This is a fabulous place to stay if you are in Portland. All the qualities of this B&B are top notch but the owner, Victoria, is even above that. She was so helpful and attentive and great fun. She has a detailed knowledge of restaurants and tourist attractions in Portland and

Our last stay at West End Inn was 4 yrs ago, when it was under different ownership, and we gave it a good review then. This time, under Victoria's jurisdiction, our experience was even better. The Inn is spotlessly clean, every room is beautifully furnished, the ambiance is

Price of an overnight stay?
Howdy, Linda, We stayed at the West End Inn a few months ago and, as I recall, the rates were in line with most of the other B&B's we checked out. On the other hand, the experience is worth every cent. Victoria is a great host, stimulating conversation (if you wish to chat), excellent breakfasts, cool accommodations, and wonderful location. We have talked seriously of adding another Maine vacation to our "bucket list" just so we could visit the West End Inn again!

how can i book a car for pick up from airport
Typically, there are always cabs available at baggage claim when you arrive. There is an information booth as well. The person working the booth will assist if for some reason there are no taxis. In addition, we can provide you with a number for a taxi service we like to recommend and you may set up a pick up with them if you wish.
