5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2004

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at this B&B and had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was very friendly and conversational as were the other guests. Barry and Susan were splendid hosts who always had great advice on restaurants or activities. The breakfasts were varied and really tasty.

My wife and I have stay here a number of times over the years since Susan and Barry opened the inn. It is the best B&B we have stayed at anywhere in the country, and we have stayed at quite a number. The facility is in excellent condition and kept that way by Susan and Barry and yet it is inviting, warm, and comfortable. The inn is conveniently located in "downtown" Bar Harbor, so it's a short walk to several good restaurants and outdoors stores. Several of the park entrances are just a few minutes away by car. Susan and Barry set a good breakfast table and are most helpful in making reservations and recommending the best restaurants, the best outdoors expeditions, etc. They attract interesting guests, so breakfast conversation is lively. We have sent friends from different parts of the world here, and all of them loved it and thought it was a special place. We agree.

I have stayed here several times over last 10 years. I just check out the reviews here and I know that it seems unbelievable that one place can be consistantly excellent. BELIEVE IT. This is the best place to stay. The place is beautiful and comfortable. I can't say enough about Susan and Barry! It's like going to a close relatives house and them telling you the in's and out's of the town. They'll arrange reservations at the best restaurants in town and see to it you are happy.

I remember our first time there. It was our honeymoon and on our last night they got us a bottle of Champaign on a Silver Platter with a congratulations note!

If you can't get the same room in a row - don't let it bother you - just get there and they will move your bags. Tell Barry and Susan that Marc and Lisa from NYC miss them!

The Hearthside is a beautiful bed and breakfast, the food is incredibly delicious, the hosts are very knowledgable and helpful, and we had a great time. It is centrally located in Bar Harbor, and combines an "at-home" feeling with delightful pampering, including late afternoon homemade cookies and beverages. We look forward to staying there again.
