Nob Hill represents the best of the BnB experience--the reasons why we have come to prefer this type of accomodation to a hotel: surroundings that are created by real human beings, who care about the experience of the guests who come into their homes (you need to be warm and hospitable to be in this business, and owners who run the place are always better than surrogates).
We arrived at 3:30 in the afternoon at the house on a hill, and tired after our trip, sat on a comfy front porch with great views of the Columbia River. Tana, the owner was not in when we arrived--she was out buying gluten-free flour to meet the needs of another couple that was arriving.
She drove up, introduced herself and then offered us a much-appreciated snack as we sat on the porch.
The French Suite was just that...though there were only 2 of us, the rooms would have been good for a small family.
The bed, large and under an interesting canopy had great sheets and a comfy mattress.
Breakfast, the rest of the BnB experience was excellent. Tana is a health conscious woman, so the breakfast, while substantial, was not filled with the over-the-top whipped cream and syruppy concoctions that many people (not myself) enjoy. And the coffee was great.
I always like to add some fair balance, so my reviews do not seem gushy, but this was one of the best BnBs I have been to.
If we are going anywhere that takes us past Nob Hill, I would love to return.
