Stayed two nights in this well situated B&B on the Shore Path and very near the Main St. The location is very quiet and peaceful with plenty of seating areas on the lawns, verandah and guest sitting rooms. The room was quiet but a little dark - a common problem for us in the US. Breakfast was ok.

We were once told that bed and breakfasts either have great hosts, or a great location. So, Shore Path Cottage has both: great hosts, a great location, plus, a really nice ambience, a lovely environment, and two great rocking chairs on the porch looking out onto the water! What more could you expect from a bed and breakfast. Its on... More

My mother & I spent one night in the Bird's Nest II suite and loved our room. Very bright and sunny second floor open floor plan. Comfortable beds, very clean and affordable! Within walking distance of town, though located on a quiet dead end road and right on the shore path. Looking forward to going back, maybe this fall!

We had a really nice vacation while staying at the Shore Path Cottage. The inn is immaculate and the grounds are lovely. You can walk through the grounds to the Bar Harbor Shore Path, which is lovely, especially in the evening. The cottage is located one block from the center of Bar Harbor and the ocean can be seen from... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Shore Path Cottage. Our room was roomy and comfortable. Both morning we awoke to the most beautiful sunrise. The breakfast, cakes & cookies were terrific. It was a very easy walk in to town from the street or the path that is along the backyard of the cottage.

A relaxing and welcoming retreat . Perfect location with private access to the Shore Path and an easy stroll to downtown and Main Street. Our room (Roberta's Room) was impeccably clean, bright, cheery and welcoming. Comfortable bed, quiet and a fabulous view of the garden and water with a beautiful sunrise. Breakfast was always a treat with a different daily... More

We have had a great week at Shorepath Cottage. What a location! Its back porch has a nice view down a long lawn to the water, with boats occasionally going past, and it's just a few blocks from the heart of Bar Harbor. "Cottage" is a misnomer, by the way. This is a large, well kept older home, clean, light... More

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
