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.


Warm, welcoming and delicious!!!!

I have often stayed at the Portland White House because the people who work there are so kind, so welcoming and just delightful!! There treats at night and scrumptious breakfasts add to a most delightful stay!


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.

Nice B&B in the East side of Portland, 20 minutes from downtown in bus. The house is very beautiful and well decorated and the rooms are comfortable. The breakfast was very good and the service very kind.


Peace and tranquility meets exceptional service

The While House is located in a beautiful neighbour but still close to everything. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the sitting room has a number of very interesting antiques. Nothing is a problem for the team, we arrived early and they couldn't have been more accommodating. The light rail is a short walk away, and our only regret is that we were able to stay only one night!


Love!

We love this place! We have stayed here many times and every time the staff is wonderful, the breakfast is outstanding and the rooms very comfortable. One of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed in.

Lovely B&B. A respite from the summer heat. The staff were very welcoming and made us feel that it was our quasi-home.


Elegant and professional!

4.4 on September 03, 2017

Beautiful building and grounds, attentive staff, exquisite breakfast! The weather was warm and there was no AC, but we were in the carriage house and opening windows kept the temperature quite nice; plus, we got to listen to the fountain. Location is quiet, and close to restaurants. Very professionally run B&B - an excellent experience!
