Leo and Patricia Mennitt
Innkeepers

“This is the quintessential B&B by which B&B's should be judged. Immaculately clean rooms (both public and private) and a tasteful handling of all the details from soap to towels and sheets. The breakfast was excellent as well, and the proprietors were available for information but not intrusive. Will definitely return. Excellent value.”

Why Stay at a Bed & Breakfast in Portland?

A stay at The Inn on Carleton is special; you can expect a uniquely decorated, comfortable and spacious room in a grand Victorian era townhouse. Your hosts will greet you and share local knowledge of the best Portland area day trips, restaurants & nightlife. In the morning you will be served a scrumptious breakfast that is a reflection of the season with locally sourced ingredients. Guests have the option of sharing the days activities with fellow travelers, or a quiet breakfast for two. Afternoon tea and snacks are available in the front parlor or wile the day away in the English garden.

The Inn on Carleton as are many B&B's converted historical buildings with a grand design and unique architectural features. Like most, the Inn on Carleton does not have an elevator or a main level powder room. We are fortunate that all rooms have en-suite bathrooms and closet space. Every B&B is unique... Why stay at a cookie-cutter hotel when you can stay somewhere with more value, more attention, and exciting history? We look forward to helping you create great memories of your stay in Portland!
