    Historical Traveler Reviews Portland's White House

    Warm & Inviting

    from

    Lanning is a wonderful host and his home is beautiful. The rooms are wonderful and the breakfast was awesome. We will definately be returning to this B&B soon.

    Gracious 'Fun' B & B

    from

    Lanning, the owner, greeted us at the door with a big 'Welcome.' He ushered us into 'one of his homes' - a cream-colored 'White house' in a lovely old Portland OR neighborhood. Built by a lumber-baron, it's been restored to its original grandeur. Breakfasts were huge and delicious - as were the beds! Treated like family, I even got the 'family' recipe for Lanning's crystallized ginger scones. This B & B will be on our future Portland itineraries - if we can get in!

    Thanks for a great weekend!

    from

    I was one of the privileged guests attending the luxurious overnight surprise birthday party at your beautiful B & B and wanted to pass along what a great job your staff provided. All the details, on down to the warm chocolate chip cookies upon check-in were attended to.

    The beautifully set dinner table with its well-polished silver and china lent itself to the formal clad guests who enjoyed a delectable dinner. The full breakfast on Sunday morning was complete with the fresh-squeezed juices.

    The beautiful period furnishings along with a comfortable setting make this an outstanding venue for an intimate weekend get-a-way or a special event. My husband and I will definitely be returning the Portland's White House Bed & Breakfast.

    Thank you.

    One of a Kind!

    Be prepared to get spoiled rotten at this beautiful Greek revival. Everything about this place is decadent, from the breakfast to the big beds to the bath amentities. Perfect for a couples' romantic weekend getaway or an elegant on-site wedding celebration. Modern conveniences include wireless internet access and flat-screen TVs.

    Portland's White House has amazing beds!

    from

    We stayed at Portland's White House for a wedding, which was held in the B&B's lovely courtyard. We were in the Balcony Room, and my husband and I both slept better than we ever have before--the bed was so comfortable, we could have slept all day, if the beautiful setting in a quiet neighborhood hadn't tempted us to start our days. We actually emailed Lanning to ask what his secret was, trying to recreate the feeling in our own house!

    The White House was a perfect combination of B&B and inn: it was intimate, but not TOO intimate. There were homey, common areas to relax, but you didn't feel like you were sitting right in someone's private living room.

    The breakfast was delicious: gourmet food, served elegantly, but not too exotic or snooty!

    We would absolutely choose the White House on a future trip to Portland. It's an excellent choice if you'd like to stay someplace that feels luxurious but is actually cheaper than a lot of hotels where the rooms are boxy and drab.

    Loved it!

    from

    The owners truly take care of their guests here. I recently was married and filled the bnb with family from all over. Very high maintenance. I was worried that I would have to devote all my time to pleasing everyone. The owners took this care away from me! They are wonderful to work with, the rooms are amazing, and the food even better. I really felt like it was my home when I was leaving...

    Portland's finest!

    from

    Portland's White House Bed and Breakfast is clearly the destination of choice when seeking lodging accommodations in the Portland area. Of the dozens of inns we've visited over the years, Portland's White House sets the standard with outstanding food, pleasant ambiance and gracious hospitality. Lanning and Steve and their conscientious staff leave nothing to chance in caring for their guests. We have stayed at Portland's White House numerous times over the past nine years for both business and pleasure and have been pleased with the consistent high quality of service and excellence. We very strongly recommend this exceptional inn and assure your stay will be enjoyable and rewarding.

