Don't go at Xmas, if you go at all
Dec 2021 • Couples
The shell of the mansion, it's history, and most of all, the setting in Washington Park may be worth seeing if you have nothing else to do. But since the furnishings and interior were ruined years ago. it's been replaced with non -original antiques. At Xmas, all of the rooms have been slathered with cheezy, kitchy Christmas displays. It was quite dreadful.

Worth a visit.

We were looking for something to do while in Portland for a couple of days and decided to check out this mansion. We were glad we did. The inside is beautifully furnished and interesting, and the grounds and views from the lawn are absolutely stunning. It’s a great place to take in a view of the city and the autumn leaves.

On a Clear Day
Oct 2021 • Friends
We didn’t go in the mansion but I met my cousin there, who lived in Portland for several years. The grounds were beautiful but it was the view of Portland with Mt. Hood off in the distance that we were there to see. It didn’t disappoint! We were so happy the day was clear & the sun was out. Next time I visit Portland I will check out the mansion.

Beautiful Mansion furnished with lovely antiques!
Sep 2021
The Pittock Mansion requested that we reserve and purchase our tickets online prior to showing up, but that was not necessary. It was a pretty ride up the mountain to the mansion and we took a self-guided tour that took us approximately one hour to complete. There was quite a lot of written information about the home and the people who lived in it. The tour was Covid-19 safe as could be, with one way passages throughout and 6 foot designations between people. Afterwards, since it was a sunny day, we enjoyed a tour of the gardens as well as a picturesque view of Mount Hood.

Truly delightful, lovely home and excellent overlook view of Portland

The house has a number of interesting and beautiful architectural styles. The house is spacious enough to spread out visitors and keep socially distant. Most of the furnishings are donated period pieces (not the originals), but all are quite nicely done.

This was a treat to tour. Such innovations for the time it was built and beautiful woodwork and decorations. Worth a visit.

Beautiful Small Mansion
Jul 2021
This mansion is on the small side but beautiful none the less. The $10 entrance fee was well worth. The real star of the property is the location, way up from the city on a hilltop. The views are spectacular, and on a clear day you can see Mt. Rainer. The roses on the estate are lovely, and there are trails to hike on. This can be a full day excursion, the Test Rose Garden and Japanese Gardens are really close by. We took an Uber, no bus goes this far.

Beautifully preserved/restored grand mansion

Very beautiful and interesting mansion made even more so thanks to a well marked self-guided tour. Beautiful grounds with great views of the city from above.

very good - almost excellent but for some bizarre decorating choices clunky covid protocols that interfere with pacing
Jul 2021
Fascinating house design, spectacular gardens and view, generally informative displays/signage. It is worth the tour and the setting is spectacular. That said, you proceed from one roped off area to another and sometimes get a livestock through the chute feeling which might be part covid and part that this is a very popular attraction. Caretaker's house was supposedly open and would have loved to see it as it plays an integral part in the family history - but it was locked. Rooms sometimes decorated by interior designers' (term used loosely) interpretations of xyz 'period' that has nothing to do with the house itself nor how it would have been decorated c.1910. Interesting history of Vanport on basement level - a story I did not know. With popularity of the place they probably do have limit access as is done, but compared with, say, the Overholser in OKC, the Bingham-Waggoner in Independence or Salisbury House in Des Moines, you get a much less thorough experience here.

A MUST SEE!
Jul 2021
Pittock Mansion is one of the two things I will remember about my recent trip to Portland. An amazing historical site with an equally amazing history. The views from the garden are spectacular and the forest trails are worth the effort to explore.
