The people who complain about this place have no clue. Every historic B&B has a few minor glitches....it's part of the charm. This place was wonderful. Spring for the Master suite if it is available. Fantastic. Great sitting room with a panoramic view to die for. Great comfy king bed...huge bath with romantic jacuzzi and detached shower.Great hosts, terrific location.... More

The Saltair Inn is a beautiful waterfront inn located right near the heart of downtown Bar Harbor. Location. Perfect. Couldn't ask for better. Right on the water and within walking distance to downtown. Comfort. Very good. Nice bed. Nice sitting area. Nice bathroom. Breakfast. Excellent. Staff. Very helpful and friendly. Privacy. Poor. We were in the first floor Master Suite,... More

We're sorry you were not as comfortable as you could have been. The gap under the door is something we've been meaning to address that we will take care of as soon as possible. We do our best to make sure the Master Suite as quiet as possible as it is located right off the foyer even though we are... More

This is a B&B with an extraordinary location on the water in Bar Harbor. Beautiful views of the water, and as an added bonus it is very close to the sandbar to Bar Island, which you can walk across at low tides. It is also only a few blocks away from "downtown" Bar Harbor. The home itself is lovely, and... More

We normally don't do B&B's but this place is excellent. A++ location, walking distance to town, to Bar Island (2minute walks), great views of the water, and an easy parking situation as well. The owners, Matt and Kristi, were very friendly, very good chefs (breakfast was great - not just rolls and jam - but real breakfasts), very knowledgable about... More

We loved our stay at Saltair Inn. My husband and I had one night away without the kids and this was a perfect place for us. We stayed in the Cottage Room which was charming and cozy. The bathroom was updated and had a jacuzzi tub. Everything was clean and crisp. The Inn Keepers were so friendly and hospitable, full... More

We spent three nights here recently and had exactly the experience we hoped for. The B&B is a lovely home, with well appointed rooms- everything looked like the pictures we had seen online. We certainly felt as though we had a mini apartment, as our room had a grand bathroom/sitting room off the master, as well as a comfortable living... More

The location of this B&B in Bar Harbor is perfect. Close to very busy Bar Harbor but not too close. A world away from the congestion by only a few blocks with a spectacular view of Frenchmen's bay. However, the lovely old inn is just that....old. We stayed in the largest room as it was the only one available at... More

My husband and I arrived at the Saltair Inn and were excited to learn we had been upgraded to the Harbor Suite, due to work being done on the front of the house. We made sure to take advantage of the suite's amenities, heated floors, beautiful tub, fireplaces, and water views. Matt and Kristi are very welcoming and always willing... More

My wife and I stayed in the Beehive Suite for several days while visiting Acadia National Park. The room was quiet and very spacious, featuring a nice window seat overlooking the bay near the bed's foot. The bathroom, recently remodeled along with the suite, was very nice, too. Likewise, we found the hospitality to be very friendly and generous, with... More

We just spent six wonderful days at the Saltair Inn with innkeepers Kristi and Matt; It didn't take long to feel right at home and settle in to our most comfortable room with an incomparable view of Frenchman's Bay. It is quite obvious that Kristi and Matt relish their role as innkeepers as they make you feel most welcome and... More
