We stayed two nights in room number 5. I would have loved one of the nicer rooms I think, but we had a couple of issues with our room. First off, room 5 is on the bottom floor right next to the back door. If anyone is staying there that likes to sit out on the patio later in the evening, this can be a problem. We went to bed around 10 (we were getting up for the sunrise at 4:30 AM) and we could clearly hear people talking on the back porch for a while after we went to bed. The other thing that we noticed is that you cannot turn off the porch lights. the 2nd night, no one was on the porch, but the lights were very bright right outside the window. We closed the blinds and the curtains, but our room was still so bright you could walk around with no issues. I tried to go turn them off myself, but there was a bracket on the switch preventing this. We noticed they turned off sometime between 2 and 3. I woke up several times because it was so bright there.

The 2nd issue we had, which was minor, was no tv at all in the room. We were there for hiking and outdoor activities, so it wasnt that big of a deal. We were just a little surprised since that wasnt mentioned anywhere (unless I just missed it when booking, which is a possibility). Overall not a big deal, just felt it should be mentioned when booking.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay there. The hosts were very friendly and breakfast was awesome (we only had breakfast once, the other day we were up too early). The view off the back porch is amazing. I really enjoyed waking up the 2nd day there and going down to the beach to watch the sunrise all by myself. It was so calm and peaceful. Also, pearly, their dog, is awesome. She is so friendly. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again, just definitely not in room 5.

Room Tip: I would avoid room 5 unless you bring your own sleeping mask and earplugs. Other rooms looked very...

Upon arriving at the inn at bay ledge we felt like we won the lottery. When searching for places to stay on line there are no guarantees. you read the reviews,check locations,guests reviews etc
at some point you just take the plunge and commit to a place.
inn at bay ledge is a magical magnificent inn set on top of a mammoth cliff which overlooks the rugged maine ocean coast.the inn keepers jack & Jeannie were helpful with dinner reservations,
and other Acadia national park insiders suggestions. if you prefer the cookie cutter hotel chains than don't stay here. If you are an inspired traveler that craves surprise,adventure and meeting other kindred spirits than you will love inn at bay ledge!!!

Stayed here for several nights and had the most relaxing and wonderful time. The location is excellent: on the water (what a view!), out of the busy tourist craziness of Bar Harbor (but still close enough to dart in), and very close to the main entrance of Acadia. Jeani's breakfasts were absolutely amazing and she and Jack were very helpful in suggesting restaurants and itineraries. Will never stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor have balconies but almost all the first floor rooms have great water views...

Meticulous service; incredible location; beautiful room; friendly, caring proprietors! The current website does not do justice to the dramatic beauty of this Inn. Wonderful breakfasts on a porch overlooking the bay. Cozy, quiet room. Awe-inspiring stairs down along the cliff to an amazing rocky beach. We'll be back!

Our first trip to Bar Harbor was even better than we expected and the Inn at Bay Ledge was the perfect place to staay. The Inn has a warm feel and the view and grounds were breathtaking. We woke up each morning in a beautiful setting and Jeani's daily breakfast was delicious. . Jack and Jeani were very helpful and always willing to share info and their love of the area.

We cant wait to return next year.

My husband and I were there to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Jack and Jeani were friendly, food was fantastic, every detail of this inn was a treat. The view from our room was breathtaking. A walk on the ocean shore with coffee every morning, right in the backyard were stairs to the water. We wouldn't stay anywhere else when we return to bar harbor. Thanks for a beautiful and blessed vacation

This was our 3rd stay at Bay Ledge including being engaged here 20 years ago. The inn itself and its location are perfect. Jeani and John, our innkeepers , are gracious, welcoming and helpful. The rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. The views cannot be beat. It is conveniently located a short drive to downtown bar harbor. We love it here and will come back as often as we can!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms preferable with balcony and more privacy.
