I wish that all the places I visit were like the Quimby House Inn. It was lovely, clean, centrally located and run by gracious, knowledgeable hosts. As a single woman traveler, I appreciated having a room facing the lobby/living area, which is locked at night and felt very safe.
My room was a queen suite on the first floor. It was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and spacious. There were grab bars in the bathroom and the suite looked to be handicap accessible. The bed was good and the windows open for fresh air.
There was tea and coffee available in the lobby all day. They don't serve breakfast but there is a grocery store down the street and a mini-fridge in the room so I got some milk and cereal for a quick breakfast before heading out to see the sights.
During my short stay in Bar Harbor, I drove up to see the view from Cadillac Mountain, walked the carriage trails around Jordan Pond and hiked along the ocean from Thunderhole to Otter Point. The hike along the ocean is a must. It was an easy walk, with spectacular scenery. If I'd had the time, I would have started my hike from Sand Beach and made it a little longer. You can drive and park along the coast at several lots but it is necessary to get out and walk to really see how beautiful the area is.
Even though the inn is close to downtown, it is on a quiet street and there was not much traffic or noise when I was there. I hope to have an opportunity to stay here again.
