This was exactly what we were looking for. We had been traveling up the Eastern Seaboard for a week and been staying in 3+ star hotels. Our plan was to spend a few days near Bar Harbor in a B&B, so we chose this Inn in Southwest Harbor (the other side of Mt. Desert island)...btw, the "we" is my wife, two teenagers, and I.
We booked the Captain Mayo suite. It was HUGE! We had our own private bathroom and the kids slept around the corner of the same room. The Innkeeper even made two separate beds for the kids (normally they would have had to share).
Patti (the innkeeper) and her husband were so gracious. We called ahead that we were going to arrive late, and they were very accommodating The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and filling. The food was fresh and obviously used local produce (berries...incredible). I just wish I had not been watching my weight, because I would have eaten more!
The main reason why we chose a B&B was to really get immersed in the local flavors of the area. The Cranberry Hill Inn delivered on that front, also. Breakfast conversation was interesting and enjoyable, and we got some good tips on what to do in the area.
If we ever make it back to Maine and the Bar Harbor area, our choice of lodging will be the Cranberry Hill Inn!
