Delicious food. Breakfast was wonderful. Our room was on 3rd floor small bath but otherwise nice. Very clean. Nice private back for sitting reading glass wine. Within walking distance to restaurants etc.

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2016

We recently spent two nights at the Inn on Carleton. The inn is an excellent example of what true restoration, with an eye to modern convenience, should look like. Our room was excellent and very comfortable. Breakfast was indeed a creative treat that tasted great with super presentation. The parlor served as a meeting point for the couple we were... More

We enjoyed during 4 nights a large and confortable and cosy room. Patricia and Leo offered every morning a delicious fresh and healthy breakfast. One morning, an opera artist sang and played piano, it was such a wonderful surprise! Leo and Patricia were so gentle and helpful, they gave us a lot of good tips to discover Portland and the...

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Portland and stayed here two nights. The room was surprisingly large and comfortable as well as reasonably priced. There was onsite parking and it was an easy and interesting walk into the main area - we enjoyed getting to see parts of the neighborhood we'd missed if we stayed more centrally. Breakfast... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn on Carleton. Both Leo and Patricia made us feel very much at home and the house and backyard were beautiful and so well maintained! The breakfast was amazingly delicious and the location is great! We would definitely recommend this to others and will surely be back to visit soon!

A perfect place to stay in Portland. We could walk easily to the centre of the city and yet we were in a lovely leafy neighbourhood with good local restaurants a block away. The breakfasts at the Inn were wonderful as were the hosts. I would book again in a minute.

The Inn on Carleton is probably the most amazing B&B I've ever stayed in. From the moment you walk in you're grateful for staying at a place with such a personal touch. Breakfasts are nothing short of spectacular; my wife and I probably looked forward to breakfasts more than anything else during our stay. Patricia really goes all out and... More

We stayed in the Inn On Carlton several years ago under previous ownership. We always stay in the popular West End neighborhood and decided to give this lovely property another try. Great decision! The current innkeeper, Leo, has done a fabulous job bringing new life to this beautiful house. Our room on the third floor was charming and comfy; bathroom... More

From making the reservation to checking out, Leo was the ultimate innkeeper. The inn is impeccably maintained, down to the original hand painted wall murals in the entry vestibule. We had a delicious home-cooked breakfast in the lovely dining room, which lends itself to lively discussions with fellow guests. The inn is off the beaten path but within walking distance... More

Peaceful Inn, great breakfast every morning. Check the rooms before you book due to size. The room we stayed in had a very tiny bathroom and shower (Absolutely no where to put your toiletries etc...) The bed and linens were very clean but the mattress was very hard and the bed squeaked with every move you made. All in all... More

Happy to hear that your stay was peaceful. We do have pumpkin pine floors adorned with area rugs throughout our beautifully restored inn. Room 5 is indeed our smallest but tastefully decorated bedroom. In our middle budget rooms the bathrooms are small however our corner rooms have oversized bathrooms. For guests wanting large bathrooms please choose the corner rooms. Staying... More
