Jake and Tim are amazing and sweet. We walked everywhere and the inn was in a wonderful location to do that. We stayed in two different rooms on two different nights, bookending a trip up further north into Maine. The smaller room had its own private bath but it was outside the room. No big deal, though we were spoiled... More

Look no further. Tim and Jake are wonderful hosts. The house has been renovated wonderfully with a hip, clean, modern aesthetic. The breakfast is delicious (and locally-sourced, of course)! Location is very good, a short walk from terrific restaurants and from the historic downtown port. We will certainly be visiting again.

Thoroughly deserves the good praise shared by other reviewers. The rooms are really nice, the breakfast is excellent and Tim & Jake have put a lot of thought into the whole set-up. The only thing missing (according to my wife) was a full length mirror. Personally, I was happy to use the bathroom mirror. Just saying....

We had a great three night stay at the Mercury Inn. Jake & Tim were both so friendly and were always available if anything was needed. We stayed in room IV, it was bright and clean and had everything you might need (except a mirror! I would have liked a mirror as our bathroom was down the hall). The common... More

We had a fabulous 2 night stay at the Mercury Inn. Jake and Tim are fantastic innkeepers who are very attentive but unobtrusive. The breakfast is wonderful: local honey and yogurt, homemade granola and bread and one morning a ramp strata. The rooms are darling -- simple and clean with nice linens, to boot. The common area on second floor... More

Warm accommodations in Portland, perfectly located, delicious breakfasts. Admittedly, we were unsure of it when we drove up to the house. However as soon as you walk in the door, you’ll immediately find a peaceful place to call home while in Portland. Jake and Tim have really thought of everything to make your stay perfect, and do so with sustainability... More

This B&B is located a block or so away from a park and a couple of blocks from downtown Portland. The B&B is located on a busy street in a residential neighborhood and was the cause of some street noise in our room. The three-story building is easy to find because there is a large sign in front of the... More

I stayed here a few weekends ago and it was absolutely wonderful. Everything was clean and the beds were so comfortable. I appreciated the owners' professionalism and they're very nice. I definitely plan on going back.

I had a great time at the Mercury Inn. The innkeepers are wonderful and helpful, the accommodations are great and the inn itself is walking distance from a ton of points of interest in Portland. I recommend it highly.

Stayed with several friends at this B&B this past weekend in what was my first trip to Maine. The inn itself is very well kept, clean, and designed beautifully. We stayed in Room IV which accommodates two (or three) comfortably and has a very open, airy feel. Breakfast was stellar and most importantly (for me, anyway) there was no shortage... More
