This Inn is absolutely wonderful. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. The entire place is spotless and the breakfast was out of this world. The bathroom had a spa tub and perfect amenities and the bed was very comfortable. The Primrose is very close to the center of town and all that Bar Harbor has to offer. It was a... More

Beautiful grounds and building. Meticulously maintained. Friendly and attentive staff. Great breakfast and afternoon snacks. Large clean rooms. Perfect location that's an easy walk to restaurants and shopping, a short drive to Arcadia park. All at a reasonable price. We were very happy with our stay and were sad to leave. We highly recommend Primrose Inn and will definitely be... More

Charming Victorian touches done in a modern, bright way! Excellent facilities and walking distance to the restaurants, shops, and park shuttles. Breakfasts were gourmet and delicious! (Though a simple scrambled egg type-option would be nice for those who prefer something more basic.) Really appreciated the thorough welcome tour that made clear all the amenities and where they are: books, DVDs,... More

This has to be one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. Rooms were comfortable, especially room 16, which has a large bathroom & private sitting room with TV. We stayed in room 8 for one night and although small, it was comfortable & clean. All staff were friendly & polite. Easy walk to town & quick drive to Acadia... More

Bed and Breakfast was wonderful...clean, comfortable, great breakfasts and gracious informative staff. The Bed and Breakfast even had an electric generator, when the power in the area went out due to a storm. Access to Acadia was close. It was an easy walk to "downtown" Bar Harbor.

This was our first stop on our travel though Maine. What a beautiful B&B with a fabulous breakfast and great location! We wished we had booked 2 nights here! Our room was very quiet, had a sitting room and absolutely spotless! The inn keepers were wonderful and most helpful. Breakfast had two wonderful hot options plus a cold buffet area.... More

We had originally planned on staying 2 nights but wanted to switch one of the days and add another one. Melissa, the owner, was very accommodating and was able to make the switch. Unfortunately, she was unable to add a night but gave us a list of some other places to stay. We stayed in 2 different rooms. For the... More

This Bed & Breakfast was wonderful. The rooms were just the right size, ours had a small sitting room which helped when my husband got up early. The owners of this Bed & Breakfast kept the character of this old house and updated it so you felt you were being pampered at a spa. The modern bathroom had a jacuzzi... More

After 7 nights on a cruise, it was a delight to stay at the Primrose Inn for a couple of nights before heading back to Colorado. Beautiful Victorian House with a welcoming staff. The owner is a wonderful hostess. The food was delicious. They accommodated our gluten-free diet. Water and snacks were available 24/7 with delicious baked goods in the... More

As a historic home owner, I enjoy staying at B&Bs, and I have stayed at many ... but my three nights at the Primrose were the best I have had anywhere in the US. We stayed in Room #1 - it is at the top of the stairs on the second floor, and it was spacious - when entering the... More
