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

I love Portland's East End. It's where I live myself, and I feel fortunate to step out of my door each day to see the sun and moon rise over Casco Bay. I wouldn't live anywhere else and think you will enjoy visiting Portland with all that it has to offer.

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 in a quiet neighborhood. I love that this unit has its own private entrance and coveted driveway. The unit is furnished with art created by local artists and treasures that I've collected around Portland. I hope you'll have fun with the chalkboard wall in the dining room!

Great Location-clean and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (3 couples) stayed at this property and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We walked every day to downtown Portland and went along the sea shore for exercise and in search of great ice cream and donut shops.

The place has a well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. The entrance is thoughtfully designed with a bench and cubbies for clothing and shoes. The kitchen and family room would benefit from ceiling fans or air conditioners as it was quite warm when the temperature was in the 80s (most of the week we stayed). The chalk board wall in the kitchen kept us on "schedule" and we enjoyed adding to it on a daily basis.

The owner was responsive to our emails and texts when we had questions or concerns. We liked Portland, ME very much and would recommend this property.

GREAT location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (four adults and a toddler) stayed here for a week and it was perfect. The house is spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. Colleen provided a pak-n-play and a high chair for my granddaughter. The location was ideal - play ground near by and lots of walkable neighborhood restaurants and a couple of small grocery stores. We all had a great time and if we ever go to Portland again, we will definitely try to get Colleen's place again! Thanks Colleen!

Comfortable home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This home has all the amenities you need for a nice stay. We particularly liked having morning breakfasts at the large table in the light filled dining area. However, the best part of this home is the location. It is a block from the Eastern Promenade and close to several good restaurants in the Munjoy Hill area. A 15-20 minute walk will get you to "downtown" area of Portland. I highly recommend this home.

Wonderful ladies weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is well appointed and perfect for a weekend in Portland by long time college friends! Sweet home in a lovely local neighborhood with enough amenities to make it feel like home and the bachelorettes partying upstairs reminded us of where we all started! LOL Overall we had a great stay... I would rent again!

Perfect for young children

  • 5 of 5

We were in town with two little ones for a family wedding, and could not have found a better place to stay. The flat is in excellent shape, well appointed, and in a perfect location. We walked to meals, playground, and the wedding ceremony on the eastern promenade. The house and neighborhood are very quiet, and the host was super organized and helpful. Next time we're in Portland we will definitely be staying here.

Car: recommended

This freshly renovated apartment is located on Munjoy Hill. Downeast Magazine's recent article 'Cool on the Hill' characterizes this area as the hippest area in Portland. Located in a residential neighborhood, the apartment is steps from the Eastern Promenade park which has a beautiful lookout into Casco Bay. It's an easy walk to several fine restaurants, Rosemont Market, and Hilltop Coffee. Hop in your car and grab groceries at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, or Hannaford--all just 10 minutes away. Portland Trails provides a lovely walking trail along the water into downtown Portland. Portland is a foodie town, and it's difficult to find a bad meal here. Beaches are an easy 15 minute drive to South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, or Scarborough. East End Beach is located within the Eastern Promenade Park. From your rental, you can hear fog horns, see the moon rise over the bay, and hear the osprey overhead. Hop over to one of the many island in Casco Bay to spend the day peddling or walking around or take the 'mail boat' which stops at a handful of islands and makes a fun day trip. Outlet shopping is 20 minutes away in Freeport. So much to see and enjoy!
