“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

My wife and I have been vacationing at the Seacroft Inn for the past 10+ years and each visit is special. After driving for 12 hours covering 650 miles from our home in Pennsylvania we reach our "second" home. Maine and Bar Harbor in particular captured our hearts the first time we visited and with each subsequent visit it becomes harder to leave. The Inn is conveniently located on a quiet side street just a short walk away from the shops or the ocean. Bunny is the ideal hostess. She greets us each year like a friend and makes sure our stay is comfortable and relaxing. Her rates are terrific and her breakfasts are fresh and tasty. We've always dreamed of owning our own B&B and patterning it after the Seacroft. I can't think of a better place to stay and highly recommend it.

We have stayed at the Seacroft a few times now, and enjoy the location, privacy and affordability of this Inn.
I agree with a previous reviewer that it is not a true B&B, yet we find it to be a great, affordable value and don't mind the lack of daily housekeeping or the concept of the breakfast basket delivery.
Given the cost of lodging in the area in general, we love the Seacroft Inn and will definitely return.

We just came back from seacroft Inn this week. I did not want to come home. The stay was peaceful and quite. Perfect for adults. Bunny is one fantastic lady. She respects peoples privacy and makes some excellent muffins that are available in a breakfast basket. She does an excellent job. Blueberry, raspberry,eggnog, and other flavors.
We went there on vacation with another couple and we already made our reservations for next year.

Seacroft Inn, built in 1890, is in the perfect location to see Bar Harbor and even Acadia National Park on foot. The Inn is centrally located between the shore trail which runs along the west side of the island and town and downtown/village green (one block away from each). We were even able to walk to the grocery store a few blocks away. One can catch the bus into the park and never have to drive anywhere while visiting. The Inn has the quirks of an old house but each room has a separate bath as well as microwave and fridge. The hostess provides air conditioners in the the bedrooms as well as flyers and booklets on the local attractions. The front porch and lawn is available for guests to sit and relax. Our hostess even let us park our car in the overflow parking area after we had checked out so that we could explore more of the park via bus for another half of the day.

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!
