I can not recommend Atlantean cottage enough. Gary and Heidi were amazing. From helping find the perfect hikes and restaurants to Gary's amazing breakfast. The bed was super comfortable and Heidi went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. Also the outdoor area is super cute and great to sit and read. They were super responsive to email and...

This B&B was a highlight of our trip. Heidi and Gary keep a wonderful place and were happy to help and guide us through the area to ensure we had a wonderful stay. The room was super comfy and the steam shower was just the thing after a day of hiking in Acadia. The room and Inn were very clean... More

I've been meaning to write this review for 9 months. My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and I have to say it was an amazing experience. We felt like such welcome guests by Gary and Heidi. Not only did they cook us a gourmet breakfast every morning but they made sure to give us very helpful suggestions... More

We stayed with Gary and Heidi and have to say, this is one of the best run/most wonderful B&B we have ever stayed at. Everything was perfect, just as it should be, and it was a very comfortable stay. From the moment we arrived, until we left, it was smiles the whole time. The Cottage is located in a great... More

We stayed at the Atlantean Cottage for a couple of nights towards the end of October. The B&B is an imposing house in a quiet area within easy walking distance to the centre of Bar Harbor. The house has lots of character and is decorated in keeping with its age and style, but with modern touches. We had the Rosserne... More

Gary R, Owner at Atlantean Cottage, responded to this review

Thank you, Wanderers, for your very thoughtful words. We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Bar Harbor and (especially) your stay at Atlantean. You are quite correct about the difficulty in managing the temperature way up on the top floor of this grand old house... It is a challenge in both summer's heat and autumn's cool.... More

What a great experience our stay at the Atlantean was! This cottage is very well located in the center of town, has ample parking, great rooms and spacious living areas. The hosts Heidi and Gary are very kind and helpful and they know all there is to know about the region and the status of the hiking trails (we changed... More

Atlantean Cottage is obviously a well-loved property and rightfully so. I loved the "feel" of the place from the moment I walked through the opening archway in the garden hedge and followed the stone path leading from the rear parking area to the front door of this appealing home. Far removed from the town pier and cruise ship mania, the... More

We recently stayed 4 nights at the Atlantean. The location is perfect, the food is excellent, I love how both Gary and Heidi interact with their guests each morning and ask what our plans were or helping us plan our day. The bed and breakfast is extremely comfortable and homey. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area and... More

Best Central yet quiet Bar Harbor location. Lovely rooms and house and the most friendly welcoming couple... They could not have done more to make our stay wonderful. Breakfasts are delicious but a bit heavy. More choice in lighter fare might have been nice but overall a 5 star experience.

We stayed at the Atlantean Cottage in October 2013, and had a great time. When we arrived with a bunch of luggage, late in the afternoon, Gary, the owner, helped us lug it all up to our room - very nice and certainly we didn't expect him to help us on our five trips up with all our stuff, including...
