We loved the Flavel House and its stables. Well preserved but not overly so, interesting and gives a fine insight into life in days gone by. Thank you!

The Flavel House is a well restored mansion built by Captain Flavel in the late 1800's. Period pieces of furniture enhance the touring experience. The yard includes a giant sequoia and other unique trees and shrubs.

Lots of history in this home. I enjoyed learning about George Flavel and his role in early Astoria. Beautiful home.

The Flavel House is certainly worth touring. It has been lovingly maintained and holds charm in every room. The little lady working there was a wealth of information and quite charming too. Not expensive and worth the time.

No not without walking. The trolley runs along the water front and this house is up a few blocks.
