We really enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Bay Ledge. The view alone from the cliff is worth the price of admission. Rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were superb for the 2 days that we stayed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
I was searching for a B&B property that overlooked the ocean and got so much more. We stayed 3 nights the week before they closed for the season. This is a lovely, homey inn, owned by Jack and Jeani, with a beautiful view of Frenchman's Bay. The rooms were very cozy, the bathrooms updated, and everything was neat and clean. The common areas inside and the walkway outside were charmingly decorated for Halloween. The common areas were inviting, especially the veranda and the indoor dining area, both of which overlooked the bay. Breakfast was cooked by Jeani each morning and was always a special treat. Delicious! Depending on the weather you could sit at a table on the veranda or choose a table inside the dining area which had big picture windows facing the bay. It was a delight to relax and visit during breakfast with Jack and the other guests before heading out for an active day. Any staff that we had the pleasure to meet were very friendly and helpful.
The house, location, food, and artwork are spectacular, but owners, Roy and Helene, are the gems that make this B&B truly wonderful. We just completed our 4th visit over 20+ years and once again, we hated to leave. We love this place!!
Stayed in the harbour suite with our daughter and loved everything- the most comfortable bed of our three week trip, nice spacious bathroom, great breakfast and we loved the village of southwest harbour. Would definitely recommend to friends.
We have been to Bar Harbor Maine several times and we always stay at the Hearthside Bed and Breakfast. Susan and Barry always provide us with scrumptious breakfasts, and wonderful hospitality. Hearthside is only a few hundred yards from the center of Bar Harbor with all it's shops and restaurants. It would be difficult to find a better place to stay.

Had a wonderful time in Bar Harbor, staying at Primrose Inn. Far enough away from the hubbub to be quiet, but within walking distance of Main Street. Loved the Holland room - huge, comfortable bed, great shower, parking right outside our room - no stairs. Loved our stay there.
First time staying at a B&B and it was amazing. They set the standard that my wife and I will judge all others. The owners and staff were amazing. The inn was in the perfect location. You can walk to everything in Bar Harbor. The breakfast was excellent. Highly recommend staying here.
The B&B is a lovely and well-kept place that we have enjoyed during our three-day stay. Don, one of the owners, is friendly and helpful. However, I am not sure if I were to return, probably not. Southwest Harbor is pretty quiet, ideal if you were looking for absolute serenity. We wish to stroll around the main street of a little town after dinner, hence Bar Harbor would have been the better option, also offering a wider selection of B&Bs. Hence I would stay there next time. The room was nice and the mattress very comfortable. The pictures are a true reflection of what you get. I found the room very small though, too small, as we neither had space (other than on the bed) to open up our two large suitcases, nor was there any storage, other than a small closet.
This was a lovely place to stay. We were so pleased to be a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Habor. It's within walking distance of restaurants in the village. Great host - thank you Don for the helpful information. Room was delightful - what more can I say other than don't hesitate. If you're thinking of going to Acadia National Park - this place is ideal.
The innkeeper at the Primrose Inn was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious. Good location as you can walk to the harbor, shops, and Catholic church. Innkeeper recommended the restaurant, Havana, for dinner and it was one of the best meals we have ever had.
Cleftstone was a fine place to stay, but it was just that...fine. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. If we're back in Bar Harbor, we may look for somewhere else to stay because for the same price, we can probably find something a little better than average.
This was our 6th stay at the Clefstone for our Anniversary week! We love Ann and her staff - the rooms are cozy and comfortable, the breakfasts outstanding, and the location just perfect for either going downtown Bar Harbor, hiking Acadia, or scooting over to Schoodic for a day. Highly recommended!
Great stay with awesome scenery, yummy breakfasts, friendly help, and impeccable cleanliness. The only complaint I have is the room seemed stuffy if we didn't keep the window AC unit on during the day. But the towels are great, the beds are comfy, the breakfasts are great, the help is great, the place is decorated cute, the scenery is great, and it is very relaxing and quiet being away from the main part of town just a couple miles away from Acadia. We would definitely stay here again!
This is an excellent B & B that enhanced our visit to Acadia National Park. The Inn at Bay Ledge is pristine clean. We experienced two different rooms that were both very comfortable. The setting is peaceful, about four miles from Bar Harbor, and features a lovely private walkway to a secluded beach. A wide porch offers a scenic view. Jack is a charming host with considerable insight into the area and lots of good suggestions. Breakfasts were tasty. We would happily stay here again on a return trip to Acadia.
This was the best B&B we stayed at. It was fabulous! Everything it claimed to be and more! The private beach was quiet and peaceful and the trails were wonderful - complete with descriptions of habitats, indigenous creatures and their life cycles. It was a great learning experience and fun besides.
I have stayed in a lot of inns over time, I have always enjoyed my stay, but this one takes the cake. Matt and Kristi were the most wonderful hosts, by offering friendly advice we were able to make the most of our two night stay. They add in little extras that make your stay extra special. The house is BEAUTIFUL and wonderfully kept. We stayed in the cottage room and it was perfect for a couple. The room is so charming and welcoming in person, the pictures don't do it justice. The inn was clean, very comfortable, quiet, warm, and tastefully decorated. It's with-in walking distance to town, and bar island for some unique hiking. I loved the views, the backyard and view at breakfast was incredible. I can't wait to plan another trip and stay again.
Very beautifull room. Very good breakfast Frendly inkeepers. Lovelly house very well situated, walking distance to pier and main street. I can not rate dinning!! There was no dinning to rate. I can not submit my rating if i dont rate it. Please delete dinning rating!!!
Stayed here with my wife for part of our honeymoon. Our room was great, and the breakfast was probably the best I have ever had! Just outside of town, easily within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay while visiting Acadia.
The Inn at Bay Ledge was wonderful. We didn't stay in the main house. Our room was the Deer Room. It was located in a cottage, nestled in the woods, across the road from the main house. It was so cool. It looked like a man cave. My husband loved it, after spending several nights in Victorian, lacy, pretty B & B's. The staff were excellent. My only complaint was breakfast. I have issues with my adrenal glands so I have to eat lots of protein, especially first thing in the morning. They served gourmet (?) breakfasts. One morning it was a zucchini soufflé :( Since we were doing a lot of walking - sightseeing and hiking in Acadia National Park I would have loved a big protein packed omelette. Other than that the place was beautiful, clean. And there was access to a beach where we collected some really neat rocks. I would DEFINITELY go back and I have already recommended it to friends and family.
