Portland Maine’s Inn on Carleton

Sold 2014 and 2018

Sold 2014 and 2018. Built in 1869, Portland Maine’s Inn on Carleton is the oldest established bed and breakfast in Portland and was featured on This Old House. Many words can be used to describe this grand Victorian Inn, however, gorgeous, opulent, elegant, authentic, and comfortable are most appropriate. Inn on Carleton offers a stunning color palette,many of which are original to the house, with warm and vibrant colors, soft whites and neutrals and dark mahogany and espresso furniture and all are enhanced by an abundance of beautiful lighting. The hardwood floors are extremely well preserved and maintained.

Guest rooms are quite large, have very high ceilings, plenty of light and beautiful furnishings, all with updated en-suite private baths with plenty of amenities.

Portland Maine’s Inn on Carleton offers outdoor living space which, for in-town Portland, is an unexpected and very welcome surprise! The patios and gardens offer guests and owners a beautiful and quiet area in which to relax after a full day of exploration and innkeeping.

Ideally situated in Portland’s residential and historic West End District, you’ll enjoy a short 10-15 minute walk to the shops and restaurants from the inn toward and around the Museum District and about a 30-40 minute walk to the heart of the Old Port, Portland’s working waterfront.
