The Elms Bed & Breakfast

102 Cumberland Street , Westbrook, ME USA (Show map)


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

The cost of staying at the Elms is about half the cost of staying in town Portland. There's a paper mill right across the street. But yet you forget the mill. The Elms is a stunning building. Our room was on the river side, very large and very quiet, like our own little heaven. Tyler the proprietor was super wonderful. There are plenty of restaurants and other services close by. And it's a short drive if you do want to go to Portland.

Amazing Bed and Breakfast Stay!

The Elms is an beautiful Bed and Breakfast. It is located just outside of Portland, Maine which is a cute little city great for a couple of days exploring. The breakfast was delicious every morning and far exceeded my expectations. Tyler is an amazing, super accommodating host.

More than just a place to sleep

We were just looking for a place to stay for a work conventions dn ended up getting so much more. It has so much character and a space to sit and look out onto the river. We let the owner know that we wouldn't be able to make breakfast because we had a meeting to get to, but instead he made us breakfast early. And it was AMAZING. I'll definitely be back.

An Elegant, Charming Bed and Breakfast outside of Portland

The personable, kind innkeeper strove to make us comfortable and at home during our stay. Our room was clean, well furnished, air conditioned and spacious. The weekend breakfast was delicious and the innkeeper made sure there was something for everyone. The location is about 10 minutes from the old port in Portland. The inn was originally the guest house for the still operational paper mill across the street. The architecture and condition of the interior of the house is well preserved and charming. I highly recommend this inn!

The house is a large mid-Victorian era place, with high ceilings, big windows, plenty of exterior gingerbread, and nice furnishings that are neither hyper-modern nor age-worn. They suit the age and decor of the house, and are comfortable without being dauntingly fancy. We were in the house for two nights. Our room was splendid, though we did trade up to one (the largest in the place, I think) that features an en suite bathroom, rather than the shared bathroom that some rooms had on offer. Our host was outgoing and congenial, and has very definite ideas as to where he wants to take the place. We were treated (after consultation) to an "experimental" breakfast, and found it quite yummy. The large paper mill directly across the street did not pose a problem, as our initial reaction caused us to fear. We never heard it or smelled it, and it was a great landmark for finding our way back. The place is convenient to downtown Portland, yet far enough removed that it is very quiet at night, We'd be happy to return, if we find ourselves in the area again.

Nice place to stay!

This Inn is only 10 minutes to the Portland Jetport, very convenient. We needed to be at the airport at 5 am. The Inn keeper was very accommodating with any questions we had and what a super personality he has also! Definitely will recommend this place!

stayed one night - friendly staff - our room was large and well appointed - the room and the whole house is run down and need a sprucing up - the poor rating was the air conditioning was noisy and all that would have been needed was a fan as the outside temp was in the low 70s

Nice place

Nice quiet place to spend a night or two. The breakfast was delicious. The room was plain and simple. No tv in the room but in the social room with the pool table. The screened in back porch was nice, facing the river. Walking distance to downtown. Only one drawback to this beautiful B & B was sharing the bathroom.

Nice place, clean, safe, super friendly staff. Great price
