“Very pretty”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's beautiful, but I remember going with my brothers in our late teens/early 20s and thinking it was a bit boring. You have to be in the museum mood and we definitely weren't. They decorate it very nicely at Christmas

“The first stop for any tourist”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

The building has limited hours - so if you want to visit the Mansion itself plan ahead. The tour is worth the time.

But you can visit the grounds even when the Mansion is not open. The view over Portland is outstanding. When the weather is clear you can see all the way to Mt Rainier. The Parks dept keeps the place looking great.

“Impressive home”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Interesting to compare to current homes. Beautifully restored. Stairs to negotiate, but elevator available for special needs. The view is amazing. Docent led tour sometimes available. Be sure to read the postings throughout.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Beautiful old house. Apparently has great views, but were were there on a rainy, foggy day. It was still great ... even after we walked there uphill from downtown, 4 miles in drizzle and chill.

Staff is very friendly and knowledgable about both the mansion and the area in general.
