The Asticou Inn has beautiful grounds and the common areas of the main inn building seemed nice. However, we were given Room 4 in the Cranberry Lodge -- a house across the street that has been converted into a small satellite inn. The rooms we were given were shabby. There really is no other way to describe them. I'll upload... More

Here's what I loved about the Asticou Inn: - Private balcony overlooking Northeast Harbor - Sitting fireside in lobby with coffee and dessert - Adirondack chairs in the backyard - Easy access to Northeast Harbor and central location between Southwest and Bar Harbor - Incredibly friendly and helpful staff What I did not like: - No elevator (there is one...

We just spent two nights at Asticou Inn. We had a great time. We'd come from a night in bar harbor which was touristy and crowded. Asticou was the perfect antidote. We stayed at the bird bank with an excellent view of the harbor. The room wasn't large but it was sunny, bright and clean and the bathroom was quite... More

The Asticou Inn is a beautiful property with several buildings and fantastic gardens. We stayed in the main inn and had a king suite. First, the beds are very comfortable with enough good pillows and very nice linens. There were plenty of high quality towels. For me, the pillows, bed, sheets and towels are the most important things about a... More

I’ve been coming to Mt. Desert for 30 years. Had always wanted to stay at the Asticou and finally got to in August 2014. I was a bit concerned reading the negative reviews here, but can only say our experience was excellent: James at the front desk was very helpful. Things we didn’t have included dirt, flies, formica, linoleum, peeling... More

The main building seems nice, and the view is spectacular. But because we're a family of four, we stayed in one of the cottages. Impossible to distinguish from a roadside motel from the 70s, which would be fine except for the high end price.

In an effort to avoid the crowds and traffic of Bar Harbor we elected to stay on the quieter "other side" namely Northeast Harbor and specifically the Asticou Inn. Our mission was to enjoy Acadia National Park and the quiet elegance of an old inn. Upon arrival you could almost sense a worse for wear and forgotten property. The inn... More

The main inn looks lovely bit we stayed in the blue spruce building. The deck was rotting and peeling, the screens were falling out, the bathroom too small for family of four, window locks broken, and we were provided a pull out couch as sleeping accommodations for one of our group of four. For the price, I was surprised at... More

Asticou Inn Northeast Harbor As we wanted to stay out of what we heard to be a real tourist buzz of Bar Harbor, we opted for the quieter Northeast Harbor. Asticou Inn is beautifully located with an attractive view on the waterfront harbor. The room with a harbor view we had on the first floor was nicely decorated, the beds... More

We visited this historic inn over 10 years ago. That was nothing like our most recent visit. Although the setting is still beautiful, the inn itself has deteriorated and the quality of service has declined. We stayed in one of the 3 Topsider cottages, which was quiet but cramped. If you like to camp out and don't mind paying $400... More
