I loved the simple bed & breakfast style, with a self-service set-up. Don't stay here if you are expecting to be waited on hand and foot, as it is not that kind of place! Do stay here if you love well maintained old houses with tremendous charm, cleanliness, and can appreciate details like organic food, and recycling and composting containers for your garbage. We were given the code to the front door before our arrival, and the keys to our rooms were left in the doors of the rooms we were staying in. Upon walking into the entry, our jaws dropped at seeing the two beautiful stain glass windows on either side of the staircase, and we marveled at the workmanship in the gorgeous, inlaid, wood floors, and Craftsman era details of the house. A caretaker was around during the day, but the caretaker does not clean rooms during the stay, or help carry your bags. You are also responsible for helping yourself to breakfast or snacks in the kitchen, and for cleaning up your mess afterwards.

Our group occupied two rooms; the second floor suite and the ground floor studio apartment. Both rooms were both very clean and comfortable. The rooms do not have TVs, and we did note see one in the house. There was a computer available to use on the ground floor, and the house has good working wi-fi. There is also an industrial washer and dryer in the basement that you can get permission to use, and you may store your food in the main kitchen refrigerator if you are not staying in the apartment (there are labels to put your name on your own food).

Comparing the two rooms, the studio apartment has a queen bed, stall shower, and a kitchenette with small stove, mini refrigerator, and basic place settings and cookware. It also has a small table and two chairs, with easily accessible plugs to charge electronics or use a computer while sitting at the table. The room was extremely quiet, with no audible outside noise, and we only heard very faint sounds of people walking in the rooms above us. The shower did not have a lot of water pressure, and sprayed outside of the shower pan, requiring an extra towel to soak up the water from the floor. Shower aside, I loved the seclusion of the apartment within the house, and would happily stay here again!

The second floor suite has a ing size bed, claw-foot tub, and a sitting room with a fire place (not sure if you can use it, we didn't ask). The traffic on Caesar Chavez Street was audible in the room, and one could also hear the people walking about on the third floor. This is a larger room, and more romantic than the apartment.

Continental breakfast included a variety of bagels, muffins, and breads, cereals with organic milk, coffee, tea, and organic fruit and jams.

We've stayed at the companion property, Bluebird, a few times with reliably good experiences. Recently we tried out the top-floor suite at Evermore and were blown away. I hope to visit a few more times in 2013. Obviously this place is not for you if you require services, but if what you want is a beautiful room in a great location in Portland, this will be VERY hard to beat.

Room Tip: Reserve early for your choice of rooms (3–4 months in advance, probably) but all the rooms are nice...

We stayed in the front suite at Evermore and were so pleased with the room. We had a wonderful king size bed, sitting room and bathroom. We also enjoyed a beautiful balcony up in the trees. I like the idea of a B&B but often the breakfast experience is awkward. I really just want a cup of coffee and am not a morning conversationalist. At Evermore, the breakfast is serve yourself with some bagels, muffins, juice, cereal at your disposal. Whoever wakes up first, flips on the coffee maker. So you don't have to worry about sleeping through breakfast or sitting with strangers. There is a lovely dining room and sitting areas if you do want to visit with other guests. I think this place is perfect for me. It is walking distance (3 blocks) to Division Street restaurants and shops and Clinton Street is a biking street.

Room Tip: The guesthouse faces a busy street. Even though the windows and heavy drapes block out lots of nois...

Don't expect a B&B; this is a guest house. You sleep here in big comfortable beds. Food is provided for you at breakfasttime (and as anytime snacks). You have the run of the place, a perfectly restored old mansion in a convenient location. You get free parking. Think of it as your apartment while you're staying in Portland (thus, you make your own bed, clean up after yourself). It's clean, neat, well appointed (albeit a bit spare in the common areas), and someone is on call 24 hours in case you need something (as we did, when our A/C started leaking down the wall at midnight). The 2nd floor suite, with our own private balcony (bring your breakfast up here! have drinks under the tree canopy!), a king bed and an extra twin bed was perfect for my husband and me, here visiting my sister, who stayed with us. We'd stay here again - good value.

Room Tip: The private balcony was a bonus!

Our 3rd floor suite is really nice, but there is no linen service and the kitchen is crowded with people making their own breakfast. There should also be a dishwasher to ensure dish/utensil cleanliness.
There also is no TV- I know it's a b/b, but at least one in the common area would be nice.

Great location, transport nearby. Rooms are large. We stayed in the studio on the ground floor and a suite on the second floor because we extended the stay. Rooms had a musty smell. Breakfast was ok. There were no wheat free products, only muffins, donuts, bagels, pancake mix and fruit. Towels were not changed during the stay and did not dry out from morning to night. No information regarding laundry services, bus service. Only information on bike rides. Hard to speak with owner.

In a large old mansion, with stained glass windows, a not very welcoming B and B
Food left in kitchen, baked goods in fridge, coffee made, caretaker on premises, but no atmosphere. Good if you want privacy, a place to keep your food in the fridge, and perhaps for those on longer stay. However, not very good value in relation to other local B and B where welcome and breakfast v good. Also no walk in shower, so not suitable for older visitor as too dangerous to climb into the raised old fashioned bath with shower.
On a main road, so though I had a terrace, too noisy to keep window open or sit out.

Not a place I would recommend.

Room Tip: I had the large room on the second floor facing the front of the house. Very large but as noted more...
