Brian and Catherine made our first trip to Acadia better than we could have imagined! Our week had a funny start when we realized we arrived to Bar Harbor a day early. While the Hearthside was fully booked for the night, Brian took the time to check other inns to inquire about vacancies. We knew at the time that he... More

Brian and Catherine together operate a wonderful B & B. Upon our arrival, Brian had lots of information and great ideas for tours, sightseeing, and hiking around Acadia National Park. The B & B is on a quiet street, but within easy walking distance of everything in the town of Bar Harbor. Recommendations for restaurants and menus were all readily... More

Hosts Brian and Catherine were gracious, flexible, and full of information. Brian, a lifelong Bar Harbor resident, suggested several Acadia hikes that were perfect for us (Gorham Mountain and Beech Mountain) and offered to let us take home his hiking guidebook! We asked him to make a copy of the relevant pages instead, which he did. Those hikes were a... More

I am not normally a B&B goer but the Hearthside B&B is now on my list of places to return to again. Brian and Catherine Hamor were the best host and hostess. They go out of there way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. They know the island and the town of Bar Harbor and can direct you to... More

I cannot say enough about our truly fantastic experience with Brian and Catherine at Hearthside. My boyfriend and one of my best friends and I stayed for a wedding weekend at the end of July 2015. B&Bs are the way to go on the island, and we did a ton of research before deciding on Hearthside. As frequent domestic and... More

Brian and Catherine couldn't be more gracious hosts. Ample breakfasts were breakfast and lunch for us! The B&B has lovely rooms and is located less than five minutes (by foot) from the heart of Bar Harbor. Brian is a native of the town and had lots of good suggestions for things to do. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would... More

The highlights are Very engaged, knowledgeable hosts Nice decor in the main rooms Cozy, clean, well appointed rooms (we stayed in Canterbury Court) Excellent breakfast--from french toast with fresh fruit to eggs benedict with fruit smoothies--more than enough to fill you up for a day on the trail. Overall, a wonderful place to stay, we highly recommend it. We hight

Loved this warm B&B! Hosts are outstanding people as well as cooks! Hearty, delicious breakfasts and they never broke stride when people asked for things prepared in a different way. Extremely knowledgeable about the area and happy to talk about it. So nice to come back late afternoon to a home baked goodie! Rooms well appointed and quiet.Great location in... More
