We took a city tour that covered admission to Pittock Mansion - the view is breathtaking - 4 peaks are visible on a clear day. This mansion sits in Macleay Park across from Washington Park in Portland, OR. Our guide said the mansion was set to be demolished and the land developed but citizens rallied to save it. Walking through... More

Road condition that day did not allow vehicles to go up closer to the mansion's parking area. We had to climb the hill and it was very windy and cold. The mansion was impressive with a lot of period pieces of furniture and home equipment. Photos and posters were helpful. Wonderful views around the property!

Enjoyed a visit to this lovely historic house recently. Walk up through the arboretum was excellent. Very interesting to read all about the family and the furnishings

I did not come here to visit the mansion, I was simply just looking for a good view of the town. The observatory gives a great view of the city as well as mount hood in the background. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Unfortunately we stopped here later in the evening when the mansion itself was closed, but the view and the landscaping around the grounds was breathtaking. This historic site has a rich and valuable history, which I later looked up on the computer. Being very easy to get to, with lots of parking, I would recommend its viewing to anybody, especially...

Nicely kept mansion with preserved period pieces tell a good story of Portland in the early 1900s. The self-paced mansion tour is worth the price of admission, and the views of Portland from the well-kept grounds are impressive. The "mansion" isn't huge by today's standards, and therefore isn't overly time-consuming to explore.

This review isn't for the actual mansion tour itself but just for the location. We were looking for a place that gave us a good view of the city during the evening. We found this place and fortunately, the hours for the grounds itself went beyond the time the mansion closed. This place offered gorgeous views and definitely worth a... More

check it out. if you like history or just looking at cool old houses, its fun to take the tour or explore it on your own. dont for the coach house which is even cooler, and actually free. if you arent that into paying to see old homes, at least drive up there for a free walk in the grounds... More

I did not tour the mansion, but went after dark to view the city. Magnificent. Breathtaking. Be sure to bring a flashlight or use your phone reading light; it's pretty dark (which is the point).

Do you want to impress someone?. This is it. A nice place to go if you have time to kill. You may have to walk a little, paking is about a block away... but dishes are delicious and very flavorfull.
