Having never been to Maine, we booked 4 nights at the Inn. Main floor rooms are on the small side. I wouldn't recommend Birch Point room to anyone staying more then one night. Very tight for 2 people with 2 suitcases. And the bathroom vanity is so small, there is no room to unpack toiletries. Innkeeper Bob is available at... More

A homecoming each time we visit. We've stayed here a half dozen or so times since our first visit to Bar Harbor in '10. The rooms are charming, breakfasts are lovely and the location is great. Wine and cheese on the porch on a summer afternoon is a sweet way to unwind after a day spent running and hiking. Bob... More

I recently spent 4 days in Bar Harbor at the White Columns inn. I had high expectations when we arrived. The building is beautiful with well tended gardens. The rooms were very disappointing overall. The room was very small and looked like my grandmother's house. The wallpaper was worn, as was the bedding and the decor was tacky, especially the... More

We spent a lovely evening at the Inn. The room was comfortable. The owner and other staff are very friendly and the breakfast was great. The gardens are beautiful and nice to relax. The location is close to town and an easy walk for eating or shopping. Highly recommend.

We were lucky to find this quaint inn at the last minute for a one night stay and it turned out to be a great choice! It was centrally located, only a couple of min away from the Main Street.

This was our first B&B and it was a terrific introduction. The property is just a few blocks from downtown and the harbor and is owned by a truly welcoming host.

There are quite a few hotels and B&B's in the Bar Harbor area, making it difficult to choose where to stay. After reviewing a number of hotels, I picked this one, and I'm really glad I did!
