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

The Shore Path Cottage was beautiful, friendly, reasonably priced and quite a homey feeling. I highly recommend staying there to anyone in search of a place to stay in Bar Harbor ME. Plus, the owner had a vast knowledge of the area and places to go to. Would definitely stay at the Shore Path next visit.

Great week with beautiful weather! The Bird's Nest gave our group some privacy not often found at B&Bs. 2 bedrooms - great for our group of 2 couples but could sleep up to 8! Also, kitchen area with all important refrigerator and Kurig coffee. We would stay here again!

What a marvelous week we had in Bar Harbor, made even nicer by our stay in the Bird's Nest at Shore Path Cottage. The ambience and friendliness, not to mention the knowledge of Bar Harbor and Acadia and surrounding areas, made our stay wonderful. Thanks!

My wife and I stayed with Roberta at her Shore Path Cottage for 2 nights in May during a tour of New England - by far, THE best B&B we had stayed in to-date. The rooms are charming, the location private/secluded yet downtown accessible by a beautiful path along the shore , and Roberta is the friendliest woman you'll ever... More

My husband and I stayed her for a portion of our honeymoon and it was a wonderful decision. The location cannot be beat. You are 5 minutes from everything in town, a minute from the Bay (with a view from the deck) and with ample parking you never have to drive to anything in town. The house is beautiful and... More

We took a weekend trip to Bar Harbor and stayed at the Shore Path Cottage and were delighted! It was warm, inviting, close to town and we walked right out the door down to the ocean for a walk every morning. The house was unique and the rooms lovely!! The breakfast was fantastic and Roberta was wonderful! We look forward... More

I never write reviews, but had such a wonderful experience with Shore Path Cottage I felt absolutely compelled to write in! This is the perfect place to stay in Bar Harbor. The home is not only gorgeous- a stunning overlook of the water with gorgeous detailing throughout from the 1800s- but also incredibly comfortable. The innkeeper and staff welcomed us... More

The customer service was top notch, location is fantastic, and the rooms are clean, updated, cozy, and beautifully decorated. Thank you Roberta and team for making... More
