The Amanda Cole Room:

The Victorian Belle Mansion was built for Amanda Cole as a gift from her husband, David C Cole. Originally Amanda's bedroom, the windows and balcony boast expansive views of the property toward the Columbia River and Mt St Helens.

The Eliza Barchus Room:

Eliza Barchus was a prolific Pacific Northwest landscape painter who lived most of her life in Portland. In 1971, twelve years after her death at the age of 102, the Oregon Legislative Assembly named her "The Oregon Artist". All of the landscapes in the Eliza Barchus Room are original oil paintings.

The Winnie Holgate Room:

Winnie Cole Holgate was the only child of Amanda and David Cole. The Winnie Holgate Room was her childhood bedroom. This beautiful space overlooks the fountain courtyard and estate gardens.

The Parlor:

Original carved hardwood, Povey Brothers stained glass, and a beautiful view of the North Gardens make the front parlor a welcoming and open space.

The Fireside Room:

Soft light, rainbows from the Povey stained glass, and a beautiful fireplace hearth create a warm atmosphere in the Fireside Room.
