Thanks to those who answered my air conditioning questions from a few days ago :-)
We've narrowed our choices to two locations for the four nights in late June we'll spend on the coast: either Deer Isle or Southwest Harbor. We don't mind taking day trips to one or the other, but we'd like to spend all four nights in the same place to avoid unpacking over & over.
Has anyone had first-hand experience with either The Pilgrim's Inn (Deer Isle) or Kingsleigh B&B (Southwest Harbor)? The Pilgrim's Inn offers slightly cheaper rates and more spacious accommodations, while Kingsleigh B&B offers closer proximity to the "big" part of Acadia National Park and harbor views from the room. Just wondering if anyone would recommend one spot over the other as a "home base." Or, am I missing another area which might be even better than these?
We are a mother-daughter pair looking for a relaxed vacation. We'll have a rental car and enjoy visiting small towns, taking leisurely bicycle rides, hiking, having lunch outside, and parking ourselves on beach chairs to read and enjoy a good breeze. Given the choice we'd prefer the open ocean over inner harbors. Any tips?
