“What a pleasant place to spend a few days!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2011

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Heathwood Inn. Our hostess Karen was knowledgeable about the area and had many excellent recommendations for dining and activities. She also helped us by calling a local business to check on available services. Karen's breakfasts were delicious and pretty healthy. Our room, and bathroom, was large and roomy and beautifully decorated. My one complaint was that the bed was way too soft. We had a first floor room (the Gorham) and it was a restful quiet place to stay. Once we arrived in Bar Harbor, we were really glad we chose the Heathwood Inn that is outside the city itself. Because we were early for the season, there was a smaller crowd. In another month getting around Bar Harbor itself will be quite difficult. The Heathwood has good access to Bar Harbor and to other parts of the island.

Karen was a great hostess. Her breakfasts were great. She was very helpful with recommendations of where to eat, hikes to go on, things to do, etc. She even let us borrow her hiking guide so we didn't have to buy one of our own. The room was large in my opinion, plenty of room for our stuff. We stayed in the Hunters brook room. The price was very competitive. Overall a great stay, would stay there again!

My wife and I returned to Heathwood for our 20th wedding anniversary. It was also the location of our honeymoon. Although the ownership has changed, the service and quality have not. Karen, the innkeeper, is an excellent hostess who provides wonderful guidance on local activities and dining. I hope that it is not another 20 years before I can return!

Room Tip: Have always stayed in Eden room.

Heathwood Inn was a wonderful find. We had a lovely room, spotlessly clean with a bathroom with a steam shower. The breakfast was fabulous - blueberry pancakes, apple cake, and scones. Our hostess even provided a CD for our visit to Acadia National Park, which was really nice to use to tour the park.

Would definitely recommend this Inn!

Pros: Breakfasts were outstanding, Hostess was extremely accommodating; we requested that the breakfasts be meatless, and she happily fulfilled our request. We stayed two nights in the Acadia room and then when the master bedroom became vacant, we moved there. Both rooms were very clean and the beds were both very comfy. The master bedroom is larger, has a balcony, a steam shower and cost a bit more. This was our first visit to Bar Harbor, so our hostess was an invaluable wealth of local info which we used to the max. We were having such a nice vacation that when we found out our room would be vacant; we ended up staying an extra day. Tip: At Acadia National Park there are numerous ranger led hikes (most of them are free) which we found to be entertaining and educational
Cons: The inn is not exactly in downtown Bar Harbor. It is a short bus ride to town. We were there the same weekend President Obama was there and some of the roads were detoured for security purposes. As it turned out, it was to our benefit that we were not downtown. We found easy access roads to the parks avoiding the town and roadblocks

Stayed two nights at the Heathwood Inn, and found it a charming and comfortable place to stay in Bar Harbor. Karen, the innkeeper, was friendly and helpful, offering dining and sightseeing suggestions. Her homemade breakfasts were fabulous: a delicious baked french toast dish the first morning, and "Heathwood Eggs" casserole the second morning. Fresh fruit, beverages and baked treats accompanied the entrees. Our main floor room was spacious and beautifully decorated, with a huge bathroom complete with a whirlpool tub and a shower. Our friends had a room on the second floor with a balcony and a fireplace along with a steam shower. You're sure to enjoy a stay at the Heathwood Inn Bed and Breakfast.
