Called looking to book a room, numerous rooms available, the one I was interested is open for the whole week. Called in person because despite no posted policy on their website, there is a "magical" three night minimum stay. (makes more money with an empty room versus paying customers, makes sense doesn't it) Anyway, Dan was less than accommodating insisting... More

Inn sits in a tree lined street a few blocks from a Marina., shopping and eateries. This inn is best suited for adults, as there is nothing here or nearby to entertain children, the walls are thin and structure is all wood. Each room has a outside area to sit. The Inn keeper makes a wonderful breakfast very unique. On... More

I should preface this review by saying that my husband and I are not really B & B folks. Over our years together we have tried many and in some cases they are the only thing available but when the rubber meets the road give us the cool impersonalization of an upscale chain hotel any time. That is just us... More

This beautiful Bed and Breakfast was just a few blocks (walking distance) off the main drag in Bar Harbor, the area very nice and quiet. They have a good variety of rooms with different price ranges depending on what you want. The breakfast every morning was fabulous and was a full breakfast, not continental style. The manager, Dan, was very... More

Owner and manager very helpful and kind. We thought the bed was very uncomfortable and they switched our matress. Rooms need updating and new pillows. The breakfast selection was limited. Would be great to add yogurt or other healthier choices.

The location was great and the staff was very nice. I was a little underwhelmed with the decor, the room we stayed in was in need of an update. Old couch, tv is from the 70's, very small shower, just didn't measure up to other B&B's and we have stayed in many.

Stayed 2 nights beginning of October. Lovely inn, friendly staff. Dan, the owner, expert in Acadia National Park, willingly provided good practical advice. Great location next to the Park and in close proximity to town shops and restaurants. Fresh good breakfast served pleasantly. Good shower with reasonable water pressure. Soap & shampoo generously provided. Large room with lovely little porch.... More

We recently stayed at the Castlemaine Inn in Bar Harbour, Maine. Although the Inn was lovely, the staff very friendly and helpful and the breakfast each day was quite nice, the room we stayed in was not. We stayed in the Secret Room. I would not advise booking this room. The shower in the bathroom was very small. I'm not... More
