The mansion itself is not huge by the standards applicable to many wealthy people 100 years ago, but it is well worth seeing for the parts which make up the whole. First, the mansion has many individual rooms which were typical of the early 20th century. As a young boy growing up in the 1940's, I can remember many parts... More

The Pittock mansion is wonderful any time of the year but at Christmas it is a must do. Each year the house is decorated by different designers. Each room is different. So gorgeous. Best to go on a week day because the weekend holiday crowd is intense. Other times of year it is fun to visit. Lots of Portland history,... More

This mansion doesn't speak behalf of Portland by any means. It is, however, an exhilarating historical background about a prominent family during the period of time in which they lived (not all that sure of the exact timeline). The socioeconomic standards & family values are only a handful amongst many other details that interested me. The Pittock family had a... More

The Pittock mansion is a beautiful home which gives you great insight into how the upper class lived in the early 1900's. While it is a gorgeous house it isn't overly ostentatious. It sits a top a hill which has stupendous views of the city, as well as various mountains.This is the type of attraction where you can go through... More

A beautifully restored house, amazing views from all windows, weather permitting. We were lucky enough to be there on a sunny day. Would have been beautiful to live here.

Pittock Mansion was our first stop in Portland-a nice place to walk around, stretch your legs and has a great view of Portland!! The grounds are open and free to the public and the gardens are really beautiful! We didn't go in the mansion itself (there is a fee for that) but enjoyed the picturesque views of the city.

This was the home of a wealthy business man and his family. It is perched on a mountain overlooking Portland. If you're interested in history and how others lived in the past you will like this. Admission is $10. per adult at this writing. A pretty good deal for this type of attraction. Nice view of Mt. Hood and Mt.... More

Even though the Mansion was closed, my group traveled there to photograph the night skyline of Portland. It was cloudy, and the lights of the city reflected off the clouds above making them blue, pink, green, and purple.

Built by the early publisher of the Portland Oregonian, this is a great visit with a tour provided. See one of the first bathtub/showers in Oregon. There is a cost.

Enjoyed taking adult family and then another time taking 11 yr old grandson who wanted to see what a mansion looked like. He thought it would be bigger but liked it all the same. Go on a sunny day to enjoy the views!
