Perfect Place To Stay When Flying Into Portland, Oregon

5 on October 30, 2016

My husband and I stayed at the Cornerstone B&B the first and last nights of our vacation to Oregon. We were exploring the entire state and part of Northern California, that is why we didn't stay the entire week. It was the perfect place to stay, close enough to Portland to catch our flights and explore Downtown Portland (The Chinese Garden, Japanese Garden, Rose Garden and theGrotto) but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. Harold and Margarett were so wonderful treating us more like family instead of just paying guests. I spent most of my offtime sitting in the rocker on the back porch watching the birds and hummingbirds, and of course, eating a delicious breakfast in the dining room gazing out at those same birds. We really enjoyed our conversations with them at breakfast, they gave us lots of helpful travel information. I am a gardener, so I also enjoyed walking the grounds admiring the property. We were there during peak Fall Color. So gorgeous and peaceful. We will definately go back again next time we visit Oregon.


Oregon stay

4.0 on September 23, 2016

Beautiful home in a convenient area. Owners very helpful. Room nice, good size, but no comfortable reading chairs. Breakfast served at 8:30 am, which is earlier than we like, but the food was very good. When we go back to the area, we might look at other options, but we would go back again.

Excellent breakfast, rooms, conversation, in a quiet semi-rural location. The rooms have both an inside and outside entrance for extra privacy. The dining room has a view of a wooded area filled with a variety of birds attracted by seeds, nuts and water set out by the Cornerstone proprietors. They appear as if they are trained birds. What a delight to observe! Our favorite B & B!


Didn't want to leave!

Harold and Margaret are wonderful hosts. They will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. They prepare wonderful breakfasts that keep you going well after noon. The home is so beautiful and comfortable. Will we go back, you bet.


August stay at Cornerstone B & B

4.8 on August 17, 2016

Harold & Margaret are both very nice & helpful. They served delicious breakfast each morning at 8:30. We enjoyed that Harold says a breakfast prayer, since you are sharing their living quarters. It's a very large home & property. You need to go out for all other meals. It's close to many restaurants & a mall. We had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory one night. The property is beautiful, the B & B is large, on one level & very clean. Our room was beautiful & opened on to the large back covered deck. We would sit in the rocking chairs & read, along with watch the squirrels & birds eat from the porch feeders that Harold keeps well supplied! They had soft instrumental music playing. It's a very nice & relaxing place to stay. We would highly recommend it, but it might be hard to return home!


Another Great Stay at Cornerstone!

This was our fourth stay at Cornerstone and we weren't disappointed. As always Margaret and Harold were wonderful hosts, the breakfasts were delicious and included "just the right amount of food" with many side choices, and the room was clean and comfortable. We love the quiet and beautiful setting and it is convenient to our travels. Sue and Earl

Margaret and Harold are wonderful, caring hosts. We had a lovely stay and wish we would have been able to stay longer to enjoy their hospitality.


Very nice stay

5 on July 20, 2016

We wish we had time to stay longer than one night. We didn't have a chance to enjoy the common rooms, which are lovely. The group breakfast was a lot of fun, we met some very interesting people along with our hosts, who shared breakfast with us, which was nice. The rooms are lovely and comfortable and well thought out including separate outside entrances to each room.


My favorite B&B

This is our second stay at Cornerstone and it was just as good as I remembered it. It is our sanctuary in a world of insanity. Harold and Margaret are the nicest people you could meet. They treat us like family. The other couples there were so much fun to talk with. Margaret is a fantastic cook and she caters to your taste. This will not be the last time we stay there. If you like birds, Harold feeds the birds every morning. It is so nice to sit and watch the birds from the wrap around deck, or from the dining room window.
