This was our first time in Bar Harbor, and Karen made our first trip to Maine was unforgettable. The Heathwood Inn is a very charming B&B, with comfortable rooms for a comfortable price. We stayed in the Gorham room, which had an extremely comfortable bed, large bathroom (with a steam shower and sauna), and charming decor. The breakfast each morning was incredible. Karen made a wide variety of egg bakes and pastries (some of which I obtained the recipe for because they were that good!).
As I mentioned, we were unfamiliar with the area so Karen provided us guidance on restaurants and things to do (hiking, kayaking, whale watching, shopping, wineries, etc). Her reccomandations were flawless as all the restaurants she reccomended were nothing short of excellent. She was also very knowledgeable about the hiking trails in Acadia, and provided guides (for both the hiking trails and restaurants) that were extremely helpful. In response to other reviews which made a notation about the location, it's not a long hike from Heathwood to downtown Bar Harbor (maybe a ten minute drive). When comparing prices to location, it's a no-brainer.
I would highly reccomend the Heathwood to anyone traveling to the Bar Harbor area!
