Awesome food!

4.2 on November 25, 2014

While we weren't overly impressed with the room - it was quite small and somewhat overheated - we found the White House to be a good value, and we enjoyed two very excellent breakfasts. They were definitely the highlight of our stay here.

Phenomenally Beautiful B&B, Opulent and Ornate

We really enjoyed our stay here, it's an incredible piece or Portland history turned into an amazing Bed and Breakfast! Lanning and Myra were both extremely friendly, both excellent cooks too, the food was excellent. The other staff were also courteous and professional, exactly the type of people you would hope to meet at a place like this. If you like antiques, the collection on display all throughout the mansion is amazing. There is plently of room to have guests over too, the main floor living room/sitting room area is tastefully decorated with antiques and antique furniture. It's also in a quiet high end neighborhood of Portland but is still only 5-15 minutes from everything. Overall we loved this place and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Our wedding at the White House

5 on November 09, 2014

We selected the Portland White House for our wedding. The setting is lush and intimate. We talked to the owner, Lanning Blanks, over iced tea on a hot summer day. He is the epitome of the gracious southern host. The White House was the first place we visited and there was no reason to look elsewhere -- it has everything. The setting is lovely, the staff is exceptional and the food is to die for. We knew that they would be good and that we could turn everything over to them without a worry, but it went way beyond that. They have done this enough before that they made sure that we were the first one through the food line so that we could get a few bites in before the guests came in. They also took special care of one of our guests who had difficulty walking. It was a treat the next day to end our wedding with family as overnight guests and with everyone enjoying fresh fruit, muffins and Crab Benedict for breakfast. We've traveled all around the world and stayed at some fabulous hotels and locations, none is better then this. We are lucky to live in the Northwest and to have this fine place in our city.

Quiet Homey Atmosphere

I chose Portland's White House because it was within walking distance of a workshop I was attending for 3 days. It had received good reviews, but still wasn't quite sure what to expect since this was my first stay at a B and B. One reviewer said it was elegant without being pretentious and I think that sums it up completely: Beautifully decorated, stately and quiet. My room was clean and comfy, the breakfasts were outstanding and the staff was friendly. It was a real treat and I would definitely stay there again!

Lovely and convenient in NE Portland

4.8 on November 08, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed our recent 2 night stay at the White House. We appreciated the friendly hospitality, attention to detail and tasty breakfasts. The location was convenient for the plan to attend a Trailblazers game at Moda Center and also to drive out for a day trip along the Columbia River. However, it was also not far to drive in to downtown Portland. We would gladly book a room again at the White House for future Portland visits.

Wonderful time

we wear greeted when we arrived by a very warm and friendly person who gave us a tour of this beautiful place. Our room was in the coach house. It was small, but elegant. Two large warm cookies were waiting for us, as were two lovely pieces of chocolate. Everything was comfortable and nicely done. We loved our stay and will be back.

Wonderful place

Everything about this stay was fantastic! The inn is beautiful, bed luxuriant, breakfast tasty (ditto for the fresh oatmeal butterscotch cookie that greets you when you arrive), and innkeepers wonderfully friendly.


3.8 on November 01, 2014

The room, grounds and breakfast were very nice. The room could do with cleaning in the corners. The bathroom was also nice. The bed was very tall and difficult to get into and out of and shook when moving. The mattress was not comfortable. We liked the cookies each day.

I love this place!

Our recent stay at Portland's White House was just wonderful. It is located in the historic district of Irvington so you can get up and walk around the delightful neighborhood enjoying the wonderful architecture. The rooms are very nice and cozy. They give you great cookies and chocolates. We could open our windows to the wonderful cool air outside. It becomes an experience like you are at home. During all of our visits the other guests seem nice and interesting. I just love this place and will stay there whenever possible. One last advantage - it is very close to airport (15 minute ride) so it served as a great place to stay before we left the next morning. Many good restaurants are nearby - consider OX.
