Shore Path Cottage was a wonderful place to stay! We were in town for July 4th festivities, but only were able to stay the evening of July 3 due to availability, though would have loved to stay the 4th as well. The B&B is very well kept, and though you can tell it's age by it's features, (it seems to... More

We recently stayed at the Shore Path Cottage..... I cannot think of any place I have stayed in recent years more peaceful, welcoming and graceful. Our room was perfectly clean and comfy and breakfast in the morning absolutely delicious. I just wish I had stayed longer but I will absolutely be back !!!

We were on a long trip to Canada and wanted to break it up with a stay in Bar Harbor. We were towing a small boat so needed a nice place to stay where we could park the car and boat off-road and securely. The circular drive made this very easy! The cottage is very pleasant and handy for the... More

We had a really nice time at Shore Path Cottage. Warm and friendly reception. Lisabeth were so welcoming, just as if we were part of family. Breakfast was delicious! The location was excellent, close to everything. Amazing view of the beach! Highly recommended!

During our 6 weeks in USA/Canada we stayed in 14 Bed and Breakfast properties. This property is highly recommended. The word to describe it is 'homely' and this is appropriate as it has been the family home for more than 40 years. We were given Bob's room which at first we thought to be very basic although the bathroom had... More

We had a delightful, restful time at Shore Path Cottage B&B. We were greeted and welcomed with such kindness. Wine in the evening overlooking the bay was so peaceful. Breakfasts were delicious including amazing homemade baked goods. Our bed was so comfortable. Acadia sunrise, sunsets and hikes were remarkable. It was a short walk on a path to a charming... More

My husband and I stayed here as our get - away for our 10th Anniversary. I'll start by saying how lovely the Owner's warm and friendly reception was; she brought us sweet ice tea and chatted while we waited for the room to be ready. The rooms were very clean, larger than they looked in the pictures, and comfortable. The... More

Absolutely loved everything about this B&B. Location is great...an easy walk down the shore path to town. The hosts have been living in this home since the 1970's and it really does feel very comfortable and homey. We actually stayed in a very large suite in a cottage that was connected to the main house and could actually accommodate about... More
