Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in Portland! The house was great--the location was EXCELLENT and the style of the house (especially for Westerners such as ourselves) felt perfect for the area. Both are reasons we're so happy we chose a vacation rental over a hotel and will continue to do so in the future. You're availability and assistance was also awesome--we went to nearly all the places you suggested and we're so happy with each them! It was SO helpful to have someone from the area make suggestions with descriptions of why to go to each, we really appreciated it!

The Best Place to Stay While Visiting Portland

  • 5 out of 5
We corresponded with the owner both by telephone and e-mail before we arrived. He was very helpful and friendly, suggesting local restaurants and going out of his way to help us find parking for our rental car. The apartment, really a three-story row house, was clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished, just as it was represented in the listing. There was even a small garden and deck where we had our morning coffee. The Victoria Mansion is practically across the street. The city of Portland is charming: with cobblestone streets and brick buildings built in the 1850's. We took the city bus tour and the port tour by boat, a great photo op. We even took the ferry to Peak's Island and rented bicycles. Our bus tour guide recommended the lobster rolls at Even Tide and we were not disappointed. We also dined at Dimillo's, famous for its lobster, and at Fore Street, as well 555 Congress Street, two of our favorite restaurants of all time. Oscars on Congress Street serves really good pizza, and the night we were there a four-person blue grass band played for us. Fantastic! We toured the Victoria Mansion as well as Longfellow's home and the Museum of Portland was beautiful and offered a good representation of art. The Standard Bakery on Commercial Street is not to be missed!!! We walked everywhere, both in the day time and at night, and felt completely at ease. We had a wonderful time in Portland partly because we had such a great place to stay. We would recommend the place we stayed to anyone who had time visit Portland.

Nice place close to downtown

  • 4 out of 5
We loved being close to downtown so we could walk everywhere and the accomodations where nice. From a woman's standpoint I wish there would have been a place to unpack clothes in either of the spare bedrooms and a mirror would have been nice but otherwise the place is really cute. There is no aircondition so if you are traveling in the summer be aware of that. Also if you have a large vehicle you have to park on the street. Nice, seemingly safe neighborhood with lots to do!

Owner's Response: Hi Carol, Thanks very much for the feedback - Your suggestions around the additional dressers and adding full length mirrors are great ways we can improve the property for future guests!

Jan'14 update: We've added a small dresser in the 2nd bedroom and den, and for this season 3 rooms (2 bedrooms and the den) have room air conditioners.

Excellent location with lots of charm

  • 5 out of 5
We came here for the Memorial Day Weekend to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday. Wonderful house (beware the stairs are pretty steep and there are 3 floors). The first bedroom is on the second floor which has its own bathroom - beautiful views from each side and is very updated and clean. The 3rd floor has a den on one side with a pull out coach which is very comfortable and a shared bathroom with the second bedroom which has 2 beds. Again views on both sides - one of the water and the other of a lovely green space. Walking distance from all of the shopping and restaurants. The living room, dining room and kitchen have a lot of charm and are very homey and function able. Great experience and stay!
Highly recommended.

Perfect location and beautifully cozy

  • 5 out of 5
This townhouse was the perfect place for our family to get a taste of what living in Portland would be like. The location is perfect and only a 5-10 minute walk to any of the best restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping you would need during a stay in the city. The townhouse was incredibly clean and very cozy with a nice fireplace when the temperature drops. There is a designated parking spot for this townhouse which was also very convenient. The owner was so accommodating to our dates and available during our stay as well and even sent a list of some incredible restaurants which we really enjoyed. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!!!!

A great place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
This property had everything one could want in a home away from home. The living areas were a great place to hang out and socialize, the kitchen was a great convenience, and the location was fantastic.

We used it as a jumping off point for our time in Portland and were very happy. The Downtown area was close by and easy to walk to. It felt comfortable in a way that you can't really get with a hotel.

Overall it was a fantastic little spot and a great place to stay if you're in Portland.

my multiple naps by the little stove while i was supposed to be working were almost too pleasant. this rental was an integral part of a great weekend stay in Portland. i got absolutely nothing done, besides drinking whiskey with friends & enjoying the comfort of this property.
