When I read others’ reviews that this place was very clean, it convinced me to book a stay here. It is a hidden gem right in the quiet village of Northeast Harbor. Extremely clean and updated with all the conveniences you need, including fridge with freezer, microwave, toaster, dishes, glasses, coffee mugs, and silverware…everything to make you comfortable. Spacious suite on the second floor of the restaurant,but I never heard a sound from downstairs. The affordable price is misleading, as I thought I would get much less for my money than I did! This is a bargain and I will definitely stay here again!

The good: *the room was spacious and clean.  the sitting area was great.  the kitchenette was useful.  king size bed. *this was a convenient launching pad to hikes at Jordan Pond and the two gardens (highly recommend all).  We also did the Beech Cliffs trail (further west), so it was well positioned for that, too.  Not too much of a drive to Bar Harbor. The not-so-great: *we booked thru expedia, no mention of the 20 steps you need to climb with all your luggage to your room.  We had hiked Mt. Katahdin the day before, so those steps were rough. *the "parking" - which is on their website as "we offer parking for one car per suite" - is not actually true - it's street parking, so hit or miss.  We were there at the end of the season while a lot of stuff was closed, so we did not have any trouble, but I did specifically check out the parking before booking and felt mislead by this. *the breakfast that wasn't.  If you google this place you will see it comes up as a "bed and breakfast", and one of their website pages says it is a B&B.  there is a $15 fee per night per person when booking through expedia, which I stupidly assumed was for breakfast.  Not only is there no breakfast, there is nowhere to get breakfast, and no info in the room about what you might like to do regarding this.  If it had just been made clear beforehand, we could have brought breakfast.  For some reason, the bakery over which this is located doesn't open until 11 am, so that's not the answer either.  Also, what was the $15 per additional person per night charge for?? *hardly any restaurants are open here at the end of September, so you need to drive elsewhere for some variety.  We were able to walk to the Nor'Easter on the night it was open, but there was a pretty decent wait because not much else was open. Also, if you like to chat up the front desk, this place is not for you. We never spoke to a person. We got a text telling us the code to our room, which we were asked to acknowledge - it took us hours of trying to confirm in the park, as cell reception is terrible. At some point a receipt appeared under our door. We never spoke to anyone. That worked out fine, but that may not be your style. As you can see by the overall 4 star rating, the nice nature of the room and the comfy bed more than offset the less-great items.

The unit is very clean and the bed and sofa bed are very comfortable. Whole unit looks like new. It is walking distance to marina and short drive to Arcadia National Park. Downstairs is bakery and restaurant. We ordered twice from the restaurant and the food was quite good indeed. The owner responded our questions timely. I only gave 4 stars because at night, when everybody uses internet, it got very slow. Next morning it was back to normal again.

Our suite was super clean, roomy and very comfortable. Towels were thick and plush. And there is a restaurant and bakery right downstairs. Talk about convenient! Cute, quiet main street and short walk to pretty marina. Convenient drive to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.

We were on a 7-state road trip across New England and this was one of our home base rooms for our visit in Maine. We got lost as we didn't know the difference between Bar Harbor and NE Harbor but after a quick call to the owner, we were on the road and there in no time. We were so glad because Bar Harbor was so crowded and busy with so much going on. The secluded area was just ideal. There are various rooms at these suites. Our room was nothing like the pictures above but it was perfectly adequate for us. Would have been nice to have one with a sink by the coffee service. We had a small sitting area with a coffee service and refrigerator and tv and then another tv in the bedroom area but we had a lot of trouble figuring out how to use the tv. Very confusing for us. We had adequate towels and amenities but the bed and pillows we had were extremely hard. Maybe others would find it okay but it was too much for us. This was a good home base for 3 nights. The owner was very communicative and very helpful since we arrived late. It was confusing because we picked up our key from the bakery downstairs and we had to carry our luggage up a long flight of stairs. The best part about this place is the restaurant below. We were given tickets for a set breakfast the mornings we were there except for the last one since the restaurant was closing down for the winter season and only open at lunch. Good thing we weren't staying longer. It was a perk to have this choice since the town seems to shut down and there wasn't a lot available to chose from when we arrived back after our long days of exploring. We never spent much time in the town so we can't offer up suggestions but we did pick up rolls and donuts at the bakery for the next morning to begin our long drive. There is a laundry service available for guests and they have a very set cleaning time available if you want to take advantage of it. We did one day but there wasn't the typical service you would expect including making beds, etc. Maybe just the addition of a towel or two. We id leave a note to get more coffee for the following morning. We opted out of the service the next two days.

