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.

We stayed here for 1 night after camping in nearby Acadia NP and had a room on the 3rd floor. The room (#317) was very spacious and immaculately clean. The furnishings were in good condition and the bed was comfortable (neither too hard nor too soft). Our room had a window towards the street but inside was quiet. We stayed... More

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
