“Fabulous getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

My husband and I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts, but the Yellow House has out did them all, it was clean and had spacious rooms, large bathrooms with walk in showers, the common areas were comfortable, and well decorated. The hosts Pat and Chris, served up a delicious breakfast each morning starting with fresh fruit with homemade granola and Greek yogurt, and lots of blueberries, something sweet or savory, always delicious. Couldn't ask for a better location, walking distance to everything, after a day of enjoying Arcadia, my husband and I would go back and have wine and sit on that beautiful porch and reflect on our day, Thank you Pat NdChris, for a memorable four nights, we can't wait to come back. Margaret and Al

Room Tip: Stayed on the first floor, had access to the porch

Very nice and clean, well decorated old house. Breakfast was nice and met some good people. Chris and Pat were very attentive and helpful. Very close to everything in Bar Harbor. Kind of pricey but nice for special occasions. It felt like you were taken back in time to a simpler place. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Upstairs was quiet.

My partner and I stayed at the Yellow House in Bar Harbor in June 2014. This place is a beautiful two floor heritage house with spacious rooms and a beautiful garden. The whole place was immaculately clean and nicely decorated with some of the statues by a local artist.

The king size bed was a delight. The bathroom was large with marble counter and walk in shower.

The owners Pat and Chris are very nice and friendly people. We had a couple of good conversation with them. Not to forget the Yellow House has the best location possible. It's only one block from the main street and two blocks from the ocean.

They served us a superb healthy breakfast at the garden. We started with fresh coffee and juice and a bowl of mix fruit. Then followed by a quiche and green. Desert was a very yummy cake. We asked if we could stay another night but unfortunately they were booked :(

We stayed at the Yellow House for six nights in June. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The location was great! You are one block from the main street and one block from the harbor, all the while tucked into this seemingly secluded sanctuary of beauty and calm. We stayed in Jack's Room on the first floor and had a private entrance to the porch. It was simply lovely. The room was spacious and very clean. The inn was very quiet at night and we heard very little in the way of noise from the upstairs guests. The breakfasts were delicious, and very creative with local in-season ingredients. (I've been looking online to try to find some of her recipes to try at home. She inspired me to cook!) Pat and Chris and their staff are very knowledgeable, attentive, and helpful about touring the area and dining out, without being the least bit intrusive. We enjoyed being able to park the car at the Yellow House and walk to the restaurants, shops, or the green. We came for relaxation and a chance to explore Acadia National Park and the other sites of Bar Harbor. We achieved our goals and so much more. I would definitely recommend the Yellow House as an excellent place to stay and I would love to return again for another stay. It was simply lovely! Thanks, for a wonderful time, Pat and Chris!

We stayed at Yellow House in June 2014. It was out of our budget but a discount was offered for June, which made it affordable for our budget. It is a very large and spacious house with very large rooms. Our room had 5 full-sized windows and enough space to make thee king-sized bed look small. It was typical of the two other rooms that we saw. The bathroom was also enormous with separate stand-up shower, which I appreciate. The common areas were elegant, spacious, and inviting. We enjoyed siting on the deck sipping the complimentary afternoon wine. Chris and Pat were extremely helpful. They have been in the hotel and restaurant business for their whole life and attended to every detail. There suggestions for navigating, restaurants, and activities were excellent. Chris provided local insights on the weather that were accurate and allowed us to plan accordingly. Breakfast started with the best granola that I've had with Greek yogurt. The hot dish was very good. It is just off Cottage and Main Street, which is the center of action in Bar Harbor, the water front, and the harbor trail. It is the nicest B&B that we've stayed at.

Room Tip: We stayed on the Malvern. It is on the second floor above the living room. It had 5 beautiful wind...

Pat and Chris were helpful and hospitable without being overbearing. Gave us great restaurant recommendations and info on hiking some areas in Acadia. Housekeeping staff were delightful as well both in their demeanors as well as the quality of the services they provided. Creative, nutritious and delicious hot, full breakfasts were wating for us each day. The location was also ideal: very close to shopping and restaurants, as well as the water but secluded enough that you did not feel like you were in the thick of all the activity of Bar Harbor. We greatly enjoyed walking the nearby Shorepath (1.5 mile-elevated,paved walk along the rocky ocean shoreline) numerous times. (Our trip was both business and pleasure).

We couldn't have dreamed up a better B&B to stay in. The location is within walking distance of everything. The B&B itself is quaint and relaxing. The rooms are decorated so well. The hospitality was exceptional. The breakfasts were delicious (fresh fruit, homemade granola, and plenty of Maine blueberries).
