The location was great for walking to the main street for shopping and dining. There was a grocery store about a block away which was helpful. While the place was certainly very clean, everything about it is a little worn out. The furnishings were dated and cheap. Bathroom was tiny but adequate. I did not find the reception staff to...

I cannot say enough good things about my recent 2-week stay at the Quimby House Inn. From the time I first spoke to Tim on the phone, in the early spring, to the time when I checked out (after a 2-week stay!), I was impressed with how friendly, accommodating and responsive Tim & Danielle were. My accommodations were clean, well-kept,... More

I had a massage with Emily at Quimby House today and it was one of the best ever! I had been hiking and kayaking in Acadia and was very sore. She took the time to work on all my sore spots, stretched out my muscles and I felt great afterwards. I have not stayed at the hotel,but the massage was... More

When I arrived I was a little skeptical of the Quimby. Walking in, we found out there was no breakfast which was fine with me due to the copious amounts of places to eat in the Bar Harbor area. Our room had a king bed and a pullout sofa. The room was very put together and larger than expected. The... More

Clean, 2 room suite was spacious. Bed and sleeper sofa comfortable. Very nice and comfortable living room furniture. Close to town. Staff was friendly. Close to road, could hear traffic at night but did not mother me.

With the price a good one I was a little concerned but when we got there it was great. It's an inn with different size rooms that you can choose from. We were on the first floor behind the registration desk next to the free coffee and I was a little concerned but should not have been. Never heard a... More

The room was large as was the bath, the location is convenient, and most importantly the staff and owners are extremely professional, helpful and friendly. They helped me resolve a booking problem with Travelocity, even though it was not in their personal or financial interest to do so. You just don't find that kind of service at the chain hotels.

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
