We had a lovely three days at Hearthside B&B last week. Susan and Barry are wonderful hosts. The breakfasts and afternoon snacks were great and the room was very comfortable. The inn is in a great location and we appreciated all the restaurant and hiking recommendations. The other guests were friendly and considerate as well. Overall a fantastic vacation and... More

About the Hearthside itself: I stayed in the Glass Menagerie, a smaller room with a (private) bathroom around the corner. The slight inconvenience of that was more than made up for with the beauty of the room itself. I LOVED the leaded glass windows, the very large window seat, and the small porch off the room. It almost made me... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Hearthside B&B. Susan and Barry are great hosts and know the area well. They made recommendations for hikes in Bar Harbor and in Acadia National Park which suited us very well. The B&B is beautiful, well maintained and the room was very comfortable. They have a fridge for guests to... More

We stayed 3 days at this B&B and enjoyed our time there. It took a little while to get used to their sense of humor but we found the hosts very engaging. The breakfast was excellent. They have tour books to help you find hiking trails, birds, etc. We enjoyed getting to know the other guests there as well. You... More

We first stayed at Hearthside 28 years ago (according to Susan), which was shortly after she and Barry began the Inn. Things in Bar Harbor have changed over the years, but the Hearthside Inn remains a constant in our visits to the town. The improvements and continuous maintenance of the inn are evident by the condition of the property. The... More

My fiancee and I recently got engaged in Bar Harbor and beforehand we chose Hearthside to be the focal point of our stay based on the quaint, cottage like feel. We stayed at other bed and breakfast's before but Susan and Barry were the best innkeepers we've ever had. I had Susan even help out with the engagement plan, asking... More

Barry and Susan were wonderful hosts as we enjoyed Bar Harbor! They provided delicious breakfasts, clean rooms, and great advice about hikes! The flexibility to eat between 8-9:30 a.m. was appreciated. We enjoyed the blueberry hot tea each afternoon along with the sweet treats. We will stay here again when we return to Bar Harbor! Thanks for helping to make... More

The Hearthside inn is an ideal B&B for Bar Harbor. A very charming Victorian style with great hosts - Barry & Susan. Every room is spectacular. The location is on a quiet side street, and an easy walk to the main parts of town. Barry & Susan really know the area well and offer great suggestions, rain or shine. We... More

We first arrived in Bar Harbor completely overwhelmed by the beauty and potential of the area. As soon as we parked our car between the lovingly painted floral parking lines of Hearthside, however, we knew we were going to be taken care of. When we first met Barry, he was hard at work taking care of the grounds and with... More
