About Colleen Bedard

I am a New Englander and have lived in the Portland area off and on for 25 years. I am now settled here and wouldn't live anywhere else but Munjoy Hill. It is truly special to hear fog horns, the train, and the tug boats hard at work in the harbor. The sounds and the smells leave a lastly impression. In addition to being a Realtor, I am also an artist and founded the Society for East End Arts with a few fellow-artists almost 10 years ago. I love walking on the Eastern Promenade with my dog, Coali, where there is an off-leash area for her to run and socialize with the other Hill dogs.

Colleen Bedard purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Colleen Bedard chose Portland

This property is unique with its huge round window, roof deck, and bank of windows. I bought this property for myself and added a 3rd floor dormer which greatly expanded the usable living space on the 3rd floor. I have lived in this unit several times over the past 25 years. It's a great place to hang out.

What makes this apartment unique

When I saw this property, I had to have it--and so did several other people. I was in a multiple offer situation and was fortunate enough to be the chosen buyer. It's a comfortable house with terrific views. The private roof top deck--with its ladder access and step-through window--is probably my favorite spot to sit on a sunny day. (The roof deck can be challenging for some people to access because of the set-up.)

Great summer getaway!

We really enjoyed our stay here: Great location near the water and food options, as well as some grassy areas for picnics and walking around. The property was clean, the host was responsive to our emails and questions, and it had everything we needed. Thanks!

Great location, perfect getaway

  • 5 out of 5
Nice, clean 3rd floor apartment... LOTS of windows so if you need complete darkness to sleep, this is not the place for you. However, we loved the natural light and the views of the water. The rooftop "deck" is a bit misleading, but a cool feature for those who are looking for a good view with a unique twist. The best part of this place was the location. Every morning we walked to hilltop coffee (7 min walk) and then walked down to the promenade for sweeping views of Casco Bay. Don't miss the trail that runs at the bottom of the hill along the water! Although it is a bit of a walk to downtown... It is possible. For food nearby, we enjoyed the local restaurants, The Front Room and Otto Pizza. The only negatives I found were that the air conditioning sometimes struggled to keep the place cool on a warm, sunny day and we had to park a bit far down the street one night when we got home. The place really is charming though.. A perfect last minute getaway for us!

Plenty of space and light.

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is huge and filled with natural light. The space is unique (as I like to think I am) and far removed (read:superior) to cookie-cutter, big-box hotel chains. It is within very easy walking distance of downtown, well furnished, quiet, and has a gigantic squeaky clean bathroom. While deck provides a beautiful view - it truly is just for the intrepid. Carrying a pizza and a beer up the ladder would be death defying - and more death defying would be the trip down the ladder after a drink or two. That said - the apartment is still close to perfect for individuals who like to spread out and appreciate waking up to sunrise. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here a full week. What a convenient location, clean rental & extremely helpful owner! We had a few questions once in the unit, contacted the owner and she was responsive immediately. We found it to be immaculate and the natural light-beautiful!! Great little restaurants, coffee shop, etc on Congress Ave that are walkable. Delightful location!! We enjoyed going up to the rooftop-a different view for sure. Nice sunsets....

Great location . Most things are located within easy walking distance.
The place had great charm and comfortable beds. Would recommend this location.

Not safe.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us! Yes; accessing the rooftop deck does require a slow approach up the ladder and then stepping through the window/door. It is very unconventional. Once you're up on the deck, the view is wonderful. The roof deck is not for everyone, however. Thankfully, we have an expansive park at the foot of the street where you can sit and enjoy front row views of Casco Bay!

Munjoy Hill has become one of the most desirable locations to live and vacation in Maine's largest city. This is a friendly and eclectic neighborhood with a mix of long-time residents and newcomers alike. The neighborhood is popular because of its proximity to the 2 acre Eastern Promenade Park, local restaurants, and shops. It is an easy walk to the coffee shop and Rosemont Market, where you will find fresh produce, meats, cheeses and wines.

Walk or bike to the Casco Bay Ferry and spend a few hours or the day on one of the 'calendar islands' in Casco Bay. SailMaine offers the use of their boats to experienced boaters for a small fee or take lessons from them and learn to sail.

Munjoy Hill has a vibrant artist community. The Society for East End Arts (SEA) holds 2 annual events--a holiday sale in December and open studio tour in June. Many artists also open their studios during Portland's First Friday Artwalk each month.

Portland is a foodie town. We have so much wonderful food to choose from. Visit the highly acclaimed Farmer's Market for locally raised fruits, vegetables and even meats. Wondering where to eat out tonight? The choices of great food are endless. Walk to the Front Room, the Blue Spoon or Bar Lola on Munjoy Hill. For a little more exercise before your meal, take the East End trail into downtown Portland's Old Port to dine at any one of many delicious restaurants. Food carts are new to Portland, and we are loving these new additions to our food scene.

Feel like heading to the beach? We are 20 minutes to the lovely beaches in Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough. Head down to the East End Beach to launch your kayak, paddleboard, or windsurfer.

In the summer, catch an outdoor concert or a movie. As a small city, Portland offers everything from museums to galleries to fine dining. We're casual. There are not too many where shorts or jeans are not the wardrobe of choice!
