About the Property

5 Bedroom family-friendly historic home In Portland's finest neighborhood

Our light-filled townhouse is perched on a quiet corner of the historic West End residential neighborhood and is walking distance to all of Portland's finest. It's a great hub from which to explore both the vibrant city life nearby, as well as all the natural glories of Southern Maine. Whether you want to plunge into Portland's world class culinary scene, catch the current show at The Portland Museum of Art, attend the latest event at Space Gallery, take the ferry to Peaks Island, picnic at Kettle Cove, bird watch at the Audubon, or hit the outlets in Freeport and Kittery, you'll find our home a comfortable home base to return to. The house is roomy and well-appointed, perfect for families or a few friends traveling together. We can reduce the rate for longer stays.

Why the Owner Chose West End, Portland, ME, USA:
The West End is the last truly residential neighborhood in the Portland Peninsula and with its beautiful, wide tree-lined streets adorned with remarkable historic buildings and lovely gardens, it seemed like the perfect place to live and play with our daughter, while still being plugged into the vibrant life and amazing restaurants of Portland's downtown. What we love about this home is how it is flooded with light at any time of day, has all the charm and details of an antique home but all the comforts of a modern one.
