My daughter and I stayed here the last week of their season. We stayed 5 nights in the motel and one night in the B and B. the staff and owners were accommodating to our late arrival. The food was excellent and service was spot-on. Loved the little town and enjoyed our walks in Acadia National Forest. We hope to... More

This cottage is anything but, at least in our modern use of the term... you know immediately that you have stepped into the Moseley era -- the 19th century -- in all its glory. Yet all appliances and features are determinedly efficient and flawless in their modernity. The Cottage has been carefully and elegantly maintained with a design sense --... More

This was our fourth stay at the Moseley Cottage Inn - we always stay in the motel part of the inn and are never disappointed. The rooms are simple, but are large and have all the conveniences you need, including a Keurig coffee maker with lots of k-cup refills. Cookies in the lobby and a very quick walk to the... More

We stayed in the motel. Rooms were large, king bed new and comfortable, large rooms with comfortable chairs, Keurig coffee maker, small refrigerator, and very friendly staff. Our rooms were immaculate and the price was amazingly reasonable. Great location... you can walk anywhere in town, yet off the main shopping area, on a dead-end, lovely quiet street.

This was our 2nd stay here, and our room was even nicer than last time -- very clean, comfortable and well-appointed. And, the wifi worked in our room this time -- and was easy to use -- join the network once, and you're good to go. We were also impressed by all the little things: mini-fridge, Keurig coffee maker in... More

I stayed at the Moseley Cottage Inn during the fall and had a lovely stay. All the staff are very friendly, the rooms were spotless, and it overall felt very homey. The breakfast was very delicious! I definitely recommend staying here if you're going to Bar Harbor. It's in a great location, just outside the main shopping/restaurant area, so you're... More

For a vacation location in downtown Bar Harbor, the location and accommodations are great. The proprietors are warm and welcoming. The breakfasts are wonderful homemade baked goods and great breakfast fare. Warm and comfortable rooms cap the experience. Would strongly recommend.
