Well, maybe it's haunted, but I love the stories about each object. There's a piano-like instrument in one of the upstairs rooms that's interesting to check out and also realize that, for the ladies living there at the time, though they

I have been here on a random tour, for a picnic with a view and when they have had their Christmas and Carousel Horse displays. It's always a beautiful site and very well maintained and you tend to see something new every time. The view is amazing and the mansion takes you away to a different time and class. Just beautiful and a must see in a Portland tour!

About Pittock Mansion in SW Portland, OR-
There are rumors that every old home just about everywhere has its' ghosts, especially the larger the house. This is a beautiful home and the overall feeling is one of calm and completion. My personal experience as a local sensitive/clairsentient who has visited Pittock Mansion many times times - though not taking the tour until my 4th visit to confirm what I "know" - is this: the 2 sisters' energy lingers as light and joy at the south side on the 2nd floor, they were very happy living here, but there is no male ghost in the middle bedroom - only a photo exists there, and there is a faint but definite energetic "memory imprint"of a baby who died at the north end bedroom upstairs. I can feel the grief, but the baby is not there, nor is the older sister. It is one of the more peaceful homes I have experienced, full of residual energies. But I still want to visit the downstairs, as there feels an heaviness from there, but since they do not allow for tours there, I can only feel the draw to get down there. The other place I feel an heaviness with an unusual history not normally known and told is of the caretaker who lived with his family in the little house below the mansion to the south, esp. 1920-30s. haven't had a chance to check it out yet. If anyone has similar "vibes", I would love to hear about that.
Pittock Mansion is truly a gorgeous home and lovely just for its' own sake - I encourage anyone interested in historical architecture (check out the stairs) to visit, and take a notebook and jot down impressions if you are so inclined to cultivate your own sensitive skills, afterwards you can research the known information of the residents and the home. It is the best way to hone those inner skills.

We were so sadly disappointed at the Holiday decorations. It was downright cheesy and detracted from the elegance of the original decor. There were dolls in the beds and paper crafts hanging everywhere. Cheap looking mannequins standing around looking a bit spooky and outdated. Save your time and money and visit any other time to really see the mansion without the terrible and cheap looking decorations. The grounds are spectacular!

Not only does the Pittock Mansion have the best view of Portland, it is the perfect place to propose. I would know. I proposed to my girlfriend last Friday, May 11th, 2007 (she said yes!), inside this beautifully preserved and restored home. To make things even better, the staff were very kind and accommodating--they even brought out champagne for us--and were able to help plan the event with me. So, if you are looking to propose, or just want to visit a place that demands the beauty and specialness of young, and timeless, love, do not miss the Pittock Mansion.

We took the wildwood trail which was about a five mile hike both ways. It was a nice trail by a stream and cool even in the summer heat. You can drive up to the mansion as well. The grounds were beautiful and the house was amazing on the outside. It was closed on the day we went but I would go back again for the tour. It is nice to sit in the garden and take in the view of the city. Hike or drive both are fun for the day!

This is a very beautiful place overlooking the city. Great place for pictures or weddings. Also a neat old building to look through with lots of art and antique furniture. Lock your car though! The neighborhood isn't the best. Nice picnic area and outdoor restrooms if you are there after hours too.

A visit to the Pittock Mansion is to escape to the past and grasp the elegant lifestyle of Portland's privileged, but active wealthy class. The restored mansion is decorated with period furnishings, china, and selected household items. Strolling the grounds slows down the pace of life, as you move among the shrubbery or look out of the city of Portland. A visit to the Mansion at the holidays is very special, as it is lovingly theme-decorated.

This gorgous mansion in NW Portland is a neat place to take the family for a visit to get a glimpse into what life was like in Portland around the turn of the last century.

The grounds are really nice and wonderful to wander around in - they have great views of the city as well as the different mountains.

You have to pay admission to tour the actual house, so it's not something you'll probably want to do on every visit (the grounds are free!), but it's worth a tour at least one. Henry Pittock was the owner of the Oregonian, so he lived a nice lifestyle to say the least and the house reflects that.

In the winter months, it's a little chilly to stroll around the grounds, but they decorate the house beautifully and that is something the kids really enjoy - very festive and holiday looking!

This approximately 100 year-old mansion offers probably the best views in the NW section of Portland. Situated at 900 feet elevation and surrounded by hiking trails, on a clear day you have a panoramic view of the city framed by Mt St Helens, Mt Rainier, Mt Hood, and Mt. Adams. You can wander the grounds for free, but a tour of the mansion itself -- once owned by the publisher of The Oregonian newspaper shortly before his death-- is $6 for adults.

Pittock Mansion in Portland is a great historical place to visit. The Mansion is beautiful and restored to its original dcor. There are three out of the four floors you can explore, be sure to have some time set aside as it is very interesting. There is a fee to tour the mansion. The view from their grounds is beautiful and it is a nice place to spend some time.

This place is pretty cool, to hang out on an easy day. Refurnished like the orginal establishment of the Pittock family, you get to walk around in an old-fashioned house belonging to the founders of the Oregonian, and the many travelling paths in Washington Park. There is a quaint little gift shop outside, and admission is only $5. If you are interested in the history of Portland, and you like huge houses, you should visit this one.

PROS: cheap, interesting, beautiful, decorated on the holidays
CONS: not as big as you think it will be.

The Pittock Mansion is a historic site in Portland that should not be missed. Not only was I in awe of the building and grounds, but the view is TO DIE FOR! On a clear day you can see all of Portland and the surrounding mountains. My sons loved it because it reminded them of someplace a ghost might like to live. It was worth the trouble to find it - check it out.

I have not been here in a few years, but I still remeber how wonderful this place is! If you are ever in the West Hills and have some free time, do check it out! Henery Pittock, he founded the Oregonian, built this wonderful home in the early 1900's. It is a combonation of many different styles. Very unique and wonderful to explore!

Don't forget to bring a camera when going to marvel in the beauty and history of Pittock Mansion. Symbolizing the growth of Portland, the estate houses antique furnishings and fine arts and provides a sweeping view of the city itself. The front desk clerk is kind and informative. It's a bit spendy admission but well worth ONE trip through.

The Pittock Mansion is a must-see for tourists. The lovely mansion sits atop the west hills with a wonderful view of downtown Portland, Mount St. Helens and Mt. Hood. Tours are available and there is a small gift shop on the grounds. During the Christmas season, the house is decorated with a different theme and it is great fun to tour and see the creativity.

PROS:
CONS: parking is limited
