“Loved Mosely Inn and Motel”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stayed in the motel part on the first floor which made for easier luggage handling. The room was lovely, bed comfortable, and the location made our stay so easy. We walked everywhere in Bar Harbor without having to worry about parking a car. Scones and cookies were available in the Inn and they even provided us with a CD for guiding us through Acadia.

We stayed in one of the King Bed rooms in the town motel of the Moseley property. The room was spacious with a refrigerator (which worked like new) but no microwave. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean which is always greatly appreciated. Our wifi connection was fine. The water pressure, particularly the sink, was a little low but functional. Windows open so you can allow a breeze in which we always find a pleasant plus.

The motel is located right next to the B&B part of the property and the owners were very friendly and very helpful. The property itself is on a residential street in town. There is a small gazebo in front of the property with a swing which we enjoyed in the evening. The location means you're in a quiet part of town but only a block or so from some of the shops and restaurants which is very convenient. The shore path is only a couple of blocks away and is a worthwhile experiance and highly recommended. Ask the owner's how to find it and enjoy!!

While staying here try to time your trip so that you can take the walk out to Bar Island (it's part of Acadia National Park) at low tide. There is a sand bar from town to Bar Island that becomes exposed at low tide and you can walk or apparently even drive the less than a mile distance to the island. We took photos of Bar Island from town at low tide with the sand bar exposed and at normal tide where all you see is water from town to the Island! Very Cool!

This property is really recommended. You can enjoy the town and Acadia National Park while staying economically in the motel or spend more and take in the comfort and social style of the Bed And Breakfast.

We stayed in the motel room 7. It was perfect for my teenage son and I. It was close to great restaurants, shopping, the ocean path, and attractions. At the same time, it is tucked away down a very quiet street. It was very peaceful. We spent most of our time in Acadia Park so we didn't need the extra luxury of the cottage. The beds were comfortable. The room was spacious and extremely clean. Pam the housekeeper is super friendly and takes her job seriously. The front yard and gazebo were perfect for relaxing moments between our adventures. We have nothing negative to say. You can't go wrong with this place.

We stayed in the Cottage. Complete hospitality and friendliness with all five people we dealt with was the thing that impressed us most. Excellent breakfasts. No parking problem because we were in easy walking distance of anything in Bar Harbor, including the shore walk. Spacious rooms; well appointed, well cleaned each day. Comfortable bed. Inviting covered balcony; out of the weather. The hosts and the owner are well acquainted with the attractions of the area. Keep in mind that this is an 1880's home of a wealthy family. If you are looking for quiet comfort; it is here. If the latest travel features are high on your list; better go to a motel. This was our second five day visit and hopefully not our last.

We had a private porch, couch, perfect breakfast, great pastries by Mary, and a short walk to all sorts of options in Bar Harbor. Beautiful setting. The walk by the ocean and a return for afternoon goodies was great. Good fresh coffee all day.

We had a great time visiting the Bar Harbor area, and the Moseley Cottage was the perfect room for us! Pam was awesome in setting us up with maps of the area and giving us advice on where to dine, plus the staff was super friendly and helpful as well. So many nice touches at this B&B... from the fresh goodies that were always available to the soft towels and delicious breakfasts. We also liked the fact that it was close to all the shops, yet still off the beaten path so it was nice and quiet for sleeping. Everything was simply wonderful. I'd highly recommend Moseley Cottage!
