Nice B&B in good location

Any recommendations for a nice B&B in the Bar Harbor area for the first week of October. I have looked on-line and see several that seem to be in residential areas, and a few that seem to be on the water. Like a nice quiet area but one with a view would be nice too. It would be great to be able to walk to town. thanks.

The reason that several are in residential areas is that those B&B were converted from summer homes or cottages (where cottage meant 10-16 rooms, fully stafffed by servants). There are few that are directly on the water; Saltair is one of those.

Of those listed at www.sleepbarharbor.com, all but three or four are what I would term in easy walking distance of the village center. Aysgarth Station and Hearthside are among those on quiet side streets. Bass Cottage Inn and Ullikana are not directly on the water but are an easy stroll to the Shore Path.

Take alook at The Saltair Inn great location for the town walkable, plenty of parking available and not too far from the National Park. Great views and the owners are a delight very knowledgable and helpful. Check it out on TA.

I have been staying for the past few years at Castlemaine Inn on Holland Ave. It is a nice walk to the village and an easy one. They aren't on the water but is a short walk. The owner, Dan, has a vast knowledge of BH and ANP,places to eat, scenic drives, and all the local interesting places. He is there in a.m. til early afternoon, then Bobbie takes over. She is also very helpful with things.

They have a hot and cold breakfast.It is serve yourself to some really good fruit,bagels, muffins, breads, and several cereals. The coffee is great!!!

The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and some have their own balconies.

Give them a try, you will come back again
