This is my favorite big house in America! Loved: Excellent views (especially if clear), garden, history behind the house, exhibit about how the house was built (in basement), layout--a very livable, warm-and-inviting mansion like no other Liked: Gift shop, gate house

If the weather is good and you can see Mt Hood, then drive or hike up to the mansion and check out the views, including Mt St Helens, Mt Adams and downtown Portland.

Besides the beautiful vistas from outside the home, Pittock Mansion is a wonderful example of how life was in Portland in the early 1900s. It is especially fun to visit during the Christmas season when it has been decorated by local artisans. Each year there is a different theme.

A great place to visit and spend the afternoon and some history in the area. Dress comfortable and bring your walking shoes a trip to Washington Park after your tour is a MUST ;)

A trip to the past. You will enjoy seeing all the original furnishings and reading about the beginnings. The view from up here is amazing. If you can't make it into the mansion at least go look at the view of the city at night.

this place was beautiful . What I like the best was the freedom to walk around and see everything all parts of the home where open to look at. The bathrooms where amazing and I really liked the laundry room. But the whole place was just wonderful inside and out . A must see when visiting Portland.

This is quite an amazing home with great views from the grounds. We enjoyed the guided tour which gives you quite a bit more information than the signs posted in the house for the self guided tour. It also gives you an appreciation of how much they have put into restoring this beautiful mansion, considering the condition the historical society... More

We regularly "hike" (if you can call a couple of miles a hike) to Pittock via the Wildwood trail in nearby Hoyt Arboretum. The trail is somewhat steep in places, and you have to cross busy Burnside at one point, but the reward is one of the prettier views of Portland, the Willamette river, Mt. Hood and more distant volcanoes,... More

I had researched at home, only disappointment was i had to take a cab as public transport does not reach this spot. Suggestion maybe FRI-SUN there is set times for transport to take visitors up. Otherwise Taxi is USD15 each way from downtown. The home and the history is fascinating. Henry Pittock was well ahead of his time with his... More
