The Best Bed and Breakfast in Portland!

5 on January 25, 2017

We rented the facility for our wedding and it was the MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Our entire family stayed over night. The rooms and common areas are stunning, welcoming and comfortable. The Staff was incredible. They thought of everything! They were very responsive, accommodating and extremely helpful. The quality and presentation of the food was fantastic! We couldn't have been more pleased with the property and the staff. Many of our guests commented on what a wonderful wedding it was and how smoothly everything moved along. I highly recommend The Portland Whitehouse for any events or a weekend get away.


Nice home

Overall this was a nice place to stay - very quiet and the bed were really comfortable. The main foyer had a little bit of an odor that took me a while to get used too. Felt really weird in the bathroom because there was only lace curtains covering the windows - no blind or shutter. I also would love to see better light in the bathroom- it was a harsh cold light. I stay here again but would chose a different room next time. I loved the character of the home


Lovely place to stay!

The Portland White House is absolutely gorgeous. My husband and I had a night away from our young kids and it was so much fun! The furniture and interior decorations throughout the house are breathtaking. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was beyond my expectations. It was delicious! Great friendly staff as well! I have wanted to stay here for years and I was not at all disappointed with our stay. I would strongly recommend the Portland White House to others.


Wonderful Step Back in Time

4.8 on December 11, 2016

Our four nights at The White House were peaceful and so enjoyable. From the friendly staff and beautiful antiques to the absolutely delicious breakfasts and in-room cookies each night (!), our stay in Portland was made by this B&B. Only slight annoyance was slow internet (hence, 4 stars for Service, not 5). But if one really wanted to go back in time and enjoy reading not web surfing, it was perfect!

Garden Room

We loved our stay in Portland's White House; it is a beautifully appointed, elegant property in an historic neighborhood. We appreciated the free upgrade to the Garden Room, the complimentary chocolates and cookies, and the delicious breakfast cooked by Lanning. It did get a bit hot in our room overnight (the radiator heater was difficult to turn off completely). We had a wonderful time!


Dream Getaway in Portland

Had a wonderful stay at Portland's White House. The bed was comfortable, room was very nicely furnished, complete with balcony and even a chandelier in the bathroom! Myra and the staff were very friendly and helpful, made you feel right at home. Quite possibly the best chocolate butterscotch chip cookies ever! Breakfasts were served at the grand dining table (that seats 18). Husband enjoyed the grand piano in the parlor. Hope to return again.

Fabulous accommodations, service, and food. We've stayed here three times and it's been an excellent experience each time. Lanning and his staff are a pleasure.


Inviting, quaint and comfortable!

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time staying here, and will definitely be back. The Canopy Room we stayed in was great! Linens, towels, robes, etc. were clean and everything worked just fine. Everything seems well insulated, so despite other people staying, noise never seemed an issue. The house as a whole is amazingly quaint, with very well-kept and consistent decor that really makes the whole experience better. It is old-fashioned, yes, but that gives it so much more character and depth. Food was fantastic, and the whole inviting and community feel of morning's breakfast coupled with friendly service was really fun! Like I said, will definitely be back. Might be fun to stay in other rooms just for the different experience, too. Highly recommend!


Outstanding...no, Extraordinary!
