As first time visitors to Maine, the charming Lindenwood Inn nestled in the quaint Southwest Harbor community is certainly one of the best B&Bs experences we've had in our many travels. We arrived late on a rainly evening and felt as if we were coming home as we entered the door on the front porch. The decor nicely maintains the lovely character of the inn with tasteful updates. A cozy fire blazes in the living room hearth with a scented candle lit on nearby table - the perfect spot to a sip a glass of wine and reminisce after a long day of travel or enjoying the outdoor actvities of Acadia National Park. Our pleasant second floor room was clean and bright wth an extra-comfy bed, clawfoot tub, and small balcony from which the high and low tides in the harbor could be observed. Breakfast each day was a gourmet treat, includng a served hot entree complemented by a self-serve bar with fresh mixed fruit, scrumptous baked goods, and beverages. Fred was most accommodating of dietary restrictions (which we hadn't mentioned prior to our visit). What a nice surprise it was on our second day to come to breakfast and find that he had already modifed the main entree and set aside a specal bowl of fruit - the blueberry crepe (wthout an egg) was scrumptious and most appreciated. The owners and other staff members are genuine and friendly - the nicest folks you'll ever meet! Tthe location of the inn makes access to the park easy, as well as travel on and off the island. Southwest Harbor is a delightful town with good local restaurants, a fine bakery, and shops, but not the congestion of the more "touristy" areas - a true treasure. Many thanks to all - we can't wait to return!
