Two historic West End inns are for sale, reflecting more activity in Portland’s red-hot hospitality market.

The Inn on Carleton and the West End Inn are both listed by The B&B Team’s Dana Moos, a boutique hospitality broker in Kennebunk. The Victoria-era inns were built in the late 19th century and located in the trendy West End section of the city, near the Arts District.

The Inn on Carleton, at 46 Carleton St., is listed at $1.6 million. It was built just three years after the fire of 1866 that devastated the city, and opened as Portland’s first B&B in the 1970s, according to the listing.

The West End Inn, which is listed on the city’s Register of Historic Homes and built in 1871, is listed at $1.3 million.

Both have six guest rooms with private baths, period details and furnishings and interesting architecture.

The two historic inns are part of city’s hospitality sector, which is in the midst of a huge expansion. Five hotels are in the pipeline for Portland, representing more than 650 new rooms to the city’s existing base of 2,685 lodging rooms.
