We came back for a second stay. Had tried to a previous time, but they were booked. We booked late again this time, but they were able to accommodate us. We had to switch rooms for our last night. First room was very spacious and comfortable. The second was smaller, smaller than we preferred. But they charged us the smaller... More

We recently stayed at the Castlemaine Inn while on a road trip around Maine. The owners were exceedingly helpful and understanding when we had a delayed arrival. The breakfast (especially the Blueberry Pancakes) was absolutely top quality. The B & B is probably around 10 minutes walk from the centre of Bar Harbor. The room was of a large clean... More

Very nice Inn. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The Inn was clean and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. The best part was you could walk to all the restaurants, shops and Taverns, we never had to use the car which was awesome. Will return.

I booked this Inn based on the reviews and when we arrived I was far less impressed then other visitors. It is a quaint old home and kinda smelled like that too. We viewed the room and then went out on the town and on returning to the room it just was not as romantic of cozy as I was... More

We were staying in Bar Harbor for just one night and booked this room the day before we traveled. It was early in the season and not all the hotels were open yet. While waiting for sunset on Cadillac Mountain we received a call checking in with us to let us know check-in 'closed' as 8pm, but here's a phone... More

Thank you TripAdvisor & all you reviewers! I found this cute little Inn and booked the Sunshine room based on other travelers' advice and had a great stay! Note that this isn't a huge hotel or a commercial Inn. It's an old fashioned, small, quaint B & B at walking distance from Bar Harbor's downtown area and does not have... More

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

Mr. emedic, Thanks for taking the time to review us on trip advisor and for considering a stay with us. I am very sorry you feel I was less than accommodating. I am certain you will find, as you shop around for a place to stay in Bar Harbor, that three night minimum stays are common especially over a holiday... 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
