Very convenient, clean, comfortable, close to everything, AND enjoyed nice views of downtown harbor

  • 5 of 5

It was our first visit to Maine and we chose Portland as a place to stay. Both myself and my daughter separately looked for a place online to stay and funny we both came up with this unique looking place in downtown Portland. We both were reluctant only because it was labeled a penthouse and that sounded a little too off the course of what our original intentions of locating a nice bed and breakfast or more historic quant style place as it was just myself, my wife, and my teenage daughter. It however was very contemporary yet with the restored bricks still held a very historic feel we appreciated and was more our style, so it holds a old and new feel all tied together. The private small porch perched over the city was a treat. I loved the safety and security we felt here as it can require up to 3 different security codes to be entered before accessing the apt. Parking arrangements were nice and easy and Chris even offered me early parking privliges before check-in. Great stay in a great place, would stay there again most definitely recommend.

Awesome views in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with some friends over a long weekend to go leaf peeping in and around Portland. The location is right down by the docks, and there's everything you could need within walking distance (except for a grocery/drug store, but that's just a a half-mile down the road). The condo is a quiet little retreat off of a very busy strip of road which makes it ideal for sitting on the deck and enjoying a coffee in the morning or a local craft beer at night. The quality of everything in the place was amazing and we loved being able to cook up a big breakfast one morning so we didn't have to go out. It's going to be hard to come to Portland and NOT stay here, it was that amazing.

Originally built in the early 1850's, this newly renovated property is located in the heart of the historic Old Port section of the Portland. This completely unique property is a prime location for a true Portland urban experience. Guests are literally steps away from Fishmongers and Butchers, coffee shops, fine dining, street carts, fresh fruit and produce, ferry rides to the islands in the bay, biking and walking trails, beaches, swimming, concerts, street festivals, truly unique retail shops, Bars to Brewery tours, Duck boat to trolley tours. The to do list is endless. Or you can choose to do nothing and retreat into the elevator to the sixth floor and observe all of this from one of the taller renovated warehouses on the street.
