Located inside a 19th-century Italianate home in Portland's lovely West End, this is arguably the city’s top B&B. Eight rooms feature individually distinct design touches, painted floors, faux-marble woodwork, and gas fireplaces. The carriage house room includes a private terrace whose sliding doors open onto a small garden, and breakfasts are a highlight. Also don't miss the flowery second-floor balcony and third-floor conservatory.
