I have to say that this was one of most enjoyable stays at a B&B that we have ever had. Brian and Catherine were wonderful hosts. They made us feel like we were family. The breakfasts were to die for! If you haven't been to Bar Harbor, Maine you must go. It is a beautiful part of this Country. A... More

We loved our stay here, comfortable, friendly atmosphere, wonderful breakfast with home made granola and full fare of breakfast delicacies. Afternoon tea and sweets to make us feel at home. Our room had a working fireplace and was bigger than what it appeared on the pictures. The hosts were very caring and nice and genuinely helpful. We will gladly recommend... More

Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Heathside and would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was awesome, rooms were clean and comfortable (though adding tv's would be a welcome addition) and the innkeepers Brian and Catherine went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Pricing was also excellent compared to the other B&B's in... More

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

Hearthside Bed & Breakfast is a wonderful place to stay if you are visiting Bar Harbor, Maine. Perfect location, within very easy walking distance to all that the quaint town has to offer. 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
