We first visited Hearthside in 2001. We next visited approximately 5 years later. We last visited in August of 2015. We've been guests at a number of B & Bs in several parts of the country over the years and no one has measured up to Hearthside's hospitality, food, location and charming innkeepers. Barry and Susan were great hosts on... More

We were so happy that we reserved this B&B for six nights. It was perfectly located for all the activities we scheduled for ourselves. We easily walked the couple of blocks to wonderful restaurants, gift shops, and the harbor. We also set out many days to explore the entirety of Desert Island! Each day was started with a delightful breakfast... More

My wife and I stopped through Bar Harbor for a night during a ten day trip to Maine, and our only regret was that we didn't stay longer. Hosts Brian and Catherine, who we had met before, run an immaculate property and take the time to understand their guests' goals. They are natives to the area and seem to know... More

Don't forget that next year is the 100th anniversary of Acadia National Park so we are hoping you will return for the grand celebration in Bar Harbor. Sorry for the delay... More

One of the best B&Bs we have ever visited. The Inn is centrally located and within easy walking distance to the restaurants and stores in Bar Harbor. The rooms are nicely decorated and quiet. Our hosts, Brian and Katherine, were very friendly and helpful in making suggestions for restaurants and activities during our three day stay. They even organized a... More

Hearthside was a wonderful B&B choice in Bar Harbor. From the moment we arrived, Catherine and Brian were wonderful hosts. They made delicious breakfasts, gave great pointers for site-seeing and restaurants, and were overall gracious hosts, concerned about your every detail. The rooms are comfortable and cozy. We would definitely stay there again!

The location is great, within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the harbor. Just a short drive to Acadia National Park. The breakfasts were delicious but the best part of our stay was the hospitality extended by our hosts, Brian and Catherine. They made us feel like family and I was sorry to leave.L.p.
