Happened upon this place looking for a reasonable last minute stay. The inn keeper was young, hip and charming which added to the ambience. Most B&Bs are run by knowledgeable middle aged couples but Andrew added a contrast to the turn of this century Victorian. Making a stuff formal atmosphere warm and inviting. The evening wine and cheese in the... More

Great location with a fantastic owner. Andrew made sure that all of our needs were attended - made restaurant reservations for us, great conversation during the afternoon social and great breakfast service every morning. Inn is a short walk to everything offered in town. Will definitely return.

The Inn is conveniently located just a few steps from the center of town, very close to restaurants and bars. Big advantage: off street parking! The house is truly amazing - literally "full"y furnished from bottom to top it tells stories of generations; take the time and have a look around, it's worth it! Everything is in perfect shape and...

We had a great stay! The inn has a great location, just a short walk from all of the shops and restaurants in town. The room was comfortable and relaxing. Andrew, the inn keeper, was friendly and always helpful. Breakfasts were excellent!

Had two nights booked here over Memorial Day weekend. After arriving and staying the first night, we decided to book two additional nights. If your staying in Bar Harbor stay here and let me tell you why: First the house is beautiful and you can walk everywhere which is a HUGE plus because parking fills up quickly. Second the innkeeper... More

This inn has it all: great location just blocks from the town center, a professional and friendly host, antique furnishings and collections befitting the Queen Anne architecture, and a reasonable rate. Breakfasts were truly amazing (including artful plating), and afternoon wine and cheese was another great opportunity to chat with Andy and the guests.

We walked into the Thornhedge without a reservation and were able to snag the last room for 2 nights in the week before Columbus Day. Andrew, the Innkeeper, is a young and very professional host. He has a very relaxed and engaging style. The late afternoon wine and cheese, and the morning breakfast were opportunities to bring the guests together... More
