This was very close to our hotel and provided a delicious breakfast. We had the pleasure of being served by one of the happiest waitresses in her job that I have come across. The food was delicious with multi selections typical of a Cora’s. This location was larger than others we have visited. We had a wait but the turnover... More

The self-guided tour starts with a video on the Captain Flavel, his family, and construction of the house. The Flavel house is a great way to see how life was lead during the 19th century.

I enjoyed my tour of the Flavel House. The lady 'on duty' at the door the day I visited was very interesting with her knowledge of the house and history of Astoria. This Queen Anne house with its detailing from the faux painted woodwork, tiles around the fireplace to the sunflower finial that once sat upon its tower are quite... More

Very informative historic site. Love it for a lazy afternoon. Kids learn without realizing it! My daughter still talks about it 23 years later! Well worth the time.

We decided to tour the Flavel house on a rainy day. The house is well maintained and beautiful. It was fun to see the bathrooms in the home. The people were informative and answered a variety of questions. The grounds were nice. I wish I could grow my outdoor ferns to the size of the ones we saw. There is... More

Okay, let's admit most of us of a certain age want to come because Mr. Walsh "worked" here. It's great in it's own right though. The docents are lovely, the video is informative, and the house is in great shape. So amazing that you can get so intimate with a family you never met!

learning about the sea captain who owned just about everything in Astoria (hotels, restaurant, cannery) was interesting and the house is a beauty

The architecture, the story of Captain Flavel and his family, it's amazing. There is a room for kids to play -- so much history. WOW. Definitely recommend this one.

We found the history to this home interesting and it held our attention because our family enjoys old things. Lots of displays! Inexpensive way to spend a few hours out of the bad weather. Would not recommend it to families with small children or teenagers. Many times just a rope keeping you out of a few the the rooms and... More

We walked into town from the cruise ship terminal to this interesting and historical place. You purchase tickets for the tour at the carriage house on the corner of 7th & Exchange St., not the main house at 8th & Duane. We watched an interesting film about the history and people of Astoria focusing on Capt. Flavel, the first pilot... More
