We booked the Primrose Inn for our 2 night stay in October 2015 based on the TripAdvisor certificate of excellence and the online reviews. We were not disappointed. We were welcomed by Maureen when we arrived and she was kind enough to let us have some of the left over cakes and cookies from the afternoon tea that day. She... More

We stayed here inlate June. It was busy. We had a tiny first floor room with its own porch. We tried to get a larger room but none available. The breakfast was delicious, but portion was on the small side. It was not served until 8am which was late for us. Eating on the porch was a nice touch sitting... More

Melissa and her staff insure an exceptional stay at the Primrose Inn. The Inn, itself, is immaculate and has great "character." The staff is most accommodating, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. The rooms are excellent and the food is delicious. I look forward to many more visits to Bar Harbor and the Primrose. Kudos to Melissa and her staff!!! Thank you... More

We were there for 2 nights. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable. There was always a snack of some kind (cookies, cake, muffins, cream puffs) available and hot coffee, tea and juice. Breakfast was delicious and served in a very relaxing dining room! The owners and other employees were so pleasant. It was an easy walk to the whole town.... More

Stayed two nights in October. Maureen, Sue and Melissa couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Might have mistaken them for being Southern bred but for strange accent!. Took advantage of the audio tour of Acadia park and the GPS pre-programmed for recommended restaurants and best route back to Primrose. This Inn deserves its high ratings. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

I loved our 5-night stay at Primrose. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the food was delicious and abundant, the location was convenient, and the hosts were very friendly. We stayed on the second floor in room 3, which was smallish, but very comfortable. Lots of restaurants were within walking distance, as well as a grocery store. We bought a... More

Oh my gawd; the baked goods, from scone to muffin to cookies to cake are all homemade and fabulous. They're at breakfast, along with savory treats such as quiches and bacon; they are at tea-time every day, AND they will make an appearance after dinner (if you ask nicely). The accommodations are nice with fireplaces, cozy beds. We actually stayed... More

The staff was excellent, the location was convenient, and the room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious and in the afternoon they offered a tea with great sweets. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast in the Bar Harbor area.
