We stayed there for 2 days and it couldn't have been better. Anne & Bob were very welcoming and we enjoyed the evening discussions in the sun room. We had a first floor room which was nice. Anne did a great job with my wife's dietary restrictions. Would definitely stay there again.

Cleftstone is an interesting historical B&B. It`s heavy on chintz and very Victorian, with interesting touches like late-19th century dresses and dolls displayed in corners. Our 9-year-old was slightly creeped out by the dummy holding a tray of mints on one of the landings. We had the Warden Bates suite on the top floor of the servants` wing, which suited... More

We would like to thank Anne, Bob, Coco, and the staff for a relaxing, highly enjoyable stay in Bar Harbor. The house is beautifully appointed, clean, and hospitable. Anne and Bob obviously care very much for the comfort and pleasure of their guests, spending ample time with each one during the breakfast (fabulous entrees), and social hours, where Anne chats...

This is a lovely, large, older house that has a variety of rooms. You can call the owners after looking at the web site to get more information to make sure the room chosen meets your need. Due to demand, we stayed a few nights in a smaller room and the last 2 days in the largest. The small room... More

We were there a while ago and I forgot to post this but the review is the same. We still tell people about the Manor and recommend it if they are headed to Bar Harbor. We insist they check it out first. We spent our time in the Cleftstone room, the most amazingly beautiful and comfortable room that was perfect... More

This is a reasonably priced B&B near Acadia (still somewhat pricey as is to be expected during the high season). Breakfast is excellent and prepares you for the Acadia day ahead. I would probably chose a B&B in town however if prices are competitive. Never met the innkeepers as far as I know as we arrived after hours on the... More

Wonderful, quaint, and warming B and B in a perfect location! We loved our room and enjoyed the little chocolates replenished daily. The breakfasts were unique and offered good choices for anyone's taste. Pumpkin waffles and Wild Maine Blueberry pancakes. House made yogurt and fresh bakery breads prior to your main course tasty as well. Appetizers in the evening were... More

Wonderful hosts. Gorgeous house. Close enough to walk downtown Bar Harbor. Loved the room with the fireplace especially after hiking at Acadia. Extras included indoor and outdoor swimming pools for afternoon relaxation. The breakfast is gourmet.

What a great time. Good hearty breakfasts each day got us ready for the hiking and biking we did. And Ann helped us out with some trail maps on the day we biked. We walked into town most days for lunch or dinner and took the shuttle bus back at night, which dropped us off right across the road from... More
