In a 1904 Queen Anne–style home on Southwest Harbor’s bustling Main Street, the Kingsleigh has long been a reliable place to bunk down in the area. Its living room features a wood-burning fireplace and fine art, while sitting and breakfast rooms offer further refuge. All units are outfitted with thoughtful touches like sound machines (to drown out the ambient “noise”), fresh flowers, wine glasses, heated bathroom floors, and thick robes. Flowery prints and wallpapers bedeck the rooms, most of which are small to moderate size, though a few have private decks. The huge third-floor penthouse suite—by far the most expensive room here—has a fireplace, a king-size bed, the inn’s only TV (with VCR and DVD players), and outstanding views (plus a telescope to see them better with). Three-course breakfasts are genuinely artistic—expect choices like asparagus frittata, local-spinach eggs Florentine, raspberry-stuffed French toast—always preceded by a shot of an esoteric juice (watermelon? celery, anyone?) and followed by dessert, believe it or not.
