Spent two nights at the Hearthside B&B for our three year anniversary as a base to explore Acadia National Park and had a great experience. The owners, Brian and Catherine, really went out of their way to help us plan our vacation, lending us guide books, maps, and even binoculars, in addition to helping us map out routes through the...

The owners, Catherine and Brian, are a breath of fresh air. Completely unpretentious. Eager to serve without being overbearing. Brian is a native, and knows his town. Great breakfasts, too. They've made a B&B that doesn't feel like the stereotypical B&B. And that is most welcome.

My husband and I stayed at the Hearthside B&B for our anniversary weekend. The location was convenient to the downtown area of Bar Harbor (easily walking distance) without being in the middle of the noise of downtown. We stayed in the Wuthering Heights room which is on the second floor facing the street. It featured a queen size bed, two... More

We were blown away by our stay here! We were greeted by Brian and his lovely granddaughter the day we checked in. Catherine was out of town so we didn't get to meet her. His granddaughter baked homemade chocolate chip cookies that were absolutely delicious! We were slightly damp and cool from the rain so we enjoyed cookies and coffee... More

I am just returned from a 5 night stay. I was in the WINSTON CHURCHILL room. Luxurious huge bed, working fire place, jacuzzi. Perfectly kept. The hosts were hospitality itself--friendly, helpful, warm. I had to leave early today and they made me an early breakfast. Would stay again and highly recommend.

My wife and I like to go the B&B route when we travel without our kids. We've been to 10-15 places all over the world and found the Hearthside B&B to be one of the most well rounded places we've had the fortune to stay at. The home is well kept and well appointed and centrally located. We stayed in... More

Brian and Catherine were two of the nicest and outgoing hosts my wife and I have ever met in all of our stays at different B&Bs. They are very familiar with the area and can provide great restaurant and activity recommendations. We stayed in the Prince Albert room. The bathroom is disconnected, located down the hall, but we never met... More

This Bed and Breakfast was perfect! The room was charming, the breakfasts delicious, the host friendly, and the location was gorgeous. Tea and coffee is always available throughout the day, snacks provided, a cozy fireplace lit, and it is within walking distance of the town. Private, reasonable prices, and friendly staff; I can't say enough about this place!

My husband and I stayed at the Hearthside B&B for two nights and it was wonderful. The inn keepers Brian and Catherine were so warm and inviting and provided lots of tips on the town, hiking and biking Arcadia and good restaurants. Brian grew up in Bar Harbor and knows it well. The Inn is immaculate and comfortable and the... More

My husband and I stayed with innkeepers, Brian and Catherine, at the Hearthside for five nights last week and cannot say enough. The B&B is large, warm and charming, located two blocks from downtown on a quiet side street and provides everything you want for an excellent B&B experience. We enjoyed walks to town, reading by the fire, good restaurants,... More
