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

This is a wonderful home, with nice, large rooms and an amazingly talented and energetic innkeeper. Even in a five star restaurant, I've never seen such an impressive breakfast presentation. Andrew is talented, welcoming and patient. He grew up in Bar Harbor and his parents bought the historical home in the 70's, so his knowledge of the area is amazing.... More

The perfect place to stay. Two blocks from the main street, so it is a quick walk to the pier and all the restaurants and shops, but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. Acadia National Park is only a few minutes away. Beautiful home with enviable antiques. We really enjoyed getting to know Andrew, the host. He is... More

We stayed at this lovely inn for one night and will definitely be back. The innkeeper was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms very comfortable, breakfast was delicious, and the location was perfect. It was a treat to meet Benjamin as well.

We spent 5 days in Bar Harbor, Maine just before the Labor Day holiday. I did a search of places to stay through the Chamber of Commerce in Bar Harbor. found this Inn which seemed "too" reasonable. Further searched reviews and decided to try this place... Am I glad I did!!! This is a very lovely, comfortable inn. Andrew our... More
