The Elms Bed & Breakfast Inn. Classic architecture, well appointed antique filled rooms and amazing public spaces, it's a beautiful place to stay. The Elms harkens back to a gentle, bygone era. Our Bed & Breakfast is located just 10 minutes from the center of historic Portland Maine. Come and stay, relax on the veranda, shoot some pool, or picnic on the lawn over looking the river. We are looking forward to hosting your next vacation, business trip or perhaps just a quiet weekend with friends. Give us a call at 207-854-4060. We're looking forward to hearing from you. Matt, Inn Keeper innkeeper@elmsmaine

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.

We had a home away from home. Comfy and cozy. Innkeepers were welcoming and helpful with knowledge of the area. The best room in the house, as they advised, was the screened porch facing the river. We spent pleasant hours there in the summer evening. The room was very comfortable, spacious with a good mattress. Overall, the experience was one we will savor.

We had a great stay at The Elms!

My wife and I went for our honeymoon and we were looking for something homey, and this was perfect. The room was spacious, and the location was great. It was a super easy drive to get into Portland. We had a great time with the innkeeper, Matt, who is an excellent cook. He was friendly, caring, and helped us with finding places to eat and things to do. It added a personal feel and connection which was what we also wanted.

Pleasant place to stay!

The room was nice, although unremarkable. However, the host was charming and the breakfast he prepared was truly wonderful.

Clean, lovely rooms, but only two have private baths. Breakfast was less than expected. Dining room table had white paper covering it which was appealing. Staff worked very hard to accomodate visitors. Screened side porch was wonderful. B & B sits across from Paper Factory on a busy street.

Consistently Outstanding

Returning to The Elms after 3 years brought both excitement and apprehension. End Result: The Innkeepers have consistently maintained their high level of generous hospitality, personal attentiveness to guest detail and exceptional quality of service. BRAVO!

Great stay at the Elms

The Elms B&B is beautiful and I enjoyed my weekend stay. Matt, the innkeeper was very accommodating. Breakfast was delicious both mornings. Would definitely recommend!

Most enjoyable stay!

I enjoyed my stay at The Elms immensely! My room on the third floor reminded me of the room in my grandfather's old house in Connecticut where I stayed as a kid. Lovely view down to the Presumpscott River, too. Matt is a great innkeeper and he prepares a totally awesome breakfast. I loved the woodwork in the house; the ceilings are wonderful. Safe secluded parking, much appreciated. I highly recommend this Inn.

Nice room, loved the hot tub

4.0 on May 01, 2013

The inn keeper is very friendly and helpful. The house is an old Victorian. It is on a busy road so its easy to find, but surprisingly quiet inside. The hot tub is on a screened in porch overlooking the river - beautiful!! Overall we had a great experience. I gave 3 stars for cleanliness because some parts of the house smelled musty. However, our room was very clean & not musty.

Thanks Matt

I stayed at The Elms five different times over the last 1 1/2 years for business reasons. My visits were during the off-season tourist season so I was the only one at the inn. All the rooms transport one back to the time when the inn was used by a large paper business for entertaining clients. Some rooms have a common bathroom. Matt, the innkeeper, was a very gracious host. He made very delicious breakfasts every morning of my stay. The Inn is in a business district of the town. There is a view of the paper factory but the factory is not noisy nor does it give off odor. There is a nice river view on the other side of the inn. The rooms are reasonably priced. Some minor repairs need to be made on the walks and the front door. I would definitely stay there again.
