Our room, was perfect! So very clean, and completely free of any noise from outside! Our breakfast was truly delicious!!! We hope we'll be able to return, because there is still so much to see & do in Acadia & around Bar Harbor!

This was a nice B&B and the breakfasts were outstanding. The parlor area was so accommodating and we met several other very engaging guests. Our room was quite comfortable, however, we had a 2 bedroom suite with friends and the other bedroom was wide open with no door. We literally walked into their bedroom to use the bath room. Definitely... More

This is a wonderful place and a great choice for visiting Bar Harbor! The most exceptional part of our experience here was the breakfast. Every morning we were served a beautiful gourmet meal, starting with fresh fruit, followed by a hot course. Wonderful homemade bread was available early, perfect for toast. Each day was something different, delicious, fresh and creative.... More

We loved Holbrook House. Eric and Michelle are wonderful and very helpful. The location is close enough to walk to some of the hikes in Acadia, but also close enough to walk to dinner - perfect! The house itself is lovely. We stayed in the little cabin out back, which was great. And, let's not forget breakfast. Breakfasts were amazingly... More

It's hard to complain about anything with the Holbrook House. The gormet breakfast is great and different everyday. Both Eric and Michelle are gracious hosts and have worked hard to provide an attention to detail on every thing. We stayed in the Blueberry room( which has been remodeled and is green now) from July10-14. You don't need a car when... More

I was here as part of a group, hiking in Acadia NP. What a great find this was. Eric and Michelle are excellent hosts. Eric traded parking places so my motorcycle could get the shadiest, safest spot in their lot, and they allowed me to store my bike and hear while away for two days. Michelle's breakfasts are to die... More

We have just got back from our visit to Holbrook House and are missing it already. The decor was beautiful, rooms spotlessly clean and the breakfast was amazing. The B&B is very conveniently situated a short walk from the centre of Bar Harbour. In addition to all of this, our hosts Eric and Michelle could not have been kinder. I... More

My wife and I spent two nights at Holbrook House this past weekend. After a number of previous visits to Bar Harbor, we found ourselves looking for a new place to try when booking this trip. We were drawn to the photos of Victorian décor, and were familiar with the location, a pleasant walk from the green. When booking the... More

My wife and I stayed here 2 nights, and could not ask for much more. The innkeepers were great, and there if you had questions about anything. The house was a few blocks from the main area so that was great. It was also in an easy spot to access the rest of the island. I would reccomend this to... More
