This was a beautiful Inn that was spotlessly clean everywhere. The room was beautiful and the bed was super comfortable. The assistant Inn keeper could not be more helpful. Every evening there was a limitless wine and cheese table set out. The "guest pantry" was always stocked with coffee, tea, soda and fresh cookies. The common areas were so cozy.... More

My husband and I stayed here last summer, and I didn't even bother seriously considering any other hotels or B&Bs when I started planning our trip to Bar Harbor for this summer; you just can't beat this place.

The location is perfect, right off Main St, but feels secluded. The Inn is as beautiful as all the photos! Happy Hour every evening with lovely hors d'oeuvres.
