I wanted to write in and give a big "thank you" to Tim. We ran away from a bad experience the night before to the Quimby House at Bar Harbor. Tim was so gracious and even allowed us to check in early and put our stuff in the room. He was also so wonderful to spend time telling us about... More

Not the Bar Harbor season but still a great place to visit. Clean and quiet room. We were on the first floor of the Annex building, first floor...great for our dogs and us. An easy walk to the center of town.

Not too far from the main street of Bar Harbor which is great for going to the local restaurants. Big clean room, warm and friendly staff willing to accommodate your needs. Massage is available which is always welcomed in a stress filled life. Hopefully we will come back again when the weather is warmer so we can enjoy a whale... More

In my various touring of New England, I found myself in Bar Harbor at Quimby House during both the summer and winter and both times ended up staying in room 101. The accommodation was great! Real clean room and spacious! Tim and Danielle were really friendly and knowledgeable with great recommendations for places to eat and things to do, yes... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night during our vacation in August. We waited until the last minute to book a room, which is never a smart thing to do in a popular summer vacation spot. The morning of our stay we called around to different hotels asking if last minute rates were available. We spoke with the... More

We reserved for two nights about 3 weeks ahead but this tough winter and other issues caused me to cancel with the 10 day penalty period. No problem at the time of cancellation with the expected $25 penalty assessed but refundable if we rebooked. We were able to rebook Tim was very friendly and helpful. Danielle not so much. She...

We booked a room here on the day before we arrived in town, based on the Trip Advisor reviews. However, I would say the TA reviews somewhat overstated the accommodations here. The Inn is family owned and operated, which is nice. I think they have various size room options, which may be nice for families traveling together. I thought our... More

We travel with a large golden retriever so we are always looking for nice, pet friendly hotels. This is our second trip to Bar Harbor and we wanted a different hotel from the one we stayed at before. We found Quimby House Inn and checked it out on Tripadvisor. It got very good reviews so we decided to make reservations... More

Quimby House Inn was recommended by a friend who had visited in October 2012. The location was convenient to downtown Bar Harbor and the Inn was very comfortable and welcoming. We arrived on Sep 30th, the day before the "government shutdown". Fortunately, with directions from the Innkeepers, Tim and Danielle, we were able to get to see the magnificent sunset... More

We have stayed at the Quimby House several times and had wonderful stays, and this time was no exception. Stayed in Room 106, which is right outside the door of the main house, and thought we might be disturbed by late night comings and goings, but not a problem at all. We were a couple and a single woman and... More
