Our stay at Elsa's was a highlight of our trip to the Maine coast. The house is charming, comfortable and very welcoming! Megan, the innkeeper, made an incredible breakfast of baked pears, buttermilk waffles and crisp bacon. We so enjoyed sharing stories with the other guests over breakfast, trading notes on what to see and where to go. Megan's hospitality... More

Elsa's should be considered by anyone that wants to stay in the area. I felt at home from the minute I got there until the time I left. This B&B won awards in the past and it was easy to see why. The staff was very warm and they were concerned with their patrons satisfaction. I only wish I could... More

My husband & I visited Prospect Harbor, ME where we used to live & stayed at Elsa's Inn. Megan, the innkeeper was most obliging & prepared 3 different breakfast dishes to enjoy. We stayed in Dorothy's Room which is located on the porch overlooking the working harbor. It was clean and relaxing! In the morning we saw & heard the... More

We had a great two night stay at Elsa's. Megan and her mom Cindy were very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We stayed with our 10 month old son and even Megan's son got in on the hosting by playing with Maxwell and keeping him entertained. According to Megan's son, Dad is a better cook than mom. If that's true, he... More

Megan, her mom, and the rest of her family make guests feel right at home at Elsa's. It's a great location if you're planning to visit the portion of Acadia National Park located on the Schoodic Peninsula. The inn sits right across from a working harbor. The harbors at Corea and Winter Harbor are also within a few minutes drive.... More

There were 3 of us, each with a differing view. One loved it, another liked it and the third was not happy with the location. The facility is quite nice. However, a traveler should be aware that the B & B sits right on the highway and thus for some of the day there is traffic. Also, it sits across... More

I surprised my wife by booking a night at her namesake's B&B while we were touring the coast of Maine. And we stayed in Elsa's Room. The room, the house, the hostess Megan and her dad, the area and especially the breakfast were all a delight.
