This small, tasteful B&B is located on a busy downtown street in a historic brick home that dates back to 1835. It's well located for exploring the city on foot, and well kept by friendly owners John and Nancy Gonsalves. Guests can linger or watch TV in the front parlor, or chat at the dining table in the adjacent room (communal breakfasts here are a highlight -- unless you're shy). The accommodations are all corner rooms, and most are bright and sunny. Especially nice is the Spring Room, with its queen sleigh bed, hardwood flooring, and wonderful views of the historic row houses along Park Street; and crimson-hued Gables, on the third (top) floor, which gets plenty of afternoon light and is furnished with a king bed, big sitting room, and nice bathroom. The Portland Museum of Art is only 2 blocks away, the Old Port about 10 minutes away, and great restaurants are within an easy walk.
