We stayed at the Kingsleigh Inn with 3 other couples for a few days in early October. We call ourselves an extreme supper club because we travel for food experiences. Pamela and Bryan were excellent hosts and they made us feel quite comfortable and welcome. The Inn is stylish and lovely and all you could want in a Bed and... More

We Had a friendly and accommodating experience. The room was quaint and old world. The three course breakfast (including deasert) was Proportioned perfectly. The inn is located on the Southwest side of the National Park, away from the busy downtown Bar Harbor section. If you stay, you won't be disappointed.

We discovered the Kingsleigh Inn last year and loved it so much, we decided to return for a whole week (end of September) this year. Bryan and Pamela are wonderful hosts who provide a welcoming and relaxing environment. As soon as we left, we immediately missed the amazing three-course breakfasts, gourmet coffee and teas, baked goods in the afternoon, and... More

A great B&B in a great location. Innkeepers, Brian and Pamela, could not have been better. Ditto the breakfasts, and very unique serving dessert too. Brian hosted a wine and snacks hour with lots of interesting discussions. Waterview room with all the amenities although compact(not a complaint, very comfortable). Very helpful and informative with dinner reservations and attractions around the... More

Very nice place. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The town of Southwest Harbor was very quaint and had some nice shops The house was gorgeous! Very old and well maintained. The room was very nice and we had a partial view of the harbor. The evening wine and snack time was a pleasant touch and encouraged interaction with other guests.... More

My husband and I just took our first trip to Maine this past week and stayed at the Kingsleigh for the Acadia portion of our trip. SW Harbor is definitely the quieter side of the island, but it was perfect for my husband and I who didn't love the tourist and cruise ship scene at Bar Harbor. There are plenty... More

We really enjoyed our 6 night stay at the Kingsleigh Inn. The inn is well looked after and Brian and Pamela (inn keepers) are really lovely people. I'd read excellent reviews of the inn on TA before going and I have to say the inn lived up to all of them and probably exceeded our expectations. The 3 course breakfasts... More

A lovely B&B in the center of town, walking distance from restaurants. The gourmet breakfasts will spoil you for future inns - lots of perks including espresso, freshly baked snacks, wine in the afternoon. Loved the fact that there were no televisions on the premises. Nice view of the harbor weather permitting!

Overpriced for the quality. Breakfast, although delicious, was very small. The rooms were tiny. I don't understand how anyone could like the couple running this place. The man was arrogant and smug. They both have an attitude problem. The home is unattractive and not suitable for a B&B. You can hear everyone else conversing. Check-in is in the kitchen. Our... More

Pamela and Bryan are wonderful hosts and truely go above and beyond to make your stay a memorable one. My family recently stayed at the Kingsleigh on our trip to Maine in late August. My children (age 17 & 12) had never stayed at an inn before and loved the experience; slippers and PJ bottoms worn to breakfast may have... More
