Was in Portland for one night.
The White House was so amazingly welcoming and friendly. The house is gorgeous and has a very nice patio, which my friend and I enjoyed glasses of wine and the sunshine.
We stayed in the Chauffeurs quarters. The room was beyond amazing. When we arrived we were greeted with cookies, chocolate and a lovely bottle of Champagne. Music was softly playing, which I thought to be a very nice touch. The bathroom was very simple and the shower was one of the best I've ever experienced. This particular room has a nice one person jetted tub, I was not able to experience the tub; however, the shower had two heads, I had to force my self out of the shower because it was just so relaxing.
The next amazing thing about this room, and i'm guessing the others as well, was the amazing king size bed. It has to be one of the most comfortable beds I've EVER slept in. My friend and I were joking around that we wanted to take the bed with us, or never leave. We also agreed that had we not gone out for the evening, staying in the bed and watching movies would have been just as or more fabulous of a night. One note,there is a stair case to a room above, I was a little worried about noise, but to my happy surprise I heard nothing.
The morning greeted us with a delicious breakfast, which we almost missed due to the bed's comfort. We were served coffee and a choice of juice, the meal was a great bread pudding french toast topped with fruit and served with a side of bacon (always a plus!). It was a very filling breakfast and a great way to start the day.
The last thing is the staff. Myra and Lanning are so welcoming and friendly, Very helpful and willing to help even with the smallest requests.
There are some great little restaurants in the neighborhood, Found a great little sandwich place just about eight blocks away called Petisco, amazing happy hour.
Overall, I highly recommend staying at the White House. I will definitely stay again.
