“Fantastic first time USA B&B experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

This was our first experience of an American B&B after staying in many at home in the UK.
We were curious to see how the two compared!
After 6 nights in a city hotel in New York what a great change of pace was the Chadwick.
We were greeted by Scott who showed us around this beautiful period property.
Guests have full use of the ground floor lounges and dining room, which are beautiful.
Hot and cold drinks and delicious home made cookies as well as fruit were always available.
Our room was lovely as was our bathroom. Great comfortable bed and plenty of towels etc. Bev loved the balcony.
The location in Portland was great, we loved the town, great friendly people.
Breakfasts were a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. Absolutely wonderful food.
Erin was a star, really chatty and helpful as well as a great cook.
The Chadwick was a great introduction to USA B&B we hope others can match the standard set here!
We would without doubt recommend The Chadwick to anyone visiting the area.
Thanks Scott and Erin for a great stay, we loved it.

My husband and I decided on a fairly last minute short mid-week getaway. I searched on-line and found the Chadwick had one room remaining. We booked it and were very happy with our choice. The location is good. Not too far from downtown (and Caiola's) if you like walking. We parked our car and didn't use it the four days that we were there. On arrival we were greeted by Erin. She was very welcoming and gave us a quick tour of the downstairs, including complimentary water and snacks. They also have wine at a reasonable price. Our room was perfect - even had an electric fireplace and terrycloth robes that came in very handy after we were caught out in a rainstorm without our rain gear. The breakfasts were delicious and included choices for vegetarians. I recommend the Chadwick to anyone who wants a place where they have thought of everything.

Visited the Chadwick in June of 2014 for a week and stayed in the Abbott Room. Before going, I was skeptical of any B&B. I must say I was completely won over by the Chadwick. The location is very nice being close to everything we wanted to do in Portland. The rooms were great. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room included all of the amenities we could ask for. The breakfasts were amazing. Between the strawberry shortcake pancakes and pumpkin waffles, I couldn't ask for anything better. Erin and Scot were exceptional cooks and hosts.

I'd highly recommend the Chadwick to anyone looking to have a good time in Portland. We'll definitely be going back in the future.

I found this inn to be so welcoming and comfortable and the staff so friendly that I didn't want to leave! The breakfasts and Erin's cookies are to die for and the Baxter Room with it's little balcony and wicker chairs was a delightful afternoon escape after touring Old Port restaurants and shops and museums. The neighborhood is very quiet and the streets to downtown easy to negotiate. I hope to return to this place next year and will recommend it to everyone I know travelling to the east coast!

Room Tip: Baxter room has the balcony, but all the rooms are beautiful

This is only my 2nd b&b experience, so I don't consider myself all that qualified to write a review. However, I wanted to express how pleasantly surprised at how lovely this place is. It has the comforts of home in a friendly atmosphere from our innkeeper Erin, but enough privacy that is often lacking in a typical b&b. For example, instead of one big dining room table forcing people to talk to each other, there are four smaller tables for eating. The food alone is enough for me to come back. We had the pleasure of enjoying strawberry pancakes, omelets, blueberry scones, peanut butter cookies and more. Would definitely stay there again if I'm ever in the area.

Some may complain about distance to downtown. I can imagine it might be a little far if you're walking, but I can't speak to that because we had rented a car and it was only a 5 minute drive to the wharf where all the boats tours leave from and where all the yummy restaurants are.

Special thanks to Erin for recommending Central Provisions for dinner. So good that we went back a second time!

Room Tip: Chamberlain is the only one with a king bed

We happened upon the Chadwick B and B, and it was our good fortune that we did! Only because there was a last minute cancellation were we able to get a room, and we stayed for two days. The room was extremely well appointed, the bed was glorious, and the breakfasts were fantastic! The owner and staff were so fantastically accommodating and thoughtful that our stay ended too soon!

Room Tip: We had a south facing room and the morning sun was lovely.

We visit a lot of inns. The Chadwick is a standout. Classy and comfortable. You won't go hungry at breakfast, whether it includes strawberry shortcake pancakes, blueberry scones, or the best granola I've ever had. You're in a quiet neighborhood for walking or running. And you're still within a half-mile to a mile-and-a-half of everything in Portland. The innkeepers, Scot and Erin, are friendly and get all the details right.

Room Tip: The Abbott Room (Room 2) in June worked for us. We didn't need the A/C. Just opened the windows...
