This restored lumber baron's mansion is truly amazing. Situated in a quiet upper-scale residential area of North East Portland, the White House is a few blocks from stores and restaurants on NE Broadway in the Irvington District. You can park your car in front of the White House and leave it there during your stay, if so inclined. A short 5 minute walk gets you to the #17 TriMet bus that can take you to many stops in downtown Portland with a 25 minute ride, including Union Station and the Pearl District.
The rooms are all gorgeously appointed in period style, yet with modern touches like individual AC, phones and TVs. Breakfasts are suitable for lumber barons, too! (see picture). Superb house-made cookies and candy treats are offered daily.
The staff, from owner Lanning to his helpers, are informative, congenial and attentive to your needs.
All in all, a great stay - elegant, quiet, relaxing. Plus room prices offer a good value for what you get.
