We decided to go to Bar Harbor for our honeymoon and found The Saltair Inn online with rave reviews and great pictures. The price was totally worth the accommodation, views, food, personable and kind hosts, and convenient walk to downtown Bar Harbor. It was the right combination of peace and quiet (which we wanted) with plenty to do downtown and... More

My wife and I have been patrons of the Saltair Inn for several years, always staying a week at a time in mid to late August. We return year after year because the location is the best of the B&Bs in Bar Harbor, the breakfasts are fabulous, and the hosts are consistently friendly, engaging and extremely well informed about activities...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Saltair Inn, including the pleasant company, the warm hospitality that you both provided, the delicious breakfasts, and friendly advice on places to visit. The views from our room and the garden were breathtaking. The only, I mean only slight problem I had was the AC fan was very load and could not be adjusted... More

We're both fairly seasoned B&B travelers, and we agree the Saltair Inn was our best experience yet. Matt and Kristie are wonderful hosts, the setting on the bay is amazing. The location of the inn relative to town is perfect... just a couple of blocks out, but in a relatively quiet spot. Our host's recommendations for day trips and excursions... More

We honeymooned in Bar Harbor and this was our first trip back. We would not change a thing. Kristi and Matt were outstanding hosts. Breakfasts were wonderful and they were very helpful with spot-on recommendations for things to do. The location is ideal with easy walking access to downtown, safe/reliable off-street parking, and low- tide access to the bar from... More

My wife & I absolutely loved our stay at Saltair Inn! Matt & Kristi are the most gracious, welcoming hosts. We stayed in the lovely Acadia suite and couldn't have asked for anything better. Breakfast was extraordinary on the back deck overlooking the water & Bar Island. We already can't wait to plan our next stay (longer this time) at... More

It was a beautiful location overlooking Frenchman Bay and right in the village. We so enjoyed morning coffee and breakfast on the deck (the breakfast meals were creative and exceptionally good!). The view of the bay is also exquisite. We spent most days exploring Acadia and surrounding areas and the inn keepers were extremely helpful with tips on what to... More

Our week at the Saltair Inn was one of our best B&B experiences ever. The house has a quiet waterfront setting very near the walkway to Bar Island, while being just a short stroll to the activities, stores and restaurants of Bar Harbor. There is plenty of private parking, which is a blessing so close to downtown. Kristi and Matt... More

If I could give the Saltair Inn 10 stars I would! We were looking for a very special place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary...the Saltair Inn, and hosts Matt and Kristi, didn't disappoint!

Matt and Kristi really have it together at the Saltair Inn. They are warm, friendly hosts who were very helpful for planning hikes and activities in the park. The beautiful, historic Inn is in a perfect location with great views and easy walking access to everything in Bar Harbor including the shoreline and the bar to Bar Island right out... More
