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

We have stayed at the Hearthside with Barry and Susan a number of times. Our stay has always been excellent. The hosts are charming and the guests who stay are equally interesting. Book a room, you won't be disappointed.

I stayed at Heartside B&B for two days this past summer. This was the second time I stayed there during a visit to Bar Harbor; the first visit was in Fall 2009. I booked online through their website, and received a call from Susan few days later to confirm the date and get the credit card information for the reservation.... More

We recently visited the Hearthside B & B for the third time. We were not disappointed - everything was as wonderful as on our first visit, which made us want to come back. One of the main reasons for the success of this b & b is that the proprietors, Barry and Susan, have created such a friendly, inviting, and... More

I have been to Bar Harbor many times, and have stayed in several different B&B's. While they have all been "nice", this is the first time that I can say I made a connection with the proprietors. Susan and Barry made the stay in Bar Harbor just that much nicer, which is an amazing complement since Bar Harbor itself is... More
