Portland Center is located on the outskirts of in- town Portland Maine. Only minutes away if you want to shop, attend the movies, theater, or dine in one of the many fine restaurants in the Old Port section of the city, yet out of the city far enough to enjoy a quiet time with a book and cool drink in our beautiful courtyard.
