“No Breakfast, No Hot Water, No one to talk to!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Staying at Heathwood right now, but just till the morning. Informed that they have no Breakfast.
A Bed & Breakfast without a Breakfast? Wasn't too bad until we visited the shower and found out there was no steam or hot water but still could brush the teeth. Attempted to contact management with no answer, "just call me at anytime if you have a problem" Checking out in the morning and disputing my credit card bill at the same time. BEWARE! Really think all these glowing reports are from the owners and their friends.

Room Tip: Please stay away

Lena H, Owner at Heathwood Inn & Suites, responded to this review, April 13, 2015
Heathwood Inn & Suites is under new ownership as of January 2015.
The Inn had adapted to the past 2 owners and has been used as a B & B and a vacation rental.
Dana & Lena Hatch have restored the B & B status of our 1890 5 bedroom 5 Private bath Inn and the Carriage House.
We have chosen to live on site, in the Carriage House behind Inn to be available to the needs of our
B & B guests. We have considered the reviews and aim to make every effort to be available to our guests providing comfort, atmosphere, great breakfasts and a bit of Maine hospitality!
Welcome to Bar Harbor & our small ocean side Village of Salisbury Cove, where owner Dana Hatch was raised and his parents and grandparents owned cabins and had grocery, produce and fly in businesses.

We stayed at the Heathwood for a week and couldn't have been happier! The combination of a great location on the island and the warm and wonderful accommodations were terrific. There is kayaking within a half mile of the property on Northeast Creek. The innkeeper really knew the island and arranged bike rentals (delivered right to the inn) and reservations at great restaurants (both elegant and casual). We're looking forward to another week of vacation in Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: The Master Suite is great.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Heathwood for a long weekend this past summer. We had done some research on what we wanted to do during our visit but still had a few questions. Karen was absolutely amazing and so incredibly helpful. She pointed us in the direction of Bar Harbor's best lobster rolls and gave us some great sightseeing and hiking recommendations for Acadia National Park as well.
Our room was immaculate and breakfast was tasty- far better than any other b&b meal I've ever had.
We will definitely be returning!

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.

Room Tip: I would not recommend this property unless they replace the mattresses.

We stayed at the Heathwood Inn in September and used it as a base for exploring Acadia National Park. The owner was very helpful in suggesting hikes and providing a map book of the park. Her breakfasts each morning were delicious too--coffee cakes and egg dishes. The other guests were all very friendly, which made for nice breakfast gatherings.

We stayed in the Eden Room with the Jacuzzi tub--and wow, is that a spacious bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and I loved the furnishings. If selecting this room, you should be aware that it is right off the sitting room where breakfast is served, so you'll hear breakfast being set up and people gathering. Also, despite the huge bathroom and tub, the shower is quite small.

We were very happy with our choice of bed and breakfast. It is somewhat outside of town but we were glad to be away from the hustle and bustle. It also made for a shorter drive to the western portion of the National Park.

After searching and searching for a B & B for our first trip to Maine, we settled on the Heathwood. With so many choices, we were nervous about making the right decision. We were relieved when we entered our spacious and comfortable room. I was disappointed that we didn't get the opportunity to enjoy the large deck off the room due to wet mornings. Karen, the innkeeper, was very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were simple, delicious and filling. We felt very at home, other guests were equally friendly. The inn was a short drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia which at first we were not wild about but it turned out to be fine, parking in Bar Harbor was somewhat limiting (3 hours) but we worked around it. We hated to leave.

We stayed here for three nights in late August and LOVED it! Karen is a wonderful hostess. Her breakfasts are delicious and satisfying and she is full of ideas and recommendations for things to do and see around the island. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast is a warm and friendly experience with Karen and her guests sharing island experiences as well as suggesting things to do. Would stay here again on our next trip to Bar Harbor!
