Four of us traveled New England for two weeks and spent two nights at the Kingsleigh Inn. We chose it because we wanted to be in a quieter area away from Bar Harbor which seemed too touristy. What a treat to get to know Pamela and Brian who are congenial, humorous hosts, to have their knowledge of the area and the nearby restaurants, and, most of all, to experience their delicious treats and breakfast. Other reviews mention the afternoon treats, the wine and appetizers and three course breakfasts. but the quality is what makes it special. Pamela loves to cook and the food shows her attention to detail and flavor. We will stay there again at this beautiful place when we return to spend more time at Acadia National Park.
