We stayed only one night at The Inn on Carleton but were made to feel very welcome. Leo gave us lots of good info for dining in Portland. Patty does a great breakfast. Our room was spacious, beautifully clean and well maintained. The Inn has a lovely back garden to enjoy in good weather.

My wife and I only had one evening and morning with the Inn on Carleton, but in that time, we were treated like family. Leo & Patty, for only being B&B owners for a few weeks, really know how to make you feel at home. Patty's breakfast was delicious! Croissant french toast stuffed with cream cheese, definitely a delicious way... More

Since I booked the room on March 16th, the inn has changed hands. We had a very nice stay. The breakfast was very good. The room was quiet and comfortable. The inn keepers were very nice and seeming like they are trying to adjust to this new way of life. They are doing well! The only concerns I had were... More

Stayed just one night passing through town and would definitely go back. Warm, welcoming staff, comfortable and very attractive room, and great breakfast cooked to order. The coffee cake was really delicious and it was very nice to have the choice of a lighter breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, and homemade granola. Thoughtful touches like snacks and bottled water in... More

This is our second year in a row staying at this Inn. Cindy, the manager is fantastic. She remembered us from last year and made us feel right at home. She is truly the heart and soul of the Inn. You could not meet a more gracious and welcoming person. She knows her Portland and is great with the recommendations.... More

We have stayed at a number of inns in Portland, and the Inn on Carleton is the one to which we will return. It's a stately building, in a quiet neighborhood, lined with beautiful old trees. Cindy, the manager met us at the door and from there on, she helped us get settled and couldn't have been more accommodating We... More

We stayed three nights in early June. The inn is is a fabulous neighbourhood of Portland with many facilities close by. As others have said it's a 15-20 minute walk to the port area. The innkeepers are friendly and accommodating and made us feel very welcome. We loved our room on the top floor (the blue room), which was very... More
