adorable house-exactly as pictured!

  • 5 of 5

we had such an awesome girls weekend in portland. the house is so cute and looks exactly like the pictures, which is always a relief. The location was great because it was close enough to walk to down town but also to walk to the eastern promenade and some of the more local neighborhoods.

Beautiful Home & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely perfect stay at this Vintage/Modern Urban Cottage. The house is exactly how it is described if not better! We stayed for a yoga festival nearby and the location was perfect to walk to that, as well as many local restaurants and bars. The owners were so sweet and left us a delicious local treat, as well as walking directions with a secret shortcut to the location of our yoga festival. I highly suggest this place looking for a quiet getaway in the middle of a busy/fun city!

Clean, Walkable place to stay in Portland

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here at this remodeled house that is in Portland proper. It is a 15-20 minute walk to the seaport restaurant/shop area. There are also a few cute restaurants, grocery, and coffee shops nearby the house (3-5 minute walk). The house is clean, simple, perfect for a weekend stay. The owners were nice, easy to communicate with and prompt. We definitely recommend this house.

Great city getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little house to have a Portland getaway. Walkable to downtown and easy access to 295 to explore the rest of Maine! I've gone 2 years in a row and will go back.

Beautiful But Sleepless Nights

  • 4 of 5

Had our nights been better, we would have rated this home five stars.

What everyone says about location and decorations are absolutely true, both are great. The 3.5 - 4 star rating boils down to sleepless nights. The mattresses felt stiff as a board. We tried sleeping on the couch downstairs but it was too warm (no A/C). The other downside is the master bedroom upstairs never gets dark at night because the street lights beam through the bedroom windows (only shades, no curtains). Also, the bedroom is bright as day by 6am, so even if we wanted we couldn’t sleep in. We left our week long vacation a day early because our bodies ached, and we needed sleep. Bottom-line if you don’t need complete darkness and you prefer a stiff mattress, this will be a perfect vacation home. It just didn’t work out for us.

Owner's Response: Blackout shades on the upstairs bedroom windows are a great idea, thank you so much for that suggestion! While we've had exclusively positive feedback about the firmness of the mattresses, we are so sorry to hear that it didn't work out for you.
