This quaint, mature property is managed by Eric and Michelle who make their guests feel at home from the moment of arrival. The accommodations are clean, homey and comfortable. The breakfasts are tasty, well presented and sumptuous to the point that lunch is a question mark. The wonderful baked goods put out for tea are like your mom used to... More

After researching the various B&B's in Bar Harbor, we chose the Holbrook House and were very glad that we did. We would recommend this house to anyone who is looking for great hosts, delicious breakfasts, tasty afternoon treats, clean and interesting house/rooms, and a convenient location to the downtown area and sightseeing venues. Michelle and Eric were wonderful hosts -... More

My husband and I had a lovely week at the Holbrook House this fall. Our room was comfy and spotless. The beautiful breakfasts that greeted us every morning were amazing. In fact, once we got home, we looked at each other and said, oh no, our vacation is over, breakfast will never be the same. My husband was not to... More

We stayed in the Garden Room for two nights. The only real issue was the noise from the street (coming in from the air conditioner window unit). The breakfast each morning was awesome. Enjoyed getting to know some of the other guest at breakfast time. In the late afternoon they have coffee, tea, and cookies. Which I enjoyed a little... More

We just got back from a beautiful fall trip to Bar Harbor and had the pleasure of staying at this B&B. When we made the reservation we were able to indicate any food allergies and since my husband has several food allergies (gluten, lactose, and shellfish) I was thankful for this as at other B&B's he has had very limited...

Recently spent 2 nights at HH. Very nice stay. Excellent food, great location away from the busy waterfront, but close walking distance to everything. Only drawback was the private bath was located across the hall for our room. Other rooms do have in-suite baths. I would recommend this B&B to everyone who visits.

It was our first stay at a B&B and we were not certain what to expect. Holbrook House definitely exceeded our expectations. We felt at home with comfortable and clean rooms (freshened daily), amazing breakfasts and "snacks," calming atmosphere, and wonderful hospitality. We met some wonderful people but also felt like our stay was private enough. A beautiful establishment and... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Holbrook House. Eric was very friendly and knowledgeable upon greeting us. He made many restaurant and hiking recommendations. Loved the afternoon homemade cookies and treats -- just what we needed after some long hikes. The rooms were very nice, though ours was a little on the small side, and the lighting was very poor for... More
