At least from the outside, the huge white columns and circular driveway of Portland's White House evoke the one in D.C., albeit on a smaller scale. Inside, this 1910 Greek Revival mansion (also a National Historic Landmark) is full of crystal chandeliers, oriental rugs, stained-glass windows, and hand-painted wall murals. It's an elegant, decidedly romantic place with attentive service that you'll experience starting first thing every morning, during candlelit breakfasts in the formal dining room. Five guest rooms in the main house and three more in the Carriage House feature antiques, four-poster feather beds and rich linens. Although it's tucked in a quiet corner of the residential Irvington neighborhood, restaurants and shopping are just a few blocks away on NE Broadway, and the innkeepers are happy to help you choose and plan activities and meals.
