Stayed in 2006 but could only select as far back as July 2010 had to respond to "Pass". Our stay at McMaster House during the fall of 2006 was very comfortable. Vintage atmosphere and unpretentious hospitality fostered a sense of staying with friends of the family. After walks through nearby neighborhoods, shopping areas and the Japanese Garden it felt like... More

We enjoyed our spacious room at the MacMaster very much, and the breakfasts were outstanding. It's in a wonderful location Portland, walking distance from so many interesting places, not least of all the Washington Park with its famous Rose Gardens. The fresh flowers and warm charming hosts all contributed to our stay at the MacMaster. I would definitely recommend it.

The yard was a mess. The office contains a rabbit cage and a dirty fish tank. You can imagine the smell. The rooms are dated and there is no theme to anything. We passed on the breakfast as the place wasn't very clean.

In response to "Pass", the home is historic not dated. The furnishings are either antique or period. There is no fish tank in the office but yes we do have a rabbit that lives here and we have guests that do not even know she is in here until they depart the room, which means to me that there is...

I travelled to the West Coast for the first time. It was important for me to find a place where I would feel comfortable since I was travelling alone so I opted for a B&B rather than a hotel. The MaCMaster house is a historic building. The interior had murals on many of the walls and the furnishings were in... More

We purchased a catered dinner for 8 at an auction at the MacMaster house. After discussing the menu we opted to book 4 rooms and extend the festivities. We are certainly glad we did. Over a delicious 7 course meal, host Skip explained the history of the house, the finer points of the food we were eating and the wines... More

I have sought out and stayed in B&Bs around the world, from Arctic Alaska to South Africa, and MacMaster B&B is the only one that rates five glittering stars in every category: beautiful rooms that are both elegant and comfortable; luscious sheets and pillows; delicious full breakfasts beautifully served; hosts who are helpful, easy-going, and generous; location in a lovely,...

We stayed at the MacMaster House on our Wedding night in the McCord Suite. It was beautiful! Upon our arrival they had placed flowers, candles and bath salts in the bathroom. It was amazing!!! We returned for our first anniversary and plan to return each and every year. The breakfasts are amazing, the location is great and the staff is... More

The house is in bad need of repairs and it shows. When you walk into the front door you are greeted with the smell of something foul and later discover there is a pet rabbit kept in the office. The house may be close to many wonderful sights in Portland, but overall it was a big disappointment for the price.... More
