“Location and service second to none”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

You couldn't ask for a better location than this inn. The staff was friendly, flexible, and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the view from the deck area was great. Unfortunately the bathroom was a crowded and dated. Overall this is a nice B&B that we would visit again.

My husband could not have picked a better place for our second honeymoon. We stayed in the private summer cottage - like our own little home. Very romantic with stone fireplace and overlooking the ocean. The Inn location is perfect, close enough to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, but far enough away from the noise. The entire place is beautiful and the hosts are very accommodating.

Room Tip: Summer Cottage - highest price of all the rooms but worth it.

Spent 2 nights here and could have easily stayed longer. The B&B is in the perfect location - near the sea, very quiet and has a lovely front porch. Jean's breakfasts are not only satisfying but also very inventive, the cheese and sun dried tomato souffle being my personal favourite. There are also tables for multiple couples so you can meet and chat with people from all over the US and further afield. Jack was always on hand at breakfast time to recommend things to do and places to eat (Stewmans and Thurstons being wonderful for lobster). You can also spend time with Pearl and Woody, the resident dogs who love everyone that will fuss them. A very relaxing, well run B&B that we would love to revisit at some point in the future.

The Inn at Bay Ledge was a splurge for us (more than our usual price range) but it was definitely worth it! Jack was very friendly and welcoming from the very beginning and all the staff were helpful and nice.

Breakfast was delicious. Tea and coffee always available and afternoon pastries. They have two mellow and friendly dogs (hypo-allergenic, so no worries there!). The room was very comfortable with pillow top bed, great shower, etc.There was a sauna across the hall hat I wish we had taken advantage of. Fabulous wooden staircase goes down the 80ft cliff to the beach, where there is a cave through the rock. At lower tides, which we missed, you could walk for a long ways along the cliffs.

Great spot - highly recommend!

I chose this inn when planning our trip to Acadia National Park. I did a lot of research (there are lots of places to stay here) , but ultimately chose this location. We really liked the location, which is a ways out of town. The town of Bar Harbor, approximately 3 miles away, is ok ( it's not Camden), but it is very, very busy. It is a cruise ship harbor as well as the gateway to Acadia National Park. That said, Bay Ledge is spectacular. Our upstairs room ( no elevator ) had the best view of our 9 day stay in New England. The room was great with sliding doors onto a balcony that overlooked Frenchman's Bay. The inn building itself is also beautiful, as well as the grounds. There is a large porch facing the bay with chaise lounges. Breakfast is also served outdoors, weather permitting. Otherwise, it is served inside a large dining area off of the front porch, with large windows so that the view is not missed. Jack and Jean are the innkeepers here and do a great job. Jack is friendly, wanting each guest to feel welcome. Jean is the cook ( a very good one, I might add). The warm pear tartlet on our second morning was my personal favorite. Another great feature here is accessibility to the National Park. The closest park entrance is only about a mile away.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms on the bay side have spectacular views.

My husband and I got the last room in the Inn Wednesday night, and am I glad we did! The atmosphere at the Inn at Bay Ledge is warm and inviting. Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bar Harbor, the Inn is a peaceful place to relax and enjoy solitude in Maine. The balcony off our room overlooked Frenchman Bay; it was a great place to read and relax before heading out for dinner. Jack and Jeani are delightful people whose enthusiasm for the hospitality business shows. They enjoy making their guests feel comfortable. Their recommendations for places to eat and things to see were spot-on. Be sure to count the steps leading to the water. You will get an incredible view.

a very nice place to base your vacation to Acadia National Park and surrounding area and with a great breakfast every day...lovely views from the decks and porch. Overlooking Frenchman's Bay, it is located high above the beach, but there are stairs which you can take down at low tide to walk for miles. Very quiet and peaceful with wonderful hosts.

Room Tip: rooms with your own deck are great!
