WHAT OUR

GUESTS SAY


We have stayed at many B&B's over the years, and this is clearly one of the best, starting with the hospitality of innkeeper Jim, From the time you enter the door, you know it is going to be special - tasteful decor and beautifully set dining table. What is even better, are the breakfasts served - not only delicious, but beautifully presented. In addition to the 2 course breakfast, there were also homemade muffins or othe r breakfast breads available. Homemade cookies are set out in afternoon.We were in Room 6 on third floor, which was a perfect size, beautiful furniture with plenty of drawers and a large closet. Bathroom was spacious, with a nice dresser with mirror and drawers, nice large shower.

We had a great stay at the Inn on Carleton this weekend. Jim took the time to show us around the Inn and give us some great recommendations for pre-dinner drinks when we arrived. Our room was very comfortable, and breakfast the next day was delicious! The Inn is in a great location -- a quiet neighborhood for resting, but close enough to all the fun of the Old Port/downtown area for sightseeing and more. Everything at the Inn is so carefully thought out, and we look forward to a return visit!

The Inn on Carleton is a lovely B&B very near the Arts District. Wonderful breakfast, relaxing side garden, nicely appointed rooms, and good location, were the highlights for us during our stay in early August. Jim, the owner, is gracious and welcoming and Martha, one of his assistants, is a font of local knowledge that led us to some interesting eateries we would not have found ourselves. My husband cannot have eggs which is challenge for breakfast. But Jim and his staff found wonderful alternatives.
