I stayed at Aysgarth Station with my partner in October 2007 as part of a 'leaf peeping' tour of New England. We stumbled across Aysgarth by chance on Google and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay.
We stayed in 'Chatsworth' which is a large room at the back on the first floor with a large ensuite and own private deck. The room had everything that we needed, from peeping into some of the other rooms they looked much smaller but still very luxurious and well equipped.
The food was excellent and we were treated to a delighful quintissential New ENgland breakfast every day, if for some reason this isn't your bag, an alternative was always available. Afternoon tea was equally delicious and I would recommend making this part of your daily intinery!
On a broader note, Bar Harbour and Arcadia are a must on any trip to New England. Bar Harbour is packed with great restaurants (recommend Cafe This Way and Cafe Bluefish) and offers great access to view the island. Best way is to buy a tour cd from the Visitor Centre (or if you're staying at Aysgarth they have them available for loan!) and follow this for a full and thorough tour.More
