Taylor responded quickly when we needed him to, and otherwise allowed us our privacy. My friends and I had a wonderful stay.

This house is perfect for a large group. We had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and enough common areas so that we never felt crowded. The location was very nice and easily accessible to downtown Portland.

Taylor & Elisabeth are AMAZING hosts! I traveled to Portland, ME for the first time with a group of my closest friends for my bachelorette. The house was more than we could have hoped for with plenty of space for us all to sleep comfortably. Upon arrival we were welcome with the most delicious box of donuts from Holy Donut and a bottle of champagne. Taylor & Elisabeth are so thoughtful to leave these welcome gifts at the house. Being a big foodie, Portland has too many options to possibly fit in over and long weekend so it was such a treat to be able to check off an item on the foodie bucket list before we even unpacked our bags! The house is perfectly located to walk to close shops and restaurants or grab a quick uber down to Commercial Street. We loved every minute of our stay and I will always keep this house as well as Taylor & Elisabeth in mind for my next visit back to Portland!

We were so pleased with our stay at the Francis Fasset House. The home was spacious, elegant, beautiful and historical. When we arrived there was a nice note accompanied by local goodies to welcome us - so thoughtful! The home had everything we needed to comfortably accommodate 8 girls from all over the country for a bachelorette weekend. I had a few questions over the course of the weekend and our hosts responded almost instantly, which was very appreciated. I am so pleased we chose the Francis Fasset house and highly recommend!

Taylor and Elizabeth were great hosts! They left us some goodies from local Maine businesses to enjoy during our stay. The house was beautiful and was exactly what we were looking for. There was plenty of rooms/space to accommodate our large group. The house is conveniently located, about a 5 minute ride to downtown and 3 minute ride to Thompson point, also there are plenty of restaurants and places to go within walking distance of the house. I would definitely recommend this property.

Taylor User ProfileTaylor is a superhost.

Elisabeth and I were both born and raised in Maine and are glad to have returned to Maine's most robust and thriving big small-town! We are excited to share the wonders of this historic abode with you and your friends/family.

We are deep lovers of art, music, food, and drink. Elisabeth is a high school teacher at a local alternative school, and I work at a law office in the heart of Portland. We encourage guests to plan their own adventures in our beautiful city, and are more than delighted to recommend our favorite Portland culinary, cultural and civic highlights during your stay.

We look forward to providing you a home away from home.
