Lobster Time!

Wir wollen nach dem Frühstück (Pancakes) den Tag mit einer kleinen Wanderung beginnen. Soll natürlich nicht ganz so anstrengend werden wie gestern, daher entscheiden wir uns für den Trail um Jordan Pond. Hört sich idyllisch an und ist es auch.

Den Parkplatz zum Trailhead kann man nicht verpassen. Liegt direkt an der Park Loop Road und ist …

Happy Birthday! Geburtstag in der Senkrechten

Happy Birthday to me! Geburtstag im Urlaub ist doch immer nett. Wobei es natürlich schwierig ist, da etwas Besonderes zu unternehmen, denn das tun wir jetzt eh schon seit einer Woche. Probieren wir also, diesen Tag extra-super zu gestalten.

Los geht's mit dem Frühstück. Im Wintergarten des Graycote Inn sind leider alle Plätze belegt, so …

Route 1: Traumstraße an der Küste von Maine

Eine Woche sind wir jetzt schon unterwegs. Kinder, wie die Zeit vergeht. Heute steht ein langer Fahrtag an, so schauen wir, dass wir zeitig in Portland loskommen. Dass ich gestern Abend noch die ganze Flasche New Yorker Riesling leeren musste, macht das nicht gerade einfacher, aber man ist ja Profi.

Frühstück wollen wir unterwegs …

... over tea time, walked the near by beach and enjoyed guests for dinner. Since the Bolgers are friends of friends, and we had never met before, I was honored to be welcomed so warmly to their home and lives. I would be seeing the Bolgers a few days later at an event they had invited me to but more on that later. Even though I embarrassingly got lost on an early moring walk by myself and was delayed getting back for ...

... the summit of Cadillac Mountain. We both hoped it would clear up!

I made a brief stop at the hotel and picked up a small pizza and made my way to the overlook. Sunset was scheduled for 6:41 and I arrived at 6. There weren’t many cars in the parking lot and most of those cars still had their occupants inside. I found out why when I stepped out of the car and into the biting wind. According to my ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Graycote Inn Bar Harbor

    Nifty nifty place

    from

    We have stayed at the Greycote several times in the past few months while visiting Bar Harbor on business. Roger and Pat are the perfect hosts, the accommodations are excellent, and the food is divine. We couldn't be happier with the service and the friendly style of the place. Go for it.

    Winter Weekend in Maine

    from

    The Graycote Inn is a place to return to time after time. The bed in the St. Sauveur room was the most comfortable one we'd ever slept on away from home! Beautiful furnishings and knowledgeable and attentive hosts make the inn warm and inviting. We especially appreciated the amenities--shelves in the bathroom for toiletries, chocolates on the mantle, logs by the fireplace, and a plush down comforter. And, of course, that early pot of coffee outside our door. Delicious breakfasts provided the perfect start to our days.

    Peace, Quiet, and Comfort in Bar Harbor

    from

    My wife and I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at the Graycote. We consider it our home away from home when we're in Acadia. It is a classic B&B that is quiet and comfortable. The keepers (Pat and Roger) are very interesting people, good conversationalists, knowledgeable of Mt. Desert Island, and good cooks to boot. If you want peace and quiet, as well as a clean and comfortable stay - the Graycote is definitely the place.

    Individual stay at an extraordinary B&B

    from

    Our 10-day-2005 autumn trip through the New England States offered us a variety of indiviudal B&Bs. The Graycote Inn stands out of the crowd by its close to the heart of Bar Harbor location, its individual and tasteful decoration of the different rooms, the hospitality of the innkeepers, their ability and willingness to interesting and sophisticated discussions and to welcome international visitors. You do not make a mistake to stop by.

    Our Favorite Inn!

    from

    The Graycote Inn is our idea of heaven! Located on a quiet side street within walking distance to the town center and the water, the inn has everything my spouse and I need to relax, unwind and reconnect with each other. From the moment we arrived one late August afternoon and were warmly greeted by the innkeepers, until our departure 4 days later, we felt pampered and cared for. We are not high maintenance guests but we are quite fussy about our accommodations and expect warm hospitality, quality linens, impeccable housekeeping, tasteful decor and helpful hosts. The Graycote Inn delivers all of this PLUS a fabulous, home cooked breakfast! Both Pat and Roger, the innkeepers, went out of their way to tell us about things to do and see on Mt. Desert Island and they even made reservations for us to visit the much sought after Rockefeller Gardens. They were always professional, as you would expect innkeepers to be, respecting our privacy yet somehow anticipating our needs. But they also found time in their very busy schedules to share a quiet conversation with us on the porch with a glass of wine before dinner. We found their attention to detail and genuine desire to please a refreshing change from other bed and breakfasts that we experienced in Bar Harbor.

    Attention to Detail

    from

    We wanted a quiet refined B&B and we found it in Graycote Inn. The owners,Roger and Pat attended to every detail. If we needed something,they were there. They also antipicated when you wanted privacy. We had the Starr room on the third floor which has a skylight over the bed to view the sky. It was absolutely beautiful. The morning was spent in the sunroom having an exceptional breakfast. The grounds are lovely and peaceful. You are away from the main street traffic yet only minutes to some great dining downtown. We give it 5 Star(r)s.

    A nice getaway

    from

    Before we stayed here, but after our resevation was made, we read a few of the other reviews listed here. To say the least, we were apprehensive of the owner (Roger). Since we had a heads up, we were able to avoid some of the conrontations others had with him. We found that the inn was very beautiful and that the owners, although not the most engaging and social individuals, to be very attentive and helpful. The location of the inn is nice, on a quiet side street close to downtown. Our room was fabulous and the breakfasts were out of this world. Roger was able to reccomend several good places to eat and hike. He knows the island very well. They even have menus from every restaraunt in town. Overall, a pleasant experience.

    Graycote needs a white coat

    from

    The male innkeeper at this bed and breakfast seemed to be attempting to ruin my vacation. He is a very introverted, bookwormish creature and was very stern and scolding to myself and to the others in my party. I won't go into unnecessary detail except to say that I am a frequent traveler and I was dismayed at the level of "service" that he offered. I felt scolded, frowned at, treated like a child, and "told what to do." I don't think I have ever experienced that before at any place I have ever stayed in my entire life. We all minimized our intereactions with the innkeepers and actually left earlier than we intended. I'm sure other innkeepers are friendlier and more accommodating. This guy seemed ready for the men in white coats - he was very, very strange and almost hostile. This was not a "bargain" inn, so spend your money somewhere else.

    Lesson in Etiquette

    from

    Initially, my fiance and I found the inn to be pleasant, the decor tasteful and the service adequate. I would have given it an above average rating. However, the male innkeeper left a lot to be desired in terms of treating guests like guests.

    Charming place, great hosts

    from

    My fiancée and I got engaged here. We highly recommend it! The hosts were extremely attentive and helpful, giving us excellent advice about where to go - and avoid - in Bar Harbor. The rooms were quite comfortable - we stayed in the least expensive room which was beautiful. Breakfast was *amazing* - the hosts are wonderful cooks. Afternoon tea was a very nice touch as well. Easily walkable to the downtown Bar Harbor area. Great place!
