Overall, the Kingsleigh is one of the nicer inns we've stayed in. Bryan and Pamela made us feel at home the moment we arrived. There were always freshly baked treats out, lovely wine with snacks in the afternoon, and they elevated breakfast to a new high. There are cozy sitting rooms plus the porch to enjoy other guests or read/relax. There was a voluminous selection of reading material about the Mt. Desert area along with maps/guide books that are for guests use. Bryan and Pamela gave great recommendations about area hikes, restaurants, and took time to answer our many questions about the house, area, etc, We couldn't have asked for better hosts, highly recommend it and hope we can make a return visit.
