Warm, inviting, comfortable, extremely clean and beautifully decorated...every detail makes it obvious that the Inn is in the hands of someone who loves...

Wonderful overnight with my daughter. The inn was warm, welcoming and very clean. The old Port was easily within walking distance. The breakfast was delicious. Although we didn't have time to visit, the Portland Museum of Art was close by. Can't wait to return with my husband.

You know the innkeeper/owner of the West End Inn, Victoria, is attentive when she immediately responds to your email about the inn at 10:30 pm, before we even made a reservation! Victoria made us feel at home even before my girlfriend and I arrived. And she is a wonderful chef - coming down the stairs the smell of bacon almost...

The West End Inn is fabulous. The space is elegant and comfortable and has been enhanced by recent changes. The new owner graciously accommodated our need to catch an early flight and had breakfast packed for us and coffee ready before scheduled breakfast time. It was once again, an excellent visit at the West End Inn.

Therefore the proprietor or manager is an important aspect of reviewing a B&B. The West End Inn is one of the best experiences I have had in some time. Victoria, the new...
