“Wonderful accommodating hosts”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

We found this place by luck. Don Lodge has retired to Southwest Harbor (on the quiet side of Mt Desert Island) and thought he would be bored. So he and Marge opened a B&B. Don loves to cook and experimented with all sorts of new recipes when we told him we ate vegan (grilled portabella on English muffin with hummus - YUM!). He also is so outgoing and well-read and fun to talk with. He provided us with hiking maps, great advice about what to do and where to go. He even contacted one of the island bird specialists when my husband came back with a picture he couldn't identify. The B&B is on an alternative road to the main road just outside the small town of Southwest Harbor. The rooms are ample size, the beds comfortable, and the breakfasts were all good. There's a lounge with packed bookshelves. Marge was also interesting to talk with, although she will admit up front that this is Don's B&B. We would go back and stay with them in a heartbeat.

We stayed here one night. The Host Don and his wife Marge are very helpful with information about the area and suggestions as to where to have dinner. Our room was very comfortable.
Breakfast was a treat. We had crab cakes Benedict for breakfast. In the evening Don putsout a menu of all the offerings for breakfast and ech person chooses what they would like for breakfast. I found this B&B on the B&B web site. Their prices are very reasonable for this area. This is the first year that they have had the B&B. We would stay here again.
