Needed a place to sleep 2 adults and 3 children and after much searching online found this place to stay. We were given the cottage beside the house and had lovely clean, airy, large, bright with en-suite rooms. The breakfast at a large table with other guests was informal and very friendly. The children were as well catered for as... More

I loved it. Roberta, Lisabeth and the house maid were so nice, the breakfast was AMAZING, I loved socializing with the others who were at breakfast, and I felt as if I were at home. Please, if you plan a vacation, plan it next to the beautiful Atlantic Ocean in the small town of Bar Harbor, ME!

I'll start by saying that finding the perfect place to stay is among my top priorities when vacation planning. In preparation for a trip to Bar Harbor, I combed through at least 6 or 7 different sites (including TripAdvisor) with hundreds of listings for lodging options. I sought a charming B&B--very close to the water and town, but offset from... More

My wife and I are experienced travelers. Ten years ago we discovered Acadia National Park and the Shore Path Cottage. Roberta Chester and her warm and friendly family have created one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in and we have returned every year. Comfortable rooms, on grounds that are well manicured and lots of things to do... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Shorepath Cottage. Roberta and Lisabeth were so welcoming, just as if we were members of the family. They served delicious, hearty breakfasts and treated us with snacks in the evening. The location is fabulous - quiet and secluded, yet just a 5 minute walk to town, restaurants, and the harbor. We have stayed in... More

We loved our stay at the Shore Path Cottage. It had a peaceful, comfortable energy. It was a wonderful location for our teen-agers. They could easily walk wherever they wanted to go. We really liked sitting in the big yard looking over the water! Very enjoyable!

My family and I had a wonderful time at Shore Path Cottage. Roberta and her daughter Kate could not have been more friendly and welcoming. I loved the blue and white decor, the proximity to the shore path, the view of the water. chatting with the other friendly visitors. I would definitely stay there again.

This place was perfect for us, a couple looking to hike, kayak, enjoy fresh food and savor quiet moments with an ocean view. We stayed 3 nights. Our room was comfortable, and we had our own bathroom. Breakfast was delicious either at the dining room table or the back porch ( with an ocean view). Homemade muffins, breads, and egg... More

Shore Path Cottage was lovely in every way. We stayed in Roberta's room and woke up every morning to a view of the long backyard with lush green grass and a vegetable garden leading to the shore path and the ocean beyond. The first night we looked out and saw a schooner with red sails as dusk descended. Roberta and... More

Starting with it's location..quiet street with a backyard path right to the shore..only a block from restaurants, shops, and night life...and Roberta, our lovely hostess, welcomed us the moment we arrived on our motorcycle. The house was so cozy! The room clean and comfortable with fresh flowers brought in on our second day! So many interesting books on shelves! Roberta... More
