Only found out about this place from a coupon book at our hotel. Well worth the price of admission. Tour made better by a super knowledgable, and enthusiastic, docent. Had great personal stories to fill in the blanks of the actual history of the mansion. A little tricky to get to, especially when you've become spoiled by the practically free... More

Good for adults and older kids, the mansion provides an intersting look into the high life 100 years ago in Portland. Great location with spectacular views of the city as well. I went to a private function there that was quite good, but the regular layout and attraction is certainly worth a visit for residents and visitor to Portland alike.

This house provides a great look at life for the well-to-do families of early 20th century Portland. This compact yet beautifully restored home has been refurnished to reflect the opulence of the previous owners lifestyle (in addition to their well chronicled decline).

Decided at the last minute to go see this and sure are glad we didn't miss it! Worth the trip for the views alone but the house is fascinating. Lots of unusual features and a different perspective on the early days of Portland.

Many visitors to Portland go to see Pittock Mansion, the 100-year old home of the former owner of Portland's newspaper, The Oregonian. The house is a treasure and a must-see but there is a fee. But many people do not know that they can get a guided tour of the extensive 4+ acre garden for free. Compared to the house,... More

We really enjoyed this tour. Although the day we were there they were getting ready for a function that night and the grounds were cluttered with a big tent and many people getting the place ready. We were still able to tour the house and see the beautiful grounds. Don't miss this place while your in Portland.

We stumbled upon this property while walking on one of the trails from Washington Park. The weather cooperated & the views of Downtown Portland were spectacular the day we visited in July. Did not do the tour of the interior of the main house($15 per adult),but the grounds keeper house situated just below the main residence was open with a... More

If you want to see Portland, come here. If it is a clear day, you can see Mount Hood. Love the view, easy access.

Incredible property! Reasonably priced as far as tourist attractions go (two adults and a student was $25). You can tour on your own but admission includes a guided tour which gives lots of historical info about the house, the family and the city. Beautiful drive up to the site and there’s picnic tables available if you want to enjoy the... More
