This is a vintage apartment - on the second floor with totally separate entrance - nicely restored, and updated. The entire building as well as the small yard area is nonsmoking, and of course guests should be as well.

NEiGHBOrHOOD: Pleasant and popular residential neighborhood very close to the Eastern Prom and East End Beach, and also to two local markets, three fantastic Hill restaurants (Lolita’s, The Front Room, and The Blue Spoon), and the Hilltop Coffee House (all about a 4 minute walk).

ACTIVITIES NEARBY: From your rental, you can hear fog horns, see the moon rise over the bay, or find a great meal at the local places - about a block away. From the East End, Portland Trails provides a lovely walking trail along the water into downtown Portland. Ferry (or water taxi) over to one of the many islands in Casco Bay to spend the day paddling or walking around, or take the 'mail boat' which stops at a handful of islands and makes a fun day trip. Outlet shopping is 20 minutes away in Freeport – easy on to highway north from the Prom.

BEACHES: East End Beach (5 minutes walk) is located at the waterfront at Eastern Promenade Park. Other local beaches are an easy 15 minute drive to South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, or Scarborough.

More about “the Hill” and Portland –

Munjoy Hill overlooks Portland’s most scenic waterfront, - you can lounge on the large lawn overlooking the water all day, and find food from the various food trucks that station themselves along the Promenade.

The Hill is directly connected to Portland's extensive walking/running/biking trail system, including a beautiful 5-mile oceanside loop. From here you can walk or bike to the beach, numerous parks, and almost everywhere in Portland! The nearby Old Port is known for its cobblestone streets, small boutiques in beautifully refinished brick buildings, the docks where fishing boats still come back home after a day of fishing, and more restaurants per capita than any other city. Portland is considered a foodie's paradise.

The Downtown Arts District is home to galleries, theatre, the symphony, the Maine College of Art, and the renowned Portland Museum of Art. Each month, the First Friday Art Walk draws hundreds of culture-loving Portlanders. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, Portland hosts one of the top-rated Farmers' markets in the country.

Downeast Magazine's recent article 'Cool on the Hill' characterizes this area as the hippest area in Portland. The apartment is steps from the Eastern Promenade park – overlooking Portland’s best section of waterfront, a beautiful lookout onto Casco Bay - and an easy 4 minute walk to several restaurants, Rosemont Market, and Hilltop Coffee. The Old Port and its attractions - including what seems like millions of incredible restaurants, shops, and the ferry to the islands, is at the bottom of the hill – about a 15 minute walk from the house. In the kitchen you'll find an extensive personal guide to the apartment, the neighborhood and area, We’ll be happy to provide more guidance as to restaurants, sailing, ferries, etc., if you like. The number and variety of options can be overwhelming.

I have lived in this neighborhood for a long time - about 40 years. It has changed greatly - and several times. When I moved here, Munjoy Hill housed working class families, - Now it appears to be the most popular place to locate in Portland - no doubt due to the incredible waterfront we have up here, and easy access to points north by car, and Portland by foot (or car).
