We have been staying at Castlemaine Inn for many years during our annual visit to Bar Harbor. Aside from the fact that is is extremely convenient (within walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor which means no hunting for parking places when going shopping, dinning , or just exploring) the Inn is the perfect place for us. It is very low... More

Great location, spacious rooms and good food. Very helpful staff. Their breakfast was good, and served until 10 am. Plenty of movies to choose from on a boring night and lots of brochures to help your stay in the area. THe Victorian wall paper was a bit much, but if that's all I can complain about, its worth your stay.

This is within easy walking distance (5 mins) of the town and in a quiet area. Very friendly staff, helpful with all our needs and questions, we would very likely return here. Our room had a fireplace and a jacuzzi - very romantic...

The advertising for this bed and breakfast in Bar Harbor was very misleading. It said city view, but the house was surrounded by trees which obstructed any view. The former ambassador's summer home was very run down, with shabby furnishings and a mini-TV in a cupboard. The hot breakfast was minimal. The owner, Dan, gave helpful advice on things to... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Nice people, wonderful breakfast that was simple and just the right amount. At breakfast we had a choice of two hot cooked to order meals that were FANATISTIC!!! Rooms were very clean. A better TV in the room would be a great improvement. Some updating is needed, but with that said, the Inn is just... More

for a long weekend getaway, this was a wonderful place. Dan (the owner) and Bobbie (his assistant) were very friendly and accommodating. We had a King Superior room and it was more than enough. Very large room and huge bathroom with bathtub/shower and also a jacuzzi tub, and double sinks. It was on the 1st floor which was perfect -... More

This place has the most crazy big print wallpaper I've seen for a long time. It also has retro in-room facilities including CRT TVs and combo VCR/DVD players. The lace netting over the 4 poster bed is also rather special, along with rather dated bathrooms. All that said though, this place was clean, and had friendly, helpful staff. They also... More

We stayed at Castlemaine Inn as an unknown and we were very happy. We stayed three nights and had very helpful advice from the staff that to do in the area. The rooms were spotless as was the rest of the Inn and we could not fault the staff. Location is very central - and close to a super market... More
