Atlantean Inn

11 Atlantic Ave
Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
Beautifully restored historic mansion with modern comfort. We had the smallest room (Elsinore), which was more than ample for our stay in Bar Harbor. Within 10 minutes of our late afternoon arrival, Heidi recommended a perfect sunset hike in Acadia and sent us on our way with snacks, reusable water bottles, and a map of the park! The Atlantean is just small enough to be a welcome change from hotel stays, and just large enough that you don't feel like an awkward houseguest. Our room was very quiet with an updated bathroom and very comfortable bedding. There is no wi-fi and the TV looked small and old, but we didn't miss either and welcomed the chance to unplug. Breakfast, which I believe is always vegetarian, was filling and delicious. In addition to the formal living room, there is a covered front porch and large outdoor garden for guests to enjoy.
I can not recommend Atlantean cottage enough. Gary and Heidi were amazing. From helping find the perfect hikes and restaurants to Gary's amazing breakfast. The bed was super comfortable and Heidi went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. Also the outdoor area is super cute and great to sit and read. They were super responsive to email and helpful in coordinating travel plans. The location is great, on a quiet street but a block from downtown. We can't wait to come back soon!
The Atlantean Inn is a great B&B option in the Bar Harbor area. It's located only a few blocks from the main strip of restaurants and bars and a short car ride to Acadia for a visit. Heidi and Gary were great hosts for the one night we stayed. They let us check in a bit early, had some great refreshments in the pantry and made an awesome breakfast the next morning. The room was large and it looked very well maintained. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. They even had a parking lot in the back which was key for this area. Parking can be tough. Overall I would definitely stay here again if I go back to Bar Harbor.

Aysgarth Station

20 Roberts Ave
Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
Everything was perfect. Our room was comfortable, clean and well equipped. Breakfast was amazing - thank you Jane. Steve was helpful in directing us to the best spots to visit. Only problem - the towels were too soft. Even the other guests were nice and helpful.
Cozy little B&B in Bar Harbor. Great location and walking distance to downtown. Breakfast was tasty each morning with more than enough to eat. The Innkeepers were very accommodating and more than willing to answer questions about the local area or give suggestions for a day's agenda. I highly recommend staying here!
My wife and I visited Bar Harbor in early October 2014 as part of our annual visit to New England. We picked Aysgarth Station partly based on Yelp reviews and were not disappointed. Well placed on a quiet street close to town, we were warmly welcomed, our room was well appointed and comfortable and breakfast was a treat. Parking is a bit limited, but in typical New England style, guests simply popped their car keys in a box in the hall so that cars could be moved as required. Great value.

Heathwood Inn

6 Long and Winding Rd
Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
A great place if you're looking to be close to Acadia- Lena's Breakfast is AMAZING! We stayed in the Master's Suite.... Which came complete with a very nice private bathroom and private deck. We loved sitting out after a night in Bar Harbor and look up at the stars. A beautiful place to stay if you're looking for a weekend retreat.
Best b&b around. Only a few miles from the mountain. Owners are a very friendly family. Your choice of rooms:). Menu to fill out for breakfast, also bikes if you would like to use, if you have a roof rack you can kayak as well.
Best B&B ever, hands down. My husband and I have been coming to Bar Harbor 4 years in a row, and we always make a point to stay at Heathwood. 3 reasons why you should visit, too: 1) The food. Delicious, creative homemade breakfasts - always a huge spread with fruit, two kinds of baked goods, and one dish of eggs/sausage. Coffee and juice are plentiful. After breakfast, there are always cookies and extra baked goods sitting out in the foyer/dining room if you want a snack with your afternoon tea/coffee. 2) Rooms are extremely comfortable and homey, and very clean. 3) Karen, the innkeeper, is extremely friendly and attentive, and always gives the best advice on what to do, where to eat, and where to find the less-traveled yet most amazing trails. She always chats with incoming guests to find out what they're looking for in their trip to Maine, and gives great suggestions on how to get what they want out of their vacation. Honestly, what else could you want in a B&B?

