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

My boyfriend and I went on vacation to Bar Harbor in the off season and stayed at the cozy and charming Canterbury Cottage. The bed was incredibly comfortable, the room was lovely, breakfast in the morning was delicious, and we were walking distance from everything in town. Martha and Tim were gracious and hospitable, giving us directions and suggestions whenever... 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

We just returned from a week in Bar Harbor, and had a wonderful time at the Canterbury Cottage. If you look at my profile you will see that I don't often write reviews, but our stay was so nice and Martha and Tim so accommodating that I felt compelled. The breakfasts were delicious, typically starting with a unique fruit dish.... More

We were very pleased to have picked Canterbury Cottage for our recent short stay in Bar Harbor. It is a charming B&B, ideally located close to shops and restaurants and outdoor attractions, with very friendly hosts (& their dogs), who made us feel welcome and served amazing breakfasts too. As others have said, the rooms are small - cosy -... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Canterbury Cottage. It is well located a few blocks from the center of Bar Harbor and near to the bus stop where busses go around the area including Acadia. The breakfast was delicious. We had baked pears and a huge stack of pancakes! Our room, the Look Nook, while beautifully decorated, was a tight... More

A small bed and breakfast with only 3 guest rooms. The rooms are small, but well equipped, clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast is a two course full breakfast, which is very tasty. The owners are very friendly and helpful to make the best of your stay (very good tips).