Breakfast is Served to all guests till 11:00 Not a B&B Breakfast Not a Buffet Breakfast A Full Breakfast menu with your choice of anything Every Day Close to all parts of Acadia Park...highly recommend the Carriage trails on foot or Bike. The room is Quite spacious and even has Air conditioning...never needed it. Kept the windows open and it was delightful. Kitchenette is nicely equipped If you want Action Bar Harbor is 10 minutes away...if you want Lobsters you must try Beals in Southwest Harbor 15 minutes away The staff are helpful...Great Breakfast and great restaurant....and they have a Bar

Our family stayed here for one night prior to going to Bar Harbor, ME for the remainder of our vacation. We found the hotel to be really nice and comfortable which was located above the Colone's bakery and restaurant. The hotel has only 5 suites to book. We booked a 1 king bedroom suite with a separate living room area with pull out sofa bed. This was comfortable for us. The room was also very clean as well. The room had a small refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker and sink. The bathroom was really nice as well with a beautiful dresser at the mirror with a sink. There were an ample supply of free soaps, lotions, shampoo that were provided as well. Shower pressure was really good as well. There is free-wifi but you need the password to access it. There is a book in each room with important information for your stay. There is even a book int he room where you can write your impressions and comments about your stay as well. We of course left some nice comments about our stay here. Guests are provided complimentary tickets for breakfast in the morning at the Colonel's restaurant downstairs. We needed some additional blankets and pillows the owner of the hotel and restaurant hand delivered them to us. It was wonderful service which we appreciated. As a FYI, guests check into the hotel at the bakery downstairs. There is a separate flight of stairs to the second floor where the 5 suites are located. There is street parking in front of the restaurant but it is limited to 2 hours during busy months of July and August where you could get a parking ticket of $ 20 if parked for longer than 2 hours. There is a parking lot behind the hotel where I recommend you park int he summer months of July and August to avoid being ticketed. Downtown Northeast Harbor is small with several shops and restaurants and limited parking. We enjoyed our stay here and would visit again. I definitely recommend this hotel.

It's hard to describe - perhaps a blanket of minor details - but this unit gave the impression of semi-rustic luxury. In room frig & microwave, reasonably-priced washer & dryer in hall, separate bedroom, quality linens. Given the typical destination accommodation prices, the cost was very reasonable. It includes breakfast, which is pedestrian, but much better than the usual coffee & donuts. I have some handicaps & negotiating the 15 - 20 stairs to climb to the 2nd floor posed a minor challenge, but worth it in terms of the delightful accommodations.

A real home away from home, located on the Main in Northeast Harbor. We stayed two nights in what is a very off-season mid-April. There are six spacious suites, and we had the place more or less to ourselves. Clean accommodation, comfortable furniture, and a warm welcome. The only item missing was a toaster. I wish that the bakery had been open for breakfast (nearest open restaurant was in Bar Harbor), but, as I said, we visited at a very quiet time of year.

Didn't expect it. Suites at the top bakery\restaurant at the bottom. I have never had to check-in at a bakery. Suites were spacious, updated and very comfortable with all amenities. Offered free breakfast which I have to say was excellent. The owners were very attentive and responsive. Very close (approx. 15 min - in Acadia that is close) to all that Acadia has to offer.
