We stayed at Castlemaine Inn for 4-nights and booked through another website. We arrived around 11 PM and called to let them know we'd be in late. They left a key and instructions on where to park and how to get to our room on the front door. The lady on the phone was very friendly. Parking is a little... More

The Innkeeper and Assistant Innkeeper were so personable and friendly. From the beginning they helped us ensure we had lunch set up for our trip the next day through a local deli. They also helped me by printing out a ton of papers I ended up having to sign and ship back home for work. The breakfasts were all good,... More

We welcomed the sight of the Castlemain in our windshield. We knew we were in for a treat. Dan the owner and Bobbi, his assistant made our visit astounding from day one. The Castlemaine is within walking distance of many Bar Harbor features. Our favorites were Gaylans seafood restaurant, the Thirsty Whale an eatery locals love. Don't miss out on... More

We spent one night at this B&B. Everyone was extremely friendly. The room was lovely, well appointed and very comfortable. The location is perfect. It is located on a quiet side street but within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants Breakfast was delicious!! We would go back!

We stayed in the Secret Room for 3 nights. The inn is full of twists and turns, as most houses built in that era are, and makes for very interesting exploration. It's decor is lovely and the owner(s) are very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was immaculate and had a little balcony out back that was perfect for early... More

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
