What a great place!

4.8 on April 15, 2014

From the warm greeting to the cheerful goodbye and everything in between, this is world class accommodation. Outstanding in every way!

Wonderful Place to Stay

A great place to stay away from the bustle of downtown, but still convenient to everything. Wonderful breakfasts.

Perfect stay and perfect host!

First of all, I really appreciate when an owner upgrades you to a nicer room when possible. There have been too many times when I've stayed at an inn with only 2 of 5/6 rooms taken and not been upgraded! So, this stay started off the right way when we were upgraded to the lovely carriage house. The room was great, the bed super comfy, and everything was just so. The breakfast were outstanding, the neighborhood was fabulous, and we couldn't have had a better 2 nights.

Elegance and comfort in NE Portland

4.8 on March 21, 2014

Portland's White House offers visitors an elegant yet home-like setting in a residential neighborhood with shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. We are still marveling about the truly gourmet (and filling!) breakfasts served on antique china in the formal dining room! The guest rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated. The owner and the manager are very friendly and helpful and ensure that guests feel welcome and comfortable. We visit Portland quite often and plan to return to Portland's White House often.

Lovely B&B

We arrived to Myra's friendly greeting and a beautiful entry. The common areas were very inviting and comfortable. Our room was light and bright and spacious even with the king sized bed. Breakfast was amazing! The quiche was yummy and the fruit was delicious. In the evening, our walk around the quiet neighborhood was beautiful. We can't say anything bad about our stay! It was delightful!
