Anne and Bob are such fantastic hosts. They went above and beyond accommodating our group of 7 couples. What fantastic breakfasts Anne creates! We all got to spend time together at breakfast and during the evening happy hour. Anne had great recommendations for places to eat, sights to see and helped everyone find their way around Bar Harbor.

This is a historic mansion that got converted to a bed and breakfast. Tons of old furniture and antiques in the house. We arrived slightly late at around 8pm and only to find a note left for me in the front telling me their office was already closed, time of the breakfast for tomorrow, which rooms were mine and the...

Hospitality, service and experience were all top notch. We have travelled to Bar Harbor for 25 years and this was a first B&B stay for us. Location was very good for town visits as well as accessing Acadia loop and trails. Breakfasts were yummy and served in a comfortable setting. Innkeeper Anne and her staff were always accommodating to our... More

The room was lovely, we felt as if we were princesses in it! Homemade breakfast was great (one of the best eggs benedict I have ever eaten). The staff was very nice and helped us choose beautiful hikes in the area. Clefstone Manor was just perfect!

We reserved a Romance and Luxury package and were very pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. Our room was lovely, the common rooms were also spacious and comfortable, the breakfasts were divine, and a nice touch was the hot and cold hors d'oeuvres served in the evening. The 4-day package included a dinner at a local restaurant and a picnic... More

Rooms are perfectly lovely and Ann made the best breakfasts. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, especially Sharon. The Manor is close to the town of Bar Harbor which is a big plus and the trip around Acadia National Park was breathtaking.

If you are looking for the b & b experience this is IT! Rooms are unique, quaint, roomy, lovely. Nice breakfast, clean, clean clean place! A bit pricey but not out of line with other places we checked. Owner helps with cooking and also visits with guests. Highly recommend.

We had a lovely stay at Cleftstone. I was having some back issues, and Ann quickly found me a board to put under the mattress. The room we had chosen was large and beautifully decorated. But the real bonanza at Clefstone is the breakfast which have been described elsewhere as "sumptuous and scrumptious" and that certainly covers it. We had... More

I usually don't participate in hotel reviews on this site, BUT, I think I need to share my unfortunate experience here. First, when I wrote Anne Bahr, the innkeeper of the Clefstone Manor in Bar Harbor, I told her Id be using gift bedandbreakfast.com gift cards given to my wife and I for our anniversary. She said that would be... More

Do not make reservations at Cleftstone Manor in Bar Harbor if there is any possibility at all that you may have to cancel. Their cancellation policy is outrageous. I made a reservation a week before our planned stay but had to cancel the next day when our travel plans went up in smoke. But the more than $450 deposit they... More
