My husband and I spent four days at the Carleton in late August. Buddy and Cindy do a fine job of creating an inviting atmosphere. The furnishings are lovely, the décor is classic, and it is a warm home to find your way back to. What is amazing too, is the walls are thick and we hardly heard a peep out of the other guests though the Inn was full the entire time we stayed there, which is unusual for a B&B. The bed was comfortable, the room was well done, and we slept well. The location is perfectly located, as it is no more than 10 minutes to get anywhere from where you might want to go via car, or walking downtown is about 15 minutes.
Cindy is definitely the heartbeat of this hotel, and orchestrates the delivery of the most delicious breakfasts we've ever had in a B&B! She is a bubbly start to your morning, full of passion for Portland and great suggestions on where to go! In addition, the piano playing during breakfast from the talented young man who lives next door is a fabulous touch! He is a gifted singer/actor and Boston Conservatory graduate, and we had the pleasure of a having an entertaining evening of "Les Miserables" performed in his Toy Theatre...an awe inspiring moment we won't forget! Ask Cindy to help you arrange your own private showing. He has many different musicals to choose from. Staying at the Inn on Carleton was the highlight of our trip to Maine; you won't find a more friendly, delicious, and entertaining spot than the Carleton!
