This is a fine place to visit. The view of the city from here is just lovely and the house itself is full of interesting discoveries. A word of caution: Christmas may not be the best time to go, even though that's when people flock there to see the house decorated. I found the decorations exceedingly overdone, to the point...

Pittock Mansion is an absolute must see when visiting Portland. Located on a large hill overlooking Portland, the house has been wonderfully restored and furnished after falling into disrepair in the late 1950s. The house has a unique design in the shape of a "U". This maximizes the views from the many rooms and creates a little more privacy. Admission... More

This place has the most beautiful view! You can walk the grounds or pay a small fee to visit the 23 room house. If you enjoy history, I recommend the tour.

This was the first time we visited this mansion in Portland. It's quite beautiful. Even if you just park and walk on the grounds, it's worth a visit. Good view of Portland city center from the lawn. $10 is not bad to see the inside of the house. I don't know if I would pay $19 to have the back... More

The lady at the entrance to the mansion was a bubbly respite to the man who scoffed at our questions about the mansion, I went to see the beautiful interior of the mansion and was transported to a more peaceful time. Maybe because there were very few people there but the rooms are all very accessible and it is wonderful... More

Compares to going on a National Trust tour in an old English manor house. Like stepping back in time. Probably best enjoyed by folks who like history and architecture. Not recommend for children.

We didn't go inside the house, but the gardens and view of the Portland skyline can't be beat! And it's free!

The story of the early founders of Portland was charming. And what a view of the City - then and now - loved it.

We hit the guided tour of the mansion and feel it added another dimension beyond just reading the placards. Our tour guide was interesting and had some nice stories about the family. Don't expect a Biltmore mansion, but a very good example of a man's dream "chateau" built in the French Renaissance style with a modern twist.
