Graycote Inn is a beautifully restored 19th-century Victorian cottage in Bar Harbor, Maine offering an unforgettable New England vacation retreat.

Lace-canopied beds, private baths, cozy fireplaces, pleasant sunporches, and balconies grace the property, sending a quiet message from another time. The Victorian house named Graycote (a cote meaning small cottage) was built in 1881 as a private residence for the Reverend Christopher Starr Leffingwell, who came to Bar Harbor in 1879. After the house exchanged hands several times, Roger and Pat Samuel purchased the Graycote Inn in 1996. They added gardens, antique Victorian furniture, and various additional services in order provide their guests modern amenities with ageless ambiance.

Graycote Inn offers 12 rooms with countless personal touches. All lodgings are spacious with king- or queen-size beds, and each has a private bath, while some offer a choice of fireplace, sitting room, or balcony. There are five suites in the accommodation choices. Enjoy free wireless Internet access.

After a day in Acadia National Park or in the village shops, return to the Graycote to enjoy some light afternoon refreshments. In the summer, relax on the verandah or in a hammock in the yard. In the winter, enjoy refreshments in front of the fireplace in either the dining room or the parlor. The comfortable furnishings and informal atmosphere are conducive to conversation and are part of the bed and breakfast inn's charm and gracious hospitality.

The morning at Graycote begins an hour before breakfast with a tray of tea and locally roasted coffee set out at each floor of the Inn. In warm weather, breakfast is served to guests at tables for two or four on the sunny breakfast porch and includes a choice of juices, cereals, fresh fruit, fresh-baked muffins, cakes or breads, and a hot main dish. In the winter, breakfast is served in the dining room in front of a cozy wood fire.

During your stay, Roger and Pat hope you will experience all the grandeur and pristine beauty of Acadia National Park, taking in the exhilarating view from the summit of Cadillac Mountain; walking, biking, or skiing on the sixty miles of carriage paths; or hiking some of the 120 miles of foot trails.

The ocean, Bar Harbor shops, and many fine restaurants are a pleasant four-block stroll from the inn. You can enjoy sailing, golf, fishing, nature tours, and whale watching.

Savor the essence of Maine in spring, summer, autumn, or winter; your visit at Graycote Inn will be a special and memorable experience.
