Welcome to Elsa's Inn on the Harbor

Greetings from VERY snowy Prospect Harbor. We are excited to be gearing up for another wonderful season at Elsa's. Although we are open all year, we take advantage of the quiet time to ensure that our high standards are maintained. Our painter is repainting bathrooms and floors, curtains and dust ruffles are being laundered. We continue to try new recipes so the food is just getting better (and my clothes are getting tighter). The only thing that has changed is that our hydrangeas are enormous and we have new furniture on our backyard patio. I hope that you are thinking about visiting Prospect Harbor and Elsa's again this year. For several years our rates have not changed. Contact me soon to make your reservation.

Elsa's, a bed and breakfast situated in the heart of Prospect Harbor, near the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park is convenient to the fishing villages of Winter Harbor and Corea. Come spend a real downeast Maine vacation at our luxury inn, where you will enjoy the quiet lifestyle of this unspoiled section of Maine's beautiful rocky coast.

Built in a working fishing harbor on the Gouldsboro peninsula, our newly renovated inn has the charm of the mid-1800's with the comfort of the new millennium. Each of Elsa's six guest rooms offer private baths and harbor views which include historic Prospect Harbor light. Guests can enjoy cable television and Wifi if they like. A hearty breakfast serving Maine's Carabassett Coffee is served each morning in our sunny dining room on our backyard patio or covered front porch.

We are conveniently located to art galleries, a winery, bell foundry, unique gift shops, restaurants, antique and pottery shops and lighthouses. Elsa's is a perfect place to stay if your plans include kayaking, birding, hiking, biking and beach combing. We are also a short jaunt Blue Hill, Deer Isle, Bar Harbor, Belfast, Camden Jonesport and Eastport. We look forward to welcoming you as our guest.
