A wonderful stay in Portland
Martha and Jim were wonderful hosts during our two day stay, guiding us with restaurant and museum ideas for our days exploring Portland.The inn is a beautiful restored 19th century home on a quiet tree-lined street, with large comfortable rooms that are beautifully appointed. Room was quiet, bed was incredibly comfortable and breakfast was delicious. We will surely be back. Thank you Jim and Martha!

Inn on Carlton and our first Maine visit!
Lovely, unique home with truly gourmet breakfasts! One morning we even had a live performance by a neighbor who entertained us during breakfast with piano and vocals! Broadway-worthy. The Inn is within walking distance of many good restaurants and shopping, especially art galleries. Innkeepers were friendly and helpful with great suggestions for restaurants, sites and any other info you might need. Truly welcomed you into their home! Only downside for us was that our bedroom was on 3rd floor and I had been having knee problems - next time will request 2nd floor. Also, being and older person, could have used brighter bulbs in lamps. Everything was really clean and had beautiful old furniture but many modern amenities. Would highly recommend the Inn on Carlton!
