Reviewed December 4, 2013

This is such a beautiful home. It is so well preserved and it's nice to have a self directed tour through the house. A must see for people who love history or just love old Victorian homes!

“Step back in Time in this Victorian Mansion”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

To get tickets to tour the house you go to a separate house that has a very beautiful gift shop filled with Victorian decor. There is a room with relics from that period and you watch a short film about Captain George Flavel and the history of Astoria before you tour the house. Make sure you go into the relics room and get your pressed pennies! They have The Goonies Jail, Astoria Column, Flavel House and Riverfront Trolley. Your ticket is like an invitation that you write your name on like you are an invited guest of the home. Very quaint. A very nice volunteer ( which is a big part of the tourism here) greets you as you come in and gives you a brief history of the house and then you are free to walk through unattended. No flash photography. My jaw dropped when I entered this home and was in awe at the massiveness and the articulate detail and beauty of the period. My 19 year old daughter almost cried at the beauty of the furnishings and the home itself. Very reasonable price of $6 to tour ,free parking on street. Save a $1 per ticket if you have AAA.

“Something to see!”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

George Flavel was a man ahead of his times. He helped navigate ships across the bar back in the late 1800's. His house is enormous. It was amazing to see indoor plumbing and heat registers in a house built in the early 1900's. The detail work is amazing. Loved touring it.

“So-so. Inexpensive way to kill an hour”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

It is impressive to think this house has been standing so long, but the self-guided tour through the two story place is just so-so. Cost $6 per adult. Small gift shop out back is where you buy tickets and watch a short 15min video.
