The location is great, the facility itself is a gem and the owners are very personable. For that I give it 4 stars. But from the moment I checked in, the manager's attitude was totally off-putting. Having chatted with the owners, this young fellow, Dylan, clearly has their confidence ("like a member of the family") but he could kill their...

Response to "Snide Manager" Review on Trip Advisor: We do have an assistant Innkeeper which Dillion takes so much pride in working here at the Inn when I am not here. As always we take every review to heart and want nothing more then to meet our guests needs. We take great pride in always welcoming guests with professional enthuisam....

We returned to the Inn at Carleton for another long thanksgiving weekend. It was like returning home. Buddy and Cindy make the elegance, charm and comfort of the Inn a one -of-a kind place. The rooms are warm and inviting and the breakfasts are delicious. We cannot wait to return.

Gourmet breakfasts, the nicest rooms, outstanding service and great location make this a must stay bed and breakfast! My wife left her cell phone and they mailed it to our home! Thanks Buddy and Cindy.

This is a beautiful B&B that should not be missed. The only experience better than the property itself is Buddy and Cindy who have enough personality for any four people, just fabulous individuals. They truly enjoy their work and make you feel like family. Breakfast was amazing. We will make it a point to re visit them soon.

It will be difficult to put into words our experience at the Inn on Carleton. There isn't one thing about our three nights that I could change or improve. The passion and enthusiasm that radiate from Buddy and Cindy, the charm of the inn, the location, the delicious (and generous) breakfasts each morning (and the fresh cookies each night)... not...

Buddy and Cindy crackle with personality and warmth, just like the Inn on Carleton! From the moment we arrived, as we overheard Buddy joking with the guest who arrived just ahead of us--someone who came to the inn regularly--we knew that this was a place where people felt immediately at home. The inn is a historic brownstone in Portland's West...

Just got back from a long weekend at Inn On Carleton and it was great! Rooms are so warm and cozy, the assistant Innkeeper Cindy is a doll, and the breakfast each morning was perfect! There is always fresh baked goods put out each afternoon and a wide variety of teas and other snacks as well. They were very good...

This Inn was very well kept and the owners were extremely nice. The complimentary breakfast of poached eggs on an english muffin with crab was hand crafted and delightful. Also the bread pudding was amazing! So warm and tasty. Lovely little place to go in Portland that's in walking distance of all the shops and restaurants!

What a lovely B&B! We had just one night here in September and really liked it. Firstly, we arrived early (about 2 hours before the advertised check-in) and this was no problem at all and our room was ready and they helpfully let us check-in straight away. We were also greeted with some rather exceptional key lime pie cookies -...
