Don't get me wrong, the Cleftston is beautiful, but didn't have that B&B feel. The dinning room had multiple tables that weren't "friendly". We sat and ate by ourselves. Isn't the whole idea of a B&B is to talk to the owners and other visitors to discuss and give/get suggestions?? Our room was beautiful...I "treated" myself to a large room... More

This was the best B&B we have ever frequented. The accomodations were spacious, extremely clean, and the staff was awesome. We stayed for 7 days and experienced 7 different multi-course gourmet breakfasts. We were given the option to select our breakfast entree each day, and they were all terrific. Guests have an hour and a half window for breakfast, so... More

Everyone writes such glorious reviews of Bar Harbor's Cleftstone Manor, but we found it to be disappointing. If we had paid as much as Cleftstone charged to stay in, for example, a Hyatt Regency, we would have demanded another room or an extremely generous discount. Why do people get so caught up in the pretense of gentry travel that they... More

From the time we arrived till the morning we left, there was not a thing we needed that was not provided for. B'fast were delicious (and a choice), tapes loaned to us for Acadia Park, wine glasses when we wanted to relax with a drink in the afternoon, homemade cookies, tea for me when everyone else was out and about...

Cleftstone Manor is on the National Registry of Historic Places, and it doesn't take very long to realize why. It's a beautiful Queen Anne mansion that harkens back to the days of old when grand homes really were worthy of that description. We spent two nights at Cleftstone in late September in their grandest room, the sprawling "Cleftstone Room." A... More

The Cleftstone Manor was unknown to us. We found the name in a guide book. We found a beautiful inn with lovely inn keepers serving very delicious breakfasts. We got guidance as to where to eat and what to see. We were even handed a CD guided car tour through Acadia National Park. How convenient!! We had a wonderful stay.... More

Each of our three nights at the Cleftstone Manor this past August complemented the wonderful days we spent hiking and biking the spectacularly scenic trails of Acadia. The tea, lemonade and cookies, the spacious and beautiful common areas of the Manor adorned with vases of fresh-cut flowers, and the clean, comfortable and nicely appointed guest room, were great to come...

We recently spent five very enjoyable days at the Cleftstone Manor in Bar Harbor, Maine. Its historic setting represents the best tradition of vacationing in Bar Harbor. The rooms are spacious, bright and beautifully furnished and decorated in an elegant manner. Their breakfast menu is unique and varied, and the staff is helpful and courteous. Within its historic setting, the... More

This was our first time at a B&B and did not know what to expect. From the moment we began our trip to Bar Harbor, the staff at Cleftstone felt like family. We were impressed with the immaculate condition that Anne and Bob (and staff) keep this B&B. It was quiet and the bed was so comfortable. And oh! The... More

The Cleftstone Manor is an excellent venue to compliment your trip to Bar Harbor. Convenient to both the town of Bar Harbor and Acadia Natinal Park it is a very comfortable B&B with a variety of comfortable rooms, very accomodating hosts and staff, and excellent food.
