Sandes of Time Bed & Breakfast

16022 SE River Road , Portland, OR 97267 USA (Show map)


This delightful Bed & Breakfast is perched on a wooded knoll overlooking three acres of manicured grounds featuring gardens, ponds, a fountain and even a meandering brook. In the southeast area of Portland, you'll be 10 minutes from the city and perfectly situated to explore the historic outlying areas of Clackamas County (including Mt. Hood Territory). But why leave when the porch swings beckon and the thirteen fireplaces glow? Enjoy private viewings of your favorite movies on the 120" movie screen in the Theater room. This is a retreat of the modern Jane Austen’s dreams. Romantic and cozy. Smart and modern. The Wi-Fi is fast and the pace of life is slow. The Sandes of Time is a stately historic home with ties to Oregon history. Come and enjoy timing standing still, even if just for a little while. The past makes the present all the more special here.

Stayed here several weeks ago- what a treat! Convenient yet private; breakfast was over the top good; rooms were fabulous; watched a movie in theater room (I was in charge of remote); porches and grounds .. Something out of a pretty magazine. I would "highly" recommend a stay here if you have the opportunity! Terry and Al have found "their nitch"

Practically perfect in every way!

Al & Terry are the consummate host and hostess. They are sweet, unassuming and friendly. Al makes sure there is not a single weed on their large estate, and mows the lawn mostly by push mower and at a diagonal. Terry decorated their comfortable Victorian Country home in a style that would honor "Country Living" magazine. Together they serve a lovely little breakfast every morning. There is so much to do in the Portland area that we never quite had time to check out their movies in the theatre room. Oh well! That gives us an excuse for a return visit!

Next To Heaven

My husband Brian and I are so grateful to Al & Terry for making our vacation the closest to heaven we could possibly get here on earth. Tucked away on a street that does not give credit to what you will behold, is this amazing bed and breakfast that is owned and operated by two wonderful angels God has placed among our midst. There truly is no other way to describe these two beauiful hosts. From the very first day till the last we were treated like family. When we arrived we were greeted with such a warm gebuine welcome we felt we had met them before. The home is absolutely beautiful and so inviting that you feel like sitting and chatting like you were catching up on old times. We have stayed in many hotels but never any that could begin to compare to Sandes of Time Bed and Breakfast. Every room in the home is breath-taking. Al and Terry have paid so much attention to every detail of the property, inside and out. It's very obvious that they love what they do and they love their guest. The breakfast is gourmet and home cooked from scratch. I could eat breakfast all day. I'm a book collector and an advant reader and I enjoyed looking through Terry's antique collectibles. Words alone cannot express what you can only experience by spending some time there. I look foward to spending some time this summer with my husband at Sandes of Time with Al and Terry. Always, Brian & Tina Hankerson

The Hosts with the Most

My wife and I love to patronize Bed & Breakfasts about three times a year and have done this for nearly a decade. Al and Terry have created a gem here in Portland. They are the most gracious, jovial and likeable hosts we have ever met. The rooms exceeded our expectations, the downstairs movie theatre was a huge plus, and the meals outstanding. I can't say enough good things about Al & Terry. We will be back!

Great time at Sandes of Time

We had a wonderful 2 day stay at Sandes of Time B&B. We stay at B&Bs on a regular basis and have high standards. Sandes of Time met and exceeded our expectations. The grounds are beautiful!. It is a lovely setting to walk the grounds or sit on the porch with a glass of wine. The owners are super friendly and very attentive. We enjoyed a great breakfast. The room was tastefully decorated and very clean. We would definitely stay at this B&B again and can highly recommend it without any reservations. Eileen and Mike

A wonderful, comfortable B&B with delicious food and lovely hosts!

This place is great! The owners make you feel so comfortable and relaxed. I stayed here the night before a big exam (MCAT) and I'm so happy I did. I've been so very stressed lately and this place made me feel calm, collected, and relaxed. The decor and vibe feels like a vacation at grandma's home, and the breakfast is just as fresh and delicious as expected. The property is gorgeous with nice short walking paths and a beautiful patio for relaxing. Terry and Al, the owners, treat this place as their home so their guests feel at home. They are so very friendly and nice people. There are board games, books, and movies for the kids and a bar, movies, and a nice relaxing for the adults. Oh, and the movie room is amazing! Great surround sound with a huge projector screen, comfy seats with warm blankets, and fresh popcorn! This B&B is so much better than the brand name hotel where I almost stayed. It is so comforting and personal. I can't wait to come back. I hope you have a great time here!

Back a few years ago we stayed in this marvelous B&B. We happened to be the first people to stay here. Like so many of the guests, we concur that it is a very beautiful spot and we certainly will stay here again if we visit Portland again. Paul and Marlene DeVries

My husband and I are from Providence, Rhode Island. We almost always stay at B&B's and we have traveled all over the country. The Sands of Time Bed and Breakfast is the best place we have ever stayed. We spent three nights there and everything was phenomenal!! I can not say enough about the amazing job Terry and Al have done with this beautiful place. Tammy O Providence, RI

We stayed in the Spring Garden room which was very comfortable with a view of the nicely landscaped grounds. This B&B gets top ratings from us after staying in 4 B&B's while touring WA and OR, coming from the East Coast. It is clean and newly renovated. Terry and Al were great hosts and fun to talk to. The breakfasts were delicious and nicely presented to us outside on the porch. We very much enjoyed our 2 nights there while attending a nearby wedding.
