This property gets a lot of good reviews and truly there is nothing wrong with it. Great location and adequate rooms. It is dog friendly however there is no yard and even though the owners had two dogs of their own it didn't feel like a good place to be with a dog. For some reason I felt claustrophobic in... More

Cute rooms, VERY small bathroom/shower, walkable to all the downtown Bar Harbor restaurants, etc. Loved being able to bring my dog with me, and a short drive to all the hikes in Acadia National Park. Owners are very knowledgeable, and breakfast was always good. Owners are sometimes friendly and chatty and other times stay out of the way, but overall... More

The B&B is very charming, located just of the Main Street of Bar Harbor. We had the Sun Room which was delightful, huge comfy bed and... More

My girlfriend and I are annual visitors to Bar Harbor, and this year needed a place to stay in town that would accommodate our young puppy. Canterbury Cottage was one of the few pet-friendly places we found, but having stayed there now, we would stay there again in a heartbeat even if we didn't have our dog with us. There... More

Found Canterbury Cottage via TripAdvisor and not disappointed! Accomodating innkeepers. Perfect location among funky shops and restaurants plus easy drive to Acadia National Park, which was our ultimate destination. Innkeeper Tim provided lots of detail and suggestions for hikes to take and views to see. Incredible park, by the way. Room was spacious for 3 with a KS bed +rollaway.... More

This place is great! The hosts couldn't have been nicer. They were helpful & made us feel welcome. The location is ideal for walking pretty much everywhere you want to go. The house dogs are adorable. Do yourself a favor & stay here!

Located just steps from downtown and the harbor on a relatively quiet side street. A very tasty breakfast is provided. Parking is tight and our room was on the small aide but comfortable. They allow pets and that's a must have for us. There was free Wi-Fi but our room must have been at the outer range as it dropped... More
