Spring! And organic food has arrived!

Spring! And organic food has arrived!

Along with the flowers and budding trees, spring brings Aysgarth Station organic food from Crown O’ Maine. Every item from them is certified organic, and you can really tell the difference in quality.

From tomatoes to cheese to the fresh ramps we just got delivered this week, everything we get is delightful and fresh.CoM_poster_web (Small)

Clean the World

Aysgarth Station participates in the ‘Clean the World’ Foundation program to recycle soaps and shampoos. Clean the World

Rather than throw out the soaps and shampoo we provide all our guests, we recycle the unused portions and package them up to be shipped out to the foundation. Clean the World will give those discarded soap bars and plastic bottles a second life.

Aysgarth was one of the first lodging properties in the state to partner with Clean the World, and are a proud continued supporter of their cause.

Coffee….

Coffee….

Good coffee at a B&B is expected, right? Well, we have been taste testing some new coffee at Aysgarth.
To prevent throwing away a lot of coffee, we switched to a single brew system a few years ago for our 24 hour beverage station. However the trash component has always bothered us! We are happy and proud to say that we are switching to Intelligent Blends Single Serve Coffee.
Great Coffee and Recyclable cups.

One more thing to make Happy Innkeepers!

Our Acadia Centennial Anniversary mugs are here. Our logo and the Park’s 100th Anniversary logo are on each side and make for a very unique mug. It’s from the same company that make our breakfast mugs, so they hold alot of coffee or tea, and keep it hot for longer.

For each mug sold, we will donate a portion of the proceeds to Friends of Acadia.

We live on an island

We live on an island

Our natural resources here on Mount Desert Island are plenty. It’s a beautiful place to both live and visit, and we were visitors for years before we moved here for good in 2004.

And while our natural beauty is easy to see, we also try to take care of our environment as well.

Did you know that Aysgarth was one of the first lodging establishments in the state of Maine to participate in the global soap recycle project by the Clean the World organization? We recycle our soaps and shampoos and Clean the Word recycles them.

We also offer a water cooler and complimentary water bottles for your use during your stay here at the inn.

C’mon, you know you want a water bottle, so make your reservation now…..!
