Kingsleigh Inn selected as one of 16 finalists for best B&B breakfast in North America

Breakfast Lovers and B&B Fans to Select Favorite Regional Recipes
in’s Best B&B Breakfast Tournament

AUSTIN, TX, March 23, 2015 – Starting today, breakfast lovers and B&B fans are invited to help select the best B&B breakfast in North America during the® Best B&B Breakfast Tournament™. Kingsleigh Inn is Southwest Harbor is one of 16 bed and breakfasts to make the cut for the two-week recipe battle for the best B&B breakfast that represent some regional favorites.
Kingsleigh Inn was selected to represent the New England region for its Blueberry Soufflés recipe. With over 44,000 acres of Wild Blueberries growing in Maine, there’s plenty of opportunity to share these special berries with guests in our homemade sweet breads, baked oatmeal, buttermilk pancakes, fruit salads and these individual Blueberry Soufflés. We love this recipe for its simplicity, scalability and, of course, abundance of sweet blueberries which pair so well with the “surprise” little pillows of warm cream cheese. And, unlike traditional soufflés, these will look as beautiful on the plate as they did in the oven!

For the fourth year in a row,’s Best B&B Breakfast Tournament contest works in brackets, much like the NCAA Basketball®’s March Madness®, with’s Facebook® fans voting on their favorites. The recipes in each bracket winning the most votes move on to the next round of eight, four, and the final two, which will battle it out in a showdown on April 6. The winner will be announced April 7. 

The Sweet 16 were chosen based on recipe creativity, uniqueness and appeal by guest judges including Lynn Andriani,; Kate Appleton, freelance travel writer; Anne Banas,; Genevieve Shaw Brown, ABC News; and Larry Olmsted, USAToday.comGreat American Bites columnist. 

“Breakfast is the favorite meal of the day for many people – particularly B&B travelers,” says Matt Laessig, general manager “This year, we’ll see which region comes out on top for the best B&B breakfast in North America.” 

Last year,’s Facebook fans awarded the best B&B breakfast to Open Gates Bed & Breakfast in Darien, Ga., for its Sweet Stuffed Crepe Cigars. In 2013, the winning recipe was the Lemon Soufflé Pancakes with Blueberry Compote from the 1851 Historic Maple Hill Manor Bed and Breakfast in Springfield, Kentucky. In 2012 (the inaugural year), the Bittersweet Chocolate Waffles Topped with Mint Butter Cream and Strawberry Sauce from the Lyttleton Inn in Littleton, Mass. won first place.
