Come to find out it was called "Portland Saturday Market" and had all sorts of little vendors of crafts and other types of schlock. But they also had fun entertainers and a bunch of little food stands with delights from around the world (from pizza, BBQ, Mediterranean, all the way to Thai). Score…!! So we watched a few street performers, grabbed lunch, and then headed to ...

Try to get there at least 45 minutes before closing to see the house. You can walk the gardens at no charge and the garden is open longer hours. Details are on their web site.

We bought a few tacos for dinner and ate them on the main beach at Encinitas. We spent that night in the carpark at Poinsettia Village, where the Starbucks is. It was quite a loud spot and even worse when a leaf blower truck, came through the carpark at about 4am. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lion and the Rose Victorian B&B Inn Portland
One of the best...
... B & B's I've been fortunate enough to stay at. This was my 3rd or 4th visit to the Lion and the Rose. I've been staying there ever since it opened in the early 90's and the inn continues to be one of my favorites. And I have stayed at many B & B's over my many business trips throughout the country.
The innkeepers are great guys who make you feel very comfortable and welcome. Anyone traveling to the Portland area has lots of choices of inns and B & B's but this without a doubt is the finest.
Wedding Romance Victorian Style
After a carriage ride on the riverfront and a tour of downtown Portland, Oregon, our wedding day was complete as we retired for the evening in a "storybook" Victorian-era home. The proprieters were wonderful hosts. The ambiance during the day was serenely romantic as we took some wedding pictures in our room, "The Lavonna Room." Staying at the Lion and the Rose was my dream come true for my wedding. Thanks everyone! from the bottom of our hearts. Major and Mrs. Richard Farnsworth.
Perfect Overnight stay & location
We spent one lovely night at the B&B-- everything was clean & comfortable. The location is perfect for getting out and walking around the shops and nearby mall and plenty of restaurants to choose from. Breakfast was fabulous. The hosts were very kind and helpful. We would definately stay there again if we visit the area.
Everything about the Lion and the Rose was terrific. The hosts were friendly and helpful and didn't "hang out" as some do. The food was wonderful and the table settings were gorgeous. I'd recommend it to anyone.
A must stay when in Portland!
While we are new to B&B's - Steve and Dusty are incredible hosts. Their knowledge of their beautiful property and the surrounding area was fabulous! The room was out of this world....most people commented on the room in the diary about the feeling of love in the air...Well all I will say is it was magic! Clean and no amenity was missed... Then came Breakfast not being a morning person I was reluctant to get up but love the full breakfast spread...
Guys we will be back in December for that shopping weekend!
Pictures of this lovely old Victorian beauty do not do it justice. From the sidewalk to the corners of the inside one can see and feel it is in the hands of caring people. The owners Dusty and Steve are as amazing as the B&B they so obviously enjoy running. From Steve's delicious breakfasts to Dusty's late night conversations everything they do they do with heart. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and clean, (thank you Russ). Arriving back after a day of sightseeing and shopping the house welcomes you with it's warmth. There are snacks and drinks ready at all times during the day and night and the luxurious towels were a delight after showering in the period decorated bathroom. I recommend this lovely B&B to everyone. A stay at the Lion and the Rose will rejuvenate your spirit and send you home pampered and rested. We hope to make it back to Portland and the Lion and the Rose in the near future.
I rate this B&B EE for Extraordinary Experience
My first visit to the Lion & the Rose B&B was an extraordinary experience in every way; luxurious, comfortable, peaceful, and friendly.
Innkeepers, Dustin and Steve, have taken the B&B experience to the high 9s. I woke each morning to an impeccably prepared formal breakfast awash with style, class, and variety with each new day.
The Starina room was spotless, fabulously appointed, and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in while away from home.
I am sincerely looking forward to my second visit in September.
Lion and the Rose a real gem
I had the opportunity to stay for a few nights at Portland's Lion and the Rose B&B. It is everything I love about B&Bs; comfortable, charming, and not the usual hotel room. Traveling on business, I had unique requirements of arriving late and leaving early. Steve and Dusty were more than accommodating. They stayed up until 1 AM for my arrival, and when I left at 6AM, they were thoughtful enough to have made coffee, had some protein bars (which I love) available, and were awake to wish me goodbye.
I had another workmate of mine traveling with us, and since they were full, they went FAR out of their way to find another room in town for him, and then escorted us to that place.
Truly astounding service.
My daughter and I stayed at The Lion & The Rose as our home base while looking at colleges in the Portland area. We were very pleased with the entire experience. The inn itself is truly special, furnished with many excellent period pieces. This inn has great bones and anyone interested in architecture or not will enjoy the generous proportions of the rooms. The dining room has a very special ceiling with a nod to the Arts & Crafts movement immediately following the Victorian period. Buffet breakfast served there is special and we enjoyed meeting people from various places who all sat together and talked at the long, beautifully set table. The innkeepers, two wonderful people, are clearly well-suited to their role and take a personal interest in their guests. We would certainly visit The Lion & The Rose again. Many B&B's have uncomfortably soft beds but not so at this one! The Lion & The Rose is a lovely place in a special residential neighborhood with very close proximity to good restaurants, coffee and shops. The overall good feeling of the inn comes directly from the extraordinary care and keeping of the hosts, both for the inn and the guests.
Fantastic B & B - Lion & the Rose
We were welcomed to the city of Portand on our first visit by our fantastic stay at this great neighborhood location B & B. It is a charming old house which has been lovingly restored, in a neighborhood of beautiful old homes. The owners and staff couldn't have made us feel more welcomed and comfortable with the great service. The breakfasts were outstanding, especially the apple crepes and chocolate muffins. The beds were so comfortable in nice sized rooms. The gardens and landscaping were very charming. We look forward to going back again.
