We've stayed in several B&B's in Bar Harbor and this definitely takes the cake. First off, Jerry and Kim are the kind of people you want as friends, warm, personable, smart and with a great sense of humor. They take seriously their role as your hosts. They both know the area very well having lived there for several decades, and both worked in the past as park rangers at Acadia. Jerry pointed us to hikes we might not have otherwise found and had lots of advice about future trips. Additionally, if you like gourmet breakfast, look no further. Jerry truly is a gourmet chef with creative breakfast combinations and a real flair - if you're looking for art on a plate every morning this place is for you. As food fans themselves, the hosts also provide excellent tips on local restaurants.
The location is very convenient - walking distance to all the Bar Harbor restaurants and shops, and easy to find coming into town. The one drawback is the busy street which is quite noisy in the front of the house. However, in the back it is lovely and quieter, overlooking a long lawn and gardens. I recommend choosing a room at the back of the Inn. Room #1 at the front was a lot of fun, with a large 2 person whirlpool tub separate from the bathroom, but I would forego that for a quieter room in the back next time. Some of the other rooms have single jacuzzi tubs in the bathroom too.
This B&B has so much going for it. We visit Bar Harbor regularly and we plan to put Stone Throw Cottage at the top of our list when we book our next trip there.
