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

Outstanding Oasis and Down home Comfort

5 on August 17, 2014

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.

Step back in time to luxury at affordable prices

Lovely 3-night stay. Comfortable. Clean. Charming host. Fabulous breakfasts. Easy in and out.

Strange place, a little spooky

2.4 on August 08, 2014

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.

Loved The Elms

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?

I very nice place to stay

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.

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.
