We have stay at Lion and the Rose regularly. We would not even consider staying anywhere else in the Portland area.

Better than a classic!

My wife and I spent two great nights at this B&B. It was splendid on all fronts. The decor was just perfect enough to make you feel that you had just been thrust back into the 19th century. We will try to plan another visit to this wonderful inn.

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.

This is a lovely B&B. Very clean, delicious food and gracious hostess. Quiet area and close to the center of town.

Exceeded our expectations in every way

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.

Gorgeous home in Portland welcomes you.

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.

Beautifully kept.

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

Awesome Experience

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.
