We spent 4 wonderful nights at this gracious old style 'cottage' located directly on the Bar Harbor shore path which circles the harbor. The house is lovely and welcoming with great space for relaxing in the living room and the wrap around porch. The bedrooms are varied in size but all seem adequate or, you can rent the entire 3rd...

We just came back from a beautiful weekend at the Shore path Cottage and I cannot praise it enough. The home is lovely and peaceful and the owner and her family are such warm, inviting people. My family of 5 stayed in the 3rd floor Cicely suite which gave us plenty of privacy and felt spacious. The rooms were immaculate...

Beautiful house, tastefully decorated with a wraparound porch. It had private access to the Shore Path and plenty of outdoor furniture. Our room (Bob's room!) was on the ground floor and although next to the front was very quiet. The room wasn't huge but adequate with a nice ensuite. In the evening we took our own wine to drink in...

Shore Path Cottage was a wonderful place to stay! We were in town for July 4th festivities, but only were able to stay the evening of July 3 due to availability, though would have loved to stay the 4th as well. The B&B is very well kept, and though you can tell it's age by it's features, (it seems to...

We recently stayed at the Shore Path Cottage..... I cannot think of any place I have stayed in recent years more peaceful, welcoming and graceful. Our room was perfectly clean and comfy and breakfast in the morning absolutely delicious. I just wish I had stayed longer but I will absolutely be back !!!

We were on a long trip to Canada and wanted to break it up with a stay in Bar Harbor. We were towing a small boat so needed a nice place to stay where we could park the car and boat off-road and securely. The circular drive made this very easy! The cottage is very pleasant and handy for the...

During our 6 weeks in USA/Canada we stayed in 14 Bed and Breakfast properties. This property is highly recommended. The word to describe it is 'homely' and this is appropriate as it has been the family home for more than 40 years. We were given Bob's room which at first we thought to be very basic although the bathroom had...

We had a delightful, restful time at Shore Path Cottage B&B. We were greeted and welcomed with such kindness. Wine in the evening overlooking the bay was so peaceful. Breakfasts were delicious including amazing homemade baked goods. Our bed was so comfortable. Acadia sunrise, sunsets and hikes were remarkable. It was a short walk on a path to a charming...
