We stayed at the perfectly appointed Morrill Mansion B&B based on TripAdvisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed. It's obvious from the moment you enter this delightful building that you are inside an historical treasure.
We stayed in the Vaughn room, with it's well maintained 19th century ornate casings, oak floor, beautiful period furniture, bright, but appropriate color scheme, and decoratively tiled bathroom. The window view isn't outstanding in any way, but the room had enough character that it really didn't matter to us. The bedside tables were carved antiques, the bed mission style, the two antique chairs upholstered in heavy tapestry weave, the armoire another large, mirrored antique. Somehow all of this authentic furniture was excellently maintained. There was a ceiling fan and lights, and a dvd player and tv with a huge stock of movies in case of cold or rainy weather.
The private bath was small, bright, and no obvious expense was spared on the fixtures and tile. The shower was done completely in terra cotta european-styled tile, which somehow managed to comfortably update the historical nature of the place, it had plentiful hot water and fine fixtures. Sadly, no water-saver, though. All the wall decorations were interesting and not at all the predictable and tiresome stuff that is usual in many places.
David was the proprietor, and while he was quietly and unobtrusively in the background, he always seemed available if needed for questions about the Inn or the town. The breakfast was marvelous...french toast with real Maine wild blueberries, mellons, toast, bagels, and so on. The coffee was great, too. This is a place we'll go back to next time we're up in Portland.
All in all, a really delightful experience!
