My husband and I spent a week in the Master Suite of the beautiful Saltair Inn this past July. We loved the large comfortable room with a wonderful sitting area looking straight out to Frenchman Bay. The room spanned the width of the Inn with windows at both the front and back of the house. We never had a problem... More

A perfect combination of location, views, food & room. Matt & Kristi couldn't be nicer hosts. We stayed in the Cottage room (great value) but our street view to front of home was not problem because of all the other massive decks, lawn and views of French Bay on this water front property. We enjoyed sipping wine while watching amazing... More

You can't find anything like it in Bar Harbor. Matt gave us some great advice on daytime hikes and local entertainment and Kristi is so sweet! We felt well taken care of and still felt... More

The owners Matt and Kristi are great Inn Keepers. Relaxed yet they run a tight ship, clean and well maintained. They do it all while raising three children. The breakfast was wonderful, the room was perfect and the walk across to the Island during low tide, despite the cold, was well worth it. Have a cup of coffee, take your... More

My wife and I stayed with Matt and Kristi for several days in early November and had a most delightful time. Their transformed Bar Harbor "cottage" is first rate in every way from the wonderful, varied breakfasts to the variety of rooms available, to their personable, relaxed style of innkeeping. It's an easy walk to restaurants, Bar Island, the downtown... More

My husband and I spent our mid-October honeymoon at the Saltair Inn, it was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and it was a wonderful and relaxing experience. The home cooked breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the family style dining area was great for interacting and getting to know the other guests. Matt and Kristi's hospitality was... More

My wife and I had a very nice visit to Bar Harbor to visit family. We enjoyed very much staying at the Saltair Inn. Views were great, bed was extremely comfortable and breakfasts even accommodated my wife's food sensitivities. Kristi is a real people person and seems to genuinely like having guests in her home
