Excellent location - 5-min walk to NW shops and cafes, but in a quiet residential neighborhood. Very cosy, clean, and comfortable with 2 dining rooms and sitting areas. Free parking outside in the courtyard. We stayed in the Rogue and Rose rooms on the 2nd floor - both were lovely with private bathrooms and sitting areas. Everything was clean and well thought-out. Breakfast was always fresh and delicious. Tea always available, and port and cookies are served in the afternoon. Pam was a great host - friendly and eager to help guests. I think there are 6 rooms in total, so you get to meet other travelers. Overall an excellent place to stay - we highly recommend it and hope to return soon!

The out-of-the-ordinary breakfasts at Heron Haus were superb! And the fresh cookies and liquor sample in the evening made it a nice place to come home to.

An excellent, well-run B and B. Friendly and welcoming. Beautiful old estate, nicely furnished without all the silly ruffles that afflict so many American B and B's. Room immaculate and very comfortable, like home. Quiet and restful among the trees and high above the city traffic. Lots of reading material in books and pamphlets that explain every aspect of Oregon living and touring. A library full of books one wanted to stay and read. Breakfast was exemplary. Original interpretations of classic egg dishes. Coffee and tea available all day long. Port and cookies set out in the evening. Easy parking. We were impressed and would gladly stay at Heron Haus again. Grateful guests, BJ and EP

I am a solo, non-driving, traveler visiting from NYC and I found Heron Haus to be an excellent place to stay in Portland. The room (Willamette) was very comfortable and quiet, and had a nice alcove area for reading/thinking/napping. I also liked the sun room on the main floor overlooking a planted yard area as a place to enjoy coffee while perusing The Oregonian. The breakfasts were creative and hearty, and the conversations with the other guests made the experience interesting and informative. It was easy for me to go just about anywhere I wanted to go in Portland by using the NS streetcar and the 15 bus that stop a few blocks down the hill, or by walking. My stay at Heron Haus was very relaxing and I would like to stay there again. Kevin Anterline

My husband and I recently stayed at this B&B and we had an amazing experience! This was our first B&B and we are hooked! The breakfast was devine, atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the place was charming! Coral was a wonderful host and she created a lovely atmosphere! We loved it!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights with Heron House and would certainly stay there again. The bed was extremely comfortable, our room (one of the larger ones) was so pleasant with two couches for sitting, the interim innkeeper was friendly, helpful and willing to spend time with guests just getting to know them a bit better. The breakfasts were delightful and the area couldn't be beat! You'll enjoy your stay there. The only reason for the 4 stars under cleanliness was that the shower was badly in need of repair with broken tiles .

We spent two nights in the Mt. Hood room, which was beautiful and spacious, and the staff, especially Coral, was very friendly and hospitable. The breakfasts were very nice and the location very convenient to the many attractions close by. A great stay! We will be back for sure.

We flew to Portland to visit our son and daughter-in-law. We chose Heron Haus partly because it is less than a mile from their apartment. The location turned out to be absolutely perfect: we left the car there and walked nearly everywhere. Our room was charming and comfortable with nice views. Pam and Carl made us feel welcome, we enjoyed the company of the other guests at breakfast, and the imaginative breakfasts tasted wonderful. We look forward to visiting again!

Heron Haus is a comfortable, large stately home in a fabulous location in Norhwest Porland close to everythng. Breakfasts were quite good. Pam, the owner, went out of her way to provide a pleasant stay. The B&B experience of meeting people from all over was lovely. As in all older, multi-story homes, there are stairs, something to take into consideration, but not a problem for us. Fantastic Portland, with its interesting sights, incomperable restaurants, and natural beauty is at your feet when you stay at Heron Haus.
