We were in Portland for a brief visit and stayed at the Inn on Carleton. The reviews here say it all and we concur: well appointed rooms, clean, an excellent breakfast, and welcoming, friendly, and accommodating owners. We will be back. Highly recommended.

My husband and I had business in Portland and an old schoolmate who was born and bred in Portland suggested this B & B. It could not have been more perfect---beautifully appointed rooms, warm, welcoming owners and a great location. We are already plotting and planning our next stay.

We visited exactly one year from our prior visit, during which the Inn went through an ownership change. Leo and Patricia were as hospitable and welcoming as Buddy and Cindy. Perhaps not as high-energy and "settled-in" as B&B operators, but quite fine. We had some confusion with the house cleaning....somehow she thought we didn't need a cleaning on our first... More

Decided to visit Portland for a long weekend and had the pleasure of staying at the Inn on Carleton. Room was nice, breakfast was delicious, and Leo and Patty were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone visiting Portland.

My husband and I were looking for a weekend in Portland and found this B&B on TripAdvisor. It was everything promised. Great location, accommodating hosts, and excellent food. We like to walk, so walking into the downtown area, a mile or so, was enjoyable. The hosts suggested places to visit and see based on our interests and were very helpful.... More

First time to Portland, came to the Inn for an experience based on the fine reviews from other travelers. The inn, and more importantly the innkeepers themselves, made the stay as enjoyable as we had hoped for. The inn itself is a beautiful old home, rooms are decorated tastefully and kept clean. Breakfast was truly a treat and a great... More

The rooms are comfortably and clean, and the breakfast is tasty, but the big draw here is the innkeepers, Leo and Patty. In addition to being very friendly and welcoming, they had a vast knowledge of the city and especially the neighborhood, which they were very happy to share. They provided us with a bunch of good tips, and some... More

We've been here three years in a row and love it. The new owners seem to have fallen right in to the swing if things, and we're very helpful. Comfy rooms, delicious food, beautiful house, etc. not to mention Portland is a great city to explore!

Words fail to describe how perfect and immaculate Carleton Inn Bed & Breakfast is. From the moment we arrived to the last steps off the B&B stairs, everything was truly perfect and memorable. Cindy greeted us with a warmth that only family provides and took the time to share suggestions of where to go around town. Our room was intimate... More

Saw the reviews here and that led me to book it for our anniversary weekend away. Every positive thing written here is true. Extremely affordable, great location, really cute rooms, nice people, and wonderful breakfast. I don't know what could be improved on, our stay was absolutely perfect except for the weather!
