Despite there being no ghosts, it was awesome! The person working there was a hoot! I wish I could have gone up to the attic. That would have made it 100 times better.

After several trips to Oregon we finally toured the Flavel House. A very interesting history of the Flavel family and nice unguided tour of the home. There is a person on site to greet you and answer any questions.

The rooms and furnishing within this old home were extremely well preserved and presented. There is also some information in each room about the back-story of the family who owned the house and contents (the Flavel's, unsurprisingly) and for me personally I would have appreciated a little more info - but there is plenty to make the place come to...

The home has been nicely restored and is a beautiful example of Victorian architectural and furnishings. The displays and informational placards do a great job of bringing the late 1800's to life.

You buy your tickets in the carriage house and watch a short film on the Flavel family there, then you go off for a self-guided tour of the Victorian mansion. It's beautiful! Many of the pieces are authentic to the time, not necessarily the family, but they give you a good idea how the wealthy lived back then. This is... More

This house and its history will blow your mind. It is so beautiful and the history of its creation and restoration are incredible. So glad we happened upon this tiny piece of history in Astoria.

I had read reviews which didn't highly recommend this house tour, but I loved the history, collection of period furnishings and a look at what it must have been like to live during this era. Diary entries from the children highlighted living through the 1906 SF earthquake while visiting there. Tow of the 3 floors were open for self guided... More

Great look into how the rich lived in Victorian times. Interesting family history and history of Astoria as well. Watch the film in the carriage house ticket area first.

The docent was a very gracious lady and that set the tone for a great visit to a cool Victorian house and the family history is also interesting. The architecture and improvements give a glimpse into the lives of the gentry of Astoria....very cool stop, the grounds are well kept and the gift shop large enough for a small theatre.
