Anne and Robert Bahr
Anne and Bob Bahr have Inn-keeping in their blood. Bob is proud as he talks about the range of people who meet at their breakfast table, where life-long friendships are formed. He greets guests by saying, “Welcome home.” Anne likes to keep things fresh—she paints walls, upholsters furniture and sews curtains. Dedicated team members have been with them throughout this journey. Cheryl Streevy, who has worked side-by-side with Anne at Cleftstone Manor for seventeen years, will be your host at The Elmhurst Inn. Bob is also a concert pianist and if your lucky, you can hear him play evenings at the Reading Room Restaurant.
You cannot do it all, tempting though it may be. Mount Desert Island has so much to offer. Active lifestyle? Hike, climb, bike, and kayak. Love to learn? There are guided walking tours, museums, oceanariums, and an array of top notch lecture series. Want to relax, and relax more? A leisurely carriage ride through the park, cocktails by the harbor, and a round of spa treatments might be just the ticket. Love to eat? There is lobster, of course, and local cheeses, wine tastings, farmer’s markets, and blueberry everything. We know the area, and can help you choose the best combination of activities to give you a true taste of Mount Desert Island. We can probably give you a few ideas you won’t find in the guide books. Just ask, we are always glad to share our love of the area. We have trails maps, menus, field guides, activity information, and self-guided audio tours available.
