Holbrook House was our very first B&B experience and the standard has been raised for future B&Bs. Wow! We give it two thumbs up! The hosts treated us like royalty but with a coziness of family. Our beautifully decorated room was fully furnished to the last detail which included a private bath and even a fireplace. Homemade "delights" were made... More

Lovely old house with charming gardens within walking distance to the Harbor and central district of Bar Harbor. Plenty of parking. Breakfast was a dining experience, gourmet to say the least! Delightful afternoon treats with beverages completed the food experience. If this wasn't a B&B it could become a cooking school! All the rooms are nicely appointed and our garden... More

Just arrived to the lovely Holbrook House. The hosts are so friendly and helpful, from the homemade delicious afternoon tea and breakfast, to the directions to Acadia National park trails. The Cadillac Suite accommodated our family of four. Two bedrooms. One smaller one, another larger one with a sitting room with a flat screen tv. We also had a private... More

Holbrook House is wonderful. The hosts gave us great, thoughtful advice tailored to the things we were interested in seeing in Acadia. The location was very convenient, just a 5 minute walk to anywhere in Bar Harbor. Breakfasts were delicious (and enormous!), and served in a beautiful sun-filled room or on the porch. They also provide a selection of home-made... More

My husband and I were drawn in by the large, beautiful front porch of this charming Inn. We were very happy to have a choice of two rooms and found the perfect one for us. We learned that Eric, was from East Stroudsburg, which is close to home. He was so down to earth, welcoming and knowledgeable about the area.... More

I stayed in the Green Heather room and it was lovely. Plenty of room. The only problem with this was my bathroom was across the hall and not in my room. They told me that up front and provided robes so it was no big deal. The owners are a lovely couple who know all about the town and really... More

We stayed at the Holbrook House in the Green Heather room for four nights in July 2015. I can't say enough good things about the inn -- the location, food, hospitality, and rooms were all top-notch. Michelle cooks breakfast every morning, alternating each day with a savory dish and a sweet dish, and each breakfast starts out with an interesting... More

Bar Harbor's Victorian B&B Holbrook House not only looks inviting from the outside with it's cozy porch but is also pleasantly decorated, roomy, and clean on the inside. The owners Eric and his wife run the place and are accommodating. The breakfasts were delicious, the afternoon treats were lovely. The rooms were clean and cozy. I would recommend it!
