We were very happy with our little studio in Snell House. An excellent central location, clean and comfortable room with convenient kitchen facilities (we ate at home most evenings), and a lovely garden to sit in. Not fancy, but homey - we were very satisfied.

This is a real gem. A quiet street, a great path to the ocean, a bed and kitchen, very easy walk into town on Atlantic street. Mary and Paul were great with suggestions and so helpful. The property has a garden and chairs to relax and also a porch with a bench and chairs. We watched a young deer right... More

My family of four stayed at the Snell House for 5 nights in late June and felt totally at home. Paul and Mary couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming, beginning weeks before our arrival as we chose which of the accommodations might work best for us. We stayed in "George's Study" - a two bedroom, 1 bath apartment with... More

We stayed in Rhoda's Room for four nights & in was perfect for my husband & I. When we arrived late afternoon, Mary greeted us & welcomed us to our room. She was so welcoming, showed us around, & explained that her husband, Paul, would be around & available during our stay. I had previously talked & emailed with Paul... More

I visited with my husband, sister, and mom in early September and the Snell House was the perfect place to stay for us. It's really the only place I could find in downtown Bar Harbor that has a kitchen yet lets us stay less than a full week. The icing on the cake for me is the garden... we got... More

My husband, mother, and I recently spent a week at the Snell House. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, convenient setting. Paul is extremely friendly and warmhearted. He was always available, but never intrusive (we did not get the chance to meet Mary). My husband and I slept in the "Boys Room" (2 bdrm) and my mom slept... More

Snell House provided a very convenient and comfortable location for our 3 generation family (grandparents, parents, 2 young kids) to explore Bar Harbor and Acadia. The "Boy's Room Apartment" offered 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, an eat in kitchen, and a deck on the second floor of the house. Off street parking and a short walk into town provided a great... More

Our party of 4 adults stayed at the Boys' Room, which is actually a suite with 2 generous size bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen. Snell's House is in an absolutely quiet location just 150 m off the main street and with easy access to the shore path as well as all the tourist attractions of Bar Harbor. Paul was very friendly...
