A beautiful home

My husband and I were in Portland only for a night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Heron Haus. The room was spacious, comfortable and quiet - and no lace anywhere!! Breakfast was delicious, and the choice of coffees made it perfect.

Location--Hospitality--History

Location--Hospitality--History—What a find! Our welcoming hosts, Karl and Pam said, “We walk everywhere!” because their turn of the centuryTudor/Craftsman Mansion is located just above trendy 23rd Avenue and below gorgeous Washington Park in the NW (??) section of Portland. We entered Heron Haus from the quiet courtyard, and our first impression was that it seemed very European! Our host Pam showed us to our spacious King sized bedroom suite, showed us how to work the fireplace, and shared names of her favorite local restaurants. We chose the “Elephant Bar” which seemed so Northwest with its vast number of counters, offering nicely prepared food, and beverage choices in an upscale cafeteria setting. At bed time, we delighted in finding both soft and firm pillows for our choice and were pleased to note that besides WIFI, a printer was available for our use. The next morning, after reading one of three different newspapers available in the peaceful book lined library, we enjoyed a delicious citrus salad and fabulously light mushroom and asparagus quiche. In answer to our questions, Pam explained she is a member of the “Slow Food Movement,” and that she and Karl buy all their produce from farmers and make everything “from scratch.” Because of our interest, Pam and her co-host husband Karl, filled us in on the fascinating history of the house built for Frank Warren, an affluent leader in starting Oregon’s Salmon Business. The architect, Joseph Jacoberger, designed hundreds of homes in Portland, as well as the Cathedral! We particularly loved the light evident throughout the B&B as it drifted through the vast number of the leaded glass windows. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Heron Haus, and have recommended it to our son and his family because there is plenty of room for them and their two children in any of the suites.
