We don't expect anyone to plunge the toilet...I'm not sure the circumstances, but maybe the cleaning staff was unavailable or the front desk personnel could not leave the office. I'm certainly sorry for the inconvenience. I'm also sorry the room in the main building was not up to your standard, but I don't think you will find a quality room with a view like that, for such an affordable price anywhere else on Mount Desert Island. we are in the process of making significant upgraded , and would love for you to give us another try. Thank you for your concern.
