Owner description: St. Saviour is an historical Episcopal church. The oldest part of the church was begun in 1876; later parts were added through 1901, including the renowned collection of stained glass windows by Tiffany and others. The parish is still active today, and we invite you to visit for a tour, for worship, or just for a moment of quiet respite in your day. During the tourist season (June - October), the church is open daily from about 8:30 - 5:00 for self-guided tours. Guided tours Sunday 11:15 (after the 10:00 Eucharist) and other times by appointment. The Church office (next door) is open Tuesday-Friday 8:30 - 1:30 year-round. May God continue to bless you!

“Stain Glass Windows”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This church is on the register of historic places and has the most amazing collection of stain glass windows anywhere, including 10 by the Tiffany glass studios. Pick up a copy of the stain glass window self guided tour at the desk or better still take one of the several tours of the building offered each day. Please remember to leave a donation.

“A little look backward and great art”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I was most interested in the basics and beginnings of this church. What was the original part gives insight into old old churches and then you get to see how it expands. It was a darker church but has many beautiful stained glass windows. A guide will provide you with more insight if you catch the day they are available. The cemetery outside is interesting as well.

“Tiffany window spectacular !”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

A small beautiful church right in the heart of Bar Harbor. If you love stained glass and Tiffany windows in particular, you must not overlook this church.Take the time to visit the church when there are no services. Bring binoculars to see the fine details and choose a sunny day when the colors will be most magnificent.
