From the gingerbread waffles to the strawberry-baked French toast, to the triple chocolate cookies at tea time -- you'll find yourself hiking more so you won't feel so guilty at the table. The rooms are perfectly appointed with heavenly beds, fireplaces, sitting areas and private porches. Assigned parking, fresh flowers, absolutely spotless: this was the perfect inn. They even provide... More

My wife and l spent 6 wonderful days in Bar Harbor and Acadia National park staying at the primrose inn. We stayed at a bed and breakfast for the first time and could not have been more pleased. The breakfast had 2 choices of hot items plus cereals and baked goods. Afternoon tea and sweets were available after 4:00. Our... More

The Inn was perfect for our purposes. The room was spacious and well maintained. The staff was very friendly. It was well-located and well-supplied with books and DVDs. Very nice breakfasts. The common living room was a little small and could be more nicely furnished, but it did not detract at all from our stay. Would definitely recommend.

We loved staying here for 2 nights for our visit to Acadia and Bar Harbor. It is a very easy short walk to town and to the sand bar. Melissa, the owner/operator, was nice to visit with during the mornings - she was very friendly but not overbearing at all. She grew up basically across the street. If you are... More

The inn is nice. I believe it is owned by people who do not live on site. While the people who work there are very nice, you can tell that they work there instead of live and breathe the place. This makes for an interesting inn experience - almost a little more hotel like. The room was comfortable. The porches... More

Warm welcome and lovely room for our stay in Bar Harbor. Great home made breakfast and cakes supplemented by access to coffee, soft drinks etc. Really well run B&B with easy walk to the town. We had a small problem which was dealt with politely and efficiently. Def recommend.

Excellent facility at a reasonable rate. Someone is paying attention to the details. Would highly recommend. Our experience was with room 8 with a private entrance. Breakfast was delicious and staff was gracious.

My sole purpose in writing this review is to add yet another 5 star rating to the Primrose Inn. This was our second stay, but the first since Melissa bought the Inn. I did not think the Inn experience could be improved upon, but I was wrong. The current owner and her staff were top notch and easily continue the... More

My wife and I prefer B&Bs when we travel, so we've stayed in quite a few. This inn is easily one of the best ever. We were greeted upon arrival and shown such extras as complimentary GPS available with pre-loaded destinations, a great CD that really added to our Acadia National Park visit, afternoon tea and treats, lots of good...

My wife and I tried to come up with anything we would change about our stay, any small nit picky things that we could. Maybe if there was an iron in the room? We couldn't come up with anything. This place is fairly well as perfect as accommodations come. Some others have commented on things being creaky or sounds being... More
