This was our 4th trip to Bar Harbor, and the 4th Inn we've stayed at. By far, it is our favorite. We stayed for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. Brian and Catherine make you feel like part of their family during your stay with fantastic breakfasts each morning, advice and tips at any time, and casual conversation and... More

You absolutely cannot go wrong staying at this B&B. It is immaculate and was built in the early 1900's by a Doctor I believe although you would never know it with the way the place looks. Gorgeous from the moment you walk in. We stayed in the Romeo Juliet room and it was magnificent...very spacious and the bedding is top... More

We stayed in the Emily Dickinson room - it was a good size for two, well maintained, and very clean. The bedding was high quality though the bed itself was a bit soft for my liking. Bathroom was very clean with a great shower. No TV but the free WIFI was good enough to stream Netflix. While we didn't need... More

We had a wonderful time in Bar Harbor and much of the credit goes to Brian. Being a local, he was able to tell us some of the best things to do while visiting Acadia National Park. He gave us a terrific driving guide that allowed us to see some areas that we likely would have missed. The B&B is... More

We stayed at the Hearthside B&B for three nights in the Emily Dickinson room. The hosts Brian and Catherine were so warm and friendly. Their home is beautiful, with a spacious and cozy living room. Our favorite feature was the outdoor patio—we ate breakfast out there every day and enjoyed a bottle of wine under the twinkle lights at night.... More

From the orientation to the offer of beach towels, binoculars, and drawing maps to get you to the best sightseeing locations, Brian and Catherine offer a B&B with a heart. We stayed eight nights in the Winston Churchill room which featured a king size bed, a private porch, and a real fireplace with wood to burn on chilly nights. I... More

Charming cottage beautifully decorated. The bedroom roomy but feels cozy with snowy white bed spreads and towels. The spotless bathroom looks new and retro at the same time.

Our terrific experience this past weekend in Bar Harbor, ME was in great part because of the hospitality provided by the Hearthside owners, Brian and Catherine. They were the most wonderful, accommodating and knowledgable hosts we've encountered in all the B&Bs we've ever stayed in. I wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Hearthside!
