Bar Harbor is one of our favorite places to vacation, and the Saltair Inn is our favorite place to stay. Matt and Kristy are wonderful hosts and make guests feel like "family". The food, location and accommodations are second to none. We stayed in the "Beehive Suite" - new, spacious, and great view of Frenchman's bay. I saw a poor... More

After our recent 4-5 night stay with three other couples, we cannot say enough about the Saltair. The Saltair is a beautiful, comfortable, spacious B&B that offers some of the benefits of staying at a hotel or a large house. The setting is ideal: gorgeous waterfront property, many spacious rooms (some suites) with private, good-sized bathrooms, roomy welcoming gathering spots... More

We just had the most amazing mini getaway at the Saltair Inn! We booked at the last possible second and when we pulled up to the Inn I practically jumped out of the car and did a little dance :). The view was absolutely stunning! I couldn't wait to grab a bottle of wine and sit on the Adirondack chairs... More

My wife and I decided to take a last second trip to Bar Harbor ME. We hit the jackpot at this bed and breakfast! The location is perfect. Directly on the ocean with breath taking views. A short stroll to downtown tourist area with a ton of great restaurants. The owners are attentive and very friendly. The breakfast each day... More

We just had a terrific stay at Saltair and would absolutely stay there again. They enjoy the same view as the ultra-exclusive Bar Harbor Club and are just a few blocks away from the center of town. Matt and Kristi were great hosts - very helpful and breakfasts were delicious. But the VIEW is what it's all about. We enjoyed... More

Malcolm and I had a really good time there. The place is beautiful and comfortable. Matt and Kristy were very friendly and helpful on restaurants and places to see. This has been the best couples vacation we have had. Thanks again for everything.

The inn is located a short walk from town (just up the hill from the waterfront and end of Main St). The road was not overly busy, and the waterfront view of Bar Island was great. The location also easily affords access to the sandbar (at low tide) providing a quick, local hike with a nice view of the waterfront.... More

The Saltair is in a great location. The views of the bay are breathtaking. We stayed for 4 nights in June in the Harbor Room. Very comfy king bed, large bathroom, sitting room with great views. Breakfast was delicious every day. Matt and Kristi recommended trails to hike and places to see. We walked to downtown Bar Harbor every evening... More

We were huge fans of this quaint yet perfectly appointed and modern B&B during our stay in Bar Harbor, and would recommend it immediately to friends and family. Matt and Kristi were fantastic hosts and made phenomenal recommendations every time we asked for advice-- from the best bike rental shop to the best way to hike Penobscot mountain in Acadia....
