Our second visit to the Danforth. Again, a delightful stay with excellent accommodations, an attentive and very pleasant staff. The SEA motif was fabulous and unique for an East Coast B&B. We look forward to experiencing the same positive atmosphere at the Camden Harbour Inn.

About
Description
The Danforth is the grande dame of the Portland, Maine boutique hotel scene. Built in the 1800's, extensive renovations to design and (mostly) new bathrooms have married historic gentility with classic but More contemporary stylings. Basement billiard room, a widow's walk with views, three course breakfasts - who could ask for more? A recent review called The Danforth an historic mansion with a hip vibe. Less

They told us it would be open around July 1, so recommend you reach out to them. They were in full construction mode when we were there.
