My wife and I try to take a short trip every year on our own - just the two of us, no kids, etc. We love to visit B & B's during these trips, and have stayed at B & B's in Oregon, Cape Cod, Gulf Shores, etc. We decided to go somewhere we had never been this year and... More

This is a top-class B&B. We were made to feel very welcome and everything was just right. The room was beautiful, the breakfast plentiful and the location perfect. It's not cheap but then the quality is very evident.

his is the only B&B we stay at when in Bar Harbor. Great B&B with beautiful front porch to relax on after dinner or drink you first cup of java in the morning. Michelle and Eric are wonderful hosts and if you checkout before breakfast is served on your last day , they will pack you a breakfast to go!

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at Holbrook House in mid September. Our room, the Lafayette, is in a newly renovated section of the building, around the back of house, and not in the older part of house. I thought it was perfect location and with a separate entrance this offered much privacy. There is also a small, private... More

When you go to the website for the Holbrook House click the "About" tab. Everything you read there is absolutely true. Michele and Eric are truly superb hosts and go out of their way to make you feel like you are visiting friends rather than staying at a B & B. We have been coming here every year since they... More

Can't say enough about how much we liked this B & B. This is one of the best we have ever stayed at. They offer late afternoon homemade snacks and the room we had was very comfortable, and nicely appointed. The breakfast is actually two breakfasts- an early continental breakfast, followed by a served sit down breakfast. This gives you... More

We spent 3 days at the Holbrook House with another couple. Eric and Michelle were gracious hosts. The breakfast food was excellent; fresh and unique recipes that made you want more. The afternoon fresh cookies and snacks were also looked forward to each day. Would highly recommend a stay.

We stayed a full week at the Holbrook House this past August and were SO glad we did! Eric and Michelle were just so accommodating! My husband and kids had not been to Bar Harbor before and I hadn't been in decades, so we were routinely asking for advice on dinner and attractions. Eric seemed good at calibrating our interests...

We had a great stay at the Holbrook House. We stayed 6 nights in the Compase Rose room, with a large attached bathroom. This room is located on the 2nd floor in the back. It was a beautiful room, newly renovated, with a king size very comfortable bed. Because the room is in the back it was very quiet. We... More

Our first time to this area. Our Hosts were very gracious during our stay and the breakfasts were outstanding. We could walk to town and the harbor. The rooms were very comfortable. We will be back. Thanks to our hosts for the Hospitality shown for our 1st time visit to Bar Harbor.
