The White Oak Villa is a grand Colonial Revival Victorian home in a private neighborhood just off the Portland Peninsula. Enjoy a house filled with original antique woodwork, countless windows, and enough space for entire families to get lost in.
The White Oak Villa is a majestic old house built in 1901 full of beautiful original woodwork and open inviting spaces, with a grand staircase to greet guests inside the front entrance and a sunny enclosed porch that wraps around most of the house. There are multiple living areas for relaxing or socializing, multiple dining areas, and a well-equipped kitchen in case you want to cook during your stay.
The Bay Room is a large bedroom with a queen-size bed featuring organic bedding and tall bay windows that offer a pleasant view of the quiet neighborhood.
Zugang für Gäste
All of the bedrooms are on the second floor of the house, and can be locked for privacy and security. Guests have access to the entire first floor public spaces, which include the kitchen, dining areas, the enclosed porch, and parlors. Guests of the Bay Room have use of the 2nd floor bathroom, which includes a shower and deep soaking tub, or the half bathroom on the 1st floor. Like the bedrooms, the bathrooms have locks for privacy.
The White Oak Villa is a historic home in a private neighborhood in Portland. We expect all guests to simply
1) Respect the House
2) Respect the Other Guests
3) Respect the Neighborhood.
This obviously means do not damage anything in the house (The floors, trim, and other woodwork were installed when William McKinley was president!) and do not take anything from the property that does not belong to you, including food from the kitchen unless you've gotten permission. Remember, other people live here. Be reasonable with noise and clean up after yourself in the public spaces. You are welcome to use the appliances, cookware, and dishes in the kitchen as long as you do not damage or abuse them.
Also note that there is NO SMOKING of any kind on the property.
The owner lives at the Villa and should usually be available for anything you may need. Since he does work a full-time job, though, check-ins should be coordinated ahead of time to ensure someone is there to welcome you in person when you arrive.
There may be other guests staying at the Villa while you are here, or friends of the owner may be hanging out, sharing food, dancing, listening to music, or even playing music. The Villa is a friendly social space, and you are welcome to join us for anything fun that is going on. You can easily expect to run into wonderful friends you've just never met yet. Don't worry, though, if you prefer your alone time, since the private bedrooms are well situated and separated from the public spaces.