    The 'Quintessential' Bed & Breakfast

    from

    My husband and I just returned home from a lovely trip to Portland and Eugene. We are innkeepers and find it sometimes hard to travel to other properties because as you know "there's no place like home" but we were so thrilled with the Portland's Whitehouse. It's everything you would want from a B & B and so much more. First of all, the greeting you get makes you feel like you are old (and very much missed) friends of the family. You might even get a hug if you smile nicely. Then there's the house, what a house it is, really a mansion. All I can say is WOW! I've never seen so much art and collectibles in a B&B before and you can touch most of them. There is a true "casual elegance" feel about the place, you are welcome to go into the living room (or parlor) and relax, put your feet up, really make yourself at home. Our room the Rose Room was perfect. Flat screen TV,comfy bed, lovely bathroom, cookies each day, chocolates for the evening. You can't want for anything. Then comes the morning, peeking in at you from all the glorious windows, fresh breeze and birds chirping. Once your eyes open, you smell breakfast, and ah. . . what a breakfast. The two mornings we were there we had bread pudding french toast and then crab cakes eggs benedict with the best potatoe cakes I've ever had! Thanks Justin! The entire staff went out of their way to make each guest feel welcome and special. Everymorning there was fresh fruit, a scone or muffin, bacon, fresh juice and coffee or cappuccino. It was fabulous! The location couldn't be better and we took a morning walk each day and enjoyed seeing some of the beautiful homes surrounding the White House. If you love traditional B&B's where hospitality comes first, you will love this place, we sure do! The owners, Lanning and Steve are two of the warmest and friendliest hosts we've ever met, and we've met a bunch!

    Tasteful and Tasty B&B in Northeast Portland

    from

    We just had a 4-night stay at Portland's White House in a pretty, quiet neighborhood in northeast Portland, Oregon. The friendly owners are rightly proud of the restoration they've done on the place. They're very helpful and fun. There are 2 patios outside and a library and a livingroom inside for meeting or hanging out. We stayed in the Rose Room with its comfy king-size bed. There were lots of towels, good-quality soaps and lotions, 2 bathrobes and 2 great cookies provided. And 2 great chocolates at bedtime. The breakfasts were huge and delicious. Each morning we had juice, tea or coffee, a scone or muffin, a big bowl of fruit, bacon or sausage, and a great entree. Wow! Yum, yum, yum.

    Refined B & B

    from

    Portland's White House is everything a refined B & B should be: quiet, original construction, beautifully maintained, well-decorated (without the "cutesy" touches that may come to plague American B & Bs), well-equipped bathrooms that include original fixtures and tiles, excellent bedding.The only area that could be "revised" (and improved) is the breakfast selection, which is a bit heavy on the "sweet" and "adorned" -- and would profit with fresh offerings (e.g., poached eggs) without sauces, "adornments" etc.

    ... turn out to have more room. On this occasion it was nice to have a slightly bigger room, and we could both just about fit into one bed comfortably, except that the bed was Chinese height, so anything below the ankle for me just dangled off the end, ha ha!

    We wanted a snack, but didn’t want to head out past the melee of sellers and dodgy looking characters, or try and navigate the complex lift and floor system (the lift only stopped on even numbers) but hunger won and ...

    The Train!

    ... the year. The train follows the waterways to the south of Puget Sound, so there are great water views along the way.

    Entering Portland, it gets a bit 'industrial', which I think seems to be the norm for both Washington and Oregon States. Seems like there's a blur between residential and industrial in this part of the world...or am I just not seeing it?

    We all continued onto this very trendy cocktail lounge called 'Expatriate' where we had more cocktails and some of the best food we have had in ages. It was a beautiful little place with so much atmosphere. Harley and Kara had smuggled their tiny little dog in and I couldn't help but sneak a little cuddle from him. A couple more of their friends met us then we all moved onto a pub called 'Florida Inn' for one last drink before calling it a ...

    In spite of the rain, this was a wonderful day with friends and family and added to the great memories of the NAMI Walk.

    Nine Waterfalls in One Day!!!

    ... Not bad for a day’s work. We got back in the car just as a tour bus was pulling in and I was glad we had missed the crowd. We went a short ways further and made one more stop, although not for a waterfall. We pulled into Vista House at Crown Point State Scenic Corridor. From here, we had wonderful views up and down the Columbia River Gorge, particularly by heading up to the balcony on the upper floor of Vista ...
