Welcome to Elsa’s Inn on the Harbor

If you are looking at Elsa’s Inn for the first time, or if you are one of our many returning guests, thank you for remembering us!  So many of you visited us as guests for the first time and then returned as friends over the years.   And so, missing seeing you all from year to year was perhaps our biggest heart-ache in making the decision to sell. 

Elsa’s is now operating under new owners.  It was fun for us to see the same excitement we felt years ago coming back in their eyes.  We hope you will support them as so many supported us.   Please reach out to them directly

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.

It is two miles from the entrance to the unspoiled Schoodic section of Acadia National Park as well as convenient to the fishing villages of Winter Harbor and Corea. Elsa’s is a perfect place to stay if your plans include kayaking, hiking, birding, biking, beach combing, antiquing, and visiting art galleries and unique gift shops in the area.
