Just as regal as the White House in our nation’s capital, Portland’s White House Bed and Breakfast is housed in a Greek Revival mansion built in 1910. From the grand entryway to the cozy communal areas, the landscaped gardens to the ornate furnishings, this property is a must-visit if you like the B&B style of travel.
The rooms at Portland’s White House Bed and Breakfast are split between The Main House and The Carriage House and feature the perfect blend of old-school charm (like canopy beds and private balconies) and new-world amenities (like flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi).
YOU SHOULD KNOW The rooms at The Main House are currently under construction and won’t be available for stays until April 2018.
Each room at Portland’s White House Bed and Breakfast has its own private bathroom, some of which feature jacuzzi or clawfoot tubs.
The entrance lobby at Portland’s White House Bed and Breakfast is truly majestic, with a grand staircase, an ornately detailed ceiling and crown molding, and chandelier light fixtures.
As is traditional for bed-and-breakfasts, a full breakfast is included in your stay and is served in the dining room from 7:30 am to 9 am.
Got dietary restrictions? No worries. Just let the staff know - they’ll whip up some vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free options for you.

Screen Door (6-minute drive) serves up one of the best brunches in the city, with Southern-inspired dishes like Chicken and Waffles with a side of Praline Bacon that draw crowds of Portlanders every weekend (get there early or prepare for a wait). Sweet Basil Thai Cuisine (12-minute walk) is another spot worth checking out. Enjoy classic Thai dishes like Pad Thai and Spicy Coconut Noodles on their canopied patio.
