This cozy bed and breakfast is ideally located near the ocean a short walk away from restaurants, shopping, and the Shore Path. Mark greeted us with his fabulous smile and from the moment we stepped foot into the entryway, we felt like we were visiting family. The rooms are comfortable, cozy, with private baths, some with views. Even without a... More

The view out of our 3rd-floor room facing the Bay was gorgeous! Large, comfortable room (and house), friendly staff, great location. Would absolutely stay here again. Also located right on the Shore Path trail.

We very much enjoyed our time here. Setting overlooks the ocean and you can easily walk into town and the drive to Acadia National Park is quick. Our room was clean. Breakfast was tasty and the staff very friendly.

We had a wonderful stay at Shore Path Cottage. The property was lovely, and had a great verandah for relaxing, with a view of sea. The breakfasts were excellent, including many homemade goodies and it was nice to sit around the dining table, sharing experiences with other guests. The location was ideal, just a short walk along shore path to... More

We booked a spur-of-the-moment night here after walking through Bar Harbor's downtown area. We were greeted by Roberta's sweet smile and engaging personality. She won us over with her warm hospitality and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Mark prepared a fabulous breakfast and we were even given a surprise treat for our anniversary! The room was perfect and the ocean... More

I make a spring trip to Bar Harbor every year. I was searching for a different place to stay and came across Shore Path Cottage. It is very quaint at the end of a quiet street. There is an inviting L shaped porch with plenty of seating. The interior has a sitting area, kitchen and dining area and one room... More

I was looking for a special place to spend a low key, long weekend in Bar Harbor, near the ocean, the walking and cycling trails, walking distance to town and restaurants... a place with good books and good conversations, a comfortable bed and windows that can be left open at night, a delicious breakfast, a glass of wine late afternoon,...

We enjoyed our time at Shore Path Cottage; the location is excellent for the town and the national park, and our host Elizabeth was extremely welcoming. There is a great deal of home baking and this is evident in the breakfast and afternoon cakes, plus other home-made dishes at breakfast. There is also wine offered in the early evening. The... More

We loved everything about the B&B, the location, the owners Roberta and Lizabeth, the laughter, the food, the view and the time spent on the porch drinking coffee! Roberta baked us an apple pie for our last day, we stayed in the Roberta room, it was quiet, spacious and comfortable! I'm trying to determine when to return in 2015.....

We were thrilled that we'd chosen this wonderful and delightful cottage. It is an oasis from the hub of the noisy harbor waterfront. Ideal location, walk across the lawn to the legendary shore path, tucked away down a quiet quaint tree lined street. In the heart of it and yet serenely peaceful. Cecily and her family treat you as friends... More
