Classic Hospitality in Portland's West End
This lovingly restored West End Inn was designed by John Calvin Stevens and constructed in 1871. The townhouse-style building was originally purchased by Freedom Nash, a local stove dealer, and is rich in original architectural detail. It remained a private residence until 1984 when it was converted to a bed and breakfast. In April of 2019, all 6 of our guest rooms were beautifully updated with all new paint, designer wallpaper, furnishings and bedding.
The West End Inn proudly sits within Portland’s prestigious West End, a residential neighborhood renowned for its brick-lined avenues, historic architecture and refined character. Just two blocks from the Inn, the graceful Western Promenade boasts Olmsted-designed walkways and grand western views across Maine to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and beyond.
Within short walking distance of the Inn are excellent restaurants, shops and Portland’s vibrant Arts District and the Portland Museum of Art. Walking from the West End Inn to the Old Port District takes about 15-20 minutes.
*Please note: Our property does not have an elevator.
Portland was named USA’s 2018 “Restaurant City of the Year” by Bon Appetit Magazine
Your West End Inn Hosts
Diane, Maria & Alex
Whether you are here on business, a vacation or just passing through…our goal is to help make your visit to Portland a special one. We look forward to hosting your stay and ensure you get an incredible night’s sleep, along with a delicious breakfast each morning. And it will be our pleasure to share suggestions on the local sites and sounds of Southern Maine. While we are new and still exploring the area, we have fallen in love with all that Portland has to offer, and our beautiful west end neighborhood is second to none. Because with so much to explore, you’ll never run out of adventures!
For the past 5 years we’ve enjoyed hosting our guests at a much larger, beach-side resort in York Beach Maine…where summers burst at the seams with friends and families enjoying the Maine coast. And now, we are truly excited to be in Portland, where the incredible food culture, arts, shops, history and old seaport vibe are attracting guests from all over the world!
