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

The hosts were wonderful and the building was clean and well decorated on a quiet side street. The breakfast was a delicious apple Clafoutis. Complimentary reusable plastic squirt water bottles were provided which were a nice touch. Umbrellas were available to borrow, which we ended up needing that day. They had lots of maps and menus for reference in a... More

We decided to stay here after reading all the positive reviews that we read. My husband and I come to Bar Harbor every year and like to try new places to stay and this is definitely one of the best. Gay and Heidi are extremely attentive and helpful and the breakfasts are simply delicious. Our room was nicely decorated and... More

The Atlantean is just wonderful. Hosts Heidi and Gary have made a historic home into a beautiful, warm, welcoming and restful oasis that's great to "come home" to after a busy day in Bar Harbor or Acadia National Park. As other reviewers have mentioned, the Atlantean is on a quiet, largely residential street (a dead-end, so no traffic noise). It... More

Loved this place, interior and exterior , beautiful. Gary and Heidi are welcoming owners of the place. Vegetarian breakfasts were unbelievably tasty, and the hotel practices of doing business as" green" as possible were spectacular. Definitely must stay places at Bar Harbor
