“Lucky find”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We were lucky to find space available at Stone's Throw when the other most-desirable inns were full in Bar Harbor last week. It won't stay this way long though as the proprietors, who just opened this season, provided my wife and me a wonderful and top notch experience. They are really attentive, responsive and accommodating to guests' needs and pay particularly close attention to fine details that make a difference. Since Jerry is a former park ranger and they have a long history in Bar Harbor, they helped us get most of our visit to the area too. What's more, they're just really nice people - we really enjoyed our conversations with them. The house is beautiful, clean, well maintained and richly finished. Breakfasts were gorgeous! We'll be back here for sure - but with a reservation next time!

Room Tip: If you have a choice, rooms facing the backyard are quieter.

We happened on this bed and breakfast when we decided to start our vacation a day early (the inn we had reservations for was full, but recommended Stone Throw Cottage.) Stone Throw is a beautiful B&B and the owners are friendly, and attentive. Our room was so comfortable, and the bathroom was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious!

Everything about this B&B is wonderful, but it is the attention to detail that makes it outstanding. From the gift from Fiore (Artisan olive oils and vinegars) in our room to cookies and tea set out in the afternoon, we were made to feel like special guests.

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days during our Maine/New Hampshire trip. It's a quaint and charming little B&B if you're looking for something close to all the shops and restaurants.

Jerry, the owner was everything you would want in an innkeeper-friendly, helpful, and full of good tips.

I have to admit, my favorite part of our stay was the breakfast. Both mornings it was delicious, fresh, and abundant.

My husband and I spent three fabulous nights at Stone Throw Cottage. What made our visit 5 stars? Accommodations, DELICIOUS breakfasts and service. We will definitely go back to this fine B&B. Our room was luxurious, quiet and comfortable. We couldn't have asked more for a B&B!

We stayed three nights in Room 2 and found it charming and clean. The room is on the smaller side but was enough space for two people. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom had a lot of counter space and was very pretty with a painted sink and jetted tub. The room doesn't have a TV (not sure if any of the rooms have a TV) which was surprising at first but ultimately felt better for us to have such a quiet room.

The cottage is well taken care of and has a perfect location, within Bar Harbor and five minutes into Acadia National Park. There's free WiFi and hearty breakfasts in the morning. No separate tables here but two large tables in the breakfast area that allow guests to meet and talk to each other.

Jerry and Kim were gracious and kind hosts who genuinely cared about the guests stay and experiences. They also have a very sweet dog. We will definitely consider staying here again if we are in the area.

Chose the B and B based on the reviews. Everything people say is true. Jerry and Kim are wonderful hosts. The inn is just a short walk from town, close to Acadia and an easy drive to many other beautiful places. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are amazing. You truly won't be disappointed with your stay here.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the Stone Throw Cottage and had an excellent stay. The service was amazing. The rooms were immaculately kept. Breakfast was excellent and I can't say enough about the coffee...it was amazing! Holly was so much fun to talk to. Jerry and Kim were very helpful in helping us decide what activities to do for the day. They were always available and very pleasant to talk to. We spent one full week at the B&B and did not want to leave. We have stayed at various B&B and this one was by far our favorite. We felt like we were at home. Thank you Jerry, Kim and Holly for a very memorable stay. We can't wait to go back. Looking forward to our stay for our first wedding anniversary. We wish you much continued success with your B&B.
P.S.
Say hi to Buddy.
