Stayed at the end of the season when many places were closed but found this quaint B&B very nice. Little trouble with the heat in the room but after a call we were certainly comfortable. Would recommend this place.

We visited Bar Harbor at the end of the season. Maybe we were expecting a little break on the room cost, but had no such luck. There were 3 in our party and were given a room with two double beds on the first floor next to the street. Granted, this is one of the few hotels open at the... More

We enjoyed our two night stan at the Quimby House Inn during the third week of October. The Bar Harbor tourist season was almost over however the staff was most helpful at recommending attractions and restaurants. Centrally located in town, almost everything is within walking distance. The room was large, the shower especially powerful, and the early morning coffee hit... More

We came late in the year, when Quimby House was the only place still open that would take dogs. That was fine with us. The room -- although it's more like an apartment than a regular hotel -- was beautiful, with a kitchen and living room to boot. Ours had a fold-out sofa, so there was plenty of room for... More

Clean nice room with friendly staff. Parking is limited. Nice location that is not directly downtown but we easly walked down to the harbor and the main street shopping areas. Very happy with this inn.

Very nice hotel. It was a bit spendy but everything on the island is. Lots of hot water in the shower. A little bit of street noise so if u think that will bother I get a room on the back. Nick is VERY helpful pointing out good restaurants and places to see. You won't regret staying here.

While I had only been to Bar Harbor once prior, I didn't realize this Inn was in such a good location until we got here. We were met at the front desk by a gentleman whose name I did not catch but it threw me off when we said hello and he only said "yep" before asking for our name.... More

We have stayed at Quimby House several times and feel very comfortable there. It is walking distance to restaurants, shops and the waterfront. We stayed one night with another couple in a room nearby. We were all very satisfied. It's not fancy but for the price in that location is very reasonable.
