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

We have stayed at the Shore Path Cottage four times in all our visits to Acadia National Park. The innkeeper Roberta and her staff have always been gracious hosts and are all most attentive to our every need. We cannot see ourselves staying anywhere else. The former family home has been turned into a very special B&B. The immaculately maintained... More

This cozy bed and breakfast is ideally located near the ocean a short walk away from restaurants, shopping, and the Shore Path. Mark greeted us with his fabulous smile and from the moment we stepped foot into the entryway, we felt like we were visiting family. The rooms are comfortable, cozy, with private baths, some with views. Even without a... More
