It was so much more than the... More

The owners of this Inn are very gracioius, hard working, helpful and available. We had a fantastic visit and have absolutely nothing to "complain" about. We would go back often if we didn't live so far away!

The Primrose Inn was in walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor and of course the Atlantic Ocean. They had wonderful breakfasts. Afternoon teas were free. They offered free bottled water and sodas. You will enjoy this beautiful Victorian inn.

An impeccably kept-up house, the Primrose Inn is simply the best B&B we've ever stayed at. The location is excellent, the breakfast's are gourmet and they have literally thought of everything ... all the way down to GPS units to help you find those hard-to-find sites and restaurants. If you can stay here, do so. I don't know why you'd... More
