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

Historical mansion

4.6 on October 01, 2014

Although next to to the paper mill, we learned that the elms used to belong to the family of the mill back in the 1800s. The family, the Warrens were played a huge role in the history of Westbrook. I would encourage visitors to discover for themselves.

Both hosts were very kind. Would stay again.

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.

Lovely rooms, beautiful home, outstanding service

Quaint, but refreshing

4.0 on August 22, 2014

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 B&B

3.6 on August 21, 2014

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.

Outstanding Oasis and Down home Comfort

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.

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

4.6 on July 28, 2014

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?
