Beware! Booked our Memorial Day 2016 week visit to this B&B in November 2015. Confirmation email in hand. Received a phone message from Tim last night (4/27/16) saying they were closing the B&B for 2016. His message claimed he left a message 1-2 months ago about this. I have not received any prior phone or email message regarding their closure.... More

I was in the Look Nook which is a smaller room but does have a small balcony. The bathrooms are pretty small but they are perfectly good, clean and functional. My only criticism is that the hairdryer needed cleaning. The bed was very comfortable although the quilt could have done with a wash. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.... More

Nice room, small, but I think that's normal for most BNBs. A really comfortable bed and linens. Breakfast was good and there was an offer for seconds if we wanted. Here was a young boy there that was a bit noisy, understandable for his age, but not for guests in a BNB. The dog was awesome. No real complaints but... More

This property gets a lot of good reviews and truly there is nothing wrong with it. Great location and adequate rooms. It is dog friendly however there is no yard and even though the owners had two dogs of their own it didn't feel like a good place to be with a dog. For some reason I felt claustrophobic in... More

Cute rooms, VERY small bathroom/shower, walkable to all the downtown Bar Harbor restaurants, etc. Loved being able to bring my dog with me, and a short drive to all the hikes in Acadia National Park. Owners are very knowledgeable, and breakfast was always good. Owners are sometimes friendly and chatty and other times stay out of the way, but overall... More

My girlfriend and I are annual visitors to Bar Harbor, and this year needed a place to stay in town that would accommodate our young puppy. Canterbury Cottage was one of the few pet-friendly places we found, but having stayed there now, we would stay there again in a heartbeat even if we didn't have our dog with us. There... More

Found Canterbury Cottage via TripAdvisor and not disappointed! Accomodating innkeepers. Perfect location among funky shops and restaurants plus easy drive to Acadia National Park, which was our ultimate destination. Innkeeper Tim provided lots of detail and suggestions for hikes to take and views to see. Incredible park, by the way. Room was spacious for 3 with a KS bed +rollaway.... More
