We stayed here in June. The house is right off the main street so easy to walk to the shops and eat. Gary and Heidi the owners, made homemade vegetarian breakfast every morning for the guests. We are not vegetarian but there was nothing left on either of our plates....so yummy. They were extremely helpful with where to eat dinner... More

This place is a charming Tudor cottage and exactly what we were looking forward to when traveling to New England on our honeymoon!! Upon driving to the cottage it is s gem off a side road off the main strip of Bar harbor. Parking was easy to get to and located close to the stores and the harbor. Gary greeted... More

This B&B in an amazing architect-designed house was one of the high spots of our recent tour of New England! Much more than a "cottage", it is charmingly furnished and lovingly kept by a great couple of hosts, Heidi and Gary. Ideally situated in a quiet street just a few minutes walk away from the centre of Bar Harbor and... More

this was a most charming house located just blocks from the bustling town of Bar Harbor, Maine. Our visit couldn't have been better. Our room was nicely decorated, very clean and the bed was especially comfortable. Our hosts, Heidi and Gary, were so accommodating. Whatever question we asked, they were able to answer. Breakfasts were spectacular......tasty and nicely served. There... More

With so many B&B options in Bar Harbor it can be difficult to select just one. I'm so pleased with our decision to stay at the Atlantean! Our room - the Baymeath - was wonderful! Spacious, well-decorated, working fireplace, and an amazing updated bathroom. All the charm one expects with modern upgrades and a fantastic breakfast! If we ever make... More

This review could be the shortest ever with just one word, "perfection!" The Atlantean Cottage is just lovely - absolutely spotless inside, cozy and welcoming and the location is ideal - on a side street, yet a quick walk to the center of town. However, it is the Atlantean Hosts, Gary and Heidi, that truly make this B&B so very... More

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Atlantean and really enjoyed ourselves. The hosts, Heidi and Gary, are friendly, well informed and environmentally committed. They gave us great tips about hiking, trails and restaurants - all were perfect recommendations. The room was very comfortable and quiet. Although there are other guest rooms on the second floor, we rarely... More

This is the closest situation to having your own Backroads multi sport tour with personal guides. Everyday Gary and Heidi give you the best possible information as to where to go- kayaking, hiking, biking, restaurants, etc. Their wealth of knowledge is worth more than anything else because there is no waste of time in terms of trying to figure out...

We spent a week at the Atlantean and not only is it a well maintained and beautiful home but Heidi and Gary made you feel welcomed and comfortable. We were actually really sad to leave.Gary cooks amazing breakfast, each morning and Heidi bakes delicious blueberry muffins and chocolate chip cookies! I can't say enough about them or their home.

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
