We arrived in Bar Harbor on a cold, wet and windy Saturday in late October. After a long drive from Boston in wind and rain, we were glad to check into our next destination. We booked the room on the second floor with views of the Bay. The room was great even if the weather wasn't. I love fireplaces in... More

We stayed at the Saltair two nights and had a great experience. Matt and Kristi were tremendous in recommending things to do and hikes in Arcadia. The location is ideal for walking downtown for lunch, drinks and dinner. The property is also right on the water and very close to the sand bar you can walk to Bar Island at... More

My wife and I stayed here during the off season for four nights. Matt and Kristi, the innkeepers, are truly good people. They're friendly, easy going, and very knowledgeable about the area. The breakfast is top notch. Best blueberry pancakes I've ever had! The view from the back of the property is stellar and it's literally right next to the... More

We stayed two nights with Matt and Kristi at the conclusion of the fall season. The Inn has a beautiful view, great location to town and Acadia and comfortable, well appointed rooms. Breakfasts were delicious and were the perfect start to a day of hiking. If we go back to Bar Harbor, we'll definitely stay at the Saltair Inn.

Our family group of 5 adults had a great, all-too-short stay at Saltair Inn. It is conveniently located on the water, almost next to the low tide only land bridge to Bar Island, which we walked. We were warmly greeted by Kristi and Matt plus Digger the dog. Rooms are lovely, breakfast great, and restaurants and shops are a short... More

The hosts Matt and Kristi were extremely friendly, helpful and informative. Matt provided us with so many great recommendations of sites to see, walks to take and restaurants to visit. The Inn is beautiful, spacious, very clean and well-maintained. The inn is a short walk to the namesake 'bar' of Bar Harbor, so you can walk across to Bar Island... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Saltair Inn in Bar Harbor. This was our first visit to Maine. Matt & Kristi were such welcoming hosts.

The Saltair Inn well exceeded our expectations. The room was beautiful, super clean, and Matt and Kristi were so much help to find the best local spots for dining and exploring. The view from the deck is stunning, you could sit there for hours on end.

Love this town and this place! Matt was more than accommodating. Our room was huge with a two fireplaces, great views, and a awesome Jacuzzi tub. The location is very close to everything / definitely in walking distance. But it's enough "out of the way" that you have your peace and quiet. Great deck for views of the water. Blueberry... More
