“Great Location and Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

We loved the location. We preferred not to be in the middle of Bar Harbor, and this was perfect in that sense: close enough to Bar Harbor to have easy access and, even more important, a few minutes drive to Acadia National Park. The Inn is in a beautiful setting, overlooking the ocean, with a lovely garden. I wish we'd had more time to enjoy sitting on the porch soaking up the surroundings. Our room was fairly large, with a small balcony; it was quite comfortable, though the decor could use some de-kitsching. Easy to get wi-fi. Decent bathroom. The breakfast main courses were really good, but I'd have appreciated more variety. Some days the only protein was a hard boiled egg. More fresh fruit (please!) and a choice between two main dishes would make all the difference, as would an extra hour (breakfast is served only for an hour, so there's no sleeping in). We did enjoy talking with our fellow guests, and Jack is a very personable host and knows the area really well, so he can make recommendations for activities and restaurants. (I'm sure Jeanie's great, too, but we didn't interact with her.) The innkeepers could fix their online reservation system to make it easier. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Inn, with the above caveats.

We don't often stay in B&Bs because they can be tiny and not so clean. This one is different. We chose an upstairs room with a balcony, which is the way to go! The room and bath were both spacious and spotless (and tastefully decorated) and having a balcony makes the room seem even bigger with it's beautiful view of the bay. And the inn is close to Acadia and away from the craziness of downtown Bar Harbor, but close enough to drive in for dinner if you want to. The owners, Jack and Jeanni are helpful and friendly. Lovely home cooked breakfast can be eaten inside on the porch or outside. And although it was after the season for use, there is an outdoor pool in a nice setting. The grounds are beautiful, too.

Go there and feel welcome! Everything is so nice and comfortable, all you have to do is relax. Jannie and Jake and their helping hands do all that it will be a perfect time. Though we were so far away from our home in Austria we felt at home here!

Our stay here was wonderful! We stayed 2 nights and had our own private deck and view of the bay. It was exactly what my husband I needed. Jack & Jeani are excellent hosts who are extremely attentive. Jack always had a pot of coffee going at 7am and Jeani was baking away in the kitchen. Breakfast was delicious and peaceful sitting out on the covered porch. We had many great conversations with them and their recommendations on places to shop, eat and visit were perfect. I would highly recommend this Inn and can't wait to return next summer!

This is everything we hoped it would be. From the moment you walk into the Inn, the wonderful aroma and beautiful decorations let you know you picked the exact right place for your Bar Harbor stay. The Inn sits on a bluff overlooking the bay with an expertly crafted staircase that let's you go down to explore the beach. Grab a cup of delicious coffee first, then hit the beach, or simply enjoy sitting in the Adirondack chairs watching nature unfold and the fresh ocean air. Don't miss the breakfast, which is a real treat. Beds, goosedown bedding, bathrooms were all first class. Maintenance and décor are obviously top priorities, and the owners, Jack and Jean, made us feel at home. Most definitely plan to return.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Inn have a view of Frenchman's Bay, but the cottages are more woodsy and secluded.

This inn was everything I hoped it would be based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and the Inn's website. It was perfect in every way and I LOVED it!!! The view, the rocking chairs on the porch, the beautiful grounds, especially the flowers, the ambience of the common area, the inviting comfort of our room and the wonderful breakfast. Truly superb!

Stayed two nights at this lovely inn 27-28 Aug 2013. The hosts, Jack and Jean, are the perfect hosts. They are attentive to your every need. We stayed our first night in the Garden Room. Beautifully decorated with a wonderful bed and superior linens. The second night was not in our original plans, but we liked the inn so much as opted for another night. We were in room 9, upstairs with the most superb bed! You must try this inn.

Room Tip: Upstairs for size and view!
