This is a lovely cottage & motel one block off Main Street. The location is excellent as all of downtown is in walking distance. We were able to park our car here & walk everywhere. The motel room was a little on the small size, but still had two queen beds & a chair. It wasn't a problem as we... More

We stayed in the Bubbles room and it was perfect for a family of four. Very spacious. The location is great, close enough to downtown Bar Harbor to walk everywhere while still being on a quiet side street. The breakfasts where yummy especially the home made pastries. My only complaint, a very small one, is that the main breakfast selections... More

Our first time in Bar Harbor, we picked the right place to stay! Just off Main Street but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town, this quiet Inn was just what we were looking for.... Beautifully decorated, spacious rooms, tasty breakfasts, owners and staff pleasant and helpful! Loved being able to walk into town! Would highly recommend!

We stayed in the Precipice Room which is a little slice of heaven on the 3rd floor. Very spacious and light. Loved it. Beautiful linens and so comfortable. The breakfasts are fresh and delicious and generous with many wonderful selections -- we enjoyed having it served on the porch. The scones with fresh Maine blueberries and eggs Benedict to order...

We stayed in a motel room for several days. The room was clean and comfortable and right in the heart of Bar Harbor...close to shops, restaurants and the Shore Path. We would definitely choose to stay there again.

We loved Bar Harbor and our stay at Moseley Cottage Inn! The room was perfect and the location is the best. We looked forward to our morning and evening walks to the harbor! The owners and their staff were so nice! We recommend this Inn highly. The breakfasts are delicious, too! Thanks again!

We stayed in the motel. The room was very clean and the king size bed comfortable. The motel is within walking distance of many shops restaurants and the harbour. I had knee replacement surgery and had no difficulty. The only comment I would ask any hotel proprietor "if you put a grab bar in the tub and shower, why not... More

I was hesitant to book this Inn and the Cadillac room after reading reviews that the rooms were super small and seeing on the Inns website that "what you see is what you get!" That said, we had a wonderful stay at this Inn and enjoyed the Cadillac room. Yes, it is small but they have made the room feel... More

This was our 5th year returning to Moseley. Each year we extend our visit because we hate leaving! We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to see all of the sprucing up they did over the winter. Fresh paint, new balconies, new mattresses and more. We always stay in the motel which is great value, just steps from Main Street... More

I read many glowing reviews about the B&B/Motel and I thought that for the money it was a great option for staying just off Main Street in Bar Harbor. Its difficult to keep the reviews separate however because I believe the guest that stay in the main house have a much different experience than the guests that stay in the... More
