We enjoy staying at B&Bs. The Holbrook House sits at the top or our list of those we have visited in Bar Harbor. It is important to us that the beds are comfortable and towels are thick. But the most important factor is the atmosphere. The innkeepers set the tone for this atmosphere. Michelle and Eric rise above the best of our previous experiences. From the moment we arrived to our departure we felt right at home. Their friendly and helpful attitude created a feeling among the guests that they were part of an extended family.
Check-in was a breeze. Our room, Blue Ribbon, was well appointed and very clean. As I said before, the bed was very comfortable and the thick towels were a pleasure to use. What sets this B&B apart from others we have stayed at in Bar Harbor was the inviting public spaces. The breakfast room was bright and airy. There were two additional public rooms inside. The seating arrangement in each room lent itself socialization among the guests. The full length front porch had several seating areas where we also were able to sit and swap stories with the other people staying there. The breakfasts were delicious with fruit appetizers and tasty entrees. Coffee and tea were available all day with homemade baked goods in the afternoon.
Michelle and Eric have taken an existing B&B and put their own touches on it to create an inviting and comfortable vacation respite. We plan on returning to the Holbrook House next year on our annual trip to Bar Harbor.
