We spent our first night in Maine here and were delighted with the Inn. Very cozy, clean and comfortable accommodations. The innkeepers were very helpful in making suggestions for dinner and sightseeing. The breakfast was terrific. Great location - you can walk to many places in a short time. I would highly recommend and would stay here again on my... More

Inn on Carleton takes pride in making your stay the best ever starting with a delightful breakfast. This time of year there are so many leisure activities to take in what Portland has to offer. No need to travel any further; walking excursions, house tours and a morning or an afternoon on the water. Of course you still have dinner... More

My husband and I spent a long weekend with a couple of our friends at this quaint bed and breakfast, which is within walking distance to all of the Portland districts. We have stayed at many of these throughout our travels and we have to say that this was the best place yet! Leo was a wonderful host who ensured... More

My wife & I just visited Portland for the first time. Our innkeepers were able to give us great suggestions on things to do and places to eat around town. They also gave us some good suggestions on things to do while traveling to Bar Harbor. The inn is in a great location for traveling around Portland. It is off... More

Many, many thanks. Yes ! It is quiet for a big "little" city. We try our best to lead guests in the right direction whether it be for the day here in Portland or beyond to their next destination. Love making guests happy! More

Breakfasts were just terrific as was the condition, cleanliness, and comfort of the room as well as the little patio in the backyard. Friendly, helpful, and thoughtful owners. Most important for us, however, the Inn is in a great location: a nice neighborhood (with its own markets, restaurants, bars, and so forth) within walking distance of most of what Portland... More

We love our little English garden out back and so do our guests when they are deciding what to do for the day or after a day of activities during the day. Our highlight of the day is cooking a beautiful, well planned, tasty breakfast for our guests to enjoy. This little neighborhood that we live in is just great... More

This is the quintessential B&B by which B&B's should be judged. Immaculately clean rooms (both public and private) and a tasteful handling of all the details from soap to towels and sheets. The breakfast was excellent as well, and the proprietors were available for information but not intrusive. Will definitely return. Excellent value.

We arrived late but Leo waited for us, gave us a list of good nearby restaurants and overall was very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice, in a beautiful building in a very pleasant neighbourhood. Breakfast was also very good. Recommend trying Leo's special "Montecristo"! Strongly recommend this option for a stay in Portland.

The B&B is run by a great family who were very helpful in answering all our questions, providing recommendations for how to best spend our time in Portland.

Leo and I aim to please in every way possible. Portland is indeed a great "little" city and May is a perfect time to visit, fewer tourists, more options in dining without the wait and if it is pleasant one can do all those great activities one does in the summer. Here in the West End it is certainly more... More

We loved everything about the Inn on Carelton. The building itself was beautiful, Leo and Pat went out of their way to accommodate us, and the location was perfect. If we go back to Portland, we will be staying here again for sure.
