This Inn was built as a large summer "cottage" and has a modern addition. The original house is complete with huge fireplace in the great room, comfortable bedrooms, many with generous sized porches or balconies. But the real feature is the view, straight on across the Bay to Mt. Desert Island and Cadillac Mountain. There is a small, rocky beach... More

Roomy on all accounts. No TV which is perfect for a weekend getaway!!! Great views. Approximately 10 minutes to Winter Harbor and about 40 minutes from Bar Harbor. Two wineries are within 30 minutes of Inn.

Myself, husband and our wedding guests stayed at the Island View Inn during our wedding weekend. I wanted a cozy place to stay with just enough rooms for my guests. The Island View Inn was PERFECT. We were welcomed by the sweet family and staff that runs the Inn. They let us know if there was anything we needed to... More

We stayed 2 nights at Island View Inn on our way south from St. Andrews, Canada. The historic home is beautifully maintained with a magnificent hearth in the front room and spectacular views from the breakfast room. The bedrooms are spacious and well appointed. Our hosts were gracious and even gifted us a bottle of wine to make up for... More

We stayed 2 nights (attending friends wedding down the road from the inn). Pros: Beautiful location on the water and a very charming. The view of the harbor from the dining area is picture window perfect. Rooms were quite large, well decorated and very clean. Sarah and Vicky (sisters who run the joint) were very fantastic hosts. Pseudo-Con: Price is... More

Wonderful Hosts, Our room (the Hunt Room) was large, lovely and had a large porch overlooking the bay. The breakfast was delightful, which included Maple Syrup boiled down by the Inn... More

This classic waterfront "cottage" offers wonderful views, spacious rooms with balconies facing the water, and outstanding breakfast and service. Sarah suggested a fantastic seafood restaurant about 20 minutes away in the village of Winter Harbor. We'll be back!

First, the setting is gorgeous!!!!!!!!! The inn is on Frenchman Bay and across the bay is Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park. We stayed at this B and B for two days. It is about thirty minutes to Acadia from the inn. Sarah and Tony, the inn keepers were wonderful. They were friendly and shared activities to do in the area.... More

Five star all the way. Everything that is advertised and more. Clean and very nicely furnished with a view to die for. We wanted to take the mattress home with us, it was so comfortable. It made our vacation trip to Maine. We will go back and will stay at the Island View again. I thought that it was luxury... More

Beautifully run B & B in a wonderful old house overlooking Frenchman Bay that we found by happy accident whilst visiting Acadia. Our room opened onto a balcony with recliners overlooking the beach and lobster boats unloading at the jetty. Lovely hosts and delightful fellow guests. A memorable stay and thoroughly recommended.
