This is a fantastic B&B. The home is clean, well-maintained, and very charming. It is within walking distance to the port area. My wife and I stayed for one evening and we plan on staying there again on our next trip to Portland. We highly recommend!

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,... More

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... More

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... More

A very high quality B & B. The staff provided friendly service evident from the moment we arrived and continued throughout the stay. The room we stayed in was large and well appointed. The bathroom was updated and had a large walk-in shower. The whole inn ( former sea captain's residence) was well maintained inside and out. The front parlor... More

The combination of friendly staff, spacious rooms, and delectable meals our stay was more than we could have hoped! Take the time to meet Cindy, she's a delight, and sit down for one of Buddy's amazing breakfasts. We cannot wait to return!
