Step back in time with a visit to the elegant Victorian Astoria Flavel Home built in 1885 by Captain George Flavel, a Columbia River bar pilot and the area's first millionaire. Situated in a park-like setting that covers an entire city block, the Flavel House is a magnificent example of Queen Anne style architecture with period furnishings and artwork.

A short transfer from the pier brings you to this beautiful Victorian mansion that has been returned to its original form by experts in historic restoration. Its decorative exterior, with hipped roof, balconies and verandas, is distinguished by a fourth-cupola used by Captain Flavel and his wife to watch the river traffic. As you enjoy your walk through this historic home with its 14-foot ceilings and elegant woodwork, you will discover furnishings and décor typical of a century ago. Other fine examples of the wood worker's crafting are the six hand-carved fireplace mantels, all carved from different hardwoods.

When your tour of the home is completed, you can relax in the parlor and be treated to some delicious tea and scones. Before returning to the pier, you will also have some time to shop in the adjacent Carriage House.

Please note: This tour includes moderate walking and a flight of stairs to negotiate. It is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair and those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Casual, weather-appropriate clothing and comfortable, flat walking shoes are suggested.
