We recently spent two nights at this B and B and had a great stay. We loved that you could easily walk downtown to restaurants and shops and it is very close to Acadia. The inn was very clean and quiet and the breakfast was delicious. Bob was very nice, lent us a CD to use on our first trip... More

Hosts are personable, breakfasts very good and rooms match the style of the house. Beds are nice rooms have a formal but comfy feel. If it fits your budget (it's competitive for type and location) I would certainly recommend this place. I'm pretty picky :) NB: photo is just the fireplace mantel in our room.

Tired-looking, 2nd-floor room w/ balcony. Warm 80+ day & no a/c (told a/c turned off for season; what comprises "season" should be specified on the website); opening window/balcony door in the cooler evening wasn't an option because of street/pedestrian traffic, so not a very comfortable indoor stay. Check in w/ Kathy was pleasant, as was the white wine/snack available at... More

One of the best bed and breakfasts we have ever stayed in. We felt the decor was in keeping with the feel of the building. Breakfast was superb each morning. Large portions and yummy. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast. It is close to the main downtown with out being in the busy part. Sitting on the front... More

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
