We booked the Garden Room Apt and found the room didn't match the way it was described online. The innkeepers should have disclosed that the room was undergoing a renovation -- spackled, unpainted areas in the bathroom, raw wood front steps, no exhaust fan in bathroom. The gardens were overgrown and barely existent in the rear. No one greeted us upon arrival and learned by a letter left for us that we could have maid service only if requested and could use the pool by appointment only because the owners needed hours to warm it up (in August). The microwave, fridge and floor were dirty. Remarkabley, not once did we see an innkeeper or employee during our weekend stay. We called the owner to complain about the extremely loud hot water heater located next to the bed that switched on at 2:14 a.m. and ran for a half hour. He promised to turn it off but neglected to do so. (He said it was the air conditioning unit but it was marked "propane' and looked like a hot water heater to us.) The website boasts the inn's sophistication but the sign on our room door was handwritten on paper and covered with tape. Nor was the inn quiet as described -- we were awakened by Little League warm-ups and game at nearby ball fields. We go to Bar Harbor every summer and won't be going back to this dud.
