Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

This is a wonderful place to stay. We stayed in motel rooms. They were clean, quiet and comfortable. The price was very good. The location was perfect. It is a block away from the shore path and with in walking distance to harbor, restaurants and shops. And about a 10 minute drive away from Acadia National Park. Next time in Bar Harbor this is where I will stay

Very clean, great sheets, comforters and roomy rooms. Very clean shower and tub, great size frig in room nice outside space with Gazebo and hammock- very reasonable and close to town: walking distance to pubs, fine dining and cafe's. Courteous and really great housekeeper that kept everything in tip top shape.

We stayed in the motel section and it was wonderful. Such comfortable beds and so clean. This is the best location and everything is in walking distance. Trip advisor reviews all say how great this place is and it truly is the place to stay. We loved it, everything was perfect. This was a bucket list location and we choice to stay there on our visit to Acadia National park. So close to the park too.

Room Tip: I asked for a ground floor room and yes, we got one. So nice to have the request done for us.

I had planned a week long trip up the east coast with friends had booked several different hotels along the way. I was most nervous about booking The Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel ..being that we were going to be staying in the motel part and the price was very reasonable. But I was nicely surprised. Although the room is not totally updated it was clean and the beds were awesome!!! The beds made me feet like I was in a luxury hotel...Loved them!! The rooms also have a Kuerig coffee machine in each room...which my husband loved. We also loved that we parked our car right outside our door which made for easy access. Location was great...We were able to walk into town which is also a big plus. I would not hesitate to stay again in the motel part or recommend this to friends ...although from what I saw of the Main Inn part I'm sure it would be lovely to stay in there.

We stayed in the motel section this past weekend in # 8. The room was spacious and clean and the beds and linens were excellent. We enjoyed the quiet second floor location and view across Atlantic Avenue, a beautiful street. Keurig coffee machine and caribou coffee was enjoyed. Best of all, the value for location and comfort was unbeatable. BTW, they have WIFI, which worked well.

We stayed at Moseley Cottage in the Sargent room this past weekend and we cannot wait to return. Pam is such a gracious host. Our room was so spacious and clean with a private porch. Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to enjoy the porch due to the rainy, cold weather. The breakfasts are some of the best you will find at an inn or B&B. You are given several options for your main dish but it's hard to turn away the delicious blueberry scones and other confections that are prepared fresh daily. Mary served us during our stay and was so friendly and helpful in suggesting places to visit during our stay. The location cannot be beat either. You are within walking or cycling distance to town. I cannot say enough good things about Moseley Cottage. Thank you Pam for doing such a fantastic job!

Room Tip: We will certainly request the Sargent room again. It has a king bed, large bath, fireplace and priva...

We visited Acadia and Bar Harbor for the first time over Columbus Day weekend. Only having 2 and 1/2 days there, our family of four (2 parents, 2 teenagers) wanted a location that was within walking distance of town and an easy drive to trails in Acadia. Moseley Cottage Inn was perfect on all accounts. Once back from the park, we left the car in their lot and walked one block from our quiet side street right into the center of Bar Harbor. Pam's recommendations for restaurants were great--in fact, we loved the Side Street Cafe so much, we ate two dinners there! The Precipice Room on the 3rd floor was one of the largest rooms in a B & B that we've ever seen! Everything was clean, comfortable and convenient. Coffee, tea and cookies were always available in the lobby, and the full breakfasts held us over until dinner. We loved that we could each choose our own hot entree, accompanied by fresh fruit, yogurt, homemade granola, pastries and breads. I have never written a review for a property, but our experience at Moseley Cottage Inn was so enjoyable, I felt an obligation to let others know about it.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the Precipice Room on the 3rd floor. Very quiet and sunny, with more than enough space fo...
