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.

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

I wished I had known that the room was on the third floor. air conditioner could have been quieter. Nice breakfast

Beautiful B&B-a treasure

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!

The Adams Family' house

3.4 on August 15, 2016

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.

Perfect stay

Great stay. We are the kind of people to come and go without much fuss. I can't give a true rating of the dining experience because we didn't eat on site except for some fruit. Which was wonderful. Our room/bathroom was very clean (which is mostly what I care about during a stay anywhere!) parking was no problem, super easy to get to Downtown Portland and lighthouses and such. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

charming b&b

this b&b is has old history with many historical collections. The rooms are very clean and very old time stylish. I love it!

Great stop on our drive up the Maine coast

4.0 on May 12, 2016

Stayed here one night on our coastal tour of Maine. A quick drive into the city - in fact, it was nice to be staying a bit off the beaten path. We were the only guests at the time, but received excellent service. The breakfast was amazing!
