“Top-Notch B&B”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. Quiet environment, large bedrooms, soft towels, hot-air heater in the bathrooms, and the breakfasts were truly gourmet. We stayed 2 nights. The first morning offered French toast with slivered almonds, served hot from the pan and garnished with red raspberries and a slice of orange. The second morning offered a delicious "grittata" (grits in place of bread) with sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, onion, and corn, next to a blueberry muffin. Great ways to begin the days, and the other five mornings are all different, too, each week; I'd love to have experienced all of them. Walking distance (only a block or so) to Main Street in one direction and Shore Trail in the other. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: See website YellowHouseMaine [dot] com for pictures of the rooms; each is different. We stayed in Ro...

Chris and Pat fulfill your every need at the Yellow House. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and the breakfasts were excellent. Although the inn is secluded in a small enclave, it is still within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor. The morning we were up very early for whale watching, Chris was up as well and had coffee ready for us. The morning we left (5:30 a.m.) once again, Chris had coffee ready in take out cups! Their knowledge of the area was greatly helpful to us. We definitely recommend The Yellow House

Room Tip: We stayed in the Agamot (?) room. Both the sleeping area and the bath were very roomy.

Wonderful house just minutes from town and shore path, but very quiet and peaceful. Chris and Pat are great hosts and nothing too much trouble, even down to wine on porch in evening.
Met lovely guests and was a very friendly place to stay.
Wraparound porch, a great place to have a wonderful breakfast.

It was in a perfect location just off Main Street. The rooms were beautiful and very clean! It also has a great porch to sit out on and enjoy. The owners Pat and Chris were very knowledgable on things to do in Bar Harbor and what restaurants to eat at. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. See you again soon.

but private and quiet and wonderfully appointed. Pat and Chris, the owners, are wonderfully friendly and helpful people. The first thing you'll notice about the Yellow House (except, of course, for its creamy yellow color, is the wraparound porch, which is a wonderful place to sit before your day starts or after your day ends. The rooms are uniformly comfortable and well-appointed, with a sitting room that is soothing in its yellow and blues. Excellent breakfasts. No more than a five minute walk to the absolute center of town, the shore walk and the harbor without any sense of bustle. Ten minute drive to two of the entrances into Acadia. I highly recommend the Yellow House.

Room Tip: I think they're all probably very fine.

We had been driving New England for four weeks and stayed in small inns and b&bs. This was one of our favorites. From what we understand, Chris and Pat bought the inn fairly recently. What we know is that they have done a lovely job in making it a great choice for Bar Harbor. The inn is lovely and has wonderful amenities including a gourmet breakfast each morning. Chris and Pat are warm and make staying with them a lovely experience. They provided great advice about restaurants and also drives around the area. The really great thing about the Yellow House that sets it aside is that it is a small inn in a fabulous location. Set just down a path from Main Street in an area called "the field", it is secluded enough to be a respite from what can be a busy, busy place during high season and yet it is also just a 5 minute walk down to the water's edge. We loved the Yellow House and intend to return again. (One word of caution, however, is to make sure you have the Yellow House located at correct address: 15 The Field. There are other inns of similar names.)

Room Tip: We chose the Malvern room, but I would think that any room would be fine. The area is very, very qu...

Pat and Chris Coston leave no detail unaddressed. Wonderful authentic Maine summer cottage. Spacious rooms, first class amenities, and the perfect location in Bar Harbor. A few steps from the Shore Path, a few steps from Main Street, but in a spot that feels private and secluded. Beautiful porch and breakfast to die for. Truly the best of everything.
