Excellent location, large rooms, nice breakfast, nice innkeepers. Room had a ceiling fan so we didn't need AC. Off-street parking was great and we didn't have to move the car, since the inn was walking distance to everything Portland has to offer.

The staff was really helpful, the inn was nice and the breakfast was great. The bed was comfortable and room was big. The only thing I would note is some details were missed such as door in the bathroom was cheap home depot door vs wood with cheap knob. With an amazing house with wood over sized doors and incredible...

After a very long (+12hrs) day of travel I arrived in the late evening welcomed by the smell of warm brownies. My room was clean and cute with a large bed piled with pillows that made me smile from ear to ear. This is a great little B&B with lots of character down to even the little details. The staff...

This is our third visit to the Inn and we look forward to returning next year. The accomodations are wonderful and the hosts are wonderful as well. We couldn't ask for better service and delicious breakfasts. We were treated as family. A delightful stay. Gail and Brad Hull

We finished our 10 days in Maine with a 2 night stay at the Inn on Carleton. The location was great - surrounded by wonderful restaurants - and easy walk to the sites. Room 4 was an adequate size and had a great bathroom with small soaking tub. While there was an AC unit, it was very loud so we...

This is what you expect a B&B to be like! The innkeepers are amazingly friendly and took care of our every need. They helped making dinner reservations for us one night. They worked around our dietary needs. They gave us suggestions to help plan our day and had great conversation over breakfast. Breakfast was delicious with a good variety. The...

The Inn is a beautiful building conveniently located near the centre of town. Buddy and Cindy are great hosts - they are both welcoming and friendly. Our room was lovely and clean, a great place to relax. Breakfast was delicious and the 24hr access to baked treats and tea/coffee was also very nice. We would definitely recommend.

The Inn was clean, neat, cozy, and comfy. Amazing breakfast. Fabulous selection of treats & bottled water 24/7. Super yummy homemade chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon. Buddy & Cindy are super kind & friendly & helpful & full of lots of energy. (We thought that maybe Cindy was a little too chatty & cheerful, but then decided that it...
