We like to hike hard and come home to a comfortable, clean, hassle free place to rest our feet and lay our heads. For our Bar Harbor trip, we wanted super comfortable and we found it in spades at the Moseley Inn. The Cadillac Room was superb, bed wonderfully soft yet supportive, with crisp linens and fat towels. We put the small frig to good use, and needed the A/C for 1 day. The room was small, but we found hooks and corners for what we needed. Breakfast was phenomenal. Eggs cooked to order and fresh daily baked pastries, and an absolutely perfect hostess who put everyone at ease. The b-fast crowd, 10-14 intrepid souls per seating (?), were from a wide background, some passing through, some hikers, some bikers. Morning conversation was fun! Highly recommended for a stay in Bar Harbor.

As noted in previous reviews, the location is excellent. Walking distance to everything, but the street is quiet....we could sleep with the windows open and no noise. The house is historic, beautiful and impeccably maintained. The Sargent Room on the second floor is large and very comfortable with a fireplace and its own well furnished, covered porch. It was a lovely place to enjoy a glass of wine. The bathroom is the largest of the 4 B&B's we tried on this trip. Pam, our hostess, was gracious, welcoming and helpful, without being pushy in her suggestions of places to dine and things to do. The breakfast was beyond excellent......a sideboard buffet loaded with homemade baked goods (best blueberry scones in America!), fresh fruit, yoghurt, homemade granola, coffee, tea, etc. Then there is a menu of hot food that is cooked per your order. We had eggs one day and blueberry pancakes another, both served with crispy bacon. Can't think of a better way to start the day.
But it's the details that set this inn apart and make it excellent value for the money........4 Turkish towels in the bathroom instead of two that we found in other comparably priced inns.....platters of cookies and other baked treats on the table in the foyer, to tempt you as you are coming and going......flexible breakfast time from 8-10am as opposed to the "one seating" policy in many other inns.
If you are looking for a cozy, relaxing, welcoming place to base your visit to Acadia, choose this inn. You will be glad you did!

Room Tip: Sargent room is large and comfortable, with a fireplace and its own private covered porch.

The location is very good, close enough to walk easily to the centre of Bar Harbor, but on a very quiet street. We had an excellent room, with a view across to the sea. The wifi functioned well and the breakfast was good, albeit quite full. My grading of very good may seem grudging, but as an inn it just falls short of excellent (as a motel it would presumably be superb).

During our recent visit to Bar Harbor/Acadia, we stayed in the Motel (Room#2 for 2 nights) which fit our needs perfectly. It is affordably priced and the location is great - within easy walking distance of all the restaurants and shops, but located on a side street so it’s very quiet with easy parking. Our room was very clean and came equipped with a small refrigerator and a Keurig Coffee maker (K-cups included). The bed was very comfortable and the shower had great water pressure! The rooms in the cottage are more expensive but include a full breakfast. The Motel rooms do not include breakfast and since we were planning on doing breakfast on our own, this wasn’t a problem for us. If you want to eat breakfast at the Inn, you just need to let them know the night before ($15 pp). We especially liked the baked goodies (blueberry scones, pumpkin muffins & chocolate chip cookies) that were available in the Inn lobby! Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions to the various attractions. We will definitely stay here again when we re-visit Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: If you are a very light sleeper or easily annoyed by noises, you might want to get a room on the sec...

Moseley's is about half a block in from the main street ... so a couple of blocks to any of the downtown restaurants and shops, but removed from the main street noise and traffic.
The folks at the Inn are gracious, breakfasts (not part of the room cost) are delicious (it's really hard to put out good eggs benedict in small quantities, but they do), and the room itself was large, clean, comfortable.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in the motel portion ... and room 10 which is the closest room to the Inn, is the one mote...

We were able to secure rooms at the last minute when our reserved motel did not work out. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The best thing is the location just a block from downtown Bar Harbor. I would have expected to pay more for this location. The owners were very helpful and suggested a few restaurants which both turned out to be very nice. The rooms all have Keurig Coffee makers and an ample supply of coffee.

It was a great location - one block off the main street but very quiet. Town, restaurants, boats, etc were all within walking distance.
We stayed in the motel, the room was large, clean an the bed was very comfortable. We had breakfast in the inn, and it was fantastic!

Would definitely stay there again. A great place!
