Our vacation this year was a car trip up the coast of Maine. Our target was Bar Harbor and we spent two days in a whirlwind of touristry (is that a word?), including a boat cruise and bus tour of Acadia national park. We had a ball but found our accomadations at the White Columns just the right way to... More

We discovered bed and breakfasts as an alternative to hotel travel almost by accident. Typically, we find the atmosphere friendly and welcoming, the properties cleaner, the clientele quieter, and the stay generally more relaxed. Anne's White Column Inn was very convenient to downtown Bar Harbor, an easy walk to the mad circus of people and everything that Bar Harbor has... More

3 night stay, completing our Coastal Maine vacation! Everything about this B&B was fantastic! It's a former church, so that added to the SPIRITUAL feel to the entire trip! Bob and his entire staff presented the upmost of a true east coast home for my wife and me to enjoy! The decor is beautiful, the comfort of the entire home... More

The location was the best part and the Inn's porch lovely, but not enough room for all guests to sit there and enjoy. Breakfasts were prepared ahead of time by Anne, and though she didn't make it to this location in the week we were there, others who worked there were most accommodating. Bob arrived every morning to make people... More

Disappointing!! Would not stay here again. As for the rooms...ridiculously small to the point of my having black/blue marks on my shins from the bedposts every time I had to walk around to my side of bed. Virtually no hangers in closet and drawer space. Walls/floors paper thin, both adjacent & especially below us. Bad creaking floors. The 2 nights... More

This inn is in an imposing structure, formerly a church, in a great location in Bar Harbor, close to restaurants and the central part of this charming village. Acadian National Park is a short drive away. The breakfast and service were excellent. The owners have, regrettably, let the place get a bit rundown, which is unfortunate. It could be a... More

We recently stayed here in June for several days during our trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park - and we loved it!! It is an excellent Bed and Breakfast and we highly recommend staying here. The rooms and grounds are immaculate, charming, and comfortable. Bob and Anne are gracious hosts and Anne's breakfasts are absolutely delicious! The B&B... More

Great location in Bar Harbor, ME - you can walk to the downtown and waterfront area. It is unfortunate that they have let this nice old mansion go to seed. It is in need of massive renovation - the carpets, drapes and furnishings are all worn out and it is a bit depressing. The breakfast was nothing to write home... More

We spent two nights here the end of May. Bob is a gracious host serving a delicious breakfast. Our room was very small, but we had chosen the least expensive and a small room was to be expected. I'm sure the other rooms are larger. The home is very well appointed and we would certainly recommend Anne's White Columns Inn.

Friendly staff, delicious breakfast, quaint and homey rooms. About a 15-min. drive to Acadia National Park. Romantic b&b in Bar Harbor, good walking area nearby. I suggest booking in advance because there are only ten rooms in the inn. Great find!
