I want to go back and would stay here again. My husband and I loved the homemade granola. Roberta shared the recipe (after a small donation to the food bank) and then supplied us with a box of oatmeal to make it. Roberta was so we Coming. Her breakfasts are wonderful,

We stayed here for two nights and were delighted with the lovely water views from the garden and a very comfortable room also with lovely views. Roberta was very welcoming and helpful and also thanks to Sharon who was always smiling. The house is within a very short walk to the town with many restaurants and shops. Also a short... More

What a beautiful and special home! We felt so privileged to stay here during our four-night stay in Bar Harbor. Roberta was a wonderful host -- warm, welcoming, and friendly. My wife and I are both vegan and Roberta was very accommodating. We felt comfortable asking her for anything. Breakfast was delicious and hearty -- homemade granola and baked breads... More

Roberta is wonderful ! and so is Shore Path Cottage. Due to my lateness in making reservations, I was unable to stay at Shore Path. I went to see it, as Roberta seemed so welcoming over the phone. She had me to breakfast with the guests and was a wonderful hosts. I felt so blessed to meet Roberta, that when... More

This bed and breakfast is wonderful! When we pulled up to the house i felt as if i were in a dream, or at the very least a movie that took place in a summer home overlooking the water. Its true, that the actual house is not right on top of the water but it still boasts a wonderful view... More

From the moment we pulled up to The Shore Path Cottage to the moment we left, I felt "at home". Everything about it oozes charm - the cozy living room, the bedrooms and most especially, our hostess. We enjoyed not having TV for the week. The breakfasts are healthy, delicious and filling. Tea and cake is served all day. The... More

We enjoyed a restful 3 night stay in Bobs room. Loved being able to walk the shore path. Breakfasts were wonderful. The deserts and wine were a nice perk in the evening. If you are planning a trip to Bar Harbor you cannot beat this location. We would for sure stay at this B&B again.

This must be the most beautiful place to stay in Bar Harbor! We spent four glorious fall days in the Shore Path Cottage and loved every minute of it: Roberta, the owner, is a wonderfully warm host and keeps a most welcoming atmosphere. Our room ("Peter's room," like the other ones named after Roberta's children) has a fabuluous large and... More

We just left Shore Path Cottage after a 4 night stay and were very pleased with our stay there. A very quiet location with ready access to the downtown Bar Harbor and pier attractions. All within walking distance. The breakfasts were filling and delicious. And the housekeeping was meticulous. The owner, Roberta, has created a very nice atmosphere for anyone's... More

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
