A great B & B overall. When you think of a B & B in your head, this is it. Comfy rooms. Great atmosphere. Helpful and kind hosts. An excellent breakfast. I am gluten free and they accommodated us very well, which was so kind and hospitable. Only downside is the road in front of the house is a little... More

If you are looking for the perfect B&B in Bar Harbor. Look no further!! Just book at the Holbrook House. You will be glad you did!! After staying at two wonderful B&Bs in other parts of Maine, my wife and I were thinking it couldn't get much better...until we stayed Holbrook House in Bar Harbor. Such attention to detail! So...

My husband and I recently spend three nights here while in Bar Harbor, and really enjoyed our stay. Innkeepers Eric and Michelle are super sweet, and Michelle's phenomenal breakfasts are reason enough to stay here! LOCATION: Located just on the edge of the touristy "village" of Bar Harbor, this B&B is located within walking distance to everything in town. It's... More

We stayed here for two nights and loved it. The B&B is spotless and the host accommodating. Eric and his wife obviously put a lot of effort in and it shows. Everything that you could need is supplied (toiletries, hairdrier), there are cakes in the afternoon, delicious breakfast, ample parking and a five/ten min walk to town. It's got it... More

Bar Harbor is filled with B and B's, and I cannot imagine a better one than this. The house is beautiful, Eric and Michele are knowledgable, friendly, and helpful, each room is individual and tasteful, the location is ideal...a short walk to the center of Bar Harbor and a short ride to Acadia. Michele is a superb cook and baker.... More

My wife, 2 teenage boys, and friends of ours (family of 4) stayed at Holbrook House in mid-July 2013. It was a very pleasant and relaxing "home away from home" feel. The innkeepers are great, the breakfasts are fantastic. I have no recommendations to make this experience better. Keep up the great work!!!

Holbrook House has all the characteristics of a great B&B. The innkeepers are gracious, staff is helpful, location is great, rooms and common areas are beautiful. What makes the Holbrook House a standout are the truly gourmet breakfasts served each day. Innkeeper MIchelle's flavor combinations and food presentations are exquisite. One could not have a better start to a day... More

This was our 1st trip to Bar Harbour & Acadia National Park. We really enjoyed our stay at the Holbrook House. It was a perfect location, Eric and Michelle were great hosts and so helpful. Their breakfast were awesome, and great afternoon snacks!! I would recommend it to anyone going to Bar Harbour.

Highly recommend Holbrook House as a B&B in Bar Harbor. We were upgraded since it was a hot weekend and all the a/c units weren't installed -- so we stayed in the Garden Room instead of the Rose Room (where the bath was separate). All of the rooms look lovelier in person as I think the pictures are outdated on... More
