My wife and I stayed at this B&B for two nights while on a long weekend trip to Acadia. We booked this sort of last minute and options were limited (and prices steep given the high season).
The manager of the B&B was extremely helpful, and very knowledgeable on local dining options and hiking trails/activities. She even lent us her book with trail maps.
The property is a bit aged. The room we stayed in (Gorham) had a mobile-floor standing AC unit which was a bit noisy. The biggest problem was the mattress though - extremely saggy which means we sunk towards the center of it and couldn't get a decent night's sleep. Another couple that was traveling with us and stayed in the second room on the ground floor also had the same problem.
Value for money was poor given the bad quality of sleep - exacerbated by the inflated prices that come with Acadia's high touristic season.
We love Acadia and it offers amazing activities - e.g. biking and hiking, as well as good food. Next time we will try to stay at Northeast Harbor to avoid the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor.
