We absolutely loved our stay. When we walked into the inn we were welcomed with a cozy smell of candles & fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. There was a cozy, old fashioned feel. We loved our room. We just came for a day & before we left were planning on when we could make another trip back. We had a... More

Typically we just come to MDI for a day trip or we camp. This was our first time trying staying in Bar Harbor and it won't be our last. The Saltair Inn was perfect. The house is beautiful and very cozy. The breakfasts were delicious. The location is great, an easy walk to anything you need in town. Matt &... More

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at the Saltair. We've been to Bar Harbor numerous times, but this was our first stay at the Saltair. It definitely won't be our last. The inn is in a great location - walking distance to town, but on the quieter end of West Street, with gorgeous views of the water and... More

In spite of an extraordinarily cold and snowy Valentine's weekend, we had a wonderful romantic get-away at the Saltair Inn. It was glorious to wake up to the ocean view. Our hosts were warm, friendly and knowledgeable about hiking in Acadia. The hearty breakfast was just what we needed before we headed out for a snowshoe. Hopefully we'll be back!

My mom and I arrived at the Saltair Inn after a long drive from Portland. The inn is pleasantly located on West St. away from the main hubbub of Bar Harbor, yet is only a few minutes walk from everything. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and because someone had a scheduling issue, we were given a larger room... More

We have just spent two very comfortable & peaceful nights at The Saltair Inn. We stayed in the Acadia Suite & loved it. Old antique furniture and a lovely comfortable bed.The fire places really made the place cosy & warm on the cold nights. The Inn Keepers were very friendly & informative and breakfasts on both days were excellent ...... More

We found the Saltair Inn to be a charming B&B. Matt and Kristi were wonderful hosts; helpful, knowledgeable and conversational. They treated us like old friends. The location is an easy five minute walk to the restaurants and shops of Bar Harbor. The back lawn gently slopes to the waters edge, where at low tide you can walk across the... More

Matt and Kristi, the folks who run this lovely B&B, make you feel right at home from the minute you enter their place. The room is fine with all the comforts of home. We had a room with a fireplace and it was romantic. Their parlor was cozy and the breakfasts both days we stayed there got our engines running... More

We loved the Saltair: our room was clean and comfortable and had a nice bathroom, all remodeled. It IS on the water: if there is an island in the view, it has to have water around it, right? Matt and Christie were very pleasant, the breakfast was good! So we would recommend it.

We stayed at the Saltaire for one night. Two other couples had been there for at least five days. Moreover, they had been staying there each summer for at least seven years. It is easy to understand the attraction. The proprietors make you feel like you are their good friends. The breakfast was delicious. The salt water beach was pleasant.... More
