“Best B&B in 30 years of traveling!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

I often think about writing reviews, but rarely get around to it. But this B&B is so deserving of accolades that I couldn't miss the chance to add mine. This is my second night, and I am sitting in front of the fireplace in my large lavish room (Eagle's Nest) eating the homemade oatmeal raisin cookies that were left in our room while we were out to dinner, and drinking Starbuck's hot chocolate, which I made in the little gallery right outside my door. Later, I will take a dip in the hot tub (10 feet from the door) although the indoor pool is also inviting, then spend 15 min in the sauna (5 feet from my door) before hopping into the magnificent four poster bed where I will sleep like a baby in the quietest place in Maine. When I get up in the am, I will take a luxurious shower with the high scale bath products in my large bathroom, put on the warm robe left in my walk-in closet, make a cup of Keurig coffee and sit on my private deck overlooking the water. At eight, I will wander onto the veranda for a 3 course gourmet breakfast, again overlooking the water, before I head into one of the many coastal Maine towns (Bass Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Bar Harbor) for a day of adventure.
Do I have your attention yet?
I haven't even reached the high point- the hosts! Alan and Jeanette are warm and gracious, and made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in their door. When we arrived, Alan was making cheese (!), which we had with wine and crackers at 5:30 ( a nightly occurrence). Within a few minutes we were talking like old friends, and Alan's enthusiasm for making cheese and growing mushrooms was contagious - he lent my husband a book and we are already planning our first crop. The inn has only four rooms, so it is very intimate and it has been great fun meeting the other guests as well.
Great attention has been paid to every detail, the place is exquisite, the food is delectable, the hosts are delightful. My only regret is that we are leaving on Sunday. But not before we book next year!

This beautiful inn is immaculate and has every amenity one would hope for in a 5 star hotel but has the intimacy of an inn. The breakfasts are unique and delicious, wine and cheese tasting is a lovely late afternoon touch and to top off your day are warm cookies in your room before bedtime.
Alan and Jeanette are the innkeepers who go out of their way to make sure all your needs are met and you are comfortable.
We would definitely return. The inn enhanced our trip to Maine.

Room Tip: We stayed in eagle's Nest which is large with a fireplace, high ceilings and a four poster bed...

We stayed at Ann's Point Inn for 4 nights at the end of June. We loved everything about the Inn. The room was very clean, beautifully decorated with a huge two person jacuzzi tub and fireplace. The view from our room of the Sound was gorgeous. Alan and Jeanette could not have been better hosts. We loved the nightly wine and cheese and the breakfasts were amazing. I cannot say enough about Jeanette's cooking. Every day a new and delicious creation was artfully served. The treats we found in our room at the end of the night were absolutely delicious. We felt so at home from the wonderful snacks available all day to the huge collection of movies available to all the guests. I would not hesitate to recommend this Inn to anyone looking to stay in the Bar/Bass Harbor area. Absolutely perfect!

magnificent location, beautiful accommodation, superb facilities, lovely food etc, etc, etc.

Lovely welcoming hosts: Jeannette really knows her way round the kitchen but is very quiet; Alan knows where the cheese and wine is and makes up for Jeanette's quietness.

Yes it's expensive, but one gets what one pays for and Anne's point is indeed value for money.

We stayed here for 2 nights in October in the Eagles Nest room which was very spacious , quiet and comfortable with lovely bay views.
It makes a good base from which to visit Acadia NP and other local attractions.
Breakfast was plentiful and imaginative and we enjoyed our stay.

Ann's Point is by far the best lodging we've ever experienced in all our travels. And this includes both luxury hotels and inns all around the world. We loved our time there and plan to return -- again and again. Our room, The Blue Heron, was beautifully appointed, very spacious with a great lounge chair plus other comfortable chairs & table for reading, contemplation, and general vegging out. And, our corner floor to ceiling windows gave us a beautiful private view of the peaceful inlet outside. The room and bathroom were not only large and comfortable, they were immaculate, a big plus in our view.

And then, (yes, there's more!) those wonderful, wonderful gourmet breakfasts! Freshly baked pastries every day, fresh juice, great coffee or espresso, fresh fruit, and a main course to die for. (Thank you, Jeannette!) Every afternoon at 5:30 Alan treated us to a different wine and cheese selection that we eagerly awaited. And, at bedtime, there were fresh cookies in our room when we returned each evening.

Our hosts, Alan and Jeannette Feuer, were warm, welcoming, and lots of fun. They have a great knowledge of Acadia National Park and the general area, and were always ready with recommendations for activities when we asked. The other guests were terrific, as well. Lots of fun and interesting to talk to. We could not have had a better time, or a more peaceful place to stay.

Wonderful room, grounds, and service. We stayed in the Blue Heron room and loved it. Fabulous breakfasts, quickly custom-tailored to our preferences, and warm cookies at bedtime. We enjoyed every minute of our 4 day stay.
