We've stayed in many B and B's and Inn on Carleton is certainly one of the very best. We were so happy to have been able to stay here recently. Old homes like this, lovingly restored and expertly decorated, are a pleasure to visit. Combine that with the excellent service from Buddy and Cindy and one becomes spoiled very quickly! They were so warm, welcoming, and helpful. I honestly don't think I have ever met an innkeeper/hostess as happy and bubbly as Cindy. Her sunny disposition cant help but make one feel fantastic! Buddy was so friendly and knowledgeable about area attractions, restaurants,etc.
Our stay was made even more fun by the fact that we stayed in 3 different rooms; not by our request but by minor scheduling issues the inn had. We were more than OK with this. We were booked in Room 4 for two nights. We found this to be the quietest room. We were in Room 6 for one night. It was definitely the largest room, but could hear folks in adjoining room and also heard typical "city" noises for a while. Things seemed to quiet down by 11PM or so. Our last night was spent in Room 2. It was a lovely room but bathroom was the smallest of,the 3 rooms. It could also use a ceiling fan. It's best feature was the very comfortable bed. Although we found a few "dust bunnies" in the rooms, they were basically very clean.
The breakfasts here were very good and served on time. We loved the coffee--delicious! It was noted that all guest requests for breakfast choices were met. We also appreciated the snacks, cookies, water available at all times.
We stayed in 3 different B and Bs during our tour of Maine and this was the best one; Cindy and Buddy made our stay so memorable. We would recommend this inn to others and would stay here again.

This B&B is great. The innkeepers Buddy and Cindy are sooo welcoming. The rooms are very nice and quiet. The breakfast was delicious and we even had live piano playing during breakfast which was amazing. Thanks for that!
The location is pretty quiet and in walking distance to downtown. There are lots of nice restaurants not far away.

The rave reviews on TripAdvisor are well deserved, and don't seem to have gone to Cindy or Buddy's heads. They are still very welcoming.
Beds were comfortable, rooms well appointed, water hot and plentiful. Breakfast will remain the highlight of the stay with a selection of Granola, eggs as you like them or special. We only stayed 2 nights, but both specials were super.
Cindy's tips on places to visit and eat were right on.
As close to perfect as you'll get.

This B&B is fantastic. Our room was lovely, beautifully decorated and very clean. It was quiet and we had a very restful and peaceful night. Buddy and Cindy are extremely welcoming. The food is delicious... The shortbread at tea time was very more-ish, we kept going back for more (very naughty)! And breakfast was extremely yummy too. The top reviews on tripadvisor are very well deserved as we really couldn't pick fault with this lovely B&B, it was perfect

Room Tip: Room 3 is the biggest and is set away from the others so it is very quiet and almost feels like it's own suite

A very quaint B&B in a great location within walking distance to downtown. Buddy is a great host--extremely personable, knowledgeable and willing to make your stay comfortable in every respect. The Inn is well appointed and in great condition--very comfortable bed.
