About The Inn

This restored 1869 grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast located in Portland Maine's prestigious, historic Western Promenade neighborhood is the epitome of comfortable elegance. Situated on a quiet, tree-lined street in a neighborhood of Victorian architecture, The Inn on Carleton is close to the center of downtown Portland. It's a short walk to the Portland Museum of Art, Maine Medical Center, the Performing Arts Center, historic Old Port, and the city's business district. “A standout B&B in a city full of B&Bs...Perfect choice for B&B lovers” Conde Nast Traveler - August 2019