Sassafrass Catering

Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
We booked these folks for our wedding based on a few emails and looking at their website, and couldn't have been happier. The food was excellent (plus locally sourced and organic) and unpretentious, and the staff were laid back, flexible, and way-competent. They were totally responsive through all stages of planning, and were completely cool with us buying our own booze and desserts.

The Maples Inn

16 Roberts Ave
Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
Maples Inn is the most delightful, charming B&B I've ever stayed at. My friends and I took a road trip up the coast, and we were only able to stay here for one night, but we wished it could have been much longer! The breakfasts here are delicious and beautiful, the rooms (we stayed in the Birch Suite) charming and lovely (the bed was so soft and comfortable), and the innkeeper, Mark, was super thoughtful and helpful, friendly but not overbearing. We absolutely LOVED staying here; I would plan a trip back to Bar Harbor just to be able to stay at Maples Inn!
Big house in town. Loved it! Good food. Nice guy! Parking is a little tricky.
Quaint and quiet bed & breakfast just steps away from the touristy hustle and bustle of downtown Bah Hahbah. Excellent quality and value. The Inn was spotless and tastefully decorated with antiques for a New England B&B. Our suite was SO cozy! I felt like I was sleeping at home in my own bed! The linens were nice quality and even though the shower was small (stall-style) the bed and sitting room made up for it. The Innkeeper was extremely friendly and nice...eager to make dining recommendations and reservations if needed. We couldn't stay for their gourmet breakfast, but I truly wish we could have!!! They were making macadamia pancakes! OH BOY!!!! Maples Inn is also gay-friendly.+++

Hearthside Inn

7 High St
Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
My wife and I stayed in the Hearthside Inn for a short vacation to Bar Harbor in late June. Susan and Barry are the heart of this place. Wonderful, wonderful people. Great food. The rooms are great. We stayed in the Winston Churchill room, which comes with a very nice and spacious private bath and a private balcony. It was so nice we kept the windows up all day and night. At the end of of vacation, we felt as if we had made new friends! We will without doubt be back. If you find yourself in this most beautiful part of the country, you should stay here.
Fantastic place to stay! Tea & cookies at 4pm was one of my favorite parts-- homemade warm gooey chocolate chip cookies were the perfect post-kayaking/climbing snack, and the breakfasts were also delicious. The hosts knew a lot about the area and were able to recommend hikes, restaurants and other activities in the area. The room was clean and had a working fireplace which was a lot of fun for us. I'd love to stay with them again!
I almost hate spreading the word about this place because I have a tough enough time getting reservations as it is... :) As always, Susan & Barry never disappoint! Whether it's recommendations on hiking trails or helping make dinner reservations or serving up their rocking homemade breakfast. Their home is gorgeous with lots of character - each room has a uniqueness to them (and its own private bathroom). They're reasonably priced and their breakfast alone makes it worth every penny! Can't wait to go back again!

