“Excellent hospitality & best pancakes ever!”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights, and were so glad we found Acacia House. It is a very short walk to restaurants, shops and the Harbor area, but nicely tucked away in a quiet street.

Our room was on the top floor in the "attic" and was spotlessly clean with a big, comfy bed (beautiful linens). We slept really well here.

Ralph and Anna were relaxed, helpful and friendly hosts. We felt right at home and loved the breakfasts and "afternoon treats". In fact, we'd say that the blueberry pancakes were the best we've ever had! It is tricky to choose from the breakfast menu as everything sounds and tastes so good.

Highly recommended. One of our favourite stops during our 2 week tour of New England.

We couldn't have been more please with our choice to stay at Acacia House. It is conveniently located and easy walking distance to the commercial area of Bar Harbor. What we really enjoyed the most was the food. Breakfast was FANTASTIC. There are standard offerings as well as specials each day such as raspberry and cream cheese stuffed French toast. Each breakfast was started with a warm baked item (blueberry muffins, currant lemon scones) followed by a baked fruit. Freshly baked cookies are served in the afternoon with hot tea. We stayed in the downstairs room right off the kitchen and sitting room. We did not find this to be an issue and would stay in this room again. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was large and well appointed.

Perfectly located on a quiet street close to the city center. Rooms were large and quiet. Breakfast is outstanding. Cookies and tea offered in the afternoon. Friendly and dedicated hosts. Not cheap, but good value for money in Bar Harbor.

I've stayed at a couple different B & B's in Bar Harbor over the years; Acacia House stands right up there at the top. Anna prepares the breakfasts and Ralph bakes the pastries that are such delicious delights mid-afternoons. All the food we enjoyed there was delicious! The location of the inn was outstanding for the time of year that we visited...over the busy 4th of July weekend. In fact, the town July 4th parade was held on the street that was about a half block away from the inn. The location was also great to walk to anywhere downtown, the laundromat, grocery, etc. We stayed at the inn 4 nights and were in the smallest room in the main house, but it was totally comfy for us. We loved the bathroom and claw foot tub/shower. The porch was a great place to begin your day, with bright and sunny mornings to accompany the scrumptious breakfasts. A big winner for us--the reviews we'd read before booking were spot on, and we were very pleased with our accommodations, hosts, food, and the stay in BH!

There's not much to say really, if you stay here then you'll have a great stay guaranteed. Great little inn, awesome service, Ralph was always happy to help. The breakfasts are unreal, so so good. They made us a packed lunch everyday which was supposed to be $12 a go but at the end of our stay they told us that since we used solely public transport we got a discount which covered all our packed lunches for our 4 day stay! We didn't even know about that discount so they could have easily gotten away with not telling us but they're far too nice for that! Just stay here, it's awesome.

Also the second vacation staying at Acacia inn and it was just as great as we remembered it. Anna and Ralph are great hosts and wonderful cooks. Breakfast is amazing. The rooms are clean and very comfortable.
They are close to everything,but quiet at night for sleeping. We wjill be returning. This next time in the fall.

Room Tip: Either the house or the carriage house, you can't go wrong

This B and B was fantastic.. We stayed in room one which is the only room on the first floor. It is next to the kitchen so if u are a light sleeper you may hear dishes banging around early in the morning. We had the air conditioner on so it drowned out all the noise so we were fine. The room was spotless and extremely comfortable. The bathroom had a huge walk in shower with six shower heads and it also had a whirlpool tub which was perfect to relax your muscles after a day of hiking. The location is perfect right in the heart of all the shops and restaurants but without being on a noisey street. Breakfast was out of this world. One morning I had strawberry almond cream cheese stuffed French toast and another morning I had corn scallion and cheddar pancakes with two eggs on top and homemade salsa!!!!! Can't wait to go back just for the breakfast!!!
