Perfect for any occasion A review of Kingsleigh Inn 1904
We stayed at the Kingsleigh Inn for our honeymoon in June 2005. I have to say, I have stayed at many B&Bs and I have never had such a wonderful experience. Dana and Greg were perfect hosts. The breakfasts were beyond delicious and they had wonderful recommendations for activities and dinners. They even went out of their way to make reservations for us for dinner one night. Additionally, my husband's birthday fell on one of the days we stayed there and Dana added a candle to his breakfast and had us all sing happy birthday.
The little touches of the Inn are the best part: they have little kits with makeup remover, nail files etc, slippers and robes, chocolate and other candies in the room and fresh coffee every morning.
We stayed in the Hawthorne room. We walked through most of the other rooms (including the Chelsea) and found our room to be the best. It had a cute, private deck that overlooked the bay.
We had the honeymoon package which included cheese tray (crackers, pate, cheese and olives) as well as champange and chocolate dipped strawberries. One suggestion, ask for your cheese tray one day and the strawberries another...it is a lot of food for your first evening there!
If you are going to Mount Desert Island, there is NO better place to stay than the Kingsleigh Inn.
