My husband and I loved our stay at the Primrose Inn and would stay again in a heartbeat. The innkeepers are very kind and knowlegable about the area. The most impressive aspect of this inn is the attention to detail. The innkeepers have addressed every possible need of a travler. From extra toiletries for those who have forgotten while packing,...

This was a return trip for us! We absolutely delighted in every aspect of our 3-day stay. Jeff and Catherine are gracious, warm, kind, and Christ-like in all they do. Their pursuit of excellence provides an "over-the-top" experience in service, accomodations, and hospitality. How thankful we are that we've been the recipients of such a gracious gift!

Organized, relaxing, attention to details, are just a few words to describe Primrose Inn. I've traveled a lot and spent days and weeks in a variety of accommodations. I've stayed at B&B's much higher priced with much less service and attention to details. I was so impressed with their organization and attention to details.The breakfast each day was absolutely wonderful....

Primrose Inn is the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Bar Harbor, Maine! The staff is courteous and caring (but they do not smother you). Our room was very comfortable and well-decorated. The location is within walking distance of the shops and restaurants, as well as the bay and is very close driving distance to Acadia National Park. We would highly...

My wife and I stayed a the Primrose Inn for 4 nights in May, 2011. We loved it! The owners are so friendly and helpful and they went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfasts were wonderful, and were the mid-afternoon snacks. We were amazed at how well organized the inn was, from the ordered selection...

It’s a comfortable inn however nothing really stood out to make it above average. Breakfast was good. We were in room 8 one of the smallest and cheapest rooms. I found it a bit too small and awkward but I got use to it. The “private” porch with this room is actually connected to the porch for another room and...

The Primrose Inn was amazing!! Great location just a couple of blocks from town (far enough to be quiet but close enough to walk to everything). The innkeepers are fabulous too!! Lots of little extras that I haven't seen at other B&Bs (early pre-breakfast coffee, water/soda available, great library of trail guides, restaurant menus and DVDs, etc.). We stayed in...
