“Great choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

Never having been to Bar Harbor, we checked out TripAdvisor before making our decision as to where to stay. We are so glad that we chose the Holland Inn. Evin was very helpful from the moment we got there until we departed. She also makes delicious breakfasts which were for the most part healthy and yummy. The Inn was very quiet and clean. We loved the location since it was off the main street, yet close enough to walk to the shops and restaurants. We stayed in the Ship Harbor on the second floor of the Quietside Cottage. It is a pretty good size room with a king bed, seating area, fridge, microwave and a large bathroom. Overall, we were very happy with our choice. It wasn't the fanciest B&B we have ever stayed at, but it was comfortable and reasonably priced.

The location is great, a short walk to town. Evin is a charming and witty host and makes an excellent breakfast, even accommodated a gluten-free diet. She also had a wealth of information to share on Acadia. Would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: The quiet side cottage was very private

The Holland Inn met all my needs in Bar Harbor. Close enough to town yet far enough to be quiet. Evin makes delicious and inventive breakfasts, is an attentive and helpful hostess and runs an orderly and welcoming B & B

First, great location. Felt homey and comfy. Evin is super knowledgable and fun. She's got a great personality and serves up a yummy breakfast. It was out first time and I'd come back for sure! We had a blast touring Acadia and kayaking in bar harbor.

Stayed here in August for 2 nights. Perfect location. Off the main noisy streets. Stayed in the new Cadillac room. Perfect size, plenty of room. Evin was super nice as was her staff. She cooks a great breakfast. Offers plenty of ideas on what to do. One of the nicest B&B's we have stayed in. Would most definitely stay here again if we come back to this beautiful area.

Had a great stay at the Holland Inn over Labor Day weekend. Can't say enough good things about the innkeeper, Evin. Take advantage of her knowledge of the area. She was very helpful with restaurants, tours etc. Breakfasts were wonderful - always creative.

I would recommend the Ship Harbor room where we stayed. Second floor of back building - very quiet and nice comfortable king size bed with a small sitting room.

We stayed at the Holland Inn for three nights in August. There are not that many big name hotels in the area, so your best bet would be stay at a B&B. Evin, the owner and innkeeper, was very welcoming. When we checked in, she gave us the run down of the area, where to go, how to get there etc...Just enough information to get us started. We stayed in the Pretty Marsh room which is located away from the main house, in a separate cottage in the back. The room was clean and perfect for two people - it had a private bath, outdoor sitting area, tv, mini fridge, sofa and king bed. The location is walking distance to town and there is a supermarket across the street. Breakfast was delicious and can be modified depending on what you like/don't like. I highly recommend staying at the Holland Inn if you are ever in the area.
