Somewhat misleading descriptions of rooms....as if you don't read about each one you don't realize that some rooms don't have a private bath and that you may be on the third floor. So yes, unfortunately our room did not have a bath and we were on the 3rd floor. I would not have chosen the room if I had read... More

My wife and I planned on staying a few days in the Portland area at The Elms. We arrived and checked in, unpacked and headed straight for the coast to view the scenery. Enroute I received a call that I had a crisis at work and had to return immediately. We made our way back to The Elms and packed... More

We had a lovely stay at the Elms with family (all adults). Don't be fooled by the unsightly paper mill across the street. The Elms is beautiful inside, quiet, and the screened-in porch at the back overlooks a peaceful river. Only two rooms have private bathrooms and this comes at quite a premium. Breakfasts were tasty and the owners friendly.... More

Each floor has a shared washroom each equipped with 2 showers. I can see there being an issue on a busy weekend if the floor is shared with strangers. My friend and I did not have this issue though, the other guests were very friendly and respected each others time in the washroom. The owners are very friendly, and Matt's... More

few minutes off of Rt 95. 20 minutes from downtown. A quiet get away that is a vacation on its own. Old world charm all around and great full breakfast served on Lenox china. Felt spoiled by Belgium waffles with homemade Maine blueberry sauce and PERFECT eggs benedict. Have a fun day running around town then back to the Elms... More

After a New England road trip with a group of friends, the Elms was perfect for the last night. We arrived late and were able to let ourselves in with the code provided in the email. Our rooms were as pictured, we were on the third floor and had a "shared bathroom", which we didnt mind. That night we were... More

The Elms is a very impressive building, 8,000 square feet over 100 years old. Our rooms were comfortable, breakfast (waffles or eggs benedict) was lovely and Scott, Matt, and Mack Truck (the dog) were all engaging. Location was fine, an easy drive to the downtown restaurants. Our room on the second floor faced the street and the dreaded paper mill,... More

My sister and I decided to get out of Boston for a weekend in Portland. The Elms was a great choice. At first glance with the paper mill across the street, we wanted to turn around and go back to the old port. I'm glad that we decided to check out this great old mill house. We arrived at the...
