We stayed at the Portland White House for three nights while on our honeymoon in Portland. From booking to arrival to departure, our experience was top notch. The breakfasts are amazingly delicious, and the service was comprehensive. The ratings on Tripadvisor rank this B&B as number one, and we think it's deserving. The friendly and helpful owner and staff made our stay even more enjoyable. We were welcomed as familiar friends.
Bonuses: Rooms are as lovely as they seem from website photos, very clean, lots of help and advise on places to go in Portland, close enough to downtown to take public transportation, wonderful staff, great breakfasts, accommodating with arrival/departure times, cute shopping neighborhood within walking distance of B&B.
Icing on the cake: When owner Lanning learned we were honeymooners, he offered us a complimentary upgrade to the Baron's suite with a king bed and luxurious bath. Staff members took us with our luggage to the MAX lightrail station for airport departure, which was helpful since we didn't rent a car; it saved us a taxi fare to the airport. Extra bacon graciously given upon request. :)
Noteworthy observations: We stayed in the Blarney on our first night; don't let its size deter you from booking. The decor was pleasant and the room was cozy.
Oops: Forgot to take photos of rooms. See Portland's White House website for those. The rooms were consistent with the photos of the lobby/dinning/resting areas.
