WEST END HISTORICAL QUEEN ANNE CASTLE, OVER LOOKING THE FORE RIVER

Portland Castle Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathrooms. Gourmet Kitchen, Library, Grand Spiral Staircases

A private, single family home in the west end of historical significance. The house is oriented to the water so that every room takes advantage of the shifting sun and water views towards the fore river. This home is in perfect condition, with all the original queen anne details and modern necessities. There are three tiers of connected porches that promote expansive water views. The top levels of living has several bedrooms-all with exquisite feel of space. On the top floors (4th) is a family room, surrounded by three bedrooms and a marbled bathroom. The third floor has a grand master suite, with a private porch, and exquisite master bathroom, with onyx-tiled radiant heat floor. The laundry room is conveniently located on this level. The formal entry level has a library, with two sitting rooms and private porch. The grand entrance with spiral staircases and stained glass is breath-taking. On the family level (1st floor) is a new truly gourmet kitchen overlooking the water. The floor is slate with soapstone counters. Off the kitchen is a family-tv room and a mudroom with a bathroom. This all connects to a private fenced-in yard with a brick patio porch over looking the distant water. This house is an amazing unique jewel and one of the ' 4 little red castles' on the western promenade. Walk to the old port, down town, hospital, amazing restaurants etc.

  • non smoking only

I have been an Innkeeper for most of my life. I have experience in keeping my guests happy and I enjoy creating a dream vacation. My home is unique and amazing. You will be very pleased.

Shannon Gordon purchased this castle in 2013

This property is unique and historical. The West End of Portland is breath taking and has a tight community. It's very rare a home comes up for rent. You will be experiencing something rare.

I will take my time at check in to go over everything in the home and the community. I know all the special spots and I will assist you with any questions on activities, food etc. I know how to pamper guests...

Wrap your Portland getaway in amazing luxury

  • 5 of 5
Stunning interior that is tastefully decorated in a chic Downeast style; loaded with beautiful artwork, photographs, and reminders of the rich culture that surrounds the entire Maine seacoast.

Comfortably sleeps a large family or multiple couples. Wonderful bathrooms that are well furnished, including beautiful fixtures. Many places to sit and read, share stories, or relax after a busy day exploring Portland. The kitchen is amazing for any number of meals -- built to professional standards with high quality appliances. Sit in the myriad of outdoor spaces for a meal, chat, or quiet time watching ships transit through the Portland waterways.

The home is a 15 minute walk to Old Port, and 10 minutes from the western edge of the downtown district. Runners rejoice in hip urban streets to jog through, with quiet streets allowing a comfortable run.

Surround yourself in history, luxury, and easy access to the entire Midcoast region. You will *not* regret it.

Notes:
The West End is a very private neighborhood and you can walk to everything. There are only a few weekly rentals here due to they are private grand homes. You can walk to some of the best restaurants in Maine, close to beaches, or take a ferry to one of Portland's beautiful Islands. The west end area is historical. You are also in walking distance to Maine medical center.
