“A very special place”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

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.

Room Tip: my guess is they all will be good, but we liked our room on the first floor--French Suite

The rooms and breakfasts are high quality, but that view of the Columbia River from the front porch is one of a kind. I think the river helps float your cares away. Mt. St. Helens looms in the soft afternoon light. It seems to be the wrong direction, until you realize that the river has almost twisted into an Oxbow right below the B & B.

Not only were we treated with warmth, but the accommodations were beyond expectations. The taste, style, and comfort of this b&b were awesome! Big thanks to Tana for all the considerations. See you soon!

Room Tip: Stay at the Casa Blanca, it had it all!

I'm so glad that others posted their review of Nob Hill Riverview B&B. We wanted to be in St. Helens to be close to an event that we're going to attend & then I found the reviews from others. We reserved the smallest suite but it was just fine. The French suite came with a sitting room which we hardly used.There's a huge, very comfortable king-size bed. TV with cable. Internet service. The only con would be the tiny sink in the bathroom. It's so tiny that I splash water all over the floor when I wash my face. Also, the handheld shower wouldn't lock properly on the handle that it fell on my head once. I think this suite can easily accommodate 4 but with such a tiny bathroom, I'm not so sure. The best part of the stay is the sumptuous breakfast prepared by the owners. The homemade yogurt is so creamy & taste so natural. The Dutch pancake with Marionberry sauce is yummy. Don't forget the apple strudel & sausage. I wish I had enough room. Lovely owners. Lovely inn. Check it out.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Nob Hill Riverview B&B and loved every minute of it. We were in St Helens for a family reunion and needed a nice quiet place to stay each night after spending the days with our neices, their husbands, and 4 amazing little boys.

We have stayed at many B&B's around the country, and Nob Hill turned out to be one of the most enjoyable B&B experiences we have ever had. The home itself is beautifully restored, thanks to Tana, our wonderful Innkeeper, and her husband. All the public rooms are so lovely and inviting, you just want to find "your spot" to sit and relax.
The Front Porch has a wonderful view of the Columbia River, Mt St Helens, Mt Hood, and Mt Adams. And, the furniture on the porch invites you relax and enjoy those fabulous views which we did every morning and evening.

Our suite was spacious, comfortable, and the bed so relaxing, we had to force ourselves to get up in the morning for breakfast. And what a breakfast it was each day. Fresh Oregon berries on homemade yogurt, sweet pastries hot from the oven, then special mains with great organic sausages on the sides. The best "Dutch Babies" we have ever had to include our trip to Amsterdam.

We are already planing a return trip this fall with good friends from Oregon and Washington. Cant wait!!!!!

We loved everything about the Nob Hill Bed & Breakfast. The house is a romantic retreat it is beautifully renovated and decorated. The owners kept its original charm which reminded me of my grandparents home. Our room over-looked the Columbia River and when we opened the window could hear doves cooing in the morning. The owners Matt and Tana were so nice and made us feel at home right away. This is not just a business to them but a passion and we could tell. They spoiled us with fantastic breakfasts, plush towels and robes. The front porch is a wonderful place to just hang out and enjoy the water views, humingbirds, and the small town happenings. Yes! We recommend it and will go back again.

We just returned home from spending our anniversary at the Nob Hill B&B in St. Helens. We stayed in the Casa Blanca room, although I feel calling it a “room” doesn’t give it justice. It is more like a beautiful apartment. The décor is so pretty and well appointed, Tana has an obvious talent for decorating. Breakfast was delicious, and we appreciate the use of all organic ingredients. We felt so welcomed and immediately “at home” with Tana. The whole experience could not be topped, loved every minute of it and we will definitely be back.
