Heathwood Inn
Ranked #26 of 30 Bar Harbor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 July 2011

We loved Heathwood Inn because we were able to stay close to Acadia and yet avoid the busyness of down town Bar Harbor. Karen knows the area well and has lots of good recommendations. We were grateful to be able to borrow a hiking guide from her. She's also a great cook. We really enjoyed staying in the Hunter's Brook Room. It's upstairs, at the end of the hall, on the back side of the house, so it's probably one of the quietest in the house.

Karen is a terrific hostess and the Heathwood is great place to stay in the Bar Harbor area. The Inn is quiet, comfortable and clean. It is close to all the major attractions on Mt Desert Island, yet removed from the traffic and congestion of downtown Bar Harbor. The breakfasts were delicious and Karen goes out of her way to make sure you feel at home!

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!
