PORTLAND'S WESTEND APARTMENT CHARMING PEACEFUL W/2 EXPOSED CHIMNEYS

Portland Apartment Rental Photos and Description

'Pied de terre' Charming Small Apartment that is Perfect for 2 or 3

This is a great vacation destination located in a residential neighborhood in the heart of Portland's Historic West End district. You will be just a minute's walk away from great eating...a gourmet deli (Aurora's), great brick oven pizza (Bonobo's) and fantastic European cusine at Caiola's Restaurant. You can enjoy great live music in a small venue just minutes away at 'One Longfellow Square' and then there is the Portland Museum of Art down the street and around the corner. You can also be off on a bike and down the hill to ride the beautiful bike paths along Casco Bay. (Bike rental avaliable, only a 5 minutes walk from home).

Visit the historic Old Port District .... you can walk or bike there. It has a wealth of great restaurants, cafes, bars, parks, and of course shopping and If you like fresh seafood you are in the right place to consume your fill of lobster, crabs, clams, shrimp, haddock and of course local oysters!

You can go to local cinemas, see independent films, local theater, comedy clubs, chamber and classical music venues and of course the beach for swimming, kayaking, boating...! Truly something for everyone.

Our vacation apartment is warm, welcoming and cozy with wide pumpkin pine floors and two exposed chimneys. It is housed in a typical large New England home on the second floor with a completely private and separate entrance.

Nestled in the heart of the West End on a quiet residential dead end street there is no passing traffic to disturb you. You look out to our courtyard and front garden. In the kitchen we provide teas/coffee/spices as well as all the basics you would need to cook at home if you wish. The two bedrooms are very simple and peaceful with queen beds and duvets of goose down. We have many books for you to browse through and enjoy as well as a Sound System where you can dock your IPod and also listen to CD's from our eclectic collection...Jazz to the worlds most famous Arias to French Wrap... hopefully something for everyone.

The airport (Portland International Jetport) is just a ten minute taxi ride away and the bus/train station is down the hill. You can fly into Boston's Logan Airport and take a bus to Portland (they leave every hour). Remember that it would be completely doable to explore Portland by foot and/or bike...there is no need for a car unless you want to further your adventure to the many other interesting places within reasonable driving distance. For example, Freeport, Maine, offers the super bowl of factory store shopping...just a 20 minute ride north. You may be familiar with LL Bean, J Crew, Gap, Northface, Brooks Brothers, Cole Hahn, Reebok, to name only a few...

There are churches, banks, cafes, restaurants, art galleries... all within walking distance.

I hope that this description and overview will give you a general sense of the kind of experience available to you while staying in our small cozy apartment in beautiful Portland, Maine.

Please note that this is a completely non smoking property, that is on the second floor with step up and step downs as well as a claw foot bathtub. It is a charming, warm and even romantic space, but not a good fit for everyone. It is not suited for children or folks who have any significant physical limitations.

Thank you for your visit to our site and please email us with any questions!

Our apartment is off the beaten path, but right in Portland's well known West End district. If you are looking for a typical, upscale modern apartment this may not be for you, but if you are looking for old, charming, cozy and peaceful we think you will love this space.

It is a private 2nd floor apartment with a totally private and separate entrance in a typical older New England home.

Two-bedrooms, sleeps four, but is really suited for 2 or 3 adults as it is a small space. Furnished w/all amenities including washer and dryer, WiFi/cable TV, IPod sound system and private parking right in front.

Queen size beds w/goose down duvets. Bathroom w/claw foot tub/shower. Fully stocked kitchen (teas/coffee/spices).

You don't need to use your car...park and walk everywhere! Museum/market/dining/shopping...

Take a Ferry and bike on the many Islands off Portland. Music, music and more music just a short walk away...

Maine Medical Center 5 minute walk

Airport, Bus and Train station all just a 10 minute drive.

My husband and I bought this house in 2001 and lived in this apartment for 10 years. My husband worked at Maine Medical Center just a few minutes away and is now semi-retired. We love the city of Portland and especially the West End. We biked and walked everywhere we needed or wanted to go...winter/summer! We have a small home north of Portland and want to retain our well loved house on Houlton Street by sharing it with you and others who want to visit this very special part of the world!

Janey Barthelette purchased this apartment in 2001

This property is unique...it is warm, simple and charming. It is not a good fit for everyone it is inviting and peaceful filled with books and music. If you are looking for modern/predictable and perfect this is not for you.

It is located right in the heart of the famous WestEnd district of Portland, but is located on a private street that has no drive thru traffic, making it peaceful and quiet, perfect for sleeping in...

We provide private parking for one vehicle right in front of the house, we can not offer additional parking. This apartment is also not suited for small children.

Charming Apartment

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a stay at this wonderful apartment. It was centrally located, and was perfect. We loved the charm of this old quaint place, from the sloping floors, to the claw foot tub. We tried all of the recommendations for restaurants, and grocers. And the tenants downstairs were very helpful and friendly. Jane was wonderful to work with and this little gem was clean, and well maintained. Although there was no AC, the fans did the trick.

Charming West End Hide-a-way

  • 5 of 5
Stayed a long weekend, (4 days), in this lovely Portland West End apartment. Two couples, ages 54-65. Apartment was immaculate and incredibly well appointed for a VRBO rental. The owners have made great use of the available space with not an inch wasted. Kitchen was very well stocked with cooking needs, there was a great collection of CD's, a D/W AND a washer & dryer, two comfortable beds and a lovely garden area, all packed into a pocket off a dead end street, (which = quiet), in West End.
No need for a car, as we walked everywhere, (and I DO mean everywhere), in Portland.
Thank you JaneyB & Chris for sharing your home with us!

A Little West End Hideaway

  • 4 of 5
This was a charming apartment on the second floor of an old house in Portland's west end. It is walking distance to everything, and had a lovely "secret garden" quality. It was clean, quiet and comfortable, with a very amiable downstairs tenant ready and willing to help with anything since the owner wasn't present. Unfortunately, it was very hot the first night, and there was no air conditioning, apparently usually not needed in Portland, but my sister and I were quite uncomfortable...fans just don't do it. Once it cooled off, though, we were fine. We also had some problems with the shower and toilet, but these were fixed asap. I wouldn't recommend this place for older folks due to the inherent danger of having to step high in and out of the old claw foot tub as well as all the irregularities in the floor boards, a real tripping hazard. The owner made this clear when she said "this place isn't for everyone". But if you like old and charming, and sort of a French garret feel, this place will please you. The owner's books and lovely little works of art were also so pleasing. Overall, I'd recommend it-just beware the tub, floorboards, and if it matters to you, lack of air conditioning...Even Portland gets hot and humid!

Portland Maine quaint apartment

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment and it was perfect in everyway....We loved the location and charm of the apartment. It was within walking distance to everything in Portland. The apartment was clean and provided everything one would need for a pleasant stay. Unfortunately we arrived at the beginning of a heat wave and even though the apartment came with 3 fans......air conditioning would have been a big plus! We would definately consider staying here again if the opportunity to return to Portland ever came our way.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a few summer days in the Portland area. The apartment was spotless, the beds comfortable and the kitchen well stocked! The location is very close to an area with excellent restaurants, yet it is tucked away on a quiet street. We walked or biked everywhere. It was warm..but the fans did the job and we slept well. Jane was very accommodating, given our last minute plans. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends or relatives.
