Gary and Heidi are the perfect hosts and helped us to truly enjoy our four days at the historic Atlantean. This was our first trip to Bar Harbor and they gave us all the guidance we needed. We stayed in Birchmont (#7), a recently renovated suite. The bed was extremely comfortable (the sheets were so soft, we ordered a set... More

Here's what I loved about the Atlantean Cottage: beautifully restored house with lots of attention to details -- our spacious room, the Tallyrand, was quiet, comfortable and had a steam room for the shower. Fantastic after a long hike; the hosts -- Gary and Heidi, who were helpful and friendly but not overbearing as some B&B well-intentioned hosts can sometimes... More

We stayed at the Atlantean Cottage for two nights mid-August. Gary and Heidi are exceptional hosts - full of great ideas about Bar Harbor - providing excellent directions and excellent restaurant recommendations as well. We stayed in the Chatwald room - extremely comfortable bed and an amazing shower. Our only regret was that we could only stay two nights...

We stayed in the Talleyrand room. It was charming but modern. The steam shower was fantastic after our hikes at Acadia. The owners are charming and gracious hosts, the breakfasts delicious. Will definitely stay here again during our next trip to Maine.

We just stayed 4 nights in the Chotwold (sp?) room. It was exceptionally clean. The bed was very comfortable and it was cool enough to leave the window slightly open. The air felt clean and relaxing. Breakfast was nothing short of amazing. The quiche and pastry with the butternut squash filling were my favorites. Gary and Heidi were professional, friendly... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. It is gratifying to learn that our guests have enjoyed their stay in Bar Harbor, and we hope to have helped in some way to bring that about. We were a bit troubled to read of a water pressure issue, as we had not previously been aware of such concerns. When learning... More

The Atlantean is a turn of the century cottage that has been beautifully restored and furnished. While the Atlantean has all of the modern conveniences, including an amazing Jacuzzi tub in the Wingwood Room), they never overshadow the history of the home. Heidi and Gary are amazing host and hostess. We were warmly greeted and shown around the home. There... More

Gary and Heidi really make you feel at home in this beautifully restored circa 1900's Cottage. The location is great and the rooms and main floor are wonderfully maintained. Breakfast is something to look forward to each day, and ask Gary to make his pineapple upside down French toast. It's fabulous.
