Room was very nice and pleasant. Good heating and air conditioning. The location is an easy walk to Main St, many restaurants and the waterfront, there really is no parking right downtown. You will appreciate leaving your car at the inn. I would have rated 5 stars except the bed is hard, for me, and the spa (a sauna) costs... More

When we arrived in Bar Arbour we didn't know where we would be sleeping. We found this place through booking.com and we got an even better price once we registered directly at the desk. The owner was a very nice, helping man who gave us tons of good advice on where to eat and what to do in his town.... More

Booked 2 last minute rooms and were pleasantly surprised by all that BH and the Quimby had to offer. The inn keeper was of great assistance with some travel reservation issues! The weather didn't cooperate but we made the best of our short trip. We also recommend the Black Friars Inn around the corner for both breakfast and drinks!

We brought our dog to Bar Harbor and chose this hotel because they allowed dogs in the separate annex building in the back of the lot. The room was up a steep stairs in the annex and our dog was afraid to climb them so they allowed us to move to a bottom floor room the next day. It was... More

Arrived in Bar Harbor, ME., without a reservation on a Saturday. Managed to get the last room in a very comfortable inn. Perfectly located for an easy walk to shops, restaurants, and the water activities. Large room. Priced nicely. Owner, and manager Tim, was very friendly, welcoming, and accommodating.

My husband and I traveled to Bar Harbour for a few days to enjoy some seafood, the ocean and hike the Acadia trail. We found the Quimby House Inn and booked a room. The Inn was easy to find, right on the main street going into the town, and very close to the trails. We parked in the back parking... More

Jack and I stayed here for two nights including Memorial Day. This inn was very nice. It is very close to lots of restaurants you can walk to. It is walkable to the water down a side street and lots of stores and shops at the end of the road. This was a plus on a holiday weekend because parking... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Quimby House in April, 2015. This accommodation was chosen over others due to factors such as location, amenities, and rate. We made the right choice! Our stay there will be remembered. Both Tim & Danielle are wonderful innkeepers! They go above and beyond to make their guests feel welcome. The inn... More

This will have been the fifth different property we've stayed at on Mount Desert Island, and not sure why we didn't stay here before - certainly won't be the last. It's hard to find pet friendly accommodations that are maintained and kept up as nice as any room - the Quimby House does just that. Plenty of heat, very clean,... More

I cancelled my reservation 5 days out and they still charged my $100.00. I would understand if this was during your peak season but we are in the middle of Winter. Come on people! Times are tough for people and you are not making it any easier.
