We stayed at the Thornhedge Inn for the first time last October. We liked it so much, we returned last weekend and also brought my son, his wife, my sister and her husband. Everyone loved it. There is a beautiful sitting room where the six of us had some wine and cheese at night after dinner (and after the earlier... More

My husband I recently stayed four nights at the inn and were well pleased. Innkeeper Andrew was very helpful with his suggestions for things to see and places to dine on the island, our room on the third floor was quaint and intimate. On site parking, blocks from all the Main St action perfect. Breakfasts weren't too shabby either. Would... More

My husband and I stayed at the Thornhedge Inn for two nights this past week. Both of us enjoyed our stay. When looking for a place in Bar Harbor, there were a few places that caught my eye. When it came time to book, we chose Thornhedge and so glad we did. The location was close enough to the center... More

We stayed at the Thornhedge Inn for two nights in the room: Strawberry Hill and loved it. The room was on the second floor - used to be a servant's quarter - and has quite a big ensuite bathroom. The shower itself is a little small but water pressure was fine and the heater was working perfectly when we had... More

Thornhedge Inn is one of the original estates of Bar Harbor - beautifully furnished with lovely antiques - fun wine time with the owner Andrew, his adorable cocker spaniel Benjamin, and other guests - just one block off the Main Street with tons of shopping and restaurants - most beautiful town, harbor and shore path walk in Maine!!

Pleasantly surprised by our wonderful experience at Thornhedge B&B. When booking, I thought it was quit pricey, but in retrospect, I consider it a great value. My family had a small reunion and we all booked at Thornhedge. We comfortable fit around the breakfast table with other guests and could meet in the parlor at 5PM for Wine & Cheese... More

My wife and I had a great time staying at Andrew's B&B. It is a short walk to wonderful restaurants. It is a perfect location for visiting Acadia. Andrew also does a wonderful job with breakfast. He clearly enjoys taking care of his guests and makes everyone feel welcomed. We also enjoyed the wine and cheese along with the conversation... More

Minutes walk from the village green and its array of restaurants and shops, the harbour itself and a short drive to Acadia National Park, we found our two night stay at Thornhedge Inn ideal. The house is large, classically decorated and rooms are spacious. Andrew, our host, was very informative and provided a great, filling breakfast across the large communal... More

We stayed in the basement Tallyrand room for three nights. It was spacious and nice. Andrew was extremely helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations, etc. The breakfast was great every morning and the wine and cheese happy hour was a nice time to get tips from other guests. We hope to return to Bar Harbor and we will definitely stay with... More

We just spent 6 days in the Tallyrand room and we couldn't be happier. It was our first time to Bar Harbor and Andrew made our stay so nice. The inn itself is a treat to stay in. It is decorated so beautifully. The breakfast meal was real gourmet. We didn't know how we'd like sitting at one table for... More
