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.

  • Easy to find with signs guiding you to the top whether you hike or drive it. I especially like the fun/random facts along the side driving to the top. Nice sized parking lot with an additional lot for busier times. I unfortunately did not go into the house, you have to pay a fee to get in the house but you can still walk around the property and check out the amazing view of the city. Definitely a must if visiting Portland!
  • Pretty gorgeous views of Portland and the surrounding landscape on a clear day...only a short jaunt up the hill from downtown or neighboring suburbs and well worth the visit. Even if you don't pay to go inside the mansion for some intriguing history, visiting the grounds is enjoyable enough. Parking nearby on site in two lots, free surprisingly. Beautiful place to take visiting friends/family or to just go check out yourself! Best, ~S
  • Beautiful view of the Portland skyline from here. You can also take a nice walk on the long hiking trails. The trail is a total of I think 30 miles long! Luckily, there are many parking and road access points along it so you don't have to backtrack or walk a 30 mile trail if that's not your thing; definitely not mine! :) Overall I highly recommend visiting!
  • Decided to come to Pittock on a whim and it was well worth it! The entry fee to enter the mansion was reasonable considering the amount of work needed to keep this huge beautiful place looking and running as well as it is. Incredible views from the grounds and a very fun walk through tour showcases Portland history in an authentic setting. The Pittock Mansion showcases what Portland is all about from its people, scenery, architecture and way of life from way back.
  • Coolest place. I love old mansions with a good story and history. This place is the crown of Portland Oregon as I refer to it. The views of the city from the backyard are spectacular. The mansion itself is a work of art and a definite peace of food for the eyes. The staff are friendly and helpful and quite knowledgeable. There is a grand piano there that people can play on if they ask the people working for permission. Parking is a little tight so i would recommend going earlier before sunset to avoid this business
