This is a very pretty place on a quiet street literally steps from the center of Bar Harbor. As some have said it doesn't really fit the B&B mold. Breakfast in a basket and daily maid service are extra. This is not a problem because you can walk to so many fine eateries. But the location is unbeatable and the hosts nice. It's clean and comfy.

I would say, if you really want a fancy traditional B&B go elsewhere but for $139 a night you can't beat this place. If you want a nice place close to everything where you can open the windows and smell the ocean this is it. Great place to make love.

My husband and I stayed at the SeaCroft Inn and had an excellent stay. The best thing about the inn is the location. It is literally steps from the main town area and steps from the ocean path. It doesn’t get more convenient than this. The inn keeper was very helpful and accommodating. My husband fell on a trail in Acadia and she made sure his cut was cleaned and well bandaged while we were there. Thank you!

The room was very large and had a private entrance. It also had a small kitchen. The fridge was great for storing cold drinks and snacks in. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very large. Everything was very clean. The furniture and décor was a little dated, but well kept.

Once again, this is the best location in town and the best value. You will pay twice as much to stay somewhere else in town. With that in mind, this is a no frills B&B, which was fine with us. There is a fee if you want your bed made and room spruced up every day. There is also a fee if you want a breakfast basket in the morning. We cleaned up ourselves and walked into town for a delicious breakfast every morning. Well worth the value!

This inn is seriously the best location and best value in town. The inn keeper takes great pride in making sure everything is clean and comfortable for your stay. She is very knowledgeable on the area as well. I will definitely be back!

We recently traveled along the Maine coast from York to Bar Habor. We selected B&B's based upon travel books and Tripadvisor ratings. The Seacroft Inn is an Inn, not a B&B. There is an extra charge for a breakfast basket, there is an extra charge for room service and there is no attempt at luxury which I usually see at B&B's. However, we had unit 5B which included 2 bedrooms and a bath for $150 for 4 people which is a very reasonable price. It's a good value, it's just misrepresented.

It is 2 blocks from one of the main streets in Bar Harbor and 2 blocks in the other direction to the water. It is safe, has plenty of parking and is quiet. The owner is very nice. The rooms and furniture are clean but worn. It is a good place to sleep after spending days in Acadia National Park but there is no reason to spend time at the inn.

Acadia is about 10 minutes away and is spectacular. The trail along the ocean from Otter Cliffs to Otter Point has terrific rocky views. The Park Rangers have a shuttle which takes bikers from the center of town to Eagle Lake where they can catch the Carriage Trails. It is a super ride. It is about 5 min. from the Inn to Acadia Bike Rentals and then a block ride to catch the shuttle. A great place for dinner is the Jordan Pond House in the park. We had reservations and they had a table with a great view ready for us. People without reservations had a 45 minute wait. Jordan's Restaurant in Bar Harbor has great blueberry pancakes.

Location, location, location! Seacroft is not a typical B&B with lavish appointments and breakfast; however it is simply the best location to stay in Bar Harbor and gives you a lot of value for your money. My family of four stayed in a 20x20 room with kitchenette and bath and it was one of the most spacious rooms we had on a two week trip. Clean, comfortable, coffee in the morning, 2 mins walking to the shore or downtown...the Seacroft made for a very pleasant stay. Unless you hit some odd heatwave, open up the windows, let the fresh air in and skip the a/c - the inn is located on a quiet street and we slept very well with the windows open in the end of July. You won't be dissappointed if you choose the Seacroft for your stay...skip the basket breakfast here too and walk 5 mins up to Cafe this Way -- excellent, excellent restaurant. One of the best breakfasts ever eaten!

We stayed in Rm. # 4 and loved it so much that it was hard to leave. The room was spotless, with a very very comfy bed, and the location simply cannot be beat. Innkeeper Bunny is wonderful and welcoming, and provides great coffee in the morning. A place that I will definitely return to.

We stayed in Room 6 at the Seacroft, a lovely and comfortable private room with its own staircase, deck and entrance. Beautiful house and gardens, a warm and welcoming place to stay. My husband and I were on a four day getaway hoping to relax and enjoy some peace, quiet, and hiking in Acadia. The Seacroft was the perfect place to return to after a day on the trails. The room had everything we needed. As others have said, this is a no frills type of B&B, but if comfort, privacy, peace and quiet are what you're looking for, this is by far the best choice for value and location in Bar Harbor. We will definitely stay there again.

  • Liked — Comfortable, pleasant, great location, excellent value.
  • Disliked — Liked everything about it.
