    I used to live in East TN and loved visiting the Biltmore during Christmastime; since I can’t go there, I’d love to check out Pittock all decked out!

    • NicoleDelamer November 29, 2016 at 2:21 pm #

      I would love to visit Pittock Mansion over the holidays when it is all decked out. I have lived here in the Portland area for eleven years and haven’t been yet. The festive beauty would be a wonderful event!

      A definite way to get into the Christmas spirit

    • Kathleen Bagwell December 3, 2016 at 8:03 pm #

      Nearly half a century ago I was a child in Portland and I dreamed of going into the Pittock Mansion as we would drive by. But growing up working class in a family of eight that never came to be. Now all these years later as I return each Christmas to see my parents I wish I could take them to the Mansion and dinner as a good memory of our childhood and the parents who made so many sacrifices for their children.

    I’ve never been to the Pittock Mansion – this sounds like an excellent reason to go.

  22. Darris November 29, 2016 at 12:27 pm #

  25. Maggie November 29, 2016 at 12:40 pm #

    Couldn’t think of a better place to celebrate the wonders of the holidays. No other place offers a more breathtaking view or revealing glimpse of Portland’s past than The Pittock Mansion. Would love to be inspired at this time of uncertainty by hearing the local musicians in the Music Room adding their holiday cheer !!

  26. Lance November 29, 2016 at 12:42 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to go

  27. Courtney November 29, 2016 at 12:43 pm #

  33. Kamela Kern November 29, 2016 at 1:39 pm #

    I did security outside of Pittock Mansion for a long time, but I’ve never been inside. It always looked so beautiful, but stood out above all else during Christmas. I love Christmas, so it only seems logical that this be when I see the inside! Thanks for the chance.

  34. Tonya November 29, 2016 at 2:16 pm #

  40. Irene Dale November 29, 2016 at 5:47 pm #

    I’d love to SW a big house decorated for Christmas, since I live in a 600 sq ft condo. And I have heard they make it very easy for handicapped people.

  41. Hannah November 29, 2016 at 6:18 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to see the Pittock mansion at Christmas. Never been inside.

  42. Dave G. November 29, 2016 at 6:32 pm #

  43. JazzDad November 29, 2016 at 7:11 pm #

  78. Judy December 2, 2016 at 10:16 pm #

    I adore the Pittock Mansion! Walking through this beautiful placet and the time period it’s built, somehow makes me feel closer to my Ancestors.

  79. Victoria Gantz December 2, 2016 at 11:17 pm #

  80. Felicia Olmeta-Schult December 3, 2016 at 10:27 am #

  81. Ryan Perisin December 3, 2016 at 12:47 pm #

    This would be a wonderful treat to share with my wife and visiting parents! Happy Xmas!

  86. David December 5, 2016 at 8:34 am #

    What better time to go to Pittock Mansion than during the holidays? :-)

  87. Abbey Rode December 5, 2016 at 8:40 am #

    We have never been. I sure could use some holiday cheer!

  88. April B December 5, 2016 at 8:47 am #

    I would love to take my mom, she took me when I was a child (40+ years ago). I have been back but she hasn’t.

  89. Jan Decker December 5, 2016 at 8:57 am #

    I would LOVE to win … but I live too far away to make use of the tickets (Pennsylvania). But I am enjoying sights & sounds of Pittock Mansion at Christnastime on a wonderful obsolete DVD. It’s awesome of your community & volunteers to keep the mansion open and decorated like this, and to dress it up differently each year. If I lived out there, I’d make it an annual tradition to visit.

  90. Sundi Pierce December 5, 2016 at 9:01 am #

    Just moved here from Florida and would love to see the mansion for the first time.

  91. Emily Hartman December 5, 2016 at 9:23 am #

  92. Lisa December 5, 2016 at 10:13 am #

    I’ll bet the Pittock Mansion is absolutely beautiful with all of the Christmas decorations. Would love to see it.

  93. Jen December 7, 2016 at 9:18 pm #

  96. Jill December 10, 2016 at 7:28 am #

  97. Ken December 12, 2016 at 2:37 pm #
