Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

A last minute call looking for a discounted rate for the same day did not obtain the low rate I was hoping to receive. However the warm reception from Susan won me over So I decided to take a chance.
The house was very quiet even
with full Occupancy.
The bed was excellent for my aching back.
Barry and Susan interacted with
the guests in a very warm,friendly and caring manner.

Once again, we were very pleased with the accommodation, food and hospitality provided to us by Susan and Barry.They are easy people to deal with and made us feel at home. The interaction with the other guests was fun, too, and Bar Harbor was more tuned in for this time of year than I remember from several years ago. The sunny weather didn't hurt, either!

Our trip of five days to Acadia Park began with a delicious breakfast followed by a mid-day rest with coffee or tea and homemade cookies and ended with a comfy room in this comfortable house. Barry and Susan have thought of many ways to make their guests feel at home and welcome. Susan even asked me about special diet needs which she then worked into my breakfasts. We had pleasant talks and much travel advice about the park and nearby restaurants. This little B&B was an absolute delight and in the heart of Bar Harbor and very close to the park. Walking from there to around town was easy and getting to the park either by car or bike was also fast. A wonderful choice!

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the smaller rooms, Queen Victoria, but it was quite enough for my husband and I...

My Sister and I stayed in the Romeo and Juliet Room which was fantastic. The food was just delicious and plentiful. It was nice to have an evening snack waiting for us when our day was finished. There were menus of Eateries some were close by for midday or evening meals. Susan loaned us a cassette tape for a tour around Arcadia Park. How fantastic the Park is.

Room Tip: We peeked at the other rooms and they all seemed to be great.

Centrally located, charmingly decorated. Delicious breakfasts and snacks. Barry and Susan were the penultimate hosts...always available but never "in your face." They were more than hosts. They were advisors, helpers, and friends. There were lots of little extras: umbrellas, walking tour guides, driving tour guides, and more. It says a lot that so many of their guests return year after year. This was our first time, and we would love to go back.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are charming and unique. If you have mobility issues, ask for a room on a lower le...

Stayed three nights in late June before summer rates applied. clean comfortable room and a good breakfast. Nothing elaborate but tasty and plentiful. Walkingdistance from town and most attractions. Just a short drive into the park. Though our room (Glass Managerie) had a seperate bathroom it was snot a big issue. the room was a good size with a unique balcony and the private bathroom down the hall was a full bathroom. I would stay again.

This little b&b is outstanding, you fell like you are at home when you are at the Heartside inn.
It is very well located in the city centre of Bar Harbor, walking distance to the harbor where you can take the boat to see whales, shops, restaurant, etc.. it is also a fantastic point of start for every sightseeing into the acadia national park (both by car o by bike)

Room are very well finished and decorated. always very clean.
breakfast is very good, with a good variety of things to eat and drink

The innkeepers are extremely kind, ready to help you in every problem or ready to give advice
