It's possible that I just never noticed when I was younger and even more of an idiot than I am now, but the current iteration of Portland seems to feature a number of businesses which (and residents who) exhibit three traits simultaneously: a concern for economic/agricultural sustainability, aesthetic taste, and (still) that kind of self-reliance and sense of propriety native...

Great weekend at Mercury inn for friend's bachelorette! Could not have asked for a quainter inn or more accommodating hosts! Breakfast was delicious! Rooms were comfortable and decor was cozy! Loved the extra touch of slippers for each room! Would highly recommend to friends and family and would not hesitate to return next time I am in Portland!

Breakfast was lovely with scones, an egg dish and greek yogurt with maple syrup in a jar as well as toast, fruit and nut bars, coffee,... More

My boyfriend and I decided to explore Portland and found this little bed and breakfast on Trip Advisor. It looked super cute so we decided to book a one night stay. We absolutely loved it. The Mercury Inn is cozy, immaculate, and a great value. We by no means booked the largest room - we stayed in room 7, but... More

My running group wanted to find a place for our annual overnight get-together. It turns our that Mercury Inn was the perfect spot. Greeted by innkeepers Tim and Jake, we were taken to charmingly designed, comfortable rooms replete with beautiful linens, great lighting and cable TV. The common areas were equally inviting, with mid-century decor in a historic Victorian building.... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending two nights at the Mercury Inn. The building is beautiful, and the owners Jake and Tim have done a wonderful job of maintaining the history while updating the decor. We greatly enjoyed breakfast each morning, and got excellent recommendations of the area from the owners. The beds are amazingly comfortable and... More

My fiancee stayed at the Mercury Inn in January 2015 and had an absolutely wonderful time! Tim and Jake, the Innkeepers, have created a serene and beautiful home-base in the West End of Portland. I loved the food, rooms, service, and styling. It's perfect for young couples or friends looking to get away for a weekend. We found the Inn... More

My husband and I had a very nice stay at the Mecury Inn this weekend. We highly recommend the Inn if you are visiting Portland. The Inn was very comfortable and cozy and the breakfast offerings were delicious. The menu included many locally sourced breakfast items. I love the Inns sustainable environmentally friendly emphasis! The location is very walkable to... More

We arrived early at this B&B and were welcomed by Tim who showed us to our room. He gave us lots of information about the B&B, the area, restaurants etc. We could walk everywhere and it took about 10/15 minutes to get to the main Portland area. The B&B decor was modern and comfortable with places to sit and relax... More
