There is not a lot of early 1900's home I would like to live in on a practical level. Too dark and danky, but this one is BEAUTIFUL! Lots of light and nice room sizes in the most amazing spot in Portland overlooking the entire valley.

Overall, this is a nice place to visit. The view from the gardens and walk are exceptional. However, the price for touring the mansion is pretty steep for what you get. We did the self-guided tour which was nice and the signs let you know quite a bit about the various rooms. However, there were certain rooms with no signs... More

Have been in many mansions with this one rather ordinary, but the view of the city and mountains makes it worth the trip. Very few original furnishings within the mansion. Docent was not very good. Really wanted to give 3.5 stars

did not see the insides, though enjoyed the sunset view over the city and toward Mt. Hood. A few benches/tables for a picnic on the grounds (no fee required).

This is a must see when you go to Portland. It's an amazingly beautiful home up in the hills, so you'll need to go by car, bus or taxi. There are tours, which is included in your entry fee and it was very interesting to learn about the family, see their portraits and learn about their lives. It's literally stepping... More

This is an amazing step back into the past. Take the time to walk around the complete house and grounds, it is well worth the time.

Henry Pittock, because of his wealth, left Portland a huge repository of early 20th Century family and social history with this house. I was privileged to view the latest in: personal living quarters and style, intercom systems, shower systems, elevators, fridge, sophisticated stove and laundry equipment. Just about everything someone with a Pierce-Arrow and a three car garage could want.... More

The out rock mansion is a very worthwhile destination. Be sure to take the free guided tour since the docents will add a great deal to your understanding of the history the view. From the mansions grounds is impressive as you can see the entire city very easily. The roses and the gardenadd to the experience.

This mansion is a work of art, engineering and innovation. The location with the view of the city and river is great. Make sure that you take the tour, you will learn a lot about life back in the early 1900s.
