We spent 3 nights here over Memorial Day weekend. I loved the location - in town, but just far enough to still be quiet. They had enough parking for all cars and an impressive DVD collection (though we didn't watch any). The house is quite pretty. Our room, the Eyebrow room, was awesome. It had a sitting room where someone... More

The only reason I did not give The Castlemaine 5 stars is because the Wifi was not great. We stayed in the Eyebrow Suite (EB) on the top floor. It had two large and lovely rooms, including a sitting room with a small dorm sized refrigerator, a desk, a loveseat and an adorable eyebrow window and a large bedroom with... More

Right in town, but on a quiet side street. Our room, "suite finis" was spacious, with windows on 2 walls, a little porch, and a bathroom with a shower, bathtub, and a huge jacuzzi. The convenience of the included breakfast is much appreciated in Bar Harbor, where you risk spending half the morning waiting in line.

Very Nice in central to everything in Bar Harbor. Made me dinner reservations as soon as I checked in which was appreciated. Room very comfortable and clean. Inn is on a very quite block right next to a Hannaford store in case you need to do any grocery shopping. Food was very good all 3 mornings & had good selections... More

We have been staying at Castlemaine Inn for many years during our annual visit to Bar Harbor. Aside from the fact that is is extremely convenient (within walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor which means no hunting for parking places when going shopping, dinning , or just exploring) the Inn is the perfect place for us. It is very low... More

Great location, spacious rooms and good food. Very helpful staff. Their breakfast was good, and served until 10 am. Plenty of movies to choose from on a boring night and lots of brochures to help your stay in the area. THe Victorian wall paper was a bit much, but if that's all I can complain about, its worth your stay.

The advertising for this bed and breakfast in Bar Harbor was very misleading. It said city view, but the house was surrounded by trees which obstructed any view. The former ambassador's summer home was very run down, with shabby furnishings and a mini-TV in a cupboard. The hot breakfast was minimal. The owner, Dan, gave helpful advice on things to... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Nice people, wonderful breakfast that was simple and just the right amount. At breakfast we had a choice of two hot cooked to order meals that were FANATISTIC!!! Rooms were very clean. A better TV in the room would be a great improvement. Some updating is needed, but with that said, the Inn is just... More

for a long weekend getaway, this was a wonderful place. Dan (the owner) and Bobbie (his assistant) were very friendly and accommodating. We had a King Superior room and it was more than enough. Very large room and huge bathroom with bathtub/shower and also a jacuzzi tub, and double sinks. It was on the 1st floor which was perfect -... More
