I was at the Portland White House for only one night, but I wish it could have been more! (I did get a chance to survey the owner's collections of porcelains and other interesting art objects.) Teresa was very helpful, and even provided cookies for my grandchildren as I was leaving. All in all, I had a very nice visit.

My husband and I got a babysitter and stayed here for a night as a get-away treat. Everything was fabulous. Easy to book, photos true to the room, lovely cookies, chocolates and wine available in our room and a beautiful, beautiful home. We got a courtesy call to let us know how to get into the house if the inn keeper was away and our envelope was right there. All so easy. We got an excellent recommendation for dinner that night and enjoyed being so close to some great neighborhoods to just roam around and enjoy. Breakfast was wonderful and just the right amount. I always love staying in B&Bs that give you an opportunity to sit and talk to other travelers with great stories and recommendations. The large breakfast table leant itself to exactly this scenario. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends.

An históric and opulent house; great garden patios and conservatory, a quiet neighbourhood within easy reach of everything. The food and cooking there outstanding (Sean and Teresa, thank you). The review numbers here are strictly about the room being a bit bound by the historicness of the house. One or two of them could be called 'cozy' in size. Beds enormously high, too high. Breakfast around a single table with everyone is not my favourite choice but the table is big enough it seems to allow for quests to sit quietly away at one end if that is the preference if your timing in the morning works out. All in all though, would go back.

I was lucky enough to be part of a dinner party event at the White House and chose to stay 2 nights in addition to the party. The house itself is beautiful, the meals wonderfully prepared with local ingredients. The staff went out of their way to be attentive to every need. The location is perfect in a quiet neighborhood but handy to bus and rail service so if you don't have a car it's still possible to enjoy this site. I look forward to visiting again.

When we arrived, Maira ushered us in, gave us a quick tour of the house and made sure we had everything we would need for our stay...of course, the fresh baked cookies other reviewers have raved about were delicious. We stayed in the Baron's room; the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and I appreciated the windows on two walls in order to get a cross-breeze. This is an old heritage building. If you are used to modern amenities, this may not be your choice of stay. But, if you want gracious, attentive service, a delicious breakfast, and an enjoyable visit with the lovely Maira & Theresa, then I highly recommend a stay. One suggestion for the owner: write or acquire a book/pamphlet about the history of the home & the area.
