Fodor's Expert Review Portland's White House Bed and Breakfast

1914 NE 22nd Ave., Irvington, Portland, Oregon, 97212, United States See on Map

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.
