We have been turned off by big chain Hotels and usually stay in B&B's, or smaller Hotels. After researching on Trip Advisor, The Quimby House fit our needs. We were fortunate and our room was located downstairs at the rear of the hotel and away from the street so it was nice and quite. The room was adequate and clean... More

Absolutely loved staying here! We were close to everything, walking distance from the harbor and shops and loved the staff. Everyone was very helpful, it was very clean and the room was great! What a great stay!

Pluses are the rate as well as the location. You can easily walk anywhere downtown or access Acadia pretty easily whether by car or bicycle. Yes it is a bit dated, but if you want the modern furnishings and creature comforts choose another place and pay double. Our room for our recent visit had a very comfortable king mattress and...

Normally, we stay at huge chain-style hotel just outside of Bar Harbor proper. But late travel plans forced us to improvised. After a review of accommodations listed on TripAdivsor, we settled on Quimby House near Downtown Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor can be an expensive place to visit, and Quimby House is no exception. Our room was rather small and dated... More

The location of this inn is very good both for the town and driving into Acadia. There is parking out back, and while being on the street, it was very quiet. There is a grocery next door to pick up breakfast as Quimby doesn't provide it. They do have coffee in the lobby. The room (2 queens) was spacious but... More

The location was fine of this inn, however it was the worst place we stayed on our 2 week vacation. The room was in need of multiple repairs to walls, flooring and furniture, not clean and VERY outdated. There wasn't a way to close the curtains where the viewers on the outside could not see in on the door; curtains... More

Let me start with the positives: Located in a quiet corner of Bar Harbor, Quimby House is a nice respite from the tourist bustle. It is on the side of town closest to the Park, so a great launching point for excursions on bike or foot. Spa services were quite good. Negatives: Decor is tired. Or third floor room was... More

Great place , friendly ownership with wonderful advice. Super location and very comfortable. Would stay there again and have recommended Quimby House to friends. Go to Bar Harbor in June , it gets crowded July-August.

My husband and I came for a vacation we stayed at the Quimby for 5 nights. The price was great (especially over the 4th) location even better (the parade came down in front of the hotel). We were able to easily walk to the downtown area, shore path, grocery store for snacks, restaurants and our Kayak tour we took. Wonderful... More

Spent 3 nights at Quimby House Inn recently. We parked the car on the first day and didn't move it. We explored everything on foot. We are even took a trolley ride to Acadia Park. Inn was a comfortable place to get a quick rest or change of clothes. Staff very attentive. Quiet. Everything you need for a getaway.
