I just slept the night. Left too early to get breakfast. Matt was very friendly. The kitchen could of been stocked better for people who get up before 8 am.

The entire set-up is very antique-y, but super cute. The hosts were polite and easy to talk to. I appreciated the billiard room, hot tub, and shared bathrooms. The room was spacey, which many added details. Breakfast was delicious. The only negatives were the Wi-Fi didn't quite work on the top floor and the snacks available were somewhat stale. I would, however, recommend staying here. It is close to bustling Portland, but not in the hub-bub of the area.

The Elms is a bit of distance outside of the downtown area but we called a cab and had an easy ride into town. No issues grabbing a cab in the downtown area to get back to the B&B. The B&B is a very nice and well maintained Victorian home. We only spent a Saturday night there and spent most of our time in town. We stayed in the River Room which was very spacious and had an inviting feel to it. The best part of the stay for us was the Sunday morning breakfast. The food was great and there were people from all across the country there that morning. The conversation with other travelers was a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend The Elms as a place to stay if in the Portland, ME area. We would certainly go back.

Love the self entry and get yourself set up. But the owners are just a phone call away whenever for whatever. I can't say enough about how awesome and tasty the breakfast experience is. All fine china. Everyone eating together really does generate great conversation for an hour. Initially the idea of a shared bathroom was intimidating, but we had no complaints. The B&B was full two of the three nights and we were never inconvienced. Hopefully no one else was either. I'd definitely do it again. We'll surely be back next year when we're going through Portalnd.

Charming but rundown house in shabby suburb, opposite a paper mill and farther from central Portland than one was led to believe from website. Still, the strangest aspect of the place is that it's basically D-I-Y. Not only do the owners not live on the premises, they're largely absentee. You arrive, open the door with a combination you've been sent, and pick up the key to your room from the table near the entrance. Owners don't materialize until (an admittedly excellent) breakfast the next morning. It's not "The Shining," exactly, but it's not like any B&B I've ever stayed at.

I don't know what people were complaining about with regard to the paper mill, etc. We heard little noise, there was no smell, and the area was just fine. By chance, the nearby CVS accommodated us in a minor medical emergency with friendly compassion. After checking in, we ate a good meal at the Thai restaurant down the block. From the moment we got to The Elms, we felt comfortable. The Bear Den - our room - was lovely, the air conditioner worked fine and we enjoyed a really peaceful night after driving for hours to get to Portland. The next morning, we chatted with the other guests out on the porch. Breakfast was a delicious, feather-light home-made waffle with wild blueberries. What's not to like?

The house is lovely, the porch sublime, and the breakfast elegant! The only downsite is that there was a fair amount of road noise in our room facing the factory, but wax ear plugs solved that.

We loved our stay at The Elms. The room was lovely and the breakfasts were wonderful. We enjoyed wandering around the beautiful house and relaxing on the porch.
