Excellent stay at the Saltair Inn! Matt and Kristi are both so nice and knowledgeable about the area. They gave excellent recommendations on everything from bike paths to restaurants! Great location on the water and right at the edge of town!

On our recent trip to Maine we had the good fortune to spend a few blissful days at the Saltair Inn. Ideally located on West St. Surrounded by grand old sea side mansions and offers tranquil water views. Matt and Kristi proved to be the warm and welcoming hosts with suggesting she for eating and shopping. Small touchscreen such as... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about the Saltair Inn. Matt and Kristi made us feel right at home. The Inn is a beautiful historic home located right on the water. Bar Island is right in the backyard and we had fun walking across the sandbar to the island during low tide. Downtown Bar Harbor is just down the street.... More

This was our second visit in 2 years, and once again the experience was great. Matt and Kristy couldn't be nicer, and the Master Suite was delightful as usual. Friends from New York joined us as well, and declared the visit to be a complete success. I wouldn't think about staying anywhere else in Bar Harbor.

My husband and I just spent five wonderful nights at the Saltair. We stayed on the third floor in an ocean view room called the Cadillac suite. Very comfy, amazing view, clean, and quiet. Matt and Kristi were fun to meet and very attentive to all the guests. The breakfasts on the back deck while looking out on the bay... More

Saltair Inn is a great place to serve as your hub as you explore Acadia and Bar Harbor. Everything in Bar Harbor is within walking distance so you do not have to waste time finding parking. Matt and Kristi were phenomenal hosts. My wife has a food allergy and they went above and beyond to prepare a breakfast that she... More

After a seven-year hiatus from vacationing in Bar Harbor, we decided to go back for our 30th anniversary. We chose to stay at the Saltair Inn, and we were not disappointed with our decision. The location was ideal with sweeping views of Frenchman Bay and Bar Island from the back porch. The Inn is a close enough walk to downtown... More

Our stay at the Saltair B&B located on Frenchman's Bay was exactly what we hoped for. We stayed in the Arcadia Suite "Awesome". The view is amazing facing the grand lawn out to the Bay and Bar Island. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows even more amazing. The Inn is very neat and clean and the smell of... More

Our family has been spending vacation time in Maine, specifically Acadia, for years, but this time we had the opportunity to spend a night at the Saltair. I'm so glad we did!! We stayed in the Master Suite, which is on the first floor, but still felt private and secluded. We had a great night's sleep in the bed, which... More

If you don't like Norman Rockwell, then this is not for you. The Saltair Inn, is Americana , its what a B & B is supposed to be ! Going to northern Maine is about enjoying the outdoors and being in rural Maine. This is the perfect place to stay if thats what you are looking for. Every room is... More
