We had the pleasure staying at the Aysgarth Station for 4 days during our east-coast holiday.
Out of all the places we stayed at, Aysgarth Station stands out, with an exeptional experience.
The owners, Jane and Steve, were lots of fun, nice, easy-going and relaxed- just like I'd expect ideal B&B owners to be.
The breakfasts are delicious, fresh and original (far more than the traditional english breakfast), including fresh fruits for breakfast. Another great cuisine feature is your free access to a coffee machine (real good one, not the one in simple hotels), tea, and soda throughout the day- you can just walk in and make yourself a cup- we really enjoyed having a cup of coffee on the evening, without having to pay extra for that. that was really nice. Jane, the owner, also bakes all sorts of cookies and cakes, so you have an afternoon snack as well.
As for the rooms: we stayed in the 'Whitby' room, which is smaller compared to other rooms according to the owners- it was all we needed, but if you like more space, or travelling with more than 3 big suitcases, I'd suggest going for the bigger rooms. In any case, our room was sparkling clean, the private shower and toilet looked new and again- clean. The bed was comfortable, and the street itself is very quiet. I don't think anymore needs to be said- Aysgarth Station will provide you a more than a 5 stars hotel experience. It was slightly pricey for our usual holidays budget range, but Bar Harbor itself is pricey, and the B&B price doesn't differ much from others in town, as far as I recall.
Bottom line: FANTASTIC!
1. Stay at the Whitby room if you're ok with smaller space (will save you a couple of $$)
