“Great town, great inn, great owners”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

This is a gem of an Inn located in a quaint, small town in Maine. The town itself is convenient to Bar Harbor and the Acadia National Forest but secluded enough to be relaxing. There are buses that run all over the peninsula, so park your car and enjoy!

The Lindenwood Inn is a beautifully restored old sea captain's home. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and the service is superb. Most of the rooms have decks which allow for private relaxing, some have completely private decks or patios.

The courtyard has a wonderful heated pool and a beautiful hot tub for relaxing after a hard day of hiking (okay....shopping).

The proprietors are very attentive and will make your stay perfect. Be sure to catch the breakfast in the morning before you venture out, it is NOT to be missed!

Room Tip: If privacy is your goal, head up to the penthouse suite. It has a private deck overlooking the harb...

I've stayed at many B&B's and hotels, and the Lindenwood Inn is one of the best. Starting with the warm welcome from Fred (co-owner) to the cherry Good Morning's by Jim (co-owner), to the atmosphere, amenities, comfort and luxury of the inn, great suggestions for activities and restaurants, perfect location, and non-touristy relaxed nature of Southwest Harbor, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Can't say enough except we hope to return!

Where do I start to describe this wonderful Inn?
We stayed at this fantastic b&b on our most recent trip to Maine and I cannot imagine ever staying anywhere else! Jim and Fred are not only the most welcoming, knowledgeable and attentive hosts, the Inn itself is beautiful, clean, relaxing and above all peaceful! Each morning we were welcomed by one of Fred's culinary masterpieces for breakfast....absolutely delicious!
The Inn is within walking distance of everything you could want or need, including the Island Explorer bus to take you to other areas of Mount Desert Island. Even better, you don't need to go but a few steps to enjoy the Inn's pool and hot tub. The honor bar is an awesome added addition that I've never seen at any of the dozens of B&Bs I've stayed at. It was wonderful to be able to grab a soda or a glass of wine to enjoy on the gorgeous wrap around porch or on the balcony of our room.
We will definitely be back again and will be referring friends and family as well!
You can stop reading reviews and just book this place, you won't be sorry!

Vic and Robin H,
We have been staying at the Lindenwood regularly for the past four years. It's location is great, a short ride to Bar Harbor, Schoodic, and a mere two hours from the Moosehead Lake region. Fred and Jim are attentive and gracious hosts and their breakfasts are a real treat. This is a great place to decompress and to enjoy everything Maine has to offer.

The Inn was a fantastic place all around! Jim & Fred are warm, friendly, & funny! They made us feel at home right away. Breakfast was a culinary experience. We looked forward to breakfast everyday! The rooms were very clean and very well priced. The town was quiet and welcoming, perfectly located near Acadia. We are going to be coming back to stay again and again! Miss you guys already!

Lindenwood has very nice rooms, great breakfasts, and a very helpful proprietor. Fred pointed us at local attractions, tours, and restaurants that met out interests extremely well. There is a spacious, outdoor hot tub that we enjoyed daily as well. We spent three nights, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and plan to return in the future.

Room Tip: We had room 3, but I think all the rooms are good.
