Our visit to Bar Harbor was made even better by staying at Stage Coach Inn!! This is my third trip to the area and absolutely the best. Deborah, the innkeeper, was so informative as to things going on in the area. When she realized I am a gardener, she suggested two gardens in the area that were open year round and another open for just the week-end. They were all wonderful! In addition, she told us about a cooking school featuring Maine foods. What a treat to learn how to cook a lobster!
My room was a small suite upstairs in the inn with a separate sitting area, bedroom, bath and foyer. The linens and towels were top notch, and the mattress was extra comfortable!! A wonderful retreat for some quiet time.
As if all this were not enough, Deborah is also an excellent chef. She prepared the breakfasts personally every morning - a three course feast - such a luxury. It would be difficult to say which was my favorite. She even incorporated a native Maine plant, fiddlehead, in a spring vegetable fritatta, similar to a quiche, one morning and used Maine blueberries in a wonderful lemon-blueberry muffin. There was even plenty for my hungry husband!
The entire experience start to finish was the best.
