We stayed here for a few nights in leaf season. Our room was immaculate, nicely designed, and bed was very comfy. However, the room was very, very small, to the point of being too-close-for-comfort and inconvenient, and not even the smallest room.
I've traveled a lot and have seen a lot of places and my assessment is more than fair. As much as I'd love to give a higher rating based on the hosts and food, I can't. I stayed here because of the positive reviews and overall, I was disappointed.
The room wasn't worth the price and we have no desire to return to the Bar Harbor area. We were very disappointed in the people, restaurants, scenery, everything. It was the worst trip we'd ever had.
If you like the area, and don't mind tight accommodations, do give this place a try because it has it's good points.
