My wife and I just completed a long weekend stay at the Primrose Inn. The property was lovely and an easy walk into Bar Harbor. The owner and her staff were outstanding providing all of the service you always hope you will get at a bed and breakfast. The rooms were clean and very well maintained and the breakfast was...

Have you ever read the articles that tell you to sleep in your own guest room to make sure your guests have everything they need?? I think the owner of The Primrose Inn has spent several weekends "playing guest" because everywhere you turn, she has placed just the right touch to make your stay effortless and enjoyable. Need a town... More

Stayed here 3 nights. Our room was amazing with a small balcony and a huge bathroom. The breakfasts were incredibly good and they offered 2 choices every morning that were different each day. We had a plumbing issue that required a repairman to come in and they gave us a card with an apology and cash to use for dimmer... More

My husband and I stayed at Primrose Inn for our Anniversary. We loved everything about it. From the amazing breakfasts, the yummy afternoon tea and homemade desserts, the rocking chairs on the front porch, the comfortable bedding, it was amazing. The staff was so accommodating to us, they even helped my husband plan a vow renewal before we arrived. This... More

Or should we just say we enjoyed our stay at Melissa's ? For Melissa is working hard to make her place a charming home for her guests. Attention to details is paramount from gardens to the rooms, to your parking place with your name on it (room number). Breakfast is excellent, complementary tea is served in the afternoon with delicious... More

The Primrose Inn is a gorgeous example of a well run and beautifully maintained B&B. The staff are friendly and so helpful with great suggestions for dining and sightseeing. Our room is charmingly furnished, large and is equipped with everything we could possibly need. We selected the Leffingwell room and were delighted with our choice. Large bathroom, king size bed...

I really cannot say enough about the Primrose. The staff is extremely friendly, attentive, and welcoming. It felt like you were staying with family (in a good way). The owner greets you every morning for breakfast and addresses you by name. The included breakfast is very tasty. The tastefully decorated rooms are very clean and comfortable (the beds are great...

Where to start, we booked room 10 as others had recommended it, it was a little dark but this is being very picky. Everything about Primrose Inn goes way beyond what you expect. We had everything in the room we needed, right down to a face wipe along with a dark face flannel to remove make up. There was coffee... More

Quiet location with afternoon tea and different breakfasts each morning. Comfortable room with most friendly and helpful staff. Good base to tour Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park with plenty of things to do in Bar Harbor itself.
