“Top notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

This Inn gives you the best of everything. It has its own sanctuary for viewing seals and porpoises, a private beach area for collecting sea glass and watching the lobsterman. You have the resources of Jack and Jeani that have over 25 years of experience in the area so you don't miss any places to eat or see. The location is close to Acadia and Bar Harbor yet far enough away from the crowds. As a side note the rooms are great as are the breakfasts. We stayed 5 nights that went by way to quick. We will try to get back here.

I can't tell you how wonderful our stay was with Jack and Jeani! The inn was beautiful, and provided a perfect home base for our time in the region. And my 10-year old was mesmerized by the location and setting (the beach!!!), but was just as enthralled with Jack's stories (he kindly took time to visit with both of us!).

When (not if) I return it'll be with all my boys...and we can't wait!

This is one of the most charming inns with a spectacular view. If you're heading to Bar Harbor--this should be your first choice as the inn is really special. The attention to detail shows in everything innkeepers Jeani and Jack and their staff do. Our breakfasts were delicious and so nicely presented, cozy fireplaces were lit for a chilly evening and plenty of comfortable places to read and relax both indoors and out. These innkeepers have taken care of the details to make a perfect getaway. Comfortable guest room with lush bedding and beautiful views of the water. Precious Pearl the dog may be the sweetest and most cuddly animal ever to grace an inn! You can't help but want to take her home! Be sure to take the steps down to the water and visit the caves and walk the beach during low tide. Thanks to Jack for sending me to just the right place to take home lobsters for dinner that evening.

Room Tip: Stayed on the first floor in a large room with big windows overlooking the porch and the water beyon...

We chose to go back to bay ledge for our 25th wedding anniversary after having spent our honeymoon there. The new owners,Jack and Jeani, were so welcoming and made us feel very comfortable during our stay. The breakfast were great! We also loved the festive atmosphere as they were decorated for the the fall season and halloween. The staff were also very friendly and welcoming,especially Shelia and Lucia. We stayed in one of the cabins and loved it. Everything is deserving of 5 stars! We would definitely stay here again when in Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: cabin rooms are very private

We have stayed a the Inn at Bay Ledge twice now -- last year and this year -- and we absolutely love it. We stayed in room number 8 -- which opens to a private patio and a gorgeous view of the water. We closed the Inn down for the season in late October -- but our hosts Jack and Jean and staff could not have been more hospitable and welcoming. The breakfasts were all stellar, the inn is cozy and warm with a fire after a day of hiking and biking. And.. the rooms well -- just a great setting to get a good nights sleep, an afternoon nap, or to cozy up with a book. This will always be our "Go To" place when visiting Acadia.

Room Tip: We love Room number 8 for the great views and private balcony

This B&B was the final stop of my fall color trip of New England, and it perfectly ended a lovely trip. Everything on this property is purposefully and beautifully done. If you think, I wish I had a "_____" right there, guess what, it's right there! From the chairs at the end of the walk to the location of the glasses in the bedroom, everything is exactly where it should be. This makes the place feel like "your place" rather than belonging to someone else. The natural beauty is evident everywhere, and it is complimented by the fantastic linens, antiques, and furniture. If you are looking for an incredibly restful place to stay that makes you feel like a million bucks, this is a great choice.

A National Registry Inn that did NOT disappoint. The Innkeeper's Jack and Jeanne are two of the most hospitble people i've met. We stayed 3 nights in the Moose Cottage and it was quaint, clean, serene with lush linens and great breakfast fare. Jeanne does the cooking while Jack entertains the guests. Pearl the Labradoodle greets all the guests with a friendly tail tag. The beach is privately accessible to guests and Cleopatra's Eye is a spectacular thing to see in the early morning/evening. I wish I could rate this lovely place higher!
