“Lovely home, trendy location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2009

We stayed at the Heron Haus last July and just loved this B&B: The public spaces were beautiful, warm, and filled with light; the decor was elegant and eclectic; breakfast in the gorgeous dining room was a civilized affair; and the location within walking distances to the trendy NW 22nd and 23rd (& to Saint Honore bakery) was so much fun! And driving up that curving driveway made us feel like we were coming into an exclusive and private residence: we were, since this B&B is typical of the homes of the "beautiful" and old-moneyed people of Portland.
One probably does not need a car to stay here if one just needs access to downtown Portland as there are bus & tram stops nearby.
We stayed at Heron Haus while it was under the previous ownership, and we actually liked her respecting our independence, but it sounds like the current owner can only make this B&B even more enjoyable.

We were just there this weekend, and had a great experience. All the negative reviews on this site were under the previous owner. The current owner, Pam, was very friendly and served great breakfasts. The room was very nice, and we would definitely stay there again. Also, it is in a great part of Portland. It is an easy walk to the Nob Hill area restaurants, and also not too far from the Pearl District. It is located in a charming old turn of the century house.

After reading the negative reviews about Heron Haus, I almost didn't book a room. However, I saw a positive one that said there was a new owner. I took a chance......and I'm happy I did. The house is beautiful and the owner, Pam, was a perfect hostess. She made our stay delightful! I would recommend Heron Haus to anyone looking for a B and B.

  • Liked — Beautiful house in a great location.
  • Disliked — That we couldn't stay longer.

Whoa! to all the people who wrote bad reviews! There is a brand new owner at Heron Haus named Pam and she is absolutely delightful. My wife and have just stayed there for three nights in tha Manu room and we can't tell you enough how lovely it was. Heron Haus is very quiet and peaceful and located in a great established part of the city. Close walking to restaurants and boutique shopping. Pam went out of her way to accommodate my wifes celiac disease buy making delicious gluten free treats especially for her. We highly recommend the Heron Haus when in Portland and will definitely be back
