Graycote Inn

In April 2006 the Graycote Inn became the first business on Mt. Desert Island to receive the Environmental Leader Certification from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.

The Graycote is ideally located: on a large lot on a quiet side street, within easy walking distance of Bar Harborís restaurants, shops, galleries and ocean-oriented activities. Bicycle to Carriage Roads from the Inn. Free off-street parking for all guests. All rooms have private baths and queen or king size beds, many with canopies.

Rates at the Inn include a full hot served breakfast, and afternoon refreshments. Guests in the main inn are also provided with an early morning coffee tray at each floor of the inn an hour before breakfast begins.
