Welcome to Elsa’s Inn on the Harbor

It looks like it will be a good season here on the coast of Maine!  At Elsa’s, we are lucky to have so many guests who return regularly and we missed so many of you last year when travel was restricted.  Maine is opening up a little, we are still abiding by all the safety protocols but, there is a little more optimism in the air this spring!  Last year, while we missed the return of many of our friends, we enjoyed meeting many first-time visitors to the area.  Most found us because they were looking for a safe and healthy alternative to more populous areas in Maine as well as elsewhere.  We hope you will all come back as soon as you feel it is safe to travel.    

And, many of you are ready to travel!  Recent success with the vaccination campaigns are making our phones ring again!  So many of the calls are familiar voices and we are looking forward to seeing the familiar faces that go with them this summer and fall.  We hope we will hear from you soon!  (207) 963-7571.

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.
