About John Wuesthoff

John and Betty are former Peace Corps Volunteers. He is now a retired attorney maintaining a professional home office in their home and she, a past director of Maine's Refugee Resettlement Program, is his part time secretary and bookkeeper when not caring for 2 grandchildren living across the bay in Falmouth, or attending their soccer games.

Periodically John travels to monitor elections being 'seconded' by the U. S. Dept. of State, to former Yugoslavia and the former Soviet Union. They are both active volunteers in an organization dedicated to the historic preservation and protection of the environmental integrity of the Eastern Promenade and long time welcomers of domestic and international visitors.

Why John Wuesthoff chose East End

We have lived in Maine for several decades and are fortunate to have purchased this large, 3 unit post colonial home in the 1990's.

Great location, charming house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed here for 3 nights. First of all, John is so nice to deal with. He met us outside at arrival. I immediately felt like we were friends. He helped with luggage and gave us a great summary of things nearby, then walked us upstairs and showed us around. The place is large and you will be comfortable here. It's very clean and obvious that John cares about his home and the people who rent from him. We parked our car and never moved it for 3 1/2 days. Ask him about his complimentary bikes and helmets. You will be able to ride everywhere you want to go. Save yourself the expense of renting bikes and stay here. He also provides free laundry room and had detergent for our use (again, another money savings to you) Portland was great, this was our first visit to the City. We also took John's bikes on the Casco Ferry to Peaks Island and spent 3 or 4 hours touring the island and relaxing. Don't miss this trip! The large bathroom here appeared to be newly remodeled. There is a huge glass walk in shower and he provides great toiletries. There were no negatives about staying here, but, to give an honest review, I have a few minor suggestions, Maybe, a window shade on the living room window (the one you see from the bedroom (we had to keep the bedroom door open at night to get the cold air from the living room A/C, and because of this, the morning sun woke us up earlier than we would have like on vacation. And the only other suggestion would be to have new bed pillows. Thanks John, if you'll have Aron and I, we'd love to return to your wonderful rental.

You’ll fall in love with it immediately

  • 5 of 5

I truly can’t say enough good things about this place and how amazing John and Betty are. John greeted us, helped us carry our bags and gave us a walk through of the apartment explaining everything. It’s a 3rd floor apartment with great views. The apartment itself is beautiful, clean, and the best place I could have found to stay in Portland. The location is perfect as well. Walking distance to everything. I can’t wait to come back for another visit some day.

The property was absolutely beautiful. It really was my home away from home.

I loved staying here and I’m kinda sad to go lol. I was here for 6 weeks during school and John and Betty did everything they could to make sure I was comfortable and happy. This was honestly the best place I’ve stayed at in all the times I’ve moved around the country for school.

wonderful apartment, great location, terrific homeowner

  • 5 of 5

was easy to book, great communication from John, also great info when we arrived. The unit was clean and very comfortable, loved the views from the dining room and fire escape. it as easy to get around, and we had a lovely time there. There was plenty of info in the apartment and John gave us some great tips- we enjoyed taking the bikes over on the ferry to Peak's Island , and another day got to ride around the Back Bay. He also gave us a coupon to Blackpoint Inn, we went for lunch and did the cliff walk, glad he suggested it as we really enjoyed it. We also went to UFF for a cider tasting, that was really neat. It was handy having the laundry available in the basement. We had some great meals at Blue Spoon and David's, also enjoyed the donuts at Holy Donut.

If one can not be happy in this charming atmosphere then one just can not be happy!

It was just perfect for us to spend our 40th wedding anniversary here. Thank you for sharing this special place. We enjoyed all the beautiful people, the scenery and food that we found in Portland ME.

What a very special place and stay in Portland, Maine

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 day stay at this location in Portland. The apartment was lovely, spacious, immaculate and in the best part of Portland. The owners were there to greet us

and to help us settle in. The one problem, for anyone with knee issues, were the stairs up

to the apt. Well worth the climb though.
