Welcome to Elsa’s Inn on the Harbor

We are all hoping the area will open up this season as fully and safely as it ended last season.  We look forward to seeing people who visited as guests last year return as friends this year.  Many people found us for the first time last year because they were looking for a safe and healthy alternative to more populous areas in Maine as well as elsewhere.  Come back again next time because you discovered a place you love.  We are still abiding by all the safety protocols but, there is a little more optimism in the air this year!  We plan to be opening in late May, with our season typically being from Memorial Day through October.  We expect to begin taking reservation calls in late March or early April but feel free to call anytime.  We are always happy to hear from you and share any information about the inn or the area that we can!  Hope we will hear from you soon!  (207) 963-7571.    In the mean time, enjoy a short overview of the area by clicking on the “About the Area” link on the left side of this page!  

Elsa’s, an award-winning luxury bed and breakfast, is in the heart of the scenic Schoodic Peninsula. Located in Prospect Harbor, a working fishing harbor on the Gouldsboro peninsula, this newly renovated inn combines the charm of the mid-1800’s home with the comfort of the new millennium. Each of Elsa’s six well-appointed guest rooms offers a large private bath and harbor view, including historic Prospect Harbor Light. Guests can enjoy cable television, Wifi or watch the workings of the harbor from the privacy of their room or enjoy the views from the shaded front porch. Our professional chef serves a gourmet breakfast each morning in our sunny dining room, on our backyard patio or covered front porch.
