welcome to Quality Inn portland blogThe Miracle of a Million Lights
A visit to Portland wouldn't be complete without stopping in at Victorian Belle, a historical mansion built back in the 19th century. You're welcome to step inside this charming old-world home and journey back in time to an entirely different era. This popular attraction offers a unique glimpse of how people in the Pacific Northwest lived back in 1885, a freeze-frame of American history.
Each December, the expansive home transforms into a dazzling Christmas display, lending the landmark its famous nickname - "The Miracle of a Million Lights". Take a tour of the ornately decorated house and lushly landscaped grounds around the holidays, and you'll walk around a festive winter wonderland. All 2.5 acres are adorned in twinkling lights, a spectacular sight the whole family will enjoy. Get filled with the spirit of the season by seeing this decked-out display for yourself.
As you enter the interior of this inviting space, you'll encounter ten Christmas trees dressed in unique ornaments and decorations. Make your way from room to room to admire one-of-a-kind vintage heirlooms and antiques from the Victorian period. While you're here, you can enjoy homemade apple cider, freshly baked holiday cookies, and other refreshments. Adding to the merry holiday ambiance, local choirs, groups, and talented artists will entertain crowds with live music performances. Be sure to check out the gift shop to find thoughtful gifts you can bring back home.
