Portland condo description

(Note: If this listing is not available when you want it, please look at our other property, located in the same building: http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p3489488).

Our Carriage House was built in the 1870's. In the early 2000s, it was divided into two condominium units and renovated. The front unit (157 Pine Street)--the unit you'll be staying in--was done in a traditional style, with old hard wood flooring and exposed brick. It was renovated in 2007 using the best materials and finishes. The structure is set back from the street, making it especially quiet. The West End neighborhood is Portland's most picturesque. You'll enjoying exploring it.

This property is within walking distance from Portland's great restaurants, museums, shopping and nightlife scene. Not less than four sand beaches are within a 25 minutes drive. Skiing is an hour to two hours away depending on where you want to go. It's easy to catch a ferry from the Old Port that will take you out to islands in Casco Bay for a day trip.

Bottom line, while staying at the Carriage House you will have plenty to do. You can venture out to sightsee and enjoy nature, or you can enjoy the comfortable interior. Either way, you're in for a great experience.

Note: The upstairs bedrooms (but not the bathrooms) share an open cathedral ceiling. Noise does travel between the rooms. Please contact us if you have questions.

                We really enjoyed this house, it looks great in the pictures and its even better in person. Beautiful hardwood floors, great kitchen and really nice bedrooms. The bedrooms do all share the same ceiling so everyone will hear everyone if there is snoring etc. the house is in a nice neighborhood and is about 1.3 mile walk to center of downtown so very walkable or a short taxi ride. I highly recommend this house for Portland visits.

                Home is as nice as it looks in the photos. The owners are very responsive to any concerns and wonderful in recommending some local sites. My family of five, including 3 teens, found the home comfortable and clean. Would very much recommend this to anyone interested in staying in the Portland area. Enjoyed the kayak class at LL Bean, the 'mail boat' ferry run out of the Portland Wharf, many restaurants in Portland (even though I could have cooked in the beautiful kitchen at this home!)

                Some friends and I stayed at the Carriage House for a wedding, and it was a great place to rest up between activities. It's outside Portland's hustle and bustle, in a cute, quiet, residential neighborhood. But it's close enough to everything to walk, drive, or take a cab. The setup is immaculate, and the house has every amenity to make an extended stay comfortable. We all highly recommend this place!

                We recently spent 4 nights at the Carriage House during my son's wedding week end. I can not say enough good about our experience. The location and accommodations were perfect (as long as you keep in mind the openness of the ceiling upstairs.) We were all family, so this was no problem for us. Do NOT hesitate to rent this beautifully restored space. During our visit, there was an early summer heat wave, so we were very glad to have central air. .

                I recently rented this property for a wedding weekend in Maine with some of my old college girlfriends, and the place was great! It was located in the historical section of Portland in a beautiful neighborhood and was only a short drive from all the shops and restaurants in Old Port. We had three cars total and parking was never an issue. The interior is absolutely beautiful with a giant, full service kitchen. The bedrooms were exactly as described with two spacious full bathrooms upstairs. The space was calming and peaceful, and I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for something more special and welcoming than a hotel room. We fit 6 adults comfortably, but I will note that if you have multiple couples staying, the bedrooms share a ceiling and sound travels quite easily. There were two living spaces and a beautiful open floorplan. My only regret is that we could not stay in this space longer!

                We stayed at this property as a family of 5-my husband, me, my parents and teenaged brother. Although the property is a condo, it had more than enough space for us all. The place is an ideal blend of modern convenience and historic charm. I loved the exposed brick and antique hardword floors, and also appreciated the air conditioning and modern, gourmet kitchen. The location was great, within walking distance to the old port, but far enough away to feel secluded. I would highly recommend this place, and hope to stay again in the future.

                We stayed in this condo for our daughter's wedding in August, 2011. Could not have been more pleased, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. There is such a sense of history staying there but every modern convenience you could ever imagine or want. Trust me these pictures do not do this condo justice, it almost seemed magical, especially when the trolley was at the front of the walk to pick us up for the church!! We could not have been more pleased and have some stunning photos to prove it!!

                Absolutely perfect! Location, ambiance, decor, a kitchen to die for. Three bedrooms handled 6 adults with the open seating area well suited for conservation and light libations. Walk / bike to town - Good food - excellent seafood at the docks to bring home - scallops with garlic, white wine, butter and wine with french bread. Yum Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. Oh, a set up MAC to check the WEB was the crowning point.

                This property is great, location close to downtown in the nicest area in Portland close to shopping and restaurants. The Carriage House is a top notch renovation, a relaxing place to be, we were in Portland on business and it was a better alternative to staying in a hotel.
