Next year our title for the rating will change to "one year hiatus"! And the reasons are, in proper order, the new owners, the extraordinary comfort, interesting guests and the location of this incredible B&B. Make a reservation, go and enjoy. Roger

Brian and Cathy are perfect for this industry. They are such friendly and generous people. As I am gluten intolerant I bring my own gf cereal. Brian saw that and told me he could make me gf pancakes and also appeared with a gf muffin. Trust me this doesnt happen too often. Their breakfasts are wonderful. Our room was gorgeous... More

This was such a relaxing and comfortable B&B. The owners Brian and Catherine made us feel right at home. We felt like family. They were very accomodating to all of our needs. Breakfast was delicious! And, the afternoon "homemade" cookies were very yummy! All the rooms were beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Prince Albert room and it was nice... More

The Hearthside is a wonderful B&B just one block from downtown Bar Harbor. Brain and Catherine were very friendly and most helpful in providing information which lead to great dinners and outdoor activities. The breakfasts were several courses and delicious. We stayed there for six nights and every breakfast was special and different. In the afternoon they provided home made... More

My daughter and I went to Bar Harbor for the day and we were booking the day of and wouldn't be arriving until midnight and they made arrangements for the late arrival. We booked one of their smaller rooms and after I booked they called me back and upgraded us to a room on the second floor to make it... More

Brian and Catherine are excellent hosts. They went out of their way to accommodate a dietary restriction. And even came up with some new wonderful recipes! We have never experienced a three course breakfast before! The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Hearthside is an easy walk to downtown and Brian has materials to guide your visit to Acadia National... More

Over past years we have stayed at the Hearthside many times. It has always been an exceptional experience. The new owners, born and bred in Bar Harbor, bring the same high quality and careful attention that make the stay exceptional. I hate to tell you this, because you will have booked, and we won't be able to get a reservation!... More

There are many Bed and Breakfast establishments in and around Bar Harbor. Before booking I looked at most of them. I can tell you that if you select Hearthside you will not be disappointed. We stayed four nights in June and hated to leave. Catherine and Brian are great hosts. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is right... More

Loved our stay at Hearthside! First time to Bar Harbor and our stay at Hearthside was definitely part of a fabulous trip! Every breakfast was homemade with a different muffin or sweet treat at the end of the meal-aka 'dessert'. Brian makes an amazing peach walnut muffin! The owners and food are fantastic. We have stayed at multiple B&B's and... More

Brian and Catherine are the perfect hosts, friendly, kind and very knowledgeable about the area. And their breakfasts are the best I've had in a long time. We stayed for 4 days and each day the breakfast was over the top, better than the day before! So filling we never needed lunch. If you catch Brian and Catherine at a... More
