Portland Accommodations: The Lion and The Rose
The Lion and The Rose
This rambling but immaculately restored 1906 Victorian in the well-established Northeast Portland Irvington neighborhood could serve as a postcard image of a past era. Convenient to all of Portland and the entire region, this inn is close to the popular shopping and restaurant district along Northeast Broadway, including the Lloyd district. This inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and its decor and atmosphere create a sense of relaxed elegance. Guests have the option of an early continental breakfast or, a bit later, the real thing. Guests are also served an afternoon dessert tea. The grounds include English-style gardens, a gazebo, fountains, and brick pathways. Smoking is permitted on the veranda. All rooms have private baths, and the Rose Room features a queen-size bed and a Jacuzzi. Other rooms offer guests the chance to sleep in an antique Edwardian bed, a flattop canopy bed, or a traditional four-poster bed. Children older than 12 are welcome. Occasionally this inn requires a two-night minimum, especially on weekends and holidays.
