The owner makes you feel right at home. Lovely rooms with bath. Walk through the yard to the Shore Path. Downtown 10 minute walk. Very relaxing. Close to Acadia National Park. If your looking for a 5 star luxury hotel, this isn't for you. But as our first experience in a B&B we were very happy here. Also, Lisbeth makes... More

When I read the reviews of Shore Path before I visited, I marveled at the variety of descriptions of the visitor's experiences there, and now that I have been there, I think the differences can be explained by what one expects from a B&B. A stay at Shore Path is not a luxurious experience, and the cotttage is not a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Shore Path for 2 nights in Roberta's room. The house and room were beautiful! Roberta's room has a private bath,fireplace and wonderful view of the ocean. You can see the sunrise through the east facing windows. Breakfast was delicious both mornings, the best was the strawberry cheesecake! Our hosts, the owners, were so... More

We have stayed at the Shore Path Cottage four times in all our visits to Acadia National Park. The innkeeper Roberta and her staff have always been gracious hosts and are all most attentive to our every need. We cannot see ourselves staying anywhere else. The former family home has been turned into a very special B&B. The immaculately maintained... More

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
