I can't really add to all the wonderful things people have already said...I agree with all of the accolades 110%. I can't say enough good things about the innkeepers, Matt and Kristi- they are everything you want innkeepers to be. They are 'real' people and it felt like home only totally relaxing and stress free. We highly recommend the Saltair... More

Matt and Kristi are great hosts very warm and friendly and full of information to help make the most of your visit. The rooms all looked lovely (I sneaked a peek) and those with views of the water are extra special in my opinion - shame Matt or Kristi couldn't fix the weather during our stay as we had most...

Thanks Julie! You guys did have a pretty rough stay weather-wise. It's ironic that your review should come today because it's pouring rain outside and we're having to eat breakfast inside for the second morning in a row after a month of serving on the back deck! It was great getting to know you guys and chatting over breakfast. We... More

I have mixed feelings writing this review as I don't want to have trouble getting reservations here in the future! Since there are already so many good reviews, I don't see any need to hold back... The location is everything you could possibly want. Direct water frontage and access to the sandbar walkway over to Bar Island, awesome. Adirondack chairs... More

Had a great time at this B & B. Matt and Kristi are very personable and helpful. They have a wonderful home in Bar Harbor ! A real pleasure to spend our 5 days in BH here. So nice it was right on the water, near the sandbar to Bar Island, which was amazing. Breakfast was first class! Loved our... More

Thanks Jason. Matt and I were just commenting yesterday that maybe we should change the name of the room from the Cadillac Suite to the Sunset Suite! More

Why stay at the Saltair Inn? Matt and Kristi, along with their well-behaved children and dog, are the Innkeepers whom you would love to have as your neighbors back home! They are down to earth, gracious hosts with wonderful recommendations. They also serve delicious breakfasts. We just returned from a one week stay in the Master Suite which was extremely... More

We had to find a spot at the last minute in Bar Harbour and so glad we chose this B&B. Trip was 1st week of June jus before busy season which was good for us. Stayed in Chart Room- Lovely. Matt and Kristi were so welcoming, felt like we were visiting old friends. They were able to accommodate our gluten... More

My husband and I just finished up a week stay at the Saltair. Location is prime, with downtown Bar Harbor being just a short walk away. Our room, the Sedgwick, is the smallest at the inn, and is on the street side, but neither the size, nor the traffic was any bother to us. Innkeepers Kristi and Matt were great... More

My husband and I are return guests of the Saltair Inn. We stayed there this last week for 4 nights (June 20-24). We were very comfortable there, with the cleanliness, rooms/beds/pillows, window seats in the room, heated tile bathroom floors, A/C, tasty breakfasts, and, my husband's favorites, the afternoon baked goods. Kristi and Matt have been busy making some updates... More

Thanks so much for all your kind words. We really enjoyed your company as well, even Bob's when he is grumpy and in need of cranberry juice! I would love it if you would send my those two photos you posted. They were amazing! Hope to see you both again soon. More

My wife and I stayed here 2 nights (7-9 Jun 2014) and were so impressed by the warm hospitality, the excellent food, the comfortable room, and the outstanding location. Matt and Kristi are wonderful hosts. We felt so welcome here! Our hosts helped us greatly with smart tips on making the most of our time in Bar Harbor and Acadia.... More

My brother and I visited Bar Harbor in May, and while the weather was a bit grayer than we'd hoped, the warmth and welcome we experienced at the Saltair Inn made up for it. Matt and Kristi are relaxed hosts, so you almost take for granted their attention to detail, and to making you feel at home. The breakfasts were... More
