Your Innkeepers at Elsa's Inn
Innkeepers Jeffrey and Cynthia Alley, their dog, Barney, along with Glenn and Megan Moshier and their three young sons Andrew, Emmett and Isaac welcome you.
Megan worked for several years in the hospitality business, managing four and five star hotels. She began her career at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, DC, and later moved to Honolulu where she managed operations for a full service, luxury, boutique hotel. Megan later rejoined Ritz Carlton, then St. Regis Hotels in Philadelphia, followed by Swiss Hotel in Boston before returning to her hometown to raise her two young sons.
Jeff and Cynthia, both raised locally realize a love for entertaining. When Cynthia isn't traveling herself, she often hosts friends and family in her home nearby. Cynthia's passions for cooking and gardening are an asset to this quaint coastal inn.
Jeff, a sixth generation lobster fisherman moors his 38' boat, the "Cynthia Jean" across the street from Elsa's, his childhood home. From rocking chairs on the veranda at Elsa's, guests can watch the fisherman come and go each day. Very often, at the end of his day, Jeff will return to his truck toting lobsters for his family or guests of the inn.
Glenn, also raised in the area, works as a Police Officer in Ellsworth. Also a volunteer firefighter in nearby Winter Harbor, Glenn boasts the safety of Elsa's. With a sprinkler system and life safety system recently installed, Elsa's is proud to fully meet State of Maine fire and safety code requirements. A home that has been in their family for more than fifty years, named for Jeff's mother, Elsa's is sure to exceed your expectations.
