My wife and I recently stayed at the Cleftstone to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. What made it extra special for us was we honeymooned at the Cleftstone 30 years ago. We had such a good time back in 1984, we have been trying ever since to get back to the Cleftstone and Mount Desert Island (MDI). But, as is all... More

We decided to travel to Bar Harbor for our first wedding anniversary, and Cleftstone Manor was the perfect base for our trip. We stayed for 4 nights in a third floor room, which was not too large of a room, but it was definitely a more private and quiet part of the house. The house is beautiful and steeped in... More

We recently stayed at Cleftstone Manor and were very disappointed. The room we had booked did have a private bathroom but nowehere on the website did it mention it was across the hall and not in the room. The location is right on the main road so there is a lot of traffic noise. It is a beautifully kept property... More

This was our first trip to Maine and it was a wonderful week! Cleftstone Manor was our home for the week and innkeeper Anne was wonderful! She served yummy and filling breakfasts in an atmosphere of friendship with other guests. Two entrée choices or the standard cereal, oatmeal, fruit parfait option was always available. We were then set to tour... More

My husband and I can't say enough about the Clefstone Manor. The breakfasts are gourmet and delicious. There is also snacks served in the late afternoon and coffee and tea is available throughout the day. The manor has lots of history and is beautifully decorated. The rooms are very comfortable and immaculate. It is located just a short walk into... More

My 2 sisters and I chose Cleftstone for a recent 4 day stay; we chose the Waldron Bates room since it was a mini-suite, with 2 separate sleeping areas for the 3 of us. What a perfect choice it was for our Acadia Park trip. The inn's website photos are accurate--what you see is what you get. The inn is... More

This B&B was one of the nicest we've ever stayed in. The Cleftstone Manor is a short walk to downtown Bar Harbor. It is a lovely old mansion that is meticulously maintained. Each room is named after an influential person from Bar Harbor. We stayed in the Charles How Suite. We loved the summary that was included in the room... More

The Cleftstone Manor is a 17 room B&B a short distance from the center of Bar Harbor, conveniently located on Eden St. (Rte. 3). This late 1800's former summer residence of a wealthy Boston family, is a wonderful place to call home while visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The breakfasts are fabulous, different choices every day served by... More
