We knew that a week in Bar Harbor would be incredible and finding The Holland Inn only made it better! The Inn is located just a few minutes walk to the town center, the harbor, and the Island Explorer buses. A block from a supermarket, health food store, laundromat and the on site parking added to the convenience. We were lucky that the Beech Cliff (a large three room suite) was available. Our suite was beautiful, spacious, and very tastefully appointed. The housekeeping was impeccable and everything was spotless. The Holland Inn had every available amenity to enhance one's visit. Games, books, DVDs, coffee were available at all times. The breakfasts were mind blowing. Attention was paid to accommodate individual dietary requirements. The creativity of recipes and presentation of these healthy breakfasts was a great way to begin each day. Evin, the innkeeper, is a natural. Graciously checking us in after a later than expected arrival, she got us settled in on what would soon become one of the best vacations ever. She has a wealth of information, suggestions, pamphlets, maps to help her guests get the most out of the area. She was never too busy to stop and answer the most trivial of questions. Warm, friendly, funny, caring, Evin is truly a gem and obviously loves taking care of her guests. The Holland Inn, because of Evin, should be a model B&B for the Travel Channel and Evin's breakfasts should be on the Food Network. Our only regret was having to return the room keys when the week was up. Most highly recommended!!
