My husband and I stayed at The Atlantean for 2 nights in late August 2014, and we absolutely loved it! It was our first time staying at a B&B and first, the place is beautiful and second, Gary & Heidi are the just nicest people you will ever meet - and Finn "The Tiny" is the cutest 2.5 lbs of... More

The Atlantean is a beautiful, well-kept, historical inn right off the main street in Bar Harbor. It's close to shopping and restaurants (walkable) and about a 10 minute car ride to Acadia Natl Park. The innkeepers, Gary and Heidi, could not be lovelier people and gave some great suggestions on hikes in the park, good restaurants in town, things to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend. We very much enjoyed our stay in the Wingwood room. Service was dynamite from before we even started to book. I was worried about the room being loud/creaky since it was on the first floor so I called before booking. Gary let me know that there hadn't been any complaints... More

Traveling clear across the U.S., you just never know what to expect. We were visiting Bar Harbor after being with our son who is a Plebe at the United States Naval Academy. Driving up to the cottage inn, I was pleased to see a big historic house, with lots of trees around, on a nice quiet street.   The Atlantean Cottage... More

We loved our 4-night stay at the Atlantean. Heidi and Gary have thought of everything - from the fresh pot of coffee early in the morning to snacks around-the-clock, to wonderful linens in the bedroom. We were delighted by the suite we had on the 3rd floor - new bathroom, lovely sitting room with TV, and very comfortable bedroom. The... More

Great B&B. Heidi and Gary were excellent host! The B&B was walking distance to everything that Bar Harbor had to offer and just a short trip to Acadia. The breakfasts were unique and very tasty. They were able to give recommendations on dinner and accommodate our early breakfast request! Thank you for sharing the Atlantean Cottage with us on our... More

Set on a side street just off the main street, this B&B is great for local sightseeing, dining and access for nearby Acadia NP. This is an historic building which retains its original design charm while reflecting a number of modernizations. The hosts are very pleasant and helpful. Beyond the standard basket of menus and local tourist publications, they provide... More

This bed and breakfast offers the best of both worlds. It is tucked away on a quiet side street yet within easy walking distance of everything you would want to do. Our hosts Heidi and Gary were very welcoming and professional. Each morning we were presented with a unique breakfast appetizer and main course. They were so helpful with dinner... More

We stayed in the Rosserne room which was very nice, comfortable and quiet on the third floor . The stairs are not overly narrow, it's just not a modern house. We did not find them difficult and actually liked the third floor as there are two rooms and ours was near the back of e house. The property is excellently... More
