My husband and I stayed here for a weekend away and it was simply perfect. We were up on the third floor, and the room was spotless, well decorated and very comfortable. The common areas are beautiful, warm, and welcoming, with a cozy fireplace in the sitting area. The location is walking distance to several excellent restaurants. Breakfast in the morning was truly outstanding (as was the aroma of homemade blueberry pancakes!), and I appreciated the tea and cocoa available around the clock - a perfect way to warm up after coming in from the cold. What makes this place a real gem is the innkeepers, Deb and Scott, who are extremely gracious hosts. They had great suggestions about things to do around town. Also, we were in Portland during a major winter storm with plenty of snow and strong winds. They really made sure we were okay in the snow and that our car was taken care of during a parking ban due to the storm - including driving us to and from nearby covered parking. Overall, we really couldn't have asked for a better weekend, and hope to return for another visit soon!
