    The best breakfasts in Maine! Lovely setting, great rooms full of character. Very good location for all you want to do in Mount Desert Island, and southwest harbour has some great restaurants and bars, more peaceful and authentic, and less touristy than Bar Harbour.

    The Captain's Nook is on the second floor, and I believe the Dory is likewise. There are a few first floor rooms or suites. As others have said, contact the owner - Don is consistently gracious and accommodating.
