Charming spot...we stayed in the Chelsea room with its own private balcony. No TV's but we were not there for that sort of entertainment. great breakfasts,,,very pleasant hosts. Traffic in town, however, is horrific//////they are redoing the streets and we had to wait 50 minutes to get into town and then leave town. Truly the most inefficient road crews I... More

We read the very favorable reviews on Trip Advisor and wholeheartedly agree! Our room (the Chelsea) was most comfortable, with a balcony overlooking the harbor. Bed very good. The breakfasts were amazing with a choice of two entrees preceded by juice and fruit, a small pastry and coffee. And then we had dessert to complete breakfast! Bryan and Pamela offered... More

Spent three nights in the Victoria Room recently. From arrival to departure, we were treated like favorite quests. The Inn, right in the heart of town, but oh so quiet inside, is immaculate. There is plenty of room to relax, in the living room, library, family room and on the decks. Our bedroom was large and had the most comfortable... More

My husband and I spent our last two nights in Maine at the Kingsleigh Inn and it was very memorable. Pamela greeted us warmly and recommended XYZ for dinner which was top-notch real Mexican food. Bryan was an amazing host as well. The food and details at this B & B were unparalleled. We've stayed at numerous places on vacations... More

This is our third time have a wonderful vacation on Mt. Desert Island. Our stay at Kingsleigh Inn was perfect. We love the quiet side of the island for obvious reasons and Kingsleigh Inn was located very conveniently and with a beautiful view of the Harbor to boot! Every breakfast we had was incredible and we had 5 different ones!... More

I am not a “good B&B person.” Typically I prefer the anonymity and standardization of top-end chain hotels to anything a B&B can offer. But on Mount Desert Island in Maine, there are no chain hotels. The options are B&Bs and inns or camping. Faced with this, my wife and I chose Kingsleigh Inn and we came away very impressed.... More

My wife and I have been coming to Mound Desert Island for the past 20+ years, each year on our wedding Anniversary. We found the Kingsleigh Inn after our reservation by a Bar Harbor bed and breakfast was canceled the week before we were supposed to leave. After 20 years of going to Bar Harbor we decided to change side... More

Pamela and Bryan are wonderful hosts who know the area and make guests feel at home. Rooms are newly redone and each one has an outside porch w chairs so guests can enjoy a harbor view. Grab some wine, coffee, and spiced nuts and enjoy. Bryan creates a fresh fruit drink every morning. Have fun guessing ingredients. Location gives easy... More

We went back to the Kingsleigh Inn for our fourth time in August of 2013. We already have reservations for August of 2014. Pamela and Bryan are great hosts. Breakfasts are always phenomenal and I've traded recipes with Pamela over the last couple of years. There's always something to do in Southwest Harbor and they have been very helpful in... More

The Kingsleigh Inn is absolutely adorable and definitely the place to stay on MDI if you're looking for something on the quieter side. The Inn is run by Pam and Ryan who are the nicest, most welcoming couple - they really make you feel at home! They make a three course breakfast for you every morning and the food is... More
