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.

the Elms

2.8 on August 15, 2017

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.

Lovely place and very kind people.

We stayed one night here on a journey up the coast. This is a lovely place with gorgeous decor, lots of original detailing in the house which is fun to wander about and look at. There are games and a pool table, plus a hot tub. Our room was great, clean and comfortable. Sharing the bathroom worked out well too, but be sure to check if the room you're reserving has a solo bathroom if you want one, as not many of them do. Breakfast was incredible, and the cook made me a wonderful gluten free bananas foster french toast. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great Stay

I booked The Elms same day and was easily accommodated by the owner. My room was comfortable and well appointed, and I thoroughly enjoyed the morning breakfast! The other guests were great to chat with and I enjoyed the short drive (about 10 mins) in to Portland to explore.

This house has amazing potential but does not yet feel homey. Our room was large but only had one lamp that worked. We tried using another bulb but the second lamp still would not work. The gentleman who greeted us was warm and friendly. The breakfast was ready as requested and delicious!

Lovely B&B with so much character

This place was soooo cute. It sits right on the water. The rooms are all beautifully decorated, the wood work is gorgeous, the wallpaper is period appropriate, the breakfast was wonderful and the price was right. We loved our stay!

A very ancient house with a particular furniture. Unfortunately the stands right in front of an industrial site which affects negatively the view. The breakfast was excellent.
