We just got here and I was shocked. My wife made reservations and I was in the dark. (So was she). In fact, this wonderful place was not even listed! Why? Who knows? It's great. It is a suite in the in the same building as Colonel's Bakery, which is a store, downstairs. Let me tell you. The blueberry doughnut?... More

We stayed at the Colonel's Suites for three nights during a recent trip to Maine, and we were more than happy. The area, Northeast Harbor, is very small and laid back. If you're looking for lots of things to do, this isn't the place for it. BUT, Bar Harbor is only a short drive away (maybe 15 minutes). It is... More

We chose this location mainly for the reasonable cost. It's not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor but we like being able to dial it back after a day of hiking, shopping or whatever. The rooms are very well appointed and tastefully decorated. It is very clean and that is maintained during your stay. During... More

When you first arrive the address is for the bakery/hotel, we arrived after hours and new (having read some reviews already) to drive around the block to the back of the hotel. Once there I made a phone call and was told what I needed to do... Go upstairs to room 3 and my key will be there with a... More

This is a small bed & breakfast with a restaurant on the first floor and rooms on the second floor. We stayed there in October, 2012. Our suite was clean, spacious and very comfortable. It looks new too. While it has the charm of a B&B, it does not have the muskiness of grandma's old quilt. It was the perfect... More

We loved the small town of Northeast Harbor and were happy to stay in this family owned bakery-restaurant and rooms above the bakery on the Main Street of Northeast Harbor. You feel you are part of the community and can walk easily up and down Main Street and to the Harbor. I loved the convenience of being in town. We... More

We were extremely dissatisfied with this "hotel". We had trouble locating it because its not a hotel. It's five rooms above bakery. After the confusing check in from the bakery staff. We were given directions to park around the block behind the bakery. Once we found the so called parking lot that had an overflowing dumpster with trash bags scattered,... More

When we realized we were going to be late arriving, we contacted the hotel, and they were very gracious in accommodating our time. Fortunately we arrived just before the restaurant closed so we did get help. Unfortunately it was a bit confusing. The young lady directed us to the front entrance and then proceeded to tell us to park behind... More

We were in room 1, it was clean, spacious, and modern. The bakery/restaurant that it is over closes at 9pm, so there wasn't any issues with noise when we were trying to sleep. The couch in the living room had a pull out bed, so it would be great for a couple with two small kids. Also had a wet... More

We stated a few nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The room is more like an apartment than a hotel room. The furniture and bedding are comfortable the place has 2 large screen tv s. The kitchenette is a nice feature, the breakfast is included. Our review pretty much agrees with the majority of other reviews of this neat... More