Coach Stop Inn

Route 3,715 Acadia Rd
Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
My wife and I took our 15th anniversary getaway up the Maine coast. The Coach Stop Inn was easily our favorite stay. The room was very comfortable, nicely apportioned, and immaculately clean. It was Deborah, however, that made everything come together. She was so knowledgeable and helpful about Mt Desert Island. She recommended a great secluded cove to watch the sun set and sent us to several excellent restaurants. And the breakfast is an event! Hand-made, orange zest muffins; french toast stuffed with cream cheese and pistachios....oh my. If you are going to be visiting the area, look for reservations here first. You will be very glad you did.
I knew it was going to be a very good B&B, but Jim and Anna's hospitality exceeded all expectations. We did a bit of research, though not enough to know that Coach Stop is actually located a few minutes outside Bar Harbor Village. That turned out to be a nice treat for us, as it's close enough to town that you can hop in the car and drive over, but just far enough from the "hustle and bustle." Our four nights were just spot on perfect. We stayed in the Abbe Stuite, a super cozy room just off the second floor perfect for a couple, and at extremely reasonable rates. There's a claw-foot tub in the bathroom and a good-size living area as well as a comfortable bedroom, all done in a very relaxing shade of teal. Everything worked as it should, and the bathroom had both a vent system and heating fan (a luxury for the gf). The B&B is at the cutting edge, offering a Roku with Netflix, etc. if you're bringing kids and need to keep them busy. Downstairs, in the sitting room, you can relax by the fire with a cup of coffee and read a book or just mellow out, especially if you catch the well-appointed armchairs at just the right moment. The room is both homey and classy, neither too large (which can be awkward at some B&Bs) nor too small. Breakfast will be the highlight of many a visitor's stay. Jim and Anna are both amazing cooks and I was a bit surprised to learn they they were completely self taught. Their morning masterpieces were not only delicious but extremely creative and well thought-out, and often substantial enough to skip lunch and grab an early dinner. They weren't mere breakfasts but multi-course meals unto themselves, and I'd put put my four breakfasts here against any I've ever had. I'd list what we enjoyed, but I don't want to spoil the fun for future guests. Coffee and tea were available all day and different varieties of delicious cookies were available for us every evening. Gluten-free folks will appreciate the nod to them with alternatives available for both breakfast and snacks. The rooms are cleaned daily, and look immaculate when you return from a hike. The hosts themselves deserve five stars. They are friendly people with genuinely warm personalities, always ready to answer questions or offer suggestions, yet ever considerate of their guests' privacy and individual inclinations. In fact, I probably talked their ear off a bit. We've run into many other B&B hosts, but none as natural at the job as Jim and Anna. We would return in a heartbeat and, given that we fell in love with Acadia, just might.
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon for about a week. Everything was very nice. The inn keepers--Jim and Anna--while new, are very good at what they do. When they found out it was our honeymoon, they suprised us with a bouquet of flowers and champagne. The little touches....the little flower left on the fresh towels every morning, the chocolates left by the bed side every day...were fantastic. Breakfast was great; not once in the time that we stayed there did they repeat meals. The food left me filled and ready for a good hike but not overly stuffed and sleepy. The room itself was perfect. We were slightly nervouse when booking the Abbe suite online because it appeared to be a bit cramped but the opposite is true. The space is actually very roomy and super comfortable; after spending the past month busy wedding planning, my husband and I actually spent a good bit of time relaxing in our suite. The room was equipted with everything...fridge/freezer, headphones, netflicks and hulu, a hair dryer and lots of other things to make you feel at home.

Holland Inn

35 Holland Ave
Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
Evin is an exceptional innkeeper. As a first time visitor to Maine, she parsed out wonderful advice which enabled us to make the most of our Acadia trip. She is extremely familiar with the various trails around the park including their level of difficulty. All her suggestions for restaurants and sites to see turned out to be spot on. The Inn is not fussy or fancy. This is Maine folks! Staying here is like staying in someone's home. I really appreciate the kuerig coffee machine in the front room as I like to grab a fresh cup at all hours. The location is excellent... just a short walk into the village, but far enough away to escape the crowds. Super clean, quiet, up to date, and comfortable. Our room seemed practically brand new. Great shower and AC....all the comforts of home, including a full size communal refrigerator where you can store food and drinks. This is a big plus! There is an excellent health food store a stone's throw away and a good grocery store around the corner. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Bar Harbor.
This was out first time at Bar Harbor and Hopefully will not be our last. The Holland Inn was amazing, it is very close to downtown and the breakfast offered was amazing. Straight from the oven to your plate, and it was different and delicious each day. The rooms were very private and comfortable, and Evin was very helpful and told us a lot of information about the surrounding areas. We will definitely come back to the Holland Inn when we come back to the area
Loved this place! Definitely not your typical B&B decorate with ridiculous items...this place was simple but elegant. The rooms were immaculate and quite private. Every morning we had a fabulous breakfast cooked by Evin, the Inn keeper. I was totally amazed at how delicious the food was. Usually I am not a fan of eating at B&B's but please make sure you have the breakfast here. The location of the B&B is perfect.....on a quiet street away from Main Street but yet close enough to walk to the center. A perfect blend. I highly recommend this B&B.

