Roberta and Melinda were wonderful hostesses during our 4-night stay. They were friendly, helpful, and served excellent breakfasts (which were more healthy than most). We enjoyed interacting with the other guests around the table during in the morning, as well as in the living room in the afternoon. The location can't be beat; off the main route just enough to...

Just got back from a nice 1st time trip to Bar Harbor. My wife and I stayed in Bob's Room at the Shore Path Cottage, and it was just what we were wanting. The location is really good - on the water with just a short 5 minute scenic walk into the heart of the town. The inn keepers are... More

Our family of 4 stayed in the Bird's Nest rooms...plenty of room for all of us. We loved the location! It was so close to everything and we took advantage of walking in to town each day and night. Roberta and Melinda really made us feel at home. Gluten and dairy free meals were no problem for them...I even got... More

Huge old home on a quiet street by the Shore Path in Bar Harbor. Could walk to main street shopping and restaurants or take the free shuttle to further destinations. Roberta had wonderful suggestions to make the best of our days there. She made reservations for us and made my father a birthday cake for his 75th birthday. Comfortable, lovely... More

We only spent one night here, but we will definitely return. We felt like we left family when we departed in the morning after the wonderful breakfast. It was my husband and I and my husband ended up with a bad tooth and when we left, they did everything they possibly could to make it feel better except the actual... More

We stayed at Shore Path Cottage for three nights. The hostess are so nice and helpful. The breakfast was great. The room we were going to be in was occupied so we were upgraded to Cecilys suite on the third floor. We could watch the sunrise from our suite which was beautiful! The whole house is so lovely! Melinda gave... More

This is the perfect location for a small group of friends to stay. My husband and I stayed here with four other couples, all friends from college. The large veranda facing the ocean was a favorite meeting spot. We loved gathering at the same table for breakfast, along with guests from all over the earth. The Shore Path led us... More

My husband, two daughters and I stayed in Cecily's Suite at Shore Path Cottage in August. Roberta and Melinda provided more than we'd hoped for. Everyone loved the breakfasts of eggs, pancakes, pound cake, fruit, and home made granola. The delicious food and sitting and talking with the other guests at breakfast made for a perfect start to our day.... More

As soon as we walked through the door we felt a warmth and joyful energy from both Roberta Chester and her daughter, Melinda. My boyfriend and I looked at each other and knew we both had the same feeling. We felt "at home". We absolutely loved our room and the view. As soon as we unpacked, we walked into town.... More

My four daughters and I recently made our first ever trip to Bar Harbor, and we could not have been more delighted with our experience at the Shore Path Cottage. We found the inn to be comfortable and clean, cozy and homey, truly steps from the water on a quiet street yet a short walk to the activities of town.... More
