My boyfriend and I had the most excellent time staying at the Mercury Inn. Our hosts were delightful. We so enjoyed chatting with them over breakfast in the morning, which was delicious. It was awesome to learn more about the city from their perspective. The Inn is walking distance from all things important. It is super clean and well designed.... More

Really loved the wonderful hospitality during our stay at the Mercury Inn. The rooms are beautifully and eclectically decorated (I covet the table lamp with the blue double-decker shade in room 5). Breakfast was a delight...both for the deliciousness of it and for the sociable communal table. I loved that Tim and Jake joined us for the morning conversations, as... More

I really liked this Bed and Breakfast. In fact, this was my first BB service. The place has cute decor and the inn owners are so knowledgable and personable. They are happy to give you insider tips on what to do during your trip. I loved the breakfast and still wish I could eat the yogurt every morning. If you... More

What a lovely place. The room was clean, modern, and cozy. There were fresh flowers to greet us. The breakfast was amazing and perfect timing. Lovely hosts. The owner is welcoming and very knowledgable about the area and where to visit. I can't wait to re visit!!!

We had a wonderful stay here! We booked two rooms, one for my husband and I and one for my parents. While not large, the rooms were clean, private and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the beautiful sitting room on the second floor where there was a constant supply of coffee, tea and treats! We were also very happy to... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was immaculate, private and the whole environment was great. Simple, quiet with very accommodating hosts- we will return😀. Breakfast was simple, fresh and you do not walk away hungry!!! Very comfortable atmosphere and well priced!

After a few days of camping in the rain in Bar Harbor, the Mercury Inn was a great place to warm up and have a clean comfortable stay. The owners, Tim & Jake, are super nice, provided a delicious breakfast, and had great suggestions of what to do while in Portland (I hadn't been there since I was a small... More

Tim, Jake and Henry are the absolute best. We felt like we were staying at a friend's beautiful home instead of a bed & breakfast. The room, overall aesthetic of the home and the breakfast, we can't say enough about the beautiful breakfast that greeted us every morning made our stay all the better. Mercury Inn is a must-stay, no... More

My partner & I stayed at the Mercury Inn for a weekend getaway to Portland. In anticipation of the trip we were most excited about eating at all the incredible restaurants Portland has to offer, but by the end of the trip, the Inn itself was one of the highlights of the weekend! My partner & I really appreciate design,... More

My partner and I recently decided to book a weekend trip to Portland, ME to get away from the never-ending Vermont winter. After finding the Mercury Inn and reading about it we were impressed with the sustainability and think local ethic that Jake and Tim have incorporated into their business. Upon arrival to the Inn we were immediately impressed with... More
