The Pittock Mansion requested that we reserve and purchase our tickets online prior to showing up, but that was not necessary. It was a pretty ride up the mountain to the mansion and we took a self-guided tour that took us approximately one hour to complete. There was quite a lot of written information about the home and the people who lived in it. The tour was Covid-19 safe as could be, with one way passages throughout and 6 foot designations between people. Afterwards, since it was a sunny day, we enjoyed a tour of the gardens as well as a picturesque view of Mount Hood.

Fascinating house design, spectacular gardens and view, generally informative displays/signage. It is worth the tour and the setting is spectacular. That said, you proceed from one roped off area to another and sometimes get a livestock through the chute feeling which might be part covid and part that this is a very popular attraction. Caretaker's house was supposedly open and would have loved to see it as it plays an integral part in the family history - but it was locked. Rooms sometimes decorated by interior designers' (term used loosely) interpretations of xyz 'period' that has nothing to do with the house itself nor how it would have been decorated c.1910. Interesting history of Vanport on basement level - a story I did not know. With popularity of the place they probably do have limit access as is done, but compared with, say, the Overholser in OKC, the Bingham-Waggoner in Independence or Salisbury House in Des Moines, you get a much less thorough experience here.

This beautiful mansion from the early 1900s offers sweeping views of the city and beautiful grounds. You can drive there, but we hiked; it’s part of the trail system within Washington Park. Our hike was definitely uphill! The forest was beautiful and it was cool to emerge at this mansion and be rewarded with the panoramic view of the city below. Note that the mansion is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during COVID-19; however, even on those days, the grounds are pretty and views fantastic. A nice addition to our Portland visit.

The house has a number of interesting and beautiful architectural styles. The house is spacious enough to spread out visitors and keep socially distant. Most of the furnishings are donated period pieces (not the originals), but all are quite nicely done.

This mansion is on the small side but beautiful none the less. The $10 entrance fee was well worth. The real star of the property is the location, way up from the city on a hilltop. The views are spectacular, and on a clear day you can see Mt. Rainer. The roses on the estate are lovely, and there are trails to hike on. This can be a full day excursion, the Test Rose Garden and Japanese Gardens are really close by. We took an Uber, no bus goes this far.

We were looking for something to do while in Portland for a couple of days and decided to check out this mansion. We were glad we did. The inside is beautifully furnished and interesting, and the grounds and views from the lawn are absolutely stunning. It’s a great place to take in a view of the city and the autumn leaves.

This is not to demean anything about the mansion but to praise it in an off-hand way. We took the time to ride up to the mansion fully prepared to pay to get in and take a tour. After luckily finding a spot in the overflowing parking lot we went up to the mansion but quickly realized what we wanted to see was the overview above Portland and Mount Hood in the distance. It is gorgeous! The praise I want to give is that the mansion doesn't charge for people to come up and share that view! They could have easily charged a fee and I would have gladly paid it (I made a donation on the way out). Thank you Pittock Mansion for being a breath of fresh air in an otherwise greedy world!

This is a great way to learn more about the city of Portland. Throughout the house, there is info all over regarding the history of Portland. There are also amazing views of the city since the house sits up on the hillside. I highly recommend seeing this landmark.

This is a must see if you are visiting Portland. It gives you an ides of how the upper half lived in early Portland. Beautiful grounds overlooking the city. The home, I believe, was owned by the original owner of the newspaper "Oregonian. Easy to get to from downtown.

The building is beautiful, and the grounds are well maintained. The view of the city and Mt. Hood is stunning, and can see that this view must be on a plethora of postcards! Peaceful day, will return when mansion is open.
