“A quiet place in the very downtown”
Reviewed 27 May 2007

I visited The Central House on a memorial day. I booked a room on the 3rd floor. The room was great for the price I paid. Little cozy victorian - styled room. The staff of the inn was pretty gracious and helpful. Their slogan says that The Central House is your home away from home and I am absolutely agreed with it. It is a little bit cool in Bar Harbor in may so do not forget to take some warm cloth with you.

  • Liked — Great lodging at reasonable rate
  • Disliked — There was a permanently crying toddler next door to our room
  • Stayed May 2007, travelled as a couple
