Most of the reviews I read raved about this place so I was a little disappointed when I didn't feel the same way. I really wanted to like this place but I couldn't help but feel like I was bothering the staff when I had a question. Maybe I just caught them on an off-day but they didn't seem very... More

The Quimby House Inn was the perfect place to stay for a quick getaway! The room was clean and spacious, and provided a comfortable space for relaxation. Would definitely return to the Quimby House Inn!

Very happy to find such a great place open in the off season. Great location on one of the main streets in Bar Harbor. The innkeepers were very hospitable and welcoming. Accommodations were nice and clean and there was a historic feel that added to the town's charm. Very reasonable rates too.

The room was very basic. A little dated but we'll worth the money. Close to downtown as well as the National Park. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom basic but very clean. Will definitely stay again on my next visit to Bar Harbor and the park

From the lack of customer service by the front desk staff to the poorly lit room to the unpleasant towels, this property was a real disappointment. The area behind the front desk was a mess with papers and other items stacked and falling over. The area right near the coffee station in the hallway housed a lot of cleaning equipment... More

This is a lovely little hotel. It was not in the center of town, but very walkable to anything you might wish to see in town and it is just a short drive to Acadia park. The rooms were extremely clean and the bed comfortable. The furnishings gave it an antiquey, very New England feel and the price was right.

The location was perfect! Walking up 2 flights of stairs to Room 314 was just right with me. I liked the option of the outside staircase as well. It reminded me of a European hotel - efficient, pleasant, the room not large, and not expensive. The bathroom was just right. Tim and other staff members were very nice and helpful.... More

This Inn is within an easy walk of dining and shopping. Our room was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The owners Tim and Danielle were very helpful with information about the area and dining recommendations. This is a place we'd stay again.

Charming inn located a short stroll from a supermarket, superb restaurants, Main Street and the Harbor. A 10 minute drive to Acadia National Park. Ample parking is a real plus! I stayed 2 nights in room 313. A spacious room with plenty of storage space and room to relax after a day in the fresh air! Mini fridge and glassware... More

Just spent 6 nights at the Inn and it was a perfect location for our visit to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Easy walk to downtown Bar Harbor, quiet and comfortable. Excellent coffee ready early each morning, and owners and staff very friendly and helpful. We were happy with our accommodations.
