Lovely 2 bedroom, 1 bath townhouse located on the top of Munjoy hill, 2 blocks from the Eastern Promenade. Munjoy Hill overlooks the downtown and harbor to the south, Casco Bay and its islands to the east and north, and shallow Back Cove to the west, at the northeastern end of Portland's peninsula.
Though less than a mile from the heart of downtown Portland and Interstate Highway 295, Munjoy Hill is relatively free of traffic. While densely settled, it is almost exclusively residential and due to the shape of the peninsula it is isolated from the major commuter routes. Congress Street, downtown Portland's main artery, ends quietly at the Eastern Promenade.
The most significant land feature of Munjoy Hill is the magnificent Eastern Promenade, a park designed by the Olmstead Brothers design firm, as was Baxter Boulevard, which rings part of Back Cove. This Olmstead park has amazing water vistas wrapping from the sunset view at the Loring memorial above the shore for over a mile to a sunrise view over the Calendar Islands of Casco Bay and Portland Head Light, and ending at Fort Allen Park with a full sweep of Portland Harbor. The park includes a series of broad rolling fields, public gardens, monuments, playgrounds and ball courts on top of the bluff and, along the waterfront, East End Beach, picnic areas, and a municipal boat launch.
My name is Carrie LeBlanc and I started renting my furnised apartments last year. I love offering visitors to Portland a cozy, homey spot to stay while they are away from home.

Portland is a great small city. Lots to do and many great restaurants.
Best benefit is definitely its close proximity to the Eastern Promenade.
Nice townhouse and owner. Appears to have been recently renovated and/or very well kept. Cool neighborhood within walking distance to most of Portland's attractions as well as neighborhood charm. Only 2 negatives and they were very minor issues. Staying here with 4 people, it would have been nice to have a 1/2 bath downstairs. This probably wouldn't be a big issue for 2 or 3 people, however. Also, there is some pretty major utility construction/improvement going on in the neighborhood, which just adds a little clutter and extra noise and activity. Once complete, I'm sure everything will be cool.
