When you’re out and about in a city like Portland Oregon it’s important to feel important. For guests of my next destination, they may walk out feeling like the president! We wound up back for our second visit to Portland Oregon’s only Presidential worthy bed and breakfast, Portland’s White House Bed & Breakfast (1).
Situated in Portland’s North East Historic District, and within walking distance of some amazing shopping and dining, Portland’s White House Bed & Breakfast gets its name from its obvious influences. Built as a summer home by a lumber baron in 1911, this house has 14 columns, a circular driveway, and a fountain to remind guests of their keen lodging choices.
Stately columns and splendid grounds are one thing, but how about the beds? What about a night spent sleeping in Portland’s White House Bed & Breakfast makes guests walking out feel like royalty? Let’s head on inside Portland’s White House Bed & Breakfast and see if this is somewhere that you should Sleep Here Now (2).
Portland’s White House Bed & Breakfast has five guest rooms in the main house and three guest rooms in the adjacent carriage house. Attractions to the neighborhood include many wonderful boutiques, Lloyd Center, International Rose Test Gardens, Japanese Gardens, Portland Art Museum, and much of the rest of the Pearl District are mere moments away. Portland’s White House Bed & Breakfast is also located near enough many stops in the Portland area wine country, Mt. St. Helens, Mt Hood, and the Columbia Gorge
One of the things which has always tickled me about the Portland’s White House Bed & Breakfast has been the spacious and wonderfully appointed bathrooms. The bath in our room, the Balcony Room, has multi-directional shower-heads which spray at you from both front and back from above and at two spots in the mid-section. Molton Brown bath products, and even a chandelier in the bathroom. Many of the other bathrooms are also similarly appointed and all are luxurious.
After a wonderfully relaxing night’s sleep in Portland’s White House Balcony room and a generous breakfast of fresh fruit, muffins, and a veggie frittata with bacon it’s time for me to be on my way. Portland’s White House Bed & Breakfast may not be playing host to any world leaders presently but that doesn’t mean guests won’t leave Portland’s White House feeling like a king. With its stately appointments, regal dressings, and wonderfully helpful new staff, Steve and Kim, on hand, Portland’s White House Bed & Breakfast will leave even the most exhausted traveler feeling warm and contented all over.
