We have loved our time in Portland at the Heron Haus. Pam, the owner with her husband, Carl, is a delight and very helpful with directions and assistance. We think the BnB is a gem.
The breakfasts are good, the outside areas with lovely stone walls and plantings, and the inside, all very elegant and tasteful. The Heron Haus is a 1902 mansion on the side of a hill overlooking the city.
It’s very grand and very comfortable, but still has a homey touch. The sitting rooms have collections of board games stacked in book cases, and places to read. A small fridge serves to keep guests' stuff cold. Dormered rooms, parquet floors, interesting owner, a very comfy bed. The gardens are exquisite.
It’s within walking distance of a neighborhood loaded with restaurants, nightlife and interesting little shops. It’s also walking distance to the city street car system. We felt it was a real find.
