Downtown Portland Maine Inn for Sale
Elegant and perfectly located in Bon Appetit's 2018 'Restaurant City of the Year'.
This downtown Portland Maine Inn for sale is located in a beautiful residential neighborhood of vibrant, ever-growing Portland, Maine.
Built in 1871 and recorded in the City’s register of Historic Homes, the Victorian-era Inn has been meticulously maintained and updated to satisfy chic, modern sensibilities and expectations.
The Inn has six uniquely designed guest rooms spanning three floors, all featuring private bath. The common dining and sitting rooms were fully renovated in 2017, leading Downeast Magazine to recognize the Inn’s “wow factor” interior design.
