“Great family b&b”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Great innkeeper with Roberta and adult members of her family. The food was great with Roberts's homemade granola & fresh fruit every day along with varied main courses. Especially liked the long family style breakfast table. Great sitting rooms &porches. Walking to all town attractions.

What a peaceful, beautiful home! The porch by the bay with gentle ocean breeze and salt air was so relaxing. The breakfasts were delicious and healthy. The bed so very comfortable. And Roberta is an incredibly warm and welcoming innkeeper. The location is perfect....truly 5 minutes to Acadia and a few houses from downtown. We cannot wait to get back! Carol & Bob

Room Tip: Roberta's room is very large, and oh so comfortable

The porch view of the bay, the location and proximity to Bar Harbor were great! Find your way to compass point and it's interesting rock beaches that are close by but offer a private/ remote setting well worth the short trip by, car, bike or 1 mile walk from the Inn.

We were offered a very nice room on the 1st night of our stay, large and comfortable enough for my wife and 15 year old niece who slept on a cot. Making our reservations late we were told we would need to move to another room. The 2nd room was much smaller.... with bath just out side. We found it strange that the very nice room we were happy with remained vacant the next two nights. I am uncertain why we had to move... Breakfast was good and accommodations were made each morning for our gluten free niece! Choose of room here is important. A couple I would not have liked at all and a couple were terrific.

Hi Roberta, Thanks for the great time. We loved your hospitality and your smile. You have truly won us over and plan to come back to see you. Your house is so welcoming and always smelled wonderful. The breakfast and conversations with other guest is so nice. The view of the bay and your gardens is wonderful. Sitting outside in the evening visiting with others was great. Rooms were nice, large and clean. Short walk to town. Easy access to everything the Harbor has to offer. Thanks again

Hi Roberta,

Penny Haycox here, your guests from St Catharines Ontario, Canada. We just wanted to say thank you again for such a lovely stay at your beautiful Cottage. We had such a wonderful vacation the entire week we were in Vermont and New Hampshire, but I have to say our stay with you & your lovely daughters in Bar Harbor was the best way to end our trip!!! Like I said we will definitely be back & we will certainly stay a lot longer, hopefully next April. I know there is not a lot open then, but we wont care, we just want some more of that fresh Maine sea air. It was my very first time out there and I had a wonderful first impression, everyone is so friendly and hospitable.

Hope all is well, take care...
all the best to your family, hope your Grandson got off to Colorado ok...we felt bad we couldn’t help

Penny & Gerry Haycox

Room Tip: we stayed in Robertas room, but most of the rooms have a view of the ocean, doesnt really matter, yo...

I want to go back and would stay here again. My husband and I loved the homemade granola. Roberta shared the recipe (after a small donation to the food bank) and then supplied us with a box of oatmeal to make it. Roberta was so we

We stayed here for two nights and were delighted with the lovely water views from the garden
and a very comfortable room also with lovely views. Roberta was very welcoming and helpful and also thanks to Sharon who was always smiling. The house is within a very short walk to the town with many restaurants and shops. Also a short drive from Acadia National Park which is well worth a visit,
