My husband and I had our first vacation on MDI and we are so glad we picked the Kingsleigh Inn. The Inn is clean, maintained and attractive. The food is better than we have ever had at a bed and breakfast and certainly raises the bar for others. Presentation is amazing and it tastes as good as it looks. The hosts are friendly and hardworking. From the Inn it is only a few steps into town and a short walk to harbor views and a lobster pound. While it is on the main street, everything goes quiet at night and you can sleep with open windows if you like.
Our ONLY negative was the bed was a little too soft. We really sank into it. My husband took a pain killer before going to bed so as not to get a backache.
