“Very enjoyable...zero complaints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

My wife, 2 teenage boys, and friends of ours (family of 4) stayed at Holbrook House in mid-July 2013. It was a very pleasant and relaxing "home away from home" feel. The innkeepers are great, the breakfasts are fantastic. I have no recommendations to make this experience better. Keep up the great work!!!

Room Tip: quiet, relaxing

Holbrook House has all the characteristics of a great B&B. The innkeepers are gracious, staff is helpful, location is great, rooms and common areas are beautiful. What makes the Holbrook House a standout are the truly gourmet breakfasts served each day. Innkeeper MIchelle's flavor combinations and food presentations are exquisite. One could not have a better start to a day in Bar Harbor.

This was our 1st trip to Bar Harbour & Acadia National Park. We really enjoyed our stay at the Holbrook House. It was a perfect location, Eric and Michelle were great hosts and so helpful. Their breakfast were awesome, and great afternoon snacks!! I would recommend it to anyone going to Bar Harbour.

Perfect place for a relaxing getaway in a picture perfect location. The owners were great hosts that made us feel welcomed and right at home. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Bar Harbor.

This was our first visit to Maine and couldn't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay and this lovely B&B. We stayed in the Chantilly room and absolutely loved it! Must stay!

Highly recommend Holbrook House as a B&B in Bar Harbor. We were upgraded since it was a hot weekend and all the a/c units weren't installed -- so we stayed in the Garden Room instead of the Rose Room (where the bath was separate). All of the rooms look lovelier in person as I think the pictures are outdated on their site. The inn is maybe a 10 minute walk to town/the waterfront. Close drive to Acadia too. Loved the afternoon goodies/drinks that were left out! All of the bathrooms are private and the tables for breakfast are individual instead of communal if that is important to you. Breakfast, as everyone else stated, was great and original. We hope to come back!

Lovely property, amazingly comfortable beds, friendly hosts, delightful breakfasts, and superb tea time pastries... Nestled within an easy 5 min stroll to the harbor. What a beautiful place, I'm so glad we picked Bar Harbor and Holbrook House. Thanks for having us!

P/s: I believe the pictures on their website are dated, the pictures do NOT do this place any justice. Stay and experience it for yourself!

This was our first visit to Bar Harbor. Eric and Michelle were wonderful hosts. Eric had great suggestions for restaurants and activities. The breakfasts were phenomenal! The room was very nice and the location was within a 5 to 10 minute walk of the restaurants and shops. It was everything that we were looking for at a very reasonable price.
