Five star breakfast every morning. Very clean rooms. Convenient location and very close to restaurants and shops.

Great place in Portland!

Host is friendly and helpful;the price is expensive, but not out of line with what you pay for parking and non-included breakfast and fees galore at a standard hotel. The breakfast was lovely though the timing is a little strict, so beware if you're a late riser. The location is great; very short walk to excellent food and shopping.

Everything's Nice

Upon arrival, the only negative concerning the property became evident: the driveway was made during another era! However, after successful navigation to the lot (also too small to hold all the cars) and entry into the house, we were pleasantly greeted with plenty of clean space, both in our room and in the common areas. The location was also a plus. The amenities were sufficient...the water hot if you wanted it that way, the lighting also sufficient. Very nice sitting rooms, both in private and public spaces.NOTHING to complain about, at all!

Lovely & peaceful getaway...

Heron Haus is a charming & immaculate 100+ year old home in a quiet & beautiful neighborhood. The room was fantastic, the breakfasts were wonderful, and our host Pam could not have been more hospitable or helpful. Her restaurant picks and other suggestions were SPOT ON. And it's also worth knowing that this is in a great neighborhood for walking, with easy access to great eating & shopping :)

Location, Comfort, and Ambiance

We came for a six day stay over the New Year. Perhaps because we had no spectic plans beyond NYE and just rolled with the weather (freezing winds, then unexpected snow, then ice that had us virtually stranded!) it was a great trip. Not least because we were in the best possible location and fueled with a great and varying breakfast each day. Pam was tremendous and though mostly hovering in the background, Carl was friendly and warm. Cannot recommend it enough.

Very nice and peaceful

We really enjoyed the Heron Haus's proximity to the downtown Portland, OR area. We never had a hard time with any Uber or cab services locating us for pick up. It was always easy for us to find our way back. The Mt. Hood room was wonderful. Great views and the décor was nice. We really enjoyed the gas fireplace and sitting area within the room. Breakfast was great and filling. We have visited lots of B&Bs along the west coast. The Heron Haus is definitely a favorite and we will return for another stay.

Perfect Getaway Location

My husband and I had our honeymoon at the Heron Haus. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and accomodating the bed and breakfast was. Pam was very cordial and pleasant. The breakfast was fantastic. I never thought I would enjoy bread pudding so much! The location was supreme, within walking distance of many restuarants and shops, but not too much in the hub-bub or Portland so it still felt like a getaway.

October stay
