We've visited the Biltmore and the Hearst Castle and the Pittock has some of the best views of the city and Mt. Hood. The mansion would be comfortable and livable...not quite like living in a museum! Beautifully restored by the City of Portland and the Historical Society. A Portland gem and shouldn't be missed!

Perched on a hillside above Portland, the views are excellent. The mansion itself is a fascinating journey into the history of a wealthy Portland family during the turn of the century. An excellent educational experience.

This historic house was build by a man of great vision, a newspaperman, mountaineer and philanthropist. The house is located in a beautiful part of Portland, with hiking trails around it and the house has many remarkably modern features for a house built more than a century ago. I enjoyed it very much.

Bus ride to the Mansion is easy-getting to the Mansion on foot, not so easy. Bring sensible shoes! Travel guide failed to mention that it is a long, steep, climb to the top of the hill. I would recommend taking a taxi. Once there, the grounds are immaculate and the view-can't say enough about the view. The Mansion is beautiful... More

Could sit outside for days admiring the mountains. What a view, and location! a great opportunity to take time out and relax. Worth checking your mobile/cell is off so you can truly connect (or disconnect as the case may be).

My uncle used to live on the first street down the hill under the Pittock Mansion. The views of Portland and Mount Hood are wonderful from this location. The mansion is beautiful and truly takes you back in time. Wonderful way to spend and afternoon.

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.
