stayed with Holly back in May (and I have been meaning to write this ever since!) and it was just the nicest place to stay. Not only was the room high quality and the bed very comfortable, Holly is a great host! I ate breakfast with the other people staying one morning and the food was fantastic. This is definitely a place to stay!
