Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2014

we had a wonderful stay at the inn and really loved our room. The inn is decorated beautifully and yet is still a comfortable place to stay. The garden in the back was a haven for us. Leo recommended a restaurant around the hotel called le petit jacqueline which was just perfect and a wonderful dinner experience. Breakfast in the morning was superb .... we will be back.

My wife and I were traveling south from Bar Harbor and wanted to experience the Portland food scene. We only had one night, but found this adorable Brownstone walkup B&B. Leo was wonderful as was their assistant who showed us to our room. Our time at the Inn was delightful. The breakfast in the morning was accompanied by a local piano player who popped in for a few South Pacific tunes. What a treat.

Our stay here at the inn was accommodating in every way! We were so impressed with the staff and the recommendations they gave us for a lovely dinner which was in walking distance. Our room was beyond beautiful! Our breakfast were so delicious...we had lobster eggs benedict. Another day we had French toast topped with an apple compote. We are total foodies and loved every meal we had here!! Downtown shopping area is in walking distance. We are definitely coming back!

We stayed at the Inn on Carleton 3 nights, June 27 - June 29 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). The rooms were very comfortable, charming and well maintained. The breakfasts were delicious and gourmet quality. The location was perfect for us. It is a short 10 - 15 minute walk to the port area. Leo and Patty had only been the innkeepers for 3 weeks when we stayed there, but are doing a terrific job. They were helpful, gracious, friendly and eager to make your stay at the Inn and in Portland a memorable experience. Definitely a great find in a B&B and worth return visits.

Leo was very welcoming and helpful. The inn was beautiful, located in a nice area that was very walkable to downtown. The breakfast was fruit and yogurt to start that was fresh and delicious followed by croissant french toast with lemon cream cheese filling that was also excellent. Water and snacks were made available which was a nice touch. The room was clean, had a nice style, and the bed was very comfortable.

This is a good place to stay if staying in the Portland downtown area. It's a much better value than staying in the much more expensive downtown hotels. This B&B is under new ownership very recently. The new owners are friendly and are doing a great job. It's a 5 minute walk to Congress St. and about a 5 minute drive to the Old Port area. Breakfast was very good as well.

The Inn is a bit of a walk into town, but with all of the food Portland had to offer, that walk was needed! Great breakfast every day, kind friendly hosts.
There are some loud neighborhood birds to deal with, so if the air is off and you are a light sleeper that may be a problem. For is it was fine as long as we ran the AC.
