I am not a fan of B&Bs. This may have changed that impression. We only had one night in Portland and wanted a reasonable, convenient stay. I was leary when arrived because it seemed to sit on a less than cozy street. But very close to a main thoroughfare.
Room wasn't ready when we arrived. No big deal. We parked and went adventuring. Returned to the house to find a note saying our room is ready and head up. Stayed in the Walt Witman Room. It was a comfortable room. High a top the house. For one night, worked well. Even enjoyed the scented candle in the room.
House could use some maintenance. The bathroom was small...but great hot water. Just a little caulk and paint will fix up some blemishes.
It was nice that there was a small kitchenette right off the room with hot water for tea and coffee. My only disappointment was that I NEED coffee in the morning when getting up. And there was none until the breakfast was served. I'm an early riser and thank GOD I packed some instant packs where I could make my own until the breakfast lady came in.
Speaking of the breakfast lady...she was great. VERY hospitable and welcoming. Gave great driving advice.
Price was okay for the area and town. Not sure I'd want to spend a week here, but for a night or two...it works well.
Also, not sure why the beautiful living room was closed to guests. Seemed odd.
