We recently stayed here in Bar Harbor and would happily return anytime. Bob was a gracious host and the room we had was charming. Blackout blinds would be a helpful touch for the room we had as the very early morning sun is a direct hit on the window at 5:30 AM. The evening visit over wine and cheese was... More

We stayed 2 nights and loved the location. We could easily walk all over the charming little town. Lots of information on the local area available from the host. There was a 'happy hour' each evening around 5 pm with complimentary wine and a snack supplied for all the guests. We really enjoyed that extra little treat, along with talking... More

The host, Bob was an very accommodating man. He helped us find a great place to eat that night and also suggested what we might want to do regarding Acadia National Park. This Bed and Breakfast is a converted church but you wouldn't know it until you ask Bob to share the story. The room was nice and cozy. And... More

Stayed here awhile ago while in Bar Harbor for a conference. Four of us stayed and all four of us loved it. The rooms were perfect for our use, which was to sleep and shower. Bob was our host and he was delightful. We arrived in time for evening cocktail hour, which happened promptly at 5 pm for all guests.... More

I guess we got lucky, being able to do a last minute booking at this place. Usually, it appears that you need to plan several weeks in advance for summer weekends, The place is really nice, clean and well maintained. You are welcomed by the owner, very proud of his place. He's very attentionate to make sure that your stay... More

We stayed here for one night during a three day trip to Bar Harbor. We were greeted by the friendly owner, who told us about breakfast, asked about dietary concerns, and showed us to our beautiful room. After unpacking, we went out for a hike and a swim, and then returned for a glass of wine and afternoon snacks. We... More

This is great B & B. The host was full of helpful information. The inn was pleasant, the breakfast delicious. We enjoyed the wine and cheese in the afternoons. There was plenty of space for us to return with carry out lunches to eat on the porch, a place to play games in the evening. It is within walking distance... More

The setting of the inn, the friendliness of the innkeeper, the afternoon wine and snacks, very good breakfast and the proximity (short walk) to the dining and shopping in Bar Harbor are all strong pluses. The negative for us on a multi-night stay was the shoebox room we stayed in. The door to the small bathroom just barely made it... More
