Aysgarth Station B&B was built in 1895 as a private home on a quiet, one-way, side street in the village of Bar Harbor, before Acadia National Park was established. Today, the inn offers six comfortable and cozy guest rooms with private baths, some with fireplaces, private balconies, spa tubs and one with a view of Cadillac Mountain. The large parlor on the main floor has comfortable, casual seating, a fireplace, popular games, and complimentary beverages are available in the dining room for guests 24/7. The shops and restaurants of Bar Harbor and its harborside park are all walkable from Aysgarth Station. In fact, the free Island Explorer shuttle stops just a few blocks away and will take guests into the park and around the entire Mount Desert Island. A full breakfast daily features fresh fare from local farms; homemade afternoon snacks will carry guests through until dinner. Winter activities abound and nearby Acadia National Park is open year-round for snowshoeing, cross country skiing, walking/hiking and scenic views. Hiking, biking and scenic drives draw visitors to stay at Aysgarth Station B&B and enjoy the park in spring, summer and fall. And while Aysgarth Station B&B is smoke and pet-free, Asticou, the resident inn cat, may be seen snuggling with guests in common areas from time to time. A specialty in hospitality and food has been the founding principle that characterizes Aysgarth Station B&B under its present ownership. The mission of the innkeepers, Jane and Steve, is to provide an experience that is tailored to individual interests, and that commitment to personalized hospitality is a hallmark here. The name Aysgarth Station B&B is a tribute to the small town of Aysgarth, located in Yorkshire Dales National Park in Northern England, where Jane grew up and spent many memorable summers.
