We only stayed one night upon arrival to Portland to visit the area to see the Fall foliage. The staff was very friendly and personable. The rooms were small but comfortable, but the temperature was difficult to manage. As it was fall only the heater was available, requiring opening the windows for cool air, which permitted not only hearing the sound of the Atlantic Ocean but the continuous traffic and boisterous pedestrians walking well into the late night. Being a 200-year old structure, the wooden floor and thin walls only added to the noise of less considerate occupants as they walked and spoke loudly in the halls and rooms. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom (although the door did not close within its frame) was one of the few B&Bs with a bathtub. The neighborhood was not as quiet as one might have imagined. The covered and enclosed patio restaurant was very nice, and the staff could not have been nicer--attentive without being overbearing. The breakfast was delicious. It is a very short stroll to the beach to sea spectacular sunrise. The location is very convenient to visiting local sites and nearby restaurants. Would definitely consider staying here again and would recommend it.
