“Great place in Bar Harbor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

We've stayed at the Holland Inn several times and certainly plan on returning. The rooms are well maintained and very clean, and are a positive part of the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. In addition to knowing and relating just about everything you'd want to know about Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, Evin prepares great breakfasts - healthy and well presented. The Holland Inn's location is also perfect for us - it's just a short drive to the Park and is also within an easy walk to the center of town. We love it!

Room Tip: The Beech Cliff (extra room) and Pretty Marsh (private deck) rooms are two of our favorites.

Great escape there !
We were 2 and rent the littlest room available.
Great cocooning !! And breakfast was different and delicious.
The owner gave us some cues about the best places and where to go to have a different experience of Bar Harbor.
Thanks !

I loved staying here! The owners are so friendly, the accommodations are so clean, comfortable, and convenient. I felt so welcomed and relaxed, as if I had been invited! The hosts provided such a personal touch.....even a nice bottle of wine waiting for me after a day of being a tourist.

The inn was very clean and quiet, breakfast are really really good, we had a wonderful time here, if you go to Acadia don't search more and stay in holland inn, Evin knows EVERYTHING about Acadia and helps a lot planning your stay.

My wife and discovered the Holland Inn by accident when the B&B across the street which we stayed at once before was full up for another visit and the owner there recommended the Holland Inn. We've never gone back. The rooms at Holland Inn are wonderful---always spotless, always comfortable---and Evin prepares the most amazing breakfasts. It's almost worth going back to Bar Harbor just to sample her creations.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have their own special charm

The owner was friendly and informative but far too flaky and disorganized for my taste. She didn't get around to charging my credit card until months after our stay, and forgot to mention a tax increase that went into effect the day we arrived. There are a number of fabulous B&Bs in Bar Harbor. We won't be staying at Holland Inn again.

We stayed there for 8 glorious nights in August. The Holland Inn has one of the best locations in Bar harbor. It is off the beaten track, but close enough to everything by car or foot. Our room was perfect. We had stayed in the main house, where we just walked down one flight of stairs every morning to have a complete, well balanced breakfast every day. It was like we were @ home. Evin, the innkeeper always made the most wonderful breakfast meals ever. She is also extremely knowledgeable about the entire Mount Desert Island, not just Bar Harbor. She could just about plan your entire day for you. Evin always has the correct & proper answer to any question that you could pose to her. She is a great treasure to have around the Inn. When we come to Bar Harbor, we will always stay @ the Holland Inn. I must add this little FYI. There is only one B & B that serves dinner, it is right down Cottage Street. I have to mention this 'cause "The Black Friar Inn" had one of the best dinners of our 8 night stay. Well worth it!
