Lovely stay

4.6 on February 25, 2018

This is a beautiful home in a neat neighborhood. It was a chilly day, but it was very cozy inside. It would be fun to stay in nice weather too because it's a great neighborhood to explore. Breakfast was delicious. Kim was very friendly and available when needed.


Christmas

The Portland White House is absolutely amazing! My husband is active duty and we were not in the Christmas spirit since we couldn't spend our Christmas with family but these gracious hosts turned that around for us. We could not have asked for a more welcoming and beautiful stay. The staff was just wonderful. To top it off, we had a gourmet breakfast at no charge each morning we were there. We have told all of our friends about the White House and would love to stay again!


Very Welcoming Bed and Breakfast

My husband and I stayed over the Christmas holiday, our second visit to PWH. We were very happy in the Coach House. The bed is comfortable,deep mattress, no problem for my husband's sensitive back. Cozy room with clean, modern bathroom - liked the shower. Breakfasts were superior with fresh fruit, different entree each morning, great coffee. The staff, including Myra and Kim, were totally welcoming and accommodating. Nice feature nearby is public transportation bus at the end of the block.


The best bed & breakfast

This is a gorgeous mansion in a lovely neighborhood. The rooms a beautiful, so many antiques everywhere. The breakfast is delicious and substantial. Maybe improve the coffee a bit. I admit to being a coffee snob, sorry.

GREAT Place!!!!

We enjoyed our stay at the Portland White House so much that we not only stayed here just the first night of our trip, but decided to end our trip to Oregon here as well. The rooms were beautiful, we absolutely enjoyed our conversations with everyone associated with the Ptld White House and the breakfasts were amazing - would love to have the recipes! Easy location and GORGEOUS neighborhood!


Another great stay at my favorite B&B!

I spent two nights in September at Portland's White House and it was lovely from the moment I arrived. My room was upgraded so I was in the Rose Room which was huge and beautiful, you must try it! The linens are nice, the toiletries are top notch, it's quiet, you get a wonderful breakfast to start your morning, the owners are great, and the girls helping with breakfast are very sweet. Everything is clean and well kept, it's a wonderful place to spend your down-time when you're visiting. I can't wait to go back again this month!

My husband and I spent 1 night at the White House at the end of our travel around Oregon. It's a beautiful property. We stayed in the Garden Room which had a lovely patio. The breakfast was filling and delicious. The service was gracious and attentive. I would definitely stay here again.
