Title of my review says it all. We will definitely stay here again when in Portland.

Quaint old house.

I would recommend this B&B for a short overnight stay. Proprietor efficient and stern.

Breakfast issues

3.8 on August 18, 2015

This is a first class B&B ideally located. However, the breakfast starts late (8:30) and offers no cereal, fruit or pastry buffet to partake of before or after the cooked plate is served. Though the plates were creative, they lacked protein. I left the table still hungry each day..

Overall property was very nice. Morning breakfast was outstanding. Would suggest cutting a small section of privacy bushes so we can see the outstanding view of the Portland skyline. I hope the new owner continues to operate the property as a B & B. We would stay there again.

Great place to stay in Portland

Heron Haus is a comfortable place to stay and is in a good location. Close to the Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, Arboredum. Great dining options are just a nice walk away.

Could be one of the best in the United States

The Heron Haus has location, historic significance, a willing host and an outstanding overall good feel. But it could use a few tweeks to make it an even better experience. There is only one small refrigerator and a microwave in the first floor. It would be nice to not have to walk down from the second and third floor, especially in the evening. Also it would be nice to be provided some simple refreshments such as soft drinks,package snacks and fruit. Breakfast was very fancy but I wouldn't mind an option of simple tradition one with eggs, bacon or sausage and hashbrowns. I would highly recommend it now as the location in Portland has to be one of the best, it is close to public transportation and has onsite parking.

Relaxing place to stay! Private feel yet blocks from the city!

Loved our visit. We relaxed, soaked up the atmosphere, and loved meeting new people at breakfast. We are now hooked at staying at B & B's. Great value for area!! Would visit again!:)
