We LOVE this inn (B&B). There are lots of lodging choices in Bar Harbor, but this is always our 1st and only choice. Pam and Scott are wonderful hosts and Mary's pastries are out of this world. The rooms are lovely -- we usually stay in the Sargent Room. Beds are comfy...we always get a great nights sleep. The locatin... More

My husband and I brought our 20-year-old daughter to Bar Harbor and Acadia for a four night late summer getaway before she goes back to college. The Norumbega Room at the Moseley Cottage Inn was the perfect accommodation for us, as it has a Queen bed and a Double bed so we could stay in the same (very large) room... More

We arrived to bar harbor with no reservation! Everywhere appeared to be booked, except the quality inn for $200 a night! Ridiculous! So I started calling around, hoping someone may have cancelled a reservation! And we got lucky! This place had an open room! The staff was amazing!! Easy check in :) We had the "Cadillac Room" on the third... More

We were looking for a place to spend three nights in Bar Harbor. We had never been there before and knew nothing about it. We searched the web and found many listings for lodging. Moseley Cottage was one. It offered motel type units and rooms in the cottage. The pictures of the Cottage rooms were very inviting. We decided to... More

We stayed in the hotel and it was clean and beds comfortable. I would definely stay again. The only down fall was the front desk was under staffed. We called a few times in the morning during our stay and no one answered. We arrived a half hour early and was unable to check in due to no staff so... More

Bar Harbor & Moseley Town Motel was the third stop on our 3 week New England Road Trip. As three couples, we booked 3 of the 4 upstairs Motel Rooms, which were just what we needed for our 3 night stay. It’s so close to the town centre, but in a quiet no through road. After a day’s walking in... More

We stayed in the motel. It has been upgraded, with comfortable beds, on a quiet street, with off street parking, and easy walking to all the restaurants and shops in Bar Harbor. The other furniture is typical (dresser, desk, chairs, night table), although it doesn't fit the space very well. (This didn't bother us, though.) there is also a Keurig... More
