I was born and raised in a smaller town about an hour north of Portland, fishing, picking blueberries, & mowing lawns. I attended the University of Maine as an undergraduate and have watched the city of Portland grow into the fantastic area it is now. My roots will always be in Maine as I'm also affiliated with the local radio station Hot 104.7. I stay connected to the Portland area often, frequent the up & coming restaurants and am intimately familiar with the area (and surrounding areas), so if you need help planning your trip or recommendations while you’re there, just let me know!
Tiff purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Tiff chose Downtown
This condo is exactly what I wanted. The building and unit are very unique with the original structures. The unit is in immaculate condition, & the amazing water/harbor/city views combined w/ the outdoor space can't be beat. 340 Fore St is the perfect location, next to my favorite restaurants & activities, and it gives you the ability to walk to practically everywhere you would want. You can rent a car but it isn't necessary & Uber is available in Portland anyway.
What makes this Condo unique
Literally steps from Fore St & Central Provisions, two nationally ranked & recognized restaurants.

We loved the location and hope to stay at this same spot the next time we come! Very clean also
Old Port Charm
I rented this apartment for my daughter for a few days, and she will be returning to it a short time later. It has a lot of steps which may be a problem for some (not for me at age 77). But for the reasonably fit the climb is worth it. The waterside view over the historic buildings on Fore Street and across the bay has to be one of the best in the city. On the landward side you have an excellent view high above the cobbled streets of the Old Port. Well equipped and clean, it has everything we wanted. My daughter was here in late January, so there was no sitting outside, but at milder times of year it should be magnificent. I strongly recommend.
Perfect location, walk to great restaurants, bakeries and coffee/tea shops
We stayed here for two weeks in December. Although it wasn't the ideal time to be in Portland but we loved the quiet of the city and we were able to walk into popular restaurants without reservations. If you're a foodie you will love the close proximity to all the popular restaurants, bakeries, coffee and tea shops. Parking was a little challenging because we it could be pricey if you park in the near garages. There are street parking in front of the building but it's not always easy to find a spot. We ended up parking in an outdoor parking lot. Also, just be mindful of the stairs, there are 3 flights of stairs to the apartment, another flight to the bedroom upstairs. Just keep this in mind if you have heavy luggage. There's a small bbq on the deck. Kitchen supplies are available to cook meals, lots of bathroom supplies, laundry detergent, etc. The host, Tiffany is friendly and she answers my questions in a timely manner. Highly recommended!
Spacious and well equipped
My wife and I stayed for three nights, and it was perfect for our long weekend in Portland. The apartment is clean and well equipped, and has great views of both Old Port and of the harbor. Check-in and check-out was easy too. It is a walk-up, so keep that in mind, but it didn't bother us at all. Highly recommended.
Great place and time
Awesome location and owner is very responsive and helpful. Will be coming back.
Perfect location - gorgeous area
Everything as stated. Clean and cozy. Amazing views. All the housewares/linens we needed. Mornings and afternoons on the deck were fantastic. Central to wherever you wanted to be. As with other reviews, must pay attention to the stairs, basically 3 stories up and additional to the bedroom. We, however, didn't mind the exercise! Would definitely come back.
Perfectly located in the charming "Old Port" area of Portland, my vacation rental is located at the top of a historical building, with views of the harbor, marina, water, & the city. The "Old Port" has everything: the best restaurants in the city, bars & nightlife, & easy walking distance to all activities. Eat at 5 star restaurants (Fore St, Central Provisions) or grab the quintessential lobster roll at Maine Lobster Company. Shop along the piers and among the cobblestone streets, walk along the waterfront and through the Eastern Promenade, taking in the best views in Portland, & pick up local veggies at the farmer's market. Try your skills paddleboarding or sailing, & then grab a homemade ice cream cone (I recommend black raspberry).
