The Inn at Bay Ledge has been welcoming visitors and guests to Mount Desert Island and the Acadia region for over 60 years. Originally the home of a local minister, beginning in the 1960s, the Sunset Pines Motel opened its doors to guests and we haven’t looked back. Along the way, we’ve added the back deck (a favorite among guests), balconies for upstairs rooms, the Summer Cottage, the Cottage across the street, and changed our name as an homage to our location overlooking Frenchman’s Bay. While the building has evolved in its 100+ year existence, the charm and grace with which it was built remains.

Meet Your Hosts
Sarah and Dax Wandling (along with their bernedoodle, Stanley), purchased the Inn at Bay Ledge in October 2022, fulfilling a lifelong dream of running a bed and breakfast. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Sarah and Dax started talking about this dream even before they were married. What they thought would be decades in the future was expedited when they saw that the Inn at Bay Ledge was for sale. After only a virtual tour with their realtor, they made an offer sight unseen in the spring of 2022 and moved from their home in Boise, Idaho later that year. They fell in love with it immediately and know that their guests will, too.
In their former careers, Sarah was a registered nurse working in hospital administration and Dax was in human resources. They now get to take their skills in care and hospitality to make every guest’s stay one that is relaxing and memorable. They can’t wait to meet you, and Stanley is particularly excited to make new friends!
