Not the place for you if you want "dream beds", jacuzzi's, valet parking, turndown service. This is the place for you if you enjoy fresh vegetables, feeling at home, the coolest concierge's on the island, and feeling like a local. Have stayed there 4 times dating back ten years. The location, comfort, and beauty of the grounds make this one... More

This has been the very best location possible. If we return to Bar Harbor one day, then it will be the Snell House or we will choose a different destination. Mary and Paul are doing everything to make the stay a great experience and as enjoyable as possible. I am only blaming them for not taking away my car keys... More

We stayed here for our marriage anniversary. I will strongly recommend this place if you want to stay in a quiet place yet close to the restaurants. You can cook, save your left overs from a meal in the refrigerator and can be a tourist yet have a home like place to crash at night. Lovely place.

We stayed at Snell House for a few days while exploring Bar Harbor and Acadia. It was a great home base with easy parking close to downtown without dealing with all the traffic and congestion. Also, good price during the busy season for 3 friends traveling on a budget. We also would recommend the corner deli nearby with great blueberry... More

My wife and I stayed at the Snell House in early September and highly recommend it. It's located about two blocks off the main drag of Bar Harbor, which is a great location. Close enough to easily walk to the shops and restaurants, but quiet at night. Our accommodations consisted of a large upstairs apartment, with a stove, kitchen appliances,... More

This is our second time staying at the Snell house and let me tell you it is truly like being home. Mary and Paul, the owners of Snell, are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. They are both very helpful and are always checking to make sure your stay is as pleasant and as comfortable as it... More

I go to Bar Harbor for a week every June. About five years ago, when the price of an "inexpensive" bed and breakfast topped $100, I started looking for a reasonably-priced alternative and found it in the Snell House. I stay in the Duplex which offers a full kitchen and loft bedroom - perfect for one or two people. Other... More

We go up for Columbus Day weekend every year to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Instead of staying at a stuffy hotel, we wanted to rent an efficiency or suite, that way we could cook our meals if we wanted. And cutting our overall costs. We booked Snell House and it was just perfect. Paul let us check in early, the... More

My husband, myself, and our 2 teen boys rented the Boys Room on the second floor for a week. The biggest great thing about Snell House is its location! We were astonished at how close to the downtown this house is. It is pretty much at the end of Atlantic Avenue, so it is about 1 block to Rte. 3.... More

What a wonderful place to stay! We spent 3 days here earlier this month. It's on a quiet side street but is a very quick walk to the center of Bar Harbor. Paul and Mary, the owners, are great! It's close to Acadia and just about anything else you would want to do in the area. The next time we... More
