Quite honestly, I was a bit apprehensive when driving to the Heathwood Inn. The website was quite modest and simple and Karen, the innkeeper was a bit underwhelmed when we spoke on the phone. However, I was pleasantly surprised!!! Karen was delightful, knowledgeable and full of idea's and helpful suggestions. And the inn itself, while simple and modest, met all of our needs. It was clean and well cared for. An obvious "labor of love".
We stayed in "Eden". The room was well equipped: very comfortable bed, TV, nice decor, and AWESOME space in the bathroom!!! 2 person whirlpool was very nice!! The shower did leave something to be desired, but it was functional. My only problem was that the room was right off the common space/parlor, which is quite tiny. We could easily hear conversations out there so felt the need to whisper in our room. So, privacy is a bit lacking.
The parlor was well equipped with goodies the entire time which is always a nice "extra". Breakfast was good too (although I wish that the hot food was on a warmer or covered because they were a bit more like room temp.) Muffins were delicious.
The B & B is outside the Bar Harbor tourist area/downtown area, which to some may be a pro and to others a con.
Overall, we found it to be an great value. Nice place for a nice price.
