A comfortable, homely and centrally located guest house. Barry and Susan were great hosts during our stay in October and the atmosphere was extremely friendly. The home cooked breakfasts were excellent. Some of the other guests had been returning year after year and it was not difficult to see why! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Bar Harbor, exploring the... More

We had a love time staying at this bed and breakfast and even got engaged while we were there. The hosts were very helpful, providing all the information we needed about the park. The breakfasts were delicious and there was coffee and sweets out in the afternoon to enjoy. We hope to be back some day! We actually stayed in... More

My husband and I had a very enjoyable stay at The Hearthside. Though we were only there to sleep and grab some breakfast because we were on a tight schedule, we had a very comfortable stay. We stayed in The Glass Menagerie Room which doesn't have a bathroom in the room. It wasn't a problem at all. We sat on... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Hearthside for over 10 years now and, quite simply, it's perfect. The owners, Barry and Susan Schwartz, set the tone for the place; they are both warm, funny, welcoming, totally down to earth people. They are always available to their guests and genuinely enjoy the guests' company, getting to know you if... More

We loved our stay here in Bar Harbor. Barry & Susan were so helpful and hospitable! Delicious and generous breakfasts, coffee, tea and hot chocolate available all day, with afternoon home baked cookies... just hit the spot! Excellent location too! Really enjoyed meeting so many nice guests; wish we had exchanged addresses, felt like family!

This in has a perfect location, everything in Bar Harbor is an easy walk. We stayed in the glass menagerie. The small balcony over the porch was perfect for morning coffee. The balcony looks onto the neighbors house and is accessed through a small door (we had to duck through it). I would recommend this room. We were on a... More

There are numerous shops, restaurants, bakeries, galleries, parks, and tourist attractions all within 2 minutes in either direction of this great B & B. The hosts love... More

This is a very nice B & B. It was our first time there but I would stay again and have already recommended it. Barry and Susan were extremely friendly and helpful with information for the area. We stayed in the Emily Dickenson room. It was large, comfortable and nicely decorated. The food was excellent and there was a lot... More

We spent two nights at this charming bed and breakfast. After 28 years of running this establishment, Susan and Barry are the ultimate hosts. Breakfasts are delicious and tea and treats are available at 4 each afternoon. The Hearthside is a must stay when visiting Bar Harbor.
