Since 1982, Penury Hall (the first B & B on Mt. Desert Island ) an historic property built in 1830 in Southwest Harbor, has welcomed many through its distinctive red front door. We enjoy sharing our love of fine arts, antiques, gardening, books and sailing with our six guests. Private baths of course and breakfast ranges from Eggs Benedict, Cinnamon Waffles, Penurious Omelet to Blueberry Pancakes and beyond, a different one served every day. Located on the Quiet Side of Mt. Desert Island, we are less than a half-mile from many of the attractions of Acadia National Park. Hiking, biking, whale watching or just lolling on a rock by the ocean are a few of the many pleasures that await you. A grand selection of dining places, whether it be gourmet or lobster-on-the-pier, await your discovery and most are within walking distance of Penury Hall. We look forward to adding you to our extended family.
