Remarkably similar to the D.C. landmark, the magnificent 1911 Portland's White House is reason enough to visit the city's Northeast Historic Irvington District. The former summer home of lumber baron Robert Lytle has been exquisitely restored by innkeeper Lanning Blanks.
Sparkling European chandeliers, formal dining room, Grand Ballroom, grand staircase, leaded glass windows, gilt-gold ceilings, and trompe l'oeil are only the beginning: the White House features extensive collections of porcelains, 18th and 19th century oils, and a beautiful garden courtyard. A visit here is a visit to the elegance and high style of 100 years ago but with today's relaxed conviviality. AAA
8 rooms, 2 with Spa tubs. Phones, high speed internet, tv with dvd players, wireless internet, in-room massage, gardens. Meetings and weddings.
Gourmet candlelit breakfast; espresso bar. Full-service gourmet catering. Moonstruck Chocolates. Restaurant recommendations to local fine dining.
Treat yourself with a visit to one of the many spas in the area.
Enjoy the advantages of the neighborhood to jog, walk, and shop tax free at fabulous boutiques and Lloyd Center. The Pearl District, NW 23rd Avenue Shops, The International Rose Test Gardens, Japanese gardens, Portland Art Museum, Classical Chinese Gardens, Pittock Mansion, Washington Park are only minutes away. Wine Country, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Hood, the Oregon Coast, the Oregon Gardens and the Columbia Gorge are wonderful day trips.
Just 20 blocks from the Rose Quarter off Broadway at NE 22nd Ave & Hancock.

We have had a most enjoyable stay here. The ambience and breakfasts are delightful. We've stayed in many B&Bs in the US, Canada, and Europe and we feel the Portland's White House is truly one of the best. Thanks for your great care.

"Everything was perfect!"
Thank you for creating a wonderful birthday party for me. Every moment, from the time I entered the door until I left, was a joy! Everything was perfect!
Your home is beautiful, both inside and out! All the TLC and attention to every single detail, from top to bottom, certainly does not go unnoticed... it is spectacular! It is warm and inviting, luxurious yet comfortable, spacious yet intimate, and friendly and happy. You leave nothing undone from the first step into the entry hall until one walks out the front door and steps back into reality!
"I Will Be Back..."
Thank you! Thank you! What a refreshing break from the stale and sterile digs of the Hilton-esque lodgings... this HOME is warm and beautiful... I haven't had such a comfortable rest in ages... I will be back... P.S. Breakfast was fabulous!
