Pittock Mansion, Portland

4.5
Nestled in the hills and commanding a wonderful view of the city, Pittock Mansion is a window into Portland’s affluent past. The 22-room chateau with surrounding gardens was built in 1909 for Henry Pittock, a successful publisher, pioneer, businessman, and politician, and his wife Georgiana, a skilled fundraiser, philanthropist, and the founder of the Portland Rose Festival. After the couple passed away, the house went through a period of dilapidation until the City of Portland acquired it. Today, you can tour the fully restored home. Take in the interior's large collection of vintage furniture and artwork, as well as some of the most innovative technical solutions of the period. On a nice day, you can have a picnic in the gardens and enjoy the view of the city skyline. Keep an eye out for ghosts who are rumored to haunt the house.

    Beautiful house to explore. $10 for adults to enter Small parking lot, but free to park. Roads to get there are a bit narrow (in case you're bringing g a group of people in a larger van). Self-guided tours are available, but guided tours happen a few times a day and are free. Pittock Mansion is up on a hill with just incredible views, which you can enjoy even if you don't go inside.

    What's great about this place is you don't need to pay to enter the grounds area. Come here to read a book under a tree, have a family picnic, or people watch even. Great views all around and hiking trails. Overall a nice, clean environment with lots to do.

    I would have had a lot more fun on this excursion if the house were a little less crowded. It's kind of my own fault for coming on Memorial Day weekend, but I wish the furniture were better arranged to accommodate larger swells of people. The period furniture is amazing though and the view is unbeatable. Come on a sunny day for multiple mountain views.

    The mansion is a really cool place to visit. It has very cutting edge technology and style for its time period. Some rooms have a couple pieces of original furniture but others are period or antique rooms. The views of Portland from the house and backyard are awe inspiring.

    Definitely worth checking out of you're visiting Portland; this was my first time in Portland and I'm glad I went. It's a self-guided tour but the staff/volunteers have done an excellent job creating informative displays for each room. Very cool to see the arrangement of each room and get an idea how people lived during that period. Excellent view of the city as well.
