My husband and I, in our quest to visit as many national parks as we can, we nudged when our daughter and new son-in-law gave us an open 3 day getaway to the Kingsleigh Inn. My daughter researched it and determined we would love the Turret Suite at the Kingsleigh Inn. She was so right! We invited our cousins to...

We stayed at the Kingsleigh Inn for four days. Everything was extremely well done and organized from welcome, sweets/tea/coffee during the day, information for all kind of wishes to a delicious breakfast with a different “guess the juice” every morning. The room was spacious, well equipped with a nice deck overlooking the harbor. There was quite a bit of traffic...

Bryan and Pamela do an amazing job with this B and B! The breakfasts were fabulous including the daily, mystery juice! The Turrets Room was extra special and we enjoyed our private deck overlooking the harbor. The port and chocolates were an inviting treat. Hope to come back again some day!

Wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable innkeepers took very good care of us. Room (the Abbott) was very clean & comfortable. Breakfasts were very good and even included dessert. Daily contest to identify a mystery juice at breakfast was fun.

We recently treated ourselves to a two night stay here at the Kingsleigh in Southwest Harbor, Maine. We were warmly greeted by the Inn Keepers Bryan and Pamela who showed us the inn and its amenities which are too many to mention, including our accommodations which were spacious and nicely appointed down to the port, fresh flowers, and chocolates. One...

We've stayed at the Kingsleigh a couple of times, once in one of the smaller second floor rooms and last weekend in the big Turret Suite at the top of the house. Both rooms were comfortable and well appointed, but the Turret is really special. It's huge, king bed, living room, sunroom leading to a small deck overlooking the bay,...

We felt welcomed right from the start. Innkeepers were attentive, but not in your face. For example, they arranged to get us breakfast first thing the morning we had scheduled a carriage ride early, and asked how we liked it when we got back, but didn't pester us for details. They had very good hiking trail maps, and a book...

We stayed at the Turret room for two nights. Hosts were great! Breakfasts were amazingly good - all fresh ingredients and delicious. Pam and Bryan were very helpful. Rate pretty high but probably worth it. We would definitely stay there again. The Turret suite had a beautiful view of the harbor and nice bathroom, sitting room, game room. It is...
