We had a spacious comfortable room in a good location in walking distance of everything. It was also the perfect spot for our frequent trips into Acadia. You don't want to miss the breakfast. Michelle outdid herself in novelty, taste, and presentation. We enjoyed the tea time when we returned from Acadia each day and just sitting on the porch... More

I hope everyone staying at the Holbrook House has the same experience we had. Holbrook House is a well maintained old home that is decorated and furnished to provide comfort, and a clean, homey quality that lends to mingling with other guests or sitting quietly if preferred. The veranda is so nice to sit on in the evenings when we... More

Our hiking group stayed 2 nights at the Holbrook House. Eric was a great host and helped make the stay nice. The room we stayed in was spacious and well maintained. We had a short walk to town and could sit out on the veranda and relax after a days hike. It is on the main street and the am... More

We stayed in the Arcadia room which has its own private entrance, a little seating are outside the door and 2 rooms. A large living space as well as a bedroom and... More

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
