The location was excellent and the type of casual accommodations were as would be anticipated for a B&B on Maine island. However, cold cereal on a shelf and milk in the refrigerator, no fruit for the cereal sent us out for breakfast. (The Island Inn has a great breakfast.) We also found the host less than charming and pretty much unavailable unless you "rang".
The shining sails B&B on Monhegan was one of the nicest places we've stayed in a long time. The rooms all have breathtaking views of the ocean and are very cozy. The beds are comfortable and everything is so clean. The gas fireplaces are a charming addition. The gardens are beautiful and the two exotic cats have quite a lot of personality. They serve breakfast continental style and have a variety of homemade muffins, bagels, hot and cold cereal and fresh fruit. The coffee was delicious! The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly very homey. The host were lovely and accomodating. Winnie is always in the common for breakfast to chat with everyone. What a beautiful person! And John was great as well! He knows tons about the Island and its history. We definately recommend Shining Sails and will be back next year!!!
Shining Sails doesn't fail to provide clean rooms that are cozy and rustic and some have breathtaking views-ours was one of those. Shining Sails calls itself a B & B, but provides cold rolls and even asks the guests to fix their own breakfast. The hosts are detached and rude at times. They have a wonderful cat that helps some, and the island is wonderful!!!
