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

This place rocks with hospitality. Hosts, Brian and Katherine make you feel like favorite relatives. Our room was perfect, well appointed with seating and a fireplace. Excellent shower with quality shower head. This Inn is spotless and you instantly can tell that great attention to detail has been taken to keep the inn looking so fresh. The breakfast this morning... More

Interesting inn, great friendly hosts, good advice for hiking from Brian. The inn was quite full, we were on the third floor, cute room, if there's no parking in the inn, you can park on the street. When you drive down the main stretch to look for the street, be careful because there is no street name, it's a one... More

We had a great time here. Brian and Catherine were outstanding hosts and could'nt do enough to make us feel welcome. They are a mine of information on local places to visit and were particulary helpful when our rental car had brake problems. We stayed in the Wuthering Heights room which was comfortable with plenty of room.

Our visit to bar harbor and Acadia national park was highlighted by our stay at this B&B. Our hosts, Catherine and Brian were extremely gracious and friendly. The Inn is beautiful. The breakfast they provide is fabulous. The property is maintained in great fashion. We will be back asap. Thank you Catherine and Brian

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
