A wonderful warm visit with Jason and Diane

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful visit with Jason and Diane. They have a very funky place - an old School House converted into their home, B&B, and eventually retreat destination. Jason and Diane both were very inviting, great company, and full of enthusiasm for their home, the region around Portland, and life in general. We stayed three nights, spending time in Portland one day, and taking a day-trip to Mount St Helens the second. The scones and pie were delicious, we would definitely stay again.

Unique and chock full of vintage charm

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home in this comfy converted schoolhouse. The mellow drive along the Columbia River into Portland was a nice switch from the I-5 traffic scrum. Jason and Diane were both genial hosts, and we're in awe of all they have done to make Deer Island Manor a great home away from home!

We knew we would be happy but we had no idea how amazing and unique this place was! We stayed in the suite and it was definitely amazing. The bed was a zillion times more comfortable then at home! Breakfast was to the nines and I hope we can go back!

A gem of a place to stay! (just outside of Portland)

  • 5 of 5

Historic Deer Island Manor is a gem of a place to stay and just outside of Portland!! I was in Portland for a week of business meetings and wanted a different experience something that wasn't the typical Portland hotel room for my week long of meetings and projects etc. I found Historic Deer Island Manor and emailed with Diane about logistics and details and booked the room.

I have to say that the accommodations exceeded my expectations in every way!! First of all, Diane and Jason are terrific hosts and we so kind to wait up late the first night to make sure I arrived in a nice way even though I have a late arriving flight to the airport and then had travel time. Next is the yummy breakfasts. And the room was perfect too - new king bed and great antiques throughout! Comfy and private and excellent WIFI which I need for work every night and early AM.

It is rare to find a place that is so comfortable and quiet when traveling. I look forward to returning and hope to stay in touch with Diane and Jason -they are great people and I feel like I made new friends.

Also... There is a great place for dinner (Dockside) in St. Helens less than 10 mins away... and Portland was about a 40 min drive and never had traffic during rush hour.. (completely amazing!)
