Loved, loved, loved this inn! The Saltair is a grand New England home with both great character and modern renovations, just a 1-2 minute walk from downtown Bar Harbor proper. Owners/innkeepers Matt and Kristi were gracious hosts who provided a warm welcome; insider tips on places to eat, trails to hike, and things to do; plus breakfasts worth getting out... More

Saltair Inn is an old yet beautifully restored seaside B&B that has maintained a unique and old fashioned feel of living in bygone times. It's a three story home with high vaulted ceilings, lovely front room with a big staircase and views everywhere you look. There is a great backyard right on the beach and at low tide you can...

We had never been to Bar Harbor before, and this B&B really made the trip. Matt and Kristi are both gracious and welcoming hosts, eager to help you plan your day offering great advice on restaurants, hikes, and other activities. The breakfasts were all outstanding, higher quality than most restaurants. It was great to eat on the back deck with... More

We knew nothing about Bar Harbor but the Saltair had good reviews so we booked. When we got there we were amazed with the beautiful location, the lawns stretching to the water, the stately home just far enough from town to be peaceful but convenient. Once moved into our room (with a jacuzzi tub and heated floor) we took a... More

We stayed at Saltaire in early July and found it to be perfect for us. The location of the home on the edge of Bar Harbor makes it easy to walk to town, restaurants, outfitters, and to bike to Acadia. Located on Frenchman's Bay, there are amazing views of the water from most of the house. One of our favorite... More

Thank you Matt and Kristi for providing my wife and I a great place to stay. Your breakfasts were outstanding, our room was spacious and neat and the view to the harbor was just beautiful. Eating our breakfast on the deck the last morning was really special. Oh what people in hotels are missing. We look forward to our next... More

Kristi and Matt absolutely run a top notch bed and breakfirst! I think just for these two super nice hosts it's worth staying there. Even before my husband and I arrived, I emailed Kristi some questions about Acadia and she replied very fast and gave me suggestions. They know everything, I mean EVERYTHING, about the park and Bar Harbor! And... More

While I am not one who frequently writes reviews, we had such a wonderful stay at the Saltair Inn that I feel compelled to leave one. We stayed two nights in the “Harbor Suite,” and we could not be happier. The room was great. We had a beautiful view from our room and spent an evening watching the sun set... More

My wife and I recently stayed 3 nights at the Saltair Inn. What an amazing place! Great location, right on the water next to the sand bar that connects to Bar Island at low tide. The house is only a couple blocks from the Main Street of Bar Harbor - close enough to walk to every shop and restaurant, but... More

You are truly made to feel at home at this lovely B&B in the historic district of Bar Harbor. The views from the back deck, the chairs close to water's edge, walks on the beach at low tide right out the back door of the B&B, all make one want to stay put and not explore Bar Harbor, and Acadia...
