We stayed in the Garden Room, which is this small, but absolutely adorable room on the second floor of the house. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous (pretty much exactly what you'd think of if you imagined a B&B in Maine) and impeccably decorated. There is a very welcoming sitting/eating area downstairs, where Michelle will put out delicious baked treats... More

Fantastic B &B. Stayed in the Fiddlhead Room ans it was absolutely charming. It is obvious that the owners Eric and Michelle pay exceptional attention to detail. The room was immaculate and the furnishings and styling made for a perfect stay. As with much of Maine small inns and B&Bs dominate relegating the chain establishments to the outskirts of town...

We spent a delightful three days and two nights staying at Holbrook House while visiting Acadia. We were greeted by Eric and given a tour of the house. We had a very comfortable room on the second floor. Breakfast both mornings was delicious. We were so full that we did not eat lunch. In late afternoon Eric puts out cookies... More

We stayed there for a week from late June to July 6. A perfect location, easy to walk to town or drive to Acadia National Park. We stayed in the Lafayette room which is so comfortable and a perfect size. The hosts, Michelle and Eric, are wonderful. Michelle is a fantastic cook and Eric makes sure you have what you... More

From the minute we arrived, we knew this was going to be a wonderful stay. We were welcomed with delicious brown sugar peach muffin, lemon squares, and cookies baked by Michelle. Check in was instantaneous yet Eric took time to carefully explain all the worthwhile places to visit in and around Bar Harbor, and answer our questions about where to... More

The Holbrook House was just delightful! Eric & Michelle are perfect host! They served the BEST breakfasts everyday - so delicious! We looked forward to what would be served the next morning. We stayed in the Layfette suite - it was wonderful with a private entrance and patio. It also had a little sitting room where my husband could get... More

In early June, we spent 3 nights at the Holbrook House in Bar Harbor, Maine. It was fabulous. The location is nice in that we never had to get back in our car after we came home from exploring Acadia every day. We could walk everywhere in town, and we did! The breakfasts were excellent. Still can't get the grilled... More

We very much enjoyed our stay. Breakfasts were wonderful, with a lovely fruit first course followed by hearty, tasty fare in a pleasant, porch-like room. Home-made snacks were available in the afternoon, and the common area was stocked with books and games for rainy afternoons. Our room featured a comfortable bed with a beautiful quilt. The windows opened, so we... More

Our stay at the Holbrook House was an awesome experience! The accommodations were great, breakfast was excellent, and the evening refreshments (homemade baked goods) were delicious and a welcoming site upon returning from a long day of exploring. Eric was very personable and was very helpful in giving tips on things to do around town. I chose this property online... More

Stayed at the Robin's Nest room from 14 to 17 June. We love the classic decorations in the room. The bed is comfortable. The room faces the main street and sometimes there is traffic noise. But it is not serious and didn't affect our sleep. The host Eric and Michelle are helpful and they make wonderful breakfast. We also love... More
