“Exclusive and wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Moseley Cottage Inn was so much more than we expected. Our room; was the best and nicest we ever had! We had the Norumbega Room wich is very spacious and luxury (3 or 4 persons).The breakfast is sublime and the owners very friendly. Moseley Cottage Inn is situated in a quiet street near all the shops and restaurants from Bar Harbor. Also the outside from the Inn is lovely to see.

Room Tip: We liked the Norumbega Room

We stayed at Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel the first week of August, 2014 and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Motel portion of the Inn. It was immaculate, quiet, comfortable and well appointed. It is only about a half block from Main Street and very close to downtown Bar Harbor and its many shops, restaurants and the Island shuttle...and yet very quiet. Pam and Scott are wonderful hosts and Elaine, a member of the housekeeping staff was very diligent about the cleanliness of the room as well as being very friendly. All in all it was a great experience. As a frequent traveler I can highly recommend the Moseley Inn and won't hesitate to stay there again the next time we are in Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: There are only 10 rooms in the motel and 8 in the Inn. I suspect that every one is as nice as the o...

We stayed in the Bee Hive room on the 3rd. floor of Mosely Cottage and had a wonderful experience. The room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable; the victorian decor was attractive; and the facility was extremely well maintained. We were able to retreat at night after mingling with the peak-season crowds in Bar Harbor. The breakfast was outstanding an unexpected treat (the blueberry scones were to die for). We also appreciated the coffee and pastries in the lobby. The Cottage is only a short walk from the restaurants ahd shops. We plan to return in the next year.

Room Tip: Jordan Pond on the second floor has a balcony. Bee Hive Room on the third floor is quiet and spacio...

Moseley Cottage is a wonderful treat in the midst of Bar Harbor. The staff are exceptional. The beds are the most comfortable I've found in a motel! We got great recommendations for an EARLY (6am) breakfast. And all within walking distance.....

I stayed here with my daughter as a graduation present a week or so before she went off to college. It was a perfect trip and the Town Motel was great! We both really enjoyed it.

Nice, very clean room with eat service right on the edge of town, walkable from all of Bar Harbor but not right in the middle of the tourist crowds. The owner, Pam was very nice and helpful in giving us the low down on all the things to do, restaurants, etc.

I was concerned when I booked because it is a "Motel", and it was much more affordable than the other rooms I was able to find, but I was not at all disappointed!

I normally don't write reviews but we had such a great time at the Moseley cottage I had to write one. Pam and Scott were great hostess and host, we felt so welcomed. The room was clean and comfortable and all attractions in town were within walking distances. We miss it so much we are already making plans to go back. Thanks again Pam and Scott!
