This was the first time I have stayed at a B&B so I was curious about how the experience would be. Right from from the moment we set foot in Matt & Kristi's B&B we were so pleasantly surprised by their hospitality and genuine desire to make us feel welcomed. Apart from the great company and delicious breakfasts they gave us some awesome local tips on how to make the most of our time exploring Acadia. Awesome experience all round, would love to stay again!

Our visit to Bar Harbor and our stay at the Saltair B&B was GREAT ! Matt & Kristi were wonderful host's , we stayed in the Bee Hive Suite , a large suite on the top floor and from the bed you have a great view of the harbor which is right at the end of the back yard ! the room had really nice furnishings , and it had a fully updated bathroom with a heated tile floor, so nice to have a warm floor in the bathroom ! the queen size bed was so comfortable and soft , we almost didn't want to get up , but Kristi's breakfast's quickly made getting up, well worth while ! each breakfast was better than the day before. The Inn is located within easy walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor and all the shops and restaurant's there is on premises parking which is nice , because Bar Harbor has metered parking , even in the residential areas , just leave your car there and walk , we were greeted by Kristi upon our arrival and made to feel very welcomed , all in all it was a really relaxing stay with wonderful people , so glad we found this place ! d&c hansen, Lincoln, Nebraska

This is a wonderful B & B. The rooms, breakfast and location are all perfect for a trip to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Matt and Kristi are great hosts and had lots of advice and guidance for us as we were first time visitors to the area. A short walk to downtown Bar Harbor and easy access into Acadia N.P.

So in starting this review, I looked at the "average" ratings to see what the heck anyone could be writing about. Well those comments are years old and they drew a chuckle as I could imagine some of the experiences but matching them to ours was laughable. Pay attention to the more recent reviews; they often articulate aspects of the inn better than I could. Large, comfortable room with nice linens, sitting area, modern bath and bay view: check. Beautiful breakfast, good coffee and options for seating and menu choices: check. Innkeepers who I would hope to be friends with if we lived in BH? Check. Walkable location so that we didn't drive a car for 3 days: check. Perhaps the under-reported feature of the inn is the lawn and chairs. Undoubtedly my favorite time was watching the tide rise or fall while the sun sets to the left and the water turns bluer while thinking about where to walk for dinner. Just a word or two more: Matt perhaps saved my butt (and perhaps our marriage!) with advice about trails, directions, etc. And Kristi prepared us for the climb on bikes to the carriage trails via Duck Brook Road. Listen to them. The only disappointment was seeing Juno but once.

Our stay at Salt Air Inn was fantastic! The Inn has so much character and is ideally located on the waterfront as well as within walking distance to shops and restaurants in Bar Harbor. The room (Chart Room) was clean and comfortable. It had it's own private hallway so it was very quiet. Matt and Kristi were fabulous hosts providing lots of information and suggestions on places to eat, things to do, hikes to take. We ended up watching seals feeding on fish at one spot Matt recommended. The breakfasts were AMAZING! Kristi is very skilled in the kitchen and each day was something different and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Salt Air and Bar Harbor/Acadia and we can't wait to return!
