I cannot say enough great things about this place. I am so glad we stayed here and would recommend it to anyone visiting Portland. Where do I begin??
The hosts Dana and Greg were delightful and more than accommodating. Dana emailed me back before we even arrived in Portland with recommendations for restaurants not to be missed when I asked for advice. They also helped us while we were in town and did some research online for a brew fest we had interest in the minute we asked about it. Also helped steer us in the direction of Ogunquit to visit one day and we had a wonderful time! They were beyond friendly and social during breakfast. They always asked how we were and what we had planned for the day as well as being mindful of the fact we were eating breakfast and letting us enjoy.
The room was amazing. Room #4 is very spacious and all around lovely. The bathroom is not huge, but it is plenty big and very nice. There are 4 large windows total you can open and air conditioning as well. There is a large dresser and closet if you need to hang anything up. There were also 2 wine glasses and a bottle opener in the room every day along with 2 small bottles of water left for us each day. We made use of all of these! So nice.
The common areas were lovely and decorated so interesting. There is a small guest refrigerator in the common area and you can use it as you please. We stored a bottle of wine and 4 pack of beer in there and just took as we needed. They also have a book on the coffee table that lists several of the restaurants in Old Port and close to the Inn with copies of their menus, phone numbers and directions to each from the Inn. We thought this was so nice and definitely made use of it. There are nice touches everywhere-Hershey's kisses and candies sitting in bowls, cookies out in the afternoon one day. Just all around lovely.
And last but not least......breakfast. WOW........just wow! I don't even know where to begin. Every day I said to my husband, "That was my favorite." And then the next day I would say the very same thing. Each dish was so amazingly delicious in it's own way. I loved every single one. My husband doesn't really eat much fruit-he devoured this fruit. I despise grapefruit-I ate every single bite. Dana's breakfasts deliver-the woman can cook! I took a picture of every single thing-edible works of art. The dining room was quaint-there is one large table with 8 chairs and then 3 single tables with 2 chairs each. It was so lovely to sit at the small table by the windows and enjoy those one-of-a-kind breakfasts. They also serve coffee, 2 types of juice and vast selections of teas. Dana's cookbook is on display in the breakfast area and you can feel free to sit and read through it while you eat.
In summary-don't even think about staying anywhere else in Portland. This is the place to be. And stay as many nights as you can! I hope someday we get back to Maine so we can experience this place again!
All the best from South Dakota!