Bass Cottage Inn

14 The Field
Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
What a great place to stay in Bar Harbor. This quiet, beautiful, clean and tastefully decorated B&B right in the heart of town is the perfect place to rest your head. Spend some quiet time in the sunny front room or enjoy fresh cookies and milk in the parlor. The breakfast is amazing and the owners, Terry and Jeff, are a great local resource for places to eat or things to do. The rooms are lovely and my favorite- happy hour wine and snacks every evening. I would highly recommend and will definitely go back.
We stayed at at the Bass Cottage Inn for five nights in Mid-October. Jeff and Teri (as well as the other staff) were very welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable about the area's attractions. The room was comfortable and was always kept clean by the staff. The breakfasts were an amazing way to start out our days of hiking Acadia, going out into the bay, or exploring the town of Bar Harbor. The location was excellent as a launch off into whatever our plans were for the day or night.
We booked the Bass Cottage Inn for our four day stay in Bar Harbor on the recommendation of a friend. When we arrived a bit earlier than check-in, Jeffrey met us at the door and made a fantastic lunch suggestion (Side Street Cafe), guaranteeing that check-in would be ready when we returned. Upon returning from lunch, we were greeted by Greg, who gave us a tour of the Inn and shared its history, checked us in, and led us up to our comfortable room, #5. Although it's one of the smaller rooms in the inn, it felt very comfortable and not at all cramped. The styling in the room was very well thought out- New England, coastal, fresh and crisp. We took full advantage of all the wonderful amenities in the Inn, including the 24/7 pantry where we enjoyed complimentary coffee and fresh baked goods (the orange bars are amazing!), the relaxing adirondack chairs they have in the backyard (the perfect place to read with a glass of wine), and the amazing breakfast they offer every morning (come down to the table hungry, as your expectations will be exceeded). We enjoyed talking with Jeffrey and Greg throughout our visit, getting recommendations on places to eat (Greg smartly recommended the Mache Bistro for our dinner the final night we were there - it was one of the the best meals of our trip), talking with Jeffrey about their travels and Maine. I wish we would have had the chance to meet Teri, but we greatly enjoyed her cooking the evening we dined at the Inn's restaurant, 10 Tables. It was fine dining, but felt comfortable and not stuffy in the least. With its great location in the middle of town, but tucked back where it's a little quieter, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Bass Cottage Inn the next time I'm on Mt. Desert Island.

Coffee Hound

27B Main St
Bar Harbor, 04609
Reviews:
I just recently went to Bar Harbor for the first time. I am a coffee fiend so I checked yelp to help me find the perfect coffee little coffee shop and the reviews on coffee hound did not steer me wrong. Their rocky road iced coffee was out of this world. Not to mention the wonderful customer service! I can't wait to come back on my next trip to Bar Harbor.
We stopped in for a coffee and a quick lunch while on a New England road trip. Between my roommate and I, we ordered clam chowder and a mini spinach quiche. She also had the Acadia turtle, and I had a flat white. The chowder was wonderful--filling and filled with clams; it was perfect after a rainy day in the park. The quiche suffered from being out of the oven for so long but was otherwise okay. The flat white and Acadia turtle were both lovely. The service in particular was great. The owner was incredibly friendly and gave us great coffee recommendations. Definitely a place we'd return to!
Would not recommend. Friendly staff, but both the mocha and the chai were incredibly syrupy - worse than Starbucks in that regard. I'll be looking elsewhere for coffee.
