Cleftstone Manor is a splendid home. The common areas are wonderful. The social hour appetizers were below the standards of other B&B's we have stayed at. The breakfast was superior . Just do not use the log supplied by the innkeeper in the fireplace, especially in the James Blaine room. From 8pm until 2 am we battled smoke as it... More

First time staying at a B&B and did not regret it. Old house, lots of character and very quaint. This place is known for the delicious breakfast prepared by the owner/manager Anne and I preferred the savory dishes. Everything is made fresh in the morning and unlike the typical buffet breakfast at chain hotels, this is actually a bit formal... More

The Cleftstone has all the right touches for a nice country B&B. It's proximity to Acadia Park and Bar Harbor village make its location ideal. The innkeepers were very accommodating, friendly and helpful. Our room ... the Waldron Bates ... was a lovely collection of four spaces woven into a nice suite. Located on the third floor with it own... More

FYI - HIGHWAY 3 the main artery into Bar Harbor changes names to Eden Street directly below the 3rd Floor John Clark private balcony. The Highway NOISE is not an issue inside the property. We intentionally paid a $40 per night premium to enjoy an evening glass of wine on our private balcony with a "peek of the bay (per... More

I stayed two nights and rested well. The breakfast were excellent and service good. I caution that a "private bath" does not mean en suite, so you may be walking down a halfway. What I found lacking was any special touch or attention to detail. My bedspread was upside down so all the 'do not remove tags' were at the... More

The Cleftstone Manor was absolutely delightful. I had always been skeptical about the whole B&B thing, but if they were all like Cleftstone Manor, I think I would stay in them all the time! They were very accommodating, especially since we got in late, and were always there to try to make our trip better. The breakfast was incredible and... More

We were booked for four nights at the Cleftstone Manor in August. Due to a miscommunication, we missed the first night and we were charged for the first night for the full amount. It was our fault that we didn't check the reservation. The facility was well kept and offered use of the swimming pool at the Bluenose Inn next... More

When we were planning our first visit to Bar Harbor and searched for the perfect accommodations, all the great reviews about Cleftstone Manor stood out. We had to find out for ourselves if they are true. And they are!! Such a lovely, historic inn with a comfortable bed, out-of-this world breakfasts, and the social hour made our experience that much... More

Enjoyed two nights and two lovely breakfast here. Right off the highway but not in downtown. Proprietors were friendly and accommodating. We used the a/c for white noise and slept soundly. Fairly close to the park entrance and downtown. Parking is very tight downtown but easy here.

Anne does it right in her clean beautiful bed and breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff with comfortable, casual accommodations in a restored "cottage" that brings you back in time. Stay and enjoy a scrumptious breakfast.
