We stayed at the inn during our first visit to Bar Harbor. Tom took care of us from the moment we arrived, until our last morning breakfast. He and his staff were very welcoming and did everything to make our short, two night stay enjoyable. Our room was clean, quiet and cozy. The inn is full of old world charm... More

What a great B&B. We went to Bar Harbor to do some hiking and sightseeing. The location is perfect if you want a very short walk into the village center. Tom the Innkeeper is a wealth of information. He gave us some great ideas for hiking and how to catch the Acadia bus (which is free). We ate dinner at... More

We were very pleased with our stay. Tom made us feel at home and served delicious breakfasts. The dinner menu was delicious. I recommend dining here. The rooms were quirky and cozy. The location was central to downtown and we never needed our car to get around.

For a wonderful price in the height of the summer in Bar Harbor, we had a perfectly sized room for two people, with a bathroom that was a decent size for being a bed and breakfast. The owner couldn't have been any nicer, and the breakfast (included in the price) was possibly the best continental breakfast I've ever had. You... More

Stayed in Room #1 during a 3-day stay in Bar Harbor and couldn't have been happier with the place. Tom is a friendly and gracious host who loves to share stories and information. The staff at the inn were just the nicest people you could ever meet. The food was delicious and filling. Would love to go back every year... More

This is a rather unique place. I went during 4th of July and it was extremely affordable. The room was extremely clean and was really quiet. I am a light sleeper and even with a musician playing at the Pub part of this I never heard a thing. This probably wouldn't be very accommodating for large families as it is... More

A group of us stayed at the Black Friar Inn recently to celebrate a friends birthday. It was a wonderful location in the heart of Bar Harbour. The location is great, just off the really busy area, but still in the downtown with a Hannaford grocery store across the street behind us (Cottage St), along which you will find many... More

We made reservations for this place. It was a late dinner but worth the wait. The chef is amazing and uses fresh ingredients to create amazing dishes. Always order the specials. The blueberry butter for the rolls was enough to bring me back. The prices were inexpensive for the food you get. Wonderful place.

We went to Bar Harbor for our 25th Wedding anniversary, last full week in June. From a recommendation of another friend we stayed at the Black Friar Inn. It's located in a perfect spot, you can walk anywhere in town within minutes, yet you are off the "beaten" path so you don't hear so many people. Tom and staff are... More

We had a fantastic stay. The location is great, the interior is done with so much heart and ideas and the staff is friendly and welcoming. It is the perfect place for a stay in Bar Harbor. The only thing that could make the inn better would be an outside area for breakfast and dinner or beers.
