Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel

Reviewed 25 June 2014

We stayed here four nights total. We had wanted to stay all four nights in the motel, but there was only a vacancy for two nights at the motel. The motel room (#10) was huge and wonderfully comfortable, and we would have been very happy there for all four days. When it was time to vacate the motel room, the staff moved all our belongings for us into the Beehive room in the Inn. This room had two beds and again, was huge. Small bathroom but fine for us, and a wonderful wall of windows which provided lovely cross circulation when open. We were a short walk to everything, but removed from the Main Street noise. The innkeeper Pam was extremely helpful and we loved Mary, who served us breakfast each morning we stayed in the house. A nice bonus...fresh baked goods in the reception parlor of the main house! Also nice to have a mini fridge in the room. If we ever go back to Bar Harbor, this is the place well stay!

Room Tip: If staying in the motel, ask for room 10.

This was our first B&B experience and it was a perfect one. The furnishings are beautiful and authentic to the house's period without being kitschy. Our second floor balcony overlooked leafy trees with songbirds. Walk to everywhere from here. Wonderful breakfasts. There are a lot of places to stay in Bar Harbor, but many of them are either dumpy motels or very expensive. This was just right and worth every penny.

Room Tip: We loved the Sargent room. I looked around at some of the others, they are all beautiful.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Moseley Cottage. The beds were comfortable, breakfast made to order, clean rooms, and walking distance to everything downtown. Would recommend to a friend. Reasonable price.
Not recommended for honeymooners or families with kids. Creaky wood floors, not a lot of privacy, you have to keep quiet.

Stayed 5 nights at this beautiful home. We were on the third floor in the Beehive Room and it was great. Very spacious and comfortable room, sparkling clean and kept that way daily by the wonderful staff. The breakfasts were so delicious with tasty baked goods made by Mary, who is also a warm, friendly dining room hostess. We walked to the shore path and downtown, a very nice location. It is also off the main drag so was nice and quiet. We loved it!

Room Tip: Top floor is a bit of a climb, but no overhead noise..worth it to us!

Stayed two nights June 6th and 7th. Great time of year to visit before crowds. Very Cute Inn with awesome breakfasts and great hospitality. Made you feel at home as soon as you arrived. One minute walk into town and minutes from Acadia. Plan on going back next year with the familly.

Stay in the inn, not the motel.

Scott and Pam were great hosts.

Wonderful place with warm and personable staff, great location and delicious scones. It was so worth every penny---and we were in the Town Motel. What more can I say since I have to have a 200 word minimum here other than it was perfect for us.

Room Tip: I only saw our room in the Motel part and I was pleasantly pleased with every aspect of it.

Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel is very conveniently located. You can walk everywhere.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. They made sure we got to Acadia Park--worth the short drive.
We stayed in the motel section. Pretty standard for an everyday motel. The Inn looked quaint.
We were not there for an extended time. The Moseley Inn and Town Motel certainly met all our needs.
