We spent four wonderful nights at Shore Path Cottage. The owner, Roberta Chester, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. My husband is a vegan, and I have a number of dietary restrictions, all of which Roberta graciously tried to address. The food was delicious and plentiful. Our room was lovely with a comfortable bed (we both have back problems... More

We stayed at Shore Path Cottage for two nights in the large room on the third floor and were lucky enough to have the floor to ourselves. We enjoyed our stay and liked the house and its owner. We also liked the fact that the house is very close to downtown but at the end of a quiet street so... More

We found Roberta and her family to be so kind and welcoming. The B and B was right on the shore path with views of the water from our room. Within walking distance of center of town and harbor was a big plus but on a quiet back street away from all the hustle and traffic. We were supposed to... More

We happened upon this B & B on our visit to Bar Harbor. It has a wonderful bay view and access to the Shore Path. We did not have to drive when going downtown in the evenings or daytime. It was a short drive to Acadia Park. Roberta is a gracious host and we enjoyed the friendliness of other guests.... More

Shore Path Cottage is located a bit apart from the hecticness of downtown Bar Harbor, but easily walkable to everything by the beautiful shore path. Innkeeper Roberta Chester was so friendly and considerate, including making special gluten-free breakfast items for my dietary needs, recommending the wonderful Cafe This Way for a fabulous dinner and providing a cozy, relaxed atmosphere in...

Great site to stay and walk along the harbor! Great breakfast and comfortable beds. The owner is someone you would enjoy meeting.

This is a great old house with easy access to town and Acadia Nat'l Park. A glass of wine on the viranda overlooking the ocean was a terrific way to end the day!

My husband and I recently spent 6 nights at the Shore Path Cottage and the experience far exceeded our expectations. We expected a nice facility in a quiet/convenient location for exploring Acadia National Park, but the experience was so much more. Roberta was an outstanding hostess -- really made us feel like family. Breakfasts were outstanding (I particularly enjoyed the... More

It you are looking for good food, interesting people, comfortable lodging and delightful scenery this is your panacea! PS: If your a writer then you will... More
