“Great personal touches”
Reviewed 11 November 2011

I'm so glad we decided to go the B&B route on our weekend getaway to Portland. We could have
stayed at a big hotel, but the Morrill Mansion had so much more character! The only room available
was the Morrill Suite-which sleeps three, but we were glad we booked it. The extra room provided a
great spot to hook up the computer or sit and read by the window. The bed was very comfortable, and the antique furnishings made you feel like you were back in the 1880's.
It's the little things that made our stay special- the treats in the room, the mini-fridge with bottled water which came in handy after our morning run. Also, the common room always had coffee, tea,
hot chocolate and goodies ready for the taking. (You have to have the woopie pie!) Breakfast was awesome-lobster/egg souffle, raspberry custard, healthy grain cereals, fresh fruit...yum!
Morrill Mansion is about a 20 min walk into town. If you opt to drive, parking garages charged $3.00
for the first hour, $2.00 after that. If you get into town early during the day, you may have luck finding a parking meter. But the walk into town is nice. Beautiful neighborhood-I would love to read up the history of some of these homes! Dave has a great listing of recommended restaurants. From Portland Pie company to Ribolita, the food was awesome!

We stayed there last in May 2011 as part of an anniversary getaway. We could not believe all of the amenities. The mini fridge was stocked with water and there was more available if needed. Chocolate treats were in the room as well. The library on the 2nd floor has tons of DVDs, board games, and home baked snacks, which we devoured at every opportunity. I was concerned about the walk to downtown, but it didn't take long at all and the neighborhood was charming. The breakfast was absolutely incredible. The lobster souffle was amazing, but I had to warn my husband that I cannot cook like that, so he'd better enjoy it while he could. Plenty of tea choices for the non coffee drinkers. David, the owner, is very helpful and sees to every detail. I would recommend this place and stay there again in a heartbeat.

We booked this at the last minute and were so lucky to get a beautiful room for 2 nights.(The Maguire Room)

David was lovely - really welcoming and helpful. He sent us to a brilliant restaurant that had a great atmospher and served the best meal we had on our 2 week holiday.

The b&B was in a good location for walking into Portland town.

I won't spend any longer telling you about the wonerful house but advise you to look at the review by susaninpdx as she sums it all up perfectly.

We would love to go again.Thank you David.

Room Tip: Go - and take any room - they all looked great!

We stayed here four nights while visiting our son in the Portland area. What a find!!! Spotless, comfy, cozy rooms with amazing breakfasts. The cider and baked goodies in the afternoon were extra special. Dave was gracious and helpful. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: all of the rooms looked great with some larger than others.

I've been staying in B&B's, both in the USA and in Europe, for about 35 years, and have found many, many extremely nice ones. Now, against all odds, I've found the perfect one. Needless to say, the Morrill Mansion has all the usual comforts you'd expect from a five-star inn, so I won't waste space listing them. It's everything they offer above and beyond the usual five-star features that's special. For example, there's a wastepaper basket and tissues in both the bedroom and the bathroom; there's a freezer filled with plastic bags containing just the right amount of ice for the ice bucket in your room--you just pick one up on your way to your room and dump it into your ice bucket; there's a coffee/tea setup on each floor; there's an excellent afternoon snack of homemade cookies and cider; there's a comfy reading chair with a lap throw and excellent reading light. The entire Victorian mansion is immaculately clean, and David, the owner, makes sure that there's always coffee in the pot, cookies on the plate, etc. etc. And, to top it off, he cooks superb breakfasts! I almost want to keep this to myself, but that wouldn't be fair to David.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the Back Cove room, on the third floor, but I suspect they're all excellent choices.
