The house originally was a summer home for the Lytle family, a local lumber baron. The mansion has been restored to period luxury with great detail. The home features a ballroom, formal dining room, large parlor with grand piano, sweeping staircase, European chandeliers, magnificent leaded glass windows, gilt-gold ceilings, groomed landscape, circular drive, and water fountain. Portland’s White House is more than just a bed and breakfast. It is a great place for small formal gatherings such as a wedding, family reunion, or other intimate occasion.

Attention to detail include stained glass windows

The stained glass windows were imported from Europe to add authenticity in the renovation. The restoration includes an extensive collection of European and Continental Porcelains as well as many 18th and 19th century oil paintings. Guests can spend time admiring and studying the amazing collections while staying at the house.

Comfortable yet authentic guest rooms

Five guest rooms in the main house and three guest rooms in the Carriage House are available for reservations. Each room is uniquely furnished and spacious with all the amenities for a relaxing night – a comfortable bed, an area to relax, and a dresser for storing clothing instead of living out of the suitcase.

Feather beds, feather pillows and rich linens will guarantee a night of relaxing sleep. All rooms have a private bath, individualized climate control, private phone lines, and wireless internet access.
