My husband and I stayed here on a Friday night. We initially were checking out some of the bigger hotels but it was so costly, which is usually the case this time if year in Bar Harbor. I happened to find this hotel while searching through trip advisor and I am so glad I did. What a hidden gem! Placed... More

This will be my family's first stay at the Moseley Cottage Inn - and everything has been perfect so far! The owners are very friendly and have two lovable dogs, although there are a limited number of rooms, each is well kept! The front garden area is gorgeous and offers a nice place to relax in one of the chairs... More

Okay, let me start by saying that my wife and I have been to a lot of different east coast small Inns and B & Bs so we have a lot of perspective on this matter. This review is for the main house. First the positive: The property is as good as it gets relative to downtown Bar Harbour -... More

You don't always know what you're going to get when you find a place online. The Moseley Inn beat all my expectations. Very comfortable B&b conveniently located in downtown Bar Harbor. The Bubbles room fit our family of 4 with room to spare. Breakfast was served daily with friendly service that made us feel right at home - or better!... More

Moseley Cottage, built in 1884, was once a Victorian summer house. It is on a quiet side street just off Main Street, within easy walking distance to shops, museums, restaurants, and the Shore Path. My room was immaculate and comfortable, as was the bath. I appreciated the mint rosemary soaps and lotions, and the thick, plentiful towels. The house has... More

If real estate is location, location, location, so is a B & B in a crowded resort town. Park your car in the ample free lot and walk everywhere or take the free shuttle bus provided by the town. The innkeeper are pleasant and helpful and the breakfast is outstanding. Be in good shape if you take a room on... More

Mosley Cottage is beautifully appointed, maintained and conveniently located (easy walking from shops restraints and the waterfront). Definitely worth the splurge for our high season stay. The reception was lovely and helpful, all the staff friendly and gracious. The Inn maintained and run beautifully. They keep coffee, tea and fresh baked treats stocked at the entrance. Our room was immaculately... More

My wife and I stayed at the Moseley Cottage Inn June 18-20th. We stayed in the Strath Eden room, room #9. The room was perfect for us and provided a welcoming level of comfort each night we returned from long days of sightseeing. We have nothing to say negative about the room, the historic home, the parking, etc... The Cottage... More
