We stayed at the Holbrook House in Bar Harbor for 4 nights. We really had a wonderful time. The place was very comfortable. The owners Michelle and Eric were wonderful hosts. The room was very nice with an air conditioner in the window which we did not need. The bed was very comfortable and we had a dresser and closet... More

My husband and I had such a wonderful time during our first visit to Maine. We were there to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and staying at this bed and breakfast was such a delightful treat. Eric served us such scrumptious breakfasts every day, each one different and amazing from start to finish. We stayed in one of his newer... More

Great place, close in to everything. Acadia Nat. Park is one way, shops/restaurants the other way, either is very close. The room was neat, clean. The breakfast was gourmet quality both mornings of our stay. Eric was exceptionally nice and very helpful with locations and directions. I'd stay here on my next trip for sure.

We very much enjoyed the Holbrook House for our 2 night stay in Bar Harbor. I agree with all the reviews, the owners are very friendly and their additional helpfulness with where to go in Acadia was great. The bed was super comfortable, I have to have a King bed, and the sheets were perfect. The room was updated compared... More

My wife and I stayed at Holbrook House last week while visiting Acadia National Park. The Buttercup Room was nice. The breakfast each morning was AMAZING! I'm not usually a breakfast person and I looked forward to breakfast every day after the very tasty egg roulade on our first morning.

14 years ago we enjoyed a cozy, comfortable stay at this wonderful inn which is on the main road into town. If the street parking in front is full, there is parking in the back. The new owners have kept up the standard with clean rooms, pleasant public spaces and great breakfasts. Great downtime in busy Bar Harbor.

Other reviews tell you how great this place is to stay, and they're true. I would like to highlight the kindness of the innkeepers, Eric and Michele. Our final day, we left for the airport at 4:30am. Eric packed a breakfast for us, with Michele's amazing blueberry muffins and some yogurt and granola. When we got home, I realized that... More

Wonderful accommodations, outstanding fresh made breakfasts, warm and friendly innkeepers, just perfect! Rooms are clean, well decorated, and the bed was comfortable and the sheets were soft. Every breakfast was uniquely different, but my favorite was the strawberry and cream stuffed French toast. In the afternoon, homemade cookies and sweet cakes are set out in the sun room/dining room. It's... More

Very nice property, we stayed in the Lupine 2 room cabin behind the house and it was very nice, quiet with it's own patio area. The breakfasts were wonderful and the owner was funny and helpful. The rocking chairs out front were a wonderful place to enjoy a book and they also had a large sitting room in the main... More
