Aside from some tricky ice and slush that had to be navigated carefully on the sidewalk in front of this lovely old home, we had a lovely time at the Pomegranate Inn. It is really full of indescribably eclectic objets, art, furniture and details. So often, the B & B has lots of very nice stuff one is semi-fearful of... More

We have spent a lot of time in Portland and have stayed at a variety of B&Bs. Pomegranate Inn was very good and we'd definitely return. Great location, nice breakfast, clean rooms. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

We were travelling through New England last Fall and were going to spend our last 2 nights in Boston but decided to break up the drive from Bar Harbor and spend 1 night in Portland.

It's almost as if the small Bed and Breakfasts paradises of the 1960's were resurrected and given a polish and restoration job. The beds are classic and lavish, by means of pillows and spreads. The wallpaper and windows are very Raold Dahl meets Ken Adams. Many accentuated charms. All the rooms are nice if you take a peak. But I'll... More

It is such a pleasure when the eclectic vibe of our Portland Maine inn really hits home with our guests. "Raold Dahl meets Ken Adams." We love it! We are so pleased that you had such a wonderful time and our "classic and lavish" beds, Erin's distinctive breakfasts and henrY's welcoming company helped to cement your (new-found?) love of Maine.

The temperature was flirting with single digits, evening was coming on, and the snow in Portland made drivers feel they were working their way across the top of a cake frosted with whipped cream. The lights of the Pomegranate Inn shone out into the street with a welcoming twinkle. The rooms are wonderful, decorated with attention to detail and tasteful... More

Wonderful evening in the romantic Carriage House. Was thrilled with fireplace and spacious bath. House beautifully maintained. Eclectic decor fascinating and warm. Innkeepers friendly, courteous and helpful in every manner. Food was perfect...everything first class. These folks have our business for any future trip to Portland or any of the cities where they have properties.

Everything about this inn is wonderful. We stayed in room 8 and the bed was SO comfortable. There is also a separate seating area that we enjoyed. Service was amazing as was the breakfast.

Inn and rooms were vibrantly decorated. Comfortable room, best linens I have slept on in a long time. Staff was very accommodating -- and breakfast was delicious. West Portland location allowed for access to harbor and downtown.
