Built in 1885 for Captain George Flavel, Astoria's first millionaire, Flavel House is a one of the best-preserved examples of Queen Anne architecture in the Pacific Northwest. Outside, this stunning mansion boasts a decorative exterior, three-story octagon tower, impressive balconies and long verandas. Inside, the 11,600-square-foot home features elegant woodwork, stained-glass windows, and in-laid hardwood floors. Throughout the house are elegant furnishings, and art and décor typical of the Victorian age. Six unique fireplaces grace the home and feature different imported tiles from around the world, elaborate hand-carved mantels and patterned fireboxes. You're invited to sit and relax in the parlor over a cup of tea and tasty scones.
Later, you'll have the opportunity to visit the restored Carriage House Gift Shop and purchase a souvenir of your visit before returning to the pier.
The visit to Flavel House requires climbing approximately 30 stairs; this historic mansion is not fitted with ramps. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Transportation is by non-air-conditioned school bus.
