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!

This is a lovely inn and was an excellent value compared with other hotels in the area. It is right in the center of things, just a few blocks from the main downtown and very close to supermarket, restaurants, basically everything. The rooms were like staying at your friends house: very comfortable, with everything you need to enjoy your stay.... More

I am a Bar Harbor summer resident and couldn't wait to go to Danielle for a massage. I love the feel of the Inn and Spa. Very cozy&clean. My massage was amazing! I have many issues from head to toe, and Dani addressed every one perfectly. Will be back next week!

This was the first and what I am sure several return visits. Check in was smooth and friendly. We had room 317 for 2 short nights over the 4th and found the location so convenient to walking downtown and a short drive or bike ride to Acadia. Room was clean and just right!! What we paid here for 2 nights... More

It was my first time in Bar Harbor and the Quimby House Inn was an amazing place to stay. It was very clean and the staff was very polite and respectful. The location was great, we were about 8 minutes walk to every important place in Bar Harbor (downtown, village green and town pier). If I ever go back to... More

This was our first trip to Bar Harbor. We decided to stay within the town and Quimby House was well located for that. It is the second street from the water (so no water views). After we arrived in Bar Harbor, we never had to use our car again! We walked to the sandbar to cross to Bar Island, the... More

Recently, I took my boyfriend on vacation to Maine. I have been there many times but it was his first time there. He thought it was weird how insistent I was that we stay at Quimby House Inn during our time in Bar Harbor...until we got there. The staff is always super friendly and very helpful. The rooms are very... More

Very clean, quite, pleasant. Great location. Everything you need is ether next door or 5 min walk . Loved our room and deck on each floor, if you don't wish to sit on the sun and need shade - there are tables and chairs in the shade of old trees. No breakfast provided inside , but quality coffee and tea... More

I was up in Bar Harbor for a job interview and this little family-run place was perfect for resting and relaxing after a long day! It really felt like being at home and the staff were all very friendly. Everything was very clean and tidy and there were plenty of places to eat within walking distance.
