We had a really nice time at Shore Path Cottage. Warm and friendly reception. Lisabeth were so welcoming, just as if we were part of family. Breakfast was delicious! The location was excellent, close to everything. Amazing view of the beach! Highly recommended!

During our 6 weeks in USA/Canada we stayed in 14 Bed and Breakfast properties. This property is highly recommended. The word to describe it is 'homely' and this is appropriate as it has been the family home for more than 40 years. We were given Bob's room which at first we thought to be very basic although the bathroom had... More

We had a delightful, restful time at Shore Path Cottage B&B. We were greeted and welcomed with such kindness. Wine in the evening overlooking the bay was so peaceful. Breakfasts were delicious including amazing homemade baked goods. Our bed was so comfortable. Acadia sunrise, sunsets and hikes were remarkable. It was a short walk on a path to a charming... More

My husband and I stayed here as our get - away for our 10th Anniversary. I'll start by saying how lovely the Owner's warm and friendly reception was; she brought us sweet ice tea and chatted while we waited for the room to be ready. The rooms were very clean, larger than they looked in the pictures, and comfortable. The... More

Absolutely loved everything about this B&B. Location is great...an easy walk down the shore path to town. The hosts have been living in this home since the 1970's and it really does feel very comfortable and homey. We actually stayed in a very large suite in a cottage that was connected to the main house and could actually accommodate about... More

The owner makes you feel right at home. Lovely rooms with bath. Walk through the yard to the Shore Path. Downtown 10 minute walk. Very relaxing. Close to Acadia National Park. If your looking for a 5 star luxury hotel, this isn't for you. But as our first experience in a B&B we were very happy here. Also, Lisbeth makes... More

When I read the reviews of Shore Path before I visited, I marveled at the variety of descriptions of the visitor's experiences there, and now that I have been there, I think the differences can be explained by what one expects from a B&B. A stay at Shore Path is not a luxurious experience, and the cotttage is not a... More
