We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Atlantean; our only regret was that our stay was a mere two nights. Heidi and Gary were extremely friendly and set about making us feel at home as soon as we came through the door.
We were delayed in arriving by three hours, but this proved to be no problem when we phoned ahead and told Gary.
We stayed in the the Rosserne Suite (on the third floor, bit of a climb but worth it) and we found it delightful - the bed was comfortable, there was a seperate sitting room but a GREAT BIG bathroom with whirlpool and skylight. It was rather good, especially after walking around the island. The rooms were quiet and relaxing.
Heidi and Gary have collated lots of helpful local information/recommendations and the second night we dined at one of their favourite restaurants and did not regret it.
We decided to do the national park tour and they lent us their copy of the CD audio guide for the car, which was much appreciated. The inn was close to main street of Bar Harbor with easy access and parking. The area was really nice and we enojyed walking around.
Breakfast is lovingly homemade by Gary; despite being ardent carnivores we found the fare exceptional. They write the following day's breakfast on the kitchen noticeboard the day before so you know what to look forward to (even though we didn't *really* know what to expect as it was all a bit vegetarian and transatlantic). Gary and Heidi would talk to everyone at breakfast and we found them attentive and interesting.
There are cookies, snacks and hot drinks available all day long. We are also stiil using our complimentary Atlantean Inn water bottles.
All in all, a fabulous stay and we hope to return.
