I had the unfortunate experience of staying at this overpriced "B&B" that neither provided the expected breakfast fare nor the clean, comfortable bed. I paid for the most expensive room at the Shore Path, ostensibly with the "incredibly breathtaking ocean view," only to find most of the ocean view blocked by a tree screen put up by the next door neighbor, whose lawn curves around in front of Shore Path's property. The linens and towels were not changed by the maid every day, and when I confronted the owner, she acted surprised that I made such a request at all. She then confronted the confused maid in front of me (the maid was just following the owner's directions) which I found extremely uncomfortable. The owner also did not have maid service until 4-4:30 pm, making relaxing/showering/changing in your room prior to the evening's activities impossible. The shower in my room was so small that the stall could not contain the water and a person's body at the same time--a good inch collected on the floor despite my efforts to keep the opening sealed with the shower curtain. Breakfast was a disappointing array of "healthy" cereals and watery, cheap coffee that could best be described as lukewarm. The owner acted put out if she was asked to cook anything for her guests, and actually requested that all of the guests come down at exactly the same time so that she didn't have to make more than one batch of eggs or pot of coffee. I actually had to walk to a coffee shop every morning to get a decent cup of coffee and a danish to start my day. Last year I stayed at another B&B in Bar Harbor, paid the same price, and was treated to a totally different experience. Hope anyone reading this will not make the same mistake that I did.
