Reviewed 20 April 2014

Everything was wonderful. Buddy and Cindy are outstanding hosts. Each breakfast was delicious and they made sure we had everything we needed. Location was perfect. We could walk easily to the old port district, and we felt safe walking at night. First class service. Hope to return in the future!!!

We just got home after a three night get away at the Inn on Carleton. This is a superb B & B...we were greeted by Buddy. He made us feel right at home immediately and helped us with luggage to our room. From that first moment on, we were treated like family. Cindy greeted us at breakfast time and "Oh, what a breakfast"! We had a delicious breakfast all three mornings with Cindy's charming personality to greet us each morning. Our rooms were magnificent, location great, hospitality exceptional....not to mention the cookies/brownies each afternoon, along with other treats, water and hot tea available all the time. What can I say....this will be a place that we definitely come back to!

Room Tip: We loved room 6....However, I have my eye on room 1 for next time!

I stayed three nights at the Inn on Carleton and it was amazing. Cindy, Buddy and the staff were friendly and very welcoming. I absolutely loved my room, #5, and breakfast was delicious. I plan on returning asap.

My fiance and I booked a stay for our wedding. Buddy, Cindy and the staff went above and beyond any expectation and helped make our stay an experience of a lifetime. I would recommend a stay for anyone traveling to Portland.

The inn is beautifully decorated, with great attention to detail. We stayed mid-April in room 2 which was cozy and spotless. Buddy recommended a local restaurant for dinner that was fantastic. Both Buddy and Cindy made us feel right at home!

We loved the Inn on Carleton. From the public rooms to our rooms and bathrooms everything was impeccably clean. Furnishings in public rooms and our room were lovely. Breakfast was delicious. Having tea or coffee and freshly baked cookies available through out the day was a lovely touch. Buddy, the innkeeper, was welcoming and provided excellent answers to various questions we had about restaurants and where to find various things in Portland -- directions too. We would definitely stay at the Inn on Carleton again.

Stayed here for an anniversary celebration getaway. First time in portland. The outside appearance of the inn is stunning, well kept, clean and updated but still with its old class intact. To our surprise, buddy greeted us with champagne, seemed genuinely interested in where we came from and was just incredibly friendly and accommodating. We instantly felt at home and comfortable. The inside is decked out in antique grandfather clocks, vintage floral wallpaper, beautiful wood floors, calming and warming colors, and marble fireplaces. Although the pictures are beautiful, they don't do this place justice. Our room exceeded expectations and breakfast was also fantastic. Plenty of options and you can tell they're cooking with love. Cindy was the other hostess/owner who was incredibly friendly, accommodating and once again seemed genuinely concerned about making sure everything was perfect for us. They also provided guests with nice little amenities such as fresh baked cookies and bottled water. Can't complain about anything or make any suggestions. Will absolutely come back next time in portland! Easily #1
