Property description

The apartment is full of unique angles and design, making it a very cool place to spend your vacation. It's an open light filled space that offers a peaceful, cozy perch to overlook Portland.

Wake up and get a cup of coffee at Hilltop on the corner and then walk down to the Promenade for some morning exercise. Take a 5-minute walk down Fore Street and you'll hit a bunch of restaurants nearby like DuckFat and Eventide.

Come back for a nap, read a book, and grab some dinner back on the Hill. Like views? Walk a a few blocks up to Congress and climb the Observatory to see panoramic views of Portland. Watch the sunset from Standpipe Pipe park on North Street.

Grab some dinner at Blue Spoon or Lolita. Listen to some music at the State Theater downtown. Get some sleep and start all over with a morning walk at Mackworth Island, just a few exits away on the highway (but right across the bay).

Our apartment offers great proximity to downtown and is wonderful spot to spend a relaxing weekend in one of the best cities in America!

Car: Not Necessary

Munjoy Hill is a quiet, lovely neighborhood atop Portland. The Eastern Promenade is a great place to relax- with a small beach, sculptures, kayaking, and miles of walking area, as well as a narrow gauge railroad.

We really like all three restaurants on the Hill- Lolita, Blue Spoon, and Front Room. Rosemont is a great little grocery and there's a new market a few blocks away that recently opened up for late night snacks.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We moved to Maine to return to New England roots. Actually, Christoph comes from New England, Katie from Milwaukee. We love Portland and our home and we're excited to share them both with visitors from all over the world!

Why the Owner Chose East End, Portland, ME, USA:
This place spoke to us for its proximity to the water, the city, and the hill. And after all the work that went into it, we really feel like the neighborhood and the dwelling are all a great fit for us.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Having one's own space to relax, cook, and sleep in is a treat in a place like Portland. Being up on Munjoy Hill offers a retreat from downtown while still having great shops and restaurants.
