Situated in Portland's North East Historic Irvington District, Portland's White House was built as a summer home in 1911 by Robert Lytle, a wealthy lumber baron. The house was billed as the most expensive home built in the district for the period.

I rented a queen and king bedrooms with private bathrooms that were impeccably clean. Able to open windows to allow fresh air. Seated privately for breakfast when other guests (three) present in separate dining area. Second night of stay we had the whole mansion to ourselves Will use Portland White House next time I travel to Portland.

I found this event space for our upcoming wedding in September and can't praise it enough. My jaw dropped when I walked into the rooms and saw the well-furnished, immaculate space. Every room is so inviting and lovely. Carol, the manager and event planner could not be more gracious or accomodating. We originally thought we just wanted to use the venue for a noon wedding only but Carol shared the "Elopement" package which includes two nights in elegant rooms, Friday night for the bride's family, and Saturday night for us. Breakfast included. Everything we need is being provided and arranged. We will have a small wedding at the house and Zoom it to all of our loved ones. It is definitely much more upscale and elegant than I had initially planned. I am just going to enjoy my day!

This is a really lovely, enchanting inn. The inside has been spectacularly restored and is just beautiful. My bed was so comfortable I did not want to get out of it ! It's a relaxing walk in the neighborhood, lush with greenery and filled with well cared for homes - some appeared historical. Broadway, a few blocks away, offers many interesting shops and restaurants. I had never been aware of the Irvington District but I completely enjoyed it. Carol and Brian were so wonderful and warmly welcoming; they could not have been nicer. And Brian's breakfast was way beyond expectation in artistry and absolute deliciousness! Of note, the inn is one of the Unique Inns but does not participate in the Rewards Program. Also, your room may be changed from the room you book if you stay one night only, which is included in the inn's information.

Our daughter’s wedding plans were cancelled due to corona virus but instead of a large wedding she had a perfect small wedding with large zoomed following . The staff at the White House were amazing and able to have flowers, cake, romantic dinner and breakfast to make their day perfect! The venue is spectacular and the photos are beautiful.

We were so happy to be a part of their day! While we know how hard it was to make the adjustment to their original wedding plans. I hope the memories they make at Portland's White House will be sweet and stay with them forever.

Portland's White House is a place a didn't even know we had until we were gifted a night there! The Mansion and Carriage House are both beautiful and newly remodeled. we enjoyed sitting downstairs by the fire and strolling around the house and the neighborhood. The managers, Carol and Brian, were super sweet and a joy to talk to. They both made us feel right at home, and the breakfast they provided was top notch! I completely recommend this place and would love to go back!
