“Lovely B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2009

We had a lovely stay at this peacefull B & B. The room was very comfortable and decorated beautifully, the breakfasts were fabulous, the waterfront location was so serene, it was close to Acadia park, great restaurants and Bar Harbor and the hosts were delightfull.

The hosts were very friendly and outgoing and the breakfast was exquisite. The house was beautifully decorated and it felt like we were at home. We will definitely be returning. We slept very well and would keep the windows open all night so we could smell the fresh ocean air.

This place is a sanctuary! The decor is beautiful! the Inn keepers are warm and welcoming. It is a new build so you don't get the musty smells of some older B&B's. The Breakfast is to die for! Carolyn is a gourmet chef! I can't wait for her cookbook to be published. The beds are very comfy, they remind me of the W hotel. They even left a chocolate on my pillow when the turn down service was done. We also enjoyed the close proximity to Arcadia National Park and Bar Harbor. They get 5 stars!

This place is a find!!! It is a beautiful Bed and Breakfast that is decorated right out of Town and Country. The owners are professional and know how to keep a perfectly clean place with amazing attention to detail. The room we had was perfect, quite and just what we had imaged it would be. The thing that was such a surprise was the wonderful breakfast. This place could open just as a special breakfast restaurant and there would be a line out the door.

I highly recommend it as a quiet, warm get away that is a modern newly built home with all the charm of Gingerbread Victorian.

Viking Lumber will be on the right, slow down and get in the right lane.
