Below is a selection of bed and breakfast in Portland that are in different areas of the city. Portland is a city of beautiful old houses and some of those magnificent homes have been turned into bed and breakfast homes by people who understand quality and beauty and are willing to offer it to others to enjoy even if it is only for one night.
I was in this house many years ago when it was in a state of cosmetic disrepair. The owner at that time had the dream of restoring it to its original glory. I am glad that it has been accomplished though by another person. I think it is the most spectacular bed and breakfast in Portland.
The location of this house in northeast Portland makes it perfect for visiting the Convention Center, the Lloyd Center Mall, and the Portland sports arena, The Rose Garden. It is a short distance from MAX, the lightrail that can take you into downtown Portland in minutes and even out to the Oregon Zoo, Washington Park, and the International Rose Test Garden.
It is a Greek Revival Mansion with five spacious guest rooms. All rooms have private baths, climate control, and wireless internet access. Vegetarian breakfasts are available and there is a complimentary espresso bar
In the same neighborhood in northeast Portland as Portland's White House above, the Lion and the Rose is close to MAX, the Lloyd Center Mall, the Rose Quarter Convention Center, and the Rose Garden Sports Arena.
The spacious and elegantly decorated rooms all have private baths. A full two-couse breakfast is served and soda, juice, spring water and tea is available complimentary. Free wireless internet access is available as well as a free guest PC.
Now, in another neighborhood of fine old homes across the Willamette River in southwest Portland is MacMaster House. It was originally constructed in the 1880's in the Queen Anne style with Colonial Revival elements added in 1905. It is close to Washington Park and a short walk to the wonderful boutique shops, restaurants, and art galleries on NW 23rd.
Seven guest rooms are available and all have central air conditioning. Some have private bathrooms and fireplaces. All rooms have TV/VCR and there is a free Video Library. Wireless internet access is available in all the rooms.
Rose Cottage is also on a hill in southwest Portland but with a western view. It is a modern building in a "farmhouse" style. There are only two rooms available. One has a private entrance, a sitting room with fireplace, and a bedroom. There is also a private covered patio. The other guest room is spacious. Both guest rooms have a mini-fridge, coffee and tea making facilities, TV and VCR, and are air-conditioned.
