There were 2 positives about the Inn, it was in a great location and other than some mildew in the bathroom, everything else was very clean. The cons about the room made it so we wished we had stayed home. We had to get a room in the annex due to us having a pet with us. I understand not... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful in answering our questions. The Inn didn't serve breakfast but there were two restaurants in the block that were easy to get too. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is very well located. It's just a 5 min walk from green village (where you take all the shuttles to explore Acadia National Park) and from bar harbor center. This hotel was cheap compared to other hotels in the area, it is not an amazing hotel but it is great for the price and the service was amazing.... More

The Inn was in a good location, in walking distance to the center of town. Our room was very clean, cozy, and reasonably priced. The front staff was very pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed... More

My husband and I visited Acadia National park and stayed in the Quimby House. It was charming and fresh. We were in a great spot to walk through Bar Harbor, being close to everything and minutes from the park. The staff was helpful and friendly. We would absolutely stay here again if we are blessed with another trip to Acadia!
