“Very cozy and friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2011

Eric and Michelle made a wonderful homemade breakfast for us. They make 99% of food is homemade and it tastes wonderful. They sat and talked to our group about how their business started and what improvements they have made and are planning to make. They also gave us a tour of the different rooms and showed how each as special. They were interested in our travels and experiences.
Our room was the Cadillac suite upstairs which was great for the four of us girls. Plenty of space for us to spread out a little. I was surprised that there was even a fridge and microwave that i used to keep and warm up my blueberry pie. They seem to have thought of everything!

Stayed here over Memorial Day Weekend with my husband for a quiet getaway. The location is great - just a 5 min walk into town and the ocean, and a few minutes drive from Acadia. It is set on a somewhat busy road so a bit of traffic going by, but other than that very quiet at night. Owners were very nice and made some great recommendations for dinner, and even offered to book our reservcation. Breakfast was just ok. But the price and location are just right so I would definitely recommend it.

We stayed at the Holbrook House for 3 rainy days this week. We found the place in the Bar Harbor Tour Guide and reseached their website. What a pleasant surprise. Michelle and Eric are the new owners and are wonderfully friendly and helpful. Our room was beautiful and reasonably priced. The breakfasts were out of this world. Eric and Michelle were very helpful in recommending places to eat, calling for reservations and helping us find things to do for three rainy days. We will be returning next year and would recommend this B&B to our best friends. Holbrook House is withing walking distance of the sites in Bar Harbor and just a short distance from Acadia.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are well-appointed and decorated.

My husband and I spent a weekend at Holbrook House this past July (2010). We were pleasantly surprised by the quiet sleep we had here given the age of the home. The rooms were charming, quiet and very clean. Judy was lovely and we look forward to returning next summer!
